Ring sizes?

My ring sizes are in the UK 'letter' format. If you know your size in another format (for instance US) please just select any size and leave a note at checkout specifying your actual size.

I can make a large range of sizes. As a very rough guide most women wear sizes 'I' through to 'R', with M-O being the most common. The smallest sizes are at the beginning of the alphabet.

Please bear in mind that different styles of rings fit differently - ring style, weight, and ring band size all impact upon fit. Additionally each finger will be a different size, and typically ring sizes are slightly larger on the dominant hand. Please message me if you have any questions.

Additional charges - VAT, customs, handling fees

International parcels can be subject to additional charges once the receiving country has assessed the parcel's value at customs.

These policies vary from country to country and these costs are not determined by or collected by, me.

Care for Sterling Silver

Sterling silver: 92.5% silver

Sterling Silver can develop a black/brown patina. It should be worn regularly or stored in an air tight container. Should patina develop it is easily polished with a soft cloth or jewellery cleaner. Avoid contact with chemicals.

Hypoallergenic for most people.

Care for Gold Filled

Gold Filled: real gold bonded onto a base metal (usually brass) with good care it does not chip or tarnish. Harder wearing than most gold plate.

Avoid contact with liquids, perfume, and chemicals. Wipe clean with a soft, non-abrasive cloth. Keep dry and store in an air tight container when not worn. Wipe clean regularly with a soft cloth, this will also bring back shine.

Hypoallergenic for most people.

Care for Raw Brass

Raw brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. When polished it resembles gold and tarnishes to an antique bronze colour.

Brass can develop a deeper colour/patina fairly quickly when frequently exposed to air, warm weather, or stored in damp conditions. This can be removed with jewellery cleaner and a soft cloth.
