FAQ:

How will my jewellery last?

Each item purchased via us is made to last a life time with some great care and love towards the item and also basic care instructions.



Why are silver items so expensive?

The way sterling silver jewellery is made is very similar to that of gold items. However, because the metal is softer and with a lower melting temperate it actually is a harder metal to work with and therefore, takes more care and takes longer to work with. This time and difficulty will often reflect in the price of a custom piece, hence the higher price for sterling silver items vs gold.



Can you use my old metals?

Yes we can. We can melt down old golds with or without stones in them. However this process will not save much money as the cost you get back will be the minimal market price from a gold merchant; not the price you paid for across the counter. If your jewellery have gemstones in them, they will be sent back to you unless otherwise specified. Please note often it will cost more to remove set stones from a piece of jewel than money saved, and often not recommended for anything under 2mm per stone in size.





What metal should I choose?

One important decision is which metal you should choose? You may be wondering what exactly the ‘ct’, sometimes seen as ‘K’, refers to. The ‘carat’ of a metal denotes the percentage of pure gold in the alloy, with 9ct being 37.5% and 18ct 75% pure gold. Many come in and ask if it is true that 9ct gold is harder than 18ct gold. This is a misconception. In the case of white gold, the reverse is true, 18ct white cold in considerably harder than 9ct white gold. In yellow and rose golds, the hardness between the two is virtually the same. Gold, in its pure form, is one of the least reactive elements so 9ct gold, having been mixed with a higher percentage of other elements, therefore, is less resistant to exposure to chemicals, such as chlorine for example. Exposure to chemicals and perspiration can mean your 9ct jewellery may appear dull and discoloured. At the end of the day, though more expensive, 18ct gold has twice the gold content of 9ct making it superior in terms of durability and performance.





How to measure my ring size

Many local jewellery shops will measure for free and we can use any sizing from many companies to confirm your ring size. The best thing to do if you have an uncommon size (something really small or really big) is to give us your ring size plus the size in mm. Here is a good website for reference of sizing and how to measure. http://www.ringsizes.co/
