Announcement   Harmony. FUNction. Brilliance. These are the elements of design I strive for within each piece.

Welcome! I'm glad you've stepped into The Heart Department. My name is Mariel Heart and I specialize in Argentium Sterling Silver, 18 karat yellow gold hand fabrication (metalsmithing). You will not find plated or filled metals here. What you will find are natural, genuine gemstones and eco-friendly recycled metals.

You will also find uplifting messages, sometimes called Affirmations, Poems or Prose as I write words to that accompany each piece.

Are you interested in having a piece custom made just for you? Please message me at mariel [!at] theheartdepartment.com or feel free to call (i'm human) 615-975-5406.
My custom work is not limited to what you see here in my shop. Explore here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/117402137@N06/sets/72157641145071953/

I've received sooooo many compliments on these, and my dogs seem really comfortable in them :) Super cool and worth the investment!

About

Jewelry is an intimate and beautiful form of empowerment.

I used to think jewelry was a treasure for it's sentimental value, yet a material item we can't take with us. Then, I realized jewelry is the most intimate form of art because we can wear it and it holds so much energy. I write uplifting poems for each piece as an easy daily reminder of where to direct one's focus. It's laid-back luxury grounded in spirituality and I call it Stylish Brain Food.

If you like to look good, feel good and give thoughtful gifts, you've come to the right place.

    Hi, I'm Mariel Heart. I make handmade jewelry as a beautiful form of empowerment by writing affirmations that explain the attributes provided by the gemstones and my designs.

Shipping
I will ship anywhere in the World as long as import/export rules allow. All items are gift wrapped and carefully packed in cotton, paper, and/or bubble wrap filled boxes to ensure a damage-free arrival, which means I have to use the package mailing rates, rather than envelope rates. I will always ship the fastest and most economical option unless otherwise requested. Additional charges apply for expedited shipping.

Domestic: Shipped via USPS Priority Mail (2 business days) with Insurance within the United States. In the small boxes, this usually costs me $8+ depending on the insured amount. I always opt for insurance because I've risked it and I promise it isn't worth the sleepless nights wondering if it will get there.

International: To Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, and E.U. countries: Shipped via First Class International Airmail or Priority Mail International service. International shipping rates are based on package rates and delivery destinations and may vary from the estimated shipping. All additional duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer. Insurance for International is not provided but is optional if you request it. As you may know, the price increases dramatically with insurance, so with international orders, I only offer it as an option. Before buying from a country not listed above, please check that your country allows for jewelry from the United States. If unsure, you can check here: http://pe.usps.com/text/imm/immctry.htm Please contact me via the "Contact" button if you have questions.

Local Delivery: If you live in or around Nashville, Tennessee, you don't have to wait for your piece in the mail. Simply contact me and I’ll be happy to deliver your purchase to you.

Your purchase is shipped no later than 48 hours after payment is cleared for items I've already completed. For items that I have to make, please note the delivery times in the listing. For made-to-order items, they ship within 10 business days, unless you request otherwise. I will send you a confirmation message once the item is shipped.

Please contact me if you require a different shipping method prior to purchase so I may adjust any differences in price (be it expedited or with hold delay). I am happy to accommodate any requests.
Refunds and Exchanges
Collection items are available for refund or exchange within 30 days of purchase.

Refund is based on the original form of payment. If you are returning a gift, you will receive a store credit / exchange only.

In the case of an exchange, shipping for the new item will be free of charge.
(However, I do not refund return shipping charges, unless I made an error.)

Custom and personalized orders are not available for refund or exchange.

Warranty:

The Heart Department jewelry is guaranteed for life. I hope that when you choose to make a purchase here, it is the beginning of a long relationship. Everything I create is intended to be future artifacts.

If you have any problem with something purchased from me, as long as the damage is not due to misuse or intentional abuse, my warranty covers the repairs. Just contact me and be ready to pay the shipping both ways; I'll cover the rest. It's as simple as that. Email: mariel [!at] theheartdepartment.com and tell me what’s up.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome custom requests and am more than happy to work with you to create a special treasure according to your specifications.

Wholesale: I accept wholesale orders. Please contact me for my catalog: mariel [!at] theheartdepartment.com. A tax ID number is required for access.

Sizing: Please contact me with your inquiry.

Care & Maintenance: Always put your jewelry on after you spritz yourself with hairspray and perfume, as the chemicals can damage the metal &/or stones. For cleaning Argentium Sterling Silver you can use Windex (yes, Windex! that move "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was right!) or toothpaste mixed with water and then rub the piece gently with your fingers followed with a rinse and blow dry or air dry (diluted Mr. Clean works great too). A product I recommend is Connoisseurs Silver Jewelry Cleaner sold in a little gray tub at Bed. Bath & Beyond -it takes 5 seconds, just don't dip anything but silver in it. Please try not to swim, sleep, garden, mow the lawn, workout, etc. while wearing your jewelry. Jewelry is precious, and even though it can hold up to these activities, it is not meant for any of these purposes. Some of my items are made to endure such activities, and certain pieces of my own jewelry I wear all the time too. So don't worry too much. Just enjoy.
