Description

This listing is for a pair of 18k yellow gold pools of light earrings made with undrilled rock crystal quartz spheres, set in a handmade pronged cup setting.

I hand fabricate these earrings from wire and sheet, start to finish, in the style of the pools of light jewelry of the Victorian Era. It was believed that the undrilled quartz spheres held tiny spirits, which were responsible for the dancing light play inside the lucid stones.

Each earring holds a 7mm genuine and natural clear quartz sphere. I build each cup setting and custom fit it to the stone, bringing the interior to a high polish to ensure that the sphere will glow as nicely as possible. This glow will increase in certainly lighting conditions to a bright white flash, which is difficult to capture with a photograph. Four prongs hold the orb securely in place.

The frame around each stone is brought to a matte satin finish and then selectively burnished to create a concentric ring of flash to complement the soft glow of the quartz.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or custom inquiries for different metal or stone combinations. But do keep in mind that I may require 2-3 weeks for fabrication.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept payment via Paypal or Etsy Direct checkout. Cancellations will be honored case by case, dependent on my progress with your order at the time of the request.

Returns & exchanges

I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
In the event that your order doesn't meet with your satisfaction, I will accept returns when contacted up to one week (7 days) after item is confirmed delivered. Item must be returned in original packaging in its original condition. Buyer pays return shipping and once the item is received by me, will receive refund of the item cost minus my cost of original shipping and insurance. Unsolicited returns will not be honored.

In issues of incorrect size received from the client or in the case of custom ordered items, unfortunately, I cannot offer blanket returns. The buyer must assume responsibility for giving me the correct size (and any other pertinent info) at the point of sale as I will, of course, assume responsibility for building things to spec. It might be possible for me to size or otherwise alter the item for you for a fee after the fact. In these instances, the buyer is responsible for shipping in both directions.

Please always feel free to ask questions and inquire with me for any clarification :)

Shipping policies

Upon receipt of payment, for pre-fabricated items, I will ship within 3 business days. For custom orders, please allow 2-3 weeks. (I use 2-3 weeks as a catch-all, as I have another job and potentially multiple orders. Very often, it is possible to expedite the process. If you would like something by an earlier date, please feel free to contact me prior to purchasing, and I'll do whatever I can to accommodate your timeframe.)

In cases of payment by check or money order, I will ship after payment has cleared.

I ship nationally and internationally via USPS. Within the US, I use priority mail. Internationally, I ship via first class. Contact me about shipping upgrades if you need your items faster.

Parcels are always sent with insurance for the full value of the order.

***The buyer assumes all responsibility for international customs fees and taxes (where applicable).***

Custom orders require a minimum of 50% down before I will begin fabricating anything. This helps with the immediate material expenses of fulfilling the order. The remaining balance is due prior to shipment.

Additional policies

If you have any concerns or questions about my policies, please contact me BEFORE purchasing. I am happy to explain things on a case by case basis where necessary. I want you to feel comfortable with your purchase and the purchase process :)
