How do I determine my ring size?
Obtaining an accurate ring size can be difficult and we suggest that you be sized by your local jeweler prior to ordering a ring. A wide band in a size 6 will fit more snugly than a narrow band in the same size, so such factors must be considered. Other factors such as temperature, salt intake, exercise and travel can also have a dramatic effect on your finger size, so we strongly recommend that you be sized multiple times to accurately determine your ring size. There is no such thing as a ring that fits perfectly at all times and under every condition. Most of our rings can be resized for a $30 fee. We do not resize silver rings.
Do you offer gift certificates?
We offer gift certificates in any denomination, with a $5 charge for shipping. Please contact us to place an order.
How should I care for my jewelry?
The matte finish on your silver or gold jewelry may burnish or oxidize oiled finish on your wood jewelry may become dull with time. To restore either of these finishes to their original luster, gently buff with a fine grade steel wool (we recommend #0000, available at most hardware stores). For silver pieces that are more tarnished, we recommend using silver cleaner without abrasives, like Tarn-X as opposed to conventional silver polish. Blackened silver gradually fades with wear. While many people appreciate the unique patina, we can re-oxidize your piece for the cost of shipping.
We do not recommend the use of chemicals, commercial cleaners or polishing cloths as they can alter the finish of your jewelry. We strongly recommend removing your jewelry before bathing or swimming. Leather pieces should never be exposed to water. See additional recommendations below.
Sterling silver will tarnish over time. To clean, sprinkle a fair amount of dry baking powder on a soft cloth and rub carefully. Shake the powder off, rinse or wipe clean with a soft cloth. If your jewelry has a satin finish, the metal will become increasingly shiny with wear. To restore the matte finish, rub the metal with a 3M pad scrubby pad (available at most hardware stores) or we can restore the finish to jewelry purchased through our website for a small fee. Please contact the studio for more information.
Gold can be cleaned with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth.
Oxidized (blackened) silver will burnish and develop highlights over time. Do not use chemicals, commercial cleaners or commercial polishing cloths as they will remove the blackened finish. Fingerprints can be removed with warm, soapy water or a soft cloth. Jewelry purchased through our website can also be reoxidize for a small fee. Please contact the studio for more information.
Leather will soften over time and with wear. Exposure to water will hasten the aging process and cause leather to crack. For this reason, leather pieces should never be exposed to water. Leather necklaces and bracelets purchased from the website can be restrung for a small fee. Please contact the studio for more information.
