Each piece of ME jewelry is hand-crafted and deserves careful handling.

We recommend that you clean your jewelry with a polishing cloth and store it in our flannel bag to prevent tarnish and scratches. Avoid contact with chemicals from perfume, hairspray, lotion, etc. Always remove your jewelry before washing to prevent soap build up. It is beneficial to wear your jewelry often. The natural oils in your skin help to keep your jewelry clean and conditioned. Bright silver may require additional cleaning with the use of a tarnish removing polish. We recommend having your pearls professionally cleaned.


Please call the Studio to discuss a repair. ME will gladly repair normal wear and tear issues that you may incur such as broken post or clip backs or broken string at no charge up to three times. After that, charges for time and materials will apply.

We can also clean your jewelry for you, but you are responsible for all shipping costs.

Other repair charges are dependent on the repair required and current metal prices. There will be a charge to make a mate, lost pieces/stones, sizing a ring or self-inflicted damages (i.e. dropping your ring in the garbage disposal).

We are committed to protecting the security of our customers' personal information. Under absolutely no circumstances will we sell, loan, rent, trade or release your personal information to a third party.
