Which design do you have?
Scallop, Heart, or Butterfly
To attach a ring to your Emily C Scallop, Heart, or Butterfly necklace, simply slide the ring between the two "prongs" at the top of the pendant. Keep sliding the ring around the pendant, bending and pulling the chain as you go. Once the ring has traveled all the way around the pendant, release the ring, and you're done!
To remove your ring, simply reverse the steps.
Want to attach two rings? There are two ways to go about it:
If you want to attach two rings at the same time, simply hold them together and thread them onto the pendant as though they were one wide ring.
If you want to attach a second ring when you already have one ring on your necklace, slide the ring that is already attached up onto the chain, as shown in the illustration above. This gets this ring "out of the way." Then proceed to add the new ring just as you would normally, following the usual steps. When the new ring is on, you can release the second ring. Both will fall securely into place.
To attach a ring to your Emily C Wishbone necklace, simply thread one end of the wishbone through your ring (or rings). Slide your ring all the way up and then down the other side of the wishbone, bending and gently pulling the chain as you go. Once the ring has traveled all the way around the pendant, and is touching only the chain, release the ring and you're done!
Frequently Asked Questions
"How secure is my ring, really?"
Your ring is completely secure on your Emily C necklace in virtually every situation. It will not fall off. Although it seems like magic, the way it works is really no secret. When you are wearing your necklace, the chain and the pendant create an hourglass shape. Your ring rests securely at the narrowest part of that hourglass shape. Your ring cannot come off because the widest part of the pendant is wider than your ring. Meanwhile, gravity pulls the pendant downward, making the chain taut around your neck and creating the upper part of the hourglass.
In those rare situations when the chain won't be more or less taut around your neck, such as during swimming or surfing, we don't recommend wearing your ring on your necklace. Also, treat your chain as you'd treat the chain on any diamond necklace; avoid situations where it could be yanked, damaged, or broken.
"Can I use another chain with my Emily C necklace?"
Absolutely. The chain included with your necklace has been specially selected for its strength and flexibility; you may find that some chains are not flexible enough to work. However, if you have another chain you'd like to use, and it's flexible enough, feel free to use it instead!
"I just got my Emily C necklace, and I have a hard time putting my ring on and removing it. Any advice?"
Yes- do it in front of a mirror the first few times! It's a simple movement, but when you're trying to do it without seeing what you're doing, it can feel a little awkward. Once you practice a few times with the help of a mirror, the motion of taking it on and off will become quick and effortless.
