About

Making Science Inspired Jewelry

As a physics and mathematics major, I always tried to look for the perfect items that represented my career path and my interests. So I thought, why not make them myself? I thoroughly enjoy learning about the natural world and encourage others to do so as well.

The jewelry I make will mostly try and capture the beauty that is from the scientific realm, but I also try and include facts and information about what it is you are purchasing. My goal is to make beautiful items that also have something interesting about them, and to spread knowledge on some well known and some not-so well known ideas in science and physics.

A galaxy is both beautiful and fun to look at but they are also on average 100,000 light years across. Meaning? It would take you 100,000 years to cross from one end to the other if you could travel at the speed of light (which is 3.0 x 10^8 meters/second). It's daunting to think about!

Shop policies

Welcome to Dark Matter Jewelry!

Due to demands on certain finishes it is not guaranteed that any one particular finish will be in stock. Backings of earrings are also subject to change from rubber or metal depending on supplies. If you would like to contact me for any reason, please do so. I respond very quickly!

Also please note since all of my items are MADE TO ORDER - they are subject to variable changes in color or pigments and no two pairs will look identical. I do my best to replicate what is shown on my photos in my listings but please be aware that some variation will be present.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
RETURN + REFUNDS/EXCHANGES SECTION------------------------------

EARRINGS:
Due to sanitary concerns, I will NO longer be implementing returns/refunds for any earrings.

NECKLACES/CUFFS/RING ORDERS:
Please message me if you have any issues with your order! Once we have agreed on how to proceed with your return/refund or exchange, I ask that the item is returned to me (I cannot do refunds until the item has been returned in my hands). I will not offer pre paid labels for returns or exchanges. The customer must be responsible in returning the item to my return address.


If DAMAGED via MAIL DELIVERY:
If your item is damaged within 1 day of delivery I will need the item sent back and photo evidence of the damaged item . This is a standard Etsy policy among most shops. I will not refund items until I have the item back.
I will not be offering pre paid lables for returns or exchanges.

If you are overseas PLEASE send me a photo of the damaged item via Etsy messaging system.

CANCELLATION FAQ's:

If you need to cancel for any reason: Please let me know as soon as possible and we will issue a full refund BEFORE shipment.

If the item has ALREADY been shipped and you want to cancel: Please allow for the item to get to you and send back to the return address. Simply circle the return address and write on the un-opened package "RETURN TO SENDER". Once the item is back to me I will issue a full refund.

TIME OF DELIVERY COMPLAINTS:

I will not be issuing any refunds for the TIME allotted from shipment to delivery, that is an issue with USPS. I add tracking to all orders. If order is lost, a case number from USPS must be issued and I will then issue a refund for the order once I can confirm from USPS that the package is indeed "lost". You can call USPS for a CLAIM NUMBER CONFIRMATION if this happens

HOW TO CARE FOR ITEMS:

Dark Matter Jewelry are hand made items! Treat them with care. It is not advised to:

-Swim in ocean water with earrings
-Spend long periods of time under water with earrings (showers ok)
-Attempt to bend, misshape, or curve earring posts (they might snap off!)
-Apply large amounts of pressure to glass or earrings
-Throw or toss jewelry
-Apply chemicals to the earrings - the metals for the earrings and necklaces are antiqued and will not respond predictably to chemicals or tarnishes.

WHATS IN THIS STUFF?

--All of the jewelry at Dark Matter Jewelry is nickel and lead free!--

All metals are primarily BRASS with no nickle alloys. My jewelry is not real silver, or real gold (for those finishes).

If you have sensitive ears (as I do) these should not bother you as I wear mine daily and to bed. However, I CANNOT guarantee that one will or will not get specific allergic reactions to the metals.
Payment
Payment through Etsy or Paypal only

No money orders/checks/cash or trades accepted.
Shipping
Please allow 3 -5 business days for preparation of your items!
During the holiday season PLEASE be aware that sometimes items will most likely have an additional 1-5 shipping days to demands on USPS!

You will receive a notification from Etsy when your package is sent.
All items are sent with tracking AND are insured.

Depending on supplies, you will receive your hand made goods either in a cardboard jewelry box or organza bag with thank you-magnet.

SHIPMENT FAQ's:
If you need expedited shipping: Please contact me! I can change the shipping charges for expedited shipping as long as we are in contact BEFORE I send the order out.

If you need to cancel for any reason: Please let me know as soon as possible and we will issue a full refund before shipment.

If the item has already been shipped and you want to cancel: Please allow for the item to get to you and send back to the return address. Once I receive the item I will issue a refund. I do not give refunds until the item is back in my hands.
