FAQs

 

Q: How do I take care of my new jewelry?

A: To keep your silver looking shiny and new, we recommend clean it with a soft, non-abrasive cloth in warm water and dish soap, preferably Dawn. Polishing with a jeweler’s cloth designed for silver is also ideal.

You can avoid tarnish by wearing your silver jewelry often. The oils in your skin will “clean” the silver and keep it looking shiny. Contact with household chemicals, perspiration, rubber, substances which contain sulfur, chlorinated water, and direct sunlight will cause corrosion and tarnish, so it’s a good idea to remove silver jewelry when doing household chores or swimming and sunbathing. Lotions, cosmetics, hair products, and perfumes also accelerate tarnishing, so put on your silver jewelry last.

 

Q: Is there nickel in Argentium silver?

A: No, Argentium Silver is hypoallergenic.

 

Q: I don’t know my ring size, what should I do?

A: Measuring your ring size is easy.  Grab a ring that fits the finger on which the JB Gampe creation will be worn on.  Measure the inside diameter of your ring with a ruler in mm. Find the matching measurement in the table below. If your ring size falls between 2 sizes, we suggest that you select the larger size.

 

Q: How is the jewelry you make sustainable?

A: The Argentium Sterling Silver that we use is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. We also keep all of our bits and pieces and use them in our creations.

 

Q: I’d like to see your jewelry in person, can I come to your studio?

A: At this time, we do not have a storefront at our studio. We are working with local boutiques that share our same vision to carry our products.  Check back to see who we’ve partnered with.
