All Kristina Ferenchuk Jewellery pieces are handmade from 18 karat Gold or Sterling Silver 925, precious and semi-precious stones and are meant to be treasured, worn everyday and become future heirlooms.
To ensure the longevity of your jewellery, we recommend:
- To treat with care and avoid strenuous activities, which will expose your jewellery to knocks and scratches.
- To remove your jewellery before bed, showering and washing your hands.
- To avoid exposing your jewellery to perfume, hair products and cosmetics.
- To store your pieces separately to avoid scratching.
Metals can naturally develop a surface patina over time from oxygen, sprays, creams and skin acidity.
- To avoid using bleach, hand sanitiser and chemicals with opal stones and pearls.
Jewellery can become tarnished from daily wear and pollutions in the air. In order to restore luster and shine we recommend:
- Polishing gold pieces with a dry and clean polishing cloth.
- Cleaning diamond pieces using a soft bristle brush and warm soapy water, followed by a rinse in warm water and dried with a soft cloth.

This deposit will later be deducted from the final quote for the design of your choice. If the client changes their mind about ordering a bespoke piece once the design work has been started, we reserve the right to keep the full deposit as a fee for time spent on the design.

CLIENT'S REPURPOSED JEWELLERY & GEMSTONES
Gemstones that are provided by the client, set in jewellery or loose, new or used, that have not been purchased through Kristina Ferenchuk Jewellery, are considered as client’s gemstones. For all the gemstones that were not purchased through Kristina Ferenchuk Jewellery, including diamonds, pearls, especially coloured gemstones, gemstones that have natural inclusions in them, or gemstones that were previously worn or set in jewellery, there is always a very small risk of chips and breakages during the setting or the making of the piece. In the rare case of a damage to the client’s gemstone or gemstones, we will not be held liable for replacing the gemstone, nor will we be held liable for the value of the gemstone. All the work done by Kristina Ferenchuk Jewellery or her subcontractors such as setters, platers or goldsmiths, on the client’s gemstones is at the client’s own risk. Upon request of client and at its own risk, Kristina Ferenchuk Jewellery may:
- In case of minor chips, to have the gemstone recut and reset into the final jewellery piece
- In case of a total breakage to salvage whatever is possible of the gemstone and have it recut in smaller gemstones
In rare occasions, if we see that the gemstone is at a high risk of breakage, or is not natural, or has had treatment that puts it at risk of damage, we reserve the right to refuse to work with that gemstone.
