Tales from a Rhinestone Junkie

I have recently discovered the beauty of vintage jewelry and am a "new-bee" collector with a particular desire for rhinestone bracelets. For me the sparklier and the bigger the better. Over the past several years I have discovered such designers as Weiss, Trifari, Kramer and Sherman. I find myself fascinated with the designs and color combinations, as well as each designer's quirks such as Sherman's love of the long and slender navette-shaped rhinestones and Weiss' rhinestone "icing" swirls that were applied to many of his designs. I also wonder about each piece's history - oh, if they could only talk!

As my collection grew, my storage space shrunk. My husband often joked about the creaking of the floor underneath the room where I stored my jewelry due to the sheer weight and size of my collection. So, with some hesitation I decided that the time had finally arrived to share my collection with others that have the same appreciation for the workmanship of the jewelry houses and their master designers. My personal stash is now of a manageable size (and yes, the floor has stopped creaking), and I find myself searching for other pieces that would make great additions to my store. I try to acquire pieces using the criteria that they be of high quality construction, in wearable condition, that they are appealing in design and color, and that I would be happy to add to my own collection.

I pride myself in offering many beautiful pieces at an affordable price, so that those who are collecting, working with a tight budget, and wanting to own a piece of costume jewelry history may be able to do so through my store. I hope you find something appealing while browsing through the pages of Prairie Vintage Jewels.

Questions? Please ask.
Shipping
I AM LOCATED IN CANADA, and ship at least three times a week via Canada Post. If it is urgent to receive a purchase ASAP please convo; I will try and accommodate your request, however there may be additional costs associated with expedited shipping. To my Canadian buyers: shipping costs are based on actual costs of mailing. Because I do not charge any handling fees, nor extra costs for materials used when packaging up your purchases, I do use/re-use jewelry boxes, bubble wrap and other supplies wherever possible. Overages paid in shipping costs in excess of $1 will be refunded.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
I happily ship to several countries including the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, The United Kingdom and other European destinations. STANDARD SHIPPING RATES LISTED DO NOT INCLUDE TRACKING OR INSURANCE. I have included shipping options that cover these features, however it does substantially increase the mailing costs. My shipping costs reflect the actual fees that Canada Post charges me. I cover the cost of packing supplies - most of which are recycled or used, and not new - as well as my gas to and from the post office.

Shipping time is USUALLY a minimum of two weeks from here (Canada) to most of the destinations included in my shipping destinations. HOWEVER, due to things beyond my control with Canada Post and other countries' shipping services, delivery CAN take as long as 6 WEEKS from the shipping date. Please be patient, as once the parcel leaves my possession and enters the postal system, its "journey" is out of my hands. I am not responsible nor can be held accountable for the world's postal systems, customs offices and the efficiency or speed at which these entities and their employees do their jobs. Once you've made a purchase, reasonable expectations are that the customer has read, understood and agreed to these facts/terms before purchasing from my store.

I cannot be held responsible for lost international packages which contents have been purchased without the buyer paying for tracking and insurance at the time of purchase.

If you live outside of those countries that are specified in my listings, and wish to purchase an item in my store, please convo. I will consider shipping to other countries provided the appropriate shipping method and associated cost is agreed upon.

I ask that all my international customers (including American buyers) allow at least six weeks for delivery as there are occasional delays in customs, and other factors that could stall a smooth and prompt delivery.
Questions? Please ask.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will make refunds in VERY RARE circumstances, and will only do so at my discretion. If a refund is given, the amount will be for PURCHASE PRICE ONLY - NO SHIPPING COSTS WILL BE REFUNDED. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the piece before purchasing, and to thoroughly read the item's description, where size, color, condition and other notable items are mentioned. I'm sorry, but buyer's remorse or not noticing crucial information in the description after purchase is not basis for a refund. Please carefully read the item description and look at the photos before making your purchase; if additional photos are needed, I am happy to oblige. All jewelry pieces that I sell are checked over before they are shipped, to ensure that they are in working and wearable condition when they are shipped. I am selling vintage items, which in most cases means used, or at the very least, aged, thus, less than perfect. Please be reasonable with me and I'll be reasonable with you.
Questions? Please ask.
Additional policies and FAQs
Note: International customers are responsible for duties, taxes, and other fees incurred on international packages. I complete customs documents honestly showing the item as merchandise with the item price as the value.

The condition and age of the the jewelry listed will vary and most will need cleaning of some sort. I will sincerely attempt to note any flaws or missing stones etc. but there is always a chance I may overlook a small detail. I do my best to describe everything honestly and by purchasing you are agreeing to the fact that all your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. I want this to be an enjoyable experience for both of us. Please email me if you have questions or need additional pictures of a certain item before you purchase. I describe my items as I see them so please, ask questions. ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS.
