I now offer flat rate shipping on all domestic orders. Packages mailed to addresses within the United States, its territories or APO/FPO addresses, will ship via USPS First Class with Tracking. All orders ship from Des Moines, Iowa. Iowa residents are subject to 6% Iowa State sales tax. Orders usually arrive in 3-5 days. Priority shipping is available upon request, within the United States. Priority mail is not a guarantee that your order will arrive sooner than with standard mail, but can help avoid delays during high volume seasons, such as Christmas.
I will mail your jewelry within three days of receiving your order. International orders may take up to two more days to process. Custom orders and Made-to-Order items will require some additional time. For more about custom orders, please refer to my Policies page.
Packages mailed outside the U.S. will ship via USPS First Class International. I can send packages to all countries that will ship via USPS International. Unfortunately, tracking is not available outside the U.S., but I can provide your customs number as a way to reference your order. You will be responsible to pay any duties, taxes, or custom fees that apply within your country. International orders usually arrive in 10-14 days.
I will ship your jewelry in a small gift box or satin jewelry pouch. The packaging I have chosen for you is intended to be suitable for gift giving, or to store for your own use. Any plastic bubble wrap I have used in packaging, is repurposed from other packages I have received. I do my best to reuse, recycle, and re-purpose as much packaging as I am able, and hope you will do the same. I package each item snugly and securely to help it arrive safely to you.
I hope this answers most of the questions that you may have. Just let me know if you have questions or concerns about your order's progress or condition.
