If item is damaged, missing parts, or not meeting these guidelines, the item will be shipped back to you and we will not be able to offer a refund. At this time, because we are such a small company, we appreciate if the return cost can be covered by you.

We are sorry but we cannot currently cover International shipping expenses for exchanged items at this time. 

DEFECTS

If your piece is damaged in any way when you receive it, please contact us within 5 business days upon receiving your product. You can ship it back to us and we will replace it for a new one at no cost if you are within the USA. We are sorry but we cannot currently cover International shipping expenses at this time.

ITEMS ON SALE
All items bought on sale or as part of any sale are final.

REPAIRS 

We stand by the quality of our craftsmanship. Each piece is made with delicate, high-quality crystals, stones, and gold plated details. Your mala beads should not break easily if you follow our care recommendations, as they are made with high quality materials. If your piece breaks within 60 days of purchase and you followed our care recommendations, please reach out to us and we will repair your piece. We highly value + appreciate honesty and courtesy with these matters. There will potentially be a charge, depending on what happened to the necklace.

In terms of the gold plated details: deterioration over time is natural, as with all gold plating items. Please refer to our care recommendations to see how you can best maintain the quality of your piece through time. 

If your mala necklace breaks after 60 days, and is cared for properly it is usually not a reflection of the quality of the piece itself. If you want it repaired, t
here will be a charge for your repair - again, it will depend on what type of repair you need. Some examples are:

$10: broken tassel
$75: complete re-knotting
(+ any missing materials)

It is traditionally believed that when a mala breaks, it has fulfilled its purpose and cycle: it opens up a new chapter and it is time for setting a new intention.
 Although it may be sad to "lose" your beloved piece, you can experience it as practice of letting go of the material for a higher purpose. Honor and celebrate your mala and what it has brought you. You can read more about this in our Mala FAQ's.
