Your questions answered
Questions about sizing, material or simply getting started? Try visiting the guide to the collections page for a wealth of lock knowledge. Each product page has its own specific info, we suggest looking there for questions around a specific product. Company and logistic questions can be found here!
How should I get started?
Choose a lock. Choose a chain. You can add to it later. The most important part is to choose a lock that you love. Our locks come in 4 colors of gold (yellow, white, green and rose) and platinum and in some cases sterling silver. All the locks are versatile and can be worn in myriad ways. Or your lock may work with pieces you already own—that's the best part.
Do you offer custom work or engraving?
Personalizing your piece is one of the special surprises of owning or giving our locks. Each lock has 6 sides to engrave on and we can do virtually any language or symbol you can dream up. Engraving ranges in price from $80 for a standard laser engraving. If you are interested in hand engraving, please email or call us.
Most pieces from the collection are engravable and it is indicated in the product. If you don't see a choice for engraving, please email or call us to determine if it is viable for your piece.
All our jewelry is handmade and hand finished by a team of craftspeople. It’s safe to say that no piece is exactly the same. The gemstones we work with are constantly evolving so if you don’t see a stone that you seek, email or call us. We’d love to help you.
Custom length chains, custom locks and engraving are final sale. That being said if we made a mistake, we want to know about it and fix it.
Our hours of operation.
Even though our website is open 24/7, we, the humans who run the website, work "normal business hours," meaning we are open Monday-Friday, 9AM-6PM. If you inquire about a product or a purchase over the weekend, we will absolutely respond but it will likely be on the following Monday morning. We will be in touch!
How should I clean and care for my Marla Aaron piece?
Your locks are designed to last forever and to be worn and take on the patina of best loved jewelry. If you miss your piece’s original lustre, we are happy to polish them to either a “satin” or gloss finish. Just call us. Pricing starts at $25.00.
For brass Cufflings, our preferred cleaner is ketchup – Heinz specifically. Simply wipe the ketchup on your piece and then wipe off with a “buffing” motion using a paper towel. Rinse with water and dry and you will see the shine. Well worn jewelry though does not need any polishing. So wear your jewels!
Store pearls in a cloth pouch (if you bought them from us or had them repaired by us you have one of our muslin sacks). And try not to get lotion or perfume on your pearls – it will destroy their lustre.
