FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
What’s up with all the boomerangs?
The boomerang is a symbol I love. It was chosen as the image for A Nice World as a meaningful, metaphoric reminder that everything we give, always comes back.
Who founded A Nice World and who creates Nice jewelry?
Learn more about A Nice World and the founder in the About page.
How do the donations from A Nice World work?
A minimum of 33% of profit is donated from every purchase. Often, the donation is 50% and there are always special “100% profit donated” Nice fundraiser jewelry designs on the site. Members of the VNP (Very Nice Person) list learn about special sales, advanced notice of 100% donated days, surprise bonus gifts and opportunities to direct where the funds from their purchase are donated.
Who are the beneficiaries of the 33%-100% donations?
Currently I’m over the moon with inspiration and appreciation for Operation Underground Railroad (www.ourrescue.org). All donations from boomerang and non-cause-aligned designs currently fuel this bright light.
Some Nice jewelry is steadily aligned with a cause. For example, Braille jewelry purchases are donated to help prevent blindness. For every Joy Key purchased, children’s libraries receive a brand new copy of a “Sara Learns the Secret” book, written by Abraham-Hicks. Buyers of the Joy Keys are encouraged to share an uplifting inscription which I hide, tucked into the margin for the kids to find.
Watch for upcoming blogs about designs, beneficiaries and special stories of the people making it all come to life. As more products are added to A Nice World, we’ll reach out to VNPs for special pre-release offers, discounts and contests.
What type of materials are used to make jewelry from A Nice World?
Nice jewelry is generally available in sterling silver and/or 14 karat gold vermeil-quality plated. Some Nice designs are offered in golden bronze for a price point that makes giving fun and easy.
What if I see a design on social media that’s not listed for sale at A Nice World?
Some Nice fundraiser jewelry designs are available exclusively through the beneficiary, through custom fundraiser jewelry in their gift shops, via online stores or as exclusive membership items and donor gifts. Other Nice designs may still be available, just email me to chat.

After lots of wear you might expect to need a simple reshaping of a ring band which should be easy for any local jewelry store to do for you, complimentary.
Repairs to rings with stones can risk compromising the setting and may not always be possible or recommended.
Do all Nice pieces look exactly the same as the photos?
Our jewelry is hand sculpted and cast with care for a uniform, what-you-see-is-what-you-get look. Stones and settings may vary slightly, making them unique to you.
What if the ring doesn’t fit or A Nice World doesn’t offer my size?
Please remember to check your ring size before ordering. If a perfect fit for a particular finger is required, most Nice rings can be resized for an additional fee, which adds a couple more weeks to the timeline.
