ABOUT OUR JEWELRY

Are Spoon Ring Guy ear posts hypoallergenic?

SOLDERING

I have selected several charms that I would like to have soldered on a charm bracelet. What do you charge for this service?

We are happy to solder Spoon Ring Guy for you. First-time solders of our charms are complimentary. To have a Spoon Ring Guy charm moved or re-soldered, there is a $5.00 charge for each solder. If you need several charms soldered to one item, please specify the location and spacing you would like for each of the charms. We will need you to ship your items to us if we do not currently have them. 

RING SIZE

I’m not sure of my ring size. How can I find out what size I wear?

The width of the band is an important factor to consider when measuring for a ring. Generally, a tapered ring will fit your normal ring size while a ring with a band ¼" or wider requires a half size larger. All Spoon Ring Guy rings are available in full and half sizes. For your convenience, download our printable Ring Size Guide or stop in at your nearest jewelry store and ask them to size your finger. If you are near Pipe & Palette Home Outfitters in Plano, Texas. They can help you as well with your correct ring size. 

CARE & CLEANING

How do I properly clean and care for my Spoon Ring Guy purchase?

Polishing jewelry regularly will take care of most tarnishing and cleaning problems and help reduce the chance of skin irritation. We recommend a lint-free polishing cloth which we have available. If your jewelry needs a little more attention than gentle polishing, use a mild detergent and warm water with a soft brush. Avoid the use of harsh chemical dips and only allow a professional jeweler to clean your jewelry. To learn more, see our Care and Cleaning Guide.

How should I properly store my jewelry?

To minimize the chance of scratches, separate your jewelry into a compartmentalized box, and store it in a soft flannel pouch.

Why does my jewelry sometimes leave a black residue on my clothing or skin?

Certain types of cosmetics contain chemicals that can abrade your jewelry, causing a sort of metallic dust. This metallic dust often appears black and can cause smudges on your skin or clothing. To avoid this problem, put on your jewelry after applying your cosmetics.
Black smudges may also be caused by corrosion due to perspiration, exposure to salts and exposure to hydrogen sulfide gas (present in polluted air and industrial chemicals). To avoid these smudges, we recommend that you do not wear your jewelry while handling chemicals or products containing sulfur, and gently polish your jewelry often to remove tarnish.

Why do I occasionally have skin irritation when wearing my ring?

Some people occasionally experience a burning, itching and/or redness, usually on the skin beneath rings. This condition may be due to the build-up of soaps, detergents, waxes, and/or creams, which also cause a dulling film on your jewelry. To avoid skin irritation and to keep your jewelry bright, do not wear your rings when using cleaning products or lotions, and clean your rings frequently.
