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 not guaranteed to be exact.

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 of 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.

Place any orders for special occasions early during heavy traffic, (Holidays,) which can delay delivery. Also, be aware that bad weather conditions can also delay delivery.

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.

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 April 13, 2018
Welcome to my little shop of Hand Crafted Gifts and Vintage Treasures. Please be aware that since the photos are so highly magnified, that what might look like an imperfection in the photo is usually not visible by the naked eye, and natural gemstones do sometimes have inclusions, (i.e. Emeralds, moonstones, etc.,) which should be expected when they are grown from crystals by Mother Nature, (over billions of years,) and not in a sterile laboratory. Most of my gemstones come from India and Thailand, which is why I am able to keep prices of finished pieces priced as low as possible, and therefore affordable to most people in the US. However, Gold and Sterling Silver prices are constantly rising, as are prices of the most desired gemstones, so please don't convo me asking me if the price of an item is, 'the best I can do,' because IT IS. This is not just a hobby, it's how I 'make a living,' and a meager one at that. And, as I am only human, I do not have limitless patience. I work long hours, and am not exactly a 'Spring Chicken,' anymore, 'so to speak,' and I don't try to deceive people for profit. That's not a good way to STAY in business. So, if I know a gemstone to be lab created, (which a very few are,) it will be noted in the listing.

Happy Shopping !

Payment
We accept direct payment with credit card, as well as Paypal, and prior to Christmas, a layaway plan can be set up.
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 5 business days (in the USA.) If you are worried about weather conditions slowing down the mail because you are a 'last minute' shopper, there are also shipping upgrades available at checkout.

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 are now the same as tracking numbers, and you can track your items from your Etsy acct., since I use Etsy to print all shipping labels. If you need assistance finding tracking, just let me know. We also have insurance to cover International orders, as well, now, (but keep in mind, that the recovery process can take up to 8 weeks.)
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 the address AND Zip Code is accurate, to avoid postal problems, delays, or loss, and if you would like a little note to the recipient put inside, just indicate this at time of purchase, in the space provided, at checkout. If you want to track your items, it is now available from your account. If you don't know how to access it, let me know, and I will guide you to it. Just contact the shop, (thru the shop mail, not e-mail.) On International orders, customs numbers are now the same as tracking numbers, which can be accessed from your account.

Also, on international orders, please note, that any import taxes, or duties on your end are your responsibility.

If you have been given permission to return an item, for exchange or refund, I will give you instructions on how to send it back. If you return an item after it has been damaged by you, kept for longer than the allowed time, (to wear for the holidays, etc.) or without authorization, it will be sent back to you, and not refunded. No Partial refunds are given if you want to keep the item. And you will Not be refunded for return shipping costs, even if you are authorized to make a return. However, if you paid for shipping when you purchased it, that might be refunded, (at my discretion.) I know all the tricks, and this isn't JTV, (but incase you didn't know, even tho they give you a return shipping label with your purchase, they charge your credit card $8.00 if you use it.) Nothing is FREE in This world. And scammers are abundant on the internet.

Again, all Antique and Vintage items are NR, (Not Refundable,) but can be exchanged, when authorization is given.

Honest buyers only, please.
