Do you have a payment plan?

Yes, for USA clients - please use AFFIRM at checkout to apply! Affirm only accepts USA clients right now, but hopes to expand that in the future. Affirm is a financing alternative to credit cards and other credit-payment products. Affirm offers instant financing for online purchases to be paid in fixed monthly installments over 3, 6, or 12 months. You are very highly likely to be accepted too! 

Why buy with Affirm?
  • Buy and receive your purchase right away, and pay for it over several months. This payment option allows you to split the price of your purchase into fixed payment amounts that fit your monthly budget.
  • If Affirm approves your loan, you'll see your loan terms before you make your purchase. See exactly how much you owe each month, the number of payments you must make, and the total amount of interest you’ll pay over the course of the loan. There are no hidden fees.
  • The application process is secure and real-time. Affirm asks you for a few pieces of information. After you provide this information, Affirm notifies you of the loan amount that you’re approved for, the interest rate, and the number of months that you have to pay off your loan -- all within seconds.
  • You don’t need a credit card to make a purchase. Affirm lends to the merchant directly on your behalf.
  • You may be eligible for Affirm financing even if you don’t have an extensive credit history. Affirm bases its loan decision not only on your credit score, but also on several other data points about you. 
  • Affirm reminds you by email and SMS before your upcoming payment is due. Enable Autopay to schedule automatic monthly payments on your loan.

Jewelry Questions

What metal and stones are the strongest?

10k gold and 14k gold in white, yellow, or rose gold will be the strongest options. Sterling is soft, and so is Platinum. The lower amount of gold (10k), the stronger it is, as gold is a softer metal. Other metals are added to gold to strengthen, creating 14k and 18k. We love 14k for the saturation in color of course and great strength!

What is your production turnaround time?

When your order is placed, production time could be anywhere between 10 business days to 6 weeks. This just depends on the process. If we are handmaking your design, getting it casted, or, say, having to design it all from scratch and then get it casted, etc. Please contact us at least 6 weeks in advance of your needed ring. That way, there is plenty of time. If you are leaving for a trip/moving, please get in touch much sooner.

Do you do standard jeweler work - set my stone, use my gold?

Our type of work as a jewelry brand limits us in our time and in our insurance capacity to do this type of work. We cannot use your stone(s), and we cannot sell, melt, or reuse your metal.

Do you use sustainable metal practices and ethically sourced gems?

This is an important discussion! Click here to read about our stones and sourcing!

 

How do I best care for my Midwinter Co. jewelry?

Please be careful with chemical use and be aware of how it effects your metals. To best avoid any of the residue buildup that comes with regular wear, you can clean your jewelry regularly at home with warm water, gentle soap, and a toothbrush.  

To maintain the quality of your jewelry, remove before showering, gardening, using cleaning chemicals, applying makeup and lotions, swimming, and exercising. Exposure to any harsh chemicals or heavy pressure will put your jewelry at risk.

Store your jewelry in a soft pouch or lined jewelry box away from touching other jewelry.
