I bought the moonstone stacking ring and a hammered ring to go along with it, and I absolutely love them! They're beautiful and well made. I wear my rings every day!

About

A Tale of Two Artists...

Welcome to the literal and creative partnership of silversmith Joshua Haiman and fine artist Holly DeFount: together we have over three decades of experience in fine art and jewelry design. We handcraft every aspect of our jewelry, from initial pencil sketches, to delicately carved casting models, to hand-forged one of a kind statement pieces with an elegant, eclectic emphasis on art, history, and magic.

We formed our jewelry partnership shortly after getting married in September of 2013. Holly’s focus is on our figurative designs, drawing her inspiration from mythology, magic and alchemy, while Joshua is the master smith with a bold flair for design inspired directly by the character of the metal. Forge and Fountain represents each of our individual strengths and the character we bring to our work by combining them.

Payment
We happily accept payment from Paypal and Etsy's Direct Checkout. We will consider cancellation of sales within 24 hours of payment, but we regret we cannot cancel a sale after 24 hours, as we may have purchased materials or begun work on your item at that time. We will be happy to change your paid order for another item of equal or greater value, or issue you a store credit for the amount of the purchase to be used within 3 months.
Shipping
We ship all purchases, domestic and international via USPS Priority Mail within 7-10 business days of payment. We require a signature for delivery of all domestic packages we ship with a value over $100, as we cannot risk the chance of theft upon delivery of your jewelry. For domestic sales over $200, we will include insurance on your shipment at our expense. International sales are subject to the customs policies of the buyer's country, therefore we regret that we cannot insure international packages beyond the US Postal service's standard Priority Mail service.

For exchanges due to size, we re-ship most items via USPS First Class Mail unless other arrangements have been requested. We regret that we can only exchange rings once for size changes.
Refunds and Exchanges
FOR RINGS: We strongly suggest purchasing a ring sizer from us BEFORE ordering a custom ring. If you do, we will cover return and re-shipping costs for size changes after purchase. If you do not get a ring sizer from us prior to ordering a custom ring, you will be responsible for return and re-shipping costs for the ring when it is resized.

We will happily exchange your purchase upon its return to us for the following reasons:
-Wrong size
-Damage not due to normal wear and tear

If you are not satisfied with your purchase for any other reason, you may return the purchased item to us within 7 days of delivery to you for an equivalent dollar amount (item cost only) gift card to be used in our shop within 3 months. Buyer is responsible for return shipping/insurance in this case.
Additional policies and FAQs
We LOVE weddings! In addition to doing custom engagement and wedding ring sets, we will make multiples of any item in our shop for bridesmaid or groomsmen gifts. Depending on the item's specifications, we may offer discounted prices on sales of multiples. Turnaround time may vary depending on season, availability of materials and number of items ordered, though we will make every effort to deliver your jewelry with time to spare. Please convo us to discuss options if you're interested in ordering multiples!
