Gift Packaging

Each item will be delivered in an attractive gift box or pouch, handled with the signature Hedone Gallery
care. A brief artist's biography and/or statement, printed on our letterhead, will be included.

 
Prices

Due to the fluctuating price of gold, platinum and silver, prices of jewelry are subject to change so
please confirm the price with the gallery at the time of purchase.  We will honor a price quoted on the
day an order is placed.


Custom Items and Special Orders

We are happy to work with you on a special order item, and many out-of-stock items may be special
ordered. Any piece made or modified for a customer is considered a special order or custom item and
can take up to six to eight weeks to deliver. Specific delivery time and availability will be given at the
time we process the order.


Custom items and/or special orders may be cancelled within 24 hours of placing the order.


Unless agreed with the gallery, we cannot accept returns or credit for custom items, special orders,
or for any piece modified specifically for a customer.


Modifications to Jewelry:
Modifications or adjustments to jewelry are handled on a case-by-case basis and will be discussed
with the customer and the maker. Customers will be notified beforehand if there will be additional
charges for any modifications or adjustments.


Repairs

We stand behind the workmanship of your purchase. In the rare event that jewelry or an object
requires repair, please contact us for specific instructions for handling and return. Without exception,
we prefer to return work for repair to the artist who made it. We cannot be responsible for jewelry or
any other item that has been altered or repaired by anyone other than the original maker.  Depending
on the type of repair that is necessary, a charge may be required.  We will discuss this with you in
advance of any work being done.
