Placing an Order:  When you add an item to your shopping bag, you may either continue shopping or proceed to the checkout.  Once we have received your order, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order.  This email is not an order confirmation but rather recognition that we have received your requested order.  Please note that this does not guarantee the availability of the merchandise and that all orders are subject to availability.  Although we make every effort to feature in stock pieces on our Site, occasionally we may sell out of featured items.  In the very unlikely event that we are unable to comple
te your order, you will be notified via email within 5 business days and will not be charged for orders that cannot be fulfilled.  Once an order has been placed, we are not able to modify or cancel your order.  We reserve the right to decline your order in the event that we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, there are shipping restrictions for a particular item, or we do not have the item in stock.  Items in your shopping bag are not reserved and may be purchased by other clients.

Return and Exchange Policy:  If you are unhappy with an item that you have purchased from us online, you may return it for store credit within 7 days of receipt.  We only accept returns for purchases made from our online shop. We cannot accept returns of custom orders or international orders.  Items must be returned with their original packaging and in perfect, unworn condition.  Exchanges may only be made for items of equal value.  To return or exchange an item, please email us at dawn@dwjewelrydesigns.com for a return authorization number.  Items cannot be accepted for a return without an RA number.  The customer is responsible for shipping costs on returned items. Please consider insuring the package being sent back.  DW Jewelry Designs is not responsible for items lost or damaged during transit.

Payment:  We currently accept payments by Visa, MasterCard, American Express or debit cards with any of these listed.  Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon order confirmation.  In filling out the payment requirements, you confirm that you are an authorized user of the credit/debit card.  All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer.  If the issuer of the credit/debit card rejects authorization of payment to DW Jewelry Designs, we will not be held liable for any delay or non-delivery.

Sales Tax:  DW Jewelry Designs does not charge sales tax for orders delivered in the United States with the exception of deliveries in the state of Georgia, in which applicable sales tax will be added to the order amount.

Shipping:  All orders ship USPS Priority Mail.  Once mailed, customers will typically receive their order within 4-6 business days, depending on where the package is being sent.  International orders will be handled differently and may take longer to arrive.
