We blinked and the summer was over! We are quickly approaching the much anticipated HOLIDAY SEASON and all eyes are on birthdays, events and upcoming winter weddings and elopements! If you are wondering how far in advance you should start your search and production of your wedding bands or gifts, you are not alone. We are often asked questions regarding lead times, production and timing when it comes to placing an order, especially for an upcoming wedding! That is why, in order to best serve you, we wanted to communicate the importance of timing and placing your order.
The Holiday Season and the Perfect Gift
We can all agree: this year has flown by! It is hard to believe the holidays are right around the corner. With current lead times between 6-8 weeks, and some baguette Diamond pieces at up to 12 weeks, the time to order for an end-of-the-year completion date is now!
We truly have a little something for all of the special individuals on your list.
For your best friend: our Initial Necklace is personal and the sweetest addition to any layered necklace story. We love the versatility and symbolism behind this piece - it can represent your best friend's name, their soon-to-be new last name, their brand new bundle of joy’s name, the list goes on!
For the mother figure in your life: our Tennis Bracelet is classic beauty, yet totally modern at the same time. The epitome of everyday elegance.
For your super cool aunt: Elle Earrings make an amazing every-day piece, or can dress up any outfit (the time where we can go places again has to be right around the corner)! They fit with any style, and transcend through all generations.
For anyone and everyone on your list: our Kasia Candle smells amazing and looks gorgeous in any space. Jasmine, vanilla, and sandalwood come together for a scent that is strong yet romantic, plus it is gender neutral!
For yourself (it’s been quite a year, you deserve a gift too): our all time favorite Bullet Band never disappoints. A statement on its own, or a dramatic addition to a wedding band stack or right hand stack, we know you’ve been eyeing this one all year.
Holiday Engagements and Winter Weddings
In anticipation of the busy holiday season, we highly recommend starting your exciting search for the perfect wedding bands now! As we like to say, ‘you should purchase your wedding bands at the same time you purchase your wedding dress’ (or at least six months before your wedding)! Our typical production time on items, outside Ready To Ship, falls anywhere between a 6-8 week production time. This is to ensure the best precision, starting with properly selected parcels of diamonds all the way to final polishing execution. Wedding bands are an exciting and fun item to check off your wedding list that will last much longer than the flowers, food and cake! Given these uncertain times and the vast majority of weddings being postponed, it has been a joy to watch you find the wedding bands of your dreams and feel the excitement of your big day, regardless of the date. Love is not postponed!
In fact, we are excited to see so many of you recently make the most important decision of your life - popping the big question! We have so many newly added Engagement Rings. These pieces are Ready to Ship - meaning they are ready typically within 1-2 weeks! If you have a special vision in mind, or a family stone you would love to redesign, our Custom/Bespoke projects could be the perfect fit for you. Learn more about custom designs here.
We hope this information helps you to feel informed and confident in the timing of your special purchase, whether that is wedding bands, engagement rings, or a gift. If you have any further questions on production, lead times, or if you are hoping to have your pieces by a certain date, please feel free to reach out to us here.
