Frequently asked questions about suegrayjewelry

Unsure of the size of a wax seal charm?
I've included measurements in both inches and millimeters for every charm, as well as included a photo with the charm next to an old US dime, which is the same size as todays dimes.

Many of these wonderful wax seal charms are very small and I'm often asked if I can make them bigger.

I cannot make the wax seal charms larger - the charms can only be the size of the wax seal from which they are stamped in the silver.
Sorry, but I don't engrave my wax seal charms - I don't have the equipment or the experience to do so.

It's a lovely idea so perhaps your local jeweler can do the engraving for you.
Packages are shipped with tracking and insurance and most country's postal services can track your package.


If an item is lost in the mail please contact me so that I may file an insurance claim:

If your ring size is not included in the drop down box of ring sizes I can still make a custom size ring for you.
Simply select "other" from the drop down box and add a note, with your ring size, to your order.
Custom rings are not returnable.
The wax seal charms have been oxidized, a process which antiques/ blackens the low areas on the charm, giving it contrast instead of being completely shiny.

If the high areas begin to tarnish and you’d like them shiny again, gently rub a silver polishing cloth over the area to be shined.
