Returns and cancellations for online orders are accepted under certain conditions. If there is a concern with your order please contact us within 5 days of delivery. Qualifying items must be shipped back within 7 days of delivery.
Requests for order cancellations must be made within 24 hours of purchase.
We cannot accept exchanges.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, we cannot accept returns for custom or personalized orders NOR items on sale.
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. We highly recommend that returns are also insured for the total value. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. A refund will be issued via the same method as the original payment once the returned item has been received in its original condition in the specified time frame.
Lefler DesignStudio welcomes custom design orders. We will work together to create a piece of jewelry unique to you. As such, there will be a $50 non-refundable design fee that will be applied to the total cost of the piece when purchased. All custom orders require a NON-REFUNDABLE down-payment of approximately half of the purchase price once we are ready to begin construction on your special piece of jewelry. The remaining balance will be paid prior to shipment. Please note completed custom orders are non-returnable/non-refundable.
Because your custom piece is handmade, most designs can be made with your stone and/or size preference. Most orders will require a minimum of 2 to 4 weeks, depending on our current schedule, for completion. We will quote you a shipping window when we are ready to begin construction on your piece. Feel free to call or email with any questions about current timelines. We do our best to accommodate any deadlines, so please let us know if you have a need-by date.
Orders cancelled while the order is in process may be charged a cancellation fee of 15%. Orders cannot be cancelled if already shipped. See section on Custom Orders for additional information.
Because our jewelry is handcrafted to your specifications and colors, we regret that we cannot issue refunds for reasons other than defects in production.
If there is a problem with size, length, or if anything is not as you expected, please contact us within 24 hours of receipt, and we will do our best to correct the problem.
Sales tax is automatically applied to your order in accordance with North Carolina regulations. (Last updated on 01/01/2019)

If the need arises, any such repairs will be made for free during the warranty period. The warranty does not include normal wear and tear, or damage incurred from an accident, improper handling or storage. We do not cover strike damage, such as dropping. Any repairs after the warranty or due to damage or normal wear and tear will incur a fee.
Please see our Jewelry Care page for tips on how to protect your jewelry.
If your jewelry is received damaged, please notify us within 24 hours upon receipt, and retain all packing materials in case a claim must be filed with the carrier. DO NOT attempt to repair your jewelry yourself - doing so will void our warranty.

Never wear jewelry in chlorinated water or when working with household chemicals. These chemicals can react with the metal, stones/pearls and/or degrade solder joints. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures, can permanently damage or discolor your gold jewelry.
Avoid dents and scratches by removing jewelry, especially rings and bracelets, when doing rough work or working with chemicals, including household cleaning chemicals. Chemicals can ruin finishes, solder joints and damage stones and pearls.
Remove jewelry before showering. Soap can cause a film to form, making it appear dull and dingy.
Avoid dip cleaners for jewelry with gemstones/pearls or pieces with a patina. It is also recommended that ultrasonic cleaners, steamers and other at home cleaning chemicals be avoided.
Routinely wiped down with a polishing cloth designed for silver use such as Goddard’s Silver Polishing Cloths and/or cleaning with diluted mild soap in warm water.
Proper care of your jewelry is essential to maintain its integrity and condition. Please follow these recommendations to protect your fine jewelry.
