I can’t purchase the Hyo item I want online. What can I do?
Not every Hyo Silver item is available for purchase online. However, you can call into our office to check on the availability of the item. Even if an item is “out of stock” online, we may have it at our store location. If the item is out of stock at our store location, we will be glad to order one for you. A friendly Hyo Silver representative will be happy to assist you.
What are your products made out of?
In order to provide high quality products, we use solid sterling silver and 1/10th gold fill overlay on all of our pieces, twice as much gold as 1/20th, which is commonly used in the industry. In the case of solid gold rings (special order only), the layered detail is also solid gold. Although we never create plated jewelry items, customers may order plated buckles instead of solid buckles to match their budget.
What is gold overlay?
Gold fill, also called gold overlay, is made by using heat and pressure to apply a layer of karat gold to a base of less costly metal. This produces a surface with karat gold. The minimum layer of karat gold must equal at least 1/20th of the total weight.
How much would it cost to clean my Hyo product?
We will gladly clean and blacken/antique any Hyo product free of any service charge. The customer will only be expected to pay the shipping of the item back to them. If a customer comes into our store or visits us at our booth at a show, we will gladly clean and blacken/antique any Hyo product completely free of charge for life!
How do I clean and care for my Hyo product(s)?
To safeguard against damage, and personal injury, always remove your jewelry before engaging in sports or heavy labor. Quality stones and precious metal will not stand abuse. Some of our jewelry is produced with a background antiquing that even with normal wear will fade. We suggest you remove your jewelry before putting on lotion, bathing, washing dishes, ETC. to protect your jewelry. To clean our products, use a mild soap and warm water. For tarnished silver, we use a product called “Tarn-X”- not to be used on porous stones (turquoise). You may also use a rouge polishing cloth. We will do touch-ups and cleaning on your jewelry at any time for a shipping fee, or free of charge when you visit our store location. Please view our extended care instructions as well.
My Hyo item is in need of repair. Do you offer these services?
Our one year warranty, beginning on the day of purchase, protects against manufacturer defects, under normal use of the product. We reserve the right to inspect the item to determine if it has been abused in any way, including exposure to harsh chemicals or damaging impacts. During the one year warranty, there is no cost on repairs for manufacturer defects, only shipping charges. For items not covered under warranty, we offer repair and refurbishing services at a reasonable rate. Our Service Request Form is available to print on our website for you convenience.
I broke my chain. Do you warranty them?
Chains are sold at wholesale price as a courtesy to our customers. Since they are provided by a 3rd party, chains cannot be warrantied. However, we will sell you another chain at the discounted price or repair your chain if possible.
I placed my order yesterday, but today I found another item I want to add to my order. What should I do?
Once an order is completed, the next order is treated as a totally separate order. Another order will have to be placed. If the item(s) are in stock, we will ship within 24 hours. There is a chance that your order has not been shipped out if you ordered close to the end of the day. Call as soon as possible with your additional order to save on shipping charges.
Are Hyo ear posts hypoallergenic?
All Hyo ear posts and ear wires on earrings are made of sterling silver. People who are not sensitive to silver should not experience any allergic reaction.
I love my Hyo ring, but it’s not my size. What can I do?
For stock items, there is a 30 day exchange period of which you may exchange for a different size. Rings are available in full and half sizes, sized within a quarter. For custom items or when ordering online, we recommend you get sized for the band width you are ordering. For our ring styles that have a band width of less than a ¼, typical ring sizes will equate. For our ring styles with bands 3/8 inch or wider, it may be necessary to go up a ½ or whole size from your typical “skinny band” measurement. Because customers are responsible for ordering the correct size, we recommend being sized for the width of band you are ordering to insure accurate measurement. Rings may vary within a ¼ size.
Can you re-size my Hyo Silver ring?
Many of the styles of rings we produce contain a continuing pattern around the band for which re-sizing is not recommended. Sizing these types of rings will break the continuing scroll pattern on the back of the band, and potentially leave a small gap. Sizing is only recommended for items that are non-exchangeable, like items past the 30 day exchange period or Custom Orders. Rings can be sized within one full size down or up.
Can you set a diamond in a Hyo Silver ring?
Our company does not handle diamonds but customers wanting diamonds set in a Hyo Silver ring do have a few options: Customers can purchase Hyo Silver rings with our standard stone and setting, then when they are ready to replace the created stone with a diamond, they have a local jeweler mount their diamond with a white gold or yellow gold setting. The other option is to special order the ring with no stone or setting in our standard sterling silver and gold overlay material or our solid white or yellow gold options (call for quote) and have a local jeweler mount the diamond with a gold setting. Feel free to contact us at 877-796-7961 to speak with a designer about options.
My friend purchased one of your products and I loved it so much that I ordered one too. It looks great, but it is slightly different than my friend’s product. Is this normal?
Some jewelry stores manufacture massive amounts of products using “cookie-cutter” techniques. Unlike these stores, Hyo Silver items are individually created by our artisans and contain subtle variations, making each piece unique. It is completely normal to have slight variations from one piece to another.
I lost one of my Hyo earrings. Do I have to purchase a complete new set to replace it?
At Hyo Silver, we understand that accidents happen. If one of the earrings you purchase from us is lost or destroyed, and is not a closeout item, you may purchase another pair from us for one-half the price of the new pair, when you ship the remaining earring back to us.
