Michael did a magnificent job designing my husband's replacement wedding ring! He was so patient and kind to me during the whole process. This ring is exactly how my husband and I hoped it would be...its beautiful and a symbol of my love for him. I highly recommend Michael and his jewelry making to anyone looking for a unique wedding band. Thank you Michael, you do amazing work! Shannon

Thank you for visiting the Slowack Jewelry studio. We design fine, vintage inspired and custom made engagement rings, wedding bands, and other fashion accessories.

The items that we produce are considered high-end, fine jewelry, destined to become heirloom pieces. We use precious metals and natural gemstones only. All our items are original pieces, designed and produced by the Slowack Jewelry studio in Chicago. Our items are sold exclusively through our Etsy shop.

We want our Shop's Policies to be as crystal clear as possible. Should you have any question, concern or suggestion, please do not hesitate to contact us.

*** LEAD TIME ***
Attention! Due to the many custom orders we receive, there is a one week lead time before we are able to start the work on your project. Thank you for your understanding.

*** CUSTOM ORDERS ***
When you have a ring idea, that you don't see reflected in our shop, then please send a convo with your request.

*** RECYCLE or UPGRADE ***
You may have broken, unwanted or inherited pieces. We will be happy to take a closer look and see how we can recycle your gold or platinum, and/or re-set any of your gemstones.

*** LGBT-friendly VENDOR ***
Our shop has been approved as a LGBT-friendly vendor at http://www.soyoureengayged.com.

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
*** DEPOSIT ***
To get your custom jewelry project started a deposit is required. Your deposit will count towards the total cost of making your item(s). In most cases your deposit covers the cost of designing and printing a wax model or prototype of your piece(s). The deposit is non-refundable.

*** REMAINING BALANCE ***
After we have the custom wax model of your piece(s) made, we will calculate exactly how much metal is needed, and how much the total cost of designing and manufacturing your custom item(s) will be. As soon as you can agree on moving ahead with casting and completion of your items, we will notify you of the remaining balance due. Once your item(s) are completed, we will reserve a listing in our shop for you. This listing will have pictures of your completed item and the remainder as price. You can then purchase this item to complete your order. The remaining balance will need to be paid in full prior to shipping. The item needs to be paid for in full no later than four weeks after the completion date. When you go beyond four weeks, we will be forced to add a finance fee to your balance. Once shipped, you will receive tracking info and updates from either usps.com or fedex.com.

*** US PAYMENTS ***
We accept PayPal, money order, cashier's check or personal check. When using PayPal, please send payment to michael.slowack [!at] sbcglobal.net. When paying by money order or check, then we will provide you a mailing address.

*** NON-US PAYMENTS ***
We accept payments through PayPal only.
Shipping
*** DOMESTIC SHIPPING ***
We insure almost all of my packages, therefore the shipping cost varies depending on the value of your item. We use the following shipping methods: USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Small Box with 2-3 days delivery time, USPS Express Mail. If needed, then we can ship your package with FedEx.

*** INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ***
We ship the majority of my international packages with USPS International Express Mail. Shipping with FedEx is an option as well. Shipping cost may vary, depending on value of your package, weight and distance to the destination. If you have any questions about the shipping method or cost, please contact us.

*** GIFT BOXES ***
Your items will come in a secure, matching gift box.
Refunds and Exchanges
*** REFUND POLICY ***
We will honor a full refund on non-custom designed items such as our scroll wedding rings. For returns on custom designed items (the majority of what we design), we can offer a partial refund only. As we are unable to refund labor cost and the cost of some materials used in the process of making your piece, you will be offered a refund for the value of the metal and stones only. Experience tells us that it will be very unlikely, that you would want to return a custom made item. During the making of your piece, we will keep you informed and up to date on each step in the production process. Beforehand, we will discuss all the details of your project, meticulously. Our CAD images/drawings, and our photographs of the actual pieces are very detailed, so, please make sure that you have studied the pictures. Our photos show more than what can be seen with the naked eye and we do our best in writing the descriptions as detailed as possible. If you have any doubt as to how an item will look 'in reality' or 'on your finger', please do not hesitate to ask.

*** RETURN PLAN ***
We do allow store credit if you feel that your item does not suit you, provided it is returned in its original condition. You will be responsible for the return shipping cost.

*** RETURN ADDRESS ***
E.D.M. Attn Michael Slowack, 5 South Wabash Ave, Suite 401A, Chicago IL 60603, United States.
Additional policies and FAQs
*** RE-SIZING FEE ***
Provided your ring can be re-sized, the minimum re-sizing charge is $35, and this on all rings, custom or non-custom items. Your re-sizing fee can be higher than $35 if additional metal is being used in the re-sizing process, or, if additional work needed to be performed. Shipping the ring back to you is also to be paid by the customer.

*** LIFETIME WARRANTY ***
Your item will come with our lifetime warranty on our labor and materials used. Should you experience any problem due to our labor or materials, then please return the item(s). We will perform all necessary repairs, at no extra cost. My warranty excludes the loss of the item through theft or accident, and damages due to normal wear and tear.

*** APPRAISALS ***
Appraisals are available upon request, and will be performed by an independent gem lab in Chicago. Cost is $85. An appraisal officially documents the value, quality and veracity of your jewelry. This is an important document that you should present to your insurance agent, when insuring personal items. Also, when reselling jewelry, an appraisal often justifies the asking price.
