What if my jewelry piece breaks?
If the item arrives damaged or breaks during the first 30 days, we will repair it free of charge (you pay only for shipping the item to us). Please contact us at orders@nancynelsonjewelry.com to inform us of the issue. We will reply with the return address you will need to mail your item to and any other information you may need.  Be sure your item is well-packed and insured as we are not responsible for returns which are lost or damaged in transit. 

If you want to return an item for repair after 30 days, a nominal fee will be charged for shipping and materials (to be determined by the designer upon inspection of problem). 

How should I care for my jewelry?
All jewelry that you receive will come in an air tight poly bag. To keep your jewelry from tarnishing, keep it in this bag and store it in a dark place (drawer or jewelry box) while you are not wearing it. You may use a jewelry cloth to polish. To get to those tricky, hard to reach places, create a cleaning solution with baking soda, soapy water and dash of lemon juice.  Apply with an old tooth brush and lightly brush. Jewelry will sparkle and shine!

Please DO NOT use solvents and harsh chemicals. Put on your jewelry last to avoid exposure to hair-styling products and the alcohol in perfume which will often damage not only the metal, but the gems as well.
