The jewelry that I create which has letters or wording on it is stamped by hand, individually, one letter at a time. Nothing is done with a machine. It takes planning and time to create personalized stamped jewelry. With this in mind, please understand that words will not always be perfectly straight and centered. This is what makes each piece of jewelry unique and one of a kind. Even when I try to duplicate an item I’ve made in the past it will not be exactly the same. This is what I love about making handmade jewelry. You can be assured that any item you buy from me is truly unique in its own way.

I make jewelry from many different types of metal. When you are on a product page, click the “Additional Information” link which is under the “Description” (left of the description paragraph). All of the details, sizing, metal(s), etc will be shown in this area.
No. I personally think that a .925 stamp detracts from the appearance of jewelry. I buy my raw sheets of sterling silver from RioGrande, the leading supplier of jewelers. RioGrande has been in business since 1944 and stands behind the quality of their precious metals. If I list an item as “sterling silver”, you can be confident in knowing that it is in fact .925 (92.5%) silver. This will also show in the price of my items. Sterling silver items will always be higher priced, because they are made from real sterling silver which costs more than other metals such as copper and nickel.
It depends on the type of metal used in your piece of jewelry. Most metals will change in some way with age and the amount of moisture they are exposed to. They can oxidize, darken, and patina in different ways. Some prefer the aging patina look while other people do not. If you do not prefer a patina, simply clean your jewelry with a jewelry polishing cloth. Note: some metals can react with moisture and leave a green mark on your skin. The green mark will not hurt you, it’s simply oxidation from the moisture on your skin. If this happens, clean your skin with soap and water and clean the jewelry with a jewelry polishing cloth.
I suggest using a quality jewelry polishing/cleaning cloth. You can find these clothes at most department stores. DO NOT use any type of abrasive or liquid cleaning products on your jewelry. If you have a question about cleaning your jewelry, please let me know.
Copper with naturally age, tarnish and patina over time. It can turn dark and sometimes green depending on what it is exposed to (oils, sweat, etc).
