How do I place an order?

Ordering from NOVICA is easy! Once you find an item you would like to purchase, simply click the "Add to Cart" button in that product's description page. You can check the contents of your shopping cart at any time by clicking the "Cart" button at the top of the page. If you decide to remove an item from your cart, just click "Delete" to the right of the product you would like to remove. You can also adjust the quantity of any product in your shopping cart. To do this, type in the new quantity and click on the "Update Quantity" button at the bottom of the shopping cart page. Assuming the quantity you have requested is available, you will now see the adjusted quantities as well as your new subtotal (if you enter a quantity that is greater than the quantity available, your purchase quantity will reflect the maximum quantity available).

Where is my order?

If you are ordering an item coming from an international location to the United States, you will receive an email with tracking information once the order reaches the US.

If you placed an order more than 10 days ago and would like to find out the status, please click here to submit a status inquiry. A member of our customer service team will reply with information about your order, such as if it has been shipped, when it was shipped, or when we expect it to be shipped.

Alternatively, you can check the status by accessing your MyNovica account. Once signed in, navigate to the Orders & Returns section.

What forms of payment do you accept?

NOVICA accepts payment by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover), either online through our secure server or by phone. We also accept payment by PayPal ; orders placed using these payment methods must be placed online through our secure server. If you are paying via credit card and would prefer to place your order over the phone, please contact a member of our customer service team toll-free at 1-877-2-NOVICA (1-877-266-8422) or 001-210-890-4217 (Outside the US or Canada). Please note that credit cards will be charged only after an order has shipped from our fulfillment center, although an authorization will be obtained at the time the order is placed.

How long will my order take to arrive?

On average, orders arrive to the destination address in 2-3 weeks. The delivery time will depend primarily on two factors: item availability and shipping service.

Item Availability:

Unless otherwise noted, all items available for purchase on the website are in stock. Items that are backordered contain a note indicating this fact as well as the expected delivery time frame.

Shipping Service:

During checkout, we will show you a list of available shipping services and their corresponding prices and timeframes. You may also view shipping charges and timeframes through the "Calculate Shipping" link in the shopping cart. Note some items carry a special delivery timeframe that may differ from that of other items from the same region -- these items are clearly labeled with the special timeframe on the product detail page (as well as in checkout).

If we determine that we will not be able to deliver an order within the promised timeframe, we will immediately contact you via email.

How do I return an item?

Refunds will be available for up to 60 days from the day you receive your order. You must request a Returned Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number during this 60-day period to qualify for a refund.

To request an RMA number online, please log in to your myNOVICA account, visit the Orders & Returns section, and locate the order that contains the item(s) you would like to return. If your return is in any way a result of an error by NOVICA, we will provide you with a prepaid return label and will happily refund all applicable shipping costs paid on the product(s) you are returning. For US Customers, a prepaid return shipping label will be provided at no charge to return any jewelry or apparel items. You may also obtain an RMA number by calling our customer service number, 877-266-8422, or by submitting a return inquiry here.

If the return is not the result of an error by NOVICA, or a jewelry or apparel return within the US, you will be responsible for all shipping and gift box costs incurred for the order and any costs associated with returning the item(s). Please send your return using a reliable carrier that offers tracking (such as UPS, FedEx, or Priority Mail). It is strongly recommended that you insure the package, as you will be responsible for ensuring that all items arrive at the returns center in their original condition.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Refunds will not be issued if the returned products have been damaged or altered in any way before arriving at the Returns Center.

No refunds will be available after the 60-day returns period has expired

Can I cancel or modify my order?

Your order request is promptly sent to our international fulfillment center(s) in the region(s) from which you have ordered. Therefore, it is generally not possible to cancel or modify an order once it has been submitted. However, if your order has not yet been shipped and you need to cancel or modify it, please click here to submit a cancellation request and we will determine if it will be possible to halt the fulfillment of the order. Please note that no order may be canceled or modified once it has been shipped. In those cases, you may follow the return instructions if you decide not to keep the product after having received it.

Pricing Errors and Cancellation of Orders

NOVICA reserves the right to cancel an order any time before it has been shipped and the credit card charged if one or more of the following conditions applies:

  1. Product pricing error: Because NOVICA offers a large array of items, a product may on occasion be listed with the incorrect price. If a product is purchased at a price that is lower than the correct price, we will, at our discretion, contact you for instructions prior to shipping the order or notify you of the outright cancellation of the order. In the event that the correct price should be lower than the price paid, we will adjust your charge and give you the lower price.
  2. Misuse or abuse of a gift certificate or promotion code, including any action prohibited by or in violation of the terms and conditions of that particular code. If you are unsure of the terms and conditions of a certain code, please contact us at service@novica.com prior to placing an order.
  3. Billing information provided for the credit card does not match the information on file with the card issuing bank.
  4. Credit card declined by the financial institution.

PLEASE NOTE: The issuance of an order number or the receipt of a confirmation email does not serve as a guarantee that an order will be fulfilled. No order is final until a representative of NOVICA has confirmed that none of the aforementioned conditions apply to that order

Do the prices on your items change?

Price fluctuation occurs primarily because NOVICA products are available direct from our global offices and therefore foreign currency fluctuation impacts their price in dollars. These changes are typically very small -- however, in the case of large currency movements, the price swings can be noticeable. Another factor in price fluctuation is that artists have control over their pricing and can change their prices based on the supply and demand of their products.

What forms of payment do you accept?

NOVICA accepts payment by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover), either online through our secure server or by phone. We also accept payment by PayPal; orders placed using these payment methods must be placed online through our secure server. If you are paying via credit card and would prefer to place your order over the phone, please contact a member of our customer service team toll-free at 1-877-2-NOVICA (1-877-266-8422) or 001-210-890-4217 (Outside the US or Canada). Please note that credit cards will be charged only after an order has shipped from our fulfillment center, although an authorization will be obtained at the time the order is placed.

Is my credit card secure?

NOVICA employs the latest data encryption and security technologies to ensure that all customer payment information remains private. Below is a link to the DigiCert security report for NOVICA:

Security Report

If for any reason you feel uneasy about placing your order online, please call us to place your order by phone.

When will my card be charged?

If you pay by credit card, an authorization will be obtained when you place your order, and the card will be charged once your order has been shipped from our fulfillment center. If you ordered from multiple regions, your card will be charged separately for each region as each part of your order is shipped.

Do you charge sales tax?

Sales tax will be collected on all orders being shipped to California, Missouri and Texas. If you will be required to pay sales tax on one or more items, you will be alerted during Checkout before you submit the order.

How long will my order take to arrive?

On average, orders arrive to the destination address in 2-3 weeks. The delivery time will depend primarily on two factors: item availability and shipping service.

Item Availability:

Unless otherwise noted, all items available for purchase on the website are in stock. Items that are backordered contain a note indicating this fact as well as the expected delivery time frame.

Shipping Service:

If we determine that we will not be able to deliver an order within the promised timeframe, we will immediately contact you via email.

What shipping options do you offer?

Most items at NOVICA will ship direct to you from one of our international fulfillment centers. Shipping times do vary between different NOVICA regions, so be sure to carefully review the shipping options available for your country when selecting your shipping service. Where multiple shipping options are available, we will indicate the corresponding price and delivery timeframe for each service.

Orders containing more than one item from a single NOVICA region will be shipped once all items from that region are ready for shipment, unless otherwise specified at the time you place your order.

Do you ship to PO Box Addresses?

Yes, in many cases we are able to ship to a PO Box. Most orders with Normal shipping can ship to a PO Box, whereas orders with Expedited or Express service typically require a physical address, as those orders will be delivered by UPS, DHL, FedEx or a similar courier. We will alert you during the checkout process if one or more of the items in your order will require a physical address, based on your selection of shipping service.

What about APO/FPO/DPO addresses?

Yes, in many cases we are able to ship to APO/FPO/DPO addresses. Most orders with Normal Shipping can ship to such an address. We will alert you during the checkout process if one or more of the items in your order is not eligible for delivery to the APO/FPO/DPO address provided. Please note that expedited delivery services are not available for APO/FPO/DPO addresses, and that actual delivery time may exceed the timeframe quoted for some overseas destinations.

I shipped my order to the wrong address. Can you reship my package?

A fee will be applied to all orders where:

  1. The incorrect address has been provided by the customer and the package is returned as undeliverable
  2. An invalid address has been provided by the customer, resulting in a surcharge from the carrier. Such an error may include, but is not limited to, invalid or incomplete address information; incorrect zip code; incorrect state or country information; typographical errors; or transposed digits
  3. A move or sudden change of address results in the refusal or non-delivery of an order
  4. An APO or FPO address has been provided as the shipping address

The fee will consist of a $5.00 handling charge plus any applicable costs related to re-routing, forwarding, or redelivering the parcel(s). Please note that there is no charge for address changes that are made before an order is shipped.

Can I ship my order outside of the USA?

NOVICA is proud to offer shipment of most items to over 100 countries around the world. For a complete list of countries we currently serve, please view our International Shipping Table.

Please check with the Customs bureau in the destination country if you are unsure about any commodity-specific import regulations or restrictions that might affect your shipment. A few of the country-specific import restrictions known to affect items sold at NOVICA include, but are not limited to: (a) all jewelry items being shipped to India or France (for France, only the Standard service can be used for jewelry items); (b) all items being shipped to Australia or New Zealand that contain natural fibers (including bamboo, coconut, straw, and cane), potpourri, or animal parts (including hide, bone, and horn). NOVICA cannot be held responsible for any items quarantined, destroyed or otherwise not delivered as a result of an import restriction in any country other than the USA. For information on possible duty/tax on orders shipped to a country other than the US, please click here.

Please note: certain large or oversized items, including some furniture, are only available for shipment to the 48 contiguous U.S. states.

Will I be charged if I refuse my order?

Please note a $25.00 fee (per package) will be assessed for all refused shipments. In addition, the customer will be responsible for any return shipping charges assessed by the courier. For international (non-USA) deliveries, the customer will be responsible for any duty/VAT/import charges on refused or unclaimed shipments, in addition to return shipping costs. Shipping costs are not refundable on refused or unclaimed shipments.

Please note a $15.00 fee (per package) will be assessed for all shipments that are re-routed or returned to NOVICA by the carrier. This fee is separate from the re-shipping fee, which is required before packages can be re-shipped.

Will I have to pay taxes and duties on my order?

NOVICA will cover all duties and import taxes for customers in the United States.

Orders being shipped to addresses outside of the United States may require the recipient to pay duties upon delivery, depending on the shipping service that has been selected. During the checkout process, customers will be shown the available shipping services for their country for the specific item(s) being ordered. Each service option will clearly indicate if duty and tax will be due at the time of delivery, or if it will be pre-collected by NOVICA at the time of purchase -- in which case no further payment will be due for duty or tax once the order has been submitted. For gifts and for orders being sent to a country other than your country of residence, we strongly recommend that you select a shipping service with all duty and tax paid in advance to prevent any delays in delivery or inconvenience to the recipient.

Customers outside the United States who select a shipping service with duty and tax due at the time of delivery are encouraged to contact their local courier or customs bureau to inquire about possible import taxes and fees. NOVICA cannot be held responsible for import charges imposed by the courier and/or the local government on orders delivered to countries other than the United States. Please note that while we will declare orders containing a gift message as "Gifts" on the Customs declaration, we cannot honor any requests to alter the declared value for an order.

When should I order to guarantee delivery on or before Mother's Day?

This varies according to the region from which you are purchasing, and the shipping service you select.

How do I tell which items are guaranteed to arrive on or before Mother's Day?

We mark every item that is guaranteed for delivery on or before Mother's Day with a bow. Items marked with a red bow are guaranteed with Normal Shipping option whereas items marked with a blue bow are guaranteed with premium shipping only. If an item on the web site is not marked with a bow, it is not guaranteed for delivery on or before Mother's Day.

Will I receive items marked "coming back" on or before Mother's Day?

Although most backorders are fulfilled within 2 to 8 weeks, and we make every effort to get your order out to you as soon as possible, there are occasionally circumstances beyond our control that may result in a longer delivery time frame. You can always contact NOVICA Customer Service to inquire about the current status of your order.

Will my order be delayed if it includes a back-ordered item?

As we cannot guarantee a pre-Mother's Day delivery for back-ordered items, we advise that you do not include them in the same order as items you want guaranteed for delivery on or before Mother's Day.

Will my order be delayed if it includes items without the red bow?

If your order contains items that are no longer showing a red or blue bow... then these items (provided they are not back-ordered items) will not delay the timely delivery of items that ARE marked with a red or blue bow at the time you place the order. In this case, your order will arrive in separate packages on separate days.

What happens if an item marked with a red or blue bow arrives after Mother's Day?

In the unlikely event that we fail to deliver a guaranteed order on or before Mother's Day, we will refund the shipping costs associated with that portion of the order and provide you with a NOVICA gift certificate with a minimum value of $10.00 and a maximum value of 25% of the order total or $50.00, whichever is less. Please allow 5 to 10 business days for issuance of the credit and gift certificate. All requests related to compensation for delivery guarantee failure must be made within 2 weeks after the guaranteed delivery date either by submitting a request here or by phone at 1-877-2-NOVICA (1-877-266-8422).

My order was placed well before Mother's Day - will it arrive before then?

Depending on the shipping service you selected, and the day on which you placed your order, it is very possible that your items will arrive well before Mother's Day if you have ordered in advance of the shipping cut-off date for your items.

Will the item I ordered be gift-wrapped?

Many gift items come with free gift wrapping. We indicate on the item detail page (the page where the add to cart button shows) if an item comes with free gift wrapping. You can also select your gift wrap option in checkout.

What's the difference between free gift wrap and premium gift wrap?

Our free gift wrap option is perfectly fine for that casual gift. But if you really want to 'wow' the recipient with an exquisite, memorable gift presentation, we advise you to select the premium gift wrap option.

I placed an order with Normal Shipping - Can I expedite it?

If you have not yet received an email notification that your order has been shipped, it may still be possible to change the shipping service on your order. Please call NOVICA Customer Service at 877-266-8422 (210-890-4217 if calling internationally) any time Mon-Fri between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central time to speak to a representative.

How do I know the jewelry is real sterling silver? Is it marked?

Our sterling jewelry will either have the "925" stamp on it, or a small dumbbell sticker attached that has "925" on it (for pieces that would be difficult to stamp). We also test our artisans' jewelry periodically to ensure that it is at least 92.5% silver.

Your website says the gemstone is "enhanced". What does that mean?

Many gemstones are enhanced, most commonly to improve their color and/or clarity. Enhancement methods may include heat treatment, dyeing, bleaching, and oiling or waxing the stone. However, a stone enhancement will not affect your use or enjoyment of the jewelry in any way. Gemstones that are almost always enhanced: amethyst, citrine, blue topaz, ruby, lapis lazuli, chalcedony, and emerald. Gemstones that are never or very rarely enhanced: Guatemalan jade, garnet, peridot, unakite, rhodonite, hematite, chrysocolla, labradorite, rainbow moonstone.

Why did my sterling silver ring/bracelet turn my finger/wrist green? I thought it was genuine sterling?

The discoloration described can occur naturally for a couple of reasons. It may be that your body has a reaction to either silver or one of the other metals in the sterling alloy; it could also be that the silver is reacting with something on your hands, such as body lotion, perfume, cleaning products, etc. The discoloration is not an indication that the item is less than 92.5% silver.

My sterling silver jewelry is now black and dirty looking. Can this be removed?

Yes! Tarnish is a natural phenomenon that occurs with sterling silver (in fact, it is proof that your item is made of genuine silver!), but it can easily be removed. We recommend that you use a silver jewelry polishing cloth, which can be obtained from a jeweler and from some department and drug stores. Another option is a non-abrasive silver polishing paste, such as Wright's. Do not under any circumstances use a liquid jewelry cleaning "dip", as they can damage silver.

To slow tarnish, keep your jewelry in a dry location, and avoid getting it wet by removing it while swimming, bathing or washing dishes.

My ring does not fit / you do not offer my ring size; can the ring be resized?

That depends on the style of the ring. If a ring does not have gemstones or inlaid decoration on the band or has gemstones set only in a crown atop the ring, the band can easily be resized. Most jewelers will set a limit on the number of ring sizes increased or decreased in order to preserve the jewelry design. Ring sizing on many gemstone and diamond rings can also be altered, but the process depends on the style of the ring and the skill of the jeweler. Sometimes, a jeweler can resize a ring by two sizes but usually not more without resetting the stones. It is not recommended that a ring be adjusted by more than one or two full sizes. Rings with designs that encircle the entire shank cannot be resized.

A sterling silver ring can only be resized once, or the integrity of the metal is compromised. Also, please note that a ring cannot be returned to NOVICA if it has been resized or modified in any way.

The description on this piece of jewelry says "combination finish". What does that mean?

We provide information regarding the type of finish on any jewelry that contains precious metal. For example, a sterling silver ring could have a high-polish finish, or a hammered finish, or any of several finishes.

When a piece of jewelry features more than one kind of finish, we call that a "combination finish". For example, if a ring featured areas that were deliberately oxidized (blackened) as well as highly polished areas, that would be a combination finish. Or, if a pair of earrings had parts that were hammered silver and parts that were brushed/satin silver, that would also be considered a combination finish.

How do I/you know your gemstones are genuine? Do they come with any certification that they are real?

While we cannot test every single piece of jewelry that passes through our hands, we do regularly and randomly have our artisans' gemstones tested at accredited gem laboratories to ensure that they are genuine. We do not provide any formal certification of authenticity, but rest assured that NOVICA stands by its products and is committed to your complete satisfaction.

What is my ring size?

Download our printable ring sizing chart here to find the perfect fit. Please be sure your printer is not set 'Fit to Page' or 'Shrink to Fit' as it will result in an inaccurate printed size chart!

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
