For made-to-order and bespoke jewellery, please allow up to 2-6 and 4-10 weeks, respectively, for production. This may vary, depending upon the design. Special requests and rush orders will be accommodated, if possible.
CHANGING OR CANCELLING AN ONLINE ORDER
Once an online order is placed, you (the client) have a 72hr grace period to modify or cancel the order, by contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. No additional charges will be incurred. Beyond this 72hr period, the order can neither be modified nor cancelled. Prices listed on FRIDA.CA are in Canadian dollars.

We use FedEx for shipments. Identification and a signature from an adult are required on all orders at the time of delivery; therefore please make sure that someone is available to sign for the delivery or arrange for alternative delivery options.
Please note, we do not ship to PO boxes, APO/FPO addresses or hotels. We will use reasonable efforts to ensure estimated delivery lead times, from the date of shipment. Orders are not shipped on weekends or holidays, as they are not considered regular business days. During holiday seasons, orders may be delayed beyond regular shipping times, for reasons beyond our control.
We ship worldwide.
As processing and production time varies, we will contact you when the order is ready to be shipped. We reserve the right to modify shipping costs at any time, without prior notice.
