What is the difference between sterling silver and fine silver?
Sterling silver is made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% alloys, usually copper. Fine silver is made up of 99.9% silver. This means that sterling silver is a little stronger than fine silver but it tarnishes a bit easier.

Is the jewelry for sale already made?
It depends. Sometimes the jewelry is already made, which will be obvious if a size is listed (especially for rings). Sometimes I will post pictures of jewelry that I have already made that I will make again when an order is placed. In these cases, shipping will take a few extra days to allow time for me to make the jewelry.

What is a one-of-a-kind piece?
A one-of-a-kind piece is a piece of jewelry that I have made that I do not intend to reproduce. These items most likely took a very long time to make, are difficult to reproduce, or involve stones or other components that are unique or difficult to find. If you see a one-of-a-kind piece listed that you absolutely have to have, I may be able to recreate something similar. However, if it is particularly time consuming or if I have to special-order any components, it may be at a higher cost and/or take several weeks to produce.
