Care For Your Jewellery
All KATA Jewellery must be looked after with care. Jewellery is a precious item and does not like to mistreated or mishandled.
Although silver, gold and platinum are metals, they will over time scratch and scuff with general wear. Coloured gemstones and diamonds are capable of being chipped, scuffed, worn and damaged with wear and tear over time
There are a few points we would ask you to be aware of to increase the longevity of your jewellery and make sure it looks beautiful for years to come.
- When not wearing your jewellery it is best to store them in either a jewellery box, jewellery roll or jewellery pouch. We would recommend you do not let your jewellery pieces touch each other, to minimise undue wear and tear.
- From time to time your jewellery, especially the pieces containing gemstones and diamond, will need cleaning. You may bring this to us to have professionally done, but at home, you may use a very soft brush (such as a children’s toothbrush) and some warm, slightly soapy, water. DO NOT use any chemical cleaners and this may damage the finish of your jewellery and damage the surface of gemstones, especially pearls, opals, emeralds and other soft or porous stones. Dry using a soft, lint free cloth
- Be aware that if you wear two pieces of jewellery next to each other, for example either two rings together on the same finger, or two rings on adjacent fingers that they may wear upon each other, bump against each other and cause damage.
- Please be careful not to wear your rings when lifting heavy loads, or doing strenuous activities such as gym or gardening.
All ring sizes shown on the website are UK ring sizes.
If you do not know your UK ring size but you know your European, American or Other ring size then you may use an online conversion to see your approximate UK size. Please note that this is at your own risk and KATA Jewellery cannot accept responsibility for any sizing error. Any resizing subsequently required would be at your own cost.
If you do not know your UK ring size you can purchase through our website an easy to use ring sizer. The product comes with full instructions and is easy to use.
We will offer any sizing advice in good faith however the final responsibility of finger size choice lies with the customer as it is always a matter of personal preference.
Once you have decided on and ordered a ring at this desired size the decision is binding and you will be charged for any subsequent changes of ring size.
Diamond & Gemstones
KATA Jewellery only purchases diamonds from respectable dealers that adhere strictly to the Kimberley Process and every attempt is always made to ensure that diamonds are not sourced from countries that use the money to fund conflicts.
Diamond carat weights stated are within 0.05 carats of the exact weight to comply with FTC regulations.
Our gemstones and pearls are only purchased from respectable dealers with strict ethics policies.
Diamonds, gemstones and pearls are natural and untreated unless specified in the product text.
