When will my order ship?
Most of my jewelry is made to order and takes between 2-12 weeks, depending on the metal and gemstones used. All my ready to ship items will be processed within 3-5 working days once you place your order, the description will clearly state if the item is made to order or ready to ship. If you have any questions about my jewelry, your order or shipping times then please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Ring Sizing Policy
To initiate a ring sizing simply contact me and I will give you return shipping details and a time frame from when the ring arrives.
Each ring order comes with a free ring sizing band. This can be used to determine a correct size for a resizing or size your other fingers, or gift it to a friend! The sizing band is considered a wide band (3mm), consider a quarter size smaller for narrow band such as a 1.2mm stacking ring.
You are responsible for the cost of mailing the item back to me, however, I will cover the cost of mailing the exchange and or sized ring back to you. I will notify you when the item has arrived at my shop and I will follow up with a shipping notification once the exchange and or ring sizing is complete.
