CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY PIECES:
Taking proper care of your jewellery will keep them looking new for longer! Unfortunately, metal jewellery will tarnish, or lose their lustre over time, due to oxygen and moisture they are exposed to. You can however, bring them back to life by cleaning or polishing your pieces.
We highly suggest keeping all jewellery pieces stored in small plastic bags when not worn. This will not only keep metal pieces from tarnishing as they aren't exposed to air, but will also prevent scratches and tangles in chains.
Keep all jewellery away from water, detergents and chemicals - take the time to remove rings when washing your hands, etc.
Brass and copper jewellery can be polished back to life with Brasso and Silvo can be used on silver jewellery! Always use a soft cloth to apply the cleaning liquid and rub it clean.
Silver chains looking a bit tarnished? Line a container with tin foil, add half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, a few drops of lemon juice and boiling water and soak silver chains for a few minutes. Remove once they are clean and rinse them with clean water and wipe them dry with a soft cloth.
DETERMINING YOUR RING SIZE:
When determining your ring size, make sure to measure the finger on which you intend to wear your ring.
There are a few ways to get your size - we highly suggest visiting a jewellery store so that they can assist you in determining your size.
You can measure the circumference of your finger by taking a strip of paper, wrapping it around your finger, and measuring the length where the strip meet. The paper shouldn't be too loose or too tight - it should still be able to make comfortably like a ring! Also make sure to measure it as close the the mm as possible.
You can also measure the inside diameter of one of your rings. Place a ruler across the ring and get the exact measurement from where the ring starts and ends on the inside!
When ordering a ring please supply us with your size or one of the measurements!
DETERMINING YOUR NECKLACE LENGTH:
We have 4 different necklace lengths available - 40cm, 45cm, 50cm and 55cm! When placing your order, please leave a comment with your chosen length.
Don't know which length to choose? Measure an exisiting necklace that you like the length of. Alternatively take a string, measure out the different chain lengths and put the string around your neck to determine where the pendant will end up hanging.
Also see below:
40cm - wraps loosely around the neck
45cm - sits on the collarbone
50cm - sits just below the collarbone
55cm - lays at or above the top of the bust
