Zinc and brass jewellery stain my skin after wearing it, what should I do?
Each skin type is different. Occasionally some people may notice reactions on their skin after wearing brass jewellery due to the pH value of their skin. Brass in contact with skin can show the current condition of the body's organism. If jewellery leaves dark stains on the skin, this may indicate that the pH value of your body is unbalanced or is missing some minerals. These changes of skin are harmless and temporary, but if they bother you, avoid buying products made of zinc and brass. Additionally please note that in such cases we are not giving refunds. We believe that most of our products are valuable and original in their own right as every piece is hand-crafted with the additional benefit that eventually they will start looking “antique”.
My jewellery is scratched and looks worn out?
Please read the description of the design and the specifications of the materials used to make the jewelry before purchase. Sometimes we make pieces that look scratched or worn out on purpose.
How do I measure my finger for a ring?
Before you begin taking your measurements, pick the finger on which you want to wear your ring. The fingers on your dominant hand tend to be larger than those on your non-dominant hand, so keep that in mind when measuring for your ring size.
- Take a piece of string, ribbon, thread, or a thin strip of paper and wrap it around your finger, close to the knuckle.
- With a pen, carefully mark the spot where the string overlaps with its end and either hold it up to a ruler that has millimeter measurements, or to the graphic below.
- Use the chart to determine your ring size.
