Product FAQs

Are the Stones real?

How do I measure my ring size?

For help measuring your ring size, please click here to visit our Ring Sizing Guide. This gives you several options for how to measure your ring size, or how to find out someone else’s ring size if you are looking to buy a ring as a gift.



WHERE ARE THE GEMS SOURCED?

The Missoma designers personally source and select all the gemstones themselves from India, Thailand and Hong Kong. They are chosen for their depth of colour, facet and clarity, and we make every effort to select only the highest quality gemstones for our jewellery.

All Diamonds are I2 quality and adhere to the Kimberley Process.



WHERE IS YOUR JEWELLERY MADE?

All Missoma jewellery is hand-made in India & Thailand. Some components are also sourced from Italy.



WHAT IS GOLD VERMEIL?

Missoma jewellery is predominantly made in 18ct gold vermeil. This is sterling silver that has a 2.5 micrometer plating of 18ct gold, via a process of electroplating, an incredibly durable form of plating. All sterling silver is 925 nickel-free and rhodium plated. Please see below for the definition of gold vermeil.

Vermeil is sterling silver that has been micron plated with 18ct gold. Micron plating has undergone a process of electro-plating which is the most durable form of plating. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 2.5 micrometres thick (0.0025mm). Vermeil jewelry has a greater intrinsic value than gold plated jewelry and the thickness of the gold plating is greater too.



WHAT IS GOLD PLATING?

Some collections may also feature pieces that are 18ct gold plated on brass metal. The plating is performed in the same manner as our standard form of vermeil plating via a process of 18ct gold electroplating to a thickness of 2 micrometres. Certain larger, statement pieces make it necessary to plate on brass metal as they cross over into fashion jewellery.
