Shipping & Returns


If you are, for any reason, unhappy with any item that you have purchased from Colleen Mauer Designs, you may return or exchange it to us within 14 days of receipt for a full credit or a new piece. The piece must remain in the original packaging and show no signs of wear.

After all, we want you to be absolutely in LOVE with your new CMD jewelry. We do only accept returns and exchanges for purchases from our online store or when purchased directly from CMD at our Valencia Street Studio.  Products purchased through other CMD retailers must be returned/exchanged to the retailer and are subject to the retailer’s individual store policy. Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns or exchanges on any sale items, special orders or international orders.  Items must be unworn and with their original packaging and in perfect condition when returned or exchanged. Items must be shipped via USPS or UPS and insured for their full value. Shipping charges are not credited and return shipping will be paid by the customer.

To return or exchange an item, please send a note on our contact form or call +1(415) 637.7762 to request a return authorization number, otherwise known as an RA number.  Items will not be accepted for return or exchange without an RA number. Inside your return, please include your name, address, phone number, email and RA number. Please mail returns/exchanges to:
