At this stage, we can only arrange gift vouchers to be used in our North Fitzroy showroom,
not here on the website. Email us if you’d like to arrange a gift voucher.
If you spot a treasure you love and it's sold out, email us

to make you a non-identical version. A custom order generally takes about 2-3 weeks.
All items purchased from Edition X will come
beautifully presented in our signature packaging.
Caring for your Treasure
To keep your jewellery looking perennially gorgeous, take care not to expose it to perfume, hairspray
or harsh chemicals. Be sure to follow any specific care instructions specified in the product pages.
— STERLING SILVER —
You might notice that your silver oxidises (darkens) over time and with use. To maintain the shine
and finish of your jewellery, clean larger items like rings and bangles with a soft polish cloth,
and clean chains and fine wires with 'silver foam'. Gently pat your silver with a damp sponge
covered in silver foam then rinse clean, and your jewels should be gorgeous again!
We will wherever possible include specialised care instructions with your item.
'Silver foam' is available through most major department stores, but email us if you have trouble
finding it and we'll do our best to help you get your hands on some!
– MAINTAINING OXIDISED SILVER —
An oxidised (or blackened) silver finish is a surface treatment and its nature is to fade over time
and with wear. This should be considered part of the charm of the finish, as it will eventually reveal
the sterling silver surface below. To prolong the blackened appearance, always avoid using silver cleaning
agents on items with an oxidised finish. Instead clean with warm water and a drop of dishwashing liquid,
then give it a light buff. Alternatively, wipe with a cotton ball dripped in methylated spirits.
Now this can be tricky - but we promise to do our best to help you!
First things first: the best way to know your ring size is to visit a jeweller and be sized professionally,
or visit our shop in North Fitzroy where we can size you ourselves. Failing that, the next best thing
is to request a free plastic ring sizer from us, which we'll mail out to you anywhere in the world.
Just email us requesting one and include your full name and postal address.
– THE LOW DOWN ON RING SIZING —
Just as with clothing and shoe sizing, different countries use different units of measurement.
In Australia we use the UK letter system. If you know your ring size using the US number system, see below.
Typical sizes for the ring finger or middle finger:
– IMPORTANT NOTES ON RING SIZING —
Be sure to measure the actual finger you need sized, as each finger on each hand is different.
Your ring finger on your right hand will be a slightly different size to the ring finger on your left!
Your fingers will change size depending on the weather, so try to be sized on a day
when your hands are not too hot and not too cold. Tricky, we know! If the band you're considering
is wider and/or thicker than the ring used to size you, perhaps go up half a ring size.
The same applies if your fingers are prone to swelling in hot weather.
