How can I check my pinky ring size?
If you're in the USA, order a ring sizer from us. You can also get your pinky sized at a local jeweler. Make sure to size the pinky you will be wearing the ring on (left, vs. right) as your hands are not the same size. You can also visit this nifty website: www.findmyringsize.com if you have a ring in your possession that fits, but you need to know the size. A good rule of thumb is to buy a pinky ring two sizes smaller than your ring finger size. We definitely recommend getting sized to be sure. Our standard pinky ring sizes range from 2.5 to 7. If you need a custom size, you can still purchase a ring by selecting CUSTOM. We'll email you for your desired size after you place your order. If you know your size, but it's not in US sizing, visit our Size Chart to convert it. If you're in another country, you can order a sizer on Amazon or eBay.

What is a lab-created stone?
Lab-created stones have the same physical, optical and chemical properties of natural stones, including hardness, density and appearance. Simply put, they are biologically the same (if not superior) to natural stones, but come from a lab instead of the earth. Pretty cool, right? A lab-created stone is not a synthetic gem like cubic zirconia or moissanite. Lab-created stones are conflict-free and environmentally friendly compared to mined stones. We think Mother Nature likes that we use them.
Will my ring get scratched?
Precious metals like Sterling Silver and 14K gold always get scratched, just like we wrinkle when we age. Embrace both scratches and wrinkles. They are symptoms of LIFE.

How should I take care of my ring?
Honor your commitment by taking care of your pinky ring. Remove your ring when engaging with chlorine, salt water, household cleaning chemicals and extreme heat or light. All gemstones are susceptible to being chipping or scratched, so we advise taking your pinky ring off before you do anything too aggressive.
Sterling Silver Care Instructions:
Sterling Silver requires your regular care to prevent tarnish. Acids commonly found in the air, water, lotions, perfumes, soaps and household cleaning supplies can produce a reaction and cause silver to tarnish. The best approach is to get dressed and ready for your day, and then slip on your ring as a final affirmation that your day will be one filled with self love.
We suggest taking off your ring when washing your hands, are in a pool or ocean, excessively sweating, sunbathing, or cleaning, as chlorine, cleaning chemicals and even sunlight can lead to tarnish. It’s also best to store your ring in an airtight box when you’re not wearing it such as the jewelry box it comes in (as air can cause oxidation, and tarnish over time).
If your ring becomes tarnished, don’t worry: caring for silver is easy. You can polish with a silver polish or microfiber cloth, or can create a salt bath as described below. You can also wash with ammonia- and phosphate-free dishwashing soap.
Salt Bath (for Sterling Silver Ring Maintenance):
Fill a cup with hot water. Add one tablespoon of salt and stir until it dissolves. Tear a few strips of aluminum foil and put them in the bowl. Place the ring in the cup and stir. The combination will reach with the tarnish on the silver’s surface to restore the ring’s shine.
Gold Care Instructions:
To maintain the appearance of your gold ring, we suggest removing it before exercising vigorously, going in the pool or ocean, or cleaning. You can wash your hands with it, and even shower, but keep in mind that as with all jewelry, you will need to clean it from time-to-time to ensure it always looks its best.
Gem Care Instructions:
To maintain the brilliance of your gem, simply wash your ring with ammonia- and phosphate-free dishwashing soap and lightly scrub. This will also ensure the brilliance of your band (gold or silver).
Gold-plated Jewelry Care Instructions:
Like Sterling Silver Jewelry, Gold-plated jewelry needs your TLC. Avoid using lotions, perfumes or soaps on your jewelry, and remove it before working out, showering or hitting the pool or beach. Note that over time, gold plating can invariably wear off. Most professional jewelers can re dip your piece for you for a nominal fee.
