With proper care, your Silver jewelry will last a lifetime. To minimize damage, store your jewelry in an air tight container (such as the box it arrived in) and avoid exposing it to household chemicals. To prevent tarnish, a dulling that naturally occurs when metal reacts with the ambient air, clean your silver with polishes or cloths formulated to remove tarnish to keep it bright and sparkling. Wearing your jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish. However, Do not polish fully oxidized black jewelry--doing so will remove the black finish. All jewelry comes with a black tarnish strip to protect the jewelry from the elements. Keep this sealed with your jewelry to protect it from tarnish for up to a year.
All of my rings are in standard USA ring sizes. I use extremely accurate sizing methods to get you the best possible fit. The most accurate way to find your true ring size is by visiting a local jeweler so that they can measure you. However, there are also alternative methods such as printable ring sizers available on the internet. If you live outsize of the USA, ring sizes will be different. If you know your ring size, there are conversion charts available online to help you find your USA ring size.
Gold-filled jewelry, also known as "rolled gold", is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to brass. Gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last up to 30 years. Gold-filled items are 50 times thicker than regular gold plating.
Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing which countries and cities/towns choose to charge taxes and customs fees. This is usually on a case-by-case basis, depending on where you live. Anything purchased abroad is subject to being charged customs/duties fees. Generally, a customs fee is charged for processing an import declaration.
All jewelry is handmade-to-order, unless otherwise stated on the item page. Production time takes around 3-7 business days to be completed. Orders are completed on a first-come-first-serve basis. Ready-to-ship products will be shipped within 1-3 days of placing your order.
Domestic packages (within the USA) are shipped via USPS First Class mail with a tracking number for your convenience. Standard Domestic shipping takes about 3-5 days for delivery. Shipping upgrades are available on the checkout screen. International orders (outside the USA) are shipped via USPS First Class International Mail. Standard International shipping takes about 2-6 weeks for delivery. Shipping upgrades are available on the checkout screen.
Orders places in Texas, USA, will be charged 8.25% sales tax.
With every order I ship, I place a small black anti-tarnish tab inside of the jewelry box. All jewelry, no matter the quality, is prone to tarnish from sitting in the ambient air. To help prevent this, I include this tab with your order to help you keep your jewelry looking beautiful. You can store your jewelry in the box it arrived in with the tab to keep tarnish away. Anti-tarnish tabs provide protection against tarnish for up to 12 months. Tarnish-causing elements are absorbed without emitting damaging gases. These tabs will not leave deposits on jewelry items and are non-toxic and non-abrasive.
See my FAQ "Prevent Jewelry Tarnish" for more information on preventing tarnish.
I do my best to photograph and describe my jewelry as accurately as possible. In no way would I ever knowingly misrepresent any items that I sell. I use a macro lens so you are able to get a closer look at the jewelry detail and color, so some items may appear larger than they actually are in the photos. Additional photos are available for most pieces showing the jewelry held or worn on a models hand to help you get a better idea of the size of the jewelry. Also, all sizes and measurements are listed under the item description. Please remember, your monitor color settings may be different than mine, so colors could possibly appear slightly different. I use very accurate white balance settings to show you the most realistic colors possible.
