Exquisite Vintage Jewels, Gifts and Divine Engagement Rings

There is a saying that goes ... Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life. Its true. I love what I do passionately and I'm excited to go to work at Sweet Heirloom Vintage every single day and usually well into the night.

I'm inspired by the sheer delight and serendipity of sourcing and curating Sweet Heirloom Vintage. Inspiration comes from every exquisite little detail, every captivating interaction with light and every trace of the artisan who crafted the piece decades or a century ago.

I love taking images in the soft setting sunlight which gently caresses vintage gold and coaxes it into a luminous radiant living thing. Nothing captures the antique charm of a vintage cut diamond like the soft light. The big facets on vintage diamonds come to life and blast rainbow shards of colour when they are illuminated by warm setting sunlight.

A woman can fall in love with a new engagement ring and 100 years later another woman can fall in love with the very same ring that is now antique. The odds are a million to one but it happens every day at Sweet Heirloom Vintage. I love my job!

Frequently asked questions

ARE VINTAGE / ANTIQUE PIECES RIGHT FOR YOU?

Please be aware that all items in my Etsy store are pre-loved and have been used and worn by previous owners. As such they will show varying degrees of wear commensurate with age. Please view images, use the image 'zoom' tool and carefully read listings to assess if the item condition is right for you. No guarantee of future longevity is given.

Items are one of a kind and genuine vintage/antiques, not new replicas. Please ask any questions prior to purchase.

3. Items purchased on Lay-away / Payment plans do NOT qualify for a full refund. A 20% administration fee will be deducted from the refund price.

RESIZING

Most rings can be easily resized by your local jeweller or I am happy to have the ring resized for you (convo me for a quote), if you know your EXACT size. It is lovely to have your ring arrive ready to wear!

Sorry NO REFUNDS on resized rings.

LAW-AWAY / PAYMENT PLANS

We absolutely offer payment plans without interest! 3 equal and consecutive monthly payments with the first payment made as a deposit.

If you are unable to make a payment on time, please contact us. If we do not receive a message from you within 7 days or if the plan is cancelled, a 20% fee will be charged. This fee covers our time, administration costs, non-refundable processing & listing fees and the item being unavailable to purchase by others during the plan time.

GIFT WRAPPING AND PACKAGING

All items are quality boxed and beautifully gift wrapped.

We use recycled packaging as much as possible (bubble wrap, boxes, ribbon etc) as we strive to be as environmentally responsible as possible.

SHIPPING

All items are carefully wrapped and sent using express shipping. Once shipped, I cannot be responsible for delays caused by circumstances beyond my control ~ delays by shipping companies, customs, weather conditions, labour strikes etc.
