How should I store my jewelry?
Leather earrings should hang or lay flat in a dry cool space.
Can I get my leather wet?
No, leather is never "water proof". Our sealant does protect from everyday wear and weather changes, however, submerging your leather in water will cause it to fade, harden, or change the color. We don't recommend swimming, bathing, or washing dishes in your leather.
What do I do if my leather does get wet?
If you do get it wet, simply pat it dry with a towel and allow your leather to dry naturally. Do not place it near heat. It is natural for leather to take on it's own characteristics over time, including pieces that get some water spotting. It's all part of the beauty - wear it, have fun, and enjoy.
What do the backsides of the earrings look like?
The backsides are suede similar in color to the front. Depending on the design, the back and edges are either finished for a smooth look or left raw for its natural texture.
Are your earrings lightweight?
Do I have to wear the backing on the wire hook?
Yes! They're so lightweight you'll probably forget they're on. Each pair of earrings we offer only weighs about one ounce or less. We recommend always wearing your rubber earring backs provided to you with your order.
I lost one of my earrings! Can I purchase just one?
No. You will have to purchase a pair.
Why is there a price difference between your leather options?
This is because some materials may be more expensive due to leather weight, type and amount used for designs.
Do your earring wires have nickel in them?
No. All of our earrings wires are nickel and lead-free which work well for those of you with sensitive ears.
Can you personalize my items by stamping a name, date, word, or quote?
Sorry, we do not offer that type of customization at this time.
