⭐ About the Metals We Use ⭐

Sterling Silver ♻️:
Sterling silver, a blend of metals, is prone to tarnishing when exposed to air and moisture, with factors like sunlight and salt water accelerating the process. To maintain its shine, store sterling silver in airtight containers, use tarnish-preventing products, and keep it in cool, dry places. Regular wear often keeps it lustrous, but a polishing cloth can quickly restore its brightness. For tougher tarnish, silver polish paste is effective.

⭐️ S I Z E ⭐️

Our rings are available in standard US whole and half sizes. For custom sizing, please contact us directly.

The font used measures 1.5mm in height, while the plaque width is approximately 2.5mm. The length of the text plaque will vary based on the word length.

We accommodate a single word on this ring, with a maximum limit of 10 characters/spaces. Please note, smaller ring sizes may require fewer characters for optimal design.

When checking out, please specify your chosen word in the personalization field.

⭐ Ring Sizing Advice ⭐

Navigating ring sizes can be as confusing as deciphering clothing and shoe sizes due to the industry's inconsistencies and lack of standardization.

We utilize the Durston PrecisionFit™ Steel Tapered Ring Mandrel from Rio Grande, a trusted professional jewelry supply company, to ensure accuracy in our sizing.

If you're unsure about your ring size, we strongly recommend getting sized by a professional jeweler. For convenience, we also provide a ring sizer for sale in our shop, which you can find here:

Should your ring not fit perfectly, we're happy to exchange non-custom pieces. Please note that buyers are responsible for the shipping costs in both directions.

    How do you know what ring size to order?

    There is a lot of inconsistency
    and precious little standardization in the jewelry industry.

    Much like clothing and shoes, sizes can vary
    depending on what tools a manufacturer uses for measurements.

    We use a Durston PrecisionFit™ Steel Tapered Ring Mandrel
    purchased from the professional jewelry supply company, Rio Grande.

    If you are unsure of your ring size, we recommend getting sized by a jeweler or you can purchase one of our sizers in our shop.

    If the fit of your order isn't perfect, we offer exchanges on non-custom pieces. Customers are responsible for shipping costs both ways.

    About Gold Filled, Rose Gold Filled and Sterling

    Gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film and unlike plated material, the gold layer will not wear or chip off. It has a tarnish-resistant surface but should be cleaned periodically with a polishing cloth to maintain shine.

    Sterling silver is a durable lovely metal that can tarnish. It reacts with chemicals found in the air and the body. If you consistently wear your sterling pieces they will for the most part stay shiny. If you notice dulling just use a polishing cloth to brighten it back up. For more aggressive tarnish we recommend a silver polish paste.

    About Brass, Copper, Bronze & Aluminum

    Bronze, Brass, and Copper are durable, easy to clean, and will last for decades with proper care. They are great options for beautiful and affordable jewelry. One thing to keep in mind, the copper content of these metals can patina but wearing the pieces consistently during daily activities like washing hands and showering will help keep the pieces clean. They can easily be polished back up to a nice luster with a polishing cloth.

    Aluminum is an affordable option to sterling silver. It is super light, hypoallergenic and it doesn’t rust or tarnish. It is easy to clean (a quick wash in soap and light use of a polishing cloth will do). Most aluminum is eco-friendly (recycled).
