Questions & Answers
Stones and fabrication
What makes your jewellery by SABHA so unique.
- What is the origin of the gemstones?
SABHA selects the gemstones themselves in Jaipur from the gemstone cutters they trust. Gemstones usually come from within the earth and are found in many different places around the world. Tradition has it that the raw gemstones come to Jaipur from all over the world to be cut and then processed back across the planet as sparkling jewels.
- Why does my gemstone look different from the pictures online?
The product image shown on our website corresponds as closely as possible to the product shipped. Gemstones are natural products which show variations, your gemstone is unique. Therefore, details such as the colour of the gemstone may vary slightly. This contributes significantly to the fact that your piece of jewellery is unique and special.
- Who are the people behind my jewellery?
SABHA's collections bear witness to the high quality and naturalness of the stones, which are selected by trusted local dealers. SABHA is particularly concerned to stand up for humane working conditions and for resource-saving and transparent processes in the production of its jewellery. This claim is constantly monitored, especially through the personal relationship with the production sites in Jaipur.

- Can I have my jewellery engraved?

After consultation with SABHA's team regarding your engraving, we will pass your piece of jewellery on to the engraver.
- Ring too small or too big, what can be done?
If you make a mistake, you can exchange the ring for another size. See under exchange. Almost all of our rings can be customised to one size, please let us know which ring it is so that we can give you more information.
- How can I determine the ring size?
Take a ring that fits you. Place the ring on a ruler and measure the largest inner diameter. Round up to the nearest whole millimetre. The diameter is the measurement that indicates the inside width of the ring. If your ring is not circular, measure the shortest inside distance.

How to enjoy your jewellery for a long time.
- How do I store my jewellery?
If you don't wear your jewellery regularly, keep it in a safe and secure place. A jewellery box in your bedroom is a good place. Note, however, that even this storage will not protect the silver from natural oxidation.
- How do I care for my jewellery?
Brushed jewellery is best cleaned with a very mild liquid soap. A chemical silver bath can also be used. Engraved jewellery should be cleaned with a jewellery polishing cloth. Soap may be used, but not a chemical bath. Electroplated surfaces, if brushed, may only be gently washed with soap, if polished, use a jewellery polishing cloth to gently care for the surface. The chemical bath can also be used for this purpose. Always with caution, as the gold plating is a thin layer. Caution Gemstones often do not like chemicals, find out about your gemstone.
- My jewellery is tarnished, what can I do?
It is normal for sterling silver to tarnish over time. This tarnishing is accelerated by contact with, for example, perfume, salty air, sulphur, skin creams, hairspray and chlorine, as well as by the acidic pH values of the skin. The degree to which the jewellery tarnishes (oxidises) depends on the skin type and the care habits of the wearer. Tarnishing is therefore not a manufacturing defect.
Depending on the surface condition, your jewellery needs different care.
