Absolutely beautiful! Not the same stone in the photo, but absolutely one of a kind and far prettier than the picture. Thank you so much! Could not be happier.

About

Vibrant gemstones, classic designs

Christmas is and has always been my favorite holiday. Not because of the gifts, and despite my strange obsession for the smell of pine trees, it's not that either. Every Christmas I knew I would get to go shopping with my dad for my mom's Christmas gift. He made it a tradition to buy her a piece of jewelry each year from the same jeweler year after year. I remember looking into the brightly lit cases at the rainbow of gemstones and falling in love with all the shapes, colors, and different styles. My love for jewels and jewelry began early, but it wasn't until I was 30 that I would turn my passion into a career.

I began taking evening classes to learn different skills of jewelry making. It all started with a fusing class, then I learned how to solder, create bezels, set stones and more. These classes fueled my desire to create my own line, one that embodied my passion for stones and incorporating color into life. I launched Rachael Ryen in 2011. Inspiration is found in everything, from a trip to Croatia or a beautiful sunset over the Boston Harbor. My collection is simple, classic and timeless so that each piece of jewelry can stand the test of time both in quality and style.

I hope you enjoy Rachael Ryen jewelry as much as I've enjoyed creating it.

My designs consist of natural gemstones set in gold-filled, gold vermeil, and sterling silver. I love using color as an expression of self and found gemstones are a wonderful way to do this. Each piece is designed with the latest trends in mind, with a classic touch to ensure it stands the test of time.

Payment
I accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express as a form of payment. Your order will be processed within 1 business days of receiving payment, or longer if your item is custom (listings will state when an item takes some additional time to make).
Shipping
Many of my items are Made to Order (custom). This means they are not completed until ordered. All Made to Order items take time, up to 3 weeks depending on the item. If you have questions about the shipping time please ask before purchasing. Custom orders cannot be cancelled once started. All packages are packaged with care to ensure they reach their destination safely.

ADDRESS VERIFICATION POLICY: Please make certain the address you have in your Etsy profile is correct and complete, including first and last name, apartment numbers, suite numbers, c/o information, ect. before purchasing. I cannot be held responsible for incorrect or incomplete addresses. If an order is shipped to an incorrect address USPS insurance becomes null and void (per USPS). Address changes after the order is submitted are NOT permitted (this is due to PayPal and credit card requirements for shipping to the same address as entered in an order). If you've submitted an incorrect address, you must cancel and resubmit the order. All shipping labels are printed direct from Etsy's system and addresses will be printed exactly as you enter it.

The standard shipping method used is USPS First Class mail. Upgrade options are available at the cost outlined below. Please contact me for one of these options.

First Class Mail: The majority of domestic shipments (locations within the US) arrive within 4-5 business days depending on destination, however please note USPS does not guarantee time frames for delivery of First Class packages. All domestic packages are tracked and insured which is included in the shipping price. International shipments can take between 15-45 days and are only tracked until they leave US customs. USPS does not insure First Class parcels sent to international destinations as they can't be tracked after customs. Please contact me about purchasing upgraded shipping to ensure we've properly insured your jewelry.

Priority Mail Upgrade: Includes tracking and insurance for domestic and international orders.

- Within the US: $6.95 >>>>>>>>>1-3 business days delivery for most locations
- Canada: $16.95 >>>>>>>>>>>> 8-12 business day delivery for most locations
- All Other Destinations: $20.95>>>10-14 business day delivery for most locations

Express Mail Upgrade: Includes tracking and insurance for domestic and international orders.

- Within the US: $20.95 >>>>>>>>>1 business day delivery for most locations

DOMESTIC SHIPMENT - All in stock, pre-made items ship within 1 business day of payment via USPS First Class Mail (custom / made to order purchases or those items with stated extended processing times will be longer).

INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENT- International shipments are shipped First Class Mail unless you upgrade to Priority. This shipping method doesn't include tracking or insurance. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee or estimate International shipping time frames as they vary greatly between countries and customs processing. Please also be aware that certain countries implement customs fees for shipments originating from the US. Its best to check these customs charges with your local post office. Parcels will be marked as merchandise with the item and dollar value as required by customs.

INSURANCE- As wonderful as the US postal service is, packages can still get lost or stolen. All domestic packages now have insurance and tracking included in shipping prices. Should something happen to your order, please contact me and we'll work together to file a claim with the post office. Please contact me for insuring international shipments.
Refunds and Exchanges
Customer satisfaction is very important to me. I want my customers to enjoy their new jewelry as much as I have making it. If you are not happy with your purchase, please contact me.

Purchases unworn and in new condition will be accepted for exchange up to 7 days after receipt. Please note, I cannot accept sale items or custom orders for return. Custom orders constitute monogram pieces, made to order items, or custom chain lengths.

All items returned for exchange must be mailed back in the original packaging in new and unused condition (unworn, undamaged). Please note postage, tracking and adequate insurance is the responsibility of the buyer when returning an item for an exchange. Please notify me and allow me to respond before sending a return.

Items received that show signs of wear will not be exchanged and the item will be returned to the buyer at the buyers expense. For hygienic reasons I cannot accept worn merchandise.

Unfortunately I cannot accept returns on custom orders (this includes made to order, monogram pieces, all initial pieces and rings). Custom orders cannot be cancelled once purchased.

If you receive your item damaged please contact me immediately. All parcels are insured and you will be asked to fill out an affidavit to claim the loss.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items will be made and shipped per the specifications in the listing. If you request changes be made to the jewelry after its been ordered and made, we will draw up an estimate for you to make those modifications. This is necessary to cover our costs such as soldering, additional chain lengths, ect.

JEWELRY CARE:

Congratulations on your new piece! Rachael Ryen Jewelry is crafted with the intention of being loved for years to come. Here are some simple instructions that will ensure your piece stands the test of time:

- Never wear your jewelry in spas, pools, oceans, or while showering. For gold vermeil jewelry, allowing the pieces to get wet will wear the plating off much quicker. It also can weaken other components and damage certain gemstones used in the designs. Showering is the number one way I have clients request duplicate earrings and replacement pieces. They get caught on something, break, and slide down the drain.

- Gold vermeil rings are especially vulnerable to wearing of plating along the band. To slow this process remove rings when washing hands, applying moisturizer, and using cleaning products. Many moisturizers will strip gold plating off rings.

- Never clean with your jewelry on. Harsh chemicals and abrasives in cleaners can damage jewelry (even solid gold!).

- Never spray hairspray or parfume on or around jewelry.

- Remove jewelry before exercising or entering a sauna.

A a general rule of thumb, jewelry should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night. Store your jewelry in the box it came in or a cloth lined jewelry box. Its best to store pieces individually so they don't scratch against each other.

Sterling silver and sterling silver based pieces are prone to tarnishing. However, its very easy to clean and restore the brilliant silver and gold tones. First, try wiping with a soft, untreated cloth. If there is still tarnish that remains, use a mild silver polish (my favorite is Tarn-X). Follow the directions on the bottle carefully. Never submerge jewelry in cleaners for more than a few seconds (that's all it takes!).

WHOLESALE: We work with boutiques and retail stores worldwide to offer Rachael Ryen jewelry to your customers. Please email me at rachael [!at] rachaelryen.com for more details. Please note, we are no longer accepting consignment accounts.
