Charlotte Ring

To remove a centerpiece from your ring, insert your tool's two prongs into the corresponding holes on either side of the ring's lock and squeeze, releasing the spring-loaded pin as well as the centerpiece. Gently wiggle the centerpiece to help release it.

 

To insert a centerpiece in your ring, combine it with layers and spacers, as desired, and place the pin through the centerpiece's bottom holes. (The pin is always inserted last.)

 

Align this combination of pieces over the indentations in the ring's lock and firmly press it in. If it resists locking into the mechanism, slide a side of the tool into one side of the mechanism to guide and depress that end of the pin into its hole; the other end will smoothly engage as well.

 

Press firmly on the centerpiece (never on the layers) to make sure everything has locked in. You can see the pin's ends locked into the holes on each side of the ring. You can also gently pull the centerpiece upward to be certain everything improperly secured.

 

 

TIPIT Ring

To remove a centerpiece from your tipit ring, insert your tool's two prongs into the corresponding holes on either side of the top of the ring and squeeze, releasing the spring-loaded pin as well as the centerpiece. At the same time, gently pull the centerpiece out, toward the bottom of the ring.

 

To insert a centerpiece in your ring, place the pin through the centerpiece's holes. Bring the centerpiece into the ring in an upward motion from the ring's bottom, guiding it toward the top of the ring.

 

The tool isn't needed for insertion. There's an indentation on either side of the ring's interior, toward its top, to help guide the centerpiece into the ring's holes.

 

Check that the centerpiece is locked in securely by gently wiggling it back and forth; you should also have heard the pin click as it successfully locked in.

 

To unlock your necklace, press the ends together: One acts as a lock, the other as its key. Hold one end steadily with your left hand as your right hand twists the other end toward you with a gentle turn—just a 1/8-1/4 motion will unlock the ends.

 

To lock your necklace, bring the ends together. One end is a lock, the other the key. Without pushing or pressing, hold the lock steady in your left hand as turn the key toward you—about a 1/4 turn. The key will slip into the lock, then allow the key to turn back away from you — about ¼ turn. Resist any tendency to twist both ends (or hands): You might unlock the necklace and have to re-lock it.

 

When properly locked, there should be a tiny gap between the necklace ends. Make certain the locking mechanism is properly engaged by pulling both ends. The necklace can't unlock and open once its ends are correctly secured.

 

Practice locking and unlocking your necklace a few times before trying to put it on.

 

Keep your necklace in mint condition by storing it unclosed, intertwining its ends several times.

«Touch» Ring

Your new ring doesn't require a tool or a pin to securely lock your centerpieces and layers in place: All you need are your fingers!

 

To lock a combination of pieces into your ring, simply place the fingernail of your index finger or thumb (whichever is more comfortable for you) against the edge of the flat “button” located on the inside of the ring. Then gently push it inward and downward.

 

While you hold the button in place, insert your centerpiece combination into the top of the ring. Release the button and listen for the click that indicates you've successfully locked your pieces in. Gently twist and pull up on the centerpiece to make sure it's truly secured.

 

To release your centerpiece combination, use the same process of pushing the button inward and downward, then gently lift out your pieces.

Charlotte Pendant

To remove a centerpiece from your pendant, insert your tool's two prongs into the corresponding holes on either side of the pendant's lock and squeeze, releasing the spring-loaded pin as well as the centerpiece. Gently wiggle the centerpiece to help release it.

 

To insert a centerpiece in your pendant, combine it with layers and spacers, as desired, and place the pin through the centerpiece's bottom holes. (The pin is always inserted last.)

 

Align this combination of pieces over the indentations in the pendant's lock and firmly press it in. If it resists locking into the mechanism, slide a side of the tool into one side of the mechanism to guide and depress that end of the pin into its hole; the other end will smoothly engage as well.

 

Press firmly on the centerpiece (never on the layers) to make sure everything has locked in. You can see the pin's ends locked into the holes on each side of the pendant. You can also gently pull the centerpiece upward to be certain everything is properly secured.
