There are several options in terms of our availability. What do all terms imply?
In stock; this piece can be purchased right away.
Sold out; the product is no longer available.
Made to order; the requested piece is out of stock at the moment. Through the made to order option you can still place your order. We'll start making your trophy as soon as we receive the order. This means that you have to wait a little longer for your piece, with a maximum of six weeks.
How come not all items are in stock at all times?
Our jewelry is made by hand and for the most part on request, which means that our stock is dynamic. This sometimes results in pieces momentarily being not directly available for purchase. For this we apologize because it implies a longer delivery time. Since we would still like to offer you the possibility to order the piece of your liking, we added the ‘made to order’ option to our webshop. This means that soon as we’ve received your order, we start working on it. And of course we’ll let you know how long it will take us to deliver it to your door. So really, all it means is that we’re making an item just for you and it might take us a bit longer than usual.

We present a continuous collection, which we enrich with new designs on a regular basis. This means that it might occur that we say goodbye to an existing design. If it says ‘sold out’, it means we don’t have this trophy in stock and it won’t be longer produced.
Our curated vintage selection consists of solely unique rings; these are personally selected and freshen up, and of each ring exists only 1. If a vintage ring says ‘sold out’, it means the ring is sold and we don’t have this trophy in stock anymore.
Made to order: fine jewelry
We love to see you mark your moment with solid gold! We use 14k recycled solid gold for our handmade trophies. All ordered fine jewelry items are especially made for you, on a 'made to order' base.
As we understand that some solid golden trophies are needed sooner (hello, engagement ring! Hi, wedding band!) we are often able to make your special trophy within 3-4 weeks (not during holiday seasons). Please contact our customer service to talk about the possibilities.
When purchasing a fine jewelry, you can add notes to your order in which you can inform us about your personal wishes (for example a ring size other than indicated with the purchase). Feel free to contact us anytime via firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any additional information. We are here to help you out!

We choose to work only with the pure precious metals sterling silver and gold. Our experience shows that materials such as brass and copper often have an allergic reaction to the skin. Production with brass and copper is cheaper, but the replacement effect is all the greater. We do not want to participate in fast fashion and the current disposable lifestyle: our trophies are for you to cherish and to wear anytime. Forever.
We offer our jewelry in sterling silver 925, with a possible 18kt gold plating. When we talk about gold plated items, the sterling silver product is covered with a thin layer (3 micron) of 18kt gold. This gives the golden finish to a trophy.
Keep in mind that plated items will get traces of wear in the end and the gold plating will fade. Always. It depends on your pH value of your skin, the average use and how you treat your jewelry on how quickly it will appear. Luckily, we offer a trophy care service where we can give your item some tender, love and care and a new gold plated finish. Feel free to contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions of this concern. We are here to help you out.
All jewelry needs tender, love and care. It is best to store your trophies in a closed jewelry box (for example in The Boyscouts box), and we recommend taking off your jewelry before going to sleep, showering, gardening, exercising or going to the sauna. Regular polishing with a silver polishing cloth is also a must; this way you give oxidized silver jewelry (silver items that turned black) back their sparkling shine.
If your trophy has a defect within six months after you purchased it, you can send it back to us after reporting it through our customer service and we'll repair it free of charge.
If your trophy broke after six months, as items occasionally do, you can make use of our trophy care service. For a friendly price we'll repair your item and send it back to you, good as new. Our trophy care service starts at 29 euros (this does not include shipping) and can be ordered here. Inform us by sending an email with some images of your broken item to email@example.com. This way, we can check the possibilities of your repair and inform you about the next step.
When we talk about gold plated items, our sterling silver product is covered with a thin layer (1,5 micron) of 18kt gold. This gives the golden finish to a trophy. After a while, depending on several causes, gold plating will slowly fade. Always. That’s why we offer trophy care, our service where we take care of your item. Once polished and replated, your trophy will be as new again.
You can order your trophy care here. Inform us by sending an email with some images of the item to firstname.lastname@example.org, and send the item together with a filled in reclamation form to our Studio address:
3014 AD – Rotterdam
Download the reclamation form here.
We advise to send it in a solid package as a mailbox post with a track and trace.
Once we received your order and item, we will start the replating process and make your item as new again. Please keep in mind that replating might take up to 3-4 weeks.
We can often resize solid gold (vintage) rings, depending on the design of the ring and the stone setting. The additional costs are €35. Ask us about your wishes and possibilities through email@example.com. Per request, you can select 'solid gold' option in our trophy care section and add a note to your order with the correct size.
