COVID-19 Updates

Duke & Duchess Jewelers

COVID-19 Response

While our customers continue to react to the pandemic caused by COVID-19, our focus remains twofold:  (1) Continuing to operate our company to ensure our jewelry remains available for purchase and shipment and (2) taking all necessary preventative measures to allow our customers to continue to confidently purchase our stunning sterling silver and tungsten jewelry, and perhaps, feel a sense of normalcy during these scary and frustrating times.


Put more simply, our goal is to allow our customers to, to feel rest asuured while purchasing our jewelry.  To that end, we have taken numerous precautions to achieve this goal.  Operationally, our orders are fulfilled through warehouses where the employees are strictly adhering to established CDC guidelines concerning COVID-19.  Moreover, each piece of jewelry sold is placed inside a plastic poly bag to prevent tarnishing of the product, which is in turn placed in a velvet bag to be placed in a box for shipment.


We are focused on keeping our products and customers safe. Should you have any questions or concerns about our COVID-19 plans, or anything else for that matter, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Stay healthy and safe as we all look forward to a return to better times.



Best Regards,


Duke & Duchess Jewelers Family
