How can I be sure my ring is sized correctly?

We recommend having your fingers sized at a jewelers before placing an order.  Try on the same width  comfort fit rings that you are interested in and ask the jeweler to write the size and width on the back of his or her business card.  You do not need to tell them that you are planning on purchasing your rings elsewhere - we have had customers purposely sized incorrectly by jewelers who know the customer will not be buying from them.  You might even go to two different jewelers to check the size for accuracy. If the jeweler is unwilling to write the finger size and width on his/her card, be cautious!!   deSignet does not want to sell you a ring which does not fit properly - please have your sized checked prior to ordering - thank you.

All our wedding bands are hand made, comfort fit (domed on the inside), have a continuous pattern (no sizing bar) and average 6 to 8mm in width.

NOTE:  We do not have a sizing bar in our bands which means that correct sizing is very important.  Our rings can typically be adjusted up or down by only a 1/2 a size without distorting the pattern.  A sizing bar is a portion of the ring with no pattern.  This will allow for easy sizing, but remember, rings roll on the finger and a sizing bar will often be seen. This is why we do not add a sizing bar to our hand made rings.

Will deSignet help me find the perfect diamond or gemstone for my custom ring?

We will gladly source a diamond or colored gemstone for your engagement ring or special jewelry purchase.  

Note: We recommend the use of diamond, sapphire or ruby in engagement rings as these are the most durable.  Other stones such as amethyst, emerald or aquamarine are by nature soft, lending themselves to breakage and no guarantee is given.  There is no addition charge to set a stone purchased from deSignet.  Visit our diamonds and gemstones pages to evaluate our current inventory or contact our diamond and gemstone department for further help in identifying that perfect stone (888-727-8266).

Please note, all rings are sold as either finished product where deSignet supplies and sets all stones or as semi-mounts where deSignet supplies all side stones and the customer is responsible for supplying and having the center stone set.

Top





Can I have my stone set in my design?

deSignet International set customer stones under certain circumstances.  We can review with customers as to whether their stone is something we would set
If you choose to have a local jeweler set your stone, we will need to know the exact dimensions of the stone so that we may supply the appropriate head.

Please note, all rings are sold as either finished product where deSignet supplies and sets all stones or as semi-mounts where deSignet supplies all side stones and the customer is responsible for supplying and having the center stone set.

Metal composition or what is alloyed with silver, gold and platinum?

Sterling Silver is composed of 92.5% pure silver with 7.5% copper.

"NEW" Continuum Sterling Silver(nickel free) has at least 93% sterling with 2-3% Palladium which gives the sterling a harder and brighter white finish like white gold.(tarnish resistant)

14kt yellow gold is composed of 58.3% pure gold with copper, silver and zinc in the alloy.

14kt white gold is composed of 58.3% pure gold with nickel, copper and zinc in the alloy.

14kt rose gold is composed of 58.3% pure gold with copper and silver alloy.

14kt green gold is composed of 58.3% pure gold with silver and a small amount of copper.

18kt yellow gold is composed of 75% pure gold with copper, silver and zinc in the alloy.

18kt white gold is composed of 75% pure gold with nickel, copper and zinc in the alloy.

Platinum is composed of 95% pure platinum with 5% Ruthenium or Iridium.

Platinum is a very dense metal which will last for a lifetime but it does scratch easily and does not hold a bright white finish.

24kt gold is 100% pure gold. We do not work in pure silver or pure gold.

CAUTION: Some people experience a reaction to the alloy material, particularly copper and nickel. Sterling silver and 14kt yellow may turn certain individual's fingers black or green because of allergy or body acidity.

NOTE: We do not recommend the use of 18kt white gold because it has a higher fine gold content and therefore appears more yellowish. If you want a white or silver look we recommend 14kt white gold or platinum.

There is a restocking fee of 20% on all returned stock merchandise. Custom items are not returnable.

  Items must be returned within 30 days of the original ship date in good condition.  Good condition means that the item must not show signs of wear and must not have been altered in any way (i.e. resized or re-polished).  Any item that has been engraved or resized is not returnable.   A return authorization number is required.  No returns will be accepted without a valid Return Authorization number or after 30 days from the original ship date.  Please call 888-727-8266 for your RA number.  Be sure to write the RA number on the outside of your package.  Refunds are in kind (i.e. company check if paid by bank check/money order or a credit to your credit card).

What if my ring is the wrong size?

Wedding bands can be returned for resizing for a $20 fee plus the cost of shipping.

However correct initial sizing of our bands is critical.  Since the patterns repeat around the band removing or inserting material in the band will inevitably break the pattern and impact the beauty of the ring.  For this reason we encourage our customers to get properly sized by a jeweler before we make the ring.  Our rings are comfort fit and average between 6 - 8 mm in width.
