Sizing

All Dangerous Goods Jewellery ring sizes are measured by British and Australian letter sizes.

This website is really handy for checking or converting your ring size http://www.ringsizes.co/.

If you are interested in a thicker band please contact me to go through the sizing process as we will need to allow some extra room.

Please make sure you choose the right size as I cannot offer refunds for jewellery ordered too large or too small. If you are unsure I encourage you to go to your local jewellery store and ask them to size you. Most pieces can be made a few sizes larger for a small fee plus postage. Rings can not be made smaller due to the risk of damaging stones.

Care

Sterling silver is a surprisingly soft metal so please treat your jewellery gently. Try not to bend, twist, put large amounts of weight onto it or tug on it. Scratches will occur naturally as you wear a piece - I like to think these add character.

Aotearoa is largely coastal and because of this it is natural for silver to oxidise/blacken in the salty air. If you live in or visit Rotorua the sulphur has a tendency to turn silver black as well. Wearing your jewellery will help keep it shiny. When you're not wearing a piece you can store it in an air tight container or alongside an anti-tarnish sheet. A metal specific polishing cloth or gem-safe silver dip can also be used to clean your pieces if they become dull. Do not use silver dip on pieces with pearls. Feel free to contact me if you would like some further care advice specific to your piece.

If your piece is intentionally oxidised do your best not to wear it in the shower, ocean, or when washing dishes. Oxidization (blackening) of silver can wear off with time, I am happy to re-oxidize pieces for free if you are able to cover postage and handling. 

Pearls are sensitive and best kept out of liquids and away from oils, perfumes, and cleaning products. Take your pearls off when you shower or swim and try not to rest them on your skin where you've just applied moisturiser or perfume.
