Shipping & Orders
We currently ship anywhere within Europe.
We offer free standard shipping on all purchases to Sweden. We also offer free express shipping within the European Union, UK, Switzerland and Norway with DHL on orders over €150. The shipping cost for orders under €150 is €10.
Outside the European Union (except the UK and Norway), customers are obliged to pay €25 for the shipping cost.
In Sweden we use Postnord and for deliveries in Europe we use DHL Express.
In-stock orders: Products that are in stock will be delivered within 2-3 business days from purchase to Sweden and Europe.
Out-of-stock: If a product is out-of-stock, we'll provide you an estimated time for it to be shipped. If you’re on a tight deadline, we will do our best to rush your order – just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Made-to-order: Our Special Occasion Rings are made-to-order with a delivery time of 5-6 weeks. If you’re on a tight deadline, drop us a line at email@example.com and we will do our best to rush your order.
Mixed delivery time: If your order consists of a mix of in-stock, out-of-stock and/or made-to-order pieces, the delivery time may change. If the estimated delivery dates are more than 7 days apart, you will receive an email with the option of splitting the delivery of your order. In the event of no response, the entire delivery takes place together.
Please note that shipping to remote areas may be subject to longer delivery time.
Once your package leaves our warehouse you will receive an SMS or email notification that your parcel is on its way. Your parcel is normally delivered straight to your door. If the parcel cannot be delivered it will either be taken to a service point for pickup or a second delivery attempt will be made the day after.
In some countries you will be able to change delivery methods when the parcel is on its way. For instance could you choose to have your parcel delivered straight to a service point, to a neighbour, left in a safe place or select a different day of delivery.
Please note that parcels are often delivered during the day, if you are at work we therefore recommend to have the parcel shipped there if possible.
Once your order is shipped, we will send you the tracking number in an email (you can also find the info on your “My account” page). In case you have not received a tracking number, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We insure each parcel from the time it enters transit until it is delivered to you, or until you pick it up at your nearest postal service point.
If you allow the carrier to deliver your parcel without signature (e.g. outside your front door), AKIND will not take responsibility for the delivery.
We accept payments from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, PayPal, Klarna, ideal, as well as debit cards. We currently do not accept prepaid Visa, Mastercard, or American Express gift cards.

Akind guarantees a lifetime warranty of your Akind jewelry to be free of manufacturing defects. Manufacturing defects can include clasp breakage, loose diamonds or loose prongs.
Manufacturing defects do not include general wear and tear, scratching, stretched chains/rings, lost jewelry, or jewelry damaged due to improper cleaning or storage.
Because we stand behind our designs and our manufacturers, any third-party or outside jeweler altering your jewelry will void your warranty with us! Have a question about your piece or how to care for it? Please reach out to email@example.com.
We are proud to offer a lifetime warranty for all of our sustainably created diamonds. We guarantee our listed gradings of our created diamonds to be accurate and warrant their graded characteristics. In the unlikely case that your diamond turns out to not meet or exceed a characteristic promised, we will, at your option:
- Accept the return of the diamond and provide you with a refund of the full purchase price; or
- Replace the diamond with a diamond that meets or exceeds each of the characteristics warranted.
The condition of the diamond will be determined by examination by standard gemological techniques. The accuracy of angles and linear measurements will be determined by the following tolerances: ±0.2º and ±0.02 millimeters.
- For 1/4 ct: 0.25ct average diamond weight (0.23 -0.27ct diamond weight)
- For 1/2 ct: 0.50ct average diamond weight (0.47-0.53ct diamond weight)
If you decide to grade your diamond on your own, please note that diamonds must be graded as loose stones and cannot be set in engagement rings and then graded, as settings can be obtrusive. A well-trusted facility such as GCAL, IGI or GIA must grade the stone, and not a local jeweler in order for it to have relevancy.
Should you make a claim under this warranty, you allow us to inspect the diamond and any gemological evaluation on which you base your claim, and try and resolve your claim amicably.
To be able to claim this warranty, the diamonds must not be exposed to unreasonable force or harmful conditions. This warranty does not apply to product that has been stored or handled incorrectly, abused, altered, treated with the wrong cleaning methods. The warranty does not cover normal wear & tear, cuts or scratches; consequential or incidental damages. The warranties are to the benefit of the original purchaser of the product. They are not transferable.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. The warranty does not, in any way, affect the rights given to you by law.
Taxes & Duties
Within the EU, Norway, Switzerland and UK, orders are shipped on Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) basis, meaning that all taxes and duties are included in the final price.
Outside the EU (except Norway, Switzerland and UK), orders are shipped on a Delivery Duty Unpaid (DDU) basis, meaning that all taxes and duties are excluded in the final price. Your order may therefore be subject to local taxes and import duties by your local customs authority or the used shipping carrier. We are unable to calculate the exact amount in duties and taxes your order might incur, as these charges are imposed directly by the destination country and vary between countries. AKIND does not cover any such taxes, duties or related charges. Taxes and duties incurred on refused or unclaimed packages are not covered by AKIND.
Each order already comes with a personalized card so it’s ready for gifting! By providing the name of the person you wish to gift to at Checkout, we will add that person’s name on the card. If no gift note or special request is included, the name in the shipping address will be added to the name card.
Our packaging includes a square sleek box in one of our 4 brand colors, tissue and a pouch so that you can carry your Akind jewelry wherever you go.

We sell ring-sizers for you to use at home, however; the most accurate way to determine your ring size is by visiting a local jeweler. If the ring is a surprise, we recommend taking a favorite ring to a local jeweler to determine that size.
We’ve written a guide about ring-sizing, which you can check out here!
Care & Repair
Our jewelry is designed to last forever. That's why we feel confident in offering you a lifetime warranty of every piece you buy from us. However, even something as strong as gold and diamonds need a bit of your attention and care. We therefore recommend that you:
- always keep your jewelry securely stored to avoid spinning and scratches.
- avoid contact with perfumes, chlorine, lotions, hairspray, cosmetics, detergents and other chemicals as this may affect the color or luster.
- be careful when wearing your chains, try not to get stuck with them or pull them.
- remove your jewelry when bathing, exercising, doing housework etc. to avoid bending, scratching or losing it.
- avoid storing diamonds together, as they can scratch each other.
Solid 14k gold
To maintain the beautifully shiny texture, scrub lightly with a toothbrush and warm water, then dry it with a lint-free cloth or paper towel.
Keep your diamonds sparkling by soaking them it in a warm soapy liquid, brush gently with a toothbrush and then rinse the stone and setting to ensure there is no residue. Dry it with a lint-free cloth or paper towel.
White gold isn’t found in nature, so pure gold is often mixed with zinc, palladium, or nickel alloys to create white gold. White gold rings are also dipped in rhodium, giving them a brilliant, chrome-like color, while also protecting them from scratching. However, to maintain this white luster, white gold should be “re-dipped” every so often.
Keep in mind that you are given a lifetime warranty for your Akind jewelry. This means that if your jewelry breaks (and this is evidentially not caused by your carelessness – read more under “Warranty”), we will have it fixed. Just send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take care of it straightaway. Read more about our lifetime warranty.
To reach 14k gold, our gold is alloyed with copper and silver, making the breakdown the following - 58.5% pure gold, 6,2% silver, 28% copper, 4,8% zinc, 2,5 % iridium.
Yes! Just like mined diamonds, lab-grown diamonds are made up of one single element – carbon. It exhibits the same exceptional beauty and brilliance as a mined diamond because it is identical in composition. Our diamonds are traceable, transparently priced but without the human and environmental toll of mining.
Each Special Occasion ring is “Made-to-Order” and crafted by hand, taking 3-5 weeks to complete.
When ordering a Special Occasion ring from us, you have the option of engraving the ring with up to 20 characters. We're unable to change or cancel orders that include engraved items as they are custom made and non-refundable.
Special occasion rings with several diamonds around the band cannot be engraved.
Special Occasion rings are eligible for complimentary return within 60 days of receiving the ring with approval and a shipping label from our Customer Support. Each customer is permitted one return of a Special Occasion ring. Any other Special Occasion ring purchased through Akind will be a final sale once the first is returned. Rings that have been resized or modified by a third-party jeweler are not eligible for return.
Special Occasion rings can be resized one full size up or down, excluding infinity bands. Please initiate the resizing process by emailing email@example.com with your order number and the size you need, so our team can provide you with next steps. Each customer is permitted one resizing process of a Special Occasion ring. Any additional resizing process will be subject to a fee of €50.
Akind cannot accept rings for resize if purchased outside of Europe at this time. Please work with a local, trusted jeweler to resize your ring. Resizing your ring with a different jeweler in no way voids your warranty with Akind.
Akind guarantees our Special Occasion rings to be free of manufacturing defects. If you believe your ring has a defect, you are able to send it back to us anytime for inspection where we will repair or replace your ring as deemed appropriate. Manufacturing defects can include missing pave stones (stones under .07ct), and loose prongs. As each ring is made-to-order and crafted by hand, slight variations in each ring are to be expected, and are not viewed as a defect. If the damage is deemed outside of a manufacturing defect, we’ll always let you know the price of any repair before beginning any work on the ring.
This warranty does not apply to the replacement of a center stone, or any stone larger than 0.06ct. Manufacturing defects do not include general wear and tear, scratching, discoloration due to contact with harsh chemicals, warped rings or lost rings/center stones.
Because we stand behind all our designs and our manufacturers, any third-party or outside jeweler altering your jewelry will void your warranty with us!
To be eligible for the warranty:
Please be sure the ring and diamond was not exposed to unreasonable force or harmful conditions. The ring needs to have been stored and handled correctly. Any abused, altered or incorrectly cleaned ring is not eligible for return. Ring needs to be in the possession of the original purchaser, as this warranty is not transferable.
