Frequently asked questions

Ring sizing

We offer free ring sizers sent in the mail to double check your size before we start on your ring.
If you need a ring sizer please select the smallest size on the listing and leave a note in the notes box at checkout and we will get one on the way.
If you need your ring sized in the future we can do that for a small fee. Our turn around time is 4-6 weeks.

Warranty

We will cover and replace any lost side gems 3mm and under on all pieces. The warranty includes free gemstone checking, tightening and re-tipping if needed.
We do not cover loss or damage to the main stone but will replace side gems for free within 1 year of delivery date.
Warranty is void if worked on by another jeweler (ring sizing is ok)
We are not responsible for extreme damage or carelessness.

We do not cover any jewelry that is lost or stolen. Please contact your home owners or renters insurance carrier for that coverage.

Processing Times

Made to order items take 4-6 weeks to make. If you need something sooner please contact me to see if we can accommodate you. Rush orders are non-refundable.

We are at our full 6 week turn around time that does not include shipping time. Please allow an additional week for transit in the US or about 4 weeks for international (International shipping times vary greatly and arrival dates are not guarantees but estimates)

Materials

We work in sterling silver, 14k rose gold, 14k yellow gold 14k Palladium white gold. All of our materials are nickel free and we do not plate anything.

Palladium White gold - Is a premium white gold that has Palladium which is from the Platinum family of metals as the alloy instead of nickel. It is nickel free, unplated and a gorgeous gray color with less maintenance than traditional plated nickel white gold.

At Home Cleaning

For at home cleanings I recommend using a soft tooth brush and some warm soapy water. I recommend a mild and natural soap like a Dr. Bronners or a Mrs. Meyers. If your ring has stones you want to be sure to clean behind them as well to help them stay extra sparkly.
If you have a high shine silver ring that you want to stay as shiny as possible store it in an air tight container when not wearing it to avoid oxidization.

Packaging

Every piece is shipped in a tan jewelry box with a Vegan leather top. We also include a polishing cloth with every order.

Care instructions

A little extra care can keep your rings looking and feeling their best.
Avoid harsh chemicals such as bleach remove jewelry when showering, deep cleaning, going in the hot tub, pool etc to avoid buildup.

We have a lot of hardened metals in our world today that can scratch and ding precious metals like silver & gold. Avoid things with metal handles like garden tools. The serrated metal of gym equipment and free weights are the worst it is best to leave your jewelry at home when going to the gym doing yard work etc.
Gemstones vary in their hardness and durability. Softer gems require more care.
Example of softer gems - pearls, moonstone, quartz.
Example of harder gems - sapphire and diamonds.
Research the Mohs scale for more information.

Custom and personalized orders

We are generally able to swap out side stones and center stones to your preference. Please contact us for a quote.

We can make custom versions or variations of our current designs. Things such as a different shape center stone, larger or small center stone, etc.
We will not copy another artists work, please do not send reference photos from other shops.

- We are not able to work with customer provided gems.

- We do not sell unfinished jewelry or semi mounts.

- We cannot alter our rings to fit with a ring you have from another vendor, sorry!
