Announcement   Well, the last trial run here did not last very long, but after an almost 3 year absence, life for us has stabilized, we are back in battery, of sorts, and ready to pay attention to Etsy once again.

I will be listing/re-listing selected antique necklaces over the next couple of weeks, but the selection will be much smaller as I verify which items to relist and which to delete from the on-line inventory (had to repay some favors from the prior listings, so I want to ensure that which I list is available to sell).

I have added PayPal checkout to my payment options and I still do lay-away with flexible payment options (i.e., your choice of how much at a time - I have had some faithful, steady customers that bought that way).

Hello Jay! the necklace arrived this morning and I am very pleased with it.It is in great condition,it looks great on and it is the perfect length! You were right to say that the clasp is very practical,I too have very long hair so it helps being able to put it on and take it off with ease,and without having to mess up my hair! I'd like to take this oppurtunity to thank you for your kind and friendly manner,your patience throughout the process and also for your funny and entertaining stories.I must admit I am very curious about your mysterious role and involvement in the cold war? It was truly a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to my next purchase from GeminisGems! Warm regards.Michail

We have things we have made, collected, and/or restored that we want to share with others. Some things need a new home or we have multiples of similar things that want to be unique in a new environment. We have an "open systems" mentality, that is, we want to communicate openly and not hide anything. We will share any information we have about our things and activities that are of interest to others. We do our best to describe the items we are selling completely and fairly, plus provide meaningful pictures. We also offer LAY AWAY on any of our items for sale

However, misunderstandings occur and mistakes are made, so open communication is necessary to clear up these issues when they occur. If you have a question about any aspect of one of our items, please ask and we will try to respond in a timely fashion. Please note that sometimes electrical storms make it impossible to operate a computer safely, so we have to wait until the weather clears before responding. We live in the region called the Lightning capital of the USA and during hurricane season, anything can happen.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
Payment
I only accept US customers (Continental US, Hawaii, Alaska, or APO/FPO); I am not xenophobic, I just do not want to spend the time doing what has to be done to perform international shipping.

US dollars only and they should be sent immediately after order verification for credit & debit card payments via PayPal or within 10 days of initiating a transaction per our instructions below for checks, money orders, etc.

Payment can be made via PayPal by credit or debit card. I also accept personal, cashier’s, or business checks plus money orders.

Upon purchase, please contact me via email, no later than (3) three days after your order to purchase to confirm the order.

Checks for items exceeding $35.00 in price are held for 5-10 days to ensure clearance. Credit/Debit card payments, lesser checks, and money orders are sent the next mailing day, weather permitting.

If there is a problem with these payment time frame, please contact me so we can make other arrangements.

No payment received within 14 days of the order to purchase allows me the right to cancel the sale.

LAY AWAY is negotiated to meet the needs of each buyer and shipping is delayed until the final payment has been made.
Shipping
I will try to ship to you within the payment windows above, however, hurricanes or other weather conditions might pose an obstacle occasionally.

I try to quote the lowest, actual postal or shipping rate based on weight &/or package size. For the products I have in this shop, size or weight is not usually an issue. If I have a choice of shipping first class postage vice priority, I prefer the former for lightweight items.

Feel free to email us for an exact shipping quote to your zip code.

If you live in the Tampa Bay area and wish to pick up an item in person or arrange a mutually convenient rendezvous, I will be happy to try to accommodate you.

No packing, materials or handling fees are charged because we use recycled packing materials whenever possible.

Insurance is optional on amounts under $50.00 but it is at your risk if you decline it. Delivery confirmation usually is standard, but if not, it is available if you wish to purchase it.

I pack well and can provide proof of mailing to your zip code, but my liability ends there if you choose not to insure.

You make the choices and pay the costs, so choose wisely. If you buy an expensive item and choose not to insure it, or otherwise track it, my postal or shipping receipt will have to suffice as proof of shipping.

The goal here is to get your item to you as effectively as possible (note I did not say "efficiently', that word does not apply to the transportation infrastructure of this country).
Refunds and Exchanges
Sales are final unless the item has been misrepresented. All my items are unique: I restore/recreate antique necklaces and related items, based on what the beads tell me they can do.

Because of the uniqueness issue, exchanges are unlikely; I try to describe things fully, fairly, and completely, however if an error occurs then a refund is in order. But let us talk first.

Personal service is my pleasure. Part of the enjoyment of selling is providing the customer a pleasant buying experience. I am not a business, just someone disposing of a collection of good "stuff" acquired over a lifetime of collecting or items made or restored over the same period of time. This shop is part of my "pre-estate sale".

All items come from a non-smoking home. We have had a poodle and a parrot in residence in the past, in case you have severe allergies, but they passed a couple of years ago.
