Do Ippolita bangles come in different sizes and how can I measure my wrist?
Ippolita's bangles do come in different sizes and the brand has a specific measuring tip so that you can get the correct size for your wrist. According to Ippolita, their bangles are measured based upon the size of your knuckles and not based upon your wrist size. First, tuck your thumb behind your other 4 fingers and use a measuring tape to measure your hand's circumference from knuckle to knuckle. Then, refer to the sizing chart on the top of each individual product page to compare your measurements to Ippolita's size chart for that specific bangle.
What are some tips for caring for my Ippolita jewelry?
- never use an ultrasonic cleaning machine
- keep away from harsh chemicals and abrasive surfaces
- take off your Ippolita before swimming in a chlorinated pool
- store in the Ippolita pouch in which your jewelry was received
- do not store jewelry in a leather pouch
- keep Ippolita jewelry separate from each other when packing, so as not to cause scratching
- use jewelry cream or clothes specific to the jewelry metal type and use sparingly
Where is Ippolita jewelry made?
Ippolita jewelry is designed in the brand's NYC studio, and then individually crafted at various factories worldwide, each factory separately sourced for its expertise regarding each Ippolita style. Ippolita does mention that if you are interested in the country of origin information on a specific style, to chat with an assistant on the company website to get a definitive answer.
Does Ippolita go on sale?
Yes! Ippolita does go on sale. You can find Ippolita on sale at Shop It To Me, Ippolita's company website, and other fine department stores and boutiques worldwide.
What is Ippolita doing regarding sustainability?
Ippolita is big into designing with the planet in mind, so the company cuts all of its own stones into their specific shapes. This allows for less waste and the chance to turn obscure rough pieces into perfectly crafted stones. In another attempt to be as sustainable as possible, Ippolita uses only 100% recycled gold for its jewelry, and its quality perfectly mirrors mined gold, so nothing is compromised.
