Frequently Asked Questions

How should I properly care for my jewelry?

Avoid harsh chemicals and water, especially with silver jewelry and opals. Wash with warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush. Polish with a silver polish or polishing cloth to remove tarnish.

Can I exchange a gift?

We do not accept returns but a piece can be exchanged for credit as long as it has not been worn.  

How do I know what size to order?

Sizing can depend upon the dimensions of a ring, for instance wider rings fit smaller. Also our hands are not consistent. They swell in the summer and shrink in the winter, but any jeweler should be able to size you accurately for a narrow band. 

Can I design something using stones from old jewelry?

Many clients ask if I ever use customer’s stones. Yes! I often reuse the stones from old jewelry that is no longer worn! It is one of my favorite ways to create jewelry as it brings a story into the design process.  

Can I get my old jewelry repaired?

Repairs are done on a case by case basis, but generally I can resize, reshank, replace stones, clean and polish, and much more.
