About AuroraDesigner

Sales 10,508
On Etsy since 2016

Modern and beautiful jewelry for everyday wear

Our founder, Jo, began the Aurora Designer journey back in 2015 when she was searching for her own wedding bands. She found the selection of unique and affordable jewelry lacking for her own tastes - and realized that she couldn’t be the only one who felt that way! With an inquisitive mind and an innate love for natural gemstones, Jo dove headfirst into the industry, immersing herself in the world of creative jewelry design to bring you the whimsical pieces she had always envisioned in her head.

Over the years, Jo has traveled the world to locate the most interesting and unique gemstones she can find. We source materials from artisan and established dealers, working with stone cutters and jewelry manufacturers to bring you the vast variety of pieces we offer today. Jo is passionate about studying the entire mine-to-market supply chain and working closely with suppliers in each step of the process to bring you these natural wonders at a sensible price.

Today, we remain a tiny business based in South Florida. Our small team of local staff works tirelessly to answer your questions day in and day out, take all photographs/videos in-house, manage our online presence, and translate your custom requests into beautiful, finished jewelry pieces.

Our ultimate goal is to provide unique jewelry pieces made with delicate care and attention to detail that you won’t find at your local chain jewelry store. From your imagination to something you can hold in your hands, we are here for you every step of the way. We are not your average jewelry shop; we embrace being “different” and we are here to make your jewelry dreams come true.

Frequently asked questions
Returns and Exchanges

All made-to-order, customized, personalized, altered items, or custom orders are non-refundable.

All items that have been altered (e.g. sized by us or by another jeweler, soldered to another ring, etc.) are non-refundable.

We accept returns on in-stock items only. You must contact us within 7 days of receipt and return the item within 14 days of receipt. We reserve the right to deduct the shipping charges from the refund. You will be responsible for the return shipping cost.

In-stock items priced at $100 or less are eligible for store credits only.

Anything that features a spring mechanism (e.g. spring gate charm holder) can be easily damaged. So anything of this nature is not eligible for returns and can be repaired or exchanged.

Warranty

We will replace loose or lost stones for the first 12 months after purchase if the issue is due to craftsmanship. If there is damage to the item, e.g. broken prongs (usually due to force or accident) or misshaped rings, we will replace the stone for a fee. After the first 12 months, we charge a fee for repairs and replacements.

This warranty does not apply to stones that are larger than 0.1ct, diamond slices, or any stones that are chipped through wear. This warranty is void if the jewelry is altered in any way by another jeweler (including but not limited to resizing, resetting a stone, etc.).

All repairs related to chains (e.g. necklaces or bracelets) and springs (e.g. push gate charm holders) will require a nominal fee.

Layaways / Payment Plans

We offer layaways or payment plans on all of our jewelry. Your initial payment should be at least 25% of the item's price. The remaining payments should be at least $100 each. The entire payment period should take no more than 6 months.

If you cancel the payment plan for any reason, we will charge a 25% restocking fee based on the full price of the item.

If you are doing a payment plan on items that are currently on sale, the sale price and discount will only apply to payments paid while the sale is going on. Once the sale is over, all of your remaining payments will go back to the original price. To take advantage of our sales, you should plan to pay as much as you can towards the payment plan during the sale period.

Gemstone Quality

We purchase all of our diamonds from reputable sellers and the diamonds we use are guaranteed to be conflict free by our suppliers. Most of our melees (small size diamonds) are of SI/H quality. We can use higher grade diamonds in some of our jewelry for an extra fee. Contact us for details.

All of our gemstones are natural and earth-mined, with the exception of moissanites.

We can send any of our gemstones or finished pieces to GIA for identification and certification. The fee will start from $100 and this process will take up to a month. Contact us for additional details.

Custom and personalized orders

Most of our rings can be custom made in platinum, 14K gold, or 18K gold. Typically 18K gold will cost an additional $100 and up from 14K gold; platinum will cost an additional $200 and up from 14K gold. Contact us for details.

We can add an engraving up to 20 characters (including spaces) for free for most of our rings. It will be in standard font (Arial). You can include the engraving text in the note section when you make the purchase.

Sizing details

If you need us to resize a ring due to incorrect sizing on your side, we will charge a $25 fee. We recommend that you have your finger sized at a local jewelry store or jeweler. We also offer ring sizing kits for a small fee.

We use this chart for ring size conversion: https://www.auroradesigner.com/pages/ring-size-conversion-chart

Production Time

Production time varies depending on the specific item. Please refer to the latest production time published in our Shop Announcement. As with handmade items, sometimes things go wrong and we experience delays beyond the advertised production window. We will keep you updated at all times if any delay is expected.

If you need to receive the item by a specific date, please contact us before placing your order. Always include a note with the intended delivery date when you place your order, so we can mark it accordingly.

Gemstone Sourcing

Our gemstones are purchased from trusted sellers based mainly in the U.S. and Hong Kong. Everyone we work with promises to abide by The Kimberley Process, an agreement established in 2003 that imposes extensive requirements to ensure and certify that the diamonds being traded do not fund any violence or rebel groups and their allies.

There is no "Kimberley Process" for other gemstones. However, we abide by the same ethical standards and procure our gemstones only from known sources.

We travel around the world to meet our suppliers and partners to ensure that gemstones and materials used in our jewelry are sourced and produced in a responsible and ethical manner.

For International Customers - Customs and Import Taxes

Many countries charge a fee on goods imported or shipped from abroad. This fee is called the "Customs Tax" or "Import Duty".

The price and shipping charge you pay for our jewelry do not include this "Customs Tax" or any customs clearance fees assessed by our international shipping carrier. In the event that you receive a bill from your country's customs office or our shipping carrier, you are responsible for paying this fee. Please inquire with your country's customs office on the specifics related to customs tax if you have any concerns.

If the package is returned to us due to the failure of payment for this fee, we will not be able to reship the package for fee. You will need to pay for the international shipping charge again.
