Please keep in mind that I ship from Vancouver, BC (that's the SW corner of Canada, a 2½ hour drive north of Seattle); in general, items will ship faster the closer you are to me.

A Note About Sending Gifts

Plan to have the ring shipped to you first.
I recommend that you have me ship the ring to you so that you can then pass the ring on to the recipient (if possible) since all shipments outside of Canada must bear a customs declaration noting:
  – a description of the package contents
  – the dollar value of the contents
If you're okay with that, by all means, include the recipient's mailing address so I can ship directly to her or him!

Rings ship without a paper invoice or receipt (both are done via email). If you need the package to include a note saying who the gift is from, please email to let me know immediately after payment.

Don't know their size?

In general, for a woman, size 3 is a pinky ring, size 5 is small, size 7 is medium and size 9 is large. Please refer to the sizing page for plenty more on figuring out the right size for your lucky gift recipient.

Have more questions?

If you didn't read it here, it's probably in the FAQ. Please be sure to read it if you have any inquiries.
