MADE TO ORDER
Every order is handcrafted especially for you to fit the specifications you select in the shopping cart. This means that as soon we have received your order, we start working on it. Of course we will let you know how long it wil take us to deliver it to your door. It will take up to approximately 1-3 weeks. This way all items are exclusive and we can guarantee every piece of quality and craftmanship. Each piece is handmade individually, and as a result all items are unique, no two will be identical to each other. The piece you recieve may vary slightly in structure, width and appearance.

SIZING
Please take care of the correct sizing before placing your order.
The best and safest way to get the exact size is always to visit a local jeweler and let them meassure the right size.

If you are not able to visit a jeweler or want to surprise someone and you don’t know their right size you can meassure it at home, be sure you do this as precisely as possible so we can deliver the right size. 

RING SIZING
Take a ring that fits.
Place the ring on a ruler and measure the inside of the ring carefully at the widest point.
When the inside diameter for instance is 16mm, your NL size is 16.

If you are unsure about the right size or if you like to order a different size, please let us know by sending us an email info@maureencenten.com.

BRACELET SIZING
-Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measurements or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.
If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size.

MATERIAL CARE INFORMATION

Every piece of jewelry is handmade by Maureen Centen in her own studio. All of our jewelry are made of high quality natural materials ; sterling Silver 925, 14 kt gold and gemstones.
Polished sterling silver can turn a bit black after a while, you can clean this easily with a silver polish/ dip which you can buy at the grocery stores or you can embrace the new unique characteristics your jewelry takes on as it ages. Atelier Maureen Centen jewelry is available in a variety of hand finishes. We love to design and finish our jewelry with a RAW and oxidized finish. Those finishes must not be polished with cloths as this will wear away the surface area exposing the bright silver underneath. Oxidization will fade off in time with regular wear, but can always be reapplied.

Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. There is no nickel in silver. Earwires are always sterling silver or gold so they should be safe for sensitive ears.

To keep your jewelry in the best condition as long as possible we always recommend to :
– Store your jewelry properly
– Remove when doing household tasks, exercising or any other activity that could damage or warp your jewelry.
– Do not shower, swim or bathe with your jewelry and avoid exposure to perfume or other chemicals.
– Never wear your jewelry while sleeping
