All vintage listings are researched to the best of my ability. If you have a question about the history of one of my vintage items, let me know. I'd love to find the additional info you are looking for.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I use USPS and delivery usually takes 2-5 days within the US. Packages weighing over 13 ounces are shipped first class and with delivery confirmation. I do not request insurance in order to keep your shipping cost down. However, I am willing to ship your item in any manner that you desire. If you would like insurance - simply send me a message and I will modify the listing for the additional fee.
International shipping is available. USPS International Mail can take up to 2-3 weeks, depending on the country of destination. Delivery time may take longer during the holiday period and unfortunately I'm not responsible for delays. I would appreciate your understanding and patience.
Please, double-check if the addresses you have on your Etsy account and PayPal are correct when you submit your payment. If a package is returned to me marked undeliverable, I will send you a photo of the package postage noting USPS made several attempts to deliver. Packages will be resent to the buyer when correct address information is confirmed by message. International orders will be refunded, minus shipping, when returned unclaimed.
Purchases are subject to policies of shipping address country. If your country does not allow import of a certain item (ex. vintage clothing in other than new condition) or requires insurance, I will either refund your purchase or create an invoice for the cost difference, according to our communication and the restriction in question. Shipping overages over $3.00 will be refunded
I love working with the worldwide community!

Vintage clothing should be worn and laundered with consideration to it's age. When measuring, allow for ease of movement and comfort. Vintage clothing is often cut to be more form fitting than modern clothing. To ensure a good fit, compare measurements to a similar garment you own that fits you well. If you do not own a similar garment, be sure to measure yourself using a dressmaker's tape measure over the undergarments you plan to wear with the vintage item, around the fullest parts of your bust and hips, and at your natural waistline.
I am happy to answer any questions regarding Ravishing Ruby Vintage listings.

Take care not to scratch, bend, and specially HEAT this jewelry . It's durable and waterproof, but should be kept away from heat sources.
Try to protect jewelry from extreme temperatures, shower, swimming pools, salt water, and SPECIALLY STORAGE IN PROLONGED SUNLIGHT. Remove rings when working with your hands, such as performing household tasks, gardening and using abrasive particles.
I use some natural materials and some of them may have imperfections .
It's best not to expose these pieces to chemicals or alcohol-based products such as perfume, hairspray, household cleaners or nail polish remover. If required clean with mild soap and water, and buff with a soft cloth.
As you may have noticed, after months of everyday wearing the metal pieces on every jewelry start to lose their luster. It happens with all types of jewelry as it caused by reaction with other metals and humidity. To avoid this I spray ALL my silver plated pieces with a special ANTI-TARNISH AGENT that will keep your jewelry shiny and protect it from future tarnishing for a long time. However if it happened, you can clean metal parts by using professional cleaners or simple paste made with water and toothpaste or baking soda.
Try to separate your jewelry to avoid nicks and scrapes.
I strive to list items in the best condition, but most items have been worn and loved by a previous owner. As such, some signs of wear and age are to be expected. Any damage, stains or imperfections are noted to the best of my knowledge. Some items may have a musty scent to them.
Please keep in mind that all computer monitors present colors differently, there may a slight difference as a result.
We are a pet and smoke free business. All items are cleaned properly and prepared with respect to the material integrity.
