Orders $50 and above receive free shipping in the U.S.
International orders receive the equivalent discount of $5.50!

I wish I could charge less for shipping but Canada Post has high rates. These rates are actually LESS than what it really costs me to ship.

I cover part of your shipping!


  U.S. shipping: Canada Post charges a lot for delivery so, even if these shipping fees seem high, I am actually charging you less than what it really costs me to ship.

  Canadian shipping: As with U.S. shipments, I am actually charging you less than what it really costs me to ship. I prefer to keep my rates reasonable but, when it comes to "small packets" (not letters), Canada Post charges more for shipping within Canada than to other countries. I know it's strange, but it's true — just ask your local post office. All orders within Canada ship Expedited.

I hope that helps explain my fees. Thanks!


When and how are the rings sent?


Your package goes in the mail either the same day or the next day, depending on the time of day that payment is received (I tell you in your receipt). My customers usually receive their rings within 5 to 12 business days — sometimes, even those who live outside of North America. Please allow more time if you live outside a major metropolitan area or outside of North America.

Items are shipped regular air mail. If you'd like insurance/tracking or faster delivery, read below.


How are the rings packed?


I use secure but no-frills packing to reduce waste and save you needless shipping costs. Rings are sent in small bubble mailers; the packets are quite small, so don't worry if you have only a tiny PO box. I don't include a printed invoice or note because I do everything via email — it saves paper and reduces waste! This means that if you're shipping as a gift, your name will not appear anywhere, so please contact me to make arrangements if you'd like to change that.

Please note that all small packets shipped outside of Canada will bear a customs declaration including description and dollar value of the package contents.


Xpresspost - fast delivery & tracking


If you'd like faster delivery, you can opt for Xpresspost, which also comes with tracking. To major U.S. cities, the delivery time is normally 4-8 business days, depending on your location.

Add the Xpresspost upgrade to your cart here (US/Canada only).

Within Canada, the default is expedited shipping but you can upgrade with the link above.

Express service to all other countries is via EMS, which is at least $50. Please contact me to arrange.


Customs Duties


Duty, if any, will be paid by the customer. (Canadian customers never pay duty on orders shipped within Canada.)
