DEFECTIVE OR DAMAGED 

All our products are handmade. We take great pride in their quality and great care in ensuring that all merchandise is thoroughly inspected for defects or damages before shipping. Each item undergoes a quality control check to ensure it meets our high standards. It is the buyer's responsibility to check the product upon arrival to make sure it is free of any defects and meets their expectations.

Should you find any item to be defective or damaged, or the item delivered is not the item that was ordered, a return request must be submitted within 14 business days of receiving the goods.  

If 14 days have passed since the delivery date of your purchase, we won't be able to accept your return request. Returns that do not comply with our policy will not be accepted. Please ensure to read it thoroughly before submitting your return.

Damaged goods due to client negligence or items with their tags detached or missing will not be eligible to return the item. 

What is considered a defective product?

These include, but are not limited to: 

  • Jewelry – gemstones are a naturally occurring product. This also means there will always be some degree of color shift (particularly under different lighting) and variation in shape and texture. This is not faulty. This is what makes gemstone Jewelry so unique – no two pieces are identical.
  • Glitter fallout on any apparel will not be treated as defective or damaged. This is expected.
  • Lighting photography may also affect the true color of some dresses/clothing, or texture due to fabric dye lots and the handmade nature of the garments, this is also not considered defective.
  • Manual Imperfections - When dealing with handmade products, while it is very rare, small imperfections such as loose threads, slight misalignments, missing, broken, or skipped stitches, open seams, or incorrect stitches per inch are often considered part of the handmade charm and character. As long as these imperfections do not affect the usability or overall appearance of the item they typically do not qualify as defects warranting a full refund.
  • Size variations within a reasonable tolerance typical of apparel manufacturing. We recommend checking our size chart for each dress and we encourage you to reach out to our customer service team if you have any questions or concerns for any sizing questions before purchasing.  Please email us at info@marablak.com or contact us. We are here to help!
