About

A little about how Bubu Ruby came to life...

I've been in the fashion industry for what feels like forever now :) I spent a lot of years working for others waiting for my turn... (not that I really knew what it was, I just knew it existed) I somewhat spontaneously opened a clothing store with my best friend a few years back and learned hard about how much I wasn't into clothing and textiles... And Im a strong believer that people are meant to do what they love and that is when we do our best! Although, if all the stars didn't align and I didn't have to spend all those countless hours sitting in that store bored out of my tree watching the rain, I never would have fallen faithfully into the path I am on now. I started with a bracelet for myself. It was pretty amazing. It had its flaws but I loved it! I made another (with less flaws) and gave it away. The third one was perfect. I admired it for a bit as it sat by my register.... a customer bought it! And then the magic happened. I got more supplies, different colors! big ones, small ones. I made a few necklaces and some super basic earrings and they sold! And the rest is history... I look back on those days and have a good laugh at what I was trying to do, but many hours, days, mistakes, and successes have really brought it together.

I am reminded daily of how grateful I am and how lucky I feel (not to say it isn't a TON of work... the hardest I have ever worked) but well worth it and so incredibly rewarding. I thank you all for your love and support and dedication to my gems. You truly are what keeps the ball rolling :)

All items are shipped from sunny Los Angeles.

Unfortunately, I cannot be responsible for packages once they have been turned over to the postal carrier. If you wish to have more protection through the post office please purchase shipping insurance. You may contact me if you would like to add this option and I will add the cost to do so.

For most items, and all stated, orders ship within 3-5 business days.

International packages can take up to 10 weeks including potential customs delays.

**Rush Orders
Rush orders are either expedited through me making them faster, or by shipping them with priority mail. Expedited shipping is not guaranteed through USPS unless it is shipped with priority mail EXPRESS. In the case your package was shipped with priority mail EXPRESS and not delivered in the declared time frame, your additional shipping cost will be refunded Items shipped with priority mail can be delayed as first class packages can also. USPS does not refund in either of these cases.

**Cancellations
Orders can be cancelled within 24 hours, after that there will be a 30% restocking fee as the item may already be made, ordered into stock, or in process.

**International shipping can take up to 5 weeks depending on Customs. Usually international packages average between one and three weeks. Please be patient.
CUSTOMS FEES - The buyer is responsible for any customs fees. Orders will not be refunded in the event where international customs fees are refused by the buyer.

Missing packages shipped with tracking numbers via USPS are unfortunately beyond my control. Please contact your local postal service for additional information. Insurance is automatically included in orders over $50. Packages sent within the US that have not been delivered within 21 days from the shipping date will be refunded or replaced as per the buyers preference.
Once a package enters the postal system, it is beyond my control. Any missing international packages will be replaced if not delivered after 10 weeks (70 days) days.

If an item arrives damaged, please take a photo and send it within 7 days of receiving your order. I will replace, repair, or refund at your request with no added expense for shipping to the buyer.

**Most pieces are made on a 1.2 mm gold filled, gold vermeil, and sterling silver chains. These are delicate and dainty as that is the desired aesthetic.

**Returns
As the majority or my items are made to order, I do not accept returns. In the circumstance where an agreement has been made, there is a 30% restocking fee, not including the cost of shipping (which is non refundable). This restocking fee is used for the fees and time used to originally list (and relist) the item. Earrings are not eligible for return or refund for sanitary reasons.

The label is to be attached to the package and returned in a similar way as it was received. If the label expires, or the package is not shipped in a sufficient way, or delivery is incomplete, it is the buyers responsibility to cover the cost and/or loss. Buburuby is not responsible for mishandled return items.

Terms and Conditions related to usage of jewelry made or sold by Buburuby are as follows:

"Please contact Buburuby regarding any allergies prior to purchase or usage if you have any know allergies or allergy concerns.

*Allergy Disclaimer - Buburuby including any/all of its affiliates will not be held responsible for any allergic reaction to jewelry either made by or sold by Buburuby. With proven hypoallergenic reactions or severe reactions to jewelry it is highly likely that your sensitivity response is different to the next person. Some people can react to any form of metal, whether it is precious or not, while others may have no reaction and/or don't even realize they have an allergy.
It is common to confuse precious metal allergies with irritation from some other source which are often overlooked including dirty or ill-fitting jewelry. If your jewelry has been plated, it may be that the plating metals are causing an allergic reaction, not the precious metal under it. For example, some rhodium and gold plating has a barrier-plate of nickel - a common metal which can trigger allergies. You may have an allergic reaction to the nickel content in a layer of the plating but not the precious metal underneath it. Sterling silver is "alloy" based, of which 92.5% is pure silver and the remaining 7.5% of the alloying made of other metals. This is why a Sterling silver hallmark can read "925", meaning (at least) 925 parts of a 1000 parts. It is this ratio of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals which essentially enables silver to be hallmarked "Sterling". Medical research indicates that once you have developed an allergy to nickel, your body's immune system can occasionally (rarely) mistakenly identify palladium and cobalt as nickel whereby your body reacts as if these metals were nickel.

*Parents and guardians should only allow children over the age of twelve to wear any type of jewelry. Children over the age of twelve should only wear jewelry items under constant supervision of the parent or guardian supervision and only for special occasions.

In no event will Buburuby including any/all of its affiliated be liable for any loss, damage, injury or death whatsoever, including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss, damage, injury or death arising from the ownership, usage, handling or wearing of any jewelry piece sold, repaired, redisigned or worked on in any way by us.

IMPORTANT: If you wear a pacemaker, always check any jewelry yourself for magnetism which may affect the functioning of your pacemaker. In no event will we be liable for any loss, damage, injury or death whatsoever, including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss, damage, injury or death arising from the ownership, usage, handling or wearing of any jewelry piece sold, repaired, redesigned or worked on in any way by Buburuby including any of its affiliates which may contain magnetism."
