MONTHLY “INNER CIRCLE” UPDATES + VIP SHOPPING
What is VIP Shopping?
VIP shopping happens twice a month with our “one of a kind” shop updates. To get access to these items and to be notified about any shop updates you must be on our mailing list. To sign-up to mailing list you can simply pop your info into the pop-up on our site or at the bottom of our page. Pleases note that website “memberships” and “VIP shopping” are separate things, so if you want access to both you must sign-up for both.
When do monthly updates happen?
‘One of a kind” shop updates happen twice a month. To access these you will need to be on our mailing list. Dates for these updates will be on our announcement bar on our website, as well as in our Instagram profile. Sneak peeks are posted on Instagram and Facebook as well as in our stories on Instagram.
How can I shop the newest pieces?
As mentioned above, these updates happen twice a month and are only accessible via our VIP shopping page. You need to be on our mailing list and ready to shop at the time they go live.
How does VIP shopping work?
Items in each update will be in the VIP section for 1hr and after that time all remaining pieces will be moved to the main site. Updates typically sell out within the first 2 hrs so you need to be on the list to access our secret shopping page and the updates when it goes live.
How will I know when new items are coming?
The best way to know what’s going to be in our updates is to follow us on socials. We post all sneak peeks in our stories and in our feed posts the week of each update and a sneak peek and details email is always sent the day before a release.

Once your item is shipped, the control is out of our hands. If you have questions about your shipment after it has left our studio you will need to check tracking and then call USPS/UPS or visit your local office.

Please contact us if you need to file a claim.
NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS / Customs Fees:
In many cases, your country may impose customs/import fees on items shipped from the US. These charges are unavoidable and we have absolutely no control over when or how much they charge. If you are an international customer, please check with your country's guidelines and fees before placing an order as we will not cancel an order based on these charges. We also will not change or embellish our customs forms as that is illegal.

I ordered a ring but its the wrong size, what can I do?
It is up to you as the customer to make sure you are ordering the right size ring as all sales are final. If you have questions about sizing you are always welcome to contact us to ask. If this was an issue on our end, we will need to wait to get it in to double check the sizing, if it was our mistake we will fix it free of charge and will refund the shipping you paid to get it to us. However if we determine, the sizing issue was on your end, please read below.
Wrong size on a made-to-order item: If you ordered the wrong size by accident, you can exchange it for another size. There is a $25 restocking fee + Shipping and you are responsible to pay to get it back to us. It's a 2-3 week turn around time depending on availability.
Wrong size on a one-of-a-kind Ring: If you ordered a one of a kind ring from one of a our releases and its the wrong size you have 3 options. If it's just a little snug (1/4 size), we can see if its possible to hammer out the band, that can be done free of charge but you need to pay to get it back to us. If its the wrong size (1/2 size or higher) there is a $50 fee to resize it. If you don't want to keep it you are also able to exchange it for a $25 restocking fee and you will be issued a credit to use towards something else.

If you hit the little button and ask to be notified, you should receive an email at the time items are restocked. If you have a specific question about something, you are always welcome to contact us.
