Announcement   Be sure to read my shipping policies! Orders take 10 business days to make! Orders placed without Priority shipping or without confirmed contact with myself ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO BE DELIVERED BEFORE 2 WEEKS DOMESTIC OR 4 WEEKS INTERNATIONAL.

I try to make your order within 10 business days (no weekends or holidays) after receipt of payment, but sometimes things come up and I will be sure to message you if I can't ship within 10 business days. This is not my full time job, so shipping days are sporadic! All in all, typical turn around for an order (if payment is received immediately and there are no issues with the post office) is about 14 business days from order placement for US orders. For international orders, 20+ business days.

Since Delivery Confirmation and tracking is provided, Antickquities will not be held responsible for: lost packages, mis-delivery, theft, wrong addresses, or packages returned to sender due to an insufficient address. Be sure to double check the shipping information you provided to Etsy as that is the address being used to ship your order. There will be no refunds for packages not received.

As these are clock hands, they are made of lightweight THIN metal, so they WILL bend! Please keep this in mind when handling them! :) Also, some hands may have slight imperfections, such as small scratches or age spots but don't worry, it just adds some rustic character.

Many of the brass clock hands shown may appear silver or coppery in the pictures, but they ARE brass (unless otherwise noted in the listing), which is a golden tone. It is difficult to distinguish the golden tone in many of the pictures due to the highly reflective surface. All black hands are only black on one side and either white or silver on the other, and all "silver" hands are actually brushed aluminum which is a dull silvery color. I try to show the colors in every listing, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Please remember that because they are so lightweight, my signature hair pick sets are not meant to hold up hair by themselves, and they should be handled gently. Most items are only held together using tension unless otherwise specified. This means they might also come slightly loose in transit. Don't worry, they're not broken! They are meant to be adjustable! Simply re-tighten them using a flat head screwdriver.

About

When we say affordable, we mean it!

BEGINNINGS
Hi there! Thanks for visiting! Antickquities was inspired by my friends and husband and our sudden love for Steampunk (it was VERY sudden, I tell you.) Of course we quickly came to realize that most Steampunk accessories and fashion can be quite expensive, so we ventured out into the city and went about looking for more affordable means to be fashionably gaslamp. I found that my day job (which is at a local craft mall) provided the greatest materials I could ever hope to find: brass clock hands. Beautiful brass clock hands that got absolutely no love just sitting behind the counter day in day out, lamenting their sad clockless existences. So I decided to buy them and show them that they did not need clocks to be loved. I have since turned them into charming accessories for ladies and gents, with the help of my friends and husband.

WHAT IS/ARE ANTICKQUITIES?
Antickquities are timeless embellishments for the modern era. Meaning we bring elegance to modern fashion by incorporating nostalgic implements, such as brass clock hands and hardware. It is a play on words to illustrate the use of clock parts and the true feeling of timelessness we hope to inspire with our pieces. We want to bring beautiful creative pieces to people without breaking the bank, which I wholly understand as a cosplayer. My pieces tend to be customizable as well. I don't really like the "one style suits all tastes" mentality. So, most of my pieces are customizable at your discretion to suit your tastes. Don't like the position of that one clock hand? Change it by loosening the screw! I encourage it!

We also carry Chainmaille by Mobius Flower and Semi-precious gemstone jewelry by Firewolf Crafting!

Frequently asked questions

Other colors?

Unfortunately, no other colors are available for clock hands. Many of the brass clock hands shown may appear silver or coppery in the pictures, but they ARE brass (unless otherwise noted in the listing), which is a golden tone. It is difficult to distinguish the golden tone in many of the pictures due to the highly reflective surface. All black hands are only black on one side and either white or silver on the other, and all "silver" hands are actually brushed aluminum which is a dull silvery color. I try to show the colors in every listing, but if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Care instructions

Please remember that because they are so lightweight, my signature hair pick sets are not meant to hold up hair by themselves, and they should be handled gently. Most items are only held together using tension unless otherwise specified. This means they might also come slightly loose in transit. Don't worry, they're not broken!

Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale pricing on clock hand pieces! Generally, the order size must be 5 listings or more. Message me with the style and quantity desired and I will send you an estimate!

UPGRADE SHIPPING

Upgrade for USA shipping ONLY is available here:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/104754241/upgrade-to-priority-shipping-usa?ga_search_query=upgrade&ref=shop_items_search_1

Upgrade to priority shipping + $12 USA only!

USPS Priority Mail delivers 2-3 business days from the ship date. This WILL put your order further up on the queue, so it will get to you faster once the order is shipped! :)

With this added to your order I will make your items IMMEDIATELY and ship them no later than 2 days after receipt of payment. This is NOT OVERNIGHT! This does, however, cut off 10 days of processing.

This does not replace your shipping fee, but upgrades it! Meaning, the $10 is tacked onto any shipping already accrued in your order.
