💕NADEAN DESIGNS is not responsible for the postal service. Please consider purchasing INSURANCE.
All orders over $1000.00 include promotional shipping and insurance to the USA.
Should you require insurance on an item you have purchased below $1000.00, please contact me to set up this feature BEFORE PURCHASING so I can ensure that you are able to purchase insurance from the courier before I ship.
❤I cannot refund shipping costs in either direction ( out to you from my studio or back to me on returned items). For your security, please return any items with tracking and insurance.
International buyers-- Please DO NOT ask me to ship as a gift or decrease the value on the package. By doing so you are asking me to break the law. I will not do so.
For INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING, we charge a flat rate for FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL USPS which is $30.00 to Canada, Australia, and the UK. FIRST CLASS does NOT include tracking or insurance.
Most USPS FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL packages arrive within 7-10 days after shipping.
EXCEPTIONS ALMOST ALWAYS OCCUR DURING HOLIDAYS.
💙There is no tracking of FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL items and no claim should your item be lost or stolen.
💙There is NO TRACKING on FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL even though you will receive an LC tracking number-- I have been assured by the post office and from experience, there is no reliable tracking.
💜The fastest and most economical way to send your package WITH TRACKING is via USPS Priority EXPRESS with tracking- which needs to be calculated based on weight and is currently for 1 item about $60.00 to the UK.
You will be able to track the progress this way.
You can add insurance if the package is lost or stolen for a fee and then we can file a claim after one month. Please note NO CLAIMS are available on FIRST CLASS international shipping EVER.
💗💗💗 THIS CAN BE CONFUSING AS MANY CUSTOMERS TELL US "OH I ALWAYS GET A TRACKING NUMBER WITH FIRST CLASS. "
Rest assured that the "number" you receive with FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL is a CUSTOMS NUMBER and not a tracking number.
This LC "number "allows for some loose tracking. FROM EXPERIENCE, the package will stop tracking once it leaves the US and if stuck in customs it will be untraceable until delivered. 💙💙knock on wood💙💙 my overseas shipments shipped first class have always arrived- but occasionally have been significantly delayed in transit.
If you desire to track YOUR PACKAGE, and or the ability to file a claim, then YOUR package MUST be REGISTERED ( a one month delivery time minimum) or sent PRIORITY EXPRESS INTERNATIONAL ( $60 minimum).
💗💚To UPGRADE to either REGISTER your item or send PRIORITY XPRESS INTERNATIONAL in a box via USPS or a private Courier of your choice- PLEASE contact me immediately so that I can assist you in the process. I highly recommend one of these methods for cherished purchases.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE, WARRANTY AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS
BRACELETS- are high wear and if worn frequently need regular maintenance
We recommend restringing ALL bracelets every 6 months even if they appear to be intact and wearing well.
ROLL ON ROLL OFF do NOT pull
Lay flat when not in use.
Bracelets are exposed to wear and tear more than any other jewelry item. I recommend restringing every 6 months. For your first 6 months if the bracelet breaks, I replace at no charge to you.
Gemstone Necklaces, Bracelets and Earrings:
Lay flat when not in use.
I recommend having all BEADED and KNOTTED necklaces re-strung or knotted every year
Chain and wrap necklaces should be evaluated every 2 years for maintenance
💗GENERAL CARE FOR GEMSTONES
We love both Australian and Ethiopian opals!
Ethiopian Welo opals are beautiful and high grades have amazing color play. These newer mined opals ( versus Australian) are very porous and they absorb oils, make-up, lotions, tanning sprays, and salty sweat very easily. Do not shower or swim in these opals. Cleanse only with a microfiber cloth. They are truly beautiful but one must use extreme care to retain the opalescence and color play inherent in their nature. Avoid water, sweat, perfume and any lotions or oils coming in contact with the opals.
💗A NOTE ABOUT METALS:
We love MIXED METAL pieces!
If you do not want your metal to change color ( a natural process for silver- oxidation- unless rhodium plated- and even then over time the rhodium plating may wear off) , then I highly recommend either 14kg filled or solid gold.
VERMEIL is defined differently in the industry.
Here is how we define it:
14-24 karat gold overlay onto sterling silver over 2.5 microns in thickness. True vermeil is reflected always in pricing. It is an expensive process that only a few artisan vendors still offer on their precious metal findings. Older vermeil findings say 15 years or older are almost always true vermeil. I have some of these amazing vermeil beads in my collection in the studio so just ask should you be interested in using them.
GOLD PLATE - is gold plated onto a base metal ( content of gold or plating thickness unknown unless specified. the type of base metal is often not specified as well).
If you do not want any chance of the gold changing color or wearing off over time this is not a recommended choice, however we do carry a few "GOLD PLATED" items in our collections.
14kg FILLED OR 14/20 GOLD FILLED is a great alternative to solid 14kg at less than 1/2 the cost- and does not wear off like much of the gold plate. GOLD FILLED IS ALWAYS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN GOLD PLATING AND A HIGHER QUALITY CHOICE.
Gold FILLED products can be refined and so the gold itself has much more intrinsic value than gold plated brass or base metal.
We frequently use 14 karat gold filled, vermeil, and sterling silver .925 metals as well as Argentium silver.
We will always let you know in my listing description if the metal is base and plated.
We love SOLID rose GOLD or yellow gold either in 14 , 18 , 22 or 24karat. These high karat golds are a great investment when you want your item to last a lifetime and/or pass on to your children. Always expect a significant upgrade charge when using solid gold.
CARE FOR Gold & Silver
Most gold jewelry can be cleaned in a warm soap (non-film leaving dish soap-not antibacterial) and water solution using a soft brush. To dissolve grease or grime, you may use a non-abrasive, jewelry cleaner. Rinse the pieces thoroughly in warm water after cleaning. make sure to throughly dry and buff the jewelry with a soft cloth. There are also gold polishing cloths available.
Sterling Silver naturally tarnishes. when exposed to salt air tarnishing happens much more quickly. In order to maintain the shiny white appearance, using either a non- abrasive silver polishing cloth or a liquid silver cleaner can be used. When using any products to clean your jewelry make sure to rinse thoroughly with warm water.
💗💗💗When cleaning your metals use extra care to not have the gemstones come in contact with any of the cleaners especially the porous gemstones: pearl, opal, emerald, turquoise, amber, coral and onyx.**
We love custom orders when both parties are invested in the work and or we are given free design reign without a budget:)
Custom work can be very rewarding but is often quite demanding of our energy and time as well as yours.
Due to higher order volume, I am having to change my policy as of May 2016:
Custom orders will require a non- refundable deposit applied towards the purchase price of the finished work. I can also work by the hour for an hourly design fee.
Please be prepared to communicate your approximate budget and purchase the deposit for custom work at the time of your custom order request.
A custom order agreement may need to be reviewed and signed by both parties to initiate work.
Thank you for understanding.
My goal is for you to be delighted with your Nadean Designs purchase.
If you are not delighted, contact me within 72 hours of receiving your item. A refund or exchange is issued once the item is returned in its original condition and packaging less shipping.
Custom orders are NON-REFUNDABLE.
Rings are non-refundable.
Sale items are NON-REFUNDABLE

Any change from the original listing renders the item "CUSTOM".
If the item is damaged upon arrival please send a photo and I will work to replace your item quickly including all shipping costs.
Please send me correct measurements (ring/wrist)
Resizing can be done for a fair cost for labor and materials.

I do custom orders. I normally require a non-refundable deposit or a fee per hour design service to get started on labor intensive custom orders.
Length changes or stone substitutions are easily done on most items - buyer purchases before making any changes is always a requirement.
14 karat gold and higher karat gold are really the only items safe for swimming and showering in daily.
14 karat gold-filled, vermeil, sterling silver and rose gold-filled will usually all oxidize and change color over time.
Gold plated items will change color the fastest.
Ethiopian opals are porous and they will absorb body oils, lotions, makeup, and tanning sprays. Keep dry and away from these materials. Do not swim, garden, workout, or shower in your opals
Do not use any ultrasound, polishing cloths, or vibration type cleaners on opals.
For opals, it is best to gently clean with a microfiber cloth ( glass lens cleaner).
14k, gold-filled, and sterling items without gemstones, polishing cloths, and ultrasonic cleaners are safe.
The buyer is responsible for insurance on orders. Please contact us should you prefer insurance on your purchase.
