Welcome to GemmaBejeweled. I am honored to share the collection of jewelery I have with you. Many of my items are vintage which have been made 20 or more years ago. I can't help but think about the history each one carries with it. Each piece has been a part of a person (s) life before it arrives to you. I find that exciting.

Enjoy searching for that special piece that touches your heart.

Vintage items are almost always pre-worn and will typically have some level of wear. Therefore it is the buyers responsibility to read each listing completely before purchasing.

I welcome any questions and/or a request for additional photos prior to purchasing if needed. A reason must be given as to why you wish to return the item. Please let us know immediately if an item does not arrive within the usual time frame for both Domestic and Overseas shipping. If it is damaged so that we can contact the postal service and get the problem resolved.

If you are not certain of color or style please feel free to contact me before you buy.

I do try to take as many images as possible, and write a clear description, do not hesitate to contact me for more images or questions!
Additional policies and FAQs
In most cases your jewelry will arrive in the same condition in which it was found. I rarely clean vintage jewelry because most seasoned collectors of vintage jewelry prefer to clean the jewelry themselves to insure that it is done correctly. Improper cleaning of jewelry can decress the value of it.

The natural effects of aging (patinas) to metal finishes such as copper, sterling silver and even nickel are often what attracts buyers to vintage jewelry.


Quick Reference for Rating Evaluating Vintage Costume Jewelry

Mint Condition: Jewelry that has never been worn - including new old stock where appropriate - with original boxes and/or tags. No flaws or signs of wear anywhere on the jewelry.

Excellent Condition: Like new but without tags/boxes. If the history of the piece is unknown it cannot be considered "mint", "new", or "never worn" - so "like new" is a good descriptor. No noticeable flaws to the jewelry, including scratches, scuffs, scrapes, chips, tarnish, or patina. No bent pins, worn prongs, or clasps that don't work well. Stones are free from surface scratches and still have their original intended appearance (no fading, discoloration, darkened, dead or missing stones).

Very Good Condition: Jewelry that is wearable and overall in excellent condition but has smaller, barely noticeable flaws. Examples: A slight scuff in a stone, spot of wear to metal, tarnished clasp, or age spot/discoloration to a piece that can be noticed when examined up close - but it is not likely to be noticed when worn because it is a minimal, almost negligible imperfection of some sort. OR, the item is in excellent condition when worn but has more significant flaws on the underside or back of piece. Example: a beautiful silver tone necklace that appears to be in excellent condition but is showing noticeable fading/tarnish/discoloration to the underside of the necklace.

Good Condition: Piece is wearable but has noticeable flaws that could possibly be noticed when worn. Peeling or scrapes to more than a couple of stones/beads, noticeable wear to metals, etc. Often a piece is so beautiful and unique that it can be worn with noticeable flaws because it's that fabulous!

Fair Condition: I do not consider jewelry in fair condition to be wearable. I sell "fair condition" pieces in my junk/craft lots if they have hardware or stones that could fulfill another purpose.

Repairable: I use this term to describe jewelry that is missing stones or hardware that can be replaced relatively easily. Often I will use two descriptors for a piece that needs work. For example: if I have a brooch that is missing two stones but otherwise is in excellent condition with no other noticeable flaws, I will list that piece as "repairable to excellent condition" - meaning that once the stones are replaced the piece could be in excellent condition (provided that the repairer does a good job!).
