Starstruck in the Forest Round Washer Necklace
What Size Is This Necklace?
My washer necklaces are approximately 25 mm in diametre, with a 12.5 mm hole in the centre. This makes my washer necklaces large enough to fill with wonderful designs and words, while also remaining very light to wear.
What Metals Are These Necklaces Made Of?
Silver: My silver washer necklaces are made of pure lead-free hand cast and formed pewter. Pewter is a wonderful silver metal alloy that has a similar weight and lustre to that of sterling silver. As well, pewter is generally considered to be a hypoallergenic metal, and is slow to tarnish. However, pewter is an alloy, and there is 0.5% copper within these necklaces (for those who do react to copper).
Gold and Rose Gold: My gold and rose gold washer necklaces are made of the same hand cast and formed pewter as my silver washer necklaces, but also have a gorgeous 18K yellow gold or a 18K rose gold plating, respectively. This means that both my yellow gold and rose gold washer necklaces are generally considered hypoallergenic.
I am happy to give you further information on the metal compositions of my necklaces for those who have allergies, just send me a message!
How Should I Take Care of My Necklace?
Silver: For my silver washer necklaces, in general no special care is required. To extend your silver washer necklace's life and reduce the likelihood of tarnishing and losing the darkened impressions, please: remove your necklace before showering or swimming, avoid exposing it to oils and perfumes, and store it in a cool dry place when not wearing. To clean, use a gentle hand soap and lightly handwash your necklace. Dry immediately.
Further, my silver necklaces are the exception to the rule: you may polish your pewter washer necklace if it ever loses its shine.
Gold and Rose Gold: For my gold and rose gold washer necklaces, in general no special care is required. Please do not polish your yellow gold or rose gold washer necklaces, this will remove the gold and quickly cause tarnishing.
To extend the life of your yellow gold or rose gold washer necklace's, and reduce the likelihood of tarnishing and losing the darkened impressions, please: remove your necklace before showering or swimming, avoid exposing it to oils and perfumes, and store it in a cool dry place when not wearing.
To clean, use a gentle hand soap and lightly handwash your necklace. Do not scrub, and never polish. Dry immediately.
What's Included, and How Will My Necklace Be Shipped?
You can either purchase the necklace as a charm only, with a jump ring included and ready to attach to a necklace you already own, or add-on a matching silver, gold, or rose gold hypoallergenic stainless steel 1.5 mm cable chain necklace in your choice of length.
Your necklace will be shipped through Canada Post regular old snail mail, unless shipping is upgraded at checkout. My current processing time to make your necklace is 5 to 9 business days. I will ship your necklace to you by the next business day.
Can I Personalize My Necklace with Designs or Words?
Of course you can! Just select the option 'Yes please!' in the 'Want to add custom text to your necklace?' section at checkout, and let me know what you would like to add to the back of your necklace, or how to modify the front. In general, I can fit about 20 characters of text on the back, but I will let you know if I need to modify any of your requests.
All of my necklaces are handmade, which means basically everything is customizable. So, let your imagination run wild!
Will My Necklace Really Look Like the Pictures?
The images I have included showcase the standard layout I will use when designing your necklace. However, the placement, spacing, and indentation will be slightly different than what is shown, simply because your necklace is handmade with love ☺ .
More Shipping Information and COVID-19 Update
Due to COVID-19, shipping times have greatly increased. I highly recommend selecting the tracked shipping option at check out to receive your tags in a reasonable amount of time.
Unfortunately, if you do not upgrade your shipping at checkout to tracked, there is nothing I can do for you once your tags have been dropped off at the post office.
So please do consider upgrading to tracked shipping so that you can follow your tags' journey and receive them in a timely manner.
For within Ontario, the approximate shipping time for untracked packages has been three to 28 business days. For Canada-wide, the approximate shipping time for untracked packages has been five to 35 business days. For the USA, the approximate shipping time for untracked packages has been seven to 37 business days. For everywhere else internationally, the approximate shipping time for untracked packages has been nine to 40 business days.
This time is greatly decreased with the upgraded tracked shipping option.
