Announcement   ALTODIVAJEWELS IS OUT OF TOWN OCTOBER 21-26. Any items purchased during that time will be shipped on October 27. Thank you!
AltoDivaJewels - If you are interested in an item and it's priced too high for you, come back later - I lower the price of unsold items 2 months after the initial listing, and then (usually) every month thereafter until it sells. If you think the price is too low, I may have just lowered the price, so grab it before someone else does! About me: I'm a classical singer who has been collecting vintage jewelry, clothing, and supplies (beads, rhinestones, cabochons, broken jewelry) for over 15 years. I'm liquidating my huge collection. Check back often for new items. Each purchase helps to support this contralto in her singing career, but if you'd prefer to show support by coming to concerts & listening to sound clips, you can check out my performance website at http://www.marjoriebunday.com.

Payment
I accept Paypal and Etsy checkout payments, as well as money orders.

Money orders are due 7 business days after purchase - please send me a note letting me know it's on the way. Sorry, I can not mail out items until I have received the money order, preferably an American Express or US Postal Service one. If I have not received your money order within 7 days, and did not receive a note saying you sent it, I will cancel the order and relist the item. If your payment arrives after the order has been canceled, providing no one else has purchased the item, I will reactivate the order and send you the item. If someone else has purchased it, I will return your money order. This can all be avoided by sending me a note saying you have mailed it. Thanks!
Shipping
ABOUT SHIPPING
I am now using Etsy's calculated shipping, and each item's weight and dimensions includes a shipping box and packing materials. I only charge exact postage costs, never a handling fee. I use discounted postage and pass the savings on to you - rates for postage purchased and printed online are a little cheaper than paying for postage at the post office.

I will happily mail multiple items together in the same box. If you purchase multiple items, calculated shipping will work out your shipping discounts based on the dimensions and weight that I have entered for each item. Etsy's calculated rate may be higher than the actual postage cost, since I generally enter dimensions of 4x4x4 inches for the shipping box, and multiple pieces of jewelry can fit into one of those boxes. I will refund any overpayment of shipping costs to you through Paypal or Etsy checkout (whichever one you used to pay) within 24 hours. If you pay via money order, I will package the item(s) and weigh them to give you an exact shipping rate before you mail your money order.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING (within the United States);
I ship items via United States Postal Service First Class Mail or Parcel Post as a default, but sometimes Priority Mail is cheaper. I always go for the cheapest shipping method unless requested to do otherwise. If you need an item by a specific date, please tell me, and I will do everything I can to rush the shipping. If you request Priority or Express Mail, please be prepared to pay the higher rate.

I am not responsible for items lost or damaged by the postal service in the mail. I pack very carefully to minimize any risk of damage. If any items are damaged due to inadequate packing by me, please send me a photo and we can work out a refund. I recommend that you purchase insurance for transactions over $30.00, but I do not usually require it. I do purchase delivery confirmation for each package, so there is some level of tracking going on. Remember, if you don't request and purchase insurance, AltoDivaJewels cannot be responsible for items lost in the mail.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (outside of the United States):
My store policy is to only charge actual shipping cost, there is no handling fee. I am happy to combine shipping on items, and again, I will only charge actual shipping, and will refund any overpayment through Paypal or other online payment service.

I will not falsify customs forms, and I will not state that the items are a "gift" -- I am shipping merchandise, and you must be prepared to pay any custom or tariff fees associated with it. Please be aware of what types of items are forbidden to be shipped into your country - if you purchase an item that is restricted by customs to your country of residence, I will cancel the order and refund your payment. I am not responsible for an international shipment once it leaves my hands - I have no power over how long it may stay in customs. I have had a few bad experiences when I sold on eBay, particularly with Great Britain, with customers never receiving their package because of a customs snafu. Because of this past experience, all international shipments are at the buyer's own risk, I hold no responsibility after I mail it. Unfortunately, insurance is not available for international shipments through the United States Postal Service, so if you require insurance, we will have to ship using a more expensive method.
Refunds and Exchanges
If the items are not as described or pictured, AltoDivaJewels will give a full refund upon return of the items, including all shipping costs. Because I deal with vintage and used items, I can not offer a refund for any other reason. Please realize that vintage items sometimes come with a little dirt and wear on them. Please look at the photos and read the descriptions carefully, and keep in mind that the colors can sometimes be a little different from one computer screen to another. I try to describe any way that the actual colors are different from what I see on my screen.

In the event of loss or damage due to the actions of the United States Postal Service, I can only offer a refund if the customer purchased insurance. I pack my items very carefully for shipping, and in all of my Etsy and eBay selling never had an item damaged in transit.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you make additional purchases before I have shipped your package, I am happy to add items to your order so that you can save on shipping, but send me a conversation to make sure I haven't shipped already. After you've confirmed, go ahead and complete the transaction, and then I will refund any excess shipping charges via Paypal or other online payment service.
