Item details

Vintage from the 1900s

Materials

10k gold, shell, seed pearls

This is one of the most stunning cameos I've come across. It is in beautiful condition for its age. The shell cameo features a beautiful lady. The artist of this piece has incorporated some great attention to detail in this brooch. There is a swivel pendant bail that can be tucked under when worn as a brooch or lifted up if worn as a pendant. There are 3 small bead pearls accenting the piece.

The brooch measures about 1 1/3 by just under 1 1/8" and is a hefty 5.9 grams total weight. While there is no gold purity marks, I guarantee this to be at least solid 10k gold. Prior to 1907's stamp act, gold pieces in the US were not required to be marked. This piece is consistent in every way with this era.

Returns & exchanges

While all sales are to be considered final, if you should have a problem with your piece, please let me know and I will work with you to fix it.

I do my best to provide accurate descriptions, but if an item is found to be grossly misrepresented, I will gladly provide a refund.

Shipping policies

All items will be shipped via USPS with confirmation of delivery and insurance to the US. To keep rates reasonable, international orders will just have tracking. Ordered items will be sent out within 2 business days unless otherwise stated.

DISCLAIMER: We are not responsible after items reach the post office. We also can not be held responsible once packages leave the US, should items go missing or there be issues with customs. To date I've never had a problem with customers not receiving goods. Shipping times are much longer though.

Your item will be thoughtfully packaged to avoid any potential damage during delivery.

1/31/16: Regrettably after nearly 7 years here on Etsy, I've had to raise my shipping and handling charges. International orders will see the biggest hit. I LOVE my international buyers too so this breaks my heart. I'm not looking to profit off my handling fees but will refund some if there is an excessive difference.

Payments

Secure options
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We accept most major credit cards through Etsy's direct checkout or Paypal. Paypal will allow you to pay by e-check too, however these transactions tend to take about 10 business days to clear and, as a result, will delay the shipping your package until that time.

Additional policies

PRICING: "Hello, my name is Melissa and I'm a gem and jewelry addict." Whew...there, it's out! Most of my pieces here are from my personal collections. Therefore I don't always get crazy good deals where I jack the prices way up. My shop is a hobby business more than anything; I use to help support my family. I'm not able to do deep discounts as some shops here are. I also pay hefty taxes on business here, so my profit on Etsy is not great after taxes, listing and selling fees, credit card fees, and of course my item cost. I'm here because I LOVE to share and hopefully I can make a few dollars doing it too in order to compensate for my time.

RESERVED LISTINGS: I know what it's like to fall in love with a one of a kind piece and payday is just days away. I will reserve a listing for serious buyers only for a few days. Please understand, it hurts shop owners to miss out on sales opportunities when someone asks for a reserve then purposely flakes out. Don't be that person. Unfortunately, I've had too many do this to me so I'm hesitant to continue for more than a few days any more.

LAYAWAY: Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of working like a bank so my layaway terms are not as liberal as some. I've had too many abuse this and don't want to work like a collection agency. It's not my style. If there is an item over $300 I will take half up front and require payment of the other half within 30 days. No coupon codes will be accepted on any layaways and a 10% restocking fee will be held for those who don't honor payment completion (the balance will be refunded). For purchases over $500 I may divide into 3rds. I will not do terms past 60 days (a third payment up front, a third payment every 30 days apart thereafter). My shop is more of a hobby than a traditional business. I really appreciate your understanding :).
