Why do you sell your earrings as single pieces and not as a pair?

We encourage you to mix and match our styles to create a personal look, which is why we offer earrings as individual pieces. You can order the styles in pairs by choosing ‘Pairs’ in the Select Type drop down. Please note that some of our hoops are sold as a pair.


How many karats are your gold pieces?

All our jewellery is made from either 14 karat gold or 925 sterling silver. You can find detailed information about each style on our web shop.


How do I find my ring size?

To determine your ring size, simply measure the inside diameter of a ring that fits you and use our guide to check your size. You will find the size guide under all rings.


How do I look after my jewellery?

A little TLC goes a long way. To keep your jewellery’s brilliance and protect its durability, remove it while showering and avoid exposing it to chemicals, cosmetics, creams and extreme temperatures.
