5 out of 5 stars

The ring is beyond over the top. Bigger and badder in person than any picture could do it justice. Sits comfortably with no spin and that nice weight I've been looking for. The customer service was on point every step of the way. All my questions were answered and all timelines were met. Too many details regarding the well above and beyond service to mention. Thanks a bunch Deric

Stunning! The boyfriend was shocked when he saw that I purchased this ring for him. We are planning on getting married next year and I remembered that he showed me this ring and told me that this was his dream ring. He never expected to actually receive it and was floored when I revealed my secret. It's on its way to be resized, sadly I had gotten the sizing wrong BUT we couldn't be happier with the quality of the ring nor the quality of the service received. Thank you!!

It's gorgeous- better than the pictures, more beautiful, and satisfying weighted than we had expected. The customer service was fantastic because Deric is very on top of communicating with his clients.

About

"The only thing we take seriously is jewelry" -Deric Metzger GJG AJA AJP: Founder, DeMer.

Way back in the 90's, a young actor and professional magician was working on a production of Shakespeare's Othello. While researching Elizabethan and Medieval style jewelry to assist the costuming department: a passion was born almost overnight.

Most of the jewelry we design and create at DeMer falls into a style we call "Neo-Gothic Revival" and while we can't claim credit for the term, we can promise the jewelry is all original. Our love of history and culture has had a hand in all our creations and most pieces have their own story to tell.

Our unique creations are built to be heavy, durable, and artistically unforgettable. We are often imitated but never re-produced. Quality means more then just materials and skilled craftsmanship, it means attention to detail. We sweat the small stuff here and it makes for better jewelry.

Deric and DeMer have earned many awards over the intervening years since inception and we have been fortunate enough to have earned the right to "Ghost Design" for companies like (everyone's favorite cartoon mouse-yes the big D.), Xikar Cigar Accessories, and too many other jewelry designers to list.

When the luminaries of the jewelry community trust us to make them look good, we can assure you, that you can trust us to make you look great.

We love to chat with clients and would-be clients, so please peruse our current collection here on Etsy, and experience the individual stories and hidden details of each piece of our niche designer jewelry. Contact us today to tell us what we can do to add to your life's story. We are at your service.

Thank you for reading and as always, please have a day worth remembering!

Returns and exchanges
DeMer does not take returns or exchanges due to the nature of the way we craft jewelry specifically for each client, even if the item is part of one of our normal line collections. DeMer does service all jewelry created by us at reduced costs for the life of the item. Once and item has been completed and shipped, DeMer assumes no responsibility from any mishandling, loss, theft, or damage while in transit, or upon arrival and unboxing. All jewelry leaves our hands in mint condition, is securely packaged, and sent expedited via national carrier-to you directly.

Since 1999 when DeMer began until today, not one single package has ever been stolen or damaged in transit. In the highly unlikely event this happens to you, DeMer will provide to you any and all information about the item, and origin of shipment information required for you to file a claim with whichever carrier the item was transported with.
Shipping
All "time till shipping" notices in listings are estimations based on past experience. Most items are made to order here in California, just for you, one at a time. As such there are times when your item will be completed and ship faster then expected, or might take a little longer. If you have specific time restraints or deadlines (i.e. a wedding date you need your rings before) then we encourage you to please contact us to let us know. We strive to meet any specific deadlines you request wherever possible. If a requested deadline is not possible we will inform you at the time of the request so we don't strain your time or nerves.

All domestic shipping is done by FedEx or UPS and will be very securely packaged in ultra-weight crush-proof boxes, with plenty of padding, and will not say "Jewelry" anywhere visible. All packages from DeMer feature high-tech instant "void" security seals for your protection.
Additional policies and FAQs
A note on estimated weights and "blackened" metals.

You will often find a section in our listings that says something like "up to 30 grams of (X Metal) depending on finger size". Different gold alloys and karats (the gold's purity) will have an effect on weight. different finishing techniques and of course, the ring sizes will all impact the final weight. Your ring or pendant may weight less or your ring/pendant may weight more. Handcrafted products will always have a variance to their production. It's just part of what makes them unique!

"Blackened" metals:

There is no such thing as "black gold" at least not outside of a lab and that unusual concoction falls apart to the touch. When we refer to "Black Gold" or platinum/sterling/palladium etc, we are referring to a surface treatment that darkens the metal. We use eight different techniques depending on the metal and the finish to achieve a darkened appearance so each combination of finish, and type of blackening will result in anything ranging from an antiqued appearance to a gunmetal finish to a spectral diffused anthracite. Monitors and settings affect how these finishes appear on your screen and can vary from piece to piece so if there is a particular look you wish to achieve, please tell us!

Blackened finishes do wear over time to reveal the metal beneath and this natural aging is part of the charm of the finish-like a favorite pair of jeans breaking in. DeMer can always re-finish and re-blacken your piece for you down the line as it wears for a nominal cost depending on the original blackening.
