Our jewelry is handmade here in New York. We make each order as they come in, and in the order that they are received. Given the handmade nature and the high volume of orders we receive, our turnaround time is estimated at 7-10 business days. Please remember that business days do not include weekends. During conference times mainly March-April and July-August, we tend to have longer turnaround as we vend at conventions.
The Short Version:
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, we can't accept returns or exchanges for:
Custom or personalized orders
Engraved items may not be returned unless there is a mistake on our part.
All prices are in US dollars. They are subject to any applicable taxes according to state and local laws. Item Availability, prices and delivery rates are subject to change.
From time to time, there may be errors in the prices, descriptions or images of certain merchandise, and we reserve the right to restrict orders of those items.
Please use images as reference points. While we do our best to show beads as accurately as possible, there may be subtle variations in from to bead. Remember that gemstones are naturally occurring and bead cuts highlight them as best as possible. Bead colors may vary slightly due to monitor settings.
You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
If you need to return an item, please Contact Us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order.
