LAY-AWAY:

I accept Lay-away on any purchase over $125.Contact me to set up a plan and set a up a deposit.

RESERVES: Reserves are great! I use them often and reserve often.

Reserve ARE strictly for certainty of purchase. A reserve is an agreement to follow through with a purchase.
Reserves ARE NOT to hold items away from other buyers while you decide if you would like to purchase.
Reserves ARE short term holds,normally 24-48 hours (sometimes longer,depending on the buyer), that allow the buyer to arrange payment.
Reserves ARE NOT long term holds, Lay-aways are.
Reserves ARE a great way to secure a purchase for a couple of days.
Buyers that abuse reserves, or any policy, will not be allowed to repurchase from this shop again.

OFFERS:

I accept offers on most items. Any offer within reason will be entertained. There are some items cannot be reduced and the likelihood of a reduction depends greatly on the item and how long its been listed. Coupon codes and other discounts cannot be used in addition to any offer based reduction.

I reserve the right to refuse service to buyers that have abused my policies or terms and/or cancel any order that breaches my policies or terms of service. I pride myself on being a reliable, honest seller and only ask that my buyers honor my policies and terms in return.

We all have something we enjoy so much that we would happily do for free.This is it for me.I would be being dishonest if I said Im not here to make any profit but my love would certainly continue in the absence of Etsy!

What are the different jewelry periods?
Periods of Vintage and Estate Jewelry Jewelry which is termed ‘vintage’ includes many decades or eras. Each era has many different designs. These eras include Georgian, Early Victorian, Mid-Victorian, Late Victorian, Arts and Crafts era, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco and Retro.

Georgian Jewelry (1714-1837)

Georgian era jewelry is handmade, making the quality of each piece variable. Needless to say, Georgian jewelry is very rare. Often featuring nature-inspired designs such as leaves and birds, Georgian jewelry frequently includes precious stones.

Early Victorian, Romantic Jewelry (1837-1850)

Like jewelry of the Georgian era, early Victorian era jewelry features nature-inspired designs. Frequently, these designs would be delicately and intricately etched into gold. Lockets and brooches were popular everyday jewelry during the early Victorian era whereas colored gemstones and diamonds were worn during the evening.

Mid-Victorian, Grand Jewelry (1860-1880)

Because the Grand or Mid-Victorian era corresponded with the death of Queen Victoria’s husband, many jewelry pieces have solemn, grave designs. Known as mourning jewelry, the pieces feature heavy, dark stones. Jet, onyx, amethyst, and garnet are frequently found in jewelry from this period. The jewelry also became especially creative during this period. More colorful designs were born featuring shells, mosaics and colorful gemstones.

Late Victorian, Aesthetic Jewelry (1885-1900)

During the Late Victorian or Aesthetic period, jewelers used diamonds and feminine, bright gemstones such as sapphire, peridot, and spinel. Star and crescent designs as well as elaborate hat pins were also popular.

Arts and Crafts Jewelry (1894-1923)

Due to the Industrial Revolution, many jewelry designers rebelled during the Arts and Crafts movement, returning to intricate jewelry designs and handmade craftsmanship. It was common for jewelry of this era to be simple in pattern, made of colorful, uncut stones.

Art Nouveau Jewelry (1895-1915)

Designed by Rene Jules Lalique in France and other jewelers in America, Art Nouveau jewelry features natural designs such as flowers and butterflies.

Edwardian Jewelry (1901-1910)

The Edwardian period was born when Queen Victoria died and her son Edward became king. During this period, expensive gemstones such as diamonds, emeralds and rubies and elaborate designs were the fashion.

Art Deco Jewelry (1920-1935)

Influenced by African, Egyptian and Japanese themes, Art Deco jewelry is famous for its geometric designs, sharp lines, and bright colors. Bakelite, celluloid, enamel and doublets were used frequently during this era. Necklaces were long and bracelets were worn many at a time. Amber and murano beads were worn as well as chokers.

Retro Jewelry (1940s)

Inspired by Hollywood, Retro jewelry is colorful, bold and elaborate. Commonly worn were large cocktail rings, bracelets, watches, necklaces and charm bracelets.
