Returns & Exchanges:
"Choose Your Size" Rings and Custom orders are NOT returnable or eligible for exchanges. These items are considered made-to-order and are crafted to the customer's specifications. It is the customer's responsibility to provide accurate information at the time of purchase.

Important Note Regarding Ring Sizes:
Wide ring bands may need to be made 1/4 - 1/2 ring size larger to ensure a comfortable fit. Providing an accurate ring size is the responsibility of the customer. This shop can not be held responsible for "made to order" rings that are accurate to the size requested, but do not fit. If you are unsure of your ring size, please have a nearby jeweler take a measurement for you.
Requesting Ring Band Changes:
Ring settings are not modifiable, however, you are welcome to select an alternate band design. Similar width bands are priced the same. Selecting a wider band may require price adjustment that will be invoiced after the order, via PayPal.
To request a band change, please do one (or more) of the following WITHIN 2 HOURS of the order. Change requests received after 2 hours may not be possible to accommodate.
