Shipping & Returns

Delivery Time Frames and Back Orders
Most orders are mailed next business day and take 2-to-3 business days to arrive.  We usually always have some new or re-stock items on their way to Métaphore, and so this might incur a bit of an extra wait.  We can discuss time frames in detail, so contact us if you need this info.

Free Personal Delivery to New Haven Local Addresses We can deliver orders to your home or office in New Haven, Hamden, Woodbridge & and the Shoreline going east from New Haven to Madison. There is no charge for this service!  See Check Out for your option.

Shipping charges We ship via U.S. Postal Service or FedEx.  NOTE FOR JEWELRY ORDERS If U.S. Post Office shipping is more than $1.00 LESS than the automatic shipping charge, we will refund the difference to you!

Up to $99.99 = $6.00

$100 to $199.99 = $9.00

$200 + = $12.00

Connecticut sales tax is collected for items sent or delivered to CT addresses.  Currently there is no sales tax charged for other states.

Canada – So sorry, we don’t ship to you folks because of shipping costs and customs!

To make the process easy, save the package your order came in, and send it back to us using a shipper of your choice. Once we receive the return and verify its condition, we will process a refund using the same card you provided for the order. For Greater New Haven area customers, we can pick up returns at no charge (see Shipping and Delivery Information above).

Please be aware we reserve the right to refuse a return if we deem its condition to have been altered in any way.  In this case, we will correspond with you via email about the situation.

Please contact us to discuss any concerns regarding returns!
