Do you offer international shipments?
Yes! For most of our smaller, lighter items, our international shipping fee is a flat $16.97. Heavier items and/or larger orders will require more. Please note that in some rare cases, international orders may incur additional 'import' fees and/or taxes. When this happens, it will be the customer's responsibility to pay for any such costs.
How long does shipping take for orders inside of the US?
When items are in stock, we typically ship your order within 24 hours, and arrive within 2-5 days at the most. However many items are considered custom orders which may take us an additional week or so to get in. Each of our individual product pages should offer specific estimated times for shipping and delivery times.
How long does shipping take for international orders?
With the Covid 19 situation, international shipments using the 'postal' option can take far longer than usual (up to 60-90 days in some rare cases). Because of this, we now offer DHL and UPS as options for international orders, which offers far quicker shipping options.
I need a different size, what can I do?
No problem! We offer a 30-day window for size exchanges. As long as your item is still in new condition, just mail it back to us and include a short note explaining what size you would prefer and we will send you a replacement as soon as we receive your return. Size exchanges on international orders will require an additional shipping fee of $15, in which we can email you a payment link.
I am not happy with what I received, what can I do?
If you're not happy, we're not happy! We offer a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee. Whether it is offering you something different as a replacement or a full refund (minus shipping fees), we will do our best to make it right!
Are your precious metals solid or plated?
Solid! With the exception of items that are hollow on the back or inside to save on weight and cost, ALL of our brass, bronze, sterling silver and gold items are all solid throughout and never plated.
Can I get this jewelry wet?
Stainless steel, brass, bronze, sterling silver and 14k gold items ...Yes. However, pewter, alloy and certainly items made out of (non-stainless) steel can eventually rust / patina or become brittle if they get wet.
Can Bronze or 925 Sterling Silver make my skin turn green?
Yes. Some people may occasionally experience a green skin effect from bronze and 925 sterling silver. Skin turning green is caused by copper. Bronze includes a mixture of copper and 925 sterling silver stands for 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% being a mixture of other metals, including copper.
Copper is an essential mineral the body needs. If your body is low in copper, and you are wearing something that has copper in it, the body will send out enzymes to metabolize the copper, turning it into cupric oxide, which is green, and then absorbing it through the skin. It is natural and actually very healthy. This is also the origin of the old wives tale about wearing a copper bracelet to treat arthritis.
However, we understand the green effect can be unsightly. First, cleaning the item will help a lot, especially right before you wear it. An easy way to clean it is with a rag and toothpaste. Cleaning it after you take it off helps too. Another trick is to coat the inside of the item with clear nail polish. This works well, but does wear off and will have to be redone periodically.
We have had many customers who have had this reaction stop within a few days - presumably because they got enough copper into their system. We wear our own jewelry item all the time and we too periodically get the green effect on occasion.
If you are still unhappy and your item is still in 'like new' condition, refer to our 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee.
