FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

Buying

I really want an item that’s out of stock, how long will it take for me to get it?

  • Lead time for out of stock items to ship is 3-6 weeks

Are you having any sales or are there coupon codes?

  • Items on sale will be listed directly on this site.
  • Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the occasional coupon code

Do I have to create an account to buy something?

  • While we would love for you to create an account so that you can later come back and write a review about your product, you can checkout as a guest without creating an account.

Will you make me a one-off custom piece?

  • Yes, but most don’t have the stomach for it.  The amount of time that goes into a truly custom, one-off design is significant.  Iterations based upon customer feedback during the design process alone can run several hundred dollars so even a best case scenario it’s several hundred dollars.  While a one-off piece is possible, it’s not for most.  If you’re one of the few, contact us.

Payment

Is it safe to use my credit card on this site?

Who designs your jewelry?

Does Instinctively Savage outsource it’s manufacturing?

  • Yes, but everything is manufactured onshore. We have partnered with a U.S.A. based casting company to manufacture our designs and every piece goes through a stringent QA process both by our casting partner before it’s shipped to Instinctively Savage and again by Instinctively Savage before it’s shipped to the customer.  Please note that we do not manufacture chains – our chains are made in the U.S.A. or Italy.
