Refunds and Exchanges
If you break an item after purchase, I cannot replace it.

If an item received it incorrect, please let me know straight away. I am very careful to get the spelling and all the details correct that I am given. So please make sure that you supply me with the correct spelling, dates of birth, etc, for the inscription you would like on the rice as I cannot take responsibility for being given the wrong information.
Additional policies and FAQs
Q. How long does the rice last?
A. As the mineral oil in the vials helps to preserve the rice, they can last years and years. I know of people who have had them for decades! When you look at rice all day like I do, you get to know it's nature pretty well. I never write on rice that has a flaw or is cracked but not broken.
Q. Does the coloured oil lessen your ability to see the writing?
A. No, the colours are translucent. Some or the colours have a really cool feature in that they can look very vivid, almost neon in some light and some subdued in others. Pink and Purple oils have this ability.
Q. What sort of pen/ink do you use.
A. Trade secret! However, I will tell you that the ink is acid-free, water resistant, and permanent.
Q. Do you write in different colours?
A. Yes, I can. However, it is more difficult to write in other colours so I cannot fit more than 10 letters across a grain of rice with a coloured pen. I usually use coloured pens when someone asks me to draw a love heart or anything like that. The additional colours I can use, apart from black, are: Red, Green, & Blue. These are better viewed through clear oil, rather than coloured oil.
Q. Are the dried flowers real?
A. Yes. However, they are dyed to make them the colours they are. No, the colour does not bleed from the flowers.
Q. What age groups do rice pendants appeal to?
A. I love it when people ask if I think their friend or relative will like the rice pendants because of their age. I have sold rice pendants and charms to people of all ages. Young children and teens especially love buying charms in pairs so that they can give their best friend one. Teens and older people love having their boyfriend's, girlfriend's, wife's, or husband's name on rice. Some people wear rice pendants inscribed with the name of a lost loved one. Some like their star sign or date of birth, or place name inscribed on their grain of rice. The options are endless and people of all age groups find them fascinating.
