How to purchase AVR
Monthly Collections: Every month AVR releases a large collection of new pieces. This collection becomes available for purchase at a specific date and time which is announced via Instagram and Facebook with ample time for followers to be ready. Collections tend to sell out within 10-20 minutes. It is best to be on the website a few minutes prior to the collection release time. (Pre-orders are not accepted. Reserves can only be made 24 hours after collection release. For more information on reserves please read below)
Silent Listings: Designs that are in high demand will be "silently" listed on the website with absolutely no warning on social media. There will be no warning as to what it will be or when it will be listed. AVR will list a design for purchase on the website and who ever is on the site at that random time will have the opportunity to purchase the design for themselves without having the "collection release rush". This gives an additional chance to those who may not have had luck in previous collections. (Reserves or Pre-orders are not accepted.)
Surprise Listings: Surprise listings are similar to "silent listings" in that they are completely random, however AVR will announce them on social media at the exact moment they are available. If you follow AVR on Facebook or Instagram a post will be made when a surprise design is available for purchase at that exact moment. There will be no warning to when these surprise listings will happen or what designs will be available until the surprise post has been made. (Pre-orders are not accepted. Reserves can only be made 24 hours after listing release. For more information on reserves please read below)
Custom Orders: Custom orders are not accepted. Inquires are consistent despite not being accepted and to keep it fair for everyone AVR does not make exceptions on this policy.
Reserving: As stated above reserves are not accepted until 24 hours after a collection/piece release. If a piece is still available 24 hours after the collection release a reserve may be made on that piece for no more than 14 days. Full payment must be made within the reserved time frame. Should a payment not be made during the reserved time frame the reserve will be lifted and the piece made available for others to purchase.
Hidden Ring Bath Bombs
AVR Hidden Ring Bath Bombs are handmade with high quality all natural ingredients including: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Epsom Salt, Organic Coconut oil, Water, Fragrance/Essential Oil blend, all natural colorants from plant powders or clays, FDA approved cosmetic shimmer powder.
Inside every bath bomb hides one handmade sterling silver AVR ring which ranges in price from $10-$100+. AVR will showcase the ring designs that are hidden in each collection on social media first. There is no knowing which ring you will find until you have used your bath bomb and the plastic container floats to the surface of your bath revealing your hidden ring!
Due to the limited amount of designs per size please take into consideration that if you purchase more than one size you may find the same design more than once. This cannot be controlled as there is no way of knowing which ring design is in which bath bomb until they are used. It is luck of the draw!
During check out you are able to select your ring size. Bath Bombs are available in ring sizes 5-5.5, 6-6.5, 7-7.5, 8-8.5, 9-9.5, and 10-10.5. As stated before, there is no way of knowing which ring is in which bath bomb until they are used. Due to this, AVR is unable to hand pick a size closer to a .5 size or closer to a full size. They will all be labeled "5, 6, 7, 8, N (for size 9 as to not confuse with size 6) or 10" for organizational purposes but the rings inside can range from a full size to a half size. Please take this into account when ordering your size! AVR is not responsible for a ring not fitting perfectly, as these size options were created to make it easier for many to order.
AVR Hidden Ring Bath Bombs are highly sought after as they are released in small batches every other month due to the amount of time each collection takes to make. Please be prepared on launch day as they have sold out in less than a minute in previous collections. (Due to high demand, no pre-orders or reserves are accepted. First come first serve only.)
Due to the natural oils used to moisturize the skin a slippery surface may be left on the tub if not cleaned properly after the water has drained. To avoid this be sure to rinse and wipe down the tub after you have drained your bath water.
Allergen information: contains coconut oil
US and Canada shipping only:
Due to the fragility of the bath bombs and high priority shipping costs being more expensive than the cost of the bath bomb themselves AVR will only ship within the US and Canada only. If a purchase is placed and the shipping address is neither within the US or Canada a full refund will be issued and the bath bomb re-listed to be sold.
Pricing: AVR creates a Hidden Ring Bath Bomb collection every other month. Since each collection varies in ring designs, shapes, sizes, colors and ingredients the pricing of each collection is subject to change. The price will be announced along with the ring designs on the AVR Instagram page prior to launch date.

Damaged jewelry and discoloring of stones or patinaAll AVR jewelry is built by hand with love and should be treated as such. Pieces are fragile and require delicate care. If a piece is dropped and damaged, submerged in water or damaged at fault of the owner a repair or replacement will not be made without charge. Please refer to Jewelry Care and learn how to properly care for your AVR jewelry.
Repairs and resizingRepairs and resizing are not available on non-AVR jewelry. Resizing can only be done on specific AVR pieces and will be noted in the product description if available. If you inquire about a repair please note there will be a cost depending on the amount of damage done. All shipping is buyer's responsibility.
Please refer to my ring size guides and charts here.
Silversmithing is a tedious, dangerous and expensive craft. Working with metals, gas torches and chemicals creates toxic fumes that are extremely dangerous if inhaled. Please be sure to do extensive research via youtube videos, books and online searches about the process before diving in. You will need a well ventilated area as well as protective eye and proper respiratory wear that needs to be worn during the process. If you are looking to teach yourself be prepared to invest about $1k in tools and supplies and learn by trial and error for about a year before you start to hone in on your skills. Please do not contact about how to get started. AVR was started after years of research, persistence, trial and error, and practice which cannot be condensed into a few quick paragraphs. There are many videos of the process online that can be viewed with a quick search or local classes that you can sign up for. This will give you a sneak peak at how long of a process is required to do simple pieces and how many skills are required to pursue the art form. Good luck with your journey!
