By UK law any silver items i.e. sterling silver bangles, silver necklaces for women, silver torque collars, fine silver etc. that weighs over 7.78 grams MUST be hallmarked. We are registered with the Assay Office in London, England and every piece of our jewellery over 7.78 grams has our 'sponsor' mark as well as the Assay Office mark and a mark to confirm the silver content. These marks are 925 for sterling and 999 for fine silver. This gives reassurance that what you are buying is indeed genuine silver. If you are purchasing something under 7.78 grams we can arrange hallmarking at your request but please note this will incur extra cost & will take longer to process.
We are often asked, 'what is the best way to keep silver from tarnishing' or for info on the best way 'to keep silver shiny'. Tarnish is something that will happen to silver occasionally but it is easily removed with a quick rub of a polishing cloth. You can purchase our polishing cloth here which will help you keep your jewellery shiny and tarnish free.

Custom and personalised orders
All our pieces can be customized to your personal preferences. If you would like any piece engraved with a personal name, inscription, date, etc, you can add this to your order on any of our jewellery. We can engrave with any font you choose or even copy your own handwriting for a truly bespoke personalised gift. As you would expect, all our engraving is done by hand using traditional techniques right here in the heart of London's jewellery quarter.
If you need any help with our personalization services, just send us a message with what you would like and we will make it happen!
Please allow an additional week for any personalization.
Personalised jewellery cannot be exchanged and is not valid for refunds.
Sizing details for bangles
The collection of sterling silver bangles for women, men and children to fit all wrist sizes at Mon Bijoux is extensive so it's definitely in your interest to know how to buy the right size for yourself or as a gift to somebody else.
Most of our bangles will be for a standard wrist size which will fit 95% of wrists. Bangles with a clasp opening will go on sideways and fit in a nice oval shape on the wrist. This will be a more comfortable fit than a slide on bangle and the hand size will have no bearing.
We also offer tiny bangles for children or ladies with very small wrists, small silver bangles for teenagers and dainty wrists as well as large silver bracelets and extra large wrist sizes for men or ladies with larger than average wrist sizes. If you are not sure about the sizing, just let us know and we can help to find the perfect bangle for your wrist size. More information on bangle sizing with specific wrist measurements can be found on our bangle sizing guide by clicking here.

Can you put cremation ashes in a locket?
Yes, this is one of the main reasons people buy our amazing silver and glass lockets and small silver urns. It's a very thoughtful way to remember a dear departed loved one. Our silver lockets and urn necklaces are the perfect way to preserve the last remains from a dear departed loved one and wear them close to your heart for eternity.
What are necklaces called that hold ashes?
Ashes are held inside lockets or urns (and with a chain, it's a locket necklace or a cremation urn necklace). We sell an amazing collection of handcrafted cremation necklaces in the form of silver lockets and urns that do the job beautifully. Just read through our reviews. They are also perfect to have engraved to make the item even more special and memorable. An cremation urn necklace or a locket necklace is the perfect gift to consider to somebody who may have just lost somebody close.
Is it weird to wear ashes in a necklace?
In a word, no! It's about capturing and retaining a piece of our lost loved one and having them near at all times. This way, you can take the departed loved one on holiday with you to a place that they maybe never got to visit. Maybe the round the world trip that was always considered but never had a chance to do. To do this, you'll only need a very small amount of ashes to make one of our lockets into a fabulous keepsake necklace.
