There are several ways to measure your finger size.  Please note that when your fingers are cold your ring size will be smaller.  If you are ordering a wider band you may need to go up one size.

1: Visit your local jeweller and they will be able to measure your finger precisely.

*this is the best option as it’s more accurate*

2: If you live local to Falmouth, visit me at an event.

3: Use this guide…

Paper being used to measure ring size in a finger Measuring ring size. Paper used to measure finger against a ruler showing 64mm.

Cut a strip of paper a few mm wide.

Wrap it around the finger, marking with a pencil where it overlaps (you may need an assistant at this point!)

***Make sure that this is able to slide over the knuckle***

(You may wish to tape it closed whilst you test it)

If it fits, flatten out the paper and measure the length accurately.

You can now use this guide to help you calculate your ring size.  Please check this carefully!

  • Cut a strip of paper a few mm wide or use a piece of tape stuck to itself so that it doesn’t stick to you.
  • Wrap it around the widest part of your hand, marking with a pencil where it overlaps (you may need an assistant at this point!)
  • ***Make sure that this is able to slide over the hand, onto the wrist***

(You may wish to tape it closed whilst you test it)

  • If it fits, flatten out the paper/tape and measure the length accurately.  Send me this length – it will be made a few millimetres wider to allow for ease of fitting.

16", 18" and 20" chain lengths on a model
Porth necklaces come on a choice of chain – 16″, 18″ and 20″ (see image).

The best-seller is 18″; larger seaglass pieces work well on longer chains and so this option has been added to the shop.

If you would like something different, please get in touch so that I can try and meet your requirements.

How will my order be packaged?Necklace, ring and earring boxes displayed on a wooden background. Te boxes are grey, sealed with a turquoise strip and the logo sticker

Porth jewellery comes beautifully packaged.  All rings and necklaces come in a grey card box, sealed with a turquoise strip.

Each piece containing Cornish seaglass also has an insert showing where it was found – perfect for that special gift.

Stud earrings are presented on a turquoise card.  If the item is posted, they will be packaged to keep them safe.

If your order arrives in a padded envelope or containing bubble-wrap, this has been reused where-ever possible.  I aim to recycle – we don’t want any more plastic in our ocean!

How much is postage?

All UK orders are free postage

Wearing your silver jewellery is the best way to keep it tarnish-free along with keeping it in an airtight bag when not wearing (adding a silica gel package will help too).  However, you may still want to clean it occasionally.  Talk-town cleaning cloths are a useful addition to your jewellery box and can be purchased easily online and on your local high street.

Avoid wearing your silver jewellery in the sea or pool and avoid spraying perfumes, cosmetics and other household chemicals directly onto it.

Some people choose to rub a small amount of coconut oil onto their seaglass to enhance the colour.
