Most White Space styles are made to order by hand by Khadijah and a very small team of artisans in Los Angeles. We do our best to turn orders around as quickly as possible (7 business days), most pieces take up to 14 days to make. If you need something by a certain date or would like to expedite shipping, please make sure to put that in the comments section, or send us an email at email@example.com.
We will always do our best to accommodate your requests and we appreciate your understanding and patience.

Rerouting a Package
If you need to change your shipping address after the package has begun transit, this will require a reroute through FedEx. Please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org for this request. Fees incurred by FedEx for the reroute will be at the customer's expense.
How will I know when my order has shipped?
Once your order has shipped, you will receive a confirmation email directly from us with your tracking details for domestic orders. Be sure to check your SPAM folder as the emails can be re-directed there.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes we do! Your shipping costs will depend on your location and the shipping method you select.
Kindly note that we cannot be held responsible for any customs fees, import duties, taxes, and other local charges added by your country’s customs office.
Are the pictures online to scale?
No. We try our best to supply photographs on a model that accurately depict the scale of the item, including showing the small details.For this reason the descriptions include dimensions for the pieces, and we provide additional images for scale representation whenever we can. If you have any questions regarding the size of a particular piece, please contact us at email@example.com and we will be happy to answer your questions.
How do I find out my ring size?
We have a few suggestions to help you determine your rings size - please see our Ring Sizing for full information page here. We also recommend visiting a local jeweler to get your finger accurately sized before you order.
Where do you get your materials?
Using high quality, ethically and sustainably mined materials in our jewelry is very important to us.
All of our raw materials come from Hoover & Strong, and Stuller, two companies recognized for their high environmental standards including pollution prevention and minimization. The metals from those refineries/manufacturers come from reclaimed sources and we recycle all of our scrap metal as well. Recycled metals go through rigid purification processes so there is no need to worry about contaminated metals in your jewelry. There are some chains that are made with gold that we cannot guarantee come from recycled sources, but they are all solid 14kt gold as indicated in the product description. These particular chains are made in Italy and we use them because of their unique detailing and exceptional manufacturing quality.
High quality, conflict-free diamonds
The diamonds we use are G-H in color, and SI1-VS in clarity. White/Space sources most of our diamonds from either recycled sources or from Canada, where they are mined in accordance with the principles of sustainable development, and to the highest environmental standards. They have provided social benefits to the northern communities and have brought about important economic prosperity to their region. We also work with additional diamond dealers who are certified by U.S customs to import conflict-free diamonds as indicated by the rules of the Kimberley Process, an International process that tracks and certifies diamonds as conflict-free. In April 2003, congress and the President of the United States passed a law adopting the Kimberley Process that requires all US diamond retailers to buy diamonds from manufacturers who have documentation warranting that the merchandise was obtained through legitimate channels. Today, the US Customs Service actively enforces the Kimberley Process requirements as diamonds enter United States ports. You can read more about the Kimberly Process at www.kimberlyprocess.com. All semiprecious stones used in our jewelry are natural, and the majority of them are cut in India.
Can I replace a lost earring?
Yes! If the style is in production you may purchase a half pair. We make most of the pieces by hand and, as a result, certain styles can vary slightly in size, and some styles have also been discontinued. In some cases, we will ask you to send the mate to us so we can match it for you. A few styles are produced for one season only and may not be available at the time of the request. If you need to order a mate, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Does the jewelry come with a box?
Yes. Each order arrives in an ivory-colored box debossed with our logo and lined in soft, velvety ultrasuede.
Can you gift wrap?
Unfortunately we cannot provide additional wrapping (other than our custom box) for gifts at this time.
How do I care for my jewelry?
Each piece of our jewelry is hand-crafted and some pieces are more delicate than others. Using appropriate care with your solid gold pieces will enable you enjoy your jewelry for a lifetime. We recommend cleaning items with a soft toothbrush and a mild soap like the original "Dawn" dish soap. It really does wonders! For items with mounted stones or pearls, these can also be cleaned the same way, and they can also be soaked in warm soapy water to loosen any dirt or grime before brushing. Please do not wear your pearls or softer stones (emeralds, opals) in chlorinated pools.
On Ultrasonic cleaners: All-gold jewelry (without stones) is perfectly fine for the ultrasonic, but keep in mind that consumer ultrasonic models don't always clean as well as the "toothbrush and soap option" above. Never ever put pearls, opals, emeralds, topaz, tanzanite, turquoise, lapis lazuli, moonstone or malachite in an ultrasonic cleaner. Generally we do not recommend using ultrasonic cleaners for any jewelry with gemstones other than diamonds.
