We utilise 304 stainless steel as the base metal on our jewellery which is generally considered hypoallergenic for most people. As it may contain a low percentage of iron and nickel, we will not encourage it if you have hypersensitive skin.

304 stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion and rust. We have test-proof most of our jewellery in this tropical climate. We can assure you that silver steel is the most durable one. Gold steel is usually vacuum plated, and though it isn't prone to tarnishing, you should still ensure you keep it away from abrasive contact and long-term exposure to humidity. It is to preserve the coating over time.

In rare circumstances, other plated metals may be present. It will tarnish when it comes in contact with air, humidity, perfume, and moisture. Materials like ornamental beads and leather parts are synthetic unless stated on the product pages.

It will be all right if you have forgotten to remove them for your shower. Also, if you find it comfortable, you may go to bed with it. Ultimately the best way to care for your jewellery is to keep it in a clean or dry place and avoid long-term exposure to humidity if possible. Both chlorine and salt water can lead to tarnishing, so those two are best to avoid. You may like to clean the accessory before storing them in the zipper pouch with a clean, dry cloth.

REPAIRS

We stand behind the quality of our work, and with proper care, your accessory should last you for many years. However, jewellery is by no means indestructible. Please do not put your jewellery too far through the wringer without consequence.

Should you require a repair, please let us know with a description of what happened. We are happy to get you fixed up. A small repair fee will apply if the repair is due to undue wear and tear.

RINGS

Our ring sizes are in standard US measurements. The most common ring sizes for women are US 6 and US 7. However, if you are in-between sizes, we suggest choosing the bigger size.
