We promote #wearalways, but there are times when you may want to be more careful and remove your jewelry before doing certain activities.
These times include:
Strenuous activity that involves rubbing against metal such as exercise classes or weight lifting. Cleaning with harsh chemicals such as bleach, especially anything with Chlorine... and make sure to avoid swimming pools and hot tubs with Chlorine, which can cause discoloring and damage to fine jewelry. Also, you may want to avoid activities where your hands get extra dirty, as they can cause build-up on the jewelry (although it can usually be removed easily). This may include activities such as gardening, working with clay, cooking, or using lotion/oils. Please use extra caution with softer stones such as pearls, turquoise, and opals.
In order to avoid tarnishing, it is important to remove any item that is Gold-Dipped Silver before getting it wet or using lotions and perfumes.
If your jewelry becomes dull or dirty, we recommend using a soft brush (a make-up brush or soft toothbrush) and an organic cleaning spray or non-detergent soap. Rinse with warm water and air dry. You can also use a lint-free jewelry polishing cloth. If your jewelry needs a deep cleaning, please take it to your local jeweler or email us.
The best way to store your Starling jewelry is in the box you received the piece in. Any soft fabric bag or box will also do, as long as it is clean and dry.
What if an item breaks after 10 days and I swear it's not my fault?
We stand by the quality of our items. If an item breaks after our 10-day return policy, please send an image of the item to email@example.com. We can then determine the next steps, whether it’s exchanging the item or refunding the repair cost for store credit.
The item broke and it's totally my dog's fault or mine!
That's okay, it can probably be fixed. Send an image of the piece to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can determine our repair charges. Then you can decide if you want to mail it back to us or take it to your local jeweler. Shipping charges will be the customer’s responsibility.
My ring is too big/small. Can you resize it?
Yes! First figure out what size you would like. We have a handy ring-sizing chart on the site. Then email email@example.com with your information. We will get back to you within 24 hours with a quote and timeline.
How do I find my ring size?
