Toad's Lily Pond Jewelry Company Policies


Hi there! I’m Chandreyee of Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry and this small business has been my passion since I started it. Jewelry has been my passion long before that. When I make my designs, I do so hoping that the person who buys it will see it the same way that I do. I have truly learned to value something that is handmade because there was thought, anticipation, feeling and a part of self that was put into that item. Even if there is more than one, there will never be the amount that a department store sales because the maker is not a machine. That in itself makes the item valuable and that is what I hope my customers will find amazing about my store, my jewelry, and my story. Moreover, my biggest hope is that my customers will cherish the items they buy from me. Each item I make has a story behind it; from each individual piece to the fully made piece of jewelry. I hope that you will further that story and give it a ‘life’ of its own.

Refund Policy

In general, Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry does not process refunds or exchanges; however, each situation is subject to individual handling *. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact us within 48 hours of package arrival**. After this point, buyer assumes all responsibility.

* To ensure the safety of all customers, earrings are not returnable at any time. Because of the nature of earrings, it would be unsafe and unsanitary for Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry to resell or “part out” pieces from earrings which have left our shop.  Thank you for understanding.

** Package arrival indicates day of arrival via USPS tracking. If a package arrives at 9:48 AM on Tuesday, the buyer has until Thursday evening at 11:59 PM (MST) to contact TLPJ.



All jewelry is shipped via USPS first class mail with confirmation delivery. If USPS shows that a package has been delivered, the purchase is considered complete and processed. In the rare instance that USPS has lost a package, after 15 days (United States, 30 days International), Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry will contact the post office to attempt to locate it.  If USPS is unable to locate the package after 48 hours, Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry will re-ship the item or offer a refund in the event that the jewelry item is no longer available.

 Shipping cost cannot be refunded after an item has shipped as the package has already been paid for and funds cannot be retrieved. Thank you for understanding.

In the rare event that your item is damaged in transportation, a partial refund, credit, or exchange may be issued, as determined by Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry.


Damaged  Item Requirements:

The buyer is required to send photographs of all packaging and  jewelry item(s). It may be further requested that the buyer additionally send the item back if further investigation is needed. This will be at buyer’s expense and can be refunded in the event that it is determined to be postal service error. To protect both parties, it is required that the buyer returns the package with tracking information and provides such tracking info to Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry staff to ensure delivery.



Should you be missing an item from your order or in the extremely rare event that the wrong item was shipped, one of two options are available:

1)     Shipment of the missing item(s) will be processed same day.

  1. PROOF of missing items is required. Damaged item requirements apply. Please see above.

2)     A partial refund for your purchase may be issued (as determined by TLPJ) and no further action will be taken. “No further action” also constitutes no negative feedback from Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry or buyer.

Earrings are non-returnable due the sensitive sanitary nature of an earring. However, if you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact us. We will be happy to offer a reasonable solution.



Toad’s Lily Pond Jewelry will not issue a refund on any items wishing to be returned based on buyer’s remorse once shipped. Because we believe that jewelry should be free of wear and unnecessary handling and would not sell our customers something worn or overly handled, we cannot accept items back for selling purposes once they have left our facilities. Thank you for understanding and helping to maintain the integrity of our items.  



Any proposed solution offered to our customers is valid for 30 DAYS from the date of original item delivery. After 30 days, if buyer has not selected an item to replace/exchange/credit, all offers are considered null and void and no further action will be taken on the part of the buyer or TLPJ.

 Policies and pricing are subject to change at any time without prior notification.
