We're wearing our rings a few weeks now and we are very happy with them. We love the enthousiastic and friendly goldsmith Rita who made them for us. It's a pity we will never need golden rings again.

This ring is fabulous! My fiancé absolutely loves it. The shipping was quick and Rita was lovely! I would definitely buy from her again.

About

All the little things that matter.

My name is Margarita and I'm a self-taught jeweller currently specializing in custom-made (by me) wedding rings in gold and Argentium silver.
This shop is my heart and soul.

I started my journey into jewellery making in 2010. After some extensive research and thorough thinking, I saved up enough money to buy my first tools and set up a tiny bench in the corner of my room. I remember how terrified and excited I was when I lit up my little torch for the first time.
Since then I have spent many hours polishing up my skills and rings.

Creating a piece that will be so special to another person makes my feel fulfilled. I've never looked back since I made my first wedding ring set.
I've been blessed to have many wonderful customers around the world. I find it incredibly satisfying to see the finished rings and know that someone somewhere will wear it for many happy years.

I always strive to do my best when working on an order and I take each step very seriously, assuring the quality and customer satisfaction. I'm on a never-ending journey to improving myself and my skills, yet I take pride in the quality of my work, and each ring is made with great attention to detail.

I work with the following metal alloys:
Argentium 960 Silver
9ct yellow gold
18ct yellow gold

I never compromise on the quality of the materials and tools, buying only from reliable jewellery suppliers in the UK and around the world. The gold and silver I use are recycled and come directly from a British-based company.

I'm proud and happy knowing my jewellery is worn by people around the world.

I'm always happy to answer any questions regarding my work. If you require help with choosing the right ring(s), are on a tight deadline or have a special request, do not hesitate to contact me. I will get back to you as promptly as I can, and, hopefully, you will soon be wearing one special piece, made precisely for you.

Refunds and Exchanges
I take pride in the quality of my work and always double-check every item before posting it to the buyer.

I believe each case should be dealt with on an individual basis, and it’s in my best interest to assure customer satisfaction, within reason.
Additional policies and FAQs
RING SIZING
I highly recommend visiting your local jewellery shop and measuring your fingers professionally. Ideally, try on several rings to "feel" the fit and decide which one is the most comfortable.

Fingers tend to shrink and swell during the day and that may affect the measurements - a knowledgeable jeweller or member of staff should be able to help you determine the correct fit.
If you are in London and don't mind meeting up, I'm always happy to measure your fingers free of charge and give any necessary advice.

Please note, string, paper, wire or printable ring sizers will never give you the accurate measurements. In my experience, measurements are always 4-6 sizes wrong, thus I do not accept those when starting on the order.

Affordable and rather accurate ring sizers are available for purchase here on Amazon. If for any reason you are not able to measure your fingers at the jeweller's, please contact me first before buying a ring sizer.

When using a tie-on ring sizer, make sure it's wrapped tight around your finger and then slide past your knuckle, ensuring the sizer doesn't loosen up. Repeat 2-3 times to confirm the size. Sometimes, when the measurements seem to be between two sizes (for example, L feels rather tight and M - a bit loose), it's best to go for the half size (L 1/2).
Bear in mind though, tie-on ring sizers can still be rather unreliable if not used correctly!

Ring sizers consisting of a set of plastic or metal rings, coming in quarter, half and whole sizes, are usually the most reliable. They are inexpensive and readily sold online. Each ring is individually marked with its size - just find the one that fits well and check what size it is.

There are ring measuring apps and printable sheets available online. If you currently have a ring and do not know the size, you can use those to determine it. The accuracy depends on the sizer, and unless you do not have another option, I do not recommend "taking the risk". Please contact me if you plan to use one of those.


HALLMARKING
I buy my metals from reliable suppliers in the UK, and all my wedding rings come with a set of hallmarks by the UK Assay Office.
My Argentium silver wedding bands contain at least 96% of pure silver - these rings meet the hallmarking requirements for the Britannia silver (.958)


JEWELLERY CARE
When not in use, it's recommended to store your jewellery in a dry place away from the direct sunlight.
To prevent your jewellery from tarnishing, keep it away from moisture and humidity.

Argentium silver is known for its tarnish resistant properties due to the added germanium - just an occasional wipe with a silver polishing cloth will keep your ring clean and nice.
It's brighter than traditional sterling or white gold (and doesn't require rhodium plating!) and durable enough for everyday wear - a ring made out of Argentium silver will last for years.
Argentium silver doesn't contain nickel, so no nasty allergies. It contains higher amount of pure silver than the traditional sterling silver alloy.
I work with both Argentum 960 Silver and Argentium 935 Silver.
