These cuff links are ready to ship.

The focal point of these links is a nicely matched set of fossilized trilobites. These little guys curled themselves up into balls in death, and have stayed that way for the last 500 million years. They are a deep, rich slate colour, and have the most amazing ridged surface.

I build these cufflinks of sterling and fine silver, which is then polished to a rich matte brushed lustre. The fossils are held snug to your cuff using a curved, 1/2" bar and disc. The disc is domed, and is about 3/8" across. The trilobites in these links are around 10-11mm across.

The silver on these links has been given a hammered, brushed finish.

Shipping is by Expedited Mail through Canada Post. This has an estimated- not guarateed- travel time of 4-10 business days into the United States. It includes a tracking number and delivery confirmation. If you live internationally, and would like these shipped using regular Air Mail Small Package, the cost is $10. This has no tracking number, no delivery confirmation, and only $100 of insurance.

Frequently asked questions about Specimental

I am always open to hearing your design ideas. Please contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net to discuss design possibilities.
If you are unsure of your ring size, the best way to be sized accurately is by visiting two commercial jewelers. Please ensure they size you using their thin sizing tools- not the wide band sizing tools, nor by having you try on rings from their display.

If any questions arise around being properly sized, I am always happy to help- contact me through the shop, or at treloar@telus.net
All of my pieces come ready to present as gifts, in attractive foil stamped jewelry boxes, enclosed in a lovely Chinese faux silk gift bag.

If the person for whom you are purchasing the piece shares your address, please be aware of the following: International export law dictates that the detailed contents of packages, and their value, be clearly marked on the outside of the package. This means that if they see the package before you do, they can easily tell what they are being gifted with.

I am happy to ship to your workplace, a friend, or a relative, when secrecy is necessary. The very best option is to have your package held for you at your closest Fed Ex store- if you are unsure of its location, I'm happy to help.
At this time, I do not sell wholesale, nor do I place my pieces on commission.
My gold is all recycled- the metal plant I purchase it from has been in business for over 100 years. They smelt their metals to the highest environmental standards, to cause the least impact on the environment. They do not deal with newly mined metals, as these metals cause much greater destruction to the environment.

There is no visible difference between recycled metals and newly-mined metals. There is also no difference as far as the karat of the metals go- 18k recycled gold is exactly the same in constitution as 18k newly mined gold. The vast majority of my clients prefer their metals recycled, as environmental impact is of concern when choosing the perfect piece of jewelry.
No, I cannot. I am not set up to smelt gold in the studio, so am not able to melt down your old gold pieces for you.
I can use your heirloom stones in a new design. The stones must be pulled from their settings and checked for stability by a professional jeweler prior to shipping them to me.
My current production times are listed in my shop announcement. If you need something more quickly, please get in touch via the shop, or at treloar@telus.net

Depending upon my work and family schedule, I am happy to accommodate your rush orders. There is no additional charge for a rush order. However, please do get in touch prior to ordering to discuss your deadline with me.
Yes! All of my pieces are completely hand fabricated in the studio by me, from raw materials. I am able to create any of my designs with any stone, in any composition. In short, you can have your ring absolutely any way you like it. Contact me through the shop, or via treloar@telus.net to get the discussion around your perfect piece of jewelry started.
