HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY JEWELRY TO BE SHIPPED?
Due to the handmade, made-to-order nature of my jewelry, orders usually take about 10 business days to process and produce, but production time typically increases during sales and holidays. Please keep in mind that I am a small business and create everything by hand, just for you! You will be notified via email when your order ships.
DO YOU OFFER RUSH SERVICES?
We do! Rush Service is for any customer who would like their order made faster than our regular turn-around time. With rush service, we will have your jewelry made within 2 business days vs 4-10 business days. The fee is $50 for one item, $10 for each additional piece. You can add it to your shopping cart. This does NOT include shipping time so please be sure to select EXPRESS shipping upon checkout.
To be fair to all our customers – we don’t allow any customer to ‘jump the queue’. Instead, if you need your order faster than normal, we actually work overtime hours to get it done.

HOW DO YOU PACKAGE JEWELRY?
Jewelry is shipped in jewelry boxes, wrapped in tissue paper. I attach a small plastic zip-lock bag for storing your jewelry to prevent tarnish. We do not ship an invoice or a receipt on domestic orders to save paper. The jewelry is sent in a bubble mailer small enough to fit in most mailboxes and through most mail slots.

I HAVE A METAL ALLERGY. IS YOUR JEWELRY HYPOALLERGENIC?
All the metals we use are hypoallergenic, nickel-free, and lead free.
WHAT IS GOLD FILLED?
Gold fill is created by bonding a thin layer of gold to a thicker core of brass, which itself is an alloy of copper and zinc. Typically, 14K gold (14 karats, the standard for jewelry) is used for the thin layer of gold. Read more about gold-filled from my blog post HERE
