No, the photos in Made-To-Order listings show examples of how it may look. We work with Raw Gemstones and no two stones are exactly alike. If you really like a specific photo, let us know when you check out and we can work with you to find the closest stone we have in our collection
To maintain the gold finish, if worn daily, a plated ring will need to be re-plated approximately every 6-12 months. It will not harm your ring to continue wearing it as the plating comes off, but you may see it change colors as this happens since the gold is becoming thin. We do not use any nickel in our plating so there is usually a flash plate of either Rhodium, Rose or Yellow Gold under the gold you have chosen to help the final Gold plating adhere better.
We do not do the plating in-house, but instead work with a well-established and respected plating company that only does plating and does it very well.
Yes, we can re-plate it for you! Just message us and we can work through that process with you. Another option is to check with your local jeweler. Just let them know it is a silver electroformed piece that has been plated.
Be sure you measured correctly before ordering! I DO NOT resize any of my Opal or Turquoise rings because the likelihood of destroying the Opal or Turquoise is too high. I can resize most other cast pieces so if you have any questions please message me and ask!
We do not resize electroformed pieces.
For more information on sizing accurately- go HERE.
Because electroforming isn't an exact science, we consider a 1/4 size variance as an acceptable range. If your ring is more than 1/4 size off the size you ordered, I will re-set/resize it for free as part of the warranty.
You cannot solder electroformed pieces for resizing or fusing together. Almost all of my electroformed pieces are plated and soldering would destroy the plating.
