About

My story so far...

Hi there! I'm Nicole and I hail from Orkney, a peedie (small) collection of islands just 6 miles north of Scotland. Orkney has no shortage of jewellers on the island and I was lucky enough to start an apprenticeship with, internationally renowned jeweller, Ola Gorie in 2002.

Since then, I have been lucky enough to work with and learn from some very talented jewellers in both Orkney and Aberdeen - where I now live.

My little shop eventually came about after growing demand from friends and family wanting me to create custom made jewellery for them. Seeing their happy little faces after receiving their pieces was the perfect little push I needed to take the plunge and start up Nicole Ferguson Jewellery.

Although my shop consists mainly of sterling silver jewellery, I also work with platinum, palladium, and gold.
Feel free to contact me if you would like one of my pieces to be made in one of these metals or if you have your own design in mind that you would like me to create for you.

Here is a guide to the check-out process: http://www.etsy.com/help/article/339
Shipping
As I am based in the UK, international orders may take 10-21 days to arrive. Items will be posted within 3 days after payment is received.

Items within the UK will be posted 1st class recorded delivery, everywhere else will be via Royal Mail Airsure or International Special Delivery. Once items are posted a convo will be sent with the Tracking Code and link to Track & Trace.

International Customs/Duty are the responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 7 days of receipt so we can amend the problem. I will refund the full cost of the item (within reason) and only after the item has been returned in unused condition. It is the responsibility of the buyer to pay the return shipping costs and items must be returned within 28 days of purchase.

Care is taken when packaging items to prevent damage when in transit and I would hope that the customer would respect this by returning items the same way and in its original packaging.
Additional policies and FAQs
All silver is liable to tarnish over time for many reasons. The notion that silver tarnish only occurs with silver jewellery made from low purity silver is not correct. Silver tarnish consists mainly of silver sulphide and some silver oxide, which can develop in damp or humid atmospheres, or when coming into contact with chemicals such as: Hairspray, deodorant, perfume, soap, chlorine, cleaning products, etc…

Silver may also leave black marks on the skin but in most cases the staining isn't caused by an allergy--it's a reaction between the skin and the silver when the jewellery touches areas that perspire – especially rings on a finger.

You can help to prevent your jewellery from tarnishing and keep sparkling for longer by following a few easy rules:

♥ Avoid spraying chemicals directly on to jewellery.

♥ Remove jewellery when in the shower or washing up as soap can not only tarnish it but can lodge in crevices dulling both the silver and any stones it contains. Also remove your jewellery when cleaning, gardening, playing sports, going to the beach (where the sand acts as an abrasive) or performing any other task which might give rise to dents, scratches or abrasions.

♥ If not wearing your jewellery for long periods of time, try to store it in a zip lock bag or air tight container to prevent any moisture from the air reaching it.
An old tip is to place a piece of chalk in your jewellery box/container to naturally absorb chemical residues in the air.

CLEANING:

With the exception of emeralds, opals and pearls, jewellery can be cleaned in warm soapy water, brushing it gently with a soft brush such as a very soft toothbrush. Avoid using detergent (e.g. washing up liquid) as the chemicals can increase tarnishing or may even damage the silver – just plain, simple soap is best. After cleaning rinse the jewellery in warm water and dry thoroughly with a soft towel. If the piece is hard to dry (e.g. chains) then gently use a hair dryer to complete the drying process.

Emeralds, opals and pearls should simply be wiped with a damp, soft cloth since even soap can create a slight dulling of their shiny surfaces. After cleaning, polish them with a dry, soft cloth.

Between cleanings you can use a special silver polishing cloth that both removes tarnish and coats the silver with an anti-tarnishing agent. A single polishing cloth of this sort will last for a long time, still working even when it appears grubby from prior usage.


Snake Chains & Omega Cables

Snake chains and omega cables have an unusual semi-rigid form, which can make them susceptible to kinking. Careful storage is required to preserve their original shape. I would recommend hanging them or storing them carefully coiled in a box to prevent from being squashed.
