How do I know the right size ring or bangle to buy?
Ring sizing: We provide a complimentary ring sizer with any ring purchase via post. Please reach out to obtain your free ring sizer after you’ve completed your order for your dream ring. As always if you have any questions please contact us.
Bangle sizing: Sizing your bangle is simple if you have a bangle in your collection that fits you well. Simply lay the bangle flat over a ruler or measuring tape and measure the internal diameter. E.g 6.5cm internal diameter. This size will correspond to the sizes in the bangle product listings. If you do not see the exact size you’d like, please reach out and we can update the listing to make exactly the size you need to order.
Bracelet sizing: Please be aware that bangle and bracelet sizing are different. A bangle has to fit over your hand whereas a bracelet can be closed around your wrist with the closure clasp. To best measure your perfect bracelet length, lay a bracelet you know fits you over a ruler or tape measure and make note of the total length. E.g 21cm long. This length will correspond to the sizes in the bracelet product listings.
Can you create a custom piece of jewellery for me?
If within my portfolio of work you see something that you like that you’d like customised for yourself or as a gift, please get in touch with me and we’ll discuss.
NB: the only customisations possible are lengthening or shortening of an earring wire or a handmade chain. Bangles and bracelets can be made to a specific millimetre in size, for example you see a 6.5cm internal diameter bangle in stock. However, if you want a 6.7cm internal diameter and it isn’t listed, please reach out and we can update the listing for you and make your perfect size in our made to order time frame.
Please note, I do not create custom pieces from scratch.
I bought a pair of earrings that said “one pair left” or “one-of-a-kind” but I see that they’re back in stock and you have more. How is that?
When we post a product title or description that says “one pair left” that is done with the knowledge that we have at the time. That is, that there are no longer the vintage components available to us to create another pair.
In some cases however, the vintage Gods smile upon us and we find additional versions of those components surfacing and often purchase them in order to create new pairs.
We always publish details with utmost honesty and do not seek to confuse or misrepresent the situation at hand.
Do you do jewellery repairs?
We do not offer a repair service for jewellery we haven’t made. However, if you have a piece of ours that is broken or needing repair or a part replaced, this can be assessed on a case by case basis.
We do not work on other jeweller’s work under any circumstances. We have a variety of reasons for this, but ultimately Betsy Blonde does not have the available bandwidth to help you with any repairs you have of jewellery items you own. We can suggest a reputable jeweller for you to seek out in a location close to you.
Why are these earrings available in silver but not in gold?
When we have low quantity or "one pair left" of vintage components we offer the jewellery in silver to make the item more accessible for the majority of shoppers. If however you wish to purchase an item in gold, always contact us as we may be able to upgrade you.
