What if my ring doesn't fit perfectly?
Rings or bands will be re-sized free of charge... however, shipping costs/insurance will be the customer's responsibility.
How do I send my gold jewelry or gemstones to your studio?
If you are wanting to send us your gold please weigh your metal in a light envelope at the post office before you package and send it, that way you will have a record of what you are sending along to us. Send in a package that requires signature upon delivery and a tracking #. If you live in the USA we recommend shipping by USPS with tracking, insurance, and signature required. Once we receive your metal we will confirm with you the weight amount. If you wish to contact us before the shipment is made we will be able to give you an approximate value for your gold depending on the karat.
How is Spencer and Kuehn Fine Jewelry Studio eco-ethical?
All metal used to make our jewelry is fully reclaimed and we offer many "earth friendly" choices in our shop. We can reuse your old gold and gemstones to make a re-designed piece. We also offer many socially conscious gemstone choices that are not mined but rock-hounded, sustainable or top quality lab-grown gemstones.
Can I have a custom or one-of-a-kind design created for me?
If you are wanting a custom or bespoke design created you will collaborate with Spencer & Kuehn in-store, via email, or Skype with us to create a design you'll love. Within a week a personalized selection of drawings and quotes are emailed to you. Once you have made a design choice we will process your order. Click Here for more info on Custom Design.

We only create custom pieces in the precious metals which includes silver, yellow, white, rose, and green-gold, palladium and platinum.
