CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY

To ensure that your RUBERG jewellery stays beautiful for many years, please bear in mind a few simple precautions.

Store jewellery items separately to avoid metal/stone abrasion and damage, ideally somewhere dry with low humidity.

We would advise you to have your jewellery professionally cleaned on a regular basis. To maintain its radiance in the interim periods simply clean your jewellery with a soft toothbrush dipped in warm water and mild detergent. Whilst cleaning be sure to check the stone and setting, making sure that the stone remains secure. Porous gemstones and pearls require only lukewarm water and a soft cloth.

Do not wear jewellery during gym exercise, swimming, gardening or any activity that involves exposing it to repeated knocking or scratching.

All gemstones can easily chip if hit with hard enough force and at the right angle, even diamonds. Emeralds, pearls and opals are particularly delicate and can be easily damaged.

Do not expose your jewellery to temperature extremes.

Try not to wear your jewellery during activities that avoid chemicals or abrasives; avoid contact with nail polish remover, perfume or hairspray.

Some wear and tear on jewellery worn regularly is unavoidable and can serve to enhance the history and the beauty of the piece.

 

PROTECTING DIAMOND & GEMSTONE JEWELLERY

Our jewellery is made with 18 carat gold or Platinum. Due to the purity of the metal, it is quite soft, and therefore needs to be treated with care.

The setting and the stones can both be damaged by sharp impacts that can occur when working with your hands, doing exercise etc. It is therefore best to wear your rings on your non-leading hand and remove them if you know you are about to embark on an activity that may expose them to risk. As the gemstones are set all the way around on eternity rings, the ring is susceptible to damage on all sides and each stone should be regularly checked.

Beaded jewellery with frequent wear will need to be re-strung. When wearing your beaded jewellery, remember to adjust the piece by pulling the chain not the beads.

 

Size guide

WHAT IS MY RING SIZE?

In most cases, rings which are in stock can be sized up or down 1 – 2 ring sizes. So if your ring size is near to the stocked size we suggest proceeding with your online purchase ensuring you note your re-size request in the notes section. Please note our Returns Policy for Special Orders which includes all custom and/or re-sized jewellery.

If you’re unsure of your ring size, we suggest visiting your local jewellers to get an accurate measurement, or pop into our London or Copenhagen showroom for assistance.

 

THE PERFECT FIT

To ensure you get the most accurate ring size, measure your finger at room temperature. Measuring whilst your hands are cold will result in a size too small as your fingers can be up to half a size smaller at this time. Likewise if it is hot your ring size may measure larger than your true fit.

Your perfect ring should fit comfortably, feeling tight enough that it won’t fall off and is still able to fit over the knuckle when you take it off.

 

Provenance

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Since 2004, each original design of RUBERG jewellery is handmade in our studio, meticulously crafted with fine precious metals of 18ct gold, platinum and 925 sterling silver.

As a mark of its provenance and in accordance with the UK Hallmarking Act of 1973, each piece is individually hallmarked at the Assay Office of London. The only exemptions are items which fall beneath the specified weight thresholds. For further information please contact us.

Each jewellery product is handmade and therefore unique and small variations will occur resulting in slight differences from any photographs or items in stock. Stone and metal colours may vary and sizes are accurate within reason.
