FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We decided on the name as a combination of the term "Studio" to express the small, creative and handmade character of our operation, and the number "51" paying reference to the famous dossard number 51 which brought many professional cyclists good luck and victories.
We're not fans of shipping fees either and try to minimise charges (driven by weight and dimensions) by only using light, flat pouches to pack and present our goods, and flat protective bubble mailers for shipping. All items are made from recycled materials. Please find more details on shipping options here.
Frankly, this was the original idea when we started, but it's not that simple to achieve this. Currently we are using recycled base metals. While there might be some old bicycle parts in there, we are currently working on a project to launch a collection 100% made from recycled used bike frames and other parts. Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know when this capsule collection hits the road.
Yes we do. We offer a selection of necklace styles and lengths to choose from on the product pages, and you will receive your charm assembled with the necklace. We also offer all our necklaces separately for purchase, in case you can't decide or want to have more options to switch. Please contact us if you need help or advice.
Fabricated exclusively in Italy, this unique, lightweight material is made from cotton and wood pulp, making it a 100% hypoallergenic and biodegradable material. It's mainly used for eyewear frames but we love the material for creative jewelry making and are offering a range of different colours and designs. We cut our designs from different colour vintage sheets i.e. no item is the same and once it's gone, it's gone.
For the launch of the brand in June 2023 we introduced our collection of pendants and necklaces. We just added a full bracelet collection in September 2023, and a small earring collection is planned for early 2024. We are also working on more accessories. Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter.
As we're just starting to launch the brand, our distribution is limited to the online shop and a few local stores in Rhode Island. But we're working hard to get more listings and distribution, both in the USA as well as in key locations in Europe and around the World. Please contact us if you know a store you like to see Studio 51 jewelry sold. PS: we're also planning small pop-up shops on cycling events or races, and we look forward to seeing you there!

No we don't. Cycling is all about freedom and happiness, and being in harmony and peace with the world and people around you. We're not supporting any nations that do no recognise those values, and do not ship to those countries. Other than that, we pretty much ship all around to the World.
Unless otherwise stated under product features, we do electroplate our brass charms with a baked satin lacquer to add durability and longevity to the finish. Therefore you may keep them on while showering or biking in rain but you should dry and polish afterwards with a soft tissue. As with all 14k gold and silver plated jewelry, we recommend to avoid extensive and regular water exposure as this might shorten the lifespan of the item.

We are all about recycling and keeping waste to a minimum, and do not offer extra gift boxes or wrapping. However we believe that our packaging makes for a great "unboxing" experience, plus we always include a few cycling stickers and postcards.
Yes we offer this as a special custom option on the back side all our charms and pendants. Please contact us before you check out to make sure your message is executable and to get a cost estimate.
This depends where you live, but for the European Union there are import taxes you might have to pay upon delivery of the package. This is something not in our control and differs from country to country. You might want to check with your local tax and custom authorities.
At the moment we don't, but plan is to open an office in Berlin, Germany in late 2023 to offer faster shipping and avoid extra import duty payments for our customers in the the EU. Stay tuned.
That's a rhetorical question :-)
