Frequently Asked Questions
We are now open – no appointment needed! We are still limiting store capacity so that we can maintain social distancing and to allow for proper cleaning between customers. If we’re at capacity when you arrive, please knock to let us know you’re here and wait outside. We can’t wait to see you! If you think you’ll be short on time and don’t want to risk waiting, or if you’re coming in for a special occasion like engagement ring shopping, you are still welcome to book an appointment (click here). If you’re not quite ready to come into the store, you can also book a virtual appointment and we will be happy to help you from afar. We can’t wait to see you! We are also still offering free curbside pickup and home delivery within 10 miles of our store. Select which option you prefer at checkout.
We pride ourselves on providing excellent, personal customer service and a fabulous shopping experience. We love to help you find that perfect gift — or maybe a special treat just for you. If you have a question or problem, we want to be sure you get help promptly.
Here is some commonly requested information. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to get ahold of us: firstname.lastname@example.org or 541.342.8686.
Can you help me select something?
Laura, our Web Store Manager, managed the store in Eugene for over four years and although she loves running this website, she misses the fun of getting to help customers find the perfect gift!
If you need ideas, inspiration or just some good ol’ fashioned advice, please drop her a line at email@example.com and she will be happy to guide you towards something wonderful. Whether it’s a treat for yourself, a gift for someone dear, or someone you barely know (we’ve all been there!), she is always ready to help!
SPECIAL ORDERS & CUSTOM SIZING
I know what I’m looking for but don’t see it. Can you order it for me?
Possibly. Because our pieces are handmade, they sometimes go out of stock. If you don’t see a piece you are looking for, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 541.342.8686 and we will be more than happy to contact the designer and special order the piece for you if it is available. Expedited special orders may incur additional charges.
How can I be sure a piece will fit? Do you do custom sizing?
Yes. We want to make sure your favorite piece is the perfect fit. Please ask if you have questions about ring sizes, chain lengths, etc.
If we need to do a custom alteration, you can expect about 4-8 weeks for delivery. If there is a situation in which you need the item sooner, please contact us and we will do our best to expedite your order. There may be additional charges for some alterations.
Rings: If the ring you wish to purchase is not shown to be available in your size, please contact us about resizing or special-ordering options. We don’t want you waiting any longer than you have to so we strongly recommend taking the time to ensure the accuracy of your ring size before the order is placed. Email or call us and we will gladly walk you through the sizing process.
All special orders and custom alterations must be paid in full before the order is processed. These are considered final sales and cannot be returned or exchanged. Special orders can be canceled only within 2 business days of being placed.
Can I return something if it wasn’t quite right after all?
Yes! We want you to love each and every one of your purchases from newtwist.com! If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, we will gladly accept a return within 10 days of receipt for a full refund, and you will be sent a prepaid return label. There is no charge for returns. However, all special orders, and exchanged items are FINAL SALES and cannot be exchanged or returned. Our online return policy does not apply to purchases made in our Eugene store.
