Frequently Asked Questions
Why buy from Heartful Diamonds?
For a brief history of our store and our mission, you can visit the About Us page here.
Here's some key differences between our products and the competition:
- Canvases quality checked by in-house experts - We frequently inspect: canvas material, diamonds quality, clearness of symbols, stickiness of glue and durability of tools.
- Faster shipping times - our average delivery time is just 2-3 weeks to most countries compared to the 4+ weeks of other stores. There are also express options and (USA) domestic shipping for some products. Due to the impact of COVID-19 these shipping times may be delayed by about a week.
- Diamonds double-check - We personally tick off each of the diamonds required to be in the list by hand - greatly reducing the odds of missing diamonds to 1 in a 1000.
- Always something new - We have an unbeatable range of gorgeous Full Drill designs that all come in square and round drills. You'll always discover something new in our store; a huge number of special 3D Diamond Paintings, unique Partial Drill designs, LED lights, key chains and more.
And here's how we look after our valued customers:
- Safe and secure payments through the online e-commerce industry's most trusted payment providers Paypal® and Stripe®.
- 24/7 Priority support via Email and Facebook Messenger.
- Friendly customer support who are passionate about the hobby and excellent customer service.

How long will it take my order to arrive?
Products take an average of 12-25 days to be delivered after it's been marked as shipped. All postal delays at the country of delivery are outside our control. There may be some postage delays at certain check-in points where you may see your tracking status become "stuck" - please be patient as the postal service may be facing severe backlogs. Delivery may take longer to arrive to some countries outside major delivery networks. If you have not received your item after 45 days, please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Products shipped from within the USA usually take 3-7 days for delivery.
Why was my Credit Card declined?
The most common reason for this happening is that your bank or financial institution has declined the transaction, since our merchant facilities are based in Australia. A quick call to your credit provider during business hours will get the problem sorted in a jiffy!
I need to change or cancel my order.
Please contact us within 12 hours of placing your order. Since we strive to fulfill orders as soon as possible, if we don't receive your message within 12 hours we may not be able to make any changes.
Which size canvas should I get?
Beginners may want to choose the smaller canvases (30cm/12" or smaller). While these will have less detail compared to the larger sizes, they are cheaper and you can experience the joy of your first completed canvas much sooner.
What exactly are the "diamonds"? What's the difference between "square" and "round"?
Diamonds are the myriad square or round rhinestones that come with every kit, waiting for you to paste them on the canvas! Square rhinestones fit more snugly together on the canvas, however will take a bit more precision and time to get just right. Round rhinestones are more forgiving but will leave tiny gaps. These gaps won't noticeable from a reasonable distance because they are so small and the canvas background normally compensates for the space. We do recommend beginners give the Round diamonds a try first.
What's the difference between "full" and "partial"?
A full drill canvas means the pasting area is the entirety of the surface - to complete the project you will need to cover the entire picture. Partial simply means that only the designated areas need to be covered to complete the picture. Which one you ought to choose comes down to preference.
HELP! I have some issues with my canvas/project!
If your canvas is creased you have several options:
- Flatten out the canvas on an even workspace or the floor of your home and stack heavy books on all the corners/edges. Leave overnight.
- If you have a finished project, use a rolling pin and roll over the picture for about 60 seconds, or until satisfied with the evenness.
- Otherwise if your canvas is irredeemably creased or wet due to rough handling by the courier, please contact us for a free replacement.
If your canvas has lost stickiness for whatever reason, please try:
- You can purchase mod podge from your local store or Arts & Crafts specialist. Simply apply to your finished project to ensure the diamonds stay in place.
- If the lost stickiness is due to foreign objects touching the adhesive (e.g. paper) - you can try submerging the affected area in hot or boiling water. The adhesive is waterproof but the object should dissolve.
If you've knocked or spilled all the diamond drills on the floor and it's impossible to sort them out...
- Don't panic! Take a picture of the scene of the crime and send us a message via the chat widget or email to email@example.com. Once approved, we'll send you free replacements.
Can my kids do this activity?
The full drill projects are typically an adult activity. There are many small parts (the "diamond" rhinestones) that will be a choking hazard to toddlers. We do have a great selection of products that are appropriate for small children ages 4 to 7.

How long does it take to complete a canvas?
This will depend on the size of the canvas you choose as well as the speed at which you can apply the diamonds to the painting. Generally since Round shaped diamonds are easier to paste, you will complete a Round Diamond Painting quicker compared to a Square one. A small 30x30cm (12"x12") canvas may take up to 15 hours if it's your first time.
How do I get a refund?
Sometimes (very rarely) we make mistakes, or the activity/picture doesn't turn out to be what you expected, and it might be that the only resolution is a refund. Whatever your reason for not being fully satisfied, you're covered by our 365-Day Risk-free Purchase Guarantee Policy.
Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do everything we can to ensure your concerns are answered and the refund process is as smooth as possible. Further details of the Refund Policy can be found here.
How are the canvases packed? Does it come with a frame?
This changes depending on which one you ordered, but the canvas will either be packed in a padded mailbag or a padded rectangular box. Standard kits have 2 layers of protection; the canvas itself is wrapped around a foam tube to prevent creasing, and the entire package is twice wrapped in bubble wrap. You will have to source a frame separately.
I ordered multiple items and only received one?
We have multiple suppliers for Special products who may have different processing times. As a result, sometimes your orders may arrive at different times, but there is no need for worry; any remaining items will usually arrive within days of each other.
If you have any concerns shoot us an email to email@example.com.
