  • How do I find my ring size?
    I'd be happy to measure your ring size in the studio! If this is not possible and you want to determine them yourself at home, e.g. if it is to be a gift, I have a few tips for you: First decide which finger you want the ring for! Because the fingers of the left and right hand usually have different sizes, the writing hand is more muscular and therefore a bit larger (this does not apply to pianists, for example, who have trained both hands equally well ;). When determining your ring size, make sure your hands are normally warm. Because the temperature has an influence on the size of the hands - if it is warmer, for example. in summer, after sport or after a warm bath, the hands are supplied with blood more intensively and therefore a little stronger. When it's cold, they contract and become a little narrower. It's easiest if you have a well-fitting ring at home and measure the inside diameter: 15mm inner diameter = ring size 47 15.3 mm inner diameter = ring size 48 15.6 mm inner diameter = ring size 49 15.9 mm inner diameter = ring size 50 16.2 mm inner diameter = ring size 51 16.5 mm inner diameter = ring size 52 16.8 mm inner diameter = ring size 53 17.2 mm inner diameter = ring size 54 17.5 mm inner diameter = ring size 55 17.8 mm inner diameter = ring size 56 18.1 mm inner diameter = ring size 57 18.4 mm inner diameter = ring size 58 18.8 mm inner diameter = ring size 59 19.1 mm inner diameter = ring size 60 19.4 mm inner diameter = ring size 61 19.7 mm inner diameter = ring size 62 20 mm inner diameter = ring size 63
  • How do I find the right CHAIN LENGTH?
    The length of the necklace is largely a matter of personal preference: should it hang very close to the neck or dangle a little lower, like in the 1920s? Chain lengths of 30-40cm are easy to see when wearing t-shirts or blouses with regular necklines. If the chains are 50-100cm long, they are worn over the robe so that they can be seen. For smaller pendants, I recommend delicate & shorter chains, for larger pendants, thicker & longer chains carry the weight better. The larger the pendant, the longer the chain can be.
    Yes - I source sterling silver and gold from the state-approved company in Austria who primarily recycle old gold and silver and melt them back into new gold. I also bring my precious metal leftovers back to you so that these valuable materials remain in circulation and can be used again.
  • What do I need to know about GOLD PLATED JEWELERY?
    All my pieces are high quality electroplated gold plating. A thin layer of 14 carat gold is laid over the piece of jewelery (the sterling silver remains underneath, and gold lays on top). Over time, as the beautiful piece is worn, the gold layer may rub off slightly. Eg in the event of bumps or frequent rubbing against clothing. For sports, rough work, gardening, etc. when showering, I recommend taking off your jewelery beforehand. That way you can enjoy it for longer. If you would like the piece to shine in new splendor, I would be happy to gild the jewelery again for a small fee. It takes about 1-2 weeks and then it's covered with 14 carat gold like new again.
  • What GOLD TYPES are there?
    Pure gold is too soft to make jewelry, so it is alloyed (mixed) with silver and copper. The different mixing ratios of this alloy result in different shades of color and gold content. We use two alloys of gold for jewelry in Europe: 14 Karat or 585 gold: A little more than half of this gold consists of pure gold (585 parts out of a total of 1000 parts are pure gold, the rest is silver and copper). Therefore, it is slightly lighter in yellow-gold color and slightly cheaper than 18k gold. 18 Karat or 750 gold: This gold has a higher gold content (750 parts out of a total of 1000 parts are pure gold). It is a bit more yellowgold-colored, slightly heavier and more valuable, therefore also more expensive. – The Colors of Gold – Yellow gold: The classic with a beautiful yellow gold color. Rose gold: The popular rose gold has a delicate, soft reddish-yellow gold colour. Red gold: Here the reddish copper shines through more and gives the gold a warm red tone. White gold: Palladium is added to pure gold to achieve a silver tone. The advantage over silver jewelry is that white gold does not oxidize black and is more valuable. Because palladium is an expensive metal, white gold is slightly more expensive than other colors of gold.
  • How do I CLEAN my jewelry?
    If your jewelry has become a little cloudy from wearing it, it's time for a cleaning bath. Precious stones in particular can hide their shine with hand or sun cream, for example. Put your gold & silver jewelery in lukewarm water for 15-30 minutes. This makes it easier to remove dirty particles. Take a soft brush (e.g. an old, soft toothbrush) and gently brush your jewelery under lukewarm water with a little pH-neutral, mild detergent or gentle washing-up liquid. NOTE: • With coral or pearls and organic materials, it is essential to avoid soap and cleaning agents, as this takes away their beautiful shine! • With gemstones, please be careful when cleaning by hand so that the setting remains nice and stable and the stones continue to hold well. eg the pins of the delicate claw setting need special care. If you are unsure, please come by! Silver jewellery If your silver jewelry turns black over time, you can use silver polish. Oxidation is easy to avoid if you wear your beautiful piece frequently, because contact with skin and clothing prevents oxidation! New splendor If you want your jewelery to shine again or if it is very dirty, please come by and I will be happy to clean, polish or matt your beautiful piece for a small fee. Depending on how long I work, I can either do it immediately or you have to go without your favorite pieces for a few days, but then you'll have them back to their former glory!
  • How to care for jewelry with GEMSTONES?
    Gemstone Even the hardest gems like to be treated gently! Protect them from impact or aggressive liquids such as perfumes, chlorinated water, detergents or sunscreen. The easiest way is to put on your piece of jewelery last, after your robe & take it off again before you take it off - this way you protect your clothes from getting caught on a fine stone setting, for example. To keep the good piece sparkling and beautiful, it is worth putting the jewelery in lukewarm water from time to time so that it becomes radiantly beautiful! If it becomes cloudy (e.g. due to hand creams), you are very welcome to come by and I will professionally clean the piece of jewelery for you. It's always a treat to see the colors and shine come back!
  • How do I clean and care for PEARLS?
    Because pearls are a special, organic product, they like to be treated with care. Avoid contact with aggressive liquids: they don't like alcohol (e.g. from perfumes), sweat, strong soap (shower gel), chlorinated water or cleaning agents - simply take off your pearl jewelry before showering, exercising and other physical exertion. And don't put it on until you've sprayed on your perfume! Another tip: do not store your jewelry in the bathroom with its water vapors (no jewelry likes that, even silver leads to faster oxidation discoloration). This keeps the pearls' soft shine for a long time!
  • I have an IDEA FOR A JEWELRY, can you make it?
    I'd love to! It's just beautiful to design jewelry for special people & occasions. And to make your very own unique piece. Just write me and we'd best make a date where we can discuss your thoughts, ideas and visions and I can supplement them with goldsmithing possibilities, imagination and technical knowledge. After the conversation it is clear what it should be and I will send you a cost estimate. After that you can decide whether you want the piece of jewelery and then I'll start making it!
