All Rackk & Ruin jewelry is handmade in our studio. Web orders made before 5pm (Wednesday through Saturday) will ship out the next day via USPS First-Class Mail if we have the style in stock. If the jewelry style is described as "made to order" you may contact us for a turnaround time estimate. Made-to-order pieces may take up to 4 weeks to ship, although we can often ship sooner. If you're needing your order ASAP, we recommend choosing the USPS Priority Mail option at checkout. Because we are not liable for the loss or theft of a package, we offer the option adding insurance coverage for an additional cost. Just contact us after placing your order and we can help you sort it out.
A shipment tracking number will be emailed when your order is en route. If your order is time sensitive, please contact us at email@example.com before you place the order and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!
Are you local? We encourage local customers to pick up their order in store to reduce our collective carbon footprint and to get the order more quickly. This option is available at checkout. If you would like to try on or purchase a piece at our Burlington, VT studio please contact us to see if we have the style in stock! If not, we will make one for you to try on or purchase.
International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International. Please note that international delivery time ranges from 3-6 weeks (this may be increased with longer customs processes during Covid-19) and accurate tracking is not available. We are not responsible for packages taking longer than average nor are we for packages lost in transit. We are not responsible for any international import taxes or customs charges.
For any questions regarding the care and material qualities of your jewelry piece, please reference our Material Encyclopedia.
Our jewelry is crafted to sustain years of wear. If, however, your piece happens to break, please refer to our Repair Request order form. For repair inquiries not included in this order form, or to purchase a single replacement earring, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are eager to assist in prolonging the life of your jewelry!
Sustainability & Ethics
Being a small, maker-owned operation, sustainability is of utmost importance when we design and produce our work. All jewelry is made in Burlington, Vermont with care and consciously sourced materials. Our operations focus on social responsibility and ethical sourcing.
Rackk & Ruin is located on unceded Abenaki land. Social responsibility is central to our ethos, and we are committed to active anti-racism through our business partnerships, brand representation, and regular reallocations of funds. Maintaining open communication and transparency surrounding our business practices will remain a priority as we strive for equity in our communities.
100% of our gold is recycled and does not support modern mining practices. We make every effort to buy stones from their source and support reputable conflict-free stone providers like Stuller. Many of our unique materials, including gemstones and coral, are recycled from vintage jewelry. Please contact us with any questions about our materials.
Our plastic-free packaging consists of natural materials, and utilizes recycled sources anywhere possible. Each jewelry box is lined with carded wool. Our envelopes are glassine, a water resistant alternative to plastic. All of these materials are biodegradable or recyclable. If you would like minimal packaging (without a note card, tissue paper, and care cards), please write this in your checkout notes!
