A: All ring size options are listed according to UK / Irish ring sizes. We typically stock ladies sizes L & M (small) N & O (medium), P & Q (Large) and Men’s S & T (small), U & V (medium), W & X (large). If you require a different size we can have a ring made for you in approximately 2 weeks. Tip: When purchasing a wide ring (or a set of stacking rings) it is often more comfortable to go up one size. Please see the international ring size chart below. We recommend that you ask a reputable jeweller to size your finger for you using "leading edge" as the size guide, taking more than one reading. Most stores will happily do this for free!
Measuring your finger:
Your ring should fit your finger comfortably – snug enough so that it will not fall off and loose enough to slide over your knuckle. Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather. For best results measure your finger size at the end of the day and when your fingers are warm (fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold). Measure more than once to get an accurate reading.
A: Yes. We do free ring sizing on newly purchased rings +/- 2 of our stock sizes. Rings more that 2 sizes up or down are charged at €30.00. We can make virtually any size you like, with a bit of time. Please email us for custom rings email@example.com
A: Yes. Typically we sell our pendants on an 18"/45cm chain for women and a 20"/50cm chain for men (or longer). Depending on the difference in length, weight or the type of chain your wish to have, there may be an additional charge. Contacts us to find out on firstname.lastname@example.org
A: We offer a hassle free, 30-day exchange or refund on unworn pieces. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it.

Q: Are the products pictured actual size?
A: No. Because screens vary in size, it is next to impossible to show an actual size image on the Internet.

Email us if you would like us to take a custom picture for you - we will do our very best!

Q: How do i care for my jewellery?
A: We have a jewellery care guide here with tips on polishing silver and cleaning gold.
Q: What does Carat / Karat mean?
A: When used in reference to gold, carat is a measure of purity. 24 carat is 100% gold. In most parts of the world, the terms carat and karat are used interchangeably (in the USA the designation for gold fineness is karat). The weight of gold in jewellery is measured in grams. All Edge Only jewellery is hallmarked.
**Gold prices may be subject to change due to market fluctuation.
Q: What is Black Rhodium?
A: Rhodium is from the Platinum family of precious metals. It gives a shiny black veil to silver resulting in a cool, gun-metal grey colour. As with all plating it will gradually fade with wear.
Q: What is Vermeil?
A: Gold vermeil (pronounced vur-may) is sterling silver that has been gold plated. Sometimes referred to as gilded silver or gilt, vermeil is made using the process of electrolysis — electricity and an acid bath — to attach the gold to sterling. To be considered vermeil, the gold should be at least 10 carat and be at least 2.5 micrometers thick (at Edge Only we use 18 carat gold). Vermeil differs from gold plating in that the base metal in vermeil is sterling silver (gold plating is generally used on inexpensive base metals like brass). The layer of gold is thicker than that applied using the electroplating process for gold plate. It is hallmarked with 925 for sterling silver. Please note that as it is a surface treatment, gold plating will naturally fade with wear. If you want your design to last forever invest in carat gold. For more see: Tips For Buying Gold
Q: Do you offer re-plating?
A: Yes. We are happy to re-plate your gold vermeil designs when you feel they need them. Most designs will be re-plated in 18 carat gold and sent back by express post for just €30.00. Simply email us to confirm the details: email@example.com
Q: What is a Hallmark?
A: A hallmark is a guarantee of metal purity. Hallmarking is a system that originated in London at Goldsmiths’ Hall in the 14th century. In the UK and in Ireland there are three compulsory hallmarks applied to precious metals as a quality control: a sponsor’s (maker’s) mark, a fineness mark, and an assay office mark. These marks establish the origin and fineness of the precious metal and ensures it has been accurately and independently tested (assayed.) In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission does not require a gold fineness stamp; however, if one is used, it must be accompanied by the manufacturer’s mark.
Example of 14carat gold hallmarked in Dublin Castle:
At Edge Only we only use solid sterling silver and solid carat gold, hallmarked in accordance with UK and Irish law. We do NOT use gold plate, rolled gold or goldfill. For your information, please find below some common terms and techniques used in the wider jewellery and costume jewellery world.
Q: What is Gold Plate?
A: Gold Plated jewellery has a very thin layer of the precious metal electroplated to it. The thickness of gold (or silver if silver plated) is generally only a few microns thick. 18ct gold is typically used. The metal underneath the plating is a base metal (typically brass or pot metal) that must be able to conduct electricity for the bonding process to work. The plating will wear off.
