Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

HOW DO I GET MY PARTNER’S RING SIZE WITHOUT THEM KNOWING?

Start by asking your significant other’s friends and family. If they wear rings frequently, try to take one without them noticing to a local jewelry store and ask them to check the size. Be sure to note which finger and hand they wear it on! Each of our fingers are different sizes and they can even vary from right to left hand.
If you still are out of luck, we can try to guess based on their height and shirt size (S,M,L). We can usually get within the ball park.

HOW SHOULD I GET MY FINGER SIZED?

If you are in Los Angeles, you may come by our show room to get sized. If not, any local jewelry store should offer free sizing. When you get sized, take note of which type of sizers they used- thin, wide or comfort fit (meaning they were rounded on the inside). Jewelers will not have quarter sizes, but will be able to determine if you need a quarter size or not.

I JUST GOT MY RING BUT IT DOESN'T FIT! WHAT DO I DO?

We know it is not always easy to get the perfect size on the first try. Lukas Casting House offers one complimentary ring resizing within one whole size (example: that means we will size from a 4 to 5 free of charge)- you just pay for the shipping. If you decide that your ring does not fit, please contact us. It will take approximately two weeks to complete the sizing repair.
**All platinum sizings may be subjected to an additional labor fee.**

DO YOU DO CUSTOM WORK?

Yes! We love to do custom work so please do not hesitate to ask about going custom.

CAN I PROVIDE MY OWN DIAMONDS OR COLORED STONES?

We love to work with your heirloom stones that are from family jewelry. We will do very detailed inspections before we work with your family heirloom stones to guarantee that they can withstand rework without chipping or breaking.
We will NOT work with diamonds or colored stones that you purchased elsewhere. Our goal is to create a more responsbile and ethical jewelry industry and we are very strict with what suppliers we buy from. All of our suppliers are vetted and trusted sources and we will only work with stones purchased from those vendors.

WHAT IS RHODIUM PLATING?

Rhodium plating is necessary to achieve a bright white finish on white gold. White gold’s true color is off white. Since gold comes out of the ground yellow, we add white alloys to it to create white gold. Since we can never achieve a perfect bright white, white gold gets plated with a thin coat of rhodium, a rare metal that is a member of the platinum group.

WHY IS MY SILVER JEWELRY CHANGING COLORS?

This is very common for silver jewelry and it is called tarnishing. The good news is that tarnish only occurs on the surface and can be polished away. If you want your white metal jewelry to not tarnish, opt for white gold or platinum- neither of these metals will tarnish.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN METALS? 14k White gold.

First, let’s explain karat. Karat is the unit used to measure the purity of gold. Pure gold is 24kt, or 100% gold. 18kt contains 75% gold (18/24=.75) and 14kt contains 58.5% gold. The reason alloys get added to gold is to make them strong. 24kt is very soft, making it not very ideal for every day wear. Thus, many jewelers opt to work in 14kt and 18kt which are both very strong.

14kt white gold: 14kt white gold contains 58.5% pure gold and 41.5% alloys. 14kt’s natural color is off white, so it gets rhodium plated to get a bright white color. 14k white gold is a very strong and durable metal and is the most cost effective option for someone who wants white toned jewelry.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN METALS? 14Rose 14Yellow 18White

14kt rose gold: 14kt rose gold is also referred to as pink gold or red gold. It is rosy in color and can vary from jeweler to jeweler. Some can be more orange and some can be more pink. Rose gold is alloyed with copper to get the rosy color. 14kt rose gold is a great metal for every day wear.

14kt yellow gold: 14kt yellow gold is pale yellow or golden in color. 14kt yellow gold is a great metal for every day wear.

18kt White Gold: 18kt white gold contains 75% gold and 25% alloy. Because 18kt has more gold, it is going to be slightly softer than 14kt. It will also have more of a yellow tint, making you notice when the rhodium coating begins to wear off sooner than you would with 14kt.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN METALS? 18k Rose 18k White.

18kt Rose Gold: 18kt rose gold has a very rich color. It is not necessarily more pink since it actually has more gold in it, not more copper. It is best described as a brownish red.

18kt Yellow Gold: 18kt yellow gold is a very beautiful color as it is very rich and more yellow than 14kt yellow gold. We recommend 18kt yellow gold if you are going for a more saturated color for your piece.
