most exciting part
Placing a request means you have agreed on all terms & conditions stipulated here.
We advise you to start by either filling in the order form on our website, or writing us directly at email@example.com.
In case of emergency, (if you are in a hurry with your order), feel free to use our business Whats’app
number +40745386367. We kindly ask you to not abuse this line.
We have also created a quiz for you, in order to help us better understand your personality and your aesthetic views. It is optional and you can find it embedded in the Order Form page.
GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER
After placing this request, and/or filling in the quiz, one of our customer service colleagues will contact
you to confirm it and connect you to the designer for starting the process. Depending on your request,
we will either schedule a video call or simply continue in writing. This process takes about 24-48 hours.
VIDEO CALLS & PERSONAL CONSULTANCY
This step is necessary to better understand you, your creative view and taste.
You may choose to skip this step but we highly recommend to take it. It usually takes up to 1,5 hours, of which the first hour is free.* It is a great experience, you’ll see.
* first hour of consultancy if free only on your first order ever.
Once we’ve established our design, our creative mind will need up to 5 working days to sketch your desired jewellery (depending on the amount of work we/they are loaded with). May it be a drawing or a simulation, it should reach you in the following work week.
all the stuff you didn’t know
and were shy to ask
As soon as you agreed on the final design, (which includes 1 correction) the sketch will be sent to production. Depending on the desired material, production will take as follows:
Silver — up to 10 working day manufacture time
Gold — up to 20 days manufacture time
Shipping — up to 5 working days
That brings us to a total of roughly 3 weeks for silver and over 4 weeks for gold.
Please keep this in mind when placing a custom-made order.
Very important details!
There may be the case of the production company’s setting a minimum order of 20 pieces.
That’s why sometimes, we couple more orders and then send them for manufacturing. Either way
we will try to keep it as short as possible.
We reserve the right to change the prices every few months. Every customised order requires a downpayment of 50% from the final cost. This downpayment will be invoiced in the beginning and subtracted from the final invoice.
The first hour of your first ever online workshop is free of charge. The extra calls hours will be charged
with a price of 0,5 euro/minute.

1. either have a clear idea what you want or fill in the quiz
2. calculate your budget forehand
3. Deadline — keep in mind the production timeline
4. Delivery address

In the fortunate case you will want to recycle your own jewellery.
These are the steps to follow:
Please weigh your old jewellery. If it’s enough material, you’ll have to ship it to our manufacturer. Shipping costs are covered by us. When shipping, please opt for insurance. You will be notified per e-mail regarding confirmation of shipment.
Once it reached our manufacturers, they will melt it, clean it and cast your desired piece.
We encourage gold recycling so you benefit of a 5% discount from our fee.
