I specialize in handmade jewelry, made individually with passion and precision in San Francisco. Contrary to mass-produced, commercial jewelry, I craft each piece to order; the time needed to design and fabricate it will depend greatly on its complexity. If you already have a ring in mind, the design process will be brief; if you are unsure, it will be more protracted. Designing your ring is a fun, collaborative stage of discovery, so I urge customers to provide more lead-time in order to enjoy it without the stress of an imminent date.
Once you have deliberated and decided on your final design, the fabrication process begins. While each piece will vary in its degree of difficulty, in general, simple rings can take as little as a couple weeks to make, while complicated ones with elaborate gem-setting and engraving can take approximately six weeks from when the design is determined.
Attention to detail and dedication to quality should not be rushed; the beauty of handmade jewelry is a luxury that rewards your patience. However, please let me know if you need an item more quickly and I will do my utmost to accommodate your deadline. Rest assured, I will be in close contact throughout the planning and fabrication of your ring, sending you updates and photos throughout, so you will be fully aware of its progress as it’s being made, as well as its estimated shipping date.
Domestic USPS Priority Mail and UPS 2nd Day delivery for engagement rings and wedding bands are both free; overnight UPS and Fed-Ex will incur a $25 shipping surcharge.
International orders are subject to additional costs depending on the customer’s location, and will ship either USPS Priority Mail Express International or FedEx International with customer responsible for incurring any insurance/ customs/ duties fees.
