Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do your rings have fixed sizes?
A: Most do, though some are adjustable. All our jewelry is made in limited batches and many pieces are one-offs, though we occasionally make multiples of our more popular items. When we do, we try to make a range of sizes to suit all our customers and thus ask them (in our item description) to contact us with their preferred size. If that size is unavailable, we will propose the closest matching sizes till we find the right fit for another finger if acceptable. If we are unable to find a ring sized to fit any of the fingers our customer wants to wear a ring on, we refund the purchase in full.

Q: How does one care for brass jewelry?
A: We've found that buffing with a soft dust cloth can do wonders for light tarnishing, but if your piece has oxidized significantly, we suggest buffing it with bit of vinegar till it shines again. We've also heard you can use ketchup, but haven't tried this ourselves and certainly don't recommend it for pieces with lots of nooks and crannies! For those who are not against using chemicals, Brasso works like a charm on smooth pieces and more detailed ones fare well in any Brass cleaning solution.

Q: Anything else I need to know?
A: Brass is an alloy, which means that sometimes it's finish is not 100% even at the joins. You might find a tiny streak of gunmetal on occasion, but it's always at the bottom of the ring and usually completely undetectable especially when the ring is polished. Also, as it is with all handmade items, 'human touches' are inevitable. We hope our customers appreciate, or at least understand this.

Q: Do you gift wrap?
A: Our products come wrapped in a lovely handmade felt pouch - all you need to add is a ribbon and you're good to go! Gift cards can be added upon request.

Q: Do you take custom orders?
A: Currently, no. But we're working on it.

Q: Do you take wholesale orders?
A: Also no for the moment, but we'll see how it goes!

Q: Do you do reservations?
A: Yes, please convo us and if we have the piece you want we will gladly put it on hold for up to 48 hours. Past that point, the item will be re-listed.

Q: When you sell out of a design, is that it?
A: For some of them, yes. But if you have seen an item you like that has sold out, please convo us and we will let you know if we have more, or if we are planning to make more soon.
