Description

A nifty vintage find .... this 1960s / 1970s era handmade amatuer artisan ring was crafted with care, creativity and quality. The primitive simplistic nature of the design adds tons to its vintage handmade character.

Roped silver and a silver band wrap the raised Turquoise cabachon center stone, and it all sits atop a split V side, forked type design, ring band ... all hand cut and carefully put together, many many moons ago. The stone is pale turquoise in color and rather pastel in appearance, it has a smooth polished surface and a dark mount at the base where the silver wrap begins. The twisted roped silver holds its tarnish from many years of wear and existence but it really only adds to the rings primitive vintage charm.

With an inner diameter of about 5/8-11/16" or 17mm, this would be an approximate ring size of 6 to 7, most closely approximating a 6 3/4 size by current US standards. It was once silver soldered on one of the connection points on the back of the centerpiece where the band is attached, but it was done well and the connection is plenty sturdy (if you want a clean and even looking solder point I would be happy to reinforce the already-fixed connection, or all of them, though in my humble opinion I think whomever fixed it years ago did a good solid job ;-)

Materials: sturdy sterling silver with minimal tarnish and age (unstamped); turquoise color stone on a dark mount/base, stone type unknown for sure but it appears to be a pale Turquoise possibly heat treated for uniformity and polish sanded to shape

Weight: approximately 3grams, including metal and stone

Measurements: just shy of a 17mm / 5/8-11/16" inch inner diameter / approximately ring size 6 3/4 (between a 6 and 7 - probably a good pinky ring for most)

Condition: good to excellent vintage condition with mild tarnish and wear (polishes up nicely - see last picture for image on my pinky for color/brilliance comparison); handmade precious metal jewelry


All vintage items will be lovingly packaged for safe shipping. An invoice will be included with your shipment; if you need this sent to a gift recipient please let me know their address and I will send your invoice to you separately.

♥ Domestic / US Buyers: Your item will ship USPS First Class Mail w/delivery confirmation included. ♥

♥ International Buyers: Your item will ship International First Class Mail, with no additional services. Please be sure your country allows for import of such an item before making your purchase, and know that any required licenses, duties or import taxes/fees will be your responsibility. ♥

Returns and exchange details
PLEASE CONSIDER ALL SALES TO BE FINAL. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU'VE TAKEN THE TIME TO READ ALL DESCRIPTIONS, VIEW ALL PICTURES, AND ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE BEFORE MAKING YOUR PURCHASE, TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT.

I love being able to share my treasures and I always want you to be happy with your purchase which is why I go above and beyond to include detailed photographs and descriptions as well as exact measurements for every item I have up for sale.
___________________________________________

** UNHAPPY WITH YOUR PURCHASE??: I do understand there are still a few situations in which you may want to return the item you've purchased, please see below for examples:

>> IF you are experiencing buyer's remorse please understand it is most likely due to you not reviewing all available item details or not asking questions before placing your order, and as such I have no obligation to accept your return, nor is it fair for you to demand I do so at the wasted expense of my effort, time and supplies. BUYERS REMORSE IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE BUT IT IS NOT THE SELLERS FAULT. Some examples of buyers remorse .... even though you knew what you were ordering because of my fabulously detailed pictures, descriptions and exact item measurements, you just don't like it as much in person OR you wound up buying something similar because you were too impatient to wait for my speedy shipping and now you no longer need what you ordered OR it doesn't match as well as you thought it would and you want to try something else instead .... all of these are reasons you are unsatisfied and while I am sympathetic, your lack of satisfaction in such instances, is not because of something I did or didn't do.

IF YOU HAVE A CASE OF BUYERS REMORSE, PLEASE EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY - I will need to honestly know if the item has been used or worn or altered in any way since you received it, as well as the exact reason you want to return it ... I will take your story into consideration and if its an item I can reasonably resell that has not incurred use or damage while in your possession, then I will let you know if you have shop approval to send it back for a refund.

Any authorized/approved returns WILL BE SUBJECT TO A 10% RESTOCKING FEE TO COVER MY SUPPLIES, EFFORT AND TIME SPENT PREPARING/SHIPPING AND RECEIVING/REFUNDING YOUR ITEM. YOU WILL ALSO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COST OF RETURN SHIPPING. After you receive shop approval to send back your item, please use the original packaging materials to safely package the item and be sure to include all original item parts in the same condition shown in the original listing photographs. USPS is my preferred shipping carrier, and all packages should include delivery confirmation as well as any insurance included with the original shipment. Once an approved return is received, I will promptly refund 90% of your original purchase price (less 10% restocking fee to cover my time/supplies) via the same payment method you used to pay me originally.

I WILL NOT ACCEPT RETURNS UNLESS YOU HAVE CONTACTED ME BEFORE YOU SEND THE ITEM BACK TO GAIN APPROVAL AND SECURE A RETURN ADDRESS LOCATION. Any UNAUTHORIZED returns will be considered "your property" and you will be responsible for sending me additional shipping funds if I am to be expected to return it back to you. I will not be bullied into accepting returns that anonymously show up at my door since I never misrepresent any items I sell, nor do I ever list items without giving you close-up pictures, precise details and exact measurements. Blackmailing shop owners into accepting unauthorized returns to avoid negative feedback is unfair at best and ruins the sanctity of the honest Etsy community - EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM and we will discuss it, I'm a fair and reasonable person and very much want everyone to be happy with their purchase. Thank you!

>> IF your item is damaged during shipping please EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY and keep all item packaging so pictures can be submitted to the postal carrier for followup. I am not responsible for damages incurred by the shipping carrier as I package everything with as much love and care as I used to make or procure the items; I've never had an item arrived damaged in all my years of shipping. If your item was expensive enough to include shipping insurance, or if you opted to purchase additional insurance for your item, I will work diligently with you and the shipping company, to see if the damages incurred qualify for refund from the shipping company itself.



** INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS SEIZURES: If customs seizes your package (for international customers) because you bought and imported a prohibited item, I cannot take any financial responsibility, nor will a refund be issued is an item is seized due to negligence of the import laws, or refusal to cover taxes/duties for your specific country. All customs forms are filled out accurately and honestly so please be sure you can import the items you wish to purchase; I will NOT mark items as "gifts" as it is against the law to lie on customs forms or to try and deceive customs authorities. Thank you for understanding.



** DAMAGES FROM NORMAL USE & MY REPAIR OFFER (for handmade jewelry only): If your item becomes damaged due to normal wear and tear, over time, I would be happy to repair it for you, free of cost as long as you cover the shipping charges. If it needs any additional materials to be repaired we can discuss costs BEFORE you send the item back my way so we know we are in agreement on materials costs. If it is not possible to repair, I would be happy to buy back the "bits & peaces" and make you something similar, or something totally different using your leftover odds & ends. And, if you have damaged or broken jewelry that you hold near and dear to your heart, that you would like to turn into a new piece of jewelry just get in touch with me and let me know what you're thinking and we can come up with a custom creation that suits your desires.

___________________________________________

AGAIN I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH - YOU MUST EMAIL ME BEFORE ASSUMING I WILL ACCEPT YOUR RETURN. ALL ITEMS ARE LISTED IN ACCURATE AND HONEST DETAIL. ALL SALES ARE CONSIDERED FINAL.

Shipping policies

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION & INSURANCE: Delivery confirmation (aka a tracking number) is added to all domestic USPS/FEDEX/UPS shipments, at no additional cost to you. International packages ship with customs numbers which are trackable in most major countries. Shipping insurance on USPS shipments is included on higher priced items (as noted in listings) and available at an additional cost for other purchase; the cost of shipping insurance is determined by the value of the items in your package. Please email me before you complete your purchase of you would like a quote for additional postal insurance; once you approve I will add the additional cost to your shipping total before you check out and pay.

POSSIBLE ADDITIONAL FEES FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS: Please be aware that any permits, taxes or customs duties required on your end, will be your responsibility; these costs are NOT included in the costs I quote for shipping.

SHIPPING CARRIER: I ship the majority of my packages thru the US Postal Service, both domestic and international shipments. Larger/heavier items shipping to the continental US will most likely ship with FedEx or UPS instead.

UPGRADES: If you prefer a specific carrier, or need expedited shipping please contact me before you purchase an item so we can agree upon shipping arrangements to fit your needs.

** NOTE: The US Postal Service is the only carrier that I will use if you have an international address, a PO Box address, or if you are requesting shipment to an APO/FPO military address. Thank you for understanding. **

I CANNOT SHIP TO THE FOLLOWING INTERNATIONAL COUNTRIES: I apologize in advance, but the following countries have too many prohibited items, import licenses or customs policies for me to feel confident enough to safely ship packages: Botswana, Burma, Cuba, El Salvador, Ethiopia, India, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kiribati, North Korea, Laos, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malawi, Moldova, Namibia, New Caledonia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Serbia, Slovakia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Vanuatu, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. IF YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED an item shipped to one of these countries please make sure your local government and customs agents will allow the item you wish to purchase, into the country, and make sure you have any necessary permits too, as I will not be responsible for customs' seized items, and I will not issue a refund if customs confiscates or disposes of your item due to negligence of import laws. I will ship to these prohibited countries, only if you understand these risks are yours to take and you assume responsibility once I ship the item out.

ADDITIONAL SHIPPING INFO: All items are packaged with love and care. Your quoted shipping costs include the cost of the materials needed to safely pack and ship your item as well as the exact amount need to ship the item to your door. I do not profit on shipping charges. I cannot take responsibility for the shipping company's actions/faults/errors, and insurance is available if you want additional protection from unexpected damages; in all my years of shipping I've only ever had one package disappear (it was stolen during the holiday season and the police found the empty box) and one package get damaged (it was the carriers fault and luckily was insured).

I almost always ship within 12-24 hours of receiving your payment, and I will contact you immediately if for any reason there will be a delay; tracking info will be posted to Etsy once your item has been shipped.
