HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY JEWELRY?
Our pieces are delicate by nature, so we encourage our customers to take extra care when wearing Sofia Zakia pieces, especially rings. Please try to remove jewelry when doing rough handwork that may damage the stones. We also recommend removing your jewelry when washing your hands, showering and sleeping.
Sofia Zakia is not responsible for broken or lost stones, however we offer stone replacements for a reasonable repair fee. We also offer polishing and resizing of most Sofia Zakia products. Kindly note that eternity band models cannot be resized.
WHAT IS THE PRODUCTION TIME?
For the most up-to-date production timeline, please check the pop-up agreement window during the checkout process.
All jewelry pieces are made to order, so please allow a minimum of 14 business days for jewelry to be made before shipping.
During periods of higher volume, such as the holidays, production time may increase to 3-4 weeks. Please write requested deadline date at time of order in order for our team to best meet your needs.
If you need an estimated shipping date or a rush order, please e-mail us and we will do our best to meet your request!
DO YOU GIFT WRAP?
Our pieces come elegantly packaged in uncoated cotton board from sustainable sources with our logo foil stamped in rose on the box lid, which rest assured is very pretty. Non-jewelry items arrive in their own individual packaging, often vellum or tissue-wrapped. If you wish to have further gift wrapping, the option for it is available here. If you would like a personalized card included, please let us know with your order.

Questions on CUSTOM WORK
CAN YOU MAKE ME A CUSTOM PIECE?
Yes! We do offer bespoke engagement rings and other commissioned pieces. Should you be interested in this, please navigate to the bespoke form to discuss requirements.
Please note that bespoke pieces may take 6 or more weeks to create, depending on the complexity of the project.
I LIKE A PIECE IN YOUR STORE, BUT I’D LIKE A DIFFERENT STONE.
In most cases, this shouldn’t be a problem. If you don’t see the gemstone(s) you are interested in having on your Sofia Zakia piece in the drop-down menu of the product, please e-mail us. Kindly note that stone customization may not always be available, and the cost will reflect the changes made.
I DON’T SEE MY SIZE IN YOUR SHOP.
We try our best to offer inclusive sizing. Our website does not include all the sizes we offer. If you do not see your size listed (including quarter sizes), please e-mail us and we will do our best to meet your needs!
I’D LIKE TO GET MYSELF/MY BELOVED A RING, BUT I DON’T KNOW THEIR SIZE.
Don’t panic! We recommend going to a local jeweller to determine your proper ring size. Alternatively, inexpensive ring sizers are available for purchase online. You may also try to use this website to determine your ring size. Please note that we are responsible for sending you the ring size you ordered. Mandrels and sizers may vary internationally, so please do your best to find a US ring sizer, as we are not responsible for determining your ring size or accommodating returns based on inaccurate ring sizing outside of our production studio.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM ENGRAVING?
Yes. Should you be interested in having a piece custom engraved (not stamped), please contact us by e-mail for rates and styles offered. We are unable to engrave on thin band models, such as the Wandering Star ring at this time.
CAN YOU SET MY HEIRLOOM STONE IN ONE OF YOUR SETTINGS?
You are very lucky to have a beautiful heirloom stone! We are currently closed to setting heirloom stones into existing Sofia Zakia pieces or custom designs at this time.
