Sitara Handmade Jewelry ❤ Vintage Siver Jewelry

Oslo, Norway | 55 Sales

Announcement    I work as a jewelry designer and goldsmith for Sitara - In this shop you will find a mix of my own handmade silver jewelry with colorful gemstones, and vintage silver jewelry.

All my Sitara jewelry are handmade in Norway and each single gemstone are carefully selected by me ❤ Most of my inspiration and jewelry can be described with the word contrasts. I am strongly influenced by the East, especially India with its sumptuous colorful culture.

The vintage silver jewelry are of Nordic origins, but also from Mexico and other places. All vintage jewelry listed are in 925 silver (if not stated otherwise), they are hall marked, and if not they are tested by me.

Please note that almost all of the vintage jewelry are previously worn, and as silver scratches very easily, there will almost always be signs of wear.

Due to the very costly shipping fees from Norway I ship all my jewelry without tracking and I ship for FREE.

I strive to describe all my jewelry as it is and to show the products as true to the real product in all all the photos. Please note that there could be a slight color deviation, as I have no control over the color calibration on your monitor or screen.

Most of the vintage items are rinsed in an ultra sound machine and then polished in a polishing drum; they will have a more shiny look than others.
 When I feel it would enhance the all over look of the jewelry; I have chosen to keep the patina and oxidation of time.



I will do my very best to ship all items within a very short period of time. 
The vintage jewelry are all ready to ship, while my handmade jewelry might take 1-3 days to make.

Sometimes it could be circumstances that makes it difficult to follow up on the orders and the time from purchase to making the items could increase. This could be due to illness, vacation or unforeseen circumstances. If so, you will be notified.

The recipient are responsible for familiarize themselves regarding the local custom fees and they are payed by the recipient, as are returns.

About SitaraNordicJewelry

On Etsy since 2013

To create is one of the greatest joys

I'm a happy designer and goldsmith from the land of the midnight sun. All my Sitara jewelry are handmade in Norway and each single gemstone are carefully selected by me ❤ I am strongly influenced by India with its sumptuous colorful culture.

I've also been collecting Norwegian and Nordic design jewelry "all my life".
I have a special love for the modernist jewelry, and the modernist Norwegian designers in particular.
I'm also very fond of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco era

I've been so fortunate to attend the PLUS-goldsmith education; the very same institution once attended by the world famous jewelry designers Tone Vigeland and Anna Greta Eker amongst others.

In my shop I sell both my own handmade Sitara jewelry and silver vintage jewelry.

Returns and exchange details
I do my very best to document all my jewelry. I edit all my photos to be as true to the item as possible. However, some color variation can occure as each monitor can be slightly different in their calibration.

I also describe the items to the best of my ability: measurements, materials, shapes, stones, colors and so on.

I strive to provide the most accurate information on each item. I hope that the information provided, both written and visual, are as good as it gets.

If something is not up to your expectations, please contact me and we will sort it out :)

I will do my best if you are dissatisfied with your purchase - so if there is anything that you are not happy about; please contact me and I'm sure we can solve it together :)

Payment is due in full prior to shipment.
VAT and import taxes are the buyers responsibility. The laws for import are different in every country, and any taxes or fees are not included in the price on Etsy.

Shipping
Due to the very costly shipping fees from Norway I ship all my jewelry WITHOUT tracking - The exception are a few Asian countries (see below under "Exceptions")

An upgraded shipping with tracking using Fedex or other international shipping companies are exceptionally expensive, around $350 or 310 Euro.

Sometimes it could be circumstances that makes it difficult to follow up on the orders and the time from purchase to making the items could increase. This could be due to illness, vacation or unforeseen circumstances. If so, you will be notified.

Shipping Damages:
I will always pack my items with the utmost care. As a result, I am not responsible for damages caused by the shipping carriers. If you should be so unlucky and have a shipping damage claim, please contact the shipping carrier and me as soon as possible!
I will do what is reasonable to help with your damage claim and I'm sure it is possible to work something out :-)
Damages incurred by the shipping carrier are not entitled to a refund, return, or exchange.

Lost Orders:
If an order is lost and there is no tracking number there is not much I can do. If you have chosen the FedEx shipping upgrade I will do everything I can to assist in finding your parcel.

Custom:
The recipient are responsible for familiarize themselves regarding the local custom fees and they are payed by the recipient.

Returns:
I do not accept returns because a parcel arrives later than expected.
All return must be shipped with tracking and return shipping fees are payed by the customer.

Please contact me with any shipping concerns.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that gold plating on any jewelry, especially rings, will eventually wear off depending on use.

Bright sterling silver will oxidize somewhat over time, and can be cleaned by using silver dip or is done in a jewelry shop for a fair price. To keep your jewelry shiny keep it in a little plastic bag.

The oxidation on my Sitara handmade jewelry will not wear of, as it is only in the areas that do not protrude.

Please contact me for further questions you might have.
