Our dispatch times vary depending on what you are ordering and if we will be making your jewellery to order. If your order is a design we keep in stock then we will dispatch it within a few days of your order being placed. If you need your order to be with you quickly then please contact us before placing your order and we’ll let you know if we can get it to you quicker. We’ll always try to if possible. We are a small business and we have a very young family so it isn’t always possible to dispatch orders immediately. Once we have completed your order, we will update your order status and this notification will be received as an email. Emails can slip into junk mail so please do check your ‘other’ folder.
*We’re really sorry but some orders are currently taking longer than normal to be dispatched due to a wee backlog following a period of staff shortages. Please see below for further details which apply to order timeframes unless otherwise arranged before placing your order. Please always feel welcome to get in touch.*
Some of our gold & platinum pieces can take 4 – 6 weeks to make to order. Please just get in touch as we may not be required to make your gold or platinum piece to order.
We usually have silver jewellery pieces ready to be disatched as well as the jewellery listed in our ‘other products‘ section and the range on our ‘gift‘ page is also ready to be dispatched. We do make a small selection of our designs in gold which can be dispatched quickly, although most of our gold jewellery is made to order.

We usually have our Celtic rings available in silver but these do almost always require to be re-sized which, during normal times, takes us a few days to one week. Our oxidised finish takes a little longer. *Edit. Please be aware that our current timeframe is 2-3 weeks.*
