We are sorry but we cannot accept returns of earrings for hygiene reasons.
All of our sizes small, medium and large are only approximate due to the shape and design, they don’t fit the finger in a traditional/round way!
Our small size is an approximate UK ring size J/K, Medium is a UK ring size L/M and Large is a UK ring size N/O. The fine wire and unusual shapes means that you may be able to fit our sizes on several fingers and stack them in interesting ways with other rings.
Please get in touch if you have a specific size you require and we will make one to fit you as best we can.
All of our jewellery is made from 925 Sterling Silver or 22ct Gold Vermeil (=2 microns of 22ct gold on sterling silver). All of our metal; sterling silver and 22ct gold vermeil is produced for us in England.
All MM pearls are natural Freshwater Pearls, so none are ‘perfect’ and they will all have some imperfections and no two are ever exactly the same. They are all sourced from China & Hong Kong and the coloured Pearls are dyed but the dye will not come off.
MM Gemstones are sourced from all over the world and are hand cut so may differ in size. They are all natural gemstones so they also may vary in colour but this is why we love them!
All Melissa McArthur Jewellery is lovingly hand made by skilled craftsmen in our London studio.
Many factors can influence the condition of jewellery. Therefore you should make sure that your jewellery is properly cleaned, repaired and stored. Take care to avoid extreme humidity or heat as this may cause tarnishing. This will keep them looking their best.
We recommend cleaning your jewellery regularly and storing in a dark, cool and dry place.
Use a damp cloth to clean up pearls and semi-precious stones and if the metal is looking dull we recommend purchasing silver dip to brighten it up again.
Replacing a lost earring
Lost an earring? We offer a replacement service. Firstly email a photo of the one earring you still have to email@example.com and we will confirm if we are able to reproduce it.
Secondly you will need to send the earring to us so we can match its pearl/ gemstone exactly. We will then give you a quote.
If you are happy to go ahead you will make payment and we will then ship the whole pair back to you, ready to be worn again!
