How do you ship?
All orders from Phyllis & Elsie are shipped USPS priority mail, and a tracking number will be provided with your shipping notification.
How long will it take to receive my order?
WildWhere pieces are cast by a small local family-run casting company and finished by hand in my studio. I make all other pieces individually in my studio. I do my best to turn in-stock orders around as quickly as possible, typically within 2-3 business days.
Rings that are sized to fit will be shipped within 7 business days. If you are ordering a piece that is not in stock I will contact you with an estimated shipping date, as custom orders may take a few weeks to receive. If you need something by a specific date or would like to expedite shipping, please make sure to leave a note at checkout and/or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will always do my best to accommodate your requests and appreciate your understanding and patience.

How do I care for my jewelry?
Each piece of our jewelry is hand-crafted and therefore delicate. Please use appropriate care to enjoy our jewelry for a long time.
The majority of our collection consists of .925 sterling silver and can be cleaned with a polishing cloth. On sterling silver pieces the metal may darken or tarnish with normal wear. Most of our sterling silver already has an oxidized finish to accentuate details and texture. We recommend gently wiping the metal surface with a polishing cloth. Please do NOT dip any Phyllis & Elsie piece in jewelry cleaners or solutions. This may cause corrosion and permanent damage to the metal.
Sterling silver will stay relatively clean if worn frequently, but may oxidize (turn dark) quickly when not in use. Storing silver jewelry in a dry, air-tight container with an anti-tarnish strip will help minimize oxidation and reduce the need for polishing.
All of the stones we use are natural gemstones, therefore they will vary in shape, size and color. Inclusions can be seen in natural stones and are a part of their beauty. Most gemstones do not stand the force of cleaning agents, polishing pastes or ultrasonic cleaners.
Opal care: Avoid bleach, chemicals, cleaners, perfumes & other harsh chemicals. Clean with a soft brush, cool water, and mild soap. Never dip in jewelry cleaner or saturate in liquid.

How do I figure out my ring size?
The best way to figure out your ring size is to go to a jewelry store and have the sizing done professionally. This is particularly important for some of the WildWhere rings, which have wide bands and therefore fit more snugly. If this is not feasible, try findmyringsize.com to use a manual ring sizing guide to help figure out your size. *Please note this is only a guide therefore we cannot be responsible for incorrect ring size determination. Many of our rings are sized to order and are not returnable. Please contact us with any questions with regard to ring-sizing at email@example.com.
