Details & Options
Horse hair: A scant pencil’s width of clean full length horse hair, at least 14 cm long, 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. The braid comprises 8 tiny bunches of horse hair so please specify the proportions if you would like us to combine different colours, e.g. ”4:4 black: grey” or “2:2:4 chestnut:grey:black”.
Ring size: Your ring will be individually cast to order and cannot be altered. The profile of this ring design is non-standard and so we will send you our ring sizer. 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: Around the inside of the ring band (max 15 characters).
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. For obvious reasons rings are more susceptible to wear, especially if made of natural material like horse hair and more so if incorporating bullion or silk thread. We therefore recommend removing your ring when bathing, applying hand lotions, washing up or swimming. Please read our warranty. Failure to follow our care instructions excludes our warranty.
