Rubanesque's Shop Announcement

Inside a dusty cardboard box, nestled forgotten treasures, hidden for years in a drawer in my grandfathers office in St. Etienne. A selection of precious ribbons from his family’s silk factory, Julien Faure, in St. Etienne, France.

Gifted to me, I have been lovingly crafting one-off (and truly so as no other piece of identical ribbon exists) handmade jewellery, combining these turn-of-the-century ribbons, heavily laden with gold thread and hand trimmed silk velvet, with Swarovski crystals embellishments to bring you luxe, contemporary pieces with a touch of old school glamour.

btw, say hi on my personal blog, http://www.rubanesque.com and I'm on instagram too:

Welcome

Welcome to Rubanesque!

Inside a dusty cardboard box, nestled forgotten treasures, hidden for years in a drawer in my grandfathers office in St. Etienne. A selection of precious ribbons from his family’s silk factory just outside of Lyon, France. Gifted to me, I have been lovingly crafting one-off (and truly so as no other piece of identical ribbon exists) handmade jewellery cuffs, combining these turn-of-the-century ribbons, heavily laden with gold thread and hand trimmed silk velvet, with Swarovski crystals embellishments to bring you luxe, contemporary pieces with a touch of old school glamour

Payment

Hi there,

I prefer payment via Paypal but do remember that you don't necessarily need a paypal account to send payment via Paypal, a credit card or debit card will suffice.

Happy shopping!

Shipping

I will be posting with La Poste in a padded envelope, gift wrapped.

If you wish to pay an additional fee to have your package insured and traceable please convo me and I can set up a special shipping profile for you.

Please note: All packages sent outside of the European Union may be subject to custom duty and this is the responsibility of the buyer to cover these costs should they arise.

Packages to the U.S. and Canada can take 8-15 working days to be delivered depending on heavy traffic times such as holidays, Christmas etc.

Refunds and Exchanges

I am happy to accept refunds in the case that there is a major problem with the item outside of the norm. Refunds in such cases will be for cost of item and not inclusive of shipping, the buyer will be responsible for return shipping costs.

Additional Policies and FAQs

As these creations are made from antique materials, many of which are over 100 years old, the ribbons are antique and delicate and they necessitate care as would any heirloom antique. The jewellery is not for example waterproof and as per any antique fabric it is recommended you shelter from direct sunlight when not wearing. Any imperfections that may have occurred through the years only add to its individuality.
