|A:Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. It is marked for resale with the stamp '925' or '.925' or 'ster'. Copper is the most common metal used as the 7.5 percent alloy balance in sterling silver. It adds hardness to pure silver.|

|Q:How do I clean my sterling Silver Jewellery?|
|A:When polishing your jewellery we suggest the use of a soft silver polishing cloth
available at supermarkets or general stores. If this is not available to you, try using a small amount of toothpaste suds on a soft cotton cloth, please rinse carefully and assure all suds are removed before wearing it.|
|Q:How do I care for jewellery made of multiple materials like brass or copper?...|
|A:Our pieces use real copper and brass - therefore discolouration will occur. This is a natural process (oxidization) and can be successfully re-polished to keep your jewellery looking shiny and new, using a small amount of toothpaste sud and a cotton cloth. Rinse off carefully and avoid contact with gemstones.|
|Q:My ring arrived.... I like it but it doesn't fit... Can I exchange my ring for a different size?|
|A:Please contact me so I can check availability and stock.
Faced with this situation we have found it best to simply refund for the cost of the ring once it is returned to us. Being hand-crafted items, an exact replacement ring can usually not be guaranteed. A refund will leave me free of obligations and you free to choose again.|
|Q:How do I determine my ring or bangle size?....|
|A:I strongly advise to get your ring size measured professionally and free of costs at a local jewellery store. Doing this yourself usually ends with disappointment due to differences in measuring styles.
Please also see my chart for internationally recognized sizes of rings and bangles to determine your size.|
|Q:Should I purchase a larger size for a wider ring band?...|
|A:Our rings are always sized in the middle of the band, therefore compensating for any width the ring might have. If you prefer your ring to fit loosely - just add 1/4 size.|
|Q:Can the clip on the back of a 'stack ring be removed'?...|
|A:The clip on the back of our 'stack rings' are meant to be permanent, however... some of our customers have had the clip removed by a jeweler of their choice so they could mix and match their existing rings.|
|Q:How long will it take until I receive my item?|
|A:Once your payment has been received, your item is send on it's way within 24 hours.
