Description

Vintage Jewelry - Vintage Ballet Brooch - Ballet Pin

This is a beautiful vintage dancer brooch . . . and appears to have been "inspired by" a very popular (and now very expensive) ballerina pin created by Alfred Phillipe for Trifari in the 1940s. This rhinestone brooch doesn't have the quality finish that the Trifari ballerina has (and this one has some flaking of the gold tone metal on the back - please see the fourth picture) but it is lovely nonetheless. Great gift for a dancer or as a recital gift - beautiful figural brooch even with the condition issues.

One thing about this one that I think is particularly interesting is the use of different color pastel faux pearls on the skirt - at first I thought it might be the result of repair over the years, but they seem to be original as they are consistent in size. She is approximately 3" tall.

Please be aware, the plating was not done very well and tiny cracks (also known as crazing) are visible in the finish - I have tried to capture it in the pictures, but if you need more information, please ask. Usually I do not sell items that have this sort of condition issue, but she is really pretty :). Other than the finish, the stones, pearls, pin and catch are in very good condition.

BOX/BOW/GIFT WRAP:

All items are placed in a new white gift box tied with a fabric ribbon prior to shipping. Convo me if you'd like your item gift wrapped or a note enclosed.

GENERAL:

Thanks for looking at my shop! Please let me know if you have questions. All of my items are maintained in a smoke free, pet free environment.

SHIPPING:

U.S. customers can choose 1st class or Priority shipping at checkout. I absorb some of the cost to ensure that your item arrives quickly and in lovely condition. I ship to some countries outside of the U.S. – by U.S. First Class Package International - please see my shipping policies for more details.

Returns & exchanges

I want you to be really happy with your purchase. I am very picky about quality and don't offer anything for sale that I feel has a condition problem. Vintage jewelry, by its nature, has some degree of wear - but I try not to offer pieces that have noticeable flaws. If you receive something that has an unexpected issues with its condition, please contact me and we'll figure out the best way to fix the problem (return/refund, exchange, etc.).

What if you change your mind? I offer refunds for items returned and received by me within 14 days of purchase. Buyer pays for return shipping, with insurance and delivery confirmation. I will process a full refund upon receiving the item (assuming it is in the same condition as sent). Please contact me before returning an item so that I can be expecting it.

Please note - insuring and item is always the responsibility of the shipper. If you return an item, you must purchase insurance in case the item is damaged or lost during shipment back to me. Refunds are only issued upon receipt of an item in a condition identical to that in which the item was shipped, so please be sure to pack the item carefully.

Shipping policies

SHIPPING DAYS: I ship on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays (sometimes more often). Although I indicate that there is a handling time of 1-3 business days, I try very hard to ship on the first shipping day following the date of purchase (and occasionally same day, if the timing works).

IS THIS ITEM A GIFT? Please let me know if the item is a gift and I will be happy to package it in a gift box with a bow!


SHIPPING FEES and INFO:

*******U.S.********

Shipping information is included in every listing. Some items ship by Priority Mail (I contribute a portion of the price on those) some ship Free, some are shipped by 1st Class or Priority based on the customer's choice.

Unless you request otherwise, I will not require that your package be signed for. If you do not want the package delivered unless your signature is received, please indicate so in the Notes to Seller box during checkout.

If you would like service that is faster than what is indicated, please contact me and I will see whether we can work something out. USPS does not offer overnight service, so anything faster than Priority Mail needs to go through Fed Ex or UPS.

*******INTERNATIONAL******************

All of my items are shipped outside the U.S. using 1st Class Package International Service. I purchase labels through Etsy, so a tracking number is provided, but the accuracy of the tracking information depends on the item(s) being scanned consistently.

Depending on the country, a signature requirement may be available for an additional fee. Please let me know before purchase if this is a service that you require and I will determine its availability and price.

VAT, Duties, Handling Charges - Items shipped outside of the US may incur VAT (value added tax) duties or handling charges imposed by the postal carrier in the recipient's country. These charges are the responsibility of the buyer and are not included in the price that I charge. If you have questions about this matter, please contact your postal carrier.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Although I ship within 2 business days, delivery times to countries outside the US may be 2 weeks or more due to forces beyond my control. Delays at customs or in shipping are common (although I have had things make it to Europe in a little more than a week). The US Post Office does not consider a package lost until delivery time exceeds 45 days.
