For online orders, engraved orders will be dispatched within 2-3 business days. Please account for additional time when placing your order.

During busy periods this timeframe may increase.

All messages are engraved using our signature font, Acumin Pro. You are free to choose up to 10 characters for inside engraving, and up to 2 for face engravings.

The font is fine line, but we are open to reasonable request. Please contact our team on support@merchantsofthesun.com. au for any special request.

For inscriptions on the inside of a piece, there is room for up to 8 characters including spaces. For messages on the face of a signet or pendant, there is room for maximum 2 characters (such as initials). All latin characters are available, including punctuation symbols.

We love inside jokes and funny business, but the Merchants team retains discretion to reject engraving requests that contain excessively offensive, inappropriate or discriminatory content. If you’re not sure about the suitability of a particular message, we’re more than happy to assist.

Due to the personalised nature of engraved pieces, we don’t accept returns or exchanges for change of mind. These items are still recyclable, and you can still send them back as part of the Close The Loop program. To avoid delays or issues, please triple check your engraving request before placing an order.

We can’t guarantee that changes can be made after an order is placed. Reach out to our team ASAP if you notice a mistake, and be sure to carefully review the engraving request before finalising your order.

Our rings are exclusively crafted using the Lost Wax Casting Process, this method seamlessly integrates our signature branding and hallmarks into each design, enhanced by the inclusion of our signature oxidisation.

For personalised engravings, rest assured that our engraving machine meticulously carves them on the inside of the rings, between the branding and hallmarks.

If you have any questions about our crafting processes or personalisation options, feel free to reach out to our knowledgeable team for assistance.

Lifelong styles require lifelong care. That’s why we’ve sent you a complimentary polishing cloth, specifically designed for your pieces. Every so often, you’ll need to give your jewellery a good clean and buff to prevent tarnishing and dullness.

It’s natural for 925 sterling silver and 18k gold vermeil to show signs of discolouration over time. Use your cloth and a little elbow grease to easily restore shine.

No, all of our rings are handcrafted from 925 solid sterling silver and 18k gold vermeil.

Your fingers will only turn that dreaded green shade when in contact with low-quality plating, brass or nickel based jewellery.
