What is a Moonstone?
Moonstone is an iridescent, natural gemstone. Moonstones are unique and contain traces of shimmer, striations, clouds. When they face natural light they can give off “moonbeam” flashes of purple, blue or peach. Each one is different and unique in its own way. Some exhibit more cloudiness, some are more clear- each one hand picked, unique and beautiful in its own way.
Plated Jewelry FAQ
Our Gold & Rose Gold Vermeil plated pieces are made with a thick layer of of 18k Gold or 18k Rose Gold coated over a Sterling Silver base. Our pieces wear very well and will not tarnish or turn brassy if cared for properly. Our Silver pieces are sterling silver coated in a thin layer of rhodium. Rhodium adds shine, durability and scratch resistance. Each plated piece is finished with a thin, protective clear coating that helps seal in the plating.
Will my Gold/Rose Gold Plated ring turn colors or tarnish?
All of our rings are sterling silver based. Over time the gold and rose gold plated pieces can start to fade to silver - this is normal. Will they turn brassy or brown? No. We do not use Brass or Copper as the base metal in our jewelry, as these are common culprits that can turn brown, green or dingy over time. Keep your jewelry clean and dry to avoid buildup of dirt and residues. Fun fact- our highest cost in making vermeil rings is the gold plating - we use a thick layer of gold to keep the color in tact for years if cared for properly. (See Plated Jewelry Care, below)
Will my ring turn my fingers green?
No*. All of our rings are hypoallergenic, nickel and lead free. We use .925 sterling silver as the base metal, which is quite hypoallergenic and very kind to sensitive skin. *If you have a copper allergy, avoid rose gold. Copper is used to turn gold from yellow to rose gold in color.
What size should I order?
Please see our ring size guide to determine which size ring you should order. We follow standard U.S. Ring Sizing and our rings run true to size.
Can my plated ring be resized?
Due to risk of damaging the plating, Gold, Silver and Rhodium plated pieces should not be resized.
Can my solid gold ring be resized?
Yes. Solid gold rings are able to be resized at any local jewelry. At this time we do not offer resizing for non-custom pieces.
