Rings: Please carefully check the ring size you order, I cannot always offer a refund for incorrectly ordered sizes as the piece is specially hand made for you!  I will re-size for a small fee plus postage, If you are unsure or have any questions please contact me directly at frankiebentleyjewellery@gmail.com for advice.

How should I care for my jewellery?
Any silver jewellery exposed to the air will develop a layer of tarnish over time.  This is caused by a chemical reaction between the silver and oxygen, moisture, sulfides and chlorides in the air.  To ensure that your jewellery remains in the best possible condition please keep it in  the packaging it arrives in and occasionally use a soft cloth or silver dip to clean.  Please be aware that Oxidised pieces should not be polished as this will remove the surface colour, the oxidization will fade from time to time and in some cases can be redone for a small fee if required.
