Why do you only have a P.O. Box address?
Soraya operates from her home studio. Despite not working with physical inventory, Soraya Veldhuizen has decided to keep her address private for security reasons.
If you would like to view or try on a piece of jewelry in person, or discuss the possibilities of a custom piece, you can schedule an appointment with Soraya. Please fill out the contact form for a call-back request, and it would be helpful if you could provide a brief explanation in advance.
Are the jewelry pieces made of real gold?

Please note: The golden hoops, however, are hollow.
Can I receive my jewelry the next day?
Generally, no. Soraya Veldhuizen does not work with pre-made stock. Once you place and pay for your order, your jewelry is handcrafted with care by Soraya. The average processing time is therefore 2-4 weeks. Soraya makes every effort to dispatch your order to you as quickly as possible 🙂
Why are Soraya Veldhuizen's jewelry pieces relatively expensive?
