Can I update the shipping on my order after placing?

As soon as you can, just email humansbeforehandles@gmail.com to update your shipping information. We are unable to make changes to the items in your order once it has been placed, so sorry for this inconvenience! We are happy to cancel the order and help you place a new one, though.

When should I remove my jewelry?

Your earrings are made for everyday wear, but not everyday handling. We suggest earrings be put on and stay on for optimal use and wear. When we remove them for bed, workouts, showering, they can weaken and the brass can turn over time. Also, keep them away from perfume and excessive water to avoid discolouring.

How should I care for my jewelry?

All our products are imported and made with love. 

Lead Free 
Nickel Free 
Base, Brass Metal Alloy / Hypo-allergenic backs 

Please be care and make sure your earrings are stored in a safe place, keep them away from perfume and excessive water to avoid discolouring. Some pieces may be delicate so take care of your jewels when wearing and storing. Damage from careless wear or storage is not the responsibility of Humans Before Handles. 

For a light cleaning, we recommend a soft, jewelry wipe.

Need to make an  exchange for Faulty Goods?

If your goods arrive faulty or damaged, we are more than happy to offer an exchange on unworn and undamaged faulty items that still have the earring card and backs attached, but you must let us know within 48 hours from receipt by emailing us at humansbeforehandles@gmail.com quoting your order number.

Please understand all products featuring cubic zirconia, and brass finishes will vary in appearance. This is not considered a flaw in the product and will not be the reason for replacement.

Thanks for thinking of us as the perfect gift for your loved one. We are happy to include a note on a letterhead notecard if you would like to gift our earrings. Please email us at humansbeforehandles@gmail.com and we will get you squared away!
