How do I find my ring size?

Boh Runga Jewellery uses UK ring sizing. See the chart below for US ring size conversions. 

To find what size you need, simply measure the internal diameter (one side to other side) of a ring that you already own and match it to the chart below. Alternatively, if you are in Auckland, pop by our Ponsonby Bohtique and we can size your finger for you.

Rings are able to be custom sized to fit you perfectly for a fee. For all custom size enquiries or if you need help finding your ring size, please email hello@bohrunga.com

I’ve lost one of my earrings! Can I purchase a single earring?

Earrings can get lost from time to time, and we know how annoying that can be! You can purchase individual earrings by emailing hello@bohrunga or if you pop by our Ponsonby Bohtique.

Please note some earrings must be a mirrored pair and metal colour can change over time, so this service is not always available.


Help! My piece has broken, can I get it repaired?

Oh no! We’re sorry to hear that your piece has broken, but we can help you get it fixed!*

There’s a few things that we need to know about your piece before it gets repaired. This will help speed up our repairs process;

• How old is your piece and do you have proof of purchase if it is less than 12 months old?
• Where did you purchase it?
• How and when did it break?

Please email us at repairs@bohrunga.com for all repair enquiries with the answers to the questions above and a photo of the item. 

All Boh Runga Jewellery has a 12 month manufacturing warranty. Our manufacturing warranty does not include normal wear and tear or any accidental or non-accidental damage.

*Our repairs service is only available for Boh Runga Jewellery pieces.

What is rhodium plating?

All of our sterling silver jewellery is rhodium plated. Rhodium is one of the rarest and most expensive precious metals. When sterling silver jewellery is rhodium plated it helps to prevent tarnishing, gives the jewellery a high shine finish and makes it more resistant to scratching. Sterling silver is a delicate metal and it will age and tarnish over time, but plating with rhodium gives your piece a much longer life. Please see our product care page for how to care for our silver jewellery.


Why are some yellow gold items different colours?

Gold is a yellow metallic element, but in its pure form (24CT)  it’s too soft to be used in jewellery. It therefore needs to be “alloyed” (mixed) with other metals to provide the best combination of strength, appearance and resistance to tarnishing.

Typically, 9CT gold will be made of 37.5% gold, 42.5% silver and 20% copper, but like any recipe this can vary slightly depending on who is making it. The gold component always stays consistent, but you find variation in the silver and copper use which accounts for the difference in intensity of ‘yellow’ colour in 9CT gold.


Why has my chain stretched?

The links in the chains can stretch over time for various reasons. Pulling the pendant along the chain as you are wearing it is the most common way that the links can stretch. Wearing the pendant as you sleep can also stretch your chain.

As the chain stretches the links become weak and more susceptible to breaking. If your chain has significantly stretched and you’re worried about the strength of the links, get in touch with us at repairs@bohrunga and we can help you with a chain replacement.

How do I exchange my order?

Do you have to care for rose gold differently to yellow gold?

Rose gold is alloyed with copper which is what gives it that beautiful pink tone. Due to the way copper oxidises over time, rose gold may require more regular polishing than yellow gold.
