Sizing & Care

SIZING

Rings

All rings are sized using USA & Canada sizes. Size yourself in one of two ways:
1. Wrap a taut piece of string around your finger of choice. Measure in inches or millimeters to get the circumference and use the chart below to determine your size.
2. If you have a ring that fits well, measure the inside diameter of the ring by placing it along a ruler in inches of millimeters. Use the chart below to determine your ring size.

Bracelets

To determine your bracelet size, wrap a soft tailor's measuring tape around your arm below your wrist bone. You can also use a taut piece of string and measure along a ruler in inches. Add half an inch to this measurement to determine your bracelet size. 

 

JEWELRY CARE

Metal

Your jewelry may naturally tarnish due to natural reactions to compounds in the air. Sterling silver, brass, and gold can all be polished with the cloth included in your order. 

Alternately, for heavily tarnished pieces, let the preserved metal underneath shine through by gently scrubbing the surface with a soft toothbrush and a mixture of warm, soapy water. Use a clean, soft cloth to dry thoroughly.

Remember to remove brass pieces before showering as brass tarnishes more easily than other metals. Sterling silver, gold, and gold-plated pieces may be worn in water but be sure to thoroughly dry them as soon as possible. 


Plated Jewelry

Gold vermeil and other plated pieces should not tarnish nor be polished! It is normal for plating to wear off over a long period of time and after much wear. If this happens, contact me or visit your local jeweler for a re-plating. If you would like to clean oils off your plated pieces, wash gently (!) with your hands using a little soap and water and use a clean, soft cloth to dry thoroughly.


Pearls


Freshwater pearls are very delicate and should only be washed gently with soap and water.
