Sizing & Purchasing Information

How to find out if our bracelets will fit you?

Depending on your wrist and how wide you would like the gap to be, our bracelets usually fit a wrist that has a circumference of between 1/4 of an inch or 1/2 a centimeter smaller and up to 1/2 an inch or 1.3 centimeters larger than the posted length of our bracelets.

Please note: These are estimates and we cannot guarantee a perfect fit. Of course you can always contact us and we will be glad to help and work with you.

What’s the best way to find out your ring size?

The best and most secure way to find out your ring size would be to go to a local jeweler and have him size your finger. It's always important to tell the jeweler how wide the ring will be, that you are sizing your finger for. The reason is that for most people the wider a ring is, the larger the necessary ring size will be. As an example if you measure your finger with a ¼ inch wide ring sizer, for a ring that will be 3/8 of an inch wide you might be off by ¼ to ½ a ring size. It’s always best to measure the ring size of your finger with a ring that has the same width as the ring that you would like to order. Refer to our International Ring Size Chart for further assistance

Can a ring be resized?

If a ring is just a bit too tight and doesn’t have any settings, inlays or onlays, it is sometimes possible to have the ring size increased a little, by stretching the ring through a jeweler. If the ring has a sizing gap, it’s also often possible to cut the ring and add or remove a little bit of silver or gold to increase or decrease the size of the ring and solder it back together again. You should always get advice from a professional jeweler, before you decide what to do.

How to Hang a Paddle

A paddle can be hung any way you like.

In the gallery, we tie a cotton string just under the handle around the neck of the paddle and hang it by the string vertically on a hook coated with rubber, so that it doesn't scratch the back of the handle. The handle is on top, and the tip of the paddle is pointed down. I've attached an image for reference.

If you prefer you can also use a see-through fishing line and hang it horizontally, or at any angle you like, from the wall or ceiling. Just loop the two fishing lines around the paddle to hold it in place.

Some museums have a holder fabricated that is lined with felt and will hold the paddle tight in the middle and screw it to the wall. That way you can hang it any way you like. You would need a metal fabricator to make that holder for you.
