Wooden Rings 

Caring for Wooden Rings

Wooden rings require some level of care that should be adhered to in order to ensure a sustained durability. The wooden rings need to be oiled or waxed periodically (just as you would wooden furniture). You may apply mineral oil, or wood wax and wipe with a cloth. 

Do not use lacquers or cleaning products that are non-food safe. As mentioned above, Mineral Oil is an excellent choice to maintain the integrity of the wooden ring. Wooden rings should be kept away from moisture and should not be soaked in water. 

Rings that show apparent water damage will void any warranty. Wooden rings may crack or become damaged if the ring is abused, exposed to moisture or chemical agents. 

Wooden rings are not metal and cannot withstand the same amount of abuse and stress as a metal ring might. Common scene should guide you as to what and what not to do with a wooden ring.

Clear and evident abuse may void the warranty.

 

LOSS OF EARRINGS

Occasionally we receive requests for one earring which was lost..  Claudia Lobao only make earrings in pairs, (much like a shoe manufacturer) and they are sold in pairs. Although we will make every attempt to find a single earring for replacement, the chances are that we only have them as a set.
