A powerful custom signet ring based on one woman’s story of divorce. A hidden horse on the inside of the ring symbolizes strength, and you can get whatever stone in the front is most meaningful for you.
Can you get much more regal than an antique gentlemen’s stick pin? 18k gold and ruby. Would make a fabulous gift for your partner or best man.
Whether to honor a mother, father, sibling, or even fur baby, our remembrance pieces will keep your beloved close to your heart. A custom initial charm hangs behind a forget me not flower wax seal charm.

About

Jewelry is a Powerful Storyteller

Stacey Fay Designs is founded on the idea that jewelry is powerful - it tells the story of the past, present and future, and helps us connect to our deepest hopes and dreams. Vintage and antique jewelry, in particular, holds the passions, love and energy of all the lives that once wore it, and now it's brought into this lifetime to be given another chance. There is nothing more special.

How did my own journey start? With some sea turtles, birds and warm weather in Costa Rica.

In my 20's I lived in Costa Rica for six months tagging sea turtles and birds for a conservation organization. While there, I became good friends with jewelers who sold their wares to tourists in the small village where I lived. Day in and day out I would watch them make beautiful macrame and sterling silver jewelry, and see them interact with customers. Occasionally they would teach me a few lessons. Needless to say, I was hooked. When I returned to the states, I started simple and small, with beaded jewelry. I adored the tactile sensation of making it, the ability to bring beauty into the world, and the smile on customers' faces when they wore my creations. I first opened my Etsy store in 2006, with the dream of selling to the wider world.

That chapter, however, was not meant to be. Soon after Costa Rica, I started full time at a busy nonprofit, and only a few years later lost my sister suddenly and devastatingly. I had neither the energy nor the passion to keep going with the business, and I never did bring the Etsy shop to life.

Fast forward to a few years ago, when loss again entered my life, this time with my mother. This grief brought many emotions full circle, and I felt a fire and determination to revisit the jewelry. I knew that the jewelry represented a powerful way to tell my own story - in all its ups and downs and complexities - and help others tap into their own. I also had the deep and unshakable recognition that life is very short, and too short not to live out your dreams.

Without much experience but with a determination to learn, I took classes, read countless books, and worked endless hours honing my craft. In 2015 my Etsy shop went live, and now in 2017, I am deepening my knowledge as a student at the Gemological Institute of America, pursuing my Graduate Gemologist degree .

I search far and wide across the world for the jewelry in the shop, and curate unique and interesting pieces. Each tells its own story and has its own history, from antique Victorian jewelry, to vintage engagement rings, to fun pieces from the 70's. It gives me great joy to breathe new life into jewelry, and bring these special pieces into the lives of my customers.

Additional policies and FAQs
∞ JEWELRY CONCIERGE ∞
We offer jewelry concierge services; if you're seeking a particular antique or vintage jewel for yourself or as a gift, please reach out to us at info [!at] staceyfaydesigns.com and we can get started with the search.

∞ RESIZING ∞
We do offer jewelry resizing for most rings - please contact us prior to purchase. Resizing cost is $35.

∞ JEWELRY CARE ∞
Any jewelry, whether new or vintage, requires care. Jewelry should always be the first thing you take off at night and the last thing you put on in the morning, and remove jewelry when showering, exercising, sleeping, hand washing, or using moisturizer or other chemicals.

For jewelry you wear frequently, particularly rings, we recommend taking them into your local jeweler every six months to a year for inspection. This helps ensure that prongs and gems are secure and not at risk of damage or loss. This is true even if you purchase an item in perfect condition, as jewelry wears down over time.

We guarantee that items are as described, but we do not guarantee they won't need maintenance or repair due to use and wear after purchase. These are vintage and antique pieces which have had a long history, and which require care. Enjoy your jewelry and don't be fearful to wear it, just be mindful with its care.

∞ PRELOVED ∞
The items in our shop are estate, vintage and antiques (except for any handmade antique style pieces such as the wax seal pendants), and as such, each has its own character and imperfections, and are not new pieces. We always fully describe condition and imperfections in our listings so that you have the information you need when making a purchase. Our jewelry has many tales to tell and a long history, making for truly unique and one-of-a-kind additions to your wardrobe.

∞ DIAMOND & JEWELRY ESTIMATIONS∞

For most of the diamond pieces in the shop, the diamonds are an older cut, such as old mine cut or European cut. These diamonds have a different shape than modern brilliant cut diamonds - deeper culets, off-round shapes and higher tables - so the exact weight of these older diamonds is difficult to determine using modern formulas unless you remove the stone from the piece. Thus weights given for diamonds in the shop are an estimation/approximate.

The history and dating of pieces in the shop is an estimation based on all the evidence we can gather - type of stone, metal, details, maker's marks, etc. - and we also get outside expert input consistently. We do our best to understand, and articulate to you, the wonderful history of each of our pieces.

∞ Appraisals∞

We do not offer appraisal information for items in our shop unless specifically stated in the listing. Typically, appraisals are only done for items in the shop over $2,000. Please do see our reviews - you'll see many people have purchased diamonds and more expensive jewelry from us, and all are very happy!
