Jewelry Care

How do I care for my jewelry?

Keep it Dry: We recommend you do NOT wear RockLove in the shower or a chlorinated pool since chemicals, soaps, and other body products (natural or otherwise) can cause your jewelry to tarnish, plating to fade, or even damage genuine stones or pearls.

You Snooze, You Lose: We also recommend you do NOT sleep in your jewelry since chains or slender pendant parts can become entangled, snagged, and possibly broken; plus it is a precaution for your own safety.

But you really want to wear it for that underwater mermaid photoshoot?  And do you really have to take it off every time you wash your hands?

As long as you do not hold RockLove responsible for breakage or replacement, we do have plenty of customers who choose to wear their jewelry in these situations.  Best practice is to rinse your jewelry with water, pat it dry, and then gently wipe it with a jewelry polishing cloth.

The big no-no’s:

  • Never get chemicals on pearls and genuine stones
  • Never use electrosonic or liquid cleaners
  • Never wear pointy jewelry or slender chains to bed

Polish it Up: RockLove provides a signature purple polishing cloth with every order. Give your jewelry a gentle wipe to remove the day’s grime and keep it sparkling bright!

Will it turn me green?

Nickel-Free Sterling Silver: RockLove jewelry is hand crafted from the finest nickel-free sterling silver (925). It will not give you a base-metal allergic reaction, will not rub off on your skin, and will not turn green.

Artisan Brass: RockLove also works in artisan brass and bronze - oxidation depends greatly on the wearer's skin acidity. Black or green tarnish typically occurs when the metal is exposed frequently to sweat, showers, and swimming pools, however this oxide washes off the skin with soap and water, and it wipes off the piece with a bit of toothpaste (minty fresh, not heavy whitening) or a standard jewelry polishing cloth.

Broken/Damaged Jewelry

If you have purchased a RockLove item from a third party, all returns and exchanges must be handled though that retailer.

Warranty: Jewelry purchased through has a warranty of up to 15 days after receipt... anything truly defective usually presents in the first wear. Please email with photographs of the issue for our review. Items damaged by prolonged wear or catastrophic trauma (snagged violently on clothing, stepped on/slammed, gold plating worn off by exposure to chemicals from shower, swimming pool, lotion, soap, etc) do not fall under RockLove's return/exchange policy.

Please read the above FAQ about jewelry care - gold & rhodium plate, gemstones, pearls, etc. are affected by soaps, lotions, perfume, oils - there are so many different chemicals compounds, even in natural products, that it is impossible to isolate what products may strip plating. Please avoid these chemicals as RockLove is not responsible for replacing your jewelry if damaged in this manner.

If your jewelry has been well-loved, a local jeweler should be able to reset your stone, replace your chain/clasp, or replate your gold. Google local jewelers in your area.

Broken/Damaged Packaging

RockLove's packaging is a beautiful enhancement to the customer experience however it is not the product. Defective jewelry will be replaced immediately but damaged exterior packaging is not valid for exchange, refund, or discount.

Alterations & Customization

Officially Licensed: All licensed product goes through a rigorous approval process that can take months to years: sketches, sculpts, sampling, compliance testing, durability testing... every step ensures that the final item honors the storytelling and quality of the franchise it represents. Physical sculpt, chain length, chain type, finish, plating, enamel, size, price - these are all decisions made by designer/jeweler Allison Cimino.

Alterations: RockLove does not alter officially licensed product. Any changes a customer desires to make must be made themselves (or preferably with a local jeweler) and technically diminishes the jewelry from officially licensed status.

Chain Lengths: RockLove often chooses lengths that best accommodate a multitude of body types. However understandably, what is too short on some is too long on others. Customers are welcome to swap the chain to something else, but must do it themselves (or with a local jeweler) and are encouraged not to alter the pendant itself.

How do I find my ring size?

Finding Your Ring Size: The most accurate way to find your ring size is to go to a professional... any jewelry store or pawn shop will have a ring sizer which they can slip on your finger right there. Be sure to size the finger you want to wear it on because your dominant hand (writing hand) is typically a little bigger.

Measure From Home: A convenient at-home way to measure your ring size is to order a ring size measuring tool online. It only costs a few dollars and can be delivered to your door... THIS ONE is highest rated on Amazon Prime.  Again, be sure to measure your chosen finger on your chosen hand as all of your finger sizes will vary.

Measure a Ring You Already Own: Are you trying to be sneaky and give a surprise gift? Or have a favorite ring that fits perfectly but you do not know the size? Measure the inside diameter of a ring you already own and convert the size using the conversion chart below.

In-Between Sizes: If you wear an in-between ring size, choose whichever size you are closer to (Example: 8.75 should choose a 9 while an 8.25 should choose an 8). However when you are exactly in-between, it often depends on the shape of your knuckle. Rings can be more easily made larger, but should be stretched by a professional jeweler and only by about a half a size. If you are exactly in between sizes, order the smaller size and then your local jeweler can enlarge it.

Size Converter: The RockLove website is listed in US sizes. After you confirm your ring size, you can convert your measurement using the ring size conversion chart below.  For international customers, this includes other country ring sizing codes, which can be converted to their US equivalent.
