What is your warranty on bridal rings?
Our team is composed of master jewelers, we stand behind our creations and we are committed to excellence. This is why we offer a lifetime warranty on any diamond bridal pieces. In the event that any breakage due to defects in the gold material or the crafting process should occur - the piece will be repaired or replaced with the same design. This warranty does not cover damage as a result of abuse, misuse, loss or theft. In the event a diamond or gemstone is broken due to negligence we will offer a fair price to have it replaced.
All bridal items require a signature on delivery. If you are not present at the time of delivery, the postal carrier will leave a note to have you choose another delivery time or have you pick up the package at your nearest post office.
Tell me about your sustainability practices.
Nora has personally invested in earth-ai.com. An organization that is building their own mines as well as cutting edge technology that is designed to limit the impact mining has on the environment.
Do you have a shop we can visit?
We operate and ship your pieces entirely out of our studio in Scottsdale. We have not invested in physical retail locations as an effort to maintain a small footprint and offer you fair prices without the traditional 8x retail markup. We sell directly to you and maintain focus on sustainability, artistry and excellence in craftsmanship.
Tell me about gemstone certification.
Complimentary GIA grading for clear center stone diamonds:
Any piece that is offered with an option of a clear diamond center stone is delivered with a complimentary GIA certification for the center diamond. Pieces such as the Phantom Guardian, Flora, Dreamers, Swan and Lullaby all come with diamond center stone certification.
What if I want a natural colored gemstone piece or fancy colored diamond piece to be certified?
If you wish to certify a gemstone for your personal records or for any other reasons we recommend to visit your local gemologist for a full report. Pieces set with natural color diamonds such as icy or salt and pepper diamonds can be analyzed by your local gemologist. Pieces set with natural colored gemstones can also be analyzed by your local gemologist. A gemologists fee's vary by location and expertise.

How do I know my ring size?
There are a few different ways to determine your ring size. Your ring size also depends on how tight or loose you like to wear your jewelry. Our fingers get a bit bigger in hot weather and smaller in cold weather, so you also may want to also keep your environment in mind! For the easiest way to figure out your ring size at home, we recommend checking out this helpful website: Find My Ring Size.
Can I wear my jewelry in the shower?
Yes. All of our pieces are made to last lifetimes in solid gold. We ask that you take some precautions with pieces that contain small opals as they are more delicate in nature.
What if I got the wrong ring size?
There is a one time $100 fee to resize the ring at our studio, this includes prepaid back and forth shipping costs if the order was placed in the US. International orders may be subject to a higher rate. To save you time and shipping costs - we also recommend to take the ring to any local jeweler for a resizing, it's a fairly quick process that most trained jewelers can complete within a couple days.
Can I change my ring size after my order is placed?
Please be sure of your size before ordering. We cannot accommodate size changes after an order is placed and goes into production. If you still want to change your size we can hold your ring once it is completed the handcrafting process to take it through a final resizing, the fee will be $70.
Do you offer financing options?
Yes, you can make payments through ShopPay and Klarna. Once you get to the 'payment' section when you've reached checkout, you can choose to pay either one.
Where are the pieces made?
All of our pieces are handcrafted in solid gold from beginning to end by master jewelers at our Scottsdale studio.
How do I keep my ring sparkling?
We recommend taking off your ring during physical activity and when you sleep. Once or twice a month, place your ring in warm water with very little non-detergent soap and let soak for a 2-3 minutes. Gently brush with a baby tooth brush around and underneath the stone setting. Rinse in warm water and dab dry with a soft cloth. This will keep it always looking new.
How durable is my ring?
All pieces are handcrafted in solid gold and made to be passed down for generations to come. The durability of a ring largely depends on the hardness of the precious stone used. Moonstones for instance are 6-6.5 Mohs, which requires more delicacy. To learn more visit GIA.
Can I change the gemstone in an existing style?
We have access to all kinds of diamonds and gemstones. Let us know what you have in mind and we'd be happy to try and accommodate. All custom orders are charged a one time custom fee of $150 plus the difference in the cost of the new gem. If you wish to change out the gem for an existing style please email us with "custom request" in the subject line along with your budget and desired ring style.
Can you create a new design?
Email us with your requirements for any bespoke or engagement pieces. Please include your budget and to help us provide the best options for you. Kindly note that the minimum fee is $7,000 for a completely new custom design as this process requires several steps of iteration and dedicated artistry throughout the development cycle of the ring.
Can all your rings be used as Engagement Rings?
Every piece was made with Engagement and Bridal in mind, but also to be that perfect gift for yourself or a loved one for any occasion. If your heart desires a Moonstone or Opal engagement ring, we recommend you take additional precaution as they are slightly more delicate than Diamond or Sapphire center stones.
Do you ship outside of the United States and Canada?
Yes, we ship globally. Prices at checkout do not include all applicable taxes that may be charged by the country where the transaction was originated. All duties or additional taxes charged are the responsibility of the buyer and will be due at the time of delivery.
What ring sizes do you offer?
We offer full and half sizes from Size 4 to Size 9 for most ring styles. Sizes over 9 are charged a $400 and up fee depending on the design to recreate the ring in a bigger size and cover the cost of added gold. This fee may vary based on the ring. Feel free to reach out to us directly using the contact form and we'd be happy to accommodate your request.
The North Star and Elixir rings are currently offered in only whole sizes from 4 to 9 due to the handcrafting process and unique design of the ring. We recommend to have them resized at your local jeweler if you are looking for a more specific size.
Can I place a rush order?
Rush orders accepted on a case by case basis and are charged a one time fee of $500 or more depending on the design. This fee includes UPS overnight shipping. Please note this option may not be available during the holiday season due to high demand.
