Ammonite Swirls Beginning

Ammonite Swirls began after consistent encouragement from friends and family. For years I created different styles of earrings and necklaces and gave them away to my loved ones. I was always so proud of my creations and excited to share them. Opening up the Ammonite Swirls shop has allowed me to create an exciting journey and adventure while sharing my fun, funky jewelry with the world. I firmly believe that jewelry can impact mood and can brighten someone's day. This has been my goal. So whether you already wake up ready to conquer your day, or you need a little bright pick me up, I hope you have Ammonite Swirls join you! Nothing but smiles and fun come out of this shop, and I hope you get a small part of this every time you order from me!

What size should I get?

To determine what nose ring size is best for you, use a metric ruler to measure the distance from your piercing to the bottom edge of your nose in millimeters. Reference the infographics in the product photos for a tutorial. I make custom sizes in .5 mm increments so we can really dial in the perfect size for you! The hoop size has nothing to do with how big or small your nose or ear is but rather how high up or low your piercing is located.

If you are still unsure which size or gauge to order, I suggest getting the sizing pack. It's only $5, and you get to try three nose rings in three different sizes and gauges. The link for the sizing pack is: http://etsy.me/2nDUAe5

How do I insert my hoop?

With a gentle motion, twist ends in the opposite direction. Pierce one end through and push ends back together. Each hoop comes with detailed instructions with pictures. I also made this video demonstrating this process: youtu.be/kCSLsN58YLI

What does gauge mean, and what gauge should I get?

Gauge equals how thick the hoop is. The gauges I offer are as follows:
··· 24 Gauge (as thin as a needle)
24 gauge nose rings are very thin, subtle, and malleable. If you need to take your nose hoop out daily, I recommend a thicker gauge nose hoop.
··· 22 Gauge (similar thickness to mechanical pencil lead)
22 gauge nose rings are thin and more durable than the 24 gauge.
··· 20 Gauge (thickest, standard gauge used for new piercings)
20 gauge silver nose rings are the thickest and suitable for customers who need to take out their nose hoops daily.

What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling silver is the standard used for beautiful high-quality silver jewelry. The origin of the sterling silver I use is The United States. We use 925 sterling silver which is 92.5% pure silver mixed with alloys to add strength and durability. In addition, the sterling silver I use is rated as hypoallergenic, does not contain nickel, and is safe for sensitive skin types.

Is this real gold? What is Gold-Filled?

I make my nose rings out of real 14k gold; it is not gold plated. By definition, all 14k gold is gold-filled and not 100% pure gold. (Gold plated and gold-filled are not that same thing) If it were completely pure gold, it would be too malleable and not strong enough for how thin nose rings are. The 14K gold I use is rated as hypoallergenic, does not contain nickel, and is safe for sensitive skin types.

Care instructions for sterling silver, 14K gold, and 14K rose gold

All jewelry will eventually begin to show signs of tarnishing due to exposure to air, moisture, and chemicals. When this occurs, you can clean the discolored area with a jewelry cloth or jewelry cleaner.

*These care instructions only apply for sterling silver, 14K gold, and 14K rose gold

Custom and personalized orders

Everyone has a different nose! That is why I offer custom-size nose hoops to make sure you find the right fit. To order a custom, click on the drop-down menu in your desired listing and select what custom size you would like me to create for you. Shipping time is the same for custom orders!

Can I Return or Exchange?

For the safety of all my customers, I cannot accept returns or exchanges on body jewelry orders, including all hoops. This is due to sanitary regulations. So please get in touch and ask all questions before purchasing to make sure you love your new jewelry.

Please provide the correct address for your order. If you contact us before the order ships, we can update the address. Once an order ships, we cannot issue any refund if the buyer gives an insufficient or wrong address. As a customer courtesy, we are happy to reship orders in this situation as long as the buyer pays for additional shipping charges.

Why should I purchase from Ammonite Swirls vs. other shops?

We are a 21st-century mom-and-pop shop. Each piece is handmade by shop owner Georgia and shipped out by her husband, Antonio. All materials used originate in the USA. Purchasing from us is helping us pay rent, car payments on our Prius, and food for our cats Sprout and Boots.
