Details & Options
Horse hair: Slightly less than a little finger’s width of full length hair, 40 - 45 cm, is enough to make this ring. We always return any unused hair but it must fit in our envelopes so please don’t send more than needed as the excess will be discarded.
We can braid your ring with the hair of one horse or we can combine horse hair. Two tone rings are especially attractive. Specify design in Special Instructions if combining colours, like "use grey hair in the centre and black hair at the edges".
Size: We will cast your ring individually and the horse hair is permanently glue into the ring band and so it cannot be altered or a refund given if you have ordered the wrong size. Therefore please take care to order the correct size, bearing in mind that this is a wide band ring. You can take the measurement off an existing ring provided it’s 8 mm wide, or have a local jewellery measure your finger with the correct width ring sizer. Alternatively, we can send you our ring sizer in which case on receipt please select the correct size and notify us by email so that we can commence casting with minimum delay. Then please return the ring sizer to us in the SAE provided together with your horse hair (Couture orders). (We can only provide an SAE for domestic UK orders).
Engraving: on the inside of the ring band, or on the ring cap, or both. Protective ring cap may be worn on top or palm side.
Timescale: All our jewellery is truly hand made and so timescales depend on order levels. Typically it takes around 4 - 6 weeks. Please email us beforehand if you have a particular deadline and we will try to accommodate you.
Please look after your jewellery!
As much as you love it, horse hair jewellery is not unbreakable and if you “love it too much”, your jewellery may not last! The better you care for your horse hair jewellery, the better it will last you.
Always follow the care instructions. In particular avoid prolonged soaking and anything that might snag, cut or abrade the horse hair. Please read our warranty. Failure to follow our care instructions excludes our warranty.
For obvious reasons rings are more susceptible to wear, especially if made of natural material like horse hair. We therefore recommend removing your ring when bathing, applying hand lotions, washing up or swimming.
