How long do custom orders take?
All Gold and Silver Custom pieces take 5-7 weeks from the time your order is placed. Customs may take a little longer during the holiday season. Customs include all Mothers Jewelry.
Custom copper pieces take 1-3 weeks from the time the order is placed.
When can I place a custom order?
Custom Orders including Mothers Jewelry open on the 3rd of each month at Noon and close as soon as I fill up. I hand make each order myself so I can only take a limited amount of custom orders each month. I recommend placing your order on the 3rd or 4th just to be safe. Sometimes I may fill up on the first day!
What is your jewelry made of?
Any electroformed pieces you see, gold or rhodium, are made first in a copper base. This helps to keep the pieces affordable and is also an amazing metal to work with. All pieces are then plated with a silver barrier. Then the heaviest plating available of 14K Gold or Rhodium is added to finish the piece. Most plated jewelry is 1 micron of plating or less. We plate with 3.5 microns!
Can I shower with my jewelry on?
I recommend removing all metal pieces while showering. You can absolutely shower with your Fabric Cord necklaces on if you wish. All plated jewelry can be worn down quicker with constant exposure to soaps and chemicals. If you want your plated jewelry to last as long as possible, you should take it off when showering, washing hands and applying any oils/lotions. This includes hand sanitizer which does have chemicals and alcohols that will break down the plated metals as well.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY PLATED JEWELRY?
Our copper electroformed rings are plated with gold or rhodium with the thickness of 3.5 microns, which is over 3 times the industry standard of 0.5 microns. Even that will eventually begin to wear through depending on how you care for the jewelry. We do recommend removing the jewelry when showering or sleeping for maximum longevity. When it does eventually begin to wear, just message us and we can talk about re-plating for you!
My plated ring is beginning to wear down... what do I do?
We can re-plate any rings except opal for $25 plus shipping. This takes 3-4 weeks.
Can you resize rings?
Only sterling silver rings can be resized to a larger size. Electroformed rings can not be resized. Electroformed rings include copper, gold and rhodium. Always be sure of your ring size before placing your order.
Do you offer International Shipping?
