- Orders, Shipping & Returns
- Jewelry Care
Our jewelry begins in a wax mold. It's carved, shaped and sanded first and then cast in metal. I love the rhythm and sound of sawing and sanding.
After the ring is cast in metal it is then sanded to the desired finish. Sometimes it's smooth and shiny. Other times it's rough and textured.
What I love most about rings is that the wearer gets to truly appreciate them. And they become part of your life.
Our hands are the gateway to our soul~ the energy that comes from our hands is expressed through them. We connect with people through touching. It's my way of connecting with you through my rings.
You'll love the organic shapes and textures because it celebrates imperfection. And there is so much beauty in imperfection. My rings are a reminder that we're not perfect and that is perfectly fine.
Our Materials and Product Information:
Chikahisa Studio uses sterling silver, bronze, 18k yellow gold, as well as precious and semi-precious stones in its designs. Balance, sustainability, beauty, and joy are integral to my work in both design and process. When ever possible, metals are derived from recycled sources. All diamonds are conflict free. All work is handcrafted, happily slight variations can occur.
Due to their handcrafted quality, Chikahisa Studio rings have a unique sizing. For questions about ring sizing please view and print our ring sizer.

Care and Cleaning:
To keep your jewelry dust and dirt free store your pieces in a jewelry box with the lid closed (or a zip lock bag). Wrapping your jewelry in a soft cloth will also keep it clean and prevent it from tarnishing. If your piece was purposely oxidized to give depth and character, be careful as cleaners will remove this process. Remember to apply your hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics before putting your jewelry on. Leather pieces should be coiled naturally to retain their shape. Beaded necklaces should be stored flat to reduce stretching
Mild cleaners and polishing cloths can be used to brighten and restore your jewelry, especially metals, but beware of harsh chemicals or ionic cleaners. Semi-precious stones are best cleaned with a damp cloth. Gently pat dry using a soft-cloth and make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing again. Do not use solvents, any harsh chemicals, or any abrasive materials.
We use a proprietary bronze blend that closely mimics the color of 18k yellow gold. I have chosen this particular blend because of the color and beauty. Therefore, it costs a little bit more to create the pieces.
What is bronze?
Bronze is composed of copper and tin. If you have an allergy to either of these metals, I wouldn’t suggest you wear it.
This can happen when someone wears bronze. It’s not an allergic reaction but a
chemical reaction due to your skin PH. This is a temporary reaction and can easily be washed off with warm soapy water. It can be inhibited by putting a clear coat of nail polish where the skin comes into contact with the jewelry, ie the inside of a ring. It will need to be reapplied as it wears off.
Use a polishing cloth designed for silver and other metals. We sell a wonderful polishing cloth in our store . Or you can use a jewelry cleaner, such as this one
