Orders are shipped from our warehouse located in New Jersey and arrive within 2–7 business days, depending on which shipping method was selected.

Once shipped, you will receive a confirmation email including your tracking number.

The founders of OboraLux love to travel off the beaten path. It’s through their travels that the greatest relationships have been made. At OboraLux, we purchase the majority of our creations directly from the artisan, making sure that we pay fair prices and build relationships to make sure that we are making a positive impact. We also source through partner organizations and nonprofits that align with our mission and sourcing ethics.
The horn we use comes from Ugandan Ankole cows, which are used as a food source by the local community and villages. The horn is a byproduct of the agricultural system and is sold to artisans and others in the community who use it to create jewelry and various items. The animals are not harmed in order to obtain their horn, not even secondarily - it is a discarded item, albeit one of value to some. The horn is considered a sustainable product in the sense that livestock farming in a pasture-based system is a sustainable practice.
Given the handmade nature of our pieces, please reference each individual creation page for care instructions.
With each purchase, we provide an information card with details about the origin, artisan and creation information, so that you can trace the item right back to its maker. We are also conscious of our environmental impact. When possible we use packaging that is recyclable, biodegradable and/or made from post-consumer recycled material.
Due to the unique nature of our handmade creations, imperfections and natural variations are commonplace. There is a small chance you receive a piece slightly different than you expect or see in the sample pictures (bead size, color, length, etc.). We hold our handmade creations in the most high esteem and we hope that you enjoy these variations as much as we do.
All of our creations are handcrafted, and variations in color, pattern, and size should be expected. We are very careful when packaging your purchases, but sometimes an item may be damaged during transit. If you receive a damaged creation, please email us immediately at email@example.com and be sure to include a photo of the damaged item so we can address the issue with our shipper. We will either replace the item, issue a refund or, in the case of a gift, issue a gift card. Given the limited quantities and one-of-a-kind items that we offer, we may not be able to replace the exact item.
We love posting new information about our artisan partners and the new creations they create. Follow us on social media via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. You can also subscribe to our E-Newsletter on the bottom of our homepage, or visit our blog to read interviews, new creations, and updates on our artisan partners.
Currently, OboraLux does not have a physical store location; we are an e-commerce shop only. However, a few times a year we hold pop-up events in the NYC area. Follow us on social media or subscribe to our E-Newsletter to keep updated about exciting in-person shopping opportunities!
For orders shipped to within the state of New Jersey, we collect sales tax. Taxes are automatically added at checkout. We don’t apply taxes to orders outside of New Jersey.
Fair trade is a social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainable farming. Fair Trade products can be either foods or crafts that are produced under standards designed to end and prevent the poverty, sweatshop labor conditions, environmental degradation, etc. that puts profits above people and the planet.
At OboraLux uphold the 10 Principles of Fair Trade endorsed by the World Fair Trade Organization in all of our partnerships with suppliers.
We abide by the basic fair trade principles to ensure that we support efforts that provide workers and artists with fair wages. It is only by receiving a fair wage that the heads of households can provide for the many needs of themselves and their family members including food, shelter, health care, and education.
