By design our silver cuff bracelets are adjustable by the end user without any special tools – to suit varying wrist sizes.

The size we quote on the description page is an approximate diameter, obviously before any adjustment. To see how this compares to your actual wrist, measure across at the widest point using a ruler. Don’t try to use a tape measure, or bend the ruler, since this will measure around your wrist, you want to measure the width in a straight line.

Obviously wrist dimensions vary considerably, for women typically from about 5 to 7 cm, with the average wrist measuring approximately 6cm. If your wrist measures 5cm or less you have small wrists, 6cm or above then you have larger wrists.

Instructions for adjusting

Please be aware, once you have done this, we can no longer offer our unconditional exchange guarantee. We can adjust for you, see below.

To make our silver cuff bracelets smaller, simply grip using two hands securing each “side” of the cuff between your thumb and forefinger, now gently apply pressure on the ends of the cuff to bend them inwards. (boyfriends and husbands seem exceptionally good at this –they have to be good at something)

Paua Shell is the shell of the Abalone mollusc (producer of the Abalone pearl) and has a stunning blue/green colour.

It is also called Sea Opal, and is usually cut into flat beads for setting into rings or pendants. It is difficult, almost impossible to cut Paua into beads.

Abalone or Paua Shell is a type of Mother-of-Pearl found only off the coasts of South Africa or America.

Moonstones are part of the feldspar gemstone family. The most popular, and arguably the most beautiful are the rainbow and blue moonstones.

Historically a moonstone is a gift between lovers.  Mythology has it that if you gift a moonstone on the night of a full moon, your relationship will always have love and passion.

Moonstones are also a supposed to bring good luck.

Onyx is a type of quartz and a gemstone which occurs naturally. It is mined across the world. The most popular form of Onyx used in jewellery is Black Onyx, although Onyx also occurs naturally in many other colours.

Black Onyx is the traditional gemstone for the 10th wedding anniversary, and is also thought by many to have healing powers.

It is popular as beads, often in conjunction with another gemstone or pearl to create a complimenting design, but Onyx can also be set in silver.

Malachite is effectively a by-product of copper mining. It is the copper influence that gives Malachite it’s green colour.

Malachite is found all over the world, but predominantly in America, Australia and Siberia. Some Malachite is found in the UK.

Malachite was extremely popular with the Victorians, and remains a popular choice of vibrant gemstone.

Amber

Amber originates from tree resin. It is often mistakenly thought that it originates from tree sap. Because of the natural beauty and inclusions such as animal fossils, it has been popular with jewellers for many hundreds of years, infact historians believe it was used in the Neolithic period – some 13,000 years ago!

Amber is not just the brown-orange associated with the colour, it ranges from brown to pale yellow and can be either transparent or opaque.

Approximately 85% of the worlds Amber is found in the Baltic region – often washed up on the shores of Northern Europe, including the UK – but also mined, particularly in Russia, Poland, Germany and surrounding countries.

Rarer forms of Amber include the highly sought after fluorescent amber from Mexico, Dominican Amber (from  Santiago) and Delatynite from the Ukraine.

Despite its rarity, Amber is relatively inexpensive yet highly attractive.

Our Amber is sourced from all over the world and set in Sterling Silver Jewellery by skilled Silversmiths and Jewellers.

Silver is a naturally occurring metal, chemical symbol Ag.

The metal in its natural state is soft, but this can be altered by alloying the natural silver with other metals.

Jewellery is traditionally made from an alloy of 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper. This makes it harder, and gives it a lower melting point. This alloy is often referred to as Sterling Silver or 925 silver. There are alternative alloys of silver for different applications, but for Silver Jewellery 925 Sterling Silver is recognised as the most desirable. It is undesirable to add Nickle to the alloy, since a growing number of people find they have an undesirable skin reaction.

The silver is worked by a silversmith at room temperature using a carefully selected implement and some very carefully directed hammer blows.

Our Silver Jewellery

All our silver is of 925 grade, and is therefore Nickle free, and suitable for people with sensitive skin.

 Some of our pieces are described as Sterling Silver, others as 925 grade silver. Both are the same high quality 92.5% silver content.

Cultured Pearls

Cultured pearls were made famous by Mikimoto. Nearly all pearls sold on the open market are cultured.

Cultured pearls evolve in a similar manner to natural pearls, with the distinction that cultured pearls have an irritant intentionally placed by a pearl farmer to start the formation of a pearl. The process may still take several years, and requires the skill of a “surgeon” to introduce the iterant to the mollusc without damaging it, and he or she only has 15 minutes to complete this task or the mollusc dies.

Japan, China, and various other places in the South Pacific have traditionally been major suppliers of cultured pearls, but as Japanese waters have become incredibly polluted, most are now produced in China.

Our Pearls

All our pearls are cultured, and are threaded on silk with a hand tied knot between each pearl to protect them. The necklaces are all finished with a sterling silver clasp.
