About WELO OPAL

'Ethiopian Welo/Wello Opal is a relatively new find and rapidly gaining popularity. It has some of the most amazing patterns of any opal, and plays of color that reflect shades of light seen nowhere else in the natural world. Anybody who loves opals I would urge to give this gem a chance. It is easy to become mesmerized by its unique beauty. Because of the hydrophane property of this opal it can become crystal clear when saturated in water and as it dries it will turn completely opaque, and then slowly return to a crystal/ semi-crystal state as it completely dries out which can take anywhere from a few days to several months. Over that time you can watch the opal slowly reveal new patterns and plays of color every day, sometimes gaining colors, and sometimes colors change or fade away. Because opal is not one of the hardest stones, ( only six on scale of 10,) it is not recommended to be worn everyday, in the form of a ring, and NEVER put your hands in bleach or harsh detergent when wearing your ring.

Prospective buyers are responsible for determining the physical condition of items from the Highly Magnified Photos in the listing and the printed description. Seller notes are based on opinion and are provided for guidance only. The photos in the listing are a part of the description and detail any slight imperfections that may not be noted. Antique, and Vintage jewelry may have wear commensurate with age. Please view the highly magnified photos for detail. Weights and gold value's stated are Approximate and not guaranteed, this includes stones etc. (in the weight.) Age stated in the title and descriptions are opinion based on sellers experience and is in no way guaranteed to be such.

If authorization is given to make an exchange, on a Vintage or Antique item, or a refund on a New Hand Crafted item, instructions will be given for returning the item.

If an item is returned, without prior consent, or more than 2 weeks after being received, it will be returned to the sender. NO item will be authorized for return, if it has been damaged in any way, AFTER it has been in your possession. All items are inspected, and size verified, when listed and before they are sent out. So, please KNOW your Current ring size Before ordering. The 'wrong size,' is not a valid reason for a refund on Vintage items. I have a mandrel and I use it to verify size before listing any item. Any jewelry store will show you your finger size for free.

Please direct any questions THRU THE SHOP, (not by e-mail.) and PLEASE Read the shop 'Policies,' BEFORE making a major purchase. A well informed shopper is a Happy Customer. (Click on 'Reviews' as proof.)

This shop does NO RESIZING, but most rings CAN be resized by your local jeweler, a silver smith or repair shop, and on Silver the price is usually nominal.

Natural, semi-precious, and precious gemstones, as well as Swarovski Crystals, are used to create many of the jewelry pieces you will find here. Unfortunately, the photography, does not always give a good representation of the shimmering colors, sparkle, and fire in the stones.

The clay sculptures, whether jewelry, dolls, or ornaments are unique, (OOAK,) one of a kind, pieces and cannot be exactly duplicated, nor will be, due to extensive time spent creating them. Nor can any hand crafted item be duplicated, Exactly. Each will have it's own little intricacies.

Many of my creations have been sold in Boutiques, Gift Shops and Art Galeries in New York and throughout the Tampa Bay Area for much higher prices than you will find here. So do check in often, as I am continually adding more pieces, (and you never know what you might find.) Not all items in the shop are hand made by me, many have been purchased, through the years, and now have acquired the status if Vintage, or Antique.

All items purchased will be promptly shipped, via USPS, (usually within 24 hours,) tastefully, presented in a gift box, and insured, (by ETSY's Insurance Carrier,) to prevent any unexpected loss, or damage en route, while still within US borders.

Please be aware that once your item enters your country, it can possibly be delayed by Customs, which I have NO control over. If you feel the delay is unreasonable, you can request the Customs numbers from me, and take it up with your local post office. They can contact customs, electronically, in front of you, if you go there, and that usually speeds up the process considerably. Mail can take from 2 to 6 weeks to reach some countries, depending on distance, according to the USPS, and then has to go through customs, and then travel to your local post office. Customs numbers are now sometimes used for tracking as well, which you can usually do from Easy. If you need help finding tracking on Etsy, please contact me through the shop, and I will assist you.

Please note that this shop has had no issues regarding delays, except when caused by customs, during heavy traffic, (Holidays,) which we have no control over. So, please place your order early for special occasions.

PLEASE ADDRESS ANY ISSUES, thru contact with me, (thru the shop,) rather than e-mail, so that they can be addressed quickly, and rather than leaving negative feedback.

Also, please allow adaquate delivery time, (before panicking.) In most cases, you can expect to receive your order within 3 to 5 business days in the US,(unless there are bad weather conditions, such as Huge Fires, Blizzards, Hurricanes, Volcano Eruptions, Major Earth Quakes, etc.,) which could delay the mail. So, please don't wait until the last minute to order a gift for a special occasion, (such as Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day, etc.) unless you aren't real concerned about arrival time. Thank you for any consideration you may find it in your heart to bestow.

About

Grandma's Rocks

I started beading gemstones, making necklaces and bracelets, after breaking my wrist, as therapy to bring back the dexterity in my fingers. After I went back to my job, I continued, as a hobby, just for the joy of it.

After I found out about etsy, I opened this shop, to sell what I had made, along with pieces I had collected through the years. I also put up for sale prints of my paintings, sculpted dolls, vintage toys, & ceramic art.

Then I lost my job, and after a year of trying to get rehired, along with millions of other people, I decided to go for broke. I had just turned 60 and found out I could use my 401k money, and spent every penny of it on new supplies, and awesome vintage finds to sell in my shop.

And since pictures speak louder than words, I'll show you a few.

    New Grandma of four beautiful boys, what a joy. I've been drawing, painting, sculpting, crafting, all my life, sometimes as a hobby, sometimes a business. And collecting jewelry for just as long. I've been making it for a few years, and love it.

Shop policies

Last updated on November 14, 2014
Welcome to my little shop of Hand Created Gifts and Vintage Treasures. I do appologize for the poor representation of some of the items. I am working on my digital photography, and editing skills, but I can assure you that the actual items are so much more colorful, vibrant, sparkly, and beautiful than they appear here, that you will surely be quite pleased with your purchase.

Happy Shopping !

COUPON Codes MUST be used at checkout to receive Extra Discounts, no exceptions.
Shipping
Your item will be mailed to you (via the USPS), within 24 hours, or 2 business days, first class, insured, so (in most cases) should arrive at your door, within 2 to 7 business days (in the USA..)

International orders may experience a slight delay with customs, however, so please allow sufficient time for delivery when odering, anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks, is customary, depending on your location and volume of mail, (esp. at Christmas.) Customs numbers will be provided at your request, incase you need them to retrieve your items from your post office. We do not purchase insurance on International orders due to the excessive cost, (and it only covers items while still in this country.) As we have no control over parcels, once they have left our borders, International orders are at your own risk, however please note, we have had no mishaps on any international orders, to date. Go figure !?!
Refunds and Exchanges
If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, please notify the shop immediately, (thru the shop, not e-mail or feedback ,) and we will certainly try to rectify the situation. If any item should get lost, or be recieved damaged, (as every precaution has been taken to prevent this), you will have to provide proof, for the insurance co., and an insurance claim will be processed. Every item, (over $15.00,) purchased in the US is now mailed, first class, Insured, thru the USPS. All sales are final in November and December, as 90% of annual income is made in these two months, due to holiday shopping. We do not issue refunds for buyers remorse, change of heart, or whatever. So keep in mind, you buy it, you own it, (at least until you gift it-then somebody else owns it.) All Vintage and Antique items are Non Refundable. If you have any reservations about an item, please contact us thru the shop, with inquiries, before purchasing it, (especially during the holiday seasons.)

Thank you for your consideration, and happy shopping !
Additional policies and FAQs
Please give precise information as to where your item should be sent. If you would like it sent to someone as a gift, please make sure address AND zip code is accurate, to avoid postal problems, delays, or loss, and if you would like a little note to the recepient put inside, just indicate this at time of purchase, in the space provided, at checkout. If you need tracking numbers, just contact the shop, (thru the shop mail, not e-mail.) Customs numbers will be provided on International orders, upon request, if needed to track down your order, (which is rarely necessary.) This Shop does not purchase USPS insurance on International orders, as the cost is excessive, and the insurance won't cover items after they leave our borders.
If you want to return an item, and have been given instructions to do so, prior to sending it back, (there may be an automatic 10% reduction in your refund, at our discretion.) If the item is returned damaged in any way, the refund will be reduced accordingly.
All items are inspected before being mailed out, so if there are any flaws, we will be aware of it, (and if visable, it will be noted in the listing.) Again, all antique and vintage items are NR, Non Refundable.

Serious buyers only, please.
