We take great pride in our beautiful packaging and we aim to create a memorable experience.
We use 100% plastic free packaging; a considered and intentional combination of recycled or recyclable cardboard, recycled kraft brown paper (instead of bubble wrap) and paper packaging tape. Each purchase is hand-packaged and ECO protected for a safe journey to you.
Please note: We are conscious of our environmental impact and therefore each order will come in only one box unless otherwise requested. We attempt to minimise the amount of packaging used.
Simply include the details in the purchase notes when you are processing your order. We then send the treasure and personalised message directly to the receiver. (No invoice / purchase receipt included)

When it comes to our rings (and bespoke pieces) we primarily use 14k or 18k Australian Yellow, Rose or White gold. All metal used in the Violet Gray rings is sourced from Australian companies that are members of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
* Upon request, we can also craft in other materials. Unfortunately at this time, we don’t offer Bespoke pieces in sterling silver or plated materials.
All stones incorporated into Violet Gray pieces are Earth grown. We do not use any synthetic (lab grown) or imitation stones unless specifically requested in a Bespoke piece.
We encourage you to visit your local Jeweller and have your fingers professionally sized. Remember that all of your fingers will vary between sizes and your dominant hand will be larger than the other (so have the finger you intend to wear your ring on sized).
As ring sizes are not universal and there may be slight variances between our sizing and other brands, please also ask for the internal measurement in mm.

Or explore our SIZING GUIDE HERE (which includes a link to the International Ring Size Conversion Chart that we refer to).
Rest assured, most of our rings can be resized.
The best way to move forward is to have your finger professionally sized by a jeweller and then contact us to establish the next step / receive further instructions for returning your beautiful ring.
If the resize is uncomplicated, generally expect a 1-2 week turn around (plus shipping times).
