Are your rings sizable?
It depends on the design. The Plique Eternity and Dot Rings are not sizable. Spin Rings can be ordered to size, and can be resized for a $50 fee. Captured Rings are usually one-of-a-kind and can be resized for $40. All Captured Rings are made within sizes 7-8, which are the most common ring sizes.
How do I find out my ring size?
There are several ways. You can purchase ring sizers very affordably from Amazon. You can also purchase a simple ring sizer from Hilary Finck Jewelry here. You can also go to your local jewelry store and have your finger sized. If sizing it yourself at home, make sure to get several size measurements at different times of day for a few different days since fingers slightly change size throughout the day and in different temperatures.
Can I return a ring that doesn’t fit?
First of all, make sure you ordered your correct ring size. Second, it depends. Custom rings cannot be returned unless the size is clearly not the size that was ordered. Depending on the type of ring, it may be able to be resized. Plique Eternity and Dot Rings and Spin Rings can be returned with a store credit within 10 days of receipt.
What is your return policy?
Please contact Hilary immediately if you feel there is a problem with your order. If you find that a piece is defective, all items are subject to a strict 10-day return policy and must be in new condition with the original packaging.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. The buyer is responsible for securely shipping the item along with the original packaging, including insurance and tracking for the total cost of the item(s). Hilary cannot offer refunds for any item that is not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts due to actions of the buyer, or items returned more than 10 days after receipt.
Can I return a custom order?
Sorry, custom orders are not able to be returned.
I purchased an HFJ piece from a store/gallery. What is your return/exchange policy?
Products purchased through retailers must be returned or exchanged to the retailer and are subject to the retailer’s individual store policy.
I love my necklace but the chain broke. Can you repair it?
Yes, please contact Hilary to make arrangements for a new chain. Pricing will depend upon the type of chain.
Do you repair jewelry made by another artist?
Sorry, I do not.
I lost one of my earrings. Can you replace it?
It depends. If it is one-of-a-kind then unfortunately, no. However, sometimes earrings can be turned into pendants. Contact Hilary if you’d like more information about this. If the item is part of a small or limited production, yes, most likely. Hilary will charge half of the current price for the earrings. Note that with metal prices changing, earrings made three years ago have probably gone up in price.

Yes, Hilary offers free re-oxidation for the lifetime of your piece. Please contact Hilary to make arrangements.
My ear wire/post broke/fell off. Can you replace it?
Yes. If it was determined to be defective, Hilary will replace it at no charge. Otherwise, replacing will be charged depending upon the complexity of the piece. Please contact Hilary.
I lost the metal ear backs to my post earrings. Can I get another pair?
Yes, a pair of silver is $2 and a pair of gold will be charged according to the price listed at the time of Hilary’s purchase.

Hilary offers free jewelry cleaning/refinishing. Please contact Hilary to make arrangements.
My jewelry tarnished rather quickly. What should I do?
Best practice is to always store your sterling silver jewelry in a bag or box. Do not keep your jewelry in places with high humidity, like the bathroom, since high-humidity tends to make jewelry tarnish more easily.
Can I swim in the ocean or a pool while wearing my jewelry?
It is not recommended to swim in your HFJ. Chlorine and salt water can damage the metal, change the patina, and damage certain stones. Plus, rings and other pieces can fall off more easily in water.
Can I sleep in my jewelry?
It is not recommended, but do so at your own discretion.
Is all of the metal you use recycled?
As much as possible. All sheet, wire, and tubing stock are recycled. Findings such as ear posts and nuts, chains, and clasps are made from recycled metals whenever possible. Hilary will always purchase a recycled metal product over non-recycled whenever possible.
Are the diamonds you use ethically sourced, conflict free diamonds?
Yes, Hilary will not use diamonds unless they are certified conflict free (Kimberly Process) by the gem dealer.
