Ordering and Shipping
How long will my jewelry take to ship?
All jewelry is lovingly made to order. Most items will ship within 7 business days or sooner of when order is placed. If there may be a delay we will contact you immediately. Bridal orders take 3-4 weeks to ship.
How is my order shipped?
All jewelry is shipped USPS priority mail with tracking at no additional charge. Purchases over $200 are also insured. If you have selected UPS 2nd day or overnight, please note that the jewelry still needs to be made. Once the jewelry is finished it will then ship 2nd day or overnight. Items shipped 2nd day or overnight are insured through a third party company but will arrive via UPS. The third party insurance company is very strict and there is NO WAY to waive signature once the item has shipped. Only after a third delivery attempt has been made may it be picked up at your local UPS facility. Therefore, someone must be available to sign for the package at the address given at point of delivery. No exceptions.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes. We ship to many countries. Please contact us for a shipping quote before placing your order.
Do you gift wrap?
Your item(s) will arrive individually packaged in custom Sarah Swell logo boxes ready for gift giving and will include a personal thank you note. If you would like the note to include a short personal message, please contact us after you order with your request.
Do you offer wholesale pricing?
We do work with wholesale accounts. Please contact us for line sheets and terms.
How do I care for my jewelry?
We recommend gently washing your pieces with unscented, clear dish soap and a soft toothbrush as desired. This is all you should need to brighten up silver and make diamonds sparkle. We strongly advise against polishing cloths and dips as they deposit residue onto the metal. Never use any type of chemical on oxidized silver or a matte surface as it can change the unique finish. Do not wear jewelry where chemicals are present, such as a pool or hot tub.
