Back Orders - ETD's (Estimate Time of Delivery) When can I expect my order?
~Orders via website, email, post/mail, or telephone are shipped immediately, depending on availability.  While we diligently strive to fulfill all our orders as quickly and efficiently as possible, we cannot promise that the items featured in our collections are stocked at the time an order is placed. Please call us with stock inquiries before placing your order, if time is a consideration to you.  If the item you have ordered is not in stock when we receive your order, we will email and or contact you by telephone and let you know when we expect it.  That item will immediately be ordered from our manufacturers or artists, placed in our back-order list and will ship to you the day we receive it, unless we hear otherwise from you. Standard size items can take from 4 to 6 weeks for the artisans to produce. (During the Holiday season these may take longer.)  For Liquid Metal Jewelry items, all non-standard sizes are considered 'Special Order' sizes.  Gold plated pieces require additional processing as they take longer for the manufacturer to produce; generally 8 to 12 weeks.

~Objects of Beauty makes no guarantees regarding ETD dates.
Our manufacturers control the speed at which we can deliver to our customers.  They offer rough ETD's and will not give us definite dates.  We relax and know that they will come when they're ready.  It's best not to rush artisans!

Special Orders
~All non-standard Liquid Metal Jewelry sizes are considered 'Special Orders', and can take 8 to 12 weeks for the artisans to produce. If we don't have a specific items you're interested in, we'll suggest alternatives that we have in your size.  We stock everything from extra small to XXX large in our best sellers and have never found a person we couldn't fit!

Acknowledgment of special orders
~Customers placing special orders are asked to acknowledge our terms, via email. Special orders must be paid for in advance and are non-refundable and non-exchangeable once the order has been placed with us. 

Sizing and Size Guarantees
~Liquid Metal Bracelets are measured from tip to tip.  Stand a ruler up on end and hold the tip of the bracelet up to the top (at the center of the snap).  Let bracelet fall to find the size.  You will lose one half inch at the snap overlap.  Please allow one half inch for movement.  If a bracelet's standard size measures 7.5", add one inch to your wrist size to find the proper fit.  If the bracelet's standard size measures 7.75", you will add an extra 1-1/4" to your wrist size.

~Liquid Metal Jewelry special orders, as with all items on this site are guaranteed to measure within .25", as per the manufacturer.

We are happy to give advice, but do not offer refunds, nor do we pay for the exchange shipping (either direction) on items we order for you.  In most cases, we cannot return them to the manufacturer.

~Special orders must be paid for in advance and are non-refundable and non-exchangeable once the order has been placed.

International Orders & VAT Taxes
~Customers please be aware of your country's VAT and local tax practices. These can range from 30% to sometimes 100% of purchase price (especially in the UK since Brexit in 2020) and can be a very unpleasant surprise when your package is held by them until you pay it. VAT taxes are determined independently by each country. We don't agree with this practice of ransom, but it's out of our hands. That being said, we do not, under any circumstances issue refunds for said taxes.
