FAQ: The Scoop
How to order from tribe.
You turn weed into gold? Yes! And Silver and Platinum. We transform live cannabis plants into stunning jewelry pieces by casting them in precious metals. Since cannabis was legalized in Canada, we have perfected our techniques to preserve every detail of the leaves, roots, seeds, buds and stems. Our casts become amazing high jewelry pieces that showcase the beauty of the plant.
How do I order? We realize these days a lot of people haven’t had a custom product made. But that’s the point and why custom products are rare and valuable! Here’s how the process works:
- Send us an email and we’ll start communicating about the project design. Between you, us and the plant, we will come up with the perfect design, just for you. This is what custom work is all about.
- We talk about your budget
- We’ll make preliminary rough drawings and talk materials used in construction (metals, gems etc)
- We narrow down timelines to completion of the project
- You pay, and the work commences.
- We keep you updated on the project with photography of the various stages of the manufacturing process.
- We can send you a mini video of the product’s production (optional)
- We ship the finished product to you.
How long does all that take? This depends on design complexity and the components we need to make to complete a design. Usually, we can ship in 3 to 4 weeks from your order date. Complex designs can take longer. But we will communicate timing as the product gets made and send photographs so you can see progress.
But what if I want privacy? We hear you. Totally. We are comfortable signing NDAs if you need that.
Where do you make your products? We design our products on paper and make wax and resin models and take live plant casts by hand in a design studio in the beautiful Thousand Islands area of Ontario, Canada. Our precious metal casting work happens in downtown Toronto. We sell our products exclusively through this website.
Do you ship internationally? Yes! We ship worldwide using reliable and secure courier services. Shipping costs vary depending on your location and the weight of your order. We will provide you with a tracking number once your order is shipped.
How do you ensure the quality and authenticity of your products? We do not mass produce anything. Tribe is recognized as a precious metals dealer under Canada’s Precious Metal Marking Act and we have been authorized by the Government of Canada to apply Canada’s National Precious Metals Mark to our jewelry pieces. This is the highest mark of quality for precious metals products in Canada. It’s a rare honor to be able to apply it to our products.
Can I choose the metal and gemstones for my jewelry? Yes! This is the beauty of custom, bespoke jewelry. We can start with a simple idea like: “Can you make wedding bands out of cannabis leaves cast in gold?” and together, we’ll make it happen. You can choose from different metals (gold, silver, platinum), different finishes (polished, matte, textured), different gemstones (Canadian diamonds, rubies, emeralds, etc.), and different styles (rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, etc.). The possibilities are endless, but we’ll help you narrow them down for your perfect piece.
How much does all this cost? With custom, bespoke jewelry, the cost of a piece depends on several factors, such as the precious metals, the gems (if any), the design complexity, and the labor involved. Generally speaking, our prices start at $500 and go up from there. But don’t worry, we will consult with you on your design needs and the components of your piece, and we will give you an accurate quote before we start. We will make sure you get a fair price and a stunning cannabis jewelry piece that you will love.
