Do you think that buying a wedding ring is complicated? You are not alone.
How can you trust that your opals are real?
Like most things in life you need to be able to trust the business that is selling you your opal jewellery. Are they only interested in getting a sale from you? If they are they may be
happy for you to think you are buying real opals. Jewellery is often displayed in a shop or on the internet as opal. In many ways they are right, it is opal but opal what? You may be
buying synthetic opal, yes it is opal and displayed as opal but it is very different from the real thing. synthetic opal has been manufactured to look like opal and often looks better than
real opal. All those lovely flashes of colour make a real piece of opal expensive and synthetic opal can mimic those lovely colours flashes at a fraction of the price.
Recently, I noticed some gold opal bracelets for sale on a search engine alongside opal bracelets that we sell at Lyre Studio. They were similar in price and were made with cultured
opals. Cultured opals? What are cultured opals, I thought? It sounds really good and conjours up images of quality real opals. A quick search on google however, showed me that
cultured opals are sythentic opals or in other words man made opals. Real man made opals doesn't sound as good as cultured opals , does it?

The correct ring will depend on many factors and you cannot rely on one ring measurement taken at a jewellers on a sunny afternoon whilst you are out shopping.
Your ring size can change depending on the style of ring, the width of the ring and whether you are hot, this is because our fingers swell in the heat.
What kind of metal do you want for your ring? Your choice may be because of price or you may have a favourite metal. If you are wearing an engagement ring, then you will want to choose the same metal for your wedding ring. Silver makes a popular choice now that gold is so expensive.

You can buy silver chain from Lyre Studio in Whitstable, Kent. Visit our shop or purchase online.
Many jewellers, especially the big mulitple jewellery stores only sell pendants on a standard length chain, such as 16 inches or 18 inches. But these lengths are often too short for a lot of customers and so the customer is unable to wear the pendant. This is where we can help you, we stock chains from 14 inches up to 36 inches.
Yes, we do silver chain on its own. At Lyre Studio, we specialise in selling silver chain in a wide variety of lengths and styles.
Yes, we have chains up to 36 inches in stock
Everything can break if enough pressure is applied. A fine chain will not break unless you give it a good tug. A fine chain is often more preferable because it doesn't compete with the pendant and can give a light weight pendant the right delicate look.
Just like our clothes and bodies, silver chain can get dirty. Silver chain is easily cleaned with a silver cloth or by using a silver cleaner.
Jewellery is intended to be used as a decorative item and without care, unintentional damage can occur to your jewellery.
Exposure to food can damage your jewellery, both fish and onions can tarnish gold and silver.
Exposure to chemicals can affect gems and even precious metals and can stain silver and discolour some gems, chemicals are contained in many everyday items that we all use. Especially pearls and shells, turquoise, lapis lazuli.
Direct exposure to sun light and heat can change the properties of gems. Gemstones are made up of chemical elements themselves, these components react to heat and sunlight. Some of the gems that become paler when exposed to sunlight include amethyst, aquamarine, aventurine, and smokey quartz. Some gems like citrine or ametrine may even change colour.
Storing your jewellery
Keeping your jewellery clean
Why has my finger gone green?
You have just bought a silver ring and worn it a few times and it has turned your finger green!
That means it cannot be real silver? No! Your ring is real silver but your body has had a natural chemical reaction with the silver.
But you have worn other silver rings before and this has not happened before, so that means it cannot be silver! No! Just because it hasn’t happened with other items of silver jewellery doesn’t mean that your ring is not silver.
Reasons why your finger has turned green
The acidity of your skin can be affected by the weather especially when it is hot and humid.
The acidity of your skin can be affected by the food and drink you eat.
The green is actually caused by oxidation, and all silver will oxidize. It is a natural chemical reaction and not an indication that the silver is not real or of good quality.
Give your ring a good wash in warm water with washing up liquid and then dry with a clean cloth. Then polish your ring with a good quality silver cloth such as Goddards. If you clean your silver ring several times then after a week the reaction should stop occurring.
