Earrings are gorgeous. Everything, in fact, down to the packaging, was thoughtful and lovely. Shipping was very quick, especially given that these came from overseas (I'm in the U.S.) My only (slight) issue is that the posts are a little short. Wish for a bit more length there.
The poetry of things
I have been designing and creating since I was young. I really love goldsmithing, knotting, sewing... anything that allows me to create things, that inspire me. I made an apprenticeship as a goldsmith and studied Jewellery and Objects Design at the University in Pforzheim, Germany. All my pieces are designed and handmade by me in my workshop near Stuttgart, Germany.

Refunds and Exchanges
As a consumer, you are entitled to revoke your contractual declarations within fourteen days without providing any reasons, doing so in text form (such as by letter, fax or e-mail)∗ or – provided that the object is made available to you prior to expiry of the above period – you may also do so by returning the object. The period commences running upon your receiving the present instructions in text form, but not prior to your having received the merchandise (in the event of similar merchandise being delivered in recurrent instances, not prior to the receipt of the first partial delivery) and also not prior to the fulfillment of our information obligations pursuant to Article 246 Section 2 in conjunction with Section 1 paragraphs 1 and 2 of the Einführungsgesetz zum Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch (EGBGB, Introductory Law for the German Civil Code) as well as our obligations pursuant to Section 312g paragraph 1 first sentence of the Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB, German Civil Code) in conjunction with Article 246 Section 3 of the Introductory Law for the German Civil Code. The revocation deadline shall be deemed to have been met where the revocation or the object has been transmitted/shipped in due time.

*Consequences of a revocation*
In the event of a revocation having been effectively declared, the performance reciprocally received shall be returned and any benefits that may have been enjoyed therefrom (such as interest) are to be surrendered. Should you not be able to return/surrender the performance and benefits accrued (such as benefits obtained from use), or should you be able to do so only partially or in a deteriorated state, you will be under obligation to compensate the lost value in this regard.You will be under obligation to so compensate the lost value and the benefits accrued, in the event of the object having deteriorated and for the benefits having accrued, only to the extent the benefits or the deterioration of the object are the result of the object having been handled or managed in a manner extending above and beyond the review of its characteristics and function. The term “review of an object’s characteristics and its function” refers to the usual testing and tryout of the respective merchandise as is allowed in retail shops, for example.
Objects that it is possible to ship in packages are to be returned at our risk. You are to bear the regular costs of return shipment where the merchandise delivered corresponds to the order and where the price of the object to be returned is not in excess of EUR 40, or – where the price of the object is higher – if you have not yet provided the counterperformance or a contractually agreed partial payment. In all other cases, the return shipment of the goods is free of charge. Objects that it is not possible to ship in packages will be picked up at your premises.
The obligation to reimburse payments made must be met within thirty days. The period shall commence running for you on the date on which you send the declaration of revocation or the object, and shall commence for us upon our having received them.
∗ Consumers having their permanent residence in Austria may also declare their revocation without meeting any requirements as to form, and may declare it by telephone, for example; they are not bound to the requirement as to the revocation having to be made in text form.

*Exceptions to the right of revocation*
The right of revocation shall not exist in the event of distance contracts for the delivery of merchandise produced in accordance with customer specifications, or of merchandise that obviously is tailored to meet personal customer requirements.
Additional policies and FAQs
Keep all jewelry in dry storage and do not expose to prolonged periods of time in water. Gentle soap and water rinses for sterling silver and 14k gold fill. Do not scrub or use harsh chemicals. Being kind and mindful of your jewelry will help prolong their life.
Gold-plated: A base metal such as steel or brass is dipped into a bath of electroplating solution, with a lump of solid gold. When an electric current is applied, a thin layer of gold is deposited on the metal. Since the plating is thin, the plate on findings may wear off over time. Store in sealed plastic bags to help prevent tarnishing.
Sterling Silver: is a mixture of pure silver and some other metal, usually copper. The resulting alloy gives the silver strength. The standard is at least 92.5% (.925) silver. Any sterling silver may tarnish over time depending on air, perfumes, skin acidity, and many other environmental factors. Sterling silver may be polished to restore its shine.
All oxidized sterling silver is done by hand and may result in subtle differences of tone and color - it is not a black coating on the silver. The blackened color may fade and change over time creating an aged look.
