1 out of 5 stars

Very disappointed with seller. took 5 weeks to arrive. Paid 61.00 for this bangle, had it engraved. when I finally did get it, the back side was all scratched and scuffed. I contacted the seller, her response: the opposite side won't be perfect because each letter is hammered into the metal. I'm happy to send you some polishing pads, or you are welcome to send it back to me and I can try to buff them out. I was not going to send it back and wait forever to get it pack. I agreed to her sending me the polishing pads of which I Never received them! If you order from this seller, be prepared to wait at least 5 weeks get it and expect scratches and scuffs. And she overcharges for shipping. Pd 6.00 for shipping and ships it 1st class and not priority. I buy on esty & this is my first to leave negative feedback & well deserved!

Hi Bambi, I'm sorry to see this feedback and that we weren't able to come to a resolution. I don't send items out that I wouldn't wear myself, but I'm sorry the finish wasn't acceptable to you. This is a favorite item and I've had nothing but positive feedback on this piece. I offered polishing pads, I offered to buff the item and get it returned to you within a few days, and you declined. My final message, which went unanswered, asked what I could do (anything) to make you happy with the purchase. I got no response. I'm not sure what else I can do, as a seller, to make you happy. Again, I'm very sorry you weren't happy with your purchase and I did my very best to remedy the situation, as I would do for any of my customers. Wishing you all the best. Danielle

About

Hand Stamped, Handmade Jewelry and Gifts with Heirloom Potential

So honored to have been featured by Etsy in the "Quit Your Day Job" series. I've learned so much from the amazing artisans featured in the past. It is my pleasure and such an incredible honor to be able to return the favor.

The jewelry creations of River Valley Designs reflect a minimalist aesthetic but just as strongly they speak to the heart. Whether it’s a Mom necklace for her or a monogrammed tie tack for him, clean lines and classic forms with a lighthearted touch define owner-designer Danielle Watt’s bespoke line. But look closely and see painstakingly applied, hand-stamped sentiments that express something singular about the wearer. Watt meticulously handcrafts her designs from sterling silver using a range of metalworking techniques. Her joy is capturing the wearer’s unique story with her hand-stamping tools to create a piece of heirloom quality jewelry that will be worn today and treasured tomorrow.

In addition to catering to private customers, River Valley Designs jewelry is a popular choice for inclusion in celebrity swag bags and has been gifted to, among others, Amanda Seyfried, Mila Kunis and singer Jordin Sparks, who was photographed in September 2012 wearing a River Valley Designs bracelet as she received her Power of Youth Award. Also in 2012, the company’s custom-designed sterling silver guitar pick pendants, which sport the adage, “Where Words Fail, Music Speaks,” were part of the official gift bag/lounge for the 46th annual CMA Awards.

Each River Valley Designs piece is custom made to client specifications. Customers can learn about the company, check out available designs and place orders at www.rivervalleyjewelry.etsy.com.

Danielle Watt is a resident of Shadyside, Ohio and has been creating jewelry since 2009. When not busy at the jeweler’s bench, Danielle enjoys spending time with her son. As a Registered Veterinary Technician she also donates time to Animal Balance, a non-profit organization that conducts large volume spay and neuter clinics in remote areas of the world.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 6, 2016
Hello!
Welcome to River Valley Design's Etsy shop! Home to unique, handcrafted jewelry items. Custom orders are very welcome, please convo me at any time. The following policies are subject to change at any time at the discretion of the shop owner.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
I accept payment via Paypal. If you don't have a Paypal account, don't be afraid to open one! Paypal does not share your payment information with me or any other party you purchase from using Paypal. Paypal offers many different ways to pay and a very safe, dependable method of payment when shopping online. You can also checkout via Paypal as a "guest", without opening an account.

Need help with the checkout process? See this helpful how-to from Etsy:
https://www.etsy.com/help/article/339

All purchases are final. Once your order is submitted, it cannot be canceled or changed, unless deemed appropriate by shop owner.

The payment method "other" is strictly reserved for local purchases. If you choose this payment option and proceed to check out, your order will not be started on, reserved, or shipped until payment is received in full. If payment is not received within 24 hours of the time of purchase, the purchase will be canceled.

Custom items will not be started on until payment is made in full. Items will not be reserved or shipped until payment is made in full.
Shipping
Most items in my shop are made-to-order and lead times vary depending on current order volume.

Custom items will be shipped upon completion. Please convo me for current turnaround time, or see my shop description directly under the shop's banner on the main shop page.

***PLEASE NOTE***
If your package is returned to me due to an error in address on your part or if the package is refused at the address you provided (this happens a LOT with work addresses, so please be sure the package can be accepted at your workplace) and returned to me, I'm happy to ship the item out to an alternate address, AFTER you have paid the shipping fee again. I'll contact you with a Paypal invoice for shipping and will get the package right out to you once the invoice is paid.

PLEASE be sure that the address you'd like the package shipped to is indicated in both Paypal and in the "shipped to" section at checkout. Please do not leave an alternate address in the "note to seller" portion as I use an automated program to print shipping labels. I am not responsible for missent packages if the correct shipping address is not indicated in those two places.

Unless otherwise requested, all domestic orders will be shipped USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation from Ohio, which takes 3-5 days for arrival within the United States. Priority mail is a great shipping option (2-3 days) and I can quickly upgrade the shipping price for a listing. Please contact me before purchase so I can upgrade the shipping option for you.

I happily ship internationally! I love my international customers! The International shipping included in the listings is for first class. THE USPS DOES NOT QUOTE A DELIVERY ESTIMATE FOR FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. It can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks to most locations worldwide. If you need a faster shipping option, please convo me for options. I am not responsible for any additional customs or duties fees that may be incurred upon the packages entry to your country. I fill out customs forms properly and accurately, I will not falsify a customs form.

I take great care in shipping every item. To keep items clean, dry, and safe, they will be bagged, placed inside a cotton-lined gift box, then wrapped with bubble wrap. If the item is a gift, just remember that the item is in a small ziploc baggie within the box. You may want to take the item out of the bag before giving.

I try to stay as "green" as possible when packaging items. I will never use unclean packing materials, I only re-use "like new" packing. However, your gift packaging is all brand new as is the envelope your item will arrive in. If you prefer brand new bubble wrap or packing, simply let me know at check out.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns or exchanges in the amount of the price of the item (less shipping) will be granted in cases of mistakes on my part or damage during shipping, You must contact me within 14 days of shipment (from me to you) for a refund or exchange to be considered.

Replacements will be granted at shop owner's discretion WITHIN 30 DAYS of the day your received your item.

If an item is lost in the mail, and proven to be non-delivered via Delivery Confirmation, I will happily replace the item at no cost to you.

No refunds or exchanges on custom orders.

Refund or exchange will be granted once the original item is returned to me, packaged similarly to how you received it.

If you have any issues with any piece but the issue isn't addressed here, please always feel free to convo me so we can work together to fix the issue. Overall, I want my customers to feel comfortable purchasing from me and I want them to be happy with their purchase! :)
Additional policies and FAQs
