We invite international orders. We ship by Global Priority Mail which generally takes 4-10 days. We try to keep shipping costs as low as possible. Please e-mail for quote on shipping cost. Please visit our International Orders page for more information.

Please allow up to two weeks to process your order. Because we make each of our mala and jewelry pieces by hand, shipment time will vary. Longer delays in order processing can be expected during heavy order volume times. Please remember that we hand make all of the mala and jewelry pieces ourselves and great care is taken with each order so please be patient.

Orders will ship by either first class or Priority Mail depending on weight and generally take 3-7 business days to deliver within the continental US. International orders generally take 6-10 business days to deliver. Please contact us directly if you would like express shipping. If you have any questions regarding your order please contact us via email or phone.

We make certain our merchandise is sent in good condition and with adequate packing. Should damage occur in shipping, please contact us immediately for information on returns and replacement.

Items must be returned in new and unused condition. Malas should be sent back along with the presentation cases/envelopes that they were enclosed in.

Please package the return in a sturdy box or padded mailer rather than an envelope to avoid any shipping damages.
