Can I return purchased items if I don't like them or they don't fit?

  • We are happy to offer exchanges for like items and, in some cases, store credit. Shipping charges will apply in most cases. We want you to love and adore your selections!

Will my jewelry tarnish?

  • Sterling silver jewelry is timeless and can last a lifetime. Here's some information about how to take care of it and prevent it from tarnishing: Overtime, any sterling silver piece exposed to air will tarnish. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Silver tarnishes faster in areas with high humidity. Chemicals like hairspray, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, cleaners, etc., can speed up the tarnishing process. Be mindful to keep silver away from vinegar, olives, and fruit juice. One of the best ways to keep sterling silver jewelry beautiful is to wear it!

How should I store my jewelry?

  • We recommend storing your sterling silver jewelry in a cool, dark place away from sources of sunlight, heat, and moisture. We use small, resealable bags, and remove as much air as possible. Don't leave your silver jewelry in the bathroom or wear it in the shower, pool, hot tub, or while working out. Humidity and moisture tarnish silver faster. After taking off your jewelry for the day, clean it with a dry, soft polishing cloth before putting it back in your jewelry box. 

    Do you hand make all your jewelry?

    • 90% of the jewelry we carry is handmade, whether it is by us or our vendor friends like Brett Lauren and Dian Malouf. 

    How quickly do you ship?

    • Our processing time is 3-5 business days (excluding Sundays and Mondays) and the shipping time is 2-3 business days through UPS.

    Do you ship internationally?

    • Unfortunately, we do not ship internationally at this time.

    My jewelry broke. Can you fix it?

    • Oh, no! We're happy to help repair jewelry you purchased with us by shipping it back to us. Shoot us an email at ilikestones2@yahoo.com or a text at (254) 717-7431.

    Do you buy stones?

    Are you able to donate to my charity event?
