Holiday FAQs


What is the final date for standard shipment orders to arrive by the holiday?

Standard orders must be placed by no later than Sunday, December 12th.

Please note: Canada, Puerto Rico, Alaska and Hawaii require longer lead times, and as a result of enhanced precautionary measures due to COVID-19, our processing time may be longer than normal. Some carriers are also experiencing extended service delays which could exceed delivery beyond your selected shipping time.

Can my order be modified after it has been placed?

Changes to orders cannot be made once an order has been submitted. It is possible that we may be able to cancel your order if needed. Please reach out to Customer Experience at 1-800-725-7822 as soon as possible to determine if your order is eligible to be canceled.

If cancelled, the pre-authorized hold will typically drop off within a few business days. Time may vary between financial institutions.

If an item is out of stock, will you be restocking?

Restocking for full-priced items online may take 4-6 weeks. Clearance/Final Sale items may not be restocked. You may visit our store locator to see if there is a corporately owned store near you that may have the product. A listing of our authorized resellers can also be found on our store locator:

Do you offer price adjustments?

Due to the frequency of our promotions, price adjustments are not offered. However, you may return and repurchase any item(s), or if your order has not been shipped, you may reach out to Customer Service at 1-800-725-7822 to see if the order can be cancelled.

Do you include gift boxes?

Yes, but you do need to indicate that by clicking on “ADD FREE GIFT BOX TO ORDER” which appears below the order’s subtotal in your Shopping Bag. If this option is not selected, item(s) will arrive in a sealed biodegradable plastic bag. We do have a Jewelry Travel Pouch available for purchase.

Can I have the gift boxes sent separately if I forget to add them?

We are unable to send separate gift boxes or packaging. All gifting needs must be selected at the time of placing your order. We do have a Jewelry Travel Pouch available for purchase.

How do I track my order?

Once your order has finished processing, your shipment confirmation email will contain a tracking number. Orders are transferred to the shipper within 72 hours after tracking has been assigned. Although you may not see updates, packages are moving through the network. Once it reaches the ship-to-state, the package will be scanned, and you will see an expected delivery date at that time.

  • Standard shipping may take up to (10) business days from the transfer date.
  • Priority may take up to (4) business days from the transfer date.

If the package does not arrive by the committed timeframe, please contact us then.

My order has shipped with a USPS tracking number, why do I not see any movement?

If your order has been assigned a USPS tracking number and shows pre-shipment, please note this is normal and means your order has left our warehouse and is currently in transit. Due to high volume with the carriers, you may not see scans or movement on your package while it is in transit.

Currently, our representatives (as well as USPS) are unable to provide any additional guidance on status updates regarding your order. If your order does not show any movement after 10 business days from the date your tracking was assigned, please contact us then.

My order shows as delivered, yet I do not have it. What should I do?

Trying to find your package? Sorry! This happens sometimes. Please check your front porch, side door, back porch, garage area, bushes, and mailbox to make sure it's not hiding or jammed. Also ask your neighbors if they may have received it for you. If your package still hasn't turned up in 3 more business days, contact us.

We are not responsible for shipments sent to an incorrect or previous address or orders shipped to a Forwarding Company.
