Orders are shipped from our Montreal studio (Montreal, Quebec, H3Z 2A5 Canada) to a delivery address provided by the retailer at the time of order. Sofia Zakia pieces ship via Canada Post or FedEx unless otherwise specified. If there is a preference, please note so at the time of order.
North American orders typically ship via FedEx Economy or Express. Orders with a value greater than 800 USD will automatically ship via FedEx Express (approx. 2-3 day shipping), paid for by the stockist in order to avoid incurring brokerage fees. Shipping costs are calculated based on delivery address, but to US addresses are generally around 65 USD.
For orders shipping to the retailer, unless otherwise specified, shipping costs and duties incurred are covered by the retailer by providing either a shipping account number or having shipping charges added to the invoice. For drop-ship orders, customers pay for shipping unless otherwise specified.

Risk of damage passes on to the retailer on delivery. Sofia Zakia must be notified of any damages or losses in transit within 48 hours of receipt of goods. All items are sent with tracking information, however risk of loss passes to the retailer at the time of dispatch.
Jewelry can be repaired at an additional charge quoted on a by-case basis. Meticulous care has been taken at the time of conception to ensure stones are set securely, however Sofia Zakia is not responsible for the loss of stones after purchase. Clients should be made aware by the retailer that stone settings should be checked regularly.
We stress the importance of choosing jewelry that is appropriate for your client’s lifestyle. Sofia Zakia pieces are dainty and fragile by nature, so clients should also be advised by retailers to remove their jewelry during any extensive activities or when in water. Shipping costs will be covered by Sofia Zakia if the damage is due to a fault with the item, but will be covered by the client if the damage is caused through negligence. Repairs for pieces dated older than 45 days from date of shipment delivery may incur fees.
Ring resizing can be done for most pieces. Re-sizes will cost 50 USD. Some designs cannot be resized, so please contact us for details.

Failure to do this may result in duties and customs being charged, for which we will require retailer to expense.
