FAQ / Policies

 

SHIPPING

Please be sure to confirm your shipping address when placing an order. If there is a mistake in your adress, please contact me as soon as possible to correct. I will not be responsible for incorrect mailing addresses.
All orders are shipped first class USPS or Priority Mail and a tracking number will be provided. Please know that I do everything possible to insure a safe delivery of your jewelry! I personally hand deliver every package directly to the post office. Once the order is dropped off at the post office, the order is now your responsibility. While I rarely have had issues with the post office, delays can happen. Please contact USPS or your local post office if any issues should arise.

I cannot be responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged packages. Please consider purchasing additional insurance for your package. Tracking is included in basic shipping to some countries but not all. Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.

Any packages returned to sender by the post office, due to the customer not paying customs/taxes and/or providing the incorrect shipping address, will not receive a refund on shipping costs and is subject to a 20% restocking fee. The customer may pay for the item to be re-shipped to the correct address with additional shipping fee.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS 

To properly care for your one-of-a-kind piece, take care while wearing as natural stones can be delicate. To prolong the life of your piece, I suggest you remove it before submerging it in water. It’s best to remove your jewelry before swimming, bathing, washing the dishes, etc. When not in use, store your piece in a cool dry place.
*Pro tip: save those silica gel packets from various purchases and tuck them in with wherever you store your jewelry to help control moisture!

Metals like silver and brass naturally react to the environment and moisture over time and can create a beautiful patina. Sometimes metals can react to your body’s chemistry or environment in an undesirable way.
The best way to clean your jewelry is to use a clean, soft, dry microfiber cloth to gently remove fingerprints, dirt, residue, and oils. Avoid using any harsh chemicals or jewelry cleaners as these can damage the surface of the stone or remove the patina on your piece. 
If you would like your DWC Creative jewelry professionally cleaned or polished up, just pay for shipping and I’ll clean them up for no additional fee! Please contact me to arrange shipment or drop off.

HOW WILL MY JEWELRY ARRIVE? 

All items are secured in jewelry boxes, tied up in twine, wrapped in tissue paper, and then shipped in padded eco friendly mailers. 
Purchasing for a friend or loved one? My packaging is intentionally designed to look like a gift! I will happily write a short note for your personalized gift, simply leave me a note at checkout.
A receipt is never included in any shipment unless requested. Please refer to your email confirmation or online account for a receipt.

RETURNS

I want you to be completely happy with your purchase. I do accept returns on a case by case basis. Please contact me within 7 days and return within 14 days to receive a full refund. 
You will receive a refund once the item is returned in original condition. Shipping costs will not be refunded. 
It is recommended but not required to purchase tracking for your return. Tracking your purchase will insure the item has been delivered back to me so that your refund will be guaranteed. 
If you feel your item does not fit, please reach out to me. Some items can be slightly resized. For instance most rings can be adjusted to be larger or necklaces can be shortened. Alterations made to jewelry will make the item final sale.
It takes quite a bit of time measuring items in detail specific to each product listing. Please read the descriptions of the item before purchasing. Items will no longer be accepted based on size/length. My best advice is to take out a ruler to visualize the size of the item. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need more pictures of the item before purchasing. 

WHAT’S MY SIZE? 

RINGS: The best way to find your ring size is to stop by any local jeweler and simply ask them to measure your finger. You also can bring a ring that you know fits well and have them measure it.
Keep in mind that thicker ring bands run smaller and you may have to size up half or one full ring size larger. You may also have to account for sizing up on your ring size if you stack multiple rings on one finger. I always do my best to have accurate sizes for thicker ring bands (mandrel size vs ring size) so feel free to ask me any questions before you order!
BRACELETS: Bracelets are based on preference of where you wear them on your arm, but the easiest way to find your wrist size is to simply measure your wrist with a soft tape measure. (If you do not own a flexible ruler, take a piece of string and wrap it around your wrist and then measure the string!) If your wrist is 7 inches, a 5.5 inch bracelet may still fit because it has over a 1 inch opening. Most bracelets can be slightly resized by pinching and pulling.
By request, some bracelets may be shortened to your preferred fit. Please contact me if you have any questions.

CAN I PUT A PIECE ON LAYAWAY OR ARRANGE MULTIPLE PAYMENTS?

I do accept payment plans on any item over $200. Simply send me a message under the “Contact Me” tab or email devincoleartwork@gmail.com to arrange a payment plan. 

I offer up to 4 nonrefundable payments spread over a maximum of 3 months with the first payment to be at least 20% to reserve the item. The last payment will include shipping costs. I am happy to accommodate what payments and amounts work best for you.

After agreeing on a plan and dates of payment, I will make custom listings for each payment prior to the due date. The item will be shipped after the last payment has been made with shipping costs.
Layaway is a courtesy service to you, therefore all prior completed payment(s) for layaway items are nonrefundable. 

CUSTOM ORDERS
I occasionally take a few amount of custom orders depending on my work load and current deadlines. Feel free to contact me if you have a request, but please note that there may be a 3-6 week wait time depending on the task and current schedule.
All custom orders require full payment before I start working on your piece. 
Note that I often request ring size suggestions on Instagram before starting a collection to best fit my customers’ needs. If you think you’ll want a ring from a collection I am currently working on, send me an Instagram message and I just may make one in your size!
