 JEWELRY INFO AND FAQs 

 

Sizing

------------------------

The absolute best way to figure out your ring size is to visit your local jeweler and have them size your finger. 

You may also measure the inner diameter of a ring that fits you, then send us that measurement and we will determine your ring size.

Gold Jewelry Info 

----------------------------------

 

14 Karat gold is an alloy of 58.5% pure gold and the rest is silver and copper.

18 Karat Gold is an alloy of 75% pure gold and the rest is silver and a bit of copper. 

Both alloys are highly durable for lifetime pieces. 

14 Karat is much lighter in color than 18 Karat's rich golden hue.

 Because of higher pure gold content, 18 Karat is of course, a bit higher in price.

22 Karat gold is 93% pure gold and a bit of silver.

 

 

Gold Jewelry Care

---------------------------------------------------

Gold jewelry does not require much maintenance. 

If you would like to clean your jewelry a bit, try a fragrance-free neutral dish soap and a soft toothbrush and softly stroked Rinse with warm water and pat-dry with a very soft cloth. 

Try your best to avoid wearing your jewelry while using harsh cleaning products or swimming in chlorine. 

 

The best place to store your jewelry is in a nice, soft piece of natural un-dyed cotton. 

Keep it in a place where it won't contact other jewels or get scratched. Also a place without moisture is ideal ( so definitely not the bathroom  ;) 

 

Sustainability and Transparency 

-------------------------------------------------------

All jewelry is handmade, polished and finished by Victoria Mingot herself, in only recycled gold or recycled sterling silver in a no-waste process.

All stones are completely ethically sourced and shipped by our one, honest stone dealer. 

All sapphires are either Australian sapphires or Ceylon ( Sri Lankan) sapphires. 

 

I do NOT work with diamonds because of ethical reasons related  to the EXTREMELY poor reputation of the diamond industry and the lasting and unfixable damage it has caused many generations of people and our precious Earth. 

I actively choose to NOT be a part of the misery it continues to cause.
