About

Whimsical Gemstone Sterling Silver Jewelry

Our adventure begins in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, our hometown for nearly 40 years. Our small family has an old adage that may be familiar to you as well: "From a little acorn, a mighty oak grows." We aspire to create something unique for you from our hearts. We selected the name "Gemdrops of the Falls" to reflect our love for the beautiful natural waterfalls in our community.

We believe in making beautiful jewelry that we would like to wear ourselves. We work primarily in Sterling Silver and 14 Karat Gold. Our favorite creations are made with Semi-Precious Gemstones, Freshwater Pearls, and Venetian Glass from Murano, Italy. Therefore, there is no compromise in the quality of each piece; if we wouldn't choose to wear it neither should you.

Our entire family comes together to create Gemdrops of the Falls jewelry. We are the third and fourth generations from our grandfather, an accomplished watchmaker and jeweler in Riga, Latvia during WWII. We try our best to follow in his legacy.

Our handmade jewelry is ready made and sold as is. However, we can alter some pieces for a small fee. All earrings come standard size, even in the kid's section, and can change to posts, wires, lever backs or clip ons. The additional charges are: Sterling Silver pierced leverbacks $3, Sterling Silver clip ons $8, and Pewter clip ons $6. Eyecatchers may be shortened and closed with a Sterling Silver toggle for an additional charge of $5. Please contact us first about a piece you're interested in so we can confirm if changes are possible. Once confirmed, we will update the listing price and title it a custom listing for you.

We measure in inches, but don't be shy about asking any questions on our measurements. Feel free to request more photos.

When we sell in person we discount sets when priced together. On Etsy we have nearly 4 dozen sets listed, so let us know before you purchase a set you like and we'll bundle the prices for you in an updated listing.

Due to a recent increase in the price of Sterling Silver, we've had to increase our prices so we can continue affording to design for you. We will monitor the market and adjust our prices accordingly. Thanks for understanding!

All of our items come from a smoke-free home. New items are listed often so add us to your circle so you remember to stop by.

Plus, we enjoy making custom items! Like one of our designs but want to tailor it for someone or a treat for yourself? Maybe you're looking for something special that you don't see. Just contact us. Give US the challenge of finding that perfect gift.

Payment
We prefer Pay Pal (Mastercard, Visa, Discovery, American Express) and Money Orders. Please note, if shipped within Ohio, a 7.75% sales tax will be applied at PayPal's final checkout. Items will ship within 1 business day after receiving cleared payment. Should there be an issue, we will notify you via Etsy conversation immediately.

Payment by PayPal is required within 3 days of purchase and payment by Money Order is required within 7 business days of purchase. Orders not paid within these time frames will be cancelled and relisted.

For custom orders, we ask for payment up front, especially since the item may not be sellable to the general public once it's made. We'll set up a custom listing for you and once your payment goes through we'll start the process. Then we'll send you a conversation once your order is finished and shipped.
Shipping
Whether for you or someone special, we send every item gift wrapped complimentary. We can even include a gift note for you and send the gift directly to the lucky recipient. We also send an invoice with every order. If you're sending a gift directly to someone and don't want an invoice included, let us know in the "message to seller" box at check out, or via Etsy conversation. As mentioned before, your order will ship within 1 business day of cleared payment. Buy more items together and save with combined shipping rates!

We'll ship your order in a safe packaging box using United States Postal Service Priority Mail. Insurance is included in our listed domestic shipping rates of $6.70. Also, your order will have a tracking number through USPS. Approximate shipping time is 2 to 4 days.

We also ship to the United States for under $6.70. Some domestic USA items have shipping fees of $5.80 and are shipped as Priority Mail without insurance and tracking numbers. Only cell phone staps and small earrings that are less fragile will be sent in puffed envelope packaging as U.S. First Class Mail for $2.30. Other jewelry may not be sent in this package. If you would like to upgrade those items in puffed envelopes with insurance and a tracking number in a postal box, just ask.

Postage for Canada is less because the jewelry is sent International First Class without insurance (unless requested). Estimated arrival for those orders should be between 7 to 14 business days.

Please contact us about International shipping since your location may be less than $8.46 uninsured. We would like to charge the correct shipping amount so please contact us before you purchase so we can check the current rates that apply.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance!
Refunds and Exchanges

You can contact us through Etsy conversation or e-mail at orders [!at] gemdropsofthefalls.com with any further questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because Freshwater Pearls are produced by living organisms, they require special care due to calcareous crystals that are sensitive to chemicals and acids. To care for your cultured Pearls, avoid using perfumes, cosmetics, hairspray, abrasives, solvents, and nail polish removers while wearing them. Don't use ultrasonic cleaners. Wipe with a damp soft cloth having mild soap and water. Like your skin, cultured Pearls contain water and may dehydrate and crack if exposed continuously to heat. Store Pearls in a protective chamois pouch or tissue.

The best way to clean Swarovski crystals is to wipe them with a warm, wet facecloth with mild gentle dish soap. Next, wipe with a warm wet facecloth without soap. Finish by wiping with a clean dry facecloth. Any and all other cleaners can cause damage to the crystals.

Since Sterling Silver is a precious metal, it may need cleaning occasionally. Chlorine and bleach should be avoided with Sterling Silver because they accelerate tarnishing. Using a soft cloth, gently rub the Sterling several times. Then rinse the Sterling thoroughly in warm water and dry carefully. This cleaning process will remove any tarnish or lack of shine and get your Sterling looking like new again. You can also use a special jewelry polishing cloth from your local jewelry store. However, if the cloth is chemically treated avoid Amber, Coral, Emerald, Ivory, Jade, Lapis, Malachite, Opal and Pearls.

Pearls, Sterling Silver, and Gemstones are sensitive and will last longer if you take care of them, so try to put your jewelry on last.

Since we are a small family business, we are not interested in wholesale or consignment at this time. But thank you for your interest!
