(Frequently Asked Questions)
Are the earrings heavy even though they are large?
Not heavy, they are extremely lightweight.
Each style/size has a different weight, but even our largest earrings are very light in weight.
Are all of the earrings really hand-painted?
It might be hard to believe but the answer is Yes.
Status Avenue™ earrings are ALL hand-painted and hand-detailed (unless otherwise stated).
Are these earrings costume jewelry?
Yes, our earrings are considered costume jewelry meaning they are not made of "real metals such as 10K, 14K gold, platinum etc."
However, our earring posts (the part that inserts into pierced ears) are 925 silver plated (on brass) and are nickel free.
Do you ship worldwide?
Yes, however you need to email us first to STATUSAVENUE@GMAIL.COM, with the earrings you would like to purchase with postal code of where it will be shipped too. We will get back to you with the most accurate quote. * Please note- Upon finalizing customer orders, some shipping/billing addresses may need time for verification, especially if shipping area/country is flagged "high risk" for fraud.
Does my earring shipment come with tracking?
Great question! Our earrings are shipped with tracking (unless otherwise discussed/stated). We want you to be able to track them so you know where they are, so that you can arrange to pick them up or be home to receive them. Also, it is in our best interest to know where they are as well for our own records.
How long for my earring order?
Depending on the amount of orders and availability, please allow up to 14 business days. Please understand the nature of our handcrafted business. Of course, there are those good ol' holidays that will affect and delay orders. We truly appreciate your purchase and patience. Feel free to contact us at STATUSAVENUE@GMAIL.COM for any inquiries you may have.
Will the colour come off the earrings such as rub off?
No, our earrings are topped with a protective coating that allows you to wipe them (dry tissue or lightly dampened tissue) from make up or sweat easily. Avoid rubbing too hard or abrasively just to be safe. Store your earrings in the white box it came in or any other box you'd like and avoid storing in extreme cold/hot temperatures. They have been worn in some pools/salt water oceans which seem to hold up ok as far as we know. However, it's up to the wearers discretion to do so, we will not be held accountable should earrings be ruined while wearing in pool, in salt or chlorinated water or by doing any other activity that may affect earrings.
They can be worn in hot, sunny climates doing usual things however, just like anything else sitting in/under any extreme cold/hot temperatures they may or may not be affected over time. We want your earrings to last and believe they will, especially if you take care of them, store them as suggested (in the box, and away from direct cold/heat).
The earrings should not rub off with regular wear and care.
For the earring gift sets, is the gift wrapping on the shipment box or it's separate?
Glad you asked! For the gift sets- the gift wrapping option is for the items seen in the sets, the shipping box does not have any gift wrap options. All of the gift set items will have the options of no wrapping or clear cellophane wrapping (like you would see a gift basket wrapped and everything can be seen wrapped up in one).
If you order more than 1 gift set, each set will be wrapped separately. If you wish to have 2 gift sets wrapped into 1, please contact/inquire beforehand to have that arranged.
I see some people get their earrings delivered in a pink box, how can I get that one?
The pink box you see is if you order 2 pairs or more earrings up to about 4 pairs in that box. So if you order 2 or more you will receive the pink box (as long as we have them in stock).
If we have discussed another packaging option because you don't need or want that box that may be arranged prior.
What is the Status Avenue return/exchange policy?
*For hygienic reasons, the following items cannot be exchanged or returned, will be FINAL SALE:
Any items related to pandemic (such as masks, alcohol wipes, etc...)
ALL "on sale," clearance, or freshly made/made to order, custom items are FINAL SALE and cannot be exchanged or returned.
Returning and/or not accepting your order without written approval in email from Status Avenue™, will be denied and a fee of $15.00USD will be charged plus any other fees associated with the shipping costs. Our items take time, dedication to create, alongside selecting some cool pieces to offer, so please respect the art and the nature of our small business. Thank you.
Do you have a physical store? Do you sell anywhere else?
No physical storefront at this time, STATUSAVENUE.com is the official online store. We occasionally do pop up vendor events, but we are mostly online based.
Do you sell clip-on earrings?
Unfortunately, not at this time.
What does "Freshly Made" mean for earrings?
Our Freshly Made Earwear aka earrings are made "Fresh," meaning many times they are made to order.
For online orders- when a customer purchases and the order is verified/finalized, we then start producing, hand-painting, and hand-detailing our earrings.
I saw an earring style a while ago, but don't see it online anymore. Where is it?
From time to time we do create special limited edition pieces that are only available for a short period of time. Once they sell out, they may never come back. So, we encourage you to get 'em while they're here.
Also, you can try your luck by emailing us (use contact page) with your inquiry regarding the earring style you are looking for.
There are some slight variances with hand-painted/hand-detailed earrings...
Due to the handmade, hand-painted, and hand-detailed nature, there may be slight imperfections/variances in hand-detailing. We strive to do our best with each creation we produce. At times, we need to free hand draw in some parts of the earrings and we try to be precise and perfect as much as we can. Thank you for understanding and appreciating our wearable art!
