about allure style
Welcome to our online store, just like at the markets but open 24/7. We specialise in handstamped stainless steel jewellery, luxe accessories, as well as handcrafted beaded jewellery.
In case I haven't met you at a market before, hi I'm Michelle Pownell 👋🏻
I'm the person who handstamps every piece, paints every glass cabachon (glass dome) by hand for our sparkly and tassel earrings, makes all the jewellery...yeah I pretty much do everything around here.
I've been making jewellery since 2006 and have been handstamping since 2011. If you've wondered why I only work with stainless steel, it's because I personally can't wear sterling silver as it tarnishes too quickly on my skin and leaves a mark on my skin as well. So stainless steel was the best option as it's hypoallergenic and it won't tarnish - 'cause who has time to clean jewellery!
allure style is my creation, and the only way you can buy any of our jewellery is either via our website, or at one of our many market stalls around Brisbane and South East Queensland.
As my stamped jewellery is done by hand, no two pieces can ever be identical. They all have personalities of their own, making them special. I can never guarantee a perfect alignment of the letters, but I would never send out something that I would not wear myself or give to my loved ones. You are buying a handmade piece, so please remember this.
Every metal stamped piece by allure style is unique as they are individually hand stamped and customised to your requirements.
Please note that as some of the stones/crystals are natural pieces, you may find slight differences or blemishes in them as these occur naturally in the stone. These add to the individual style of the piece.
Refunds are available on damaged or faulty pieces only. You will need to return the damaged or faulty item within 14 days of receipt, via Registered Post with tracking for confirmation of return, for a refund on the cost of item only or replacement of identical item of the same $ value.
If you have any concerns, please contact us.
Why Stainless Steel?
At allure style we love our stainless steel pendants. You may wonder why we use stainless steel more often than silver, so here's a few reasons:
Unfortunately, silver does tarnish and oxidize over time, and for some people the oils in their skin can make this discolouration occur quite quickly. Because silver is a relatively soft metal, it may be susceptible to wear such as scratches or dents. If you are looking for an alternative to silver, stainless steel is a great choice.
The stainless steel used in jewellery does not oxidize or tarnish and it holds up to wear much better. To clean your stainless steel, it's as easy as polishing it with a microfibre cloth.
How do I place an order?
Simply browse our online store, select your preferred item, and if it's a handstamped piece then choose your font style and text that you would like stamped.
Please ensure that the correct names or message that you would like stamped is entered into this section correctly as this is what we will be stamping on your handstamped piece. If you have entered the text to be stamped incorrectly and would like the piece to be re-stamped, this will be an additional cost to you.
All personalised handstamped pieces will be created and posted to you within approx 5-10 business days. Postage within Australia is by registered post by Aus Post and can take approx 3-6 business days, particularly during the Christmas period. You'll receive notification once the order has been posted, along with your tracking number.
For international shipping, please allow a minimum of 10+ business days or longer during peak times, for the delivery of your order.
If your order is urgent, then please contact us with your order details and we will accommodate your request where possible.
