I love the rings so much! Great craftsmanship, and I would definitely do business with the shop again!

I had matching rings made as a Christmas present for my sister since the X Files was something we bonded over as children. The shop owner was very flexible with me while we designed a custom inscription for my sister's ring. It was not difficult at all to convert US sizes to UK size- my ring fits perfectly and looks beautiful. I can't wait to give the other to my sister. I highly recommend working with Alice for your own special piece.

Shipped on time, and the etching looks great! Very satisfied with this ring.

How Ardent Argent came to be.

I started off wanting to make jewellery because I could never just find things I wanted to wear, things that let me wear something I knew was geeky but also girly and pretty too. It was that mix of things I wanted that I struggled so much to find.

So I decided the best way to go was to do it myself, I learned from part time classes, the internet, books and by trial and error. I tried the traditional jeweller route, making things that I loved but never felt quite natural for me because they were things I never wanted to wear myself. And very quickly I realised it wasn't my way, so I started working on things I would actually wear, things that reflected my love of comics and Doctor Who, and meant I could legitimately claim watching films or Once Upon a Time was 'research'.

And then I started putting them up in my long neglected Etsy shop and apparently other people liked them too! I am going to be moving on to doing conventions, with stuff a little different from what is in the shop but I am hoping the only way is up.

Please give me 1-3 weeks to dispatch your item, (more complicated items will be the ones that take longer such as rings with stones) as these are handmade goods I may need to make your item or it may require some additional work, we will always dispatch the item as soon as possible.

If the parcel is lost in delivery I will attempt to claim back the money from the postal service to be able to replace your items, however if you believe the item to be lost but the postal service claims it is delivered I cannot refund you or replace the item as I cannot claim back compensation and it cannot be proved the item has been lost due to the fault of the delivery company or myself. I am happy to provide the proof of postage for any item sent you believe to be missing.
Refunds and Exchanges
