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.
USA ring sizes are different from the ring sizes of other countries. If you know your ring size in your country, there are nifty ring size conversion charts online! Just search “Ring size Conversion Chart”.
If you don’t know your ring size, the most accurate way to find your size is by visiting a local jeweler so that they can measure you.
However, there is also an alternate way to find your ring size online through from a printable ring sizer, which you can find by searching online for “Printable Ring Sizer”. Please keep in mind that this method may not be as accurate as visiting a jeweler. Also this ring sizer must be PRINTED at 100%! The ring sizer will not be accurate otherwise. Computer monitors are NOT true to size, and the chart must be printed. At 100% scale.
CAN YOU RESIZE MY RING?
Unfortunately, no, I am not able to resize your ring.
I use traditional torch soldering methods to fabricate jewelry, so resizing is not always possible. I do not currently have laser welding equipment for repairs or resizing. With torch soldering I would have to re-heat the entire piece of jewelry and doing so would compromise the integrity of the design, and any stones would have to be removed, which would once again compromise the design.
If you absolutely must get your ring resized, please take it to a credible jeweler who specializes in repair work. This does not mean another jeweler similar to me online on Etsy or Instagram, it means someone local who has a reputable business in jewelry design and repair (think of places like Samuels Jewelers, Kay Jewelers, or Jared). These business are completely different from what I do. Usually these places are popular stores in town for bridal, anniversary, engagement, jewelry, etc. These types of businesses will have the special type of equipment needed to complete a ring resizing without having to remove stones or heat up the entire piece of jewelry.
This being said, In some cases I may be able to stretch your ring to make it slightly larger, but this is very limited. I might be able to stretch your ring up to a half size, or possibly a full size larger. This is not always possible. Ask me!
Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. But why mix copper with pure silver? You might think, “oh, sterling silver is not as good as pure silver”. It may not be pure, but sterling silver is mixed to this ratio for very good reasons. Silver oxidizes (tarnishes) quickly, leaving it a yucky brown color. Copper slows down this process. Secondly, pure silver is very soft and can bend or break easily. Adding a more durable metal ensures that your silver jewelry will last a lot longer and look a lot nicer. So really, sterling silver, although not pure, is usually the better option when choosing jewelry.
WHAT IS GOLD FILL? WHAT IS GOLD VERMEIL?
Gold fill is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded to brass. Gold fill items can be worn daily for years without wearing through. Gold filled items are 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating, and 25,000 times thicker than gold electroplate.
Gold Vermeil (pronounced vur-MAY) is genuine high-quality .925 sterling silver that has been coated in a thick layer of solid 14k gold. Gold Vermeil is perfect for those with metal allergies due to the durable thickness of gold over sterling. It is the best of both worlds—incredible quality at prices that won't break the bank. Vermeil pieces are stamped with the standard sterling silver purity mark (925 or .925), which tells you that the piece is genuine.
WHAT IS THAT SMALL PIECE OF BLACK PAPER IN MY ORDER?
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.
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.
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.
Customer satisfaction is my top priority. I want you to love your new jewelry! Returns and exchanges are accepted within 30 days of purchase. Please contact for more information if you need an exchange or return for detailed instructions.
