Jewelry Care

How do I care for my jewelry?

We recommend keeping your sterling silver jewelry in a box or soft pouch when not being worn to prevent the metal from tarnishing, but should the sterling begin to discolor, a quick dip into a silver cleaning solution such as Hagerty’s or Tarnex will dissolve the tarnish. Rinse the piece in warm water right away and dry with a soft cloth. Please do not use a polishing cloth or paste as that will turn our matte finishes shiny, and never use any kind of cleaner on pieces with an oxidized finish as that will remove the patina. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any jewelry care questions; we are always happy to refinish our pieces in the studio for you if you prefer. We recommend removing your jewelry when participating in activities such as swimming, rock climbing, and gardening.

Repairs & Exchanges

Can I return or exchange an item?

We want you to be thoroughly delighted with your new piece of Heather Guidero Jewelry! Since each piece of jewelry is hand fabricated upon order in house, items may be returned within 14 days of purchase or receipt only, providing the jewelry is in its original condition and is accompanied by a receipt. Custom orders are non-returnable.
To return an item, please send us a message briefly explaining the reason for return in the email. You will then be issued a return number. We must receive the jewelry within the 14 day window to process your credit, so please plan accordingly. The customer is also responsible for safe return shipping; Heather Guidero Jewelry is not responsible for items lost or damaged in transit.

What if my jewelry needs repair?

We stand by our work and are happy to provide care for our jewelry for the life of the piece. Depending on the nature of the repair or alteration, a charge may apply. Please contact us with your inquiry and we will tell you how to proceed.

What if I need a ring sized?

We are happy to size our rings for our customers! The first sizing is free of charge; any additional sizing work is $30 with the customer responsible for shipping costs. Please contact us if you need a ring sized and instructions on how to proceed. If you are unsure of your ring size, contact us to have a complimentary ring sizer sent to you.

Custom Work

What if I want to alter an existing piece?

If you are interested in customizing an existing piece in a different metal, a different size, a different chain length, shape or type of stone, or different size, please contact us for a quote. Often there is little or no extra cost for these types of customization.

What if I'd like to design a piece from scratch?
