Due to very limited free time lately, and my hope of dedicating more time to making jewelry, only periodically do I order items just to stock this shop. All listings are generally studio overstock and still first quality. If you see something you like then snag it, for I am no longer accepting custom request orders.

I encourage ALL international buyers to request registered mail or another insurable option, for I am NOT responsible for purchases that are sent and that do not arrive at their destination. ***

Hello, as you learned on my shop home page, I have a passion for lampwork beads and gemstones, and I would love to spend any free time that I have working with both to create beautiful jewelry. I know that you, too, appreciate your craft and prefer to spend your time indulging in your passion. Hopefully, this shop will help you achieve that very goal.

My experiences with gem purchasing have left me seeking high quality stones in larger quantities than I will ever use ... but these little brilliant beauties sure are a gorgeous sight when they first arrive! In an effort to recoup some of my purchasing resources so that I can re-invest in my hobby, I will be listing many gemstones for sale in my shop. This is NOT A DESTASH SHOP (one of those will someday appear out of necessity, but this is not the place) and the gemstones listed will not be second quality. Stones that should remain in that destash drawer will do just that, and they will not be listed here. I inspect all stones to assure that they meet my high standards for incorporating them into my handcrafted jewelry. I like a very clean and quality stone for my personal use and for listing in this shop.

When I list stones in quantities 2, I will do my best to seek pairs of stones of similar cut, shape & size. Although stones sometimes vary slightly when purchased on a strand or half-strand strand, I will be sensitive to the need for matching pairs for earrings. As you read my listings for pairs, I will attempt to add information to this respect so that you can make an informed decision about your potential purchase. Also, I assure that all beads can take 26 gauge wire unless otherwise stated; some larger beads or nuggests generally accept a lower gauge (thicker) wire.

Sometimes a strand or half-strand that I purchase will include some beads with noticeable surface abrasions from "snuggling" up to the other beads. Those beads with surface abrasions will not make thier way into this shop.



As an appreciated customer, I will try to make your purchasing experience from this shop one that is worth your while, for I hope that you will come looking and purchasing again & again.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
PAYMENT – For US orders, I prefer PayPal, but will also accept credit cards. Items will be shipped only after payment has cleared. (If you have any questions about payment, I please encourage you to convo me.)

Massachusetts residents will be charged 6.25% sales tax.
Shipping
I understand that when you make a purchase of gemstones, you would like your package to arrive at your doorstep in as timely manner as possible, and that you hope that the package can survive a perhaps bumpy journey to you. All of your purchases will be carefully wrapped and placed in a jewelry box before being enclosed within a special shipping envelope with suitable packing material.

All purchased items are shipped via the US Postal Service. Shipments within the US include tracking and delivery confirmation. (If a USPS Express or Priority Mail service is required, please contact me at the time of purchase. The increased shipping fee will be billed to you through Paypal via a separate invoice.)

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING IS NOT BY REGISTERED MAIL AND IS NOT INSURED UNLESS REQUESTED BY BUYER FOR AN ADDITIONAL FEE, but if it is preferred then please contact me for a quote for a shipping upgrade. (Please not that USPS shipping fees have recently increased.)

Insurance is recommended, for I cannot be responsible for lost packages that are not insured. Insurance rates for US shipments are as follows:
$0.01 to $50.00 – fee of $1.70;
$50.01 to $100.00 – fee of $2.15;
$100.01 to $200.00 – fee of $2.60
$200.01 and above – your insurance will be provided at no cost to you (USA shipments only)
Refunds and Exchanges
Purchases may be returned within 7 days for a full refund, minus any shipping charges. Buyer must bear the cost of return shipping. If you ever have questions about your purchase, please convo me ... I want you to be completely satisfied. Feedback is left only after buyer leaves feedback, and it will be equal feedback. Please know that I get behind in leaving feedback ... my laptop is sometimes quite slow and I have all I can do to find time to list items and get them shipped in a timely manner.



Once again, thank you for visiting Bits of Brilliance. Please come again, for my selection of gemstones will increase as I continue to have a passion for these little briliant beauties!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please know that many of the gemstone focals and pairs listed in this shop are color treated or enhanced gemstone. I simply write descriptions that so that a buyer is aware of what is listed. I expect that buyers have some knowledge about the supplies that they are purchasing (i.e. that pink topaz is color treated stone, and that it does not naturally occur in nature); therefore, if there has been treatment of a stone, it is not always mentioned in a description. I am not a gemologist and do not have the knowledge to answer every question about a gemstone. I rely upon the information given to me by my suppliers. I do not have the experience to offer certification for any stone, and if that is something that you are looking for for a customer, may I suggest that you seek the services of a professional jeweler.

I am working toward reducing my inventory so that I may focus more on making jewelry.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Please convo if you have any questions. Have a great day!
