Zander's Creations

Policies, Terms & Conditions


Payment

Squarespace only allows their payments processed through stripe at the moment. If you prefer paypal, we also have an etsy shop which can accept paypal here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/zanderscreations

We must be paid in full before we ship anything out. Custom item requests typically require half down payment in order to start the order. The other half will be requested when we finish the piece and send you another invoice. 


Tax is applied to Arizona purchases.

Cancellations within 1-2 days of order date are allowed with no restocking fee. After that the restocking fee described above will be in effect. We start working on the orders shortly after receiving them so canceling causes us to receive unnecessary fees from our suppliers. Please make sure you want to purchase the item before proceeding with checkout.

Shipping

Shipping will be provided by United states postal service priority mail, unless another service is requested. Faster shipping is available.

Insurance is included with all shipments. If you need a cheaper shipping option via first class, or without insurance contact us for a quote. *Note* we can't give a refund for lost packages without insurance. Do so at your own risk. 

Please ensure your address is correct before placing orders. Returned packages may be re-shipped at a additional shipping fee.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: *Please note* Due to customs, your item may take an extended amount of time (Possibly up to 30 days or more) IN ADDITION to the time quoted to manufacture the piece. We cannot control customs, so please be sure you have plenty of time to receive your item. We DO NOT COVER customs fees, duties, etc. The shipping cost you pay is for transit of the package/insurance to the specified location you gave us. While we do pay for insurance where possible, some countries may be riskier to ship to than others and we have no control over that. Packages shipped to countries outside United Kingdom, Canada, or United States are shipped at your own risk.

*We also do not accept returns for international orders at this time*

We are not responsible for stone breakage and/or replacement after customer has received their piece. (Though we can replace stones at customers expense).
The cost would be the stone & a setting fee. 
Setting fee will be $20 for most non-diamond stones.
You will have to contact us for current stone pricing, and other fees for your specific item.

All products have a 60 day warranty. This warranty does not cover wear and tear and any plating that may be involved in the piece. This covers the structure of the metal, in the case it splits or breaks within that time. If the piece has other issues that are clearly Zander's Creations fault contact us with details and we may be able to help.

We can offer a periodical touch up of your piece just contact us for a current price. All pieces with stones should be periodically checked every 3-6 months at a local jeweler to ensure stones are still secure as normal wear may gradually cause them to become loose.
