COVID-19 Impact on HJ
A few shipping time expectations pre-pandemic are no longer viable. Such as countries still struggling to return to normalcy as the globe recovers from the pandemic.
International Orders have been opened up slightly and once again, we ship to over 40 international countries. We will return to shipping world-wide when all international gateways are restored entirely. Thank you for your patience, we adore and love our international supporters to no end!💕

What is the difference between your stainless steel and sterling silver jewelry?
Stainless steel and sterling silver differ in terms of their hardness. Stainless steel boasts a higher level of hardness than sterling silver. Therefore, stainless steel will last longer than sterling silver, especially since it's also rust-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and free from the possibility of tarnish. With that being said, we are able to achieve a much higher level of detail within our pendants and rings made of sterling silver where our stainless steel pieces will naturally show less detail within the design. Sterling Silver can also be restored to it's original luster using simple jewelry cleaning methods! We personally love .925 silver because it the most reflective metal on the periodic table making it the whitest, and shiniest. Please keep these facts in mind when making selections throughout.
Why haven’t I gotten an order confirmation email?
There’s two possible reasons why someone wouldn’t receive an order confirmation immediately after checking out. Most commonly it would be a typo when entering your information. Or the Auto-Fill feature you enabled on your device has input an email address you don’t use often or for shopping online. In either case, you can use the website Contact Form to send us your order number and correct email address you would like it to be sent to. Our team will be ready to resend the confirmation for you once we reach your inquiry within our queue!
Why have I gotten an order confirmation email but no shipping confirmation yet?
You will receive a tracking link via email as soon as our team creates a shipping label to get your order into transit. During peak seasons such as a new drop date or holiday sale our processing times are increased and can take anywhere from 2 to 14 business days before receiving tracking. You may have an existing tracking link that hasn’t populated with information as well, which is subject to the same processing times during peak seasons in order to see movement.
Do you accept returns for exchanges or refunds?
Absolutely! We love to make sure our beloved supporters are left with jewelry that fits properly so they can drip confidently. Use our Contact Form to reach our team and quickly initiate that easy process! Below you’ll find our guidelines regarding all situations you may find yourself in.
You will have 15 days after order arrival to let us know if a product doesn’t fit or hit right for you. Below you’ll find exactly how to do so for the fastest return processing possible! Customers are expected to pay for postage in these scenarios.
You must use a bubble wrap mailer to ship your jewelry in order to prevent all damage in transit. Any jewelry severely damaged in transit due to very poor packaging will automatically void all arrangements made prior to shipment. No exceptions.
My tracking link says my order was delivered but I can’t find it. What should I do?
It is extremely common for the USPS to accidentally deliver mail to neighboring addresses, just by one or two houses/units in most cases. You should check up with them to see if they've gotten any black mailers with your name on it! Also checking your local USPS center with tracking number in hand could yield a lost package or its whereabouts. If the parcel is around, they will be able to easily find it. These mix ups happen all the time and we answer these types of questions everyday. If your search is unsuccessful please reach out immediately, bringing us up to speed with your search via the Contact Form.
My order’s tracking hasn’t moved in a while, what’s going on?
Once an order is in transit, it is USPS’s responsibility to ensure your package gets scanned at each checkpoint. A new checkpoint can take multiple business days to populate in some cases. Especially with orders leaving United States borders! If you feel as though an order has been lost in transit by USPS after 14 days of no movement on tracking, contact us immediately though the Contact Form so we can look into it ourselves!
