IS ALL YITM JEWELRY ACCEPTABLE TO WEAR AS ENGAGEMENT OR WEDDING JEWELRY?
Any ring can be presented as an engagement ring, but not all rings are the best choice for every day forever wear. Diamonds, sapphires and gold are the traditional materials to wear as engagement or wedding jewelry because they are the most durable. Only these three materials are our recommendation for use as an engagement ring. Sunstones, emeralds, opals and inlay stones are beautiful accents, but should not be considered up for every day, forever wear in an engagement ring stack. It’s a big decision to represent your love with fine jewelry, consider a versatile set that can we worn in all the different times and events in your life. All jewelry requires care and attention. Jewelry should be taken off before bathing, swimming, yoga, working out, doing the dishes, etc.
We recommend a simple pure gold band as the everyday forever ring. Our inlay & diamond crowns can be worn as the occasion permits as accents to your diamond or sapphire engagement ring.
If you have questions about the wearability of any YITM piece, please email us and we can make recommendations of stacking sets and the versatility of the piece!
HOW DO I KNOW MY RING SIZE?
You can order a ring sizer on us through our Ring Sizer page. We can also size you locally at our store in Denver.
Any jeweler should be able to size your finger at no cost. A jeweler can also determine your size based off a current ring that you know fits properly.
Please note that many elements can affect your ring size including hydration, elevation, weather, and time of year. Please be aware of where and when you've been sized. This is especially important if you are not from Denver but being sized at our store located 5,280 feet above sea level.
CAN YITM JEWELRY BE RESIZED?
We now offer complementary resizing on all Available Now Rings. Most jewelry can be resized up or down within 3 sizes. Please see specific listing for sizing details. If the ring of your choosing is unable to be resized for you, please reach out for a Made to Order option. Please note that Resized jewelry is FINAL SALE and is not eligible for a return or exchange. We offer one free resize for any jewelry purchased directly from our website or flagship Denver studio. All additional sizing will occur a $50 fee.
WHERE IS THE BEST PLACE TO SEE YITM WORK IN PERSON?
Our engagement work is only available online through our website. However, you can see our engagement samples in person at our store in Denver, CO. Our Denver gallery is available by appointment only. Please book online.
Our everyday collection of necklaces and earrings, are sold around the country in over 95+ beautiful boutiques. See our retailers list on our contact page.
DO YOU DO CUSTOM WORK OR ALLOW MODIFICATIONS OF YOUR STYLES?
We do not do custom work. The designs we have available online are pieces we stand behind and enjoy making. We do not take custom requests or modifications to existing styles. You are welcome to choose your own inlay stone and size from the styles listed in the "MADE TO ORDER" section, but other edits or modifications complicate the process and risk the integrity of our original designs.
HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY ORDER?
All YITM work is made by hand in our Denver, CO studio. Building and fabricating jewelry by hand takes time and we ask for your patience and understanding as we hand craft each piece. Unless is from the AVAILABLE section, which will ship in 3 days, all MADE TO ORDER work takes 6-8 weeks. Each listing has specific production times. Please make sure this timeline fits with your schedule.
IF I ORDER A “MADE TO ORDER” PIECE & AN “AVAILABLE NOW” PIECE, WHEN WILL THEY ARRIVE?
The inlay stones offered in each jewelry listing are what is available in our current collection. Occasionally we offer new unique stones on Instagram. If you like something we’ve posted and would like us to use it in your jewelry, please select "OTHER" and then leave us the request in the "NOTES" section of the order form. Stones vary in regard to their color and pattern naturally, but will always be chosen for their unique beauty. It is impossible to perfectly match a specific stone you have seen in the past, so embrace this natural variation and love the stone you receive.
If you choose one of our exact stone options from out vast collection to use in a Made to Order piece, the sale is final and the jewelry is not eligible for a return.
CAN YOU USE SAPPHIRES OR OTHER STONES IN PLACE OF DIAMONDS?
We choose to offer our jewelry featuring the most beautiful, conflict free, faceted stones. We only use diamonds unless otherwise listed. No substitutions.
IF I SEND YOU A PHOTO OF A RING I SAW ONLINE CAN YOU MAKE IT FOR ME?
We do not do custom work. Our designs are a result of our creativity. Being asked to copy another artists design is unethical. We would never do that, and we would also never want another artist to be asked to reproduce our designs. It’s important to support the artists you admire and buy direct from the artist themselves.
CAN YOU CREATE A STYLE IN GOLD PLATE OR PURE SILVER IF COST IS AN ISSUE FOR ME?
Our jewelry is sold exactly as listed. We are a fine jewelry company and do not use plated materials.
WHY DO I NOT SEE LAPIS LAZULI AS AN INLAY STONE OPTION ANYMORE?
After 1/1/2017 we have decided to focus on AMERICAN MINED inlay stones to insure the safety of the miners and the integrity of the mining process.
I OWN A STORE AND WOULD LIKE TO SELL YITM JEWELRY.
We are always open to new wholesale accounts and would love to hear a little bit about your store and how we could collaborate or be featured! Contact Hana at firstname.lastname@example.org
I LIVE ABROAD AND ONLY KNOW MY RING SIZE AS A LETTER.
No worries. International letter sizes an be converted to US sizes with a simple chart online. You can also leave your letter size in the order form and we will take care of the conversion for you!
WHY ARE YOU NOT USING THE WORDS "CONFLICT FREE" ANYMORE?
Our supplier for newly mined, "conflict free" diamonds has earned certification from the Responsible Jewelry Council, verifying that they are in compliance with the Kimberley Accord and that their stones, their supply chain, and their facility meet the high standards of the RJC Code of Practices. However, Jewelers that use “conflict free” to describe diamonds are limiting themselves to the Kimberley Process' definition. What this definition leaves out is large numbers of diamonds that are included by violence, human rights abuses, poverty and environmental degradation. We are focusing our attention to transitioning to recycled melee diamonds and now offer a collection of recycled solitaire diamonds as well. Recycling is the most responsible choice because they require no new energy to produce.
ARE THE MATERIALS YOU USE RECYCLED?
We use a combination of recycled, newly mined and Fairmined gold depending on the project. We prioritize recycled gold and Fairmined gold whenever possible. Our collection features recycled diamond melee in almost all but 10% of our styles. Those specific styles that requires use of newly mined diamonds are "conflict free."
I HAVE A HEIRLOOM DIAMOND. CAN YOU WORK WITH MY STONE?
See our Heirloom Stones page for more info.
CAN I JUST BUY ONE OF YOUR SETTINGS AND HAVE ANOTHER JEWELER SET MY STONE?
Unfortunately not. Only complete rings are sold at this time.
CAN I PAY IN INSTALLMENTS?
Yes! We offer two different "Buy Now Pay Later" offerings, Affirm and Shop Pay. They allow you to receive the item before payment is complete. We can also invoice you outside of the website, however the piece will not ship until its paid in full. Contact us for more details.
CAN JEWELRY BE RUSH ORDERED IF I HAVE AN OCCASION OR EVENT ?
Often jewelry can be rushed in order to meet a deadline or special event. There will be a 15% RUSH FEE applied to your order that must be paid before jewelry is put into production. Please email to see if the specific piece you need can be rushed. We will do whatever we can to help you.
Can I solder together my solitaire to my inlay ring crown?
We do not recommend solitaires to be joined to their crown companions. Inlay jewelry needs to be removed for activities such as swimming, weight lifting, mountain biking etc. No inlay stone is nearly as durable as a sapphire or a diamond. Because they require different and separate care, we do not recommend that the two be joined. In addition, we will be unable to repair either and the warranty will be voided if the rings are soldered by an outside jeweler.
