How can I find my ring size?
There are a few ways to size your finger. The most accurate way is to go into your local jewelry store and have a jeweler size you. A DIY method would be to use a string or piece of floss and wrap it around the base of your finger. Measure the length of the string in millimeters (mm). Once you have your measurement use this size chart to find your size.

Why is my silver jewelry changing colors?
This is called tarnish. In a perfect world your jewelry would stay dry and be stored in a tarnish resistant box when not being worn. For us jewelry wearers who never take our piece off this is a bit unrealistic. Tarnish will not harm your jewelry. Simply clean your jewelry to remove the discoloration.
How should I clean my jewelry?
For frequent cleaning your best option would be to use a jewelry cloth. For a deeper clean you can use a dollop of dish soap on a soft brittle toothbrush. Scrub your jewelry and rinse it under lukewarm water.
