Web Site Policies
We want you to know that the information you send us is held in strict confidence and that when you give us your e-mail address we do not share our email lists with third parties for marketing purposes. We use your email addresses to communicate with you regarding your orders, other matters regarding transactions between us, and for newsletters regarding special sales, new work we have made, and free jewelry drawings that you may have signed up to receive. All credit card purchases made on maryannarcher.com are processed using Authorize.net’s industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving customer data exchanged with our site server.
Please note that our entire inventory is hand made and it requires time in the making. Many of our pieces are limited edition items and if in stock, these items will be shipped 1-3 days after recieving your order. Those pieces not in stock may require 1-3 weeks.
We currently have a gift registry in our store for the purpose of gift giving. It has been our experience that this system works as it helps the person giving as well as the one recieving. We are working to have this service available to you on our website and hope to have it completed shortly. In the meantime, be certain when in our store to inquire about it, to fill out the form and have your personal ring sizes and wishes recorded.
We offer boxed and gift wrapped gift certificates in any amount you desire and we will ship to your specified location. We are currently working to make this service available to you directly on our website, but until that time, please call the store with your gift certificate order.
We will be offering a gift wrapping option, at no charge to you, when you are in the checking out part of the process. It is not completed as yet, so if that is your need today, please call to let us know that you want this service.
Gift recipients are entitled to a nonrefundable merchandise credit. Please carefully follow the rules for all return merchandise and be certain to include not only your personal information for future mailing, but the name of the person who gifted you so that you will be guaranteed the correct credit amount originally purchased for you.
Because custom orders can have many variables, there is no set completion date, however, most are normally completed within a 3-4 week period. If placed during our busy summer season, June 1- September 1, it could take longer. Because we include the customer along the way in the making of the custom piece, and in the final design decision, all custom orders are non returnable and non refundable for any reason.
We do 95% of all repairs in store in our Harbor Springs location, with the exception of those requiring laser technology which we send to a reputable repair shop. Please note that for these jobs, you will be charged for any shipping to and from the repair shop. Please call for our store for repair needs, options and job estimates.
When browsing our ring collection, you will notice we have included the rings size. For most rings, we are able to resize them, within a reasonable number of sizes up or down. This procedure is at no cost to you when purchasing a ring from us.
Mary Ann Archer Designs collects 6% sales tax for all Michigan residents.
