Shipping & Returns
***SHIPPING DELAY UPDATE***
Our carriers are currently experiencing delays. Packages are taking a little longer than normal to be delivered. We will update you when your order ships. For more information on how severe weather is impacting shipping in your area, click here: FEDEX, UPS, USPS
Please allow 2-3 business days for our team to process your order once credit card authorization and verification have been obtained. Once your order has been given to our carrier it will take an additional 8-12 business days for your order to be delivered to you. We promise you our jewelry is worth the wait!
Orders placed on Saturdays and Sundays will begin processing the following business day (excluding public holidays).
PLEASE NOTE: Shipping and processing for any personalized, engraved or pre-order items will take an additional 15-20 days.
Free ground shipping is offered within the contiguous United States only. This offer excludes shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories
All orders are shipped via First Mile. The following shipping methods are in effect during this time:
- Ground: Will arrive in 10 to 14 business days
FINE JEWELRY AND ORDERS OVER $800
All Fine Jewelry orders or orders valued at over $800 are shipped via FEDEX and require a signature upon delivery.
APO/FPO/DPO MILITARY ADDRESSES
All shipments to APO, FPO, and DPO addresses are sent via USPS Parcel Select. Due to military handling time, delivery to some destinations may take up to 45 days.
MULTIPLE SHIPPING ADDRESSES
At this time, we can only ship to one address per order.
All orders shipping internationally are subject to additional shipping charges based on taxes, tariffs and duties put into place by that country. Melinda Maria is not associated with these fees. All fees are to be paid for by the customer at the time of delivery. Most countries calculate shipping charges, taxes, tariffs and duties at checkout and the customer owes nothing additional at delivery.
What do I do if my tracking update says "delivered" but I did not receive my package?
Melinda Maria shipments do not require a signature upon delivery, except those sent via FedEX with fine jewelry. While all shipping carriers are experiencing an unusually high volume of orders, we will do everything we can to make sure you get your product. If you receive a “delivered” message from our carrier but do not receive your package, please contact the carrier after you’ve checked the entire premise of your home. If you are not able to track down your package through the carrier, our store policy will allow us to either reissue your order or offer you store credit within 14 days of the scheduled delivery date.
Here at Melinda Maria we believe that life is too short to wear boring jewelry and we are almost positive that you will be happy with your purchase. If in the unlikely event that you are not happy, we accept returns on all unworn items within 15 days of your purchase. We extend free returns to unsatisfied customers within 7 days of delivery of your order.
