Shipping out, picking up & sending back. Everything you need to know. And probably more.


Processing, shipping & DHL

All in-stock orders are packaged and shipped within 5 business days. If your piece is custom or personalized, however, we’ll most often need between 5 and 15 business days to make it before it’s ready to ship. There are a few exceptions, however. For example, the color of gold you choose may affect delivery times, so be sure to double check the shipping time for your piece. You’ll find it listed directly below the color selector on the product page.

When it comes to DHL, their delivery time depends on which rate you select at the checkout page and is then added on to the shipping time we’ve indicated. For example: if our website says 5 business days, and you select the 2-4 day option from DHL—expect your delivery to arrive within 7 to 9 days. Make sense?

Rush orders

If you don’t see an option to rush your delivery, that doesn’t mean we can’t try to figure something out. Email us at and let’s see if we can speed things up for you. 

Keep in mind that your chosen shipping method won’t affect how long it takes to make your piece—the actual production time is set in stone. (That pun was intended.)


Tracking en route

Now for the fun part. Once we’ve filled your order, you’ll get an email from us with a link. Use it to track and follow your jewelry through the wonderful world of mail.

Curbside Pickup

We’re happy to offer curbside pickup at our head office in Toronto. If your order is available for curbside pickup, you’ll have the option to select it on the product page. Just tick the box and someone from customer service will be in touch to arrange a time for you to swing by.

Once a return is initiated and the label is created, the package must be scanned by our delivery partner within 7 days. 

All refunds will be applied to the form of payment used on the original order. Rush order processing, expedited shipping and same day delivery fees are not eligible for refund. 

When shipping your item for return, it must be sent back in unworn and sellable condition and shipped in its original Van Der Hout Jewelry box.

No returns will be accepted without following the proper return request on our Return Portal as we will not be able to identify your order or refund you.

*Items that are not eligible for return include, but are not limited to, all personalized items, including any product in our initial collection, name necklaces, and engraved items, are final sale. Any modification to personalized and made-to-order items, such as adjusting the length of a chain, is not included in the product cost and will require an additional fee to do so.
