When will it ship? -- Most orders for stock items ship in 1 to 4 business days; larger orders and complex orders can take a bit longer. MTO (Make To Order) items can take up to 10 business days to ship. Normally we're a bit faster but that's why we classify them as MTO because sometimes production does take longer. MTO literally means we don't make the rings until we have an order for them.
Urban Maille is a factory, not a warehouse. We currently list over 10,000 unique rings, every possible permutation of shape, gauge, metal and mandrel. Because we're a little factory, we produce different items on different days. The production setup for making 12g/7.0mm sterling rings is quite different than making 26g/1.125mm gold filled rings. And some metal are run at different production times to avoid mixing with other metals.
Most of the fills as well as the more exotic sterlings and all of the shapes (squares, diamonds, half rounds, etc.) are classified as MTO. In general, you can expect most MTOs to take at least 5 days. If you would like your stock items shipped more quickly than the MTO items, place two separate orders. A second shipping charge is all that's required to split the MTOs from an existing order.
You're always welcome to write to us before placing an MTO order to get an estimate of when the order will ship. If you have a deadline to meet, we'll do what we can to prioritize your order and get it out to you faster.
