Announcement   Welcome to élk jewellery!! This name comes from my initials, Émilie Leblanc Kromberg.

In 2018 and 2019, I will keep my shop open and you may purchase items but I will not be making any custom pieces. I will be living in the Netherlands and studying fine art. If you purchase an Item, it will be sent from Europe with the same quality and high standards as always.

I love to play with contrast which is probably why I am such a mokume gane fan. Mokume gane is an ancient Japanese Technic that consists of making a lamination of different colored metals, therefore creating beautiful waves on the surface.

Emilie was patient and very helpful while we were coming up with design ideas for our wedding rings. She gave lots of constructive feedback and helped us shape our design ideas into reality. I am completely in love with the way they look, even more so knowing they're handmade with sustainable materials.

gorgeous! understated and yet still eyecatching. they go beautifully with everything so far. :) plus this seller is a gem...we had issues with the post office claiming my home address "doesn't exist", and she made sure to update me on every step of the process. Thank you Emilie! I will be purchasing from you again

    I'm from a Gaspésian village on the east coast of Canada. I always loved to work with different materials. While studying jewelry, I discovered the incredible malleability and coalescence of metal. It has been my passion ever since.

élk jewellery (joaillerie in french)! This company name comes from my initials, Émilie Leblanc Kromberg. I love to play with contrast which is probably why I am such a mokume gane fan. It makes my job a little unpredictable, I love the surprises that I get with every piece finished .

Additional policies and FAQs
MAINTENANCE FOR SILVER AND GOLD WEDDING BANDS IN MOKUME GANE:

* It is best to take of ring when bathing, swimming, doing sports or heavy manual labor. Some chemicals may change the color of the metals, if this occurs, you may use liquid cleaning product for silver to restore the colors.
* The original bushed finish can get scratches and eventually become shinny. If you wish to restore the brushed look, you may use a green scouring pad "scotch-brite". With gentle soap and water rub the pad on the ring in a strait continuous motion following the circle of the ring.


MAINTENANCE FOR MOKUME GANE IN COPPER AND SILVER

* It is best to take of pendant when bathing, swimming, doing sports or heavy manual labor. Some chemicals may change the color of the metals, if this occurs, you may use liquid cleaning product for silver to restore the colors.

* Copper can and probably will tarnish. Becoming darker gives the pattern more contrast, appreciated by some. If you wish to bring back the orangy-pink color of the copper you may use liquid cleaning product.

* The original mat bushed finish of the rings can get scratches and eventually become shinny. If you wish to restore the brushed look, you may use a green scouring pad "scotch-brite". With gentle soap and water rub the pad on the ring in a strait continuous motion following the circle of the ring.

* Natural etching occurs to the copper with time. Depending on the usage and the acidity in the skin. The copper gradually wears down. Look at the last picture of this item:https: //www.etsy.com/ca/listing/60369190/adjustable-silver-signet-ring-with?ref=shop_home_active_1&langid_override=0
It can take from 1 year to 10 years... You may go to a local jeweler and ask them to slightly sand the surface or I can do it free of charge. I do ask the client ti assume the shipment fees in both ways. Note that the more the piece is sanded the thinner it will get. I suggest to do this a maximum of 5 times.


MAINTENANCE FOR SHINY SILVER JEWELRY WITH DARK ENGRAVED LINES

to enhance the shine of the silver you may use a polishing cloth. The use of the liquid cleaning products for silver will make black fine lines disappear. The engraving will still be there but the black will be gone. Therefore I suggest a polishing cloth.


MAINTENANCE FOR STONES

After some time stones usually collect oil, dirt and soap on the underside and inside of setting. Fell free to let the ring soak in warm (to touch) water with a mild soap for a few hours, then brush with an old clean toothbrush.
