ABOUT

Where is the jewellery made?

From 2022 the jewellery will be made in Sweden. Prior the jewellery was made in the UK.

Who designs the jewellery?

All designs are by Annika Burman.

MATERIALS

Is the jewellery made from precious metals?

All metal components are made from 925 Sterling silver or from gold.

What carat is the gold?

The gold used is 18ct. Should there be an excepction, then it will be clearly stated in the product description.

What is vermeil?

Vermeil is a thicker plating of gold on silver where the silver must be sterling, the gold no less than 10ct, and the thickness of plating a minimum of 2.5 microns. We use 3 microns of 18ct gold, plated on sterling silver. 

What is rhodium?

Rhodium is a bright white metal from the platinum family which is often used to plate white gold or silver. It adds brightness to white gold and protects silver from tarnishing.

Rhodium is also available in other colours such as black.

What is oxidised/blackened silver?

The silver is deliberately tarnished black in order to create a design effect. On exposed surfaces the oxidisation will wear off over time, but in hard to reach places the tarnished detailing will remain, provided care is taken. Do not immerse the piece in a jewellery dip or use jewellery polish as it will remove the oxidisation. Clean only the non-tarnished areas with a soft cloth. 

What is a cabochon?

A smooth cut, non-faceted, gemstone

How do I pay for a custom order/commission?

In most cases a custom made invoice will be created for you with link taking you to the website where you can complete the payment. 

Why do you need my mobile number?

Most couriers require a mobile number and so in order to avoid delaying shipping we request this information from all customers at point of ordering. We will not use your number for any other purpose. We communicate with customers by email. 

How do I find my ring size?

You can check for your size here. Measure both your finger and an existing ring that fits, checking both circumference and diameter, is a good method. Note that a ring with a wider band will require a larger size than a narrow band, so measure like for like. Please ensure your ring size is correct before ordering as both re-sizing and additional delivery will be charged for. It is also not always possible to re-size a ring due to gemstones or pattern/design detailing etc.

My ring size is not available on the website

Some rings are only available in a specific size. When all sizes are available the ring will be made to order with a 2-8 week lead time, depending on style and the time of year the order is placed. 'Open' or wrap rings will be made to fit your finger before being shipped so please inform us of your size. Although you can sometimes change the size yourself, this is not recommended as the ring can lose its shape and repatitive bending can cause breakage.  

MADE TO ORDER

Why are some items made to order?

Some items in 18ct gold are made to order, and so are rings which are made to your exact size. The standard lead time will be specified in the product description but you can always contact us for a more exact lead time.

Please note that occasionally can an item which is usually made to order be ready to buy for a limited period of time. 

How long will a made to order piece of jewellery take to make?

Usually 3-4 weeks, but in July/August and prior to Christmas it is likely to take longer. This applies to items made as described on the website and does not refer to a commissioned piece which involve design approval, which will have a longer lead time.

Mid-January to mid-June and September-November. For Christmas gifts, the earlier the better, preferably by early November.

Gold vermeil (plated) items should last a long time without re-plating providing care is taken. Vermeil jewellery should not come into contact with chemical products such as perfume, detergents or lotions, neither should you immerse your jewellery in water, especially not sea/salt or chlorinated water.

Wear and store all stones and beads with the same care. Pearls are especially delicate and might get scratched or lose their lustre if not handled with care.
