Sizing & Care

Ring Size 

If you don’t know your ring size, the best option is to go to your local jewellery shop and get them to measure your ring size. Alternatively you can measure the inside across diameter (not including metal) in mm of a few rings that fit well and add the measurement in the notes at checkout. I will be able to convert that to an approximate ring size. 

If you live near my studio at Commonfolk, 16 Progress St, Mornington, Victoria, contact me at info@katemacindoe.com to arrange a time to come in and I can measure your size. 

If the ring is is a gift and you would like to make a guess on the size a rough guide for females:

Small: J-M 

Medium: N-P

Large: Q-T 

Please note, not all online ring measuring guides are accurate so best to do one of the above options. 

Kate uses the standard Australian/British ring sizing guide which is indicated by a letter. If you wish to order a size and a half please add this in the note section at checkout.

Care Information

When treated with the same care with which it was made your handmade piece should last you a lifetime.

Due to the texture on the surface of most of the pieces, overtime it will tarnish due to heat, water, sweat, hand cream etc. Lots of people don’t mind the appearance of jewellery that is a little tarnished, however if you’re someone who likes your jewellery to be clean and sparkly here are some tips!.

  • Buff the piece with a jewellery polishing cloth.
  • Use ‘Brasso’ or ‘Silvo’ on a soft cloth. This can be bought from supermarkets for about $8 and can be used to clean any jewellery you have.
  • Boil your jewellery in a saucepan with aluminium foil for a few minutes (Works amazingly!!)

Kate also offers free polish and repairs on any of her pieces of jewellery. Email her at info@katemacindoe.com to arrange an appointment at her studio or postage.
