If you are in a rush to receive an order, please send me a message (include the exact date you needed the item) & we will do my best to finish and make it happen on your due date.

❖ WE ARE HAPPY TO SHIP WORLD WIDE! ❖

❧ PLEASE BE ADVISE: Transit times can vary GREATLY on all International Shipments.
Occasionally packages can be SUBSTANTIALLY DELAYED, up to 45 days, but the usual transit time is 7-14 days.

When shipping outside the country, packages occasionally get held up at customs. We do NOT have any control over this, it's in the hands of your country's customs officials. Please understand you are taking a risk in buying internationally and that your package may be delayed for up to 7 weeks. This is not common, but it happens occasionally. Once we've shipped your package, we can't do anything with it once it's in the hands of customs officials and your country's postal service...and sometimes they unfortunately take their sweet time!


❧ CUSTOMS / DUTY CHARGES
We have NO control over your country's customs officials. Some countries will charge duty for international packages and others will not, and all at different rates! Most packages go through without any charges, it is somewhat random, but please be advised that I have no control over how your country charges duty. These are NOT extra shipping charges. You are responsible for knowing your country’s customs and duty policies.

❧ TRACKING YOUR INTERNATIONAL ORDER
If your order was shipped with USPS, the tracking numbers for International shipments only show where they are in the USA, and once they ship overseas, the tracking number is not updated. Once your package is outside the US, there will be no update until it’s been delivered. The tracking will show your package being “frozen” at a major US port (like Los Angeles), but this doesn’t mean your package isn’t moving, it’s just that it’s moving overseas.

❧ In my fine jewelry line, all diamonds used on my pieces are G-H color VS-SI clarity and I use 14K & 18K gold and you get to choose the color you wanted (white, yellow or rose gold color).

~Gold Facts
☙24 Karat Gold 
In its purest form, the metal is comprised of 100% gold with virtually no alloy metals.
Because it is extremely soft and pliable, this is not recommended for use in fine jewelry.
 ☙18 Karat Gold
This alloy consists of 75% gold and 25% alloy metals. 18 karat gold has been found to be the perfect balance between gold purity and strength.
 ☙14 Karat Gold
The most popular for jewelry is 14 karat gold which is 58.3% pure gold; the remainder is comprised of alloy metal.
~Origin of the Diamond 4Cs
Every diamond is a miracle of time and place and chance. Like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike. Until the middle of the twentieth century, there was no agreed-upon standard by which diamonds could be judged. GIA created the first, and now globally accepted standard for describing diamonds: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat Weight. Today, the 4Cs of Diamond Quality is the universal method for assessing the quality of any diamond, anywhere in the world.
The creation of the Diamond 4Cs meant two very important things: diamond quality could be communicated in a universal language, and diamond customers could now know exactly what they were about to purchase.

❧ Gold-filled is a reasonably priced, quality alternative to solid gold.

❧ 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GOLD-FILLED

1. Why can’t you stock more of your cast charms in gold-filled?
Gold-filled cannot be cast. This is a major limitation in the types of products that can be manufactured in gold-filled. Products must be made from sheet, tube or wire that retain the layers constructed in brass and gold. Casting by definition is melting the metal material which would alloy the layers into one big melted mess.

2. Why don’t you stock gold-filled solder?
First, there is no such thing as gold-filled solder. Second, we do not recommend soldering gold-filled without specific equipment and specialized training on gold-filled soldering. If you attempt to solder gold-filled with a torch and normal gold or brazing solder you will burn off the gold surface layer of gold-filled and leave a dark brass solder joint that will be markedly different than the neighboring gold. The exposed brass joint will quickly tarnish to black and be even more distinct. The only way to repair it at this point is to plate the entire item in gold to cover the joint and match color all over the piece. We do not recommend soldering gold-filled items. Nor do we recommend sanding gold-filled since you are removing just the gold portion of the product and decreasing the surface layer integrity.

3. I need the gold item XYZ…
OK, this one isn’t a question but it raises an important issue. Some jewelry designers will refer to gold-filled items as just “gold.” It is not gold and it is illegal to call gold-filled items gold, which implies they are a solid alloy with much higher pure gold content. Gold-filled is a unique material and must be clearly distinguished from solid gold by professionals in the industry. “Gold” is not an acceptable short hand and it can get you in legal trouble for fraud. Don’t get in this bad habit.

4. Is gold-filled the same as gold plate?
No, gold plating is a miniscule layer of solid gold applied to a brass base. The plating does not compose any measurable proportion of the product’s total weight. It is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating will wear off rather quickly and expose the brass base product. It does not stand up to heat, water or wear over time. By comparison, gold-filled contains 5% gold by weight; moreover, all the gold is on the surface which offers product protection from tarnish and wear.

5. Can gold-filled tarnish?
Yes it can, but it takes a rare set of circumstances. Gold-filled is usually a lifetime product because the gold layer bonded to the brass core is quite thick. However, in rare instances of extreme sulfide exposure the gold-filled can blacken. This has only occurred a handful of times over our decades of gold-filled use. Foreign transit through extremely polluted shipping docks in a few countries has caused the product to blacken on several occasions. The only domestic cases we have had were products stored in nail salons with high levels of chemical sulfide fumes and due to a fire where the structure was filled with smoke and all the gold-filled in the building turned black. These are extreme conditions that are unlikely to happen to most end users. However, it has made me think twice about breathing the air in nail salons. Usually, gold filled just requires light surface cleaning with an untreated cloth or mild soapy water.
