Useful Tips and Care Instructions

Useful Tips 

Measure when your fingers are at room temperature.

I work with the ring sizes FR (France) resp. Es-It (Spain, Italy). Compare with the graphic. These dimensions represent the ring dimension in a very differentiated manner.

For a ring with a wide band, please order a number larger than measured (e.g. 17.2 mm = FR 54 for a ring with a narrow band, but for a ring with a wide band FR 55. For a strong finger knuckle even FR 56.

If your knuckle is a lot larger than the base of your finger take the size from your knuckle.
If, despite my tips, you are unsure about your ring size, go to a jewelry store and have your ring size measured there.

Care Instructions

Every piece from my collections are carefully handcrafted.  Following are instructions on how to make your jewelry last a lifetime.

Always protect your jewelry from hard blows, scratching and chemicals.

Please do not spray perfume on all rings with gemstones and do not put them on until the hand cream is already absorbed into the skin. Due to the influence of chemicals, gemstones can lose their shine. You will then go blind.
Never go swimming wearing your jewelry, as chlorine in swimming pools can cause damage to all metals and will completely remove the oxidation from your piece and you also can loose very easy a ring in the water.

 My jewelry often shows gilding and oxidations (blackening). The complete blackening is caused by a chemical process.
Gilding can be done in different intensities. However, they remain thin colored coatings and are not plated with a thin part of gold!

Gilding and oxidations lose intensity during wear or slowly dissapear. This is normal and has nothing to do with the quality of the jewelry production!
If this happens to your jewelry and you want your piece to be all blacked or gilding again don't hesitate to contact me. I'll be happy to help you. You can send me your piece and I'll do a reoxidation and a gilding again for a small cost. But before you send this send me an mail and wait for my confirmation.
