Q: What is your ‘Black’ finish?
A: Our ‘Black’ finish is a special coating we have developed. It forms a molecular bond to the underlying metal. Under normal wear conditions it is very strong and color fast.
Q: How do look after a ‘Black’ piece.
A: It is very hardwearing and no special treatment is required but, like all jewellery, exposure to salt / seawater is not recommended. If it does occur simply rinse in fresh water and pay dry paying special attention to the chain.
Q: How do i look after my 'Black Oxidised' pieces?
A:To create our black pieces, we oxidize the silver/bronze/brass until it turns black. Oxidation is a process that happens naturally, we just speed up the process.
The black oxidation, is designed to fade over time to make your piece unique to you and your experiences. As you wear it, the black will fade to the natural color of the underlying metal. The finish can always be re finished, and we do offer this service. If you would ever like it re finished, just contact us.
Depending on how often you wear your piece, the black can wear off at different speeds. To keep your piece looking black longer we recommend you keep it dry and away from perfumes,lotions and abrasives
Q: My brass /copper jewellery is turning my skin green.why is this happening and what can i do?
A: Some people have strong reactions to these metals, especially on the fingers, while others have no reaction at all. This is unlikely with our pieces as we have specifically treated the surface at the microscopic level.However, if you are susceptible to these reactions, we suggest purchasing sterling silver jewellery.
Q: Can i stop by and pick up my jewellery?
A: Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to accomodate customer pickups. If you would like your order hand delivered, we can arrange a courier service for an additional fee. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
