10 – PRODUCT CARE
Each piece is handcrafted through manual processes and requires delicate handling.
All products are made of precious metals, which can oxidize over time by exposure to the air and substances from the skin. To prevent the jewellery from oxidizing, we recommend you to gently wipe the jewellery and store inside the jewellery pouch or box when not worn.
In case of heavy oxidation, please use a reducing agent – silver polishing cloth or a silver sparkle bath – to clean the piece, which should be stocked at most local goldsmiths.
Please be aware that our gold plated products are just that – plated. This means that the base is of sterling silver, plated with a layer of 24K gold. We cannot guarantee how long the gold layer will be in impeccable condition, as it depends on how it is worn and handled. Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap and perfume.
11 – SIZING
You can check your ring size using our Size Guide.
When in doubt, we encourage you to buy a ring sizer or go to a jewellery store and have your fingers properly measured before purchasing.
