• Pieces are made to order and have a 7-10 day turnaround. However, I'm sometimes able to complete and ship sooner.

• If you have ordered more than one item, production time will take longer. Please allow this extra time so that I can be sure your items arrive as they should.

• Need a rush order? Please get in contact prior to checkout to see if I can accommodate.

• MINIMA is registered with the Goldsmiths Assay Office in London and in accordance with UK law, all items will be hallmarked if they exceed the following weight:

1g for Gold

7.78g for Silver

Please note, many of the items made are below these thresholds to keep processing time & costs to a minimum. Some items below these weights may be stamped with 375 (9ct Gold) or 925 (Sterling Silver) to indicate composition but these are not official hallmarks by an UK Assay Office.

If you'd like items under 1g of gold hallmarked, please contact me to discuss.


If you request a custom order or an item in a large size, it may exceed these weights and will require hallmarking at an extra cost and increased manufacturing time. I will contact you if this is the case.
