About bluehourdesigns

Sales 23,516
On Etsy since 2009

Welcome!

Everything begins with sheet or wire.

We cut, form, hammer and forge metal into all of the designs you see. From beginning to end, each design is built by Norbert and Alysia, and we each have our skill-set: Alysia is the designer and does all of the solder work and finishing, while Norbert is master of the schematics of each design. His engineering background is a great asset to our work.

During the making process, each piece of jewelry passes multiple times between us and after 10+ years of making jewelry, it has all become quite fluid as we construct each piece of jewelry.

The inspiration for our name 'blue hour' comes from the French expression 'l'heure bleue', which refers to twilight. Twilight has always been Alysia’s favorite and most inspiring time of day, and it is also a vivid part of her very first memory as a child.

We are a multi-cultural family and find inspiration for our jewelry in our backgrounds and frequent travels. Alysia is also influenced by strong graphic lines and sculptural forms, which are the backdrop for many of her designs. All of this manifests into designs that embody a modern and worldly aesthetic.

In-stock Items: We will refund 100% of your purchase (less shipping costs) if the item is returned within 10 days from the date received.

Custom orders and custom sized rings: Unfortunately, since these items are made after a specific design or only fit a specific size finger, they only carry a limited return policy. Each case is handled individually, but generally these designs only have a 50% refund return policy. Please convo us within 10 days from the date you received your item to discuss your situation.
Payment
We accept all major credit cards and payments through PayPal.
Shipping
We firmly believe in shipping as soon as possible and will make every attempt to get your purchased design to you as soon as possible. Please, keep in mind that many of our items are made to order, but we are always committed to shipping within 6 days from receiving payment.

Costs and delivery times vary per location. Please send us a convo with your exact needs prior to purchasing so we will be able to provide you with a custom shipping quote. Buyer is responsible for any applicable import duties and VAT charged by your country, if any.

Insurance:
Cost varies based on the amount of insurance desired.

Gift Wrapping:
All our items are already shipped gift-wrapped! If you would like to add a personalized note, we’d be happy to include that free of charge. Also, if you wish to send your purchased items directly to the recipient, simply put down their address in the Etsy transaction.
Additional policies and FAQs
RING SIZING – Please, please make sure that you know your ring size prior to ordering. It is a very difficult process and sometimes impossible to change the size of a ring once it is made. It is best if you can have your finger measured with a ring sizer. Most jewelers provide this service for free. However, if you are unable to do so, there are many complimentary ring sizers online that also work quite well. We usually refer our customers to http://www.bluenile.com/find-ring-size.
Please also see our return policy for custom sized rings.

CUSTOM ORDERS – Due to time limitations, we no longer work on custom orders.

*If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact us!
