Frequently Asked Questions

I just placed my order. When can I expect to receive my jewelry?
Orders are shipped within 7 days of the purchase/payment date. We process orders Tuesday-Friday during business hours. Orders placed over the weekend will be processed on the following Tuesday. Please keep in mind that we make everything by hand in our studio and certain pieces are made to order. If your order is time sensitive, please feel free to contact us via email and we will try to get it out as soon as possible. We cannot guarantee shipping dates for orders. Standard shipping does not include insurance and has limited tracking information.

I haven't received my item yet, and I think it may have gotten lost in the mail. What should I do?
We recommend contacting USPS directly if you believe your package to be lost or stolen. We have no control over what happens when your order leaves our studio and Fresh Tangerine is not responsible for packages that are lost or stolen in transit.

I need the exact same ring in a different size!
We are unable to offer exchanges for online orders at this time. The easiest way to exchange your ring is by placing a new order and returning your other ring for a refund. If the item(s) being returned were a gift, please fill out the return form for an online credit. This is the only way we can accommodate online exchanges.

For in-store orders, please bring your item to the store in its original condition within 14 days of purchase, along with a valid receipt. A sales associate will assist you with an exchange.

How can I return my order?
We want you to love your new piece! If for some reason you are not completely satisfied, we will accept unworn pieces in their original condition within 14 days of receipt for online orders and 14 days of purchase for in-store orders. Any returns after this time are accepted on a case-by-case basis and will be subject to a 50% restocking fee.

If your return is outside of the 14-day policy, please email us at to request a return. Please do not ship your item until you've received confirmation from us that we will honor your return. Items returned outside of the 14 days without prior approval may be refused and is the customer's responsibility to pay for shipping to return the items.

I forgot to use my discount code when I checked out. Can you refund me the discount amount?
Unfortunately we cannot process discount codes retroactively; however, your discount code will stay active for a future purchase. Sale discount codes expire at the end of the sale and cannot be combined with other ongoing sales or sale items.

Can I use multiple discount codes on my purchase?
We are unable to "stack" discounts in the same order. For example, if you are using a special promotional code, you will not be able to use the discount code from signing up for our mailing list. Only one discount code can be used per order.
