THE THOUGHT OF INVESTING YOUR MONEY INTO SOMETHING SO PRECIOUS ONLINE CAN BE INTIMIDATING FOR MANY OF OUR CUSTOMERS.
UNDERSTANDING HOW THE PROCESS WORKS CAN BE HELPFUL.
Please note: all of our designs are custom made one of a kind pieces. As a general guideline, wait times can be 6-8 weeks from the time we receive your precious inclusions.
Depending on the ring size, the design you would like to have made, and if any unpredicted circumstances and delays should arise on our supply chains, this process could take longer. We prefer to make your piece perfect and take our time, not rush through the process to ‘get the job done’ so we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding with the steps we must complete to create your precious keepsake.

SEND YOUR INCLUSIONS

If you ordered a ring, we will post you a small, adjustable ring sizer. It looks like a little tape measure that slips over your finger. Once you received your ring sizer, please measure the size of the finger you will wear your ring on, and email us. If you’re not sure of the best size, you’re welcome to send us a photo of the sizer on your finger, and we will work it out for you. You don’t need to return the ring sizer.
Once we have received any inclusions and sizing information, your order will take approximately 6-8 weeks to finalise. Sometimes we send sneak peek photos before sending an order home. If you would prefer to keep your order a surprise until you receive, please let us know in the Notes at checkout when you order.
