This necklace is every bit as gorgeous as the picture suggests - beautifully made and a very pretty design. I've got heaps of complements on it! It also arrived really quickly and was in a lovely little gift box.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 28, 2011
Thank you for reading Vespertine Silver's shop policies.

All of my pieces are lovingly handcrafted by me, Lucy Rowley, in my studio in London UK. The jewelry is made from eco-friendly pure reclaimed fine silver. You can read more about this material and how I use it in the FAQ's below. All jumprings and chains that I use are made of Sterling Silver.

All pieces are one-of-a-kind and unique to Vespertine Silver, with a hand-crafted, artisan feel. They are, therefore, not intended to look perfect in a mass-produced, machine-made way. They are intended to have a slightly worn-in-a-beautiful-vintage-way look to them!

If you have any questions or need any additional information, please do not hesitiate to ask. Thank you!

Additional policies and FAQs

* What is Vespertine Silver jewelry made out of?
The jewelry in this shop is made of eco-friendly pure reclaimed fine silver. This is achieved by a product called Precious Metal Clay, which is a clay-like substance made of millions of pure silver particles, plus organic binder. The silver itself is recycled, which makes it a very eco-friendly material. I mould and shape the clay to form the pieces, sand them down and then fire them, resulting in .999 pure silver. This is a much purer silver than Sterling Silver. An amazing material!
All jumprings and chains are made of Sterling Silver.

* How and why are there blackened/darkened parts on the piece?
I use a substance called Liver of Sulphur to oxidise the silver on certain pieces. This gives it a darkened patina around certain edges, which gives the piece more definition and an antique look. Care should be taken when polishing the piece so as not to rub off this patina. For more about jewelry care, see below.

* How are items packed?
All items come in a smart jewelry gift box and are wrapped with care. You will also receive a jewelry care leaflet and my neat little business card.

* Do you make custom orders?
At this time I do not make custom orders, but watch this space!

* How do I care for my new Vespertine Silver jewelry?
As with all fine jewelry, handle with care. Bathing or swimming whilst wearing your jewelry is not recommended. Spraying perfume on the piece should be avoided. When needed, clean your jewelry gently with a fine silver polishing cloth. Do not use any chemicals as this may remove the patina which gives the piece the vintage look. Storing your jewelry in an airtight plastic bag is recommended to reduce tarnishing.
