PLACING YOUR ORDER
By placing an order, you agree to all our Terms & Conditions.
TURNAROUND TIME – We are fast! FedEx & UPS orders finalized before noon (M.S.T.) will almost always be shipped the same day. However, shipment turnaround time will depend on daily order volume. If we cannot get in touch with you or if we have a question about your order it will delay your shipment. Please provide valid phone, text and email information with your orders!
CRITICAL ITEMS - If an item is crucial to your order, please let us know so we can verify availability. Please also request a call or text in the checkout comments section so the order does not ship without "the one thing you really needed." Call backs may delay your order if we cannot get in touch with you.
AVAILABILITY - We can offer availability information at the time of your order. This is the best information we have based on inventory levels in our computer system. However, computer inventory levels are sometimes inaccurate due to product weight conversions and other factors. You will only be charged for the quantity that ships.
ORDER ADDITIONS & HOLD FOR STOCK REQUESTS - Order additions can only be added to an order in process if it has not been boxed and shipped yet. Otherwise, they will ship separately at customer expense. Add-ons and hold for stock lines will be priced at the market basis on the day stock is both available and added to the order.
BACKORDERS - We will only backorder items when you specifically ask us to do so at the time of your order. There is a $30 per item minimum on backorders. We will reserve stock for a max of 4 business days after you are notified that backorder items have arrived. You will be charged the current market price when you confirm acceptance of backordered merchandise after it is available again. Please note that you will receive the quantity break based on your original order quantity on backorder shipments even though the automated shopping cart system will show the break based on the backorder quantity remaining. We update pricing when we import into our internal computer system.
PRODUCT PRICING & AVAILABILITY - Products made from gold or silver alloys are priced based on daily commodity markets as described under the sub-heading Market Based Metals Pricing.
Though Halstead makes reasonable attempts to ensure that the products listed on the Website are in stock and that the prices for all products are accurate, from time to time Halstead's Website may contain incorrect prices or incorrectly reflect the amount of stock of a particular product. Additionally, because many of Halstead's products are made from gold or silver alloys and are priced based on daily commodity markets, Halstead's prices may change quickly. All listings for products on the Website are an invitation to deal and Halstead reserves the right to modify the pricing of any products prior to shipment. If Halstead identifies that a price reflected on the Website is incorrect or a product listed on the Website and ordered by you is unexpectedly out of stock, Halstead will contact you in a reasonable time frame to advise you of the issue. You will only be charged for products that are shipped by Halstead.
MAXIMUM DISCOUNT - We offer a special discount program on orders over $2,000. These orders receive the best price break for the pricing class on all items, regardless of the individual quantities. You still must order in standard pack sizes and you must request this discount before placing your order. Each order must be over $2,000 to qualify for the discount. Please contact customer service for details.
CHAIN POLICIES - All chain footage is sold in minimum quantities of 12 inches unless otherwise noted with a 10ft minimum. If our only inventory available is in separate pieces shorter than 10ft, we will contact you to confirm before shipping. On spooled lengths 25ft or longer, we cannot guarantee continuous footage since all chain factories join segments when spooling. We will not re-spool to check for factory segmenting.
BULK WIRE POLICIES – Minimum quantity for bulk jewelry wire is 1 troy ounce per stock number. Order any greater amounts in 1 ounce increments. We cannot always guarantee one continuous length for the entire amount ordered but will contact you for confirmation if we only have segments available. It is difficult to precisely weigh small wire coils before making a cut from the larger coil; therefore, please expect plus or minus 10% variance from the precise weight you request. You will be invoiced for the exact weight you receive.
LATE ORDER CANCELLATIONS – May incur a 10% restocking fee to cover order preparation and return labor.
CREDIT CARD DATA – Please note that we no longer store credit card data at Halstead and we can only view part of your credit card data. The rest is stored by fully compliant, secure national processors. This is for the safety of your personal information and to ensure that we meet the highest standards of data security.
FRAUD PREVENTION – We reserve the right to require additional identity confirmation documentation prior to processing orders. We also reserve the right to request payment by bank transfer instead of credit card if we cannot adequately verify card ownership. This is for cardholder protection. Thank you for your patience.
We close for major US holidays. We also close for winter break every year from just before Christmas until the first business day in January. Please plan your ordering accordingly. During holiday closures, we apply the fix rates from the business day prior to close to all orders received over the closure period.
MARKET BASED METALS PRICING
We use daily market-based pricing for all precious metal merchandise. We update prices at approximately 4pm MST time each business day with the precious metal fixes posted earlier in the day on the Kitco NY a.m. website.
Market fix currently used

During holiday closures, we apply the fix rates from the business day prior to close to all orders received over the closure period.
Sales order pricing is effective on the business day the order is submitted into our internal system. If you have been working on a shopping cart order for several days or more, the prices will update when you confirm on the order review page with current pricing for your review prior to submitting the order. Please note that Customer Service only has access to current pricing. Increment lists are available by request.
*Please note that SN prefix sterling items are updated every few months instead of daily.

SIGNATURE REQUIREMENTS – If you request that a package be left on a doorstep without a signature you may waive your declared value insurance coverage. Please arrange for delivery at a location with a person present. Signatures are mandatory for packages valued over $1,000.
FedEx and USPS have varying policies and procedures for when they require a signature for delivery and when they do not. However, it is important to note that both carriers ultimately give final discretion to your specific delivery driver regardless of whether you have paid for a signature/no signature designation. This discretion is the policy of the carriers and we do not have influence over their procedures.
SHIPMENT LOSS OR DAMAGE - Once packages leave our building, they are the responsibility of the shipping provider you choose. We will facilitate any loss or damage claims when packages are insured by an outside provider. Porch pirates have become a real problem. Packages left unattended outside of a door are considered delivered and not covered by insurance. Due to the value of our product, it is best if shipments from Halstead are delivered to an address with a recipient present to receive the package. We cannot ship replacements for lost merchandise during carrier claim waiting periods without payment according to our normal terms.
Order filling and shipping transit times do not include weekends and holidays. Weather delays along the route can affect delivery times.

ANTI-TARNISH TREATMENT & OXIDIZING SILVER
In the printed catalog and website product listings, we have flagged sterling silver items that are known to be treated with anti-tarnish spray, dip, or e-coating with the green dot notation. Online, you can filter product listing pages by surface treatments. Most of these treatments are temporary and will have various efficacies depending on storage conditions, time since production, climate and air particulates in your area. These items are NOT guaranteed to resist tarnish for any amount of time. However, treated items will be resistant to after-market oxidation with liver of sulfur or other methods. We do not recommend attempting to oxidize these items. They may resist oxidation all together or yield poor, splotchy results.

Duties and taxes are obligatory regardless of the shipping method you choose.
CREDIT CARDS - We accept foreign Visa & Mastercard payments.
