The pendant was even lovelier than in the photo and the stone is beautifully cut and polished. We are very happy with it.
If it says 'new', all parts in the item are new.
If it says 'handcrafted vintage', some parts may be from older items. I ONLY use older items in good shape, and ONLY items that cannot be restored to their original condition. If you love true vintage, unaltered and unrestored, please visit my other shop, RareBeauty.
If it says, "Restored", it is a vintage piece that has been researched and, basically, fixed to be as it was originally. It will have been restored with original parts, as much as possible, original colors, etc.
No items in this shop have missing parts or stones. Everything in this shop is ready to use when purchased. If you wish to see vintage or new artistic supplies, craft lots and kits, please see our RareBeautySupplies shop on Etsy.
Any items that are toys or are labeled for children are NOT meant for children under three unless it is specifically stated in the listing. This is due to the fact that the items may cause a choking hazard in a younger child.
If an item has an age range on it, it does NOT mean that you should get it if your child does not fall in that age range- the age range is for SAFETY, and has nothing to do with intelligence of the child. Questions? Please ask- safety is our concern!
Please visit all six RareBeauty shops on Etsy. If you do not see the tan RareBeauty logo, it is not RareBeauty!

Insurance: Insurance is not included in any shipping unless stated in the listing. Insurance can be added to most items if it is not already included.

Insurance is required on ALL expensive items, and for most expensive international shipments. It is expensive. In certain cases, we will use registered mail.

We have no control over the USPS policies, and as they only refund the insurance amount to the person who files the claim, and you must have the package to file the claim, this is out of our control. Shipping is not refundable. If purchaser wishes RareBeauty to file the claim, purchaser must return package and contents at their own expense. Filing a claim is no guarantee that there will be a refund. We will refund whatever is refunded to us. However, we do pack exceedingly well.
