Resizing takes approximately 7-21 business days depending on the type of ring that needs to be resized. Rings without stones can generally be resized quicker than rings with stones.
Fees for resizing a basic wedding band without stones starts at $30 to make the ring larger or smaller within one size.
Customer pays for the materials and labor of resizing as well as the cost of shipping.
More precious than platinum or palladium, we enjoy working with rhodium not only for the unique look it gives to our pieces, but also because it is a noble metal (resistant to corrosion), hypoallergenic, and nickel free. To clean a rhodium plated item, you never want to use anything abrasive (chemical cleaners, brillo pads, soaps with granules, etc.); we recommend using a gentle soap with water, and pat dry with a soft cloth (not a polishing cloth).
We use black rhodium to plate many of our men’s bands (and women’s bands upon request) to give a unique and rustic dark charcoal finish.
- You may choose to have your band oxidized instead for a dark, more matte look,
however we have found that electroplating black rhodium is a longer lasting finish.
Both processes are not permanent; the plating or oxidization will wear (wear time is
unique to each individual and cannot be predicted), which will expose the metal underneath
(silver, gold, etc). Many customers enjoy the look that the wear process produces, as it provides a rustic and unique look.
If you chose the oxidized finish, we use specialty materials in our shop but you can touch up the finish when it starts to fade with an at home kit; it only bonds to sterling silver, so if your ring is a mixed metal ring with gold, it will allow the gold to shine through.
If you want a permanently black ring, we recommend looking for a tungsten or titanium ring; please note these metals are difficult, if not impossible, to resize and we do not work with them.
We white rhodium plate all of our women’s 14k white gold rings for a pristine bright white finish. We can also white rhodium plate sterling silver bands (men’s or women’s) upon request free of charge if you are concerned about sterling allergies.
As with the black rhodium plated rings, we offer free re-plating for up to a year after the original date of purchase; after that it is a $15 charge to cover material/labor.
Shipping to an address in the US:
We use USPS Priority mail which has an average delivery time of 2-3 days for US orders. Each Priority shipment also includes signature confirmation, insurance and tracking.

Import Duty & Taxes:
You may have to pay import duty and tax on your item. Import tax or duty is a tax collected on imports by the customs authorities of a country. For example if the item is shipped from the US to the UK then revenue from the duty goes to the government of the UK. Import duty and tax rates are determined by the country upon import. Businesses such as ours don't collect or profit in any way from the duty tax and I'm in no way responsible for the tax that has to be paid. The duty and tax are set by the government we don't know what the amount of the tax is, or the percentage. The duty/ tax is the responsibility of the purchaser. PNP Studio is not responsible for this tax and we will not reimburse your for this tax. If you want to inquire about this contact your countries mail system or you can use this link that can help you determine what an estimated cost of duty will be dutycalculator.com
Please make sure your address is correct upon checkout. We will ship to the address provided unless otherwise requested.

Finding Your Size
We suggest finding your ring size by either going to a local jeweler to have your finger sized. Or we are happy to mail you a free plastic ring sizer in the mail. If you need to convert your size please use this chart Ring Size Chart.
Avoid contact with abrasive surfaces and harsh chemicals. Remove jewelry during sports activities, housework and outdoor activities. Remove all jewelry when in a swimming pool or hot tub. Diamond and gemstone jewelry can be washed using mild soap, warm water and a soft bristle brush. Carefully rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth. Rough diamonds: to remove debris from the stone, make a paste with baking soda and water. Using a soft bristle brush rub the paste into the diamond. This also will gently clean the metal.
Regarding a warranty, we make our rings to last, and they are durable and suitable for everyday wear. However, if something were to happen to it we stand behind our products and we will repair/replace the issue if it is a result of manufacturing (you need the prongs tightened, etc) for a period of one year from the purchase date.
Past that, if you'd like insurance on the ring you would need to find an outside company to do so we recommend Jeweler's Mutual.
We are now proud to offer certifications for most all diamond rings. All certifications come from accredited nationally recognized 3rd party, gem labs. The listing description will have a sentence in it stating if the diamond comes with a certificate. If it doesn't already include a certificate we can have the diamond certified for you at a cost of $60 US dollars. Sending a ring in for certification will add 2-3 weeks on to the processing time.
Can We Meet Up
Unfortunately, at this time we do not have a physical retail shop to have customers visit.
Do You Accept Installments,
Deposits or Holds?
Unfortunately, we cannot accept installment payments, deposits, hold items or finance for you. We accept debit, credit, echecks and Paypal for payment.
Can You Recycle My Old Jewelry?
Unfortunately, no. We cannot melt down your old jewelry or reuse it. If you are interested in using the metal from an old piece of jewelry we would recommend to contact a refiner. The refiner will issue you a check for the value of the metal which you can then use to purchase a new piece of jewelry.
Can You Recycle My Old Stones?
Unfortunately no, we can't use your diamonds or other gemstones. Gemstones can sometimes be damaged when setting them, we would rather damage our own gemstones than yours. We can't offer any insurance on your gemstones and can't bear the liability against damaging them, if they got lost in the mail, etc.

What is Recycled Gold/Silver?
Recycled sterling silver and gold is the same color and molecular composition as non recycled metals. The refiner we purchase raw materials from has been committed to providing socially and environmentally-responsible products. The raw metal has been refined from non mined sources such as reclaimed jewelry, silverware and coin precious metal. No metal from mining companies has been used. It isn't any cheaper it is actually more expensive it is better for the environment.
