How are SNASH pieces made?
We carve every design out of wax and cast / produce them in our NYC studio. We employ a small all-female team and work with local contractors. All pieces are 100% USA made using recycled metals whenever possible.
What metals do you use?
We cast in most popular metals including brass, white bronze, sterling silver and solid gold in both 10KT and 14KT. Additional metals including white gold, rose & white gold and platinum are available upon request. We also offer a variety of plating options.
How can I polish my ring?
While we do sell polishing cloths, any treated cloth that works on sterling or gold pieces (not eyeglasses), would remove tarnish on any of our brass, sterling or gold rings. There are also a number of at-home polishing remedies available on the web.
Here are some at-home fixes ----->
Will I turn green?
Fingers turning green is a normal reaction that affects some people, but not all. While it happens less frequently to folks with dry skin or with a generally small salt intake, it can happen to anybody. The best way to keep this from happening is to order your ring in sterling silver or solid gold. Adding a plating to your ring will also help. Need a quick fix? Use a small amount for clear nail polish along the inner band - this acts as a quick at-home alternative to a jewelers lacquer, creating a barrier between your skin and the metal that you can potentially react to.
Do you plate your rings?
Typically, no, our brass rings are not plated. We leave our rings in raw metal unless you opt to have your ring plated. We do this so the rings are easy for you to re-polish on your own with any jewelry polishing cloth.
What kind of platings do you offer?
We offer a very thick micron plating in gold, rose gold and gunmetal. While "Gold Vermeil" is an industry-wide standard of 2.5 mil micron plating over sterling silver, we also offer this same plating grade over brass or white bronze for the same price. While our plating has been tested and does last a very long time, we recommend avoiding water and humidity to keep it as long lasting as possible.
How should I care of my piece?
Avoid storing in humid places (such as bathrooms) as well as steering clear of water, lotions, and chlorine. Remove tarnish with any treated jewelry polishing cloth.
Do you offer custom pieces?

How long do custom orders take?
Custom orders can take 6-8 weeks start to finish. Please allow an additional 2 weeks during the November/December holiday.
Will I receive a proof of my custom piece?
If you'd like one, definitely! Please indicate this on your order upon checkout. We will send you an image of your custom piece before we finalize the design and prep it for casting. Please allow an extra week to delivery time for this option. If you opt for a proof, we wait 7 days for a reply before continuing production and shipping your item.
Are custom items final sale?
Yes, they are. We do not offer returns or exchanges on custom made items.
For custom brass or sterling silver rings, there is a $15 fee for sizing up 1 full size or down 1 full size. If gold plating needs to be re-applied after re-sizing, there is a $30 re-plating fee.
For solid 10KT or 14KT gold rings, there is a $20 re-sizing fee for sizing up 1 full size or down 1 full size in addition to any extra metal costs that occur (if more metal needs to be added).
If a new sizing is needed in excess of 1 size up or down, we would need to make a new ring in which a 50% of full retail value fee would apply. Additionally, gold rings incur an additional $75 re-melting fee. If for any reason, a custom item is cancelled after a wax is made, there is a $50 wax carving fee. If the ring was already cast in metal, no returns are possible.
How long will it take my order to ship?
All of our pieces are handmade - please allow 5-10 days for items to be cast and prepped for shipping. Our estimated shipping times are in addition to the production time and is determined by the shipping method selected at checkout.
How do you ship?
We offer first class and priority shipping through USPS. We also ship internationally. All packages are shipped in a durable padded mailer. Please allow an addition 1-2 weeks for international deliveries.
I want to gift a SNASH ring - what if it doesn't fit?
No problem! We offer one free sizing swap for every ring we sell, as long as the new requested size is in stock! If it's a size not in stock, not a problem - we can custom make you a new size for a small $15 re-casting fee. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure you get a piece that fits perfectly! Please reach out within 14 days of delivery. Free sizing does not apply to purchases that are in our "LAST CHANCE SALE" section or purchases made through our wholesale shops - please reach out to them directly with any sizing concerns. All custom nameplate rings incur a $20 resizing fee and additionally, any gold/rose/silver plating that needs to be re-added after resizing incurs an additional $20 fee.
Do you gift wrap?
Yes! Our basic packaging is kinda the best - not only does your ring automatically come encased in a small padded gem case, but we also add our branded black and gold sparkly box and free stickers. Want to spice up your wrapping? No prob - you can add a variety of wrappings, package additions (such as our SNASH PACK WITH TONS OF ADDITIONAL GOODIES!) and a variety of fun boxes for a small additional fee.
