Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions 

1. What's the difference between gauge and bangle size? 

Bangle size is measured in inches and is the circumference of a bangle. Each person is a different bangle size similar to shoe size.  Gauge is the thickness of the wire. It is more of a preference. We offer three different types of gauges: 14, 12, and 10. As the gauge number gets smaller the wire gets thicker. 14 gauge is the thinnest and 10 gauge is the thickest. 

2. How do I measure my bangle size? 

3. Can I make custom orders? 

Yes! We love making custom orders and usually do them with bangles. Feel free to contact us through DM with Instagram @oceancreations so we can chat about custom order options. Also, if you see anything posted on our Instagram account but not on the website it is available for sale. Just DM us. 

4. What is the best way to take care of my OC pieces? 

Majority of our jewelry is made out of 14k gold fill or sterling silver. It is okay to wear our pieces in water, although it is best to avoid it as much as possible. If I ever take my jewelry in the ocean I personally like to wash my pieces once I get home with fresh water and soap. This avoids salt from sitting on the pieces and affecting the jewelry over time. We also recommend using jewelry polishing pads to shine your jewelry about once a month.  

5. Can I return my purchase?

We do not offer returns or exchanges although if there is a problem feel free to contact me through DM on Instagram @oceancreations and we can talk about the situation.
