Announcement   I SHIP WORLDWIDE! It is our belief here at the Butterfly Effect Inc. that we are all connected, like an elegant, elaborate, and complex tapestry. Therefore, in respect for the whole, we strive to be socially conscious and responsible in all that we do in our personal lives, professional lives, and commercial lives. Just like the scientific phenomena which states that a Butterfly flapping its wings in NYC affects the weather patterns in the rain forests in Brazil; we also believe that a woman buying one of our silk wraps in NYC affects the lives of women and families in Southeast Asia, the United States, South America and elsewhere in the global market. It is for this reason that we are making every effort to buy our silk from women's fair trade cooperatives and purchase our vintage jewelry direct from sweet little old vintage ladies.

Each person who is continuously working on the development of this shop has a personal involvement in International Human Rights, domestic Human Rights, and their Local Living Community, Together, we have an interesting and diverse combination of experiences which has forged the foundation of our companies philosophy. We make it our first priority to be socially conscious, mutually respectful, and authentic in all of our transactions; and we also make it our primary goal to provide our customers with beautiful, quality, and fair trade creations.

I have been an artist and designer for almost 30 years, first selling my jewelry designs to Saks Fifth Avenue in 1988; and later becoming a human rights attorney. I believe that we offer our buyers the finest quality handmade artisan wraps; along with some of the most beautiful and authentic vintage jewelry made by the finest designers of the past. You can expect to find, in our shop, the most exquisitely hand made silk and merino wool wraps/shawls/scarves; along with some of my original jewelry designs. In addition, we offer lovely authentic vintage jewels made with pride by designers, and fine craftsmen/women of old, who had an eye for refined beauty and an impeccable skill for designing with an amazing attention to detail. A skill rarely expressed in our modern "vintage style" jewelry.

We LOVE to hear from you, so please feel free to contact us;or visit our facebook page at: facebook.com/thebutterflyeffectinc and leave your comments; or visit our blog: thebutterflyeffectinc.wordpress.com. We will be posting stories and photos of some of the original Charming Vintage owners of the Vintage jewelry in our shop.

if i could leave 10 stars i would. This is a beautiful piece of jewelry and worth every penny. It is my favorite piece and I am so happy to have received it before my birthday thanks to Victoria the owner. I know it was categorized as a bridal piece but I am not a bride but Rubies are my birthstone and I thought this bracelet looked stunning in the photo and it is even prettier in person. Thank you so much I really appreciate the great service.

Shipping
Shipping will be via First Class or Priority Mail for U.S. addresses. International shipments will go by First Class International. Ready-to-ship items will ship within 3 business days of payment (usually same or next day).

I will ship internationally, but if there is no insurance bought by you or available to your country, I can not be responsible for the item once it has left my hands.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs.

Individual country import restrictions are found at

If your country does not permit the import of the item you have ordered through the mail I will unfortunately have to cancel your order and refund your payment in full.

I usually ship within 3 days of purchase. Prices of shipping
are listed with the items.

Insurance is optional but highly recommended as I am not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items. Please let me know if you want insurance added by leaving
me a note in the "Message to seller" spot when you make a purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges - Return Policy - I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If for some reason you are not completely satisfied, notify me immediately or no later than 3 days of confirmed receipt, mail your purchase back and I will refund your payment less shipping, Etsy fees and PayPal fees. If you decide to return your artisan wrap or jewelry after 3 days all the above fees will be deducted and there will be a 25% restocking fee. Contact me with any questions.
NO ITEM MAY BE RETURNED AFTER 2 WEEKS FROM DATE OF RECEIPT.

If an item needs to be repaired, due to the loss of a stone, which can happen with vintage jewelry pieces, return it and it will be replaced and returned. The fee will be shipping costs and possibly a nominal fee, of approximately .50 to replace the stone. On some items there will be no fee to replace the stone. We can discuss the specific cost of the replacement stone by e-mail, as the aforementioned costs are approximations since the actual cost will depend on the rarity of the stone to be replaced and if I have that color on hand or if I have to research and special order the stone. PLEASE NOTE THAT. ON OCCASION, THERE ARE SOME STONES THAT ARE NOT REPLACEABLE DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY MAY NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE.

Items must be returned in original condition and packaging.
The buyer will pay the necessary shipping for a return unless
the item was damaged upon receipt. If return is due to damage,
please contact me to resolve the problem.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need to contact the seller, you may do so by clicking on "contact this seller," which is located at the bottom of every listing, or "click on the conversation button" located at the top of every page.
