We usually ship within a day of receiving your order, but please allow between 2 - 5 days for delivery.
We offer free shipping on all domestic U.S. orders and ship via USPS priority mail. Overnight shipping via USPS is also available. We ship most international orders via USPS. If you live in a region that has limited postage options and prefer we use a carrier like DHL, FedEx or UPS, please write to let us know: email@example.com.
Yes, we ship next-day via USPS. Depending on your location and the time the delivery is picked up, overnight shipments can take two days.
If you place your order before 12:00 EST, we will do our best to ship it out the same or next day. For personalized engravings, we still need to factor in production time before shipping. We will expedite as much as possible on our end and your order will arrive the day after we ship it.
We love to meet our customers in person and will accommodate this as often as we can. We can alternatively work with you to arrange a messenger who will hand deliver your order to you the same day. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Yes! When you're on any product page, you'll see a little box that says "This is a gift." Just check that box, and you'll get a pop-up where you can add the recipient's mailing address, as well as an option to add a blank or customized gift note, free of charge.
We don't offer gift wrapping because our packaging is already gift-worthy! Each of our pieces comes packaged in a custom-designed storybook gift box. If the piece you're gifting comes with a fortune, we'll include a duplicate fortune and a blank fortune in a mini fortune envelope within the box. We also offer custom or blank gift notes, free of charge. To see our gift options, just click the box that says "This is a gift" when you're on any product page.
Our fortunes measure 2.20" x 0.45".
Yes, you can switch out our fortune with one you've been holding onto any time and as often as you like.
We get this question a lot, so we wrote a long blog post about it here. The short answer is that there is no one standard fortune size. Our fortunes measure 2.20 x 0.45", which is one of the handful of sizes you can get in a fortune cookie. The good news is that most fortunes contain a lot of extra white space, so if the one you have is too wide or long for our pieces, you can gently fold or trim it to fit.
We get this request all the time, and are working behind the scenes to make this a reality. In the meantime, please email us your fortune request at email@example.com and we'll work to get you replacement fortunes asap.
This depends on the piece. Our Fortune Lockets can generally hold up to three fortunes comfortably. Our medium Fortune Cookie Locket only holds one rolled-up fortune, while our large Fortune Cookie Locket can hold two. Our Fortune Capsule pieces all hold only one rolled-up fortune, except for the Heart + Arrow Locket and Bracelet, which can each hold two.
Our fortunes are a mix of original messages written by Fortune & Frame's founder Gretel Going, thoughts shared by our customers, and famous quotes that do a good job of expressing the right sentiments in a range of pivotal life moments. Our fortune gallery contains at least 200 fortunes that were adapted from notes-to-self Gretel wrote during the two-year journey leading up to the launch of Fortune & Frame.
As long as you don't wear our fortune lockets or fortune-holding jewelry in water, the fortune should remain unharmed and in its original condition. Our fortune lockets all have a glass window that protects the fortune, and our fortune capsules and fortune cookies are air tight while shut.
Yes, we can often cast pieces in most available metals, including White Gold, Platinum, 18K and 24K gold, and so forth, upon request.
For special metal requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your metal preference and pricing. Please note: All special orders are considered final and non-refundable.
Our plated silver and brass pieces are very heavily coated and do not fade easily. Our plated necklaces will stand the test of time with proper care. Don't wear in the water or spray perfume on them directly. We recommend removing plated rings while washing your hands to preserve plating.
Because our pieces are so heavily plated, they don't easily tarnish and they offer a layer of protection between your skin and the brass. Our long fortune lockets usually don't make direct contact with your skin, unless worn double wrapped. If you know you will be out in extremely salty air or exposed to salt water, we recommend storing your plated brass pieces in a dry place.
Some people have strong reactions to brass, while others have no reaction at all. If you are susceptible to these reactions, we suggest purchasing sterling silver or plated silver jewelry.
Vermeil is 14K Gold-plated sterling silver. In order for a piece to be considered vermeil, the plating must be 2.5 microns (250 mils) thick. As a point of comparison, standard flash plating is about 0.4 microns (40 mils) thick and wears off more quickly.
Silver naturally tarnishes and can temporarily lose its luster over time, but it's very easy to clean. You can either use a dedicated jewelry cloth or silver jewelry cleaner to restore its shine.
Though we use a very thick layer of plating, pieces that are in direct contact with your skin (such as rings or shorter necklaces) will be susceptible to wear quicker than those that are not. Should the plating on your piece begin to wear, you can have it re-plated by a local jeweler or we can have it done for you at cost, plus the price of shipping.
