1) How do I return/exchange my ring?
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please refer to our Return/Exchange Policy page for more information.
2) How do I clean/ take care of my ring?
In order to prevent any product build-up such as makeup, hair products, body oil/lotion we recommend cleaning your ring when that first-time sparkle begins to dull! A safe way to clean your ring is to pour a small amount of a mild liquid detergent (pH neutral) in lukewarm water and use a small, soft brush. Soft bristled toothbrushes are actually ideal for cleaning intricate designs which can otherwise be difficult to clean. Rinse and pat dry with a soft, clean cloth. Avoid polishing liquids, ultrasonic cleaning, strong chemicals, and “home remedies”. These kinds of remedies will often damage the surface of the precious metals.
Jewelry tarnishing occurs under moist or wet conditions, especially when also exposed to warmth and air. Your ring should never be worn in the bath, the sauna or when participating in sports. Frequent contact with makeup, hairspray, creams and perfumes can also speed up the tarnishing process. We recommend that you limit your ring exposure to household chemicals when cleaning, or when swimming in chlorinated or salt water, as it can also cause damage. A good rule of thumb is to let jewelry be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you remove in the evening!
When jewelry is not worn, it should be stored be stored away from natural sunlight and heat in a (lined) protective box or in a tarnish resistant pouch.
We believe in the quality and craftsmanship of all of our Kate Sparkle jewelry. As such, we are committed to replacing manufacturing faults free of charge up to 365 days from the original date of delivery.
3) What materials are used for your rings?
All Kate Sparkle rings are handcrafted with a solid, 925 sterling silver base. More information can be found on each product page!
What is 925 Sterling Silver?
Pure silver is usually too soft for jewelry meaning that it will scratch easily. It is therefore alloyed (mixed with other metals) to improve its durability. Sterling silver is the world’s most popular silver alloy. It consists of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. It is excellent for jewelry because it preserves the color, lustre and heft of pure silver and vastly improves its durability!
What is Rhodium Plating?
Rhodium plating is a precious metal belonging to the platinum group of metals. Kate Sparkle’s rose gold, black gold, and champagne gold jewelry is plated with rhodium. The coating of rhodium ensures a bright lustre, durable and scratch resistant surface which can be polished to a high shine.
4) Will my ring tarnish or turn my finger green?
Although that green tinge is often associated with cheaper jewelry, it also happens with the pricey stuff too as it’s a fairly common chemical reaction. The green color is usually a result of a metal in the jewelry reacting with your skin — or something on your skin most likely. Examples include lotion, soap, hair product, and even your own sweat and skin moisture! The easiest way to prevent this green stain is to avoid the products and activities that cause it. For example, taking your jewelry off before washing with soap, gardening and yard work, or styling your hair with products will reduce your chances of going green!
