simple | thoughtful | handcrafted jewelry

We believe HANDMADE TAKES TIME - focusing on the little details, craftsmanship and quality. We believe IN SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER - as a company, as customers, as individuals - to help each of us truly value our worth and strength. We believe EVERY EXPERIENCE AND INTERACTION SHOULD BE A POSITIVE ONE, wrought with inspiration, respect and kindness.

AFFORDABLE QUALITY
All of our jewelry is handmade in our Nashville, TN studio - we source materials from the US and Germany. Our plating is the best we can offer - with the thickest gold layer we are able to provide and a rhodium barrier for added durability. None of our jewelry has nickel. We do our best to update pieces to improve quality, fit and design. Because you deserve the best quality.

HANDMADE WITH LOVE
It is important to us to keep our jewelry production in studio as much as possible so the integrity and quality of our process isn’t compromised. Making jewelry isn’t a job but a passion - we love the process of making jewelry from the first step to the last polish. And we hope the love we put in the process passes through to you.

INSPIRED BY YOU
Our pieces are brought to life by the meaning they hold to you. We are inspired by your story, your struggles, your triumphs. You have given us this opportunity to create beautiful, inspired jewelry and we hope your experience reflects our appreciation. We are thoughtful about every detail of what we do, curating your experience from browsing our website to opening your order. We know how special you are, and we strive to make you feel it every step of the way.

THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED
We make more than jewelry. We create pieces that celebrate you, comfort you, inspire you and commemorate your memories - speaking to what is on your heart. We make a conscious effort to offer a wide variety of personalization and sizing options allowing you to order a piece of jewelry that is perfect for you.

A CELEBRATION OF FEMININITY
Christina Kober Designs is a female founded, run & focused company. We are inspired by what it means to be a woman - confident and vulnerable, strong and sensual, capable and thoughtful. Because some days you feel like a badass woman and others days you need to be reminded of your worth.

VERSATILE + EVERYDAY
Make it your own - from the messaging to the way you wear it. Our jewelry is intentionally designed to be simple and delicate, making them versatile to be styled throughout the seasons and easily added to your existing everyday jewelry or worn alone. Adding a touch of sparkle or a reflection of your mood, our jewelry is an expression of who you are.

OOPS!
Did we make a mistake? We are so sorry! Unfortunately, it does happen on occasion. Please let us know as soon as possible so we can make it right! We will send you a prepaid return label* and fix it for you.

We know selecting your ring size can be tricky - and we want you to LOVE your ring and wear it always. Within 6 months of your ring purchase, we offer one complimentary ring resizing - it’s easy! Contact us and we will send you a finger sizer and a prepaid return label*.

Just send the bracelet or necklace back to us and we will adjust the size. (please note for necklaces: if the chain length adjustment would affect the price, a fee to reflect the price difference will apply)

Please note : shipping charges apply for international orders. Adjustments and resizing may take up to 1 - 3 weeks.

STAMPING + PERSONALIZATION
We make a conscious effort to offer a wide variety of personalization options - fonts, layout, and placement - allowing you to order a piece of jewelry that is perfect for you. Our pieces are laid out and stamped by hand - giving each piece a one-of-a-kind feel - lines are not always perfectly straight, reflecting the handmade nature of our jewelry. We do our best to represent the personalization options you give us; however, if you are unhappy with the layout or placement please contact us about a rework.
Fees are applied on a case by case basis.

We will stamp your piece exactly as it has been entered. Sometimes we catch spelling mistakes or grammatical errors and we will contact you to confirm the wording; however, it is your responsibility to check your spelling and grammar.

If you are unsure about the layout or message please don’t hesitate to contact us.

BROKEN CHAIN
While our chains are delicate - we solder every jump ring to ensure they are strong and durable. Should your chain break for any reason we are happy to repair or exchange it for you.
0 - 4 months of order : We’ll fix it for you for free and send you a return label.*
4 - 12 months of order : We’ll fix it for you, we ask you to pay a fee to cover half the cost of a chain.
12 + months of order : We’ll fix it for you, we ask you to pay a fee to cover the full cost of a new chain.

BROKEN RINGS
Any wide inspirings that were purchased before June 2017 are eligible for a free repair. We have since updated our ring band material to a more sturdy band.

Any repair needed due to regular wear and tear, we will be happy to repair the item free of charge within 4 months of the original purchase date. You pay the cost of shipping and we will ship it back to you free of charge.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Due to customs delays and no customer support provided for international shipments with USPS - we have decided to temporarily suspend all international orders until further notice.

We ship worldwide!

Your order will be shipped using USPS First Class International with insurance. Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for delivery, and also kindly be aware of any customs restrictions to your country. Any and all customs fees, duties, and taxes incurred on the package's journey will be the sole responsibility of the buyer. All packages will be shipped with a customs form declaring the full value of the merchandise, that the item(s) is made in the USA, and declared as Merchandise (even if your order is a gift).

PLEASE NOTE: Once a package has left the U.S., no further tracking information will be posted via the customs number. We cannot guarantee delivery by any certain date, as packages can (and sometimes do) take an indecipherable amount of time to be cleared by customs. We cannot take action on "missing" items until at least 45 days have passed.

Please contact us if you would like a quote for a faster shipping method or Registered Mail with international tracking information. We will be happy to check into available options, specific to your needs.

INSURANCE

We cannot be responsible for lost or damaged items before 45 days after the item has shipped. Please contact us if something has gone awry, so that we may work with the 3rd party insurance to resolve the issue.

A custom piece is uniquely your own, styled with all the CHRISTINA KOBER DESIGNS aesthetics you love along with your own distinctive personality. The CHRISTINA KOBER DESIGNS aesthetic refers to the designs, patterns, textures, shapes, and styles that already exist in our line. Here is an example of how you would work within those limits: take certain design elements of one piece and combine them with a design feature of another piece, for example: a stone set in the block letter initial like they are set in the catch a falling star cuff bracelet.

Once you decide on a final design, you will receive a quote. Once you approve the quote and send payment, the process of creating your CHRISTINA KOBER DESIGNS jewelry will begin.
