      It is the buyer’s responsibility to provide an accurate ring size when purchasing rings. If you are unsure of your ring size, please have a jeweler measure your finger to determine your correct ring size (U.S. Standard).

         SEVERAL TYPES OF GOODS ARE EXEMPT FROM BEING RETURNED:

        • Because custom orders/ made to order items  and personalized items including rings in your size are unique (as they are made exclusively for you), there will be no cancellations, returns or refunds unless the product was damaged upon arrival.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

        DAMAGED PRODUCT UPON ARRIVAL:

        If an item is damaged during shipping, we'll be happy to help file a claim with the shipper.

        To settle a claim, all shippers require pictures of the damaged item, along with pictures of the packaging within 48 hours of arrival for a refund. Please keep all boxes, outer packaging, etc. until your claim is settled. 

        Please contact me within 24 hours from delivery time by email. 

        You will receive FULL REFUND after insurance claim has cleared.

        IMPORTANT TIPS regarding damaged item on arrival:

        • If your package shows any signs of damage or rough handling, ask the delivery person to note the condition BEFORE signing for your package.
        • Most carriers will provide you with a copy of a damage report, if so, you can sign for the reception. If not, it is critical that you ensure that the damage is noted in the electronic signature device.
        • Keep in mind that most carriers require a signature to "confirm the reception and condition" of your package.
        • Failing to follow this tip can seriously impact your shipping insurance or at the very least, prolong the delay in receiving the shipping insurance payment required to complete any refund.
        • Take photos! of your package before opening and of any damage to the packaging inside the shipping envelope.

        Our return policy lasts 10 days. If 11 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange:

        • There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted (if applicable)
        • Book with obvious signs of use
        • CD, DVD, VHS tape, software, video game, cassette tape, or vinyl record that has been opened
        • Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error
        • Any item that is returned more than 10 days after delivery

        DEFECT ITEM RECEIVED

        I inspect my work carefully before they ship to ensure the quality is commendable and packaged nicely to reduce the chance of any mishaps.

        Should you receive a defective damaged product, take a picture and send it to Cosmicdevas at gmail.com  as soon as you received the product within 24 hours. I will be happy to assist you.


        REFUNDS

        • Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
        • If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.

        MADE TO ORDER/ CUSTOM ORDERS

        As a general rule, we do not accept cancellations on custom/made to order items because once your order has been placed, we begin to work on it immediately. If you have a question or concern after placing an order, please reach out to us immediately at cosmicdevas@gmail.com. .

        In the event we waive our cancellation policy, please expect a fee of 30-80% of your product total, depending on how far along we got on your order. The fee will be deducted from your refund and processed in the same form as your original payment. If your order has already been shipped, we cannot accommodate a cancellation. 

         CUSTOM ORDERS

        Custom orders must be discussed up front before making a purchase. I reserve the right to reject any custom order that I do not feel fits within my production time frame or capabilities. I respond to definitive and well thought out custom requests with specific imagery and design concepts and/or with visuals for reference promptly before loosely developed ideas without any direction. Custom orders will accrue additional fees for the time spent discussing and designing the piece in addition to production and material costs. 

        INSURANCE:

        I do insure most packages through a 3rd party insurer. In order to refund or replace an item not received the insurer has certain requirements including: "The recipient, or for loss claims, the intended recipient, MUST assist in the claims process. They must sign an affidavit stating damage or non-receipt".

        Therefore, as I'm sure you understand, I will need your cooperation and will be more than happy to refund/replace for lost in the mail merchandise when I have the affidavit from you.

        They also require that the recipient keep all packaging for damaged goods and may require photos. There may be a waiting period for lost packages. Thank you for your cooperation should the unthinkable happen.


        LATE OR MISSING REFUNDS (IF APPLICABLE)
        If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again.
        Then contact your credit card company, it may take some time before your refund is officially posted.

        Next contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.

        If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at cosmicdevas@gmail.com.


        ITEM NOT RECEIVED

        If your tracking states your package has been 'delivered' but you do not have it, or if your tracking has stopped please notify your local post office immediately. CALL YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE and inquire with your tracking number. It is likely your postal carrier will know where it was placed. The faster contact is made with them the more likely they are to find it.

        We are not responsible for theft or errors by your local postal carriers. Please inquire in your area.

        Once a package has been marked delivered, it is considered delivered. Seller is not responsible for stolen packages.

        Please check with others living in your home and nearby neighbors :

        • Spouses/roommates
        • Back door, side door, garage
        • Neighbors
        • Apt. manager's office, condo sales office, security desk, doorman, etc.
        • Check mail locker
        • Check to see if it's being held at the post office
        • Speak to mail carrier
        • Ask local USPS to provide GPS coordinates of delivery

        before assuming the package has been stolen. More often than not an item can be tracked down and found. Otherwise file a mail theft report with the postal inspector's office. Also  file a theft report with your local police. 

        LOST PACKAGES

        The USPS (United States Postal Service) does not consider a package lost until 30 days have passed for U.S. buyers and 6 weeks for International buyers. If the amount of time stated above has passed and your package has been deemed lost by the USPS, please contact us asap for insurance claims.

        UNCLAIMED PACKAGES
        Refusing to accept a package, not claiming a package in person at the destination post office or failing to reschedule delivery with the destination post office constitutes an unclaimed package. Packages deemed undeliverable will NOT be refunded.

        If the package is returned, buyer accepts all costs incurred to reship. If the package becomes lost or damaged during its failed delivery attempt to pick up the package at the buyers local post office, the buyer accepts full responsibility.

        INCORRECT SHIPPING ADDRESS
        Seller will not be responsible for packages sent to an incorrect address provided by the buyer. Packages deemed not deliverable due to an incorrect address will NOT be refunded.

        If the package is returned, buyer accepts all costs incurred to reship as well as the cost of return postage fees for undeliverable packages sent via First Class, First Class International, Priority Mail International Flat Rate Envelopes and Small Flat Rate Priced Boxes or any other carrier.

        If the package becomes lost or damaged during its failed delivery attempt to the wrong address, the buyer accepts all responsibility.
