Jewellery Care

Your Castro Smith piece is crafted to last a lifetime, and whilst fine jewellery is durable, it is also delicate and should be treated with care and respect.

Over time, your piece will evolve and transform, its character will change as you wear it. Sometimes the engraving becomes more visible, and it can also become slightly darker inside, as it collects some ‘life'. Scratches and small dents are not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal wear and tear.

Here's some advice on how to keep your jewellery looking great for years to come.

- Extreme tarnishing can occur when your piece is exposed to chlorine or harsh chemicals, this can damage and discolour the metal. Best advice would be to remove your piece before swimming, gardening or doing household chores.

- At home, you should wash your piece in warm water and use a clean, soft toothbrush to get rid of dirt (be careful not to drop it down the sink!). Finally, dry it with a soft cloth.

If you have any further questions regarding the care of your jewellery please let me know.

Materials & Ethics

I am committed to sourcing ethical and sustainable materials. I carefully select each of the suppliers I use, and hand select each stone to ensure quality. I am keen to maintain the highest level of craftsmanship and make sure that customers are delighted with their piece of jewellery.

If you are looking for a certified stone please contact me and I will be able to source one for you.

Ring Sizing

Ensuring your ring is the perfect fit is extremely important to me. Please have your finger accurately measured at a local jeweller before confirming it with me. Be aware that if you're feeling too hot, or too cold, this can affect your finger size so try and take this into consideration.

Alternatively, once your commission is confirmed and if you are able to get to London, you can pop by my studio and I will happily measure your ring size.
