Package says delivered but not received

Looking for your package?  Sometimes USPS prematurely marks packages as "delivered" before they have completed transit.  Usually packages appear within 1-2 days later.  If it still has not arrived, please check that your package was not accidentally delivered to a neighbor, placed at the back door, or with a doorman.

If you still have not received your package within 3 days, please email us at mhq@shopmachete.com for assistance.

Jewelry Materials

Italian Acetate- Our "Tortoise" earrings are handmade from eco-friendly acetate. Our acetate is high quality and non-petroleum based. Cellulose acetate is a natural and renewable material, providing an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum based material. The name "Tortoise" in our earrings is only to describe the material pattern. We do not use actual tortoise shells or other animal parts to produce our jewelry.

Shipping Materials

We are evolving our shipping materials to be as eco-friendly as possible. While we have not perfected it, we have new packaging in the works and are striving to create all biodegradable shipping materials.

All jewelry is shipped in Machete zip bags made from EVA film to protect your jewelry from being damaged or scratched during order fulfillment and shipping.  EVA film is a biodegradable green material that does not harm the environment. The clear zip bags provides a soft, protective layer while storing your jewelry. Best of all it's clear so you may easily locate your stored Machete piece!

Care Instructions

Clean all items with a soft cloth, like the one you would use on a pair of eyeglasses. Any jewelry that comes in contact with makeup or a lot of moisturizer should be wiped down daily.
