ABOUT MY PIECES
What technique do you use to make your jewelry?
My pieces are created with two different techniques: Electroforming and Silversmithing.
Electroforming is a complex process in which chemistry and electricity work together to deposit copper layers onto a piece of jewelry or other material. The creation of my pieces, from beginning to end, is a long and sometimes unpredictable process which can take between 3-5 days.
Do you take custom orders?
Absolutely! I am always delighted to receive Custom orders!
Please contact me to discuss your request or to share any images of what you would like me to create for you.
The piece of jewelry I received looks different from the picture!
You will receive a ring similar to the one in this listing, but it will differ slightly since all my raw stones are different in shape, size and color. All my raw stones are natural and non-treated - you might see flaws or inclusions in them - this is perfectly normal - Look at them as birthmarks! This is why I call my pieces "Perfectly imperfect" ! 😊
Electroforming is an unpredictable technique, and I never know how my pieces will come out. Some come out with current lines, bumps, grooves, pits or uneven plating, but be assured that I always make sure to send a piece when I am 100% satisfied with the final look.
If you still have issues concerning your piece, please refer to my Returns and Exchange Policy.
My ring doesn't fit me! Can I have it resized?
The answer is NO. Electroformed rings cannot be resized, so when you are about to make your purchase, you must be 100% certain of your ring size.
If you ring doesn't fit you once you've received it, you will need to have a new ring made to your correct size - at 50% off the original price. You must contact me within three (3) days of delivery and return the ring in its original package within ten (10) days.
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs.
Do you offer gift wrap?
Yes! All my pieces will arrive gift wrapped in a lovely handmade box and ready to give as a gift!
Can I include a note with my order?
Absolutely! Just add your note in the comments section at checkout. It will be handwritten, so please keep it short & sweet!

MATERIALS AND CARE
How should I care for my jewelry?
To maintain the finish on your jewelry pieces and protect the raw stones, you should take off your piece when bathing, showering, when handling cleaning household products, before putting on hand cream, while sleeping or when exercising.
Store in a cool, dry place - Your Moondrop Creations jewelry box works great for storage! Gently clean with the microfiber cloth that is provided with your purchase.
Is the jewelry nickel-free?
Totally! I use nickel-free metals like Sterling silver, Argentium and 14k Gold filled wire for the bands.
Are your gemstones genuine?
Yes they are! I purchase some of my natural gemstones from carefully selected suppliers around the world or I select my own stones by hand at the annual Tucson Gems & Minerals show.
Can you replate my piece of jewelry?
If your piece needs replating within 6 months of receiving it, I will re-plate it for free. Past 6 months, the replating fee is $40US.
Can I visit your studio or pick up my order?
Unfortunately, as much as I'd love to meet you, my studio is not set up as a showroom and I cannot accommodate visitors.
Can I select my stones before purchase?
I'd be happy to send you pictures of my gemstones for you to choose, but only after you've placed your order.
Do you do wholesale orders?
Unfortunately, I am currently unable to do wholesale orders due to a large volume of retail orders.
