CARE & CLEANING
How should I care for my Ronaldo Jewelry?
We use sterling silver in our jewelry which requires a certain amount of care. Sterling silver naturally darkens over time as the surface of the metal oxidizes from contact with air and moisture. There are some measures you can take to prevent unwanted tarnish, and to keep your silver sparkling while gaining a natural patina from being a well worn treasure.
When not in use, store sterling silver out of direct sunlight in an individual plastic bag (possibly with an anti-tarnish strip inside) in a spot with low humidity.
Remember, sterling silver naturally obtains a beautiful patina especially in the creases of a design. With care, your piece can age gracefully while keeping a beautifully shiny surface.
How often should I clean my jewelry?
Pieces can be cleaned daily by simply wiping down with a microfiber cloth. A polishing cloth or chemical silver polish is not usually necessary for everyday care. If pieces come in contact with lotions, oils or chemicals, wash with warm water and a mild soap, rinse thoroughly and dry thoroughly.
What should I do if my jewelry becomes tarnished?
If pieces become tarnished, you can use a jewelers polishing cloth to bring the surface back to a beautiful shine. In extreme cases, a silver jewelry polishing wipe (or other silver polish specifically formulated for jewelry) might be used to remove dark tarnish. Be careful to avoid pearls and porous stones when polishing and use polishing products as directed by their manufacturers. If tarnish is too extreme, professional cleaning may be necessary.
FINDING YOUR SIZE
How can I find out my bracelet size?
TO FIND YOUR BRACELET SIZE:
* Use a paper measuring tape to measure your wrist (if you do not have one, you can use a piece of string to wrap around your wrist and then measure the length with a ruler)
* We recommend adding 1/2 inch to your measurement for comfort
If wrist measurement is 7 inches, bracelet size should be 7 1/2 inches.
How can I measure pendant or necklace lengths?
Many of our pendants and necklaces are available in four different chain lengths depending on your preference.
How can I find my ring size?
Option 1 - Choose a ring that correctly fits the finger you are purchasing the ring for.
Option 2 - Measure your finger with a strip of paper or string. Wrap the paper or string around the base of the intended finger, and then mark where it overlaps. The length of the paper or string you measured in millimeters is the circumference of your finger. After finding this measurement, use our conversion chart to find the corresponding ring size. If the size of your finger below the knuckle drastically differs in size from the knuckle itself, measure your knuckle as well and choose a size that falls more in the middle of these two measurements.

* Made with 14/20 gold-filled wire (a percentage of the gold mixture is 14K gold and the other percentages of the makeup are silver and a small amount of copper)
* There is NO plating or gold film added to the exterior
* Gold all the way through the thickness of the wire
* 14K Gold Artist Wire will last a lifetime!
* The gold beads used in Ronaldo Jewelry are 14K gold filled seamless round beads

What is the quality of the Sterling Silver Wire used in your jewelry?
* Sterling Silver is designated at .925 meaning it’s mixture is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals (usually copper)

* The silver beads used in Ronaldo Jewelry are .925 sterling silver seamless round beads.
* All of our metals are nickel-free!
