COMMON QUESTIONS


Q: How long will it take to get my order?

 

A: We keep most of the Aspen Leaf Jewelry in stock. Otherwise it usually takes about 4-6 weeks. Near the December holidays we can be very busy so order well ahead if you need an item at the end of the year.


Q: I have scratched my belt buckle. Can you remove the scratches?

 

A: Don't worry about scratches. Over time your belt buckle will be covered in fine scratches and develop a beautiful satin patina.  These are all the marks of your life.


Q: My belt buckle is too shiny and flashy. Is there a way to tone it down?

 

A: Burnish with a common plastic kitchen green scrubby (a side-to-side motion works best)


Q: My silver buckle was not worn for quite awhile and it has turned black. How should I polish it?

 

A: For smooth silver buckles: A jewelers polishing cloth is preferable, so as not to remove the black line around the applique. Rub vigorously. Do not worry about polishing the back.

   For bronze, brass, rough or wire-brushed buckles: Burnish with a common plastic kitchen scrubby.


Q: My belt is too thick. It will not pass the second time through the loop.

 

A: See our 'About Belts' page.


Q: My item broke. Can you fix it?

 

A: All our items are covered by our unconditional lifetime guarantee (except for Money Clips; one replacement for free)


Q: I have some old Hayes pieces that I no longer use. What should I do with them?

 

A: Ebay always has people waiting for Hayes items but you will not get top dollar. The best value is to donate your item to the Jim Hayes collection at the Aspen Historical Society. You can take a tax deduction for the value. Contact Lisa Hancock at (970)925-3721
