Announcement   A note to all of my extraordinary and awesome customers - Every day when I go read the amazing reviews you leave me, I always just feel SO grateful. You all make my heart happy. Thank you <3 You are ALL so appreciated.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS - The US Post office significantly raised postal rates on 1/17/16. Please take note that my shipping rates have changed to reflect this increase.

I have thousands of vintage loose rhinestones which are unused/new from old stock that I am so happy to offer the artisans of Etsy. I'm glad to have found a place where I can cater to a community who can use my beautiful baubles for their creative endeavors - I have an especially amazing Swarovski rhinestone inventory for those of you who repair vintage jewelry, create your own masterpieces, and those who work with epoxy and polymer clay. In addition to all of the loose rhinestones I have here I also have added brass findings as well as stones in settings to my sale inventory.

Most of the rhinestones I have up for sale are genuinely vintage. They are surplus stock from closed costume jewelry factories out east. Most of them have come to me in their original packages - unopened since the 1950's and 1960's. I take these packages and put together useful lots in various groupings. Whether it is by color, shape, size, or type, each lot is carefully assembled in my wee workspace at home.

There is something... extraordinary about loosening the ties on an old box and seeing the layers of treasure that were carefully packed between delicate pieces of tissue by someone long ago. I absolutely love vintage glass, jewelry, and findings and what I do here is a labor of love.

I do have a discount coupon for orders over $100

For orders over $100 get 10% off with coupon code MOON100

Coupons apply to merchandise only - not to shipping costs. Also there are a few large, bulk lots in my store that are already discounted to the max with notes that say they are not eligible for coupon codes.

If I have created a custom order for you, please ask before applying a coupon code as I may have already discounted your item when it was listed.

Please note, the stones and items that I sell are primarily vintage. They are unused vintage stock but they are not brand new. While many of them do look brand new, some of them will undoubtedly show the signs of being vintage stones. My lots often contain a variety of stones from fire polished, demi-fin, and ttc to moonstones, opaques, swarovski and machine cut stones.

I also have a shop under the name moonbubbles. http://www.etsy.com/shop/moonbubbles There you can find my one of a kind designed creations inspired by the glamorous rhinestone jewelry era.

Also please take a peek at my about page :)

Also I just created a facebook page for Moonspheres! Please take the time to check it out or give it a like or a share. Soon I will be offering some cool stuff like discounts and/or raffles and such!

When you look at the photos in my listings, please take the time to click and zoom in on them and also to carefully read the entire listing. I try to provide all the necessary information there and I take very detailed photos of my items so that you can get a good idea of the quality, color, size, etc. of the items you are interested in. Just keep in mind that monitor settings may cause a slight variance in color from my camera to your computer.

I work very hard on this business but I'm a one woman show and sometimes get very, very busy. Occasionally I make mistakes (can you believe it? lol) and so I ask that if I do that you are patient and communicate with me so that we can resolve any issue and also so you can be 110 percent happy with your purchase as that is my goal. I truly want my customers to be thrilled with their entire experience with me.

So much sparkly goodness all in one place!
When I put this latest DIY lot together I focused on making it all inclusive. I wanted everything someone would need to start creating right away so I added stringing wire, jewelry wire, and even adhesive. heart

About

Oh how I love vintage glass and goodies!

I've always loved garage sales and estate sales since I can remember. My parents were antique collectors for more than 50 years and some of my earliest and best memories are from accompanying them on their treasure hunts. I remember flea markets and antique shops as being fun, magical places and most importantly, I was spending time with my momma and daddy on their quests.

About fifteen years ago I began to do my own hunting. I would go to various garage and estate sales to see what treasures I could find and then sell online to those who were looking for them. I found that vintage jewelry was my favorite and my desire to buy the broken (I would call them toothless) pieces without stones just to bring them back to life was a passion.

It was while hunting for just the right rhinestones that I had an epiphany. I enjoyed buying the rhinestones so much that I figured I may as well buy those to sell them too! (My husband jokingly tells me that I sell them so I can buy more!)

My first truly huge purchase was an absolute delight. I bought close to half a ton of vintage glass and my living room at the time was filled from stem to stern with boxes and boxes of vintage, glass goodness.

I have said it so many times... there is something so extraordinary about opening a neatly tied box and bringing those stones out into the light of day again after being in the dark for sometimes as long as 70 years.

Now I can send these little goodies on their way for others to repair their "toothless" jewelry, create their own art, or a myriad other things. - Creating things is a deep part of who I am... I love to bring art into the world whether it be with a paintbrush, guitar, piano, pen, or the bits of sparkly goodness in my inventory and so being able to share these little seeds here with others to cultivate into their own art is especially rewarding.

Over the past 10 years I've been also creating jewelry myself - from vintage flavored rhinestone pieces to clay and even crocheted and beaded designs, I love using my vintage findings, stones, and other more contemporary stuff to create! You can find the fruits of these endeavors in my other shop here on etsy called "Moonbubbles." http://www.etsy.com/shop/moonbubbles

I hope you enjoy your trek though my shop and that you find something that catches your eye and fuels your imagination to create.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 31, 2016
My policy is to provide you with unique, fine quality rhinestones, findings, and other beautiful baubles to fuel your fire to create.

Please note that I am a night owl. I am on Pacific Standard Time (GMT - 8.00) so if I don't respond to your questions right away in the morning or early afternoon don't fret - I'll answer them in the evenings. I always do my best to reply to any questions on the same day.

When you look at the photos in my listings, please take the time to click and zoom in on them and also to carefully read the entire listing. I try to provide all the necessary information there and I take very detailed photos of my items so that you can get a good idea of the quality, color, size, etc. of the items you are interested in. Just keep in mind that monitor settings may cause a slight variance in color from my camera to your computer.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay

  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
I accept paypal, credit cards (etsy checkout system) and money orders. I will also accept a check but will not ship until the check has cleared.

I prefer that payment is made at the time of purchase, however, I realize that with checks and money orders that's not the case.

If you place an order and wish to cancel it, I ask that you do so as soon as possible because sometimes ship within hours after a purchase is made. If i have already shipped your item and you wish to cancel your transaction, you will still be responsible for all shipping costs (including the cost to send the item(s) back to me).
Shipping
I do my best to ship as quickly as possible. In most cases I ship within 1-2 business days of purchase, however I've been known to take a little more time (and I've also been known to ship same day quite often). Usually if I will take longer to ship, I will email you to let you know.

If you want something shipped quickly, please convo me and let me know so that I can flag your order and get it mailed asap.

International items are shipped first class parcel unless you wish to pay for priority or express shipping. I use etsy's shipping feature and will profide insurance if you desire it.

I will give accurate customs descriptions and will not misname your items. For example if you purchased faux pearls I will not label them simply as "pearls." I will make sure that your customs official knows that what you are receiving is a craft supply and that it is not a real gem or pearl (unless of course that is what I have sold to you)

I will not fudge customs forms. I will report every item and its cost accurately.
Refunds and Exchanges
With many of my items, accepting returns and providing refunds is tricky business.

I have been taken several times by those who purchase a large lot, took out the few stones they needed, and then tried to return the lot to me saying it wasn't what they needed.

Because I sell large quantity lots with a variety of stones, I cannot know for sure if any stones are missing when the lot is returned to me. I like to believe that my customers are honest and I have been very fortunate, but my accepting returns and refunds will depend entirely on the item that you have purchased and the reason for your wanting a refund.

If you did not read the item discription or look at the photos (I provide large, detailed, accurate photos of my items) and wish to return them for something that is clearly stated in my description or shown in the photos, you may not be granted a refund. I believe it is the buyers responsibility to read the listing in its entirety and ask all questions before making their purchase. I worked very hard to provide excellent photographs and detailed and accurate descriptions so that you as the buyer can be aware of what exactly you are purchasing.

I usually only accept refunds if there was an error on my part or if the merchandise is damaged. If a refund is requested or needed it should be done in no more than 10 business days from purchase date or 5 business days from date of receipt.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in custom rhinestones orders, I am very happy to do my best to accomodate your wishes, however, only if it is cost effective to me - especially on a time invested level. If your custom order desire is for me to fish out 6 1.5mm stones out of a mix of thousands of stones and furthermore want them to be 6 different colors and expect to pay a few cents a stone, I am less likely to oblige you than if you are looking for something more substantial and worth the time and effort it takes for me to create your custom listing.

I'm not saying that you're not worth my time - but if something takes me 2 hours and the cost of the stones is $1.00, I just can't make that happen for you. I do hope you understand. :)
