Custom Rings from Our Collection:
Design Bay rings are unique and are made to order, so please allow between 13 and 17 business days from the date of order confirmation.

Rings Incorporating One-of-a-Kind Gemstones:
For rings that incorporate unique, one-of-a-kind gemstones, which need to be individually sourced, we are unable to provide an exact timeframe due to the nature of the sourcing process. However, we assure you that we will make every effort to deliver these custom-made rings as quickly as possible.

Order Confirmation:
Once an order is placed for a custom-made ring, you will receive an order confirmation that includes the details of your purchase and an estimated delivery date. Please review the confirmation carefully to ensure accuracy.

Throughout the production process, we will maintain open lines of communication with you to provide regular updates on the progress of your custom-made ring. Our team will promptly inform you of any unexpected delays or changes to the estimated delivery timeframe.

Expedited Delivery:
While we strive to complete and deliver all custom-made rings within the specified timeframes, we understand that there may be instances where customers require expedited delivery. If you have special time constraints, please contact us, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.

Once your custom-made ring is completed, it will be shipped to the address provided during the ordering process. We utilise reliable shipping methods to ensure the safe and secure delivery of your purchase. Additionally, we will provide you with a tracking number, allowing you to monitor the progress of your shipment.

International Orders:
For international orders, please note that customs procedures and shipping times may vary. We will provide an estimated delivery timeframe specific to your location upon order confirmation.
