      5. PRIVATE CUSTOMER SECTION

      How do I measure my ring size?
      To find out which ring size is yours, check our “Sizing” page. Remember that midi-rings are one-size for the second phalanx, so you can order them without measuring your size. They are adjustable for each finger.

      What is your jewelry made of?
      Almost all our jewelry pieces are produced out of sterling silver 925. We also use natural stones. To keep our jewelry hypoallergenic, we do not add nickel. We use only silver and copper but do not use rhodium plating. Thus, our jewelry pieces keep a warm shade of silver that we all like a lot.

      Why the stone in my jewelry piece looks a bit different to the one I saw on website picture?
      This means that your jewelry is unique and there is no another one with the similar stone. During production, we use only natural stones, and they slightly different from each other. If you would like to see the stone in your jewelry, please, place the request in the special box in your card. We will send you a picture of your jewelry before shipping. Sometimes stones may contain impurities that arise because of a mix of different chemical elements.

      Can I order jewelry with other stones that you don't have in the catalog?  
      Yes, you can write us an e-mail with subject “Special order”. Just write which jewelry you would like to purchase, your stone, and size (if applicable). We will select an appropriate stone for you, and send further details about payment, timing, and shipping when we get your email with the request.

      Will my silver jewelry tarnish? 
      Our jewelry is designed and manufactured following the highest standards available on jewelry market today. However, our jewelry is made from an alloy that contains silver and copper which makes it hypoallergenic. We do not use rhodium plating so that warm color and soft shine of silver are kept.

      However, silver by its nature can be vulnerable to the external environment factors. Therefore, over time, it can darken and tarnish – lose its beautiful luster. This may happen, for instance, because of high humidity or individual characteristics of the skin.
