FAQs

All of my listings include a detail description of the item, measurements, type of metal, gauge of wire and finish. All of my earrings are created with 20g (for standard ear piercings) and 18g (thicker than 20g).

Photos of jewelry on a ruler show the measurements in centimeters, millimeters and inches.

I take all my photos up close and in natural lighting, but due to computers, cellphones and tablets vary, sizes and colors may appear larger/smaller or lighter/darker than they actually are. Please know that I do my best to describe them as much as possible.
Apologies, but I do not model the earrings, plus most of my work is made to order. However, I do provide photos, measurements, and as much detail as possible in each listing.
All the metals I use do NOT contain nickel.
925 Sterling Silver
14k Gold Filled (Yellow and Rose)
Argentium Silver (highly tarnish resistant & hypoallergenic)
Fine Silver (99.9 pure)
Copper (will patina - darken - naturally in time. I do not use sealants)
Inner diameter (ID) is the inside measurement of a hoop ring and outer diameter (OD) is the outside measurement of the hoop ring.
If you’re not sure what diameter size hoop you need and don't have a caliper, you can measure it with a metric ruler. Place the ruler on your nose and measure the distance between the piercing hole and the edge of your nostril, then add a millimeter so that the ring isn’t resting against your nostril. Or you can go to any piercing shop and have them measure for you. The measurement taken will be the inner diameter needed.

I wear an 18g 8mm ID nose hoop, but it depends on how far up your nose piercing is on what works for you – and your preference. I’ve had some customers tell me they like to wear tight fitting nose hoops and others wear bigger diameter hoops.
Most jewelry will eventually tarnish, but with proper care you can keep it looking good for a long time.

- keep jewelry free from chemicals (hair products, chlorine, etc.)
- store in a clean dry compartment (zip bag included)
- *most tarnish can be removed with either store bought products (polishing cloth, etc.) or homemade recipes. Because there are a ton of remedies, I suggest looking online for the applicable cleaner.

*for jewelry that has been oxidized/antiqued, do NOT use any cleaner as that will remove the intended oxidation.

Note: if you are allergic or have sensitivities to certain metals, it will cause the earring and/or piercing to turn black/green. Please consider this before purchasing as the jewelry cannot be returned.
Please contact me and we'll work together on it. Custom and Reserved orders must be purchased and paid for in full prior to being scheduled for processing. Due to their nature, these are non-refundable. Large orders require addition time to create.
Customer satisfaction is important to me. I package orders with care & attention and like you, expect it to arrive in a timely manner and in the same perfect condition as shipped. However, if your package is lost or damaged (photos required), please contact me and I will be happy to work with you on a resolution. You will not be left empty handed.
Please contact me within 7 days from receipt of your order and I will handle any concerns with immediate attention to resolve it. Mail back to me (in the same excellent condition as I shipped it) within 14 days. I will issue a refund (less original shipping cost) once I receive the item back. If it was my error, a full refund will be issued.
