Manufacturing & processing time
I work as a slow jeweler, this means that I make all my jewelry pieces one by one, therefore the availability of each of them can vary, all the pieces in the online shop are available for purchase but that does not mean that there is a stock of all of them, if the item you bought is not in stock, it will be necessary to manufacture it especially for you.
Processing/manufacturing times vary according to the complexity of the design and manufacturing technique, most of the pieces require an estimate of 5 business days, designs made in casting or lost-wax require between 10 -15 business days plus the shipping time. The same rules apply for pieces in a custom size the same thing happens, if your size is in stock I will send it quickly, otherwise, I would appreciate it if you wait for the indicated time. When your piece is ready, it will be sent within a period of no more than 3 business days.
Due to its manufacturing process, the hollow and cast designs (lost wax) will need around 10-15 business days to be manufactured if there is not stock, again, plus shipping time.
During the Christmas holidays, the manufacturing time may increase depending on my workload.
When making your purchase, you will be indicated the shipping time, that is considered once the piece is ready, that is after the manufacturing and processing time has ended.
If you need your order to be with you in a determined time, please confirm the immediate availability of the articles that interest you by contacting me directly before finishing your buy.
Shipments in CDMX will be made using a messaging system with previous notice to the buyer. This system offers a single delivery with no possibility of a second delivery date, so the buyer must confirm its availability to receive their shipment. An over cost will be charged if once confirmed it is no one available for reception. Shipments to the metropolitan area may be subject to regular national mailing and courier may not apply.
All international & domestic shipments outside CDMX are made using the Regular Registered Shipping from the Mexican Postal Service, corresponding to the economic standard cost with tracking number, in case you are in the Mexican Republic, the package must arrive at your address along with the mail and the person receiving the package must show identification to the postal staff. In the case of international shipments, the Mexican Post will be responsible for delivering the package to the postal company of the recipient country and the latter will make the final delivery.
All shipments will include a tracking number, however, consider that some international postal companies do not allow to track foreign postal numbers, so despite having a guide number it can be difficult to track your order. (CA and AU are examples).
Delivery time will depend on the shipping distance and the customs process.
In the event that a free shipping promotion is offered, it will be using registered mail from Correos de Mexico, it does not include private courier services.

Buyers in the UK and Brazil
According to the new e-commerce policies in the United Kingdom, I won't be able to sell to that country from my personal shop but you can continue acquiring my designs at my Etsy shop!
Shipments to Brazil will be at the buyer's risk, unfortunately, the local mail system is not reliable and there is no guarantee of receipt, so claims for the lost property will not be accepted.
I offer you to quote the cost of your shipment by national courier or any international courier company, there are no fixed prices since they depend on the daily price of the US dollar. Consider that the shipping cost will increase considerably.
If you are interested in express shipping, contact me before finalizing your purchase.
