About Kameleon Jewelry
What is Kameleon Jewelry?
Kameleon Jewelry is the world’s first, patent pending, sterling silver jewelry collection that offers interchangeability across the entire spectrum of jewelry design. The Collection's 40 base jewelry designs include rings, earrings, pendants, bracelets, necklaces and pins, with natural flowing lines. Each piece is carefully crafted to accept small interchangeable inserts called JewelPops.
What are JewelPops?
JewelPops are the small interchangeable inserts that can be popped in and out of the Kameleon Jewelry designs. The JewelPops come in a rainbow of colors and materials. Some are set with semi-precious stones, Swarovski Crystal, synthetic opals or sparkling cubics and sport outrageous names like "Mochalicious"(Brown Mabe Shell) and "Midnight at the Oasis" (Blue Sunstone), adding a real element of fun to the Collection.
How many JewelPops are available?
There are currently almost 100 designs of JewelPops available. Kameleon releases new JewelPops twice a year.
How does the system work?
Changing a JewelPop insert is a simple and elegant process. Simply apply a little pressure while pushing down on the insert with your finger. You will hear a reassuring pop or click indicating the JewelPop is in position and secure. To remove and replace with a different insert merely push from behind with your finger or use the small plastic JewelCap that comes with each jewelry design and the JewelPop will pop out. It's that easy, very secure and no special tools are needed.
Do I need a special tool?
No you do not need a special tool to change JewelPops. Many People can use their finger it is that easy. Some may find using their finger difficult so we have provided a JewelCap with each piece.
What is a JewelCap?
JewelCaps are the small plastic tool that comes with each piece of Kameleon jewelry. They are shaped much like a JewelPop. Some people find it easier to use these than their fingers when changing out their JewelPops.
Can all the JewelPops be inserted into any piece of Kameleon Jewelry?
Yes the system has been designed so that you can wear any JewelPop with any piece of Kameleon Jewelry.

Are the JewelPops Secure once they have been inserted into the Kameleon Jewelry piece?
Yes, the JewelPops once seated in the jewelry, are very secure. We have tested this product extensively for over two years and have never had a JewelPop accidentally fall out.
Is this magnetic?
No our system is not magnetic as magnetic systems have many disadvantages. Our system uses a rubber seal to secure the JewelPop.
Will the rubber seals ever wear out?
Eventually the rubber seals may wear out or become damaged through misuse. We have conducted over 50 separate tests on the seals. In all our testing each rubber seal continued to function after 5000 cycles. It is important to note, that even if the seals do wear out your JewelPop will not fall out nor is it broken. Simply replace the seal with a new one and you are good to go. Replacement seals are available from all Kameleon retailers.

What about the JewelPops? How much do they cost?

Is there anything else I should know?
Yes. The designers of Kameleon Jewelry have always wanted to give something back to the world we live in. With our jewelry design taking inspiration from the natural world it seemed instinctive that all our packaging material and in store display be 100% recyclable. Even the acrylic display material can be returned to the company for recycling!
A portion of profits generated by the Kameleon Jewelry Collection will also be donated to a non profit environmental group.
All Kameleon Jewelry designs are made of .925 sterling silver and have been finely crafted to accept your JewelPop inserts. The Jewel Pops are set with enamels and precious and synthetic stones. As with all precious metal jewelry special care should be taken, so we have provided you with some easy to follow tips to maintain your jewelry in as-new condition.
- Store jewelry separately so it doesn't scratch other jewelry. Wrap each piece in fine fabric, or use a jewelry box with individual storage compartments. Semi-precious stones can scratch silver or pearls.
- When doing household tasks such as gardening and cleaning, be certain to remove rings.
- Put your jewelry on after washing and applying any makeup, cosmetics or hair spray.
- Take off your jewelry before cleaning or participating in athletic activities, especially while swimming in a swimming pool. The chlorine can cause damage to various gemstones and silver. Gemstones may become loose in their settings (and possibly fall out).
- Avoid storing your jewelry next to a heating vent, window sill or on a car dashboard. Sunlight can cause many colored gemstones to fade.
- Always be gentle with your jewelry. Never tug on gem settings or toss your pieces carelessly in a pile-you may loosen your gem settings, and your pieces may wind up nicked and scratched.
- Never use an ultra sonic cleaner (cleans by using sound waves) on your Kameleon Jewelry. This will strip off the protective coat that helps to keep it tarnish free. It is always preferable to buff clean with a silver polishing cloth.
