Turnaround & Shipping
Turnaround / Fabrication Time
Current turnaround time for made-to-order item is 3 to 4 weeks as we deal with Covid19 related shipping delays from material suppliers and slower courier shipping times for international orders.
Made-to-order items take up to 4 weeks before they’re ready and shipped out as it involves working in wax/resin, casting metal, setting stones, polishing and other processes to finish your piece. I’ll do my best to make and ship out items sooner without rushing.
Note: Custom design orders (items not listed, bespoke designs or those requiring design customization) will take an additional week or two as it will involve designing, prototyping in wax and iterations to get the final piece right. You will be updated throughout the process.
Rush Orders :If you require a rush order or need an item delivered by a certain date, please inquire with me first before placing your order. I do accommodate rush order requests if possible. However, there may be additional charges depending on your chosen design and requested turnaround time in order to cover for rush shipment fees from stone/material suppliers or for overtime labor.
Ready-made items are shipped out within 1 to 3 business days after payment is received in full.
All items are shipped in a beautiful gift box, insured, with a tracking number and require signature upon delivery. The default shipping method for majority of packages is through Canada Post Xpress. You have the option to upgrade shipping and select a faster method on the jewelry item’s page. Overnight shipping and shipping with FedEx is an option as well. If you have any questions regarding shipping method or cost, please contact me.

***IMPORTANT*** Please double check that your shipping address has been entered correctly. For security purposes, I can only ship to PayPal verified addresses or credit card billing addresses. If you prefer your ring shipped to a different address, please add that address to your Paypal account and select it as your shipping address before making your payment.
For customs purposes, every international package will be sent with a packing slip outlining the price/value of the item and the shipping address. The package will also be marked ‘Custom Fashion Accessory. Handmade in Canada – Not for resale.’ I cannot mark the package as ‘GIFT’ or lower the value of the item as it is against the law, considered mail fraud and could risk having the package confiscated.
International customers are responsible for any applicable custom fees, processing fees and VAT taxes that may be charged by your country. For USA customers: American customers don't have to pay any custom fees since handmade jewelry is exempt from custom taxes under the new USMCA (previously NAFTA) agreement.
