Below are current shipping cutoffs per carrier (Please note this information does not include any transit delays associated with specific locations or other carrier issues.):

To help avoid theft and lost packages around the holiday time, we will automatically upgrade all orders over $600 to FedEx 2-day and require a signature.We are not liable for packages returned to sender if a signature is not collected or the package is delayed as a result. You may contact Fedex to schedule a pickup, if desired.

Holiday Returns

Extended returns are offered during the holiday time period. All purchases made between November 22, 2022 through December 24, 2022 may be returned through January 13, 2023. Returns must be postmarked or accepted at a Returns Bar by this date and the item must be in unworn, new, and saleable condition.

International shipping return surcharge ($25) still applies to all returned items that are not damaged/defective.

During this time period, returns to Local Eclectic may take up to 3 weeks to process. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

Shipping

Can I cancel or change my order?

Due to the high volume of orders and fast shipping times, we cannot guarantee changes or order cancellations. Please fill out the contact form with “I want to cancel an order” as the action, as well as your order number, and we will do our best to help you! Please note we cannot guarantee any changes after an order has been placed as we do try to get started on fulfilling your orders right away.

Price Adjustments

To be fair to all customers, Local Eclectic does not offer any price adjustments after an item has been purchased

Order cancellations: Fill out the Contact Us Form and select the “I’d like to cancel my order” option. Include your order number as we cannot process a cancellation without the order number.

Please note: We cannot guarantee order cancellations because our orders are processed so quickly - we will do our best. In the event your order cannot be canceled, you can still process a return for refund upon receipt of your order.

Does Local Eclectic offer Express Shipping?

Yes! We offer FedEx Priority Overnight & FedEx 2-Day shipments.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes! We ship internationally via DHL, which is fully tracked to the door and takes roughly 3-7 business days (longer during holiday time). 

Additional time and communication with your country's custom's office may be required. Your duties and taxes will be calculated and included in your order cost.

Do you ship on Holidays?

We do not ship on these Federal holidays: Martin Luther King Jr., Presidents Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years Day. We will ship those orders on the following business day!

My order has shipped but the tracking information isn't updating!

Tracking typically takes between 24-48 hours to begin updating. If you still aren't seeing any updates after 48 hours please contact us through the Contact Us Form.

It says my order was delivered but I didn't receive it!

With USPS, we sometimes see that a package will be marked as "delivered" even though this isn't always the case. This is especially common during high volume/ holiday shipping. We recommend allowing 24-48 hours to account for potential internal USPS delays.

If you have purchased Navidium Shipping Protection, please use the Contact Us Form and select “I have a question about Shipping Protection” option.

Additionally, we ask that you double-check with neighbors, housemates, or in any delivery areas around your home or porch where the package may have been left. If you still aren't able to locate your package 48 hours after the package is marked delivered, please reach out through Contact Us Form. We can help file claims with carriers but at this time we are not responsible for lost and stolen packages, unless Shipping Protection was added to the order.

I purchased Shipping Protection and my package is lost/stolen. What do I do?

Please use the Contact Us Form and select “I have a question about Shipping Protection” option with details on  your order number and what happened. We will be in touch!

What is my ring size?

Here's a link to a printable ring sizer that you can use to determine your ring size at home. Alternatively, you can purchase our Perfect Fit Ring Sizer.

All of our ring sizes are in US sizing. If you are located outside the United States, use this ring size conversion chart to figure out what your size converts to in US sizing.

Ring sizes are listed beneath each product's name and price. The smallest size we carry is a 4 and the largest size we carry is a 13. Please note that not all rings are available in this range.

My bracelet or ring is turning my skin green, what do I do?

Don't panic, it's totally harmless! Copper and brass react to everyone's skin differently. It could be that you have an allergy to the metal, or maybe you washed your hands with soap or slathered on lotion just before throwing on your jewels. A DIY trick for fixing the problem is to coat the inside of the piece with clear nail polish -- this creates a thin barrier between you and the metal. Alternatively, if you can't stand the sight of turning teenage mutant ninja turtle green, we're happy to offer store credit for your return within 90 days of purchase.More on Copper and Brass Jewelry Here.
