Shipping is by FedEx second day delivery, with insurance, payable by purchaser. Arrangements can be made for overnight delivery or hand delivery in Manhattan, at the purchaser’s expense. Shipping is free for orders of $1,000 and more.
Made By Hand
Each piece is either entirely built by hand or cast in limited productions and is finished, set and polished by hand. Many pieces are available to ship within one or two days, while other pieces may take up to four weeks to ship. Please allow up to six weeks for custom or engraved pieces, although we will do our best to ship sooner.
Slight variations in appearance and length can occur, since the jewelry is made by hand. Gemstones also vary slightly in color, but the quality will always be the highest, and gemstones are selected carefully for consistency and quality.
Sourcing From Known Vendors, Respecting People and Planet
Christina is a former human rights attorney, and is all too familiar with the ravages of unregulated industries, ‘blood diamonds’ and unfair labor practices. Christina uses Fairmined or "recycled" gold and silver (according to SCS and the refiner), and purchases gemstones from known vendors. Select gemstones are mine-to-market, with a traceable link to artisanal miners. She is on the board of, and a member of, Ethical Metalsmiths. The word "recycled" is problematic in gold sourcing, and Christina is an advocate for a truly traceable, transparent and accountable gold supply chain.
