Rico Designs cannot guarantee that the colours represented or shown on the website exactly matches the actual product. Size of gemstones will change or may appear bigger or smaller online.

Most items are handmade, therefore they may come with minor flaws or variations in natural materials. Each piece is made in the moment, so yours will not be exactly the same as the picture.  All attempts will be made to keep the same concept of the piece i.e. types of stones used and main feature beads of the particular style but at times beads may be out of stock and another piece will be used instead. Designs may also look different to images on site as different sizes will result in pieces being added or removed from the end product. The finished appearance will be slightly different with every piece made, making each piece more special and uniquely “yours”.

Each piece of Rico Designs is threaded and knotted at the hand of Richelle to adorn the wearer.

Please take this into consideration prior to purchasing.
