Shipping to Germany takes 1-2 business days, it takes about 3-4 business days to Austria, about 4-6 business days to the UK, about 8 days to the US and Australia and about three weeks to other countries - if everything goes smoothly! 

In busier times, shipping duration can vary and delays on the courier and connection courier ends (DHL, German Post, Royal Mail, USPS etc.) can happen.

Sizing

How do I find out my ring size?

You can find out your ring size like so:

- Either find a ring you already love and wear and measure its inside diameter

- Or cut a strip of paper, wrap it around your finger and mark where the paper meets. Now measure the distance between your markings to get your finger circumference

- Use this conversion chart to find your size:

How-to-care for your jewellery

Here are some tips to keep in mind:

- Store in a jewellery box separately to avoid scratching and tangling and keep dry

- Carefully put it on last in your dressing routine

- Take it off first in your evening routine

And what you should avoid:

- Don’t wear when showering, washing hands, swimming

- Don’t wear when exercising

- Don’t wear when sleeping

- Don’t wear when cleaning and getting in contact with chemicals

- Don’t get in contact with perfume, lotion, cosmetics

Why do I need to follow care tips for high quality jewellery?

Gold and Silver are organic materials. If the plating rubs off after years of wear or a scratch breaks your heart for perfection – remember, it's natural. Take care of what you love and increase the lifetime of your fine jewellery with our re-plating and repair service. Reach out to our care team: care@stilnest.com

materials

925 Silver

All our 925 Silver jewellery is rhodium-plated to make it more durable. The extra layer of rhodium gives our jewellery its special silver-white shine. Rhodium is considered the rarest and most valuable precious metal in the world – well above Gold or Silver.

Gold Vermeil

Gold Vermeil pieces are 925 Silver, plated with Gold, and meet fine quality standards. Vermeil jewellery requires at least 10-karat gold with a thickness of 1.5 microns. We use recycled 24-karat, the purest Gold available, with a thickness of 2.5-5 microns, because we want to make it last.

All our pieces are all nickel-free and allergy friendly. 


production

As you may know, instead of manufacturing large batches, every SAMMI MARIA jewellery item is made-to-order, making sure no resources or precious metals are being used without a clear purpose.

Firstly, every single SAMMI MARIA piece gets casted (meaning liquid sterling silver is poured into a mould!) and after that personally hand-finished by our goldsmiths. The last step is called galvanization: At this stage, your jewellery gets purified in silver or gold, gloss improved and its durability strengthened, so it is flawless for years to come.

In total, production takes 10-12 business days from beginning to end. As soon as your piece is on its way to you, you'll receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking link. Shipment can take from one to three weeks*.

*Average shipping times are: Germany 1-2 days, Austria  3-4 days, UK/ US/ Europe/ Switzerland 1 week and Australia/ Asia/ Canada/ South America 2-3 weeks.
