Are all items Handmade and Made to Order?

Yes! Everything in our shop is skillfully handcrafted on a per order basis. As soon as your order is placed, your item/s will be put into our production queue and handcrafted to order. We prefer to create made to order so that each order receives the utmost care and attention that it deserves, materials are fresh and new and each piece is made specifically for the one who will love and treasure it upon it's arrival.

How long does it take for each order to be handcrafted?

It truly depends on the item. Currently as we have experienced a higher then usual amount of orders, we are processing items on a 1-4 week turnaround.

Smaller items like hair pins, small hair combs, necklaces, back jewelry, earrings and simple veils will ship within 1-2 weeks of ordering. More detailed and delicate items such as juliet veils, lace trimmed veils, crowns, shoulder jewelry and intricate headpieces will be processed within a 3-4 week turnaround.

My wedding or special event is quickly approaching, do you accept rush orders?

Yes we do, most items can be rushed. Depending on how quickly the items is required and the intricacies of the design, a flat rate fee of $35 might be applied to the rush order. Please contact us prior to purchasing to ensure that we are able to accommodate your rush request. If a rush order is requested AFTER the item/s have been ordered, a $35 rush fee will be applied automatically. This is to be purchased within 24 hours of receiving or the order may be cancelled.

What Currency is your shop listed in?

All prices are listed in Canadian Dollars, however we have a currency converter at the top right hand corner for USD, GBP, Euro and AUS. If you don't see your currency, we find the best online currency converter is www.xe.com

Do you offer custom orders?

Yes! We do offer custom/bespoke services.  We currently have a few openings every month for truly custom work. Custom Designs that are completely new designs based on either email or in-person consultations with us and the client that involve sketches, sourcing of new materials, creating new designs completely from scratch, etc start at $300cad and up.

I saw one of your designs online, but can not find it in your store. Can you still create it for me?

Possibly! Sometimes we have had to discontinue items as the materials are no longer available, sometimes an item is from a past collection and we have decided to no longer sell it online as we have so many beautiful new designs constantly being added, so needed to make some room. However if you please send us the image we would be happy to let you know if the design is still possible! If the materials are no longer available as shown, we can discuss alternative material options.

I saw a design that I loved on Pinterest from another designer, can you copy it for me?

No, we will not copy another designer's work. We pride ourselves in creating unique adornments and respect our fellow designers and industry colleagues. You are welcome to send us images for overall inspiration of the type of look you are going for, but know that we will use those images as inspiration only and handcraft something completely unique just for you. Please respect our decision to create, rather then duplicate.

Do you offer small changes to pre-existing designs?

Yes, we do! Most of our designs can be slightly altered in size and materials. A small alterations fee is charged to each item that is modified. Alterations and adjustments must be discussed and determined prior to purchase of the item. The fee will be added to the original cost of the design.

I love an item in your shop, but it's not available in a metal finish I want. Can you make it in other finishes?

We really pride ourselves in our selection and ability to offer various plated and real precious metal finishes to our customers. Some items are currently only offered in certain metals as that is what we have currently in stock. Depending on the item, we might be able to get the elements plated in silver, gold or rose gold so it doesn't hurt to ask! If available, these processes are more expensive, so we would provide to you a custom quote on these items in the requested finish.

What types of materials do you use?

All of our materials are new materials sourced from around the world. We pride ourselves in using only the highest quality materials. All materials are thoroughly inspected before being used on your design to ensure the highest quality possible. We use sterling silver, gold & rose gold filled elements, plated brass elements, imported tulles from Europe, geniune Austrian & Czech crystals, beads & pearls as well as real freshwater pearls. Each item listing details the fine materials used for that piece. We DO NOT substitute qualities from what is indicated on the listing and if for whatever reason we have to, we will contact you before processing the order.
