FAQ

Production

ALT jewelry is made with pride in fair trade workshops in Cambodia, by artisans seeking a fair and dignified livelihood. We are honored to work with artisans who bravely shoulder the burden of history and carry their families towards greater wealth.

Base Metal

The base metal of each piece is made from spent bombshell casing, remnants of the Vietnam War which pulled Cambodia into its vortex. It is our intention that our jewelry serves as declarations of peace and personal strength, for both maker and wearer.

5-Year Guarantee and Nickel-Free

Our jewelry is plated with precious metals 2 microns in thickness*, which is 2-4x the usual thickness of similar jewelry designers – this means that our pieces do not tarnish easily. We also provide a 5-year re-plating guarantee, so you can wear and store your jewelry with complete ease of mind.

Our jewelry is also nickel-free*.

(* For all pieces except our gunmetal variations, which employ a different plating technique and includes nickel.)

Size Guide

We design our jewelry to be adjustable in size, so that they are as stackable and versatile as possible. It also means you can gift them to friends without having to spoil the surprise!

To resize, simply apply pressure inwards or outwards. The metal will flex with the pressure. Our pieces have never snapped under normal use, so feel free to adjust and readjust freely!

Jewelry Care

Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe your jewelry pieces to remove natural body oils and perspiration. If your jewelry comes into contact with water, it is recommended that you dry it with a soft cloth or tissue, as prolonged exposure to moisture can damage surfaces.

Try to minimize contact with chemicals like hair products, fragrances, pool water, and sea water.

If you don’t intend to use your ALT jewelry for an extended period, store them in a cool, dry place, such as a jewelry box or case with the lid closed. While our thick plating of precious metal will keep them safe from tarnishing for a very long time, this is our recommended best practice.

ALT The Collection ships via registered air mail, completely free-of-charge. You may also choose express shipping options at a separate charge.

Generally, orders are shipped out within 1 business day of payment. After shipment, your order should arrive within 2-7 business days (up to 14 days if you live outside of Asia). If you choose expedited shipping, you can expect your order to arrive within 1-3 business days (up to 7 days if you live outside of Asia).

For any method of shipping you choose, you will be informed of your tracking number once that becomes available, so you can have peace of mind.

Do note that sometimes customs clearance processes result in a slight delay.

Duties and Taxes

Customs duties and taxes, if any, are to be borne by you.
