RING SIZESThere are many factors that affect a ring size, including air travel, spicy foods, alcohol, climate change and altitude can dramatically influence finger size. DOLCE guarantees that rings will be the size ordered; however, we cannot guarantee the size of your finger.
If you believe that your hand may be swollen, we strongly suggest a ring ordered not be processed until an accurate size is determined, either by a visit to DOLCE, by a jeweler in your home city or by using a ring gauge, which we can provide.
The first time we adjust the size of a ring the service is complimentary, providing the piece is in new condition and within 30 days of purchase.
If the ring size must be adjusted again, or if it is the first time we adjust the size of a ring that was especially made for you, the following charges apply. Please note that shipping fees may be applied as well. Ring sizing prices are subject to change.

JEWELRY CAREAll pieces should be stored in your DOLCE pouches. This will help prevent scratches on the stone and metal surfaces. Although some stones are more sensitive than others, it is best to keep all stones away from extreme heat and sudden changes in temperature. We recommend applying hair sprays and fragrances before putting on your jewelry, especially when wearing soft or porous stones. Always remove your jewelry before washing to prevent soap build up. It is beneficial to wear your jewelry often. The natural oils in your skin help to keep your stones and metals clean and conditioned.
You can make your own cleaning solution using six parts warm water to one part ammonia. Dip your gold, platinum, or silver jewelry in the solution and scrub gently using a soft bristle toothbrush. Rinse in warm water and pat dry with a paper towel. Silver may require additional cleaning with the use of a tarnish removing polish.
Diamonds, rubies and sapphires are considered hard stones. The cleaning solution described above would be a safe method of cleaning these gemstones. Also you may use the solution and instructions on amethyst, aquamarine, beryl, carnelian, chalcedony, citrine, garnet, iolite, jade, moonstone, morganite, peridot, quartz, spinel, topaz, tourmaline, and zircon. All the stones mentioned above may also be cleaned using an ultrasonic cleaner; however, we recommend using caution with beryl, garnet, iolite, peridot, spinel, topaz, and tourmalines.
Apatite, emerald, and tanzanite are considered softer stones and should only be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush. These stones, as well as coral, lapis opal, pearl, and turquoise, which are porous, should not come in contact with any acids, chemicals, or solvents. It is best to avoid contact with water for these more porous stones. Pearls are especially sensitive to such agents; even cosmetics can be harmful to the pearl's luster. We recommend having your pearls professionally cleaned and restrung on an annual basis.
