Most of my jewelry is ready to ship. If you are purchasing something as is, your order will almost always go out within 24 hours. However, if you require a different length, size, or finish, that will require time. Oxidizing (Blackening the Silver Finish) usually only requires a few hours to a day. Removing oxidation requires a couple of days. Rosary rings require 6 to 10 days.
I usually have this information at the top of my listings. Please keep in mind these are processing times, not shipping times. If you choose to ship via Priority Mail, it will not speed up the processing time. It will only speed up the shipping/delivery time.
If you are unsure of your ring size, you can go to most mall jewelry stores, Walmarts or Targets to get your finger sized. I also sell ring sizers for $2 in my shop that can be used to measure all your fingers and toes. Please keep in mind, the thicker the ring, the larger the size needed. If you normally wear a size 7 in a thin ring, you will need a 7.25 or 7.5 in a wide band ring. If you want a Necklace or Bracelet resized, and the option isn't available in my listing, send me a message and I will accommodate you if I can.
What if I ordered the Wrong Size?
This isn't a big deal and it happens a lot. If it is an all metal ring, it will be an easy fix. I will ask that you get your finger measured or will send you a ring sizer to confirm. When you send the ring back (With Delivery Confirmation), I will exchange it for the proper size and return it to you as soon as possible. I only ask you to pay for the shipping back to you.
If it's a necklace or bracelet, I can usually extend it. I don't charge for this, but do ask that you pay for the cost of shipping it back to you. Let me know you want it lengthened or shortened. I will give you an address to use for the return/exchange. please include delivery confirmation on your package when you return it to me.
Gift wrapping and packaging
I box and wrap all jewelry in a pretty blue paper with a handmade bow unless you ask me not to. Most brides don't want their bridal orders wrapped because they wish to use their own paper.
Please don't wear any jewelry while cleaning, using chemicals, bathing or swimming esp with opals, turquoise, leather, oxidized jewelry (blackened silver) and gemstone settings.
Most jewelry (Not Oxidized or Leather) can be cleaned using a liquid jewelry cleaner or gentle dish soap like Dawn in lukewarm water. Just swish your jewelry around a bit, rinse with water, and then allow to air dry.
Most rings can be cleaned with a polishing cloth, especially solid gold, 14k gold fill, fine silver and sterling. Do not wipe or rub Gold Vermeil as the Gold Plating will come off and reveal the Sterling underneath.
Don't use Sonic Cleaners unless it is for Metal Jewelry that doesn't contain any stones.
