Jewellery Care & Maintenance

Even the highest quality, expertly crafted jewellery is still delicate. All precious metals are relatively soft and are subject to wear and tear.

Here are some guidelines to help you achieve the maximum lifespan of your jewellery:

"Ryno redesigned my ring set and we are madly in love! He took a very bland-looking set and created something unique and elegant. Ryno is highly creative and engaging. The whole process from start to finish was a breeze. I wish I had more pieces to redo, just to use his services."

"My husband and I had custom wedding bands made by Ryno, and we couldn't have been happier. Our design was intricate and complex, and rather than trying to encourage us to simplify Ryno was excited for the challenge! He gave excellent and trustworthy advice on metal and stone choices, plus he took our detailed feedback and preferences into careful consideration. He even very kindly sat with me to talk through some last minute panics I had about the design, and was willing to make changes if I wanted them. Apart from the excellent quality of his work, Ryno was warm, friendly, very quick to respond to messages, and extremely reasonably priced. Can't recommend highly enough!"
