Shipping, Returns and Care Info
All jewelry is mailed in a foil branded box or satin bag and ready for gift giving. Each item is made by hand to order and is processed in the order in which it it is received. As each piece is handmade and we are a small studio, orders may take up to 3 weeks if an item is out of stock. If an item is in stock and available, we will always try our best to ship with in 3 days. Your patience is always appreciated.
Our default shipping method is USPS First Class Mail with Tracking & Insurance for $8. USPS First Class Mail can take 2-6 business days (3 days average) to be delivered. You can upgrade to Priority Mail for $12 or Priority Express for $30. Priority Mail takes 1-3 days.
We also offer carrier-calculated UPS rates as well if you prefer over the USPS.
International orders are shipped default via USPS First Class International Mail. USPS estimates that international orders will arrive in 6-10 business days, but orders can sometimes be delayed for 3-4 weeks by customs. We also offer express options as well as DHL Worldwide Express. We will refund shipping overages. International buyers are responsible for paying any import fees or tariffs levied by their country. We cannot estimate what these fees will be as they vary by country. Once a package leaves the United States, we have no responsibility for it.
Dea Dia is not responsible for lost packages or items marked as delivered.
We want you to be happy with your purchase! While we inspect all items carefully before we ship, should an item show up broken or defective we will be glad to issue you a replacement. If this is the case, please let us know within 5 days of receiving your purchase.
We don't process refunds on items due to change of heart. We will however facilitate an exchange or issue store credit. Please understand, we are a small company and each piece of jewelry is made to order. The nature of working with raw stones and creating handmade means that no items are exactly alike, therefore they may vary slightly from the photos.
Please DO NOT return an item without first reaching out to us at email@example.com
Sale or customized items are FINAL SALE.
In the event of an exchange/credit, the customer is responsible for shipping costs involved in the returning of the item. Item must be sent back with original packaging and with receipt of purchase. Items returned/exchanged without prior notification will not be processed.
Should you request an order to be cancelled after more than 12 hours have passed, your order will be subject to a cancellation fee of $20 or 25% of the order, whichever is less.
Due to the delicate nature of handmade jewelry and the use of vintage materials and natural stones, Dea Dia jewelry is fragile and should be handled with the utmost of care.
Please avoid showering, bathing or swimming while wearing your jewelry. Opals, especially, should be kept away from water and dried as soon as possible should they come in contact since they are a very porous stone and water can cause them to change colors.
Since some of our metal is raw, untreated brass, bronze or silver, it will develop a patina over time. We believe that patina adds to the unique character of jewelry. Jewelry should be stored in a dry environment or in a plastic bag to prevent oxidation. However, if you wish to remove the patina you can clean with a jewelry polishing cloth (we recommend Sunshine cloths) or you can drop in white vinegar for 30 seconds to brighten, rinse with fresh water and then dry and polish. Please take care of avoiding stones when using this method.
Please note, our brass is a mixture of 75% copper and 25% zinc and is lead and nickel free. Many people experience green discoloring on their skin from brass. This is due to the metals mixing with your particular oils and ph levels. This reaction is harmless and will wash off.
If you don't like the discoloration, we suggest you order gold plated, sterling silver or solid gold. To minimize this, you can periodically paint the inside of your brass ring with clear nail polish or lacquer, avoid mixing with moisture and sweat, and and take off before going to bed or applying lotions or oils.
Gold plated jewelry should not be polished with a compound or jewelry polishing cloth as this may wear the finish down over time. Instead you can wipe clean with a soft damp cloth followed by a dry cloth.
Free repairs are offered on jewelry purchased within 6 months. After that a small fee may be charged. You are also welcome to send back any jewelry for cleaning and/or polishing for a $15 charge. Please note, herringbone chains cannot be repaired if they become kinked. Only the clasps can be repaced.
