Duplicate Title Tags from Nonexisting Collections?

Hi Everyone, my Google Search Console account is a bit of a mess right now.

Last month I created a new collection on shopify (Mariana-Earrings) and added some items in, then decided to delete it and just stick with what I've been doing (Mariana-Jewelry).

Well now Google sees the product sees a url path for many of my earrings through BOTH collections, even though the Mariana-Earrings collection no longer exists!

For Example:

Title Tag: Mariana Earrings, Grey | E-1430 215 SP - Enreverie

Urls:

<!--StartFragment-->http://enreverie.com/collections/mariana-earrings/products/mar-e-1430-215-sp-mariana-earrings

http://enreverie.com/collections/mariana-jewelry/products/mar-e-1430-215-sp-mariana-earrings<!--EndF...-->

Apparently both links are still valid too, even though the Mariana-Earrings collection no longer exists!

How can I get this collection to truly delete in Shopify? Do I need a Shopify developer to hop in and delete it in the backend?

Thanks for any help.

Kyle

Both your examples now 301 redirect to the canonical product page, which is a good thing for them to do. That report often takes weeks to update, when it does the issues should go away.
