What is the color and clarity of your diamonds?

Are your stones conflict-free?
Yes, we only use 100% conflict free diamonds from suppliers and manufactures that are certified by the [Responsible Jewelry Council](https://www.responsiblejewellery.com/ "Setting Sustainable Jewellery Standards • Responsible Jewellery Council").
Are your stones natural?
Yes, all of the stones that we use are natural stones. We do not use synthetic material or laboratory grown stones.
Where do you source your gemstones and diamonds?
We source our gemstones from a variety of locations depending on the design of the piece. We hand select many stones just steps from the office, custom carve others in downtown Los Angeles, and source stones throughout the U.S. and overseas. We purchase our gemstones and diamonds from RJC certified suppliers, and they are conflict free and ethically sourced.
Do you practice ethical manufacturing?
Every factory we use has been inspected by either the Responsible Jewelry Council or a member of The Last Line to ensure that the working conditions are safe, that the employees are treated ethically, and all employees are adults and compensated fairly.
Does your jewelry contain nickel?
We go to great lengths to work with vendors that only use 100% nickel free alloys to manufacture our products. To ensure this we employ random testing to be sure that our standards are being maintained. Given that, some of our vendors DO use nickel on other non-The Last Line projects, if you would like to order a pair, and they do not agree with your skin, we will happily accept an exchange on the item. Please note that the exchange must be within 7 days of receipt.
Sizing and Styling
How do I know which size huggie is right for me?
Please check the measurements on the product page for most accurate information. Here are some general tips: our tiny huggie is a good fit for a 3rd or 4th lobe piercing but will be too snug on most other piercings. Our small huggie will fit many 2nd and 3rd piercings and may be quite snug on a first piercing or cartilage piercing. Our medium huggie is a good size for a comfortable snug fit on many 1st piercings and cartilage or upper ear piercings. Our large huggie will fit most cartilage piercings and is a great option for first piercings if you are looking for a traditional fit.
