Jewelry Care

Tonkin Jewelry’s products are made from the sparkling 925 silver with 92,5% of pure silver, and a small portion of other elements (mostly copper) to make them sturdy and easy to craft.

Sterling Silver can get tarnished, therefore, requires special care. The copper reacts to moisture and sulfur in the air, causing the jewelry tarnish. Silver tarnishes faster in areas with high humidity and air pollution. Chemicals like hairspray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, bleach, etc., can speed up the tarnishing process.

Tonkin Jewelry recommends storing your jewelry in a box or pouch for protection. If your jewelry get tarnished, please use toothbrush and toothpaste to clean them, they will be like new!

Size Guide

When shopping for ring or bracelet, it is important that you should be certain about your size. Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle. Same goes for the bracelet.

There is one simple way to double check your size if you are not sure:

Use a fabric measuring tape and measure your finger/wrist. Lie the tape against the skin (do not pull it tight) and record your measurement. If you don't have a measuring tape available, use a flat ribbon and check your measurement against a ruler. After that, divide the number into 3.14 to get the diameter. For normal rings, such figure should be between 1.3cm (33/64 in) and 2cm (25/32 in), average girls’ size is 1.6cm (5/8 in). For normal bracelets, the diameter should be about 5.2cm (2 in 3/64") to 5.8cm (2 in 9/32"). 

Please keep in mind that it is preferable for the jewelry to be slightly loose rather than tight. Consider if you like your ring/bracelet fit to be more on the snug or loose side. If yours is between sizes, we recommend that you round up to the next available figure.
