Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  1. I'm new to this, what exactly am I purchasing?

When you make a purchase, you're acquiring a spoon that I will transform and design into a custom-sized and styled ring. So, essentially, you'll be receiving a ring made from a spoon.

  1. How do I determine my ring size?

I follow the American sizing system, which is unisex and quite straightforward. Here's a helpful website (link: 3 Easy Ways to Measure Ring Size at Home - EnkiVeryWell) that can assist you in finding your ring size.

  1. Will these rings turn my finger green? What metals do you use?

While I can't guarantee that silver-plated spoons won't cause any issues, it's been an uncommon occurrence, with only two instances out of the many rings I've crafted. To address this concern, simple solutions such as applying a coat of clear nail polish on the inside or repolishing the ring can be employed. I primarily utilize silver-plated and stainless steel spoons, occasionally incorporating sterling silver spoons. Each product description will specify the metal used.

  1. How much do your rings usually cost?

I strive to keep my rings as affordable as possible, with this being more of a passion project. With prices ranging from $7 to $25, depending on the spoon. 

  1. How long does it take to create a ring?

Give me at least 1-2 weeks. I do not operate like amazon sadly. As a one-person operation (while also juggling a full-time job and college), it typically takes me a few days to complete the entire process. This includes preparing shipping labels, fufillment, crafting the rings, packaging, and delivering them to the post office. Your patience is appreciated, and I can assure you that you'll love the final product when it arrives!

  1. How long does shipping usually take?

Shipping times can vary with USPS, but it typically takes anywhere from 3 to 10 days.

  1. What is your return policy?

Due to the customized nature of these rings, I do not offer returns. However, if you require resizing, please contact me within 29 days of purchase (my contact information is available on the website's contact page), and there will be a shipping fee to cover the return. My aim is for you to be completely satisfied with your purchase, so feel free to reach out to me via email or DM on Instagram if you have any concerns or questions. 

  1. How and by whom are these rings made?

All the rings are crafted by me! I utilize various tools, ranging from different files, hammers to disk sanders. Each ring is handmade and tailored to your unique style. 

  1. Where do you source your spoons from?

I often receive inquiries about this. The truth is, I find spoons just about everywhere! I can usually tell you the specific origin of the spoon you've purchased. I discover them in thrift stores, from grandparents selling their wedding sets or spoon collections, online platforms, roadside finds, and more. One of my fondest memories of spoon hunting was during a family road trip to Mexico, where I made them stop at multiple antique stores in three different states just so I could find some fascinating pieces. Every spoon carries a story!

  1. How should I care for my ring?

To ensure your ring remains in the best possible condition, avoid exposing it to harsh soaps and lotions. I recommend taking it off when swimming or engaging in intense physical activities to maintain its shine and prevent loss. Additionally, if you frequent hot springs, note that silver-plated rings can tarnish due to the sulfur in the water. Apart from these considerations, spoon rings are waterproof!
