Pieces of II - Time & Opulence

United States | 1,509 Sales

Announcement    COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT: WE REMAIN OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
We remain open during this crisis. We are a small, 2 person operation so by nature we are quite isolated, with little to no contact with others (our shipping even gets dropped off in a large bag twice a week!). Our supplies have been in our studio for months if not years, so there is nothing contaminated and we practice regular hand-washing and general good hygiene. All orders are shipping within their stated production time of 1-5 business days. We are not experiencing any delays. Keep in mind that once we ship an order, we have no control over whether the postal system is experiencing delays so it's best to check with your country's postal service to verify they are accepting international mail and for updated information on processing time.



Welcome to Pieces of II!
Please be sure to read the FAQ at the bottom of our shop for the most commonly asked questions! Don't forget to check the "SHIPPING/POLICIES" tab for any further questions about shipping!

ABOUT PIECES OF II
This shop holds 2 collections:

Pieces of Time - which are steampunk styled creations made from upcycled old watch parts and antique pocket watches. They are quite literally pieces of time, while also being pieces that used to tell the time. Each one is completely one of a kind.

Pieces of Opulence - are hand crafted opulent pieces of jewellery made in small numbers, so you never have to worry that someone else is wearing the same thing as you. I use old hardware such as key plates, door handles, and antique wax seals that all pay homage to the opulence and luxury of the past.

I also make leather bags and accessories using antique hardware, so please check out my other etsyshop: www.etsy.com/shop/divinadesigns

Thanks for visiting and please convo me if you have any questions!

Frequently asked questions
When will my order arrive?

All our items are 'made-to-order'. We require up to 4 business days to complete an order (often we ship before then!). If you need it sooner, please send us a message.

Shipping times depend on where you are located, please check the individual FAQ for your locations.

CANADIAN ORDER SHIPPING - READ THIS!!

We're in YVR but because we're close to the border between Canada and the USA, we can take advantage of USPS's more reasonable postage rates and save YOU money.

What this means is that our standard shipping method for Canadian orders is USPS First Class Mail International. This keeps the costs down BUT the trade off is that shipping times can take up to 3 weeks. We know it sucks, but Canada Post charges $15 to ship something within our own province where USPS charges $5.

If you would like to pay the more expensive Canada Post rates for us to ship via Expedited (1-7 days within Canada) we can, just send us a msg and we'll get a quote. In some listings we offer the ability to upgrade during checkout.

USA ORDER SHIPPING - READ THIS!!!

USA orders ship out of Blaine, WA via USPS first class mail (2-10 days). Orders usually ship out on Thursday or Friday of the week.

We offer the ability to upgrade to USPS Priority 1-3 Days during checkout- if you're on a tight deadline we highly recommend upgrading to USPS Priority.

INTERNATIONAL ORDER SHIPPING - READ THIS!!!

All international orders ship via USPS First Class Mail International. Packages come with tracking but it's up to the recipient's country's mail system to decide whether they will use those tracking numbers. This means that once it leaves the USA, unless your country has partnered with USPS for tracking, you won't see further updates until it arrives at your door.

Shipping times vary greatly depending on the country and as a rule of thumb we recommend allowing 4 weeks for shipping (JUST IN CASE!).

I have a design I'd like made into a wax seal pendant - can you do this?

Yes! Provided you have a high resolution image that would lend itself well to this (images with high detail are not going to work as well as basic line art). Please send us a message for more details.

Do you offer discounts for wholesale orders or bulk purchases?

Yes! We have a minimum order quantity for wholesale and for our retail customers we offer a discount when buying 5 or more of the same design. Please send us a message!

Pieces of II Business Hours

While the internet is available 24/7, we, unfortunately, are not! We try and respond to message within 1 business day and are on Pacific Standard Time. We usually answer questions in the mornings as we are in the studio making your orders in the afternoons. Thanks for understanding!

What if I don't like it? (Refunds & Exchanges)

We want you to love your Pieces of II and will do our best to make things right. We offer an unconditional return within 7 days of receipt (just send us a message to initiate a return) provided that your piece is in new, unused condition with all gift packaging that you received.*

*buyer is responsible for return shipping and any customs/duty fees
*custom orders or orders with customization can not be returned or exchanged
*cost of shipping will not be refunded.

In the unlikely event that we made a mistake we will of course make it right at no cost to you.

What makes your wax seal jewelry different?

Our pendants are made from our own private collection of antique wax seals, some of which date as far back as 500 years! Each pendant is hand stamped, not cast from a mould. This means every single pendant is completely one of a kind. No two will ever be the same, so you have a truly unique piece. While the seal impression is the same, the edges, or "wax ooze" will always be different.

It's a 7 step process to make each pendant, and we make each one, one at a time. They're stamped, sanded, heated to the metal's melting point, quenched, brushed, burnished, and finally antiqued to bring out the beautiful details of the seal impression. The back of our pendants have a very small maker's mark of our brand on them.
