Special Orders

When you love a piece of jewelry that is out of stock you can make a special order. It should take at least 3 weeks to finish your order (sometimes sooner). But with Aldrich Art jewelry re-orders there are special concerns that you as the customer need to be aware of.

Classic Collection
Each piece of inlay is re-created by hand. We strive to match any re-order as precisely as we are able. That being said sometimes some stones and colors are very hard to match, as each stone is unique in its own make up, especially if it has a certain type of matrix or distinctive coloring. However, we are known to be able to match pieces fairly accurately.

Signature, Bling, Traditional, Original, and Urban Collections
Our signature, bling, traditional, original, and urban collections are made up of jewelry that we make that cannot be reproduced exactly. We can make similar pieces and similar silverwork but the stones will never be exactly the same. In these collections we have included our JuJu jewelry, dual-finger rings, gemstone jewelry (Bling Collection), and necklaces that resemble dog tags.

Galaxy Collection
Our Galaxy Collection is comprised of jewelry that has druzy stones. Each one of these stones is hand picked by Valerie Aldrich for their beauty. Druzies are geode-like stones that the earth has formed, creating a unique rock. A few of our vendors enhance the stone, which creates some of the coloring. At Aldrich Art we choose the stones for each piece but we do not cab or polish this stone. When re-creating this type of jewelry, the silver work can be matched precisely but the stone cannot be, ensuring a truly unique piece of jewelry. If you want to special order from this collection we would be happy to work with you through email or over the phone to try and find a stone that you will love from what we have in stock. Below are a few pictures of some pieces that we have re-created for special orders.  Click the image to enlarge.
