My sterling silver ring is tarnishing. What should I do?
All Genuine .925 Sterling silver items can tarnish. Tarnish is not an indication of poor quality. As a matter of fact, cheap imitation or costume jewelry is usually nickel plated or made from inexpensive base metals that will not tarnish. Your genuine sterling silver item will tarnish when exposed to the environment and to everyday products such as perfumes, colognes, dishwashing soap, hair care products, lotions, creams and more.
Fortunately, there any many anti-tarnish silver polishes available at your local mall and/or jeweller.

When you personalize a ring on Jewlr, you will see a preview of your item with your selected options. This preview is intended to give you an idea as to what your item will look like.

I need an engraving that is longer than the allowed number of characters. Can you still do it?

Are special symbols or characters permitted in an engraving?
No, unfortunately we cannot engrave special symbols and/or characters at this time.
What are birthstones?
A birthstone is a gift of a precious material and one that is cherished for a lifetime. Birthstones are gemstones that are traditionally associated with the twelve birth months of the year and are available as Genuine or Simulated. Genuine gemstones are mined directly from the earth and are much more scarce. They have taken millions of years to form deep within the earth and carry an exceptional earthly energy. No two Genuine gemstones are identical making any jewelry piece truly unique!.
Genuine gemstones are rare and more valuable than simulated gemstones. Jewlr offers a wide variety of Genuine gemstones for a very reasonable price. Certain precious gemstones such as Diamonds, Sapphires, Emeralds and Rubies are more expensive due to their greater scarcity and value.
What is the difference between simulated gemstones and genuine gemstones?
Simulated (sometimes called synthetic) gemstones are created in laboratories and emulate the characteristics and look of genuine gemstones. For example, cubic zirconia is a diamond simulant composed of zirconium oxide. Simulated stones tend to have vivid colors to them, as impurities are not present in a lab and do not modify the clarity or color of the stone. Therefore, the colors in simulated gemstones are consistent and can be easily matched with one another for a uniform look.
Genuine gemstones are rarer and more valuable than simulated gemstones. Genuine Gemstones increase the value of any jewelry item that contains them. Jewlr offers a wide variety of Genuine gemstones for a very reasonable price. Precious gemstones such as Diamonds, Sapphires, Emeralds and Rubies are offered as an additional charge.
Why should you include Genuine Gemstones in your Jewelry ?
There are numerous benefits of including genuine stones to any Jewelry item. Genuine stones add an exceptional intrinsic worth and natural beauty to all jewelry. Genuine gemstones are rarer and much more valuable than simulated gemstones and this value stays with the jewelry item forever.No two Genuine gemstones are identical and all have a unique story to them. The true beauty of Gemstones can be fully enjoyed in their natural and Genuine form. Any gift recipient would love to know that their personalized item contains Genuine stones and making it both personalized and truly one-of-a-kind.
All of Jewlr’s Genuine gemstones are A-AA quality, in all shapes and sizes, purchased from industry leading suppliers and we continually strive to obtain the highest quality stones. Jewlr offers a wide variety of Genuine gemstones for very reasonable price.

Why aren't my birthstones offered for a particular item?

SWAROVSKI Zirconia stones are flawless simulated diamonds. The fine and distinctive brilliance of the SWAROVSKI Zirconia stones set them apart from other zirconia.

You can choose from 11 different colors to create a totally unique design.

What is sterling silver?
Only a silver item that contains 92.5% silver can be referred to as, or stamped sterling silver. The remaining 7.5% is an alloy, usually copper, to increase the hardness. The stamp can appear as 925, .925 or 92.5, as opposed to a karat stamp. Although this is the standard for the United States other countries may have lower grades.
What is the difference between 10K & 14K gold?
The term "karat" designates the amount of gold found in a piece of jewelry: 24 karats is pure gold but since pure gold is too soft to produce jewelry it is generally mixed with other metals to produce a harder, more workable alloy. While 14 karats (14k) indicates that 14 parts out of 24 are gold, the other parts being made up of the other metals, 10 karats (10k) indicates that 10 parts out of 24 are gold.
