 Our Return Policy

Customer satisfaction is our top priority. If for any reason, you're not satisfied with a purchase, we will gladly offer you an exchange or refund within 30 days for Tear Bottle Orders. Please send returns to the shipping address included with your order. Please be sure to pack your item carefully, in the original packing if possible. Gifts may be returned for a refund to the original purchaser only. Refunds will be made for the purchased amount of the product only. Shipping costs will not be credited or refunded.  
Due to the custom hand-made nature of the Thumbies, orders for print jewelry cannot be refunded.

We ship using U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail for Tear Bottle orders, and UPS for Thumbie Jewelry. Priority Mail orders are shipped to most US addresses in 2-4 days. Global delivery is also available, but may take longer. If you place an international order and the address doesn't fit into the form, please include the mailing address in the comments field and we will provide you a shipping quote. International FedEx charges are VERY high, $60 plus. If you need it that quickly, please ask us to confirm shipping costs before sending your order.

To enhance security when using credit cards on the Internet, we prefer to ship packages to the billing address of your credit card. We will ship to a different address (for gift delivery) as long as the credit card company can confirm your billing address. We also require that you sign for your package when it is delivered. These extra steps help us ensure that your credit and identity are protected on the Internet. We may delay your order if anything about it seems suspicious.

What Our Customers Say...

This was the best experience I ever had shopping online. I would recommend this site to anyone and intend to buy here again SOON.
Thanks, yours was one of the few items ordered on-line that made it in time for Christmas.
Amazing customer service! They exceeded my expectations and because of their quick response, I was able to have a gift in time for my friend visiting from out of state. Thanks again, Tearcatcher Gifts.
This is the second time I have ordered from Tear Catcher, and it won't be the last. They are extremely responsive, thoughtful and do whatever is necessary to make your buying experience a good one. Eric sent me an e-mail letting me know he had changed the shipping to one that was going to cost about the same but would get my merchandise to me in a more timely manner. Not many places would do that. I appreciate the time taken to read my e-mails, especially when I start rambling about the reason for my purchase. Again, I don't know of ANY merchant that would do it.
