WARRANTY & REPAIRS
We are committed to creating high quality pieces of heirloom quality and guarantee our workmanship. As with any delicate artistic creation, care must be taken to ensure its longevity.
The warranty does not cover neglect, abuse, or normal wear and tear. Repairs may be subject to a base fee of $30, unless quoted otherwise.
From the initial design to the final polish, each piece of Oak Handmade jewelry
undergoes a careful process with the utmost attention to detail. It is my wish to create heirloom-quality jewelry that will withstand the test of time and bring you joy for years to come.
Do you do custom projects?
I love designing new jewelry! Contact email@example.com to discuss custom pieces.
Can I replace a lost earring?
Absolutely, there’s nothing worse!
If your earring style is in stock, you may purchase half a pair. Please bear in mind that all of our pieces are made by hand and may result in slight variances. We might ask you to send in its mate (at your cost) so that we can match it as best we can.
Some styles are seasonal and may not be available at the time of request.
What color & clarity are your gemstones and where do they come from?
We use authentic gemstones, which means no two stones are exactly alike. They can vary slightly in color and size, as well as contain imperfections due to their natural state. These imperfections do not detract from the stone’s integrity, but rather lends to its unique beauty. Our gemstones are ethically sourced from around the world.
What is 14k Gold or Rose Gold Fill?
“Gold-filled” is a USA industry standard that legally requires 1/20th, or 5%, of the metal to be pure gold by weight. The regulated process involves pressure bonding multiple layers of solid 14k Gold with extreme heat over a core of high-quality jeweler’s brass, resulting in a durable, quality real gold product. Both 14k yellow and rose gold alloys contain the same amount of solid 14k Gold.
Why does my piece look different than the one pictured?
Every piece of Oak handmade is cut, hammered and set by hand with natural gemstones, ensuring their unique quality.
How do I know what size bracelet to order?
Determine your bracelet size with the following steps:
1. Measure your wrist below the wrist bone (where you would normally wear your bracelet) using a flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper.
2. If using a plain strip of paper, mark your strip with a pen where the end of the bracelet needs to be. Then measure the paper strip with a ruler. This is the wrist size.
3. To find the bracelet size, increase the wrist measurement by the increment below, based on you want the bracelet to fit:
For a snug fit, add 1/4" to 1/2"
For a comfort fit, add 3/4" to 1"
For a loose fit, add 1-1/4"
