Frequently Asked Questions

What the heck does 'lab created" mean?  I keep hearing GREEN and ECO-FRIENDLY, but what do those terms mean for me?  Check out some of the questions I have received below, over the years, which might help to demystify the "magic" of jewelry design.

1. How can I find my ring size??

I do have ring sizers, if you want something mailed to you so that you can take an accurate measurement of your finger. The best way to measure is by using a ring that you, or someone else, already has that fits perfectly. There are many online tools to help you measure this ring, and determine what the US size is – or try this website which makes things super easy – findmyringsize.com. If ever in doubt, contact me and I will assist as much as I can.

Keep in mind, wide bands or multiple rings (stacking sets) might fit more "snug" than a thin band ring.  When ordering rings of this type, often people find it more comfortable to order 1/2 size or more larger than their regular ring size.  When in doubt, reach out to me and I am always happy to advise on a good size for you.

If you have given an incorrect ring size, or something arrives and does not fit properly, contact me immediately so we can work things out. You can also read my returns section.

2. What does it mean to be green and eco-friendly??

This term, over the years, has come to mean many different things for companies. Overall it should mean that being mindful of your impact on the environment, people and animals should be paramount throughout your business practices.  What that means for each company will vary, and every small thing we do in the right direction will have a positive impact on our future.  For me it means that I have chosen to use only recycled metals in all of my work.  Why continue to mine and negatively affect our environment when there is so much metal already circulating that would love a new life.

I have also chosen, when possible, to purchase ethical gemstones.  All of my diamonds are conflict free, I offer simulated and lab created gemstones as well so people can make choices to sparkle without the harmful and dangerous gemstone mining that exists all over the world.  I am moving towards my collection to being 100% ethical in its gemstones, and hope to reach this goal in the coming years.

I buy only recycled and biodegradable boxes for my jewelry, and I recycle my packing materials.  I receive many shipments of supplies and tools,  therefore I always reuse packing paper/bubble wrap and more whenever possible.  I also recycle 100% of my scrap metal so it can be used again.

3. What is the difference between lab created & simulated gemstones??

Lab created gemstones have the same chemical composition as their natural counterparts, but are made in a lab under controlled conditions.  This results in your favorite "expensive" gemstones being available, with flawless color and clarity.  Simulated stones are gemstones colored to match their natural counterparts, often times quartz is used as a foundation to achieve this.

4. What is your return policy?

All items from my shop are brand new, never worn, custom made, and always HANDMADE when you order.  I will only accept cancellation of orders within 48 hours of purchase. After that time materials are purchased in preparation, therefore a full refund can no longer be offered. A 20% fee will be charged, or more if the item contained 14/18K gold. 

If you have an issue with your purchase (issue with workmanship, size of the ring, or other issue in how it was created), please notify me within 5 business days of receiving it so we can work something out. I think you will find that I am very approachable and flexible, and it is important to me that you do not experience any problems with your new jewelry.

Since all of my work is made to order, please understand that I can not take a ring back because of a change in your style, that information in my website (description, pictures, measurements, etc) was not carefully read or you have changed your decision to purchase the item. Everything is made especially for you - in your size.  PLEASE read my all of my detailed descriptions and make sure you really want the item before completing your purchase to make things easier for you as a buyer and for me as a seller.


Eco-Friendly and “American Made”

I try to procure most of the elements used in my jewelry from within the US, whenever possible.   I purchase all of my metal from companies that are based in the US, who retrieve their metals from within the US, and who use recycled materials themselves.  I also recycle 100% of my scrap metals – so they enter back into the fold to be used again.  Waste is not an option.


Gemstones

I try to procure gemstones from companies within the US whenever possible.  I do receive a lot of requests for custom work, and sometimes gems are not available other than purchasing from other countries - which I inform my customers of so they can make informed decisions.  Any diamonds that I purchase and use in my designs are procured from either Hoover & Strong or Rio Grande, who both are committed to selling conflict free diamonds.  Some H&S diamonds are also from their Harmony Recycled collection (read more below about this program).  

"A recycled diamond is a naturally occurring diamond, cut & polished from mined rough, previously set in jewelry then removed, and re-introduced into the supply chain for resale.

Diamonds have been treasured as gem stones since their use in religious amulets in India dating as far back as 6,000 years ago.  Approximately 4.5 billion carats of diamonds have been extracted from the ground since large scale mining efforts began in South Africa in the 1870’s. This means many millions of diamonds are part of the world’s existing, above ground, supply of diamonds. In order to reduce the industry’s reliance on environmentally damaging mining practices, Hoover & Strong is proud to participate in the acquisition and reintroduction of these many millions of diamonds back into the jewelry supply chain."
