Do you stamp both sides of the piece?

We only stamp the front sides of the discs or bars as it leaves light marks on the opposite side.

Do you blacken the letters?

Some letters may appear to be blackened due to the photo angle, but we DO NOT blacken the letters after stamping unless you specified on the seller note

  • Do not sleep, shower, bathe, swim, do dishes or household cleaning with chemicals. Tap, well, sea, and pool water all contain a variety of chemicals that can result in damage or excessive wear to metals and stones
  • Do not exercise when wearing your jewelry. Sweat, tugging, pulling, and rough handling can result in broken links, wire, and thread
  • Put your jewelry on after you have applied make-up, hair products, or perfumes. Repeated exposure to the chemicals in beauty products causes your jewelry to lose its sparkle and shine

Sterling silver will tarnish over time:

Salt from your skin and oxygen in air are the two biggest causes of tarnished silver. To avoid this, clean your jewelry frequently. Soap and water will keep your silver looking good. The rules for silver also apply to: gold, gold filled, gold plated, and base metal jewelry, (copper, brass, etc)

For gemstones and pearls:

I recommend cleaning with a damp cloth to gently wipe the pieces. Never use chemicals on gemstones and pearls. Dry completely with a soft cloth. Do not use toothpaste and a toothbrush.

To bring back sparkle to faceted stones and crystals, wash with warm water, mild detergent, (such as dish soap) and a very SOFT brush. Brush the inside and back of the setting. Light comes in through the back of the setting so get that gunk out. Rinse well. Avoid using cleaners such as ammonia since they will remove sealers or coatings on the stones and cause irreparable dullness.

Soft gemstones such as lapis, malachite, coral, turquoise should be cleaned carefully with mild soap. Only the softest cloths should be used

The length is the TOTAL LENGTH of the necklace measured from end to end.For instance, a 16″ necklace length will sit just under the collarbone(not a choker) on a slim/petite neck. For the most accurate length we recommend to measure around your neck or wrist at the spot you want the necklace/bracelet to sit. Wrap a string or cord around your neck/wrist, then measure it. For bracelets add a 1/4″ or 1/2″ depending on a normal or looser fit.

NECKLACE LENGTHS:

  • 14 inches (Choker Style): Fits tightly around the neck
  • 16 inches (Collar Style): Fits tightly against base of throat
  • 18 inches (Princess Style): A common choice for women that will fall just below the troat at the collarbone. This length is popular for adding pendants which will hang over a crew neck
  • 20 to 24 inches (Matinee Style): falls between the collarbone and the bust
  • 28 to 36 inches (Opera Style): falls on the bust an inch or two below
  • 36 to 42 inches (Rope Style): Sit on or just below the center of the bust
