FantaSea Jewelry is not responsible for lost packages or customs duties and fees. In the event a package is lost, a claim for insurance will be filed and upon settlement of the claim, we will replace the lost item or issue a refund.
In-stock necklaces and earrings are returnable within 14 days of receipt for a full refund of the purchase price, not including the shipping costs. Jewelry must be in new condition and returned in the original packaging. Please contact us before you send your return.
Custom pieces, special orders and sale items are not returnable.
We do accept requests for custom work, with the exception of December and February. Due to the higher volume of orders in these months, we cannot accept any requests for custom work at that time. Email the details of your custom request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Custom work times vary depending on the details of the piece and the method used to create it. On average, a custom order will take at least 4-6 weeks. Simple customizations such as a request for an item with a different gemstone or in a different size can usually be done quickly and may ship in 1-2 weeks. Special and custom orders are not returnable. Read more about our custom process here: https://fantaseajewelry.com/pages/custom-design
We recommend storing your jewelry in a fabric lines jewelry box, individually, to avoid items scratching one another. Sterling silver is best stored in ziplock bags when not being worn as exposure to the air and elements will accelerate the natural oxidizing of the metal (tarnishing). Karat gold also tarnishes over time, but not to the extent that silver does.
Most jewelry can be cleaned with a soft toothbrush and dish soap and warm water. Be careful of older jewelry with gemstones or pieces with many small stones as stones may become loose with wear and can be loosened during cleaning. Allow jewelry to dry and polish with a soft cloth or polishing cloth.
If there is a quality issue or defect in your piece upon receipt, please contact us immediately. We do stand behind the quality of our work and will work with you to repair the item.
If your jewelry needs repair in the first 6 months after purchase, we will repair it at no charge to you (shipping charges are not included, customer pays for shipping). After 6 months has passed, we will repair all of our jewelry for a fee, which is often less than a typical jewelry repair shop. Contact us in the event your piece needs a repair or sizing and we will advise you on your best option.
We offer a full repair, re-size, re-stringing and re-finishing service for all our products, after 6 months this is done for a fee. We STRONGLY recommend that you have all gemstone jewelry inspected for security and integrity every 6 months if worn frequently. If you are on St. Croix and stop by the studio, we will do this for you for free!
