Victoria Allison Jewelry- Bridal & Personalized Jewelry
VictoriaCampAllison's Shop Policies
Welcome to the online store for Victoria Allison Jewelry! (Formerly Victoria Camp Designs.) I create beautiful handmade artisan jewelry, for everyday and bridal/special occasion! I have been creating since I was a little girl, and love making one of a kind pieces. My favorite materials to design with are vintage brooches and glass beads, maps and atlases, vintage lockets, freshwater pearls, and polymer clay. All of my clay items are formed by hand without the use of molds, and everything I make is created in a smoke-free (pet friendly) environment. I strive to use vintage components whenever possible.
Your purchase will be sent in a gift box for you or your recipient to enjoy, and shipped in a biodegradable bubble mailer. Additional shipping information can be found below on this page.

Import duties and taxes are NOT included in the item price or shipping charges and are determined by your individual country. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing an item, as well as to check your country's shipping restrictions. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility, and are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – please do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. I do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as gifts - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.

Jewelry care and storage: To prolong the life of your jewelry, a good rule of thumb is "last on, first off." This means that your jewelry should be the last thing you put on after you get dressed and ready for the day, and the first thing you remove before you undress at the end of the day. This is to help prevent your jewelry from catching on the fabric of your clothing and to protect it from absorbing chemicals as you get ready for your day. Perfume, hair spray, etc, should all be applied before you put on your jewelry. Freshwater pearls are porous and thus are particularly susceptible to damage from such chemicals.
Sterling silver will naturally tarnish (oxidize) over time, when exposed to the air. If your sterling silver jewelry contains gemstones or freshwater pearls, it is advised to use a silver polishing clothing to clean it. Jewelry that is composed entirely of sterling silver can be cleaned with silver polishing paste. You may also take your jewelry to your local jeweler for cleaning.
Polymer clay pieces can be cleaned by mixing a little bit of clear hand or dish soap onto a damp cloth. Gently rub the soiled area in a circular motion, wipe off the residue, and pat dry.
Please take care to keep your jewelry dry. Do not swim, bathe, etc while wearing your jewelry (especially the map and constellation pieces.)
