18 gauge byzantine earrings. Measure approximately 1.25 inches.
Our jewelry is individually built and although very similar, each item will naturally vary and have its own unique details. Many of our items are absolutely one of a kind, if that is the case with a specific item, it will be labeled as a, "one of". Other items may be built repeatedly, which, for us, still means slowly and in small batches.
Our chains and pendants are sold separately. Search "chain" at the top of the page to see what hand-made chains we have available for purchase. We randomly alternate between hand-made clasps and commercial lobster clasps - please reach out if you have a specific preference. If you'd like more guidance, please send us a note and we are more than happy to help. We do charge by the inch for all chain links, bracelets included. We come from a long line of chainmakers and are proud to carry on the tradition. Our chains are all hand-made.
We hand-pick each cabochon, stone, and precious gem used in our works of art, rarely finding or wanting to find two identical. Expect the stone we use in your unique piece of jewelry to have its own characters and vary slightly from the one pictured.
We are real humans - wielding hammers, striking dies, lighting torches, forming the metal, creating each piece, building and working directly with the metal by hand. Please allow up to 4 weeks for fabrication of "out of stock" items to be built. If your special occasion is fast approaching; message us for a "rush order" quote.
For bracelet sizing, measure the circumference of your wrist using a string, then hold the string up to a measuring tape. Remember that number.
Cuff bracelets: Subtract 1-1.5 inches for your cuff bracelet length. Example - if you have a 6 inch wrist circumference, a 4.5 - 5 inch cuff will most likely work best for you.
Chain link bracelets: Add .5-1.25 inches (.5 for a more snug fit, 1 inch for a comfort fit, and 1.25 for a loose fit). Example - if you have a 6 inch wrist circumference, a chain link bracelet length between 6.5 and 7.25 inches will most likely work best for you.
For bracelet generalized sizing for women:
XS - 5-5.5 inch wrist circumference
S - 5.5-6 inches wrist circumference
M - 6-6.5 inches wrist circumference
L - 6.5-7 inches wrist circumference
XL - 7-8 inches wrist circumference
We use a variety of metals, mainly sterling silver, argentium silver, fine silver and high karat golds. We also incorporate copper, brass and bronze. Absolutely all of our "silver" is sterling silver, argentium or fine silver.
