About

Make your dream come true...

"Once upon a time a little girl loved to play with her mom's jewelry.
One Christmas, her parents gave her as a gift a slipcase full of beads, rhinestones and pendants to create small jewels for her beloved dolls.
Over the years, as the child grew, grew her passion for jewelry too...
Beads, resin, buttons, she was always looking for new techniques to learn and experiment!
The more her passion grew, the more she felt the need to share it with others, thanks also to the support of her family and her friends, who loved her creations... and thus was born "A Chic Fairytale"!
Because, after all, we are all princesses!"

"A Chic Fairytale " was born as a hobby, a little enchanted world where I could fully express my creativity and share it with you.
But now it has become something more ... it has allowed me to quit my daily job and to follow what has always been my dream, to become a silversmith: in fact, I'm taking classes of silversmithing because I feel that it's time to grow up and have the full creative control of the jewels I create!

In the next months you will see a lots of new products in my shop, so ... STAY TUNED! ♡

Shipping
►►►►► SHIPPING ADDRESS ◄◄◄◄◄

I ship to the Etsy address, so please be sure that the delivery address you selected at checkout is the one you want me to send it to!

IMPORTANT: Each address must indicate full name (name and surname), street number and zip code (where necessary).

I often find nicknames or no surname along with the shipping address, so please be sure to provide me your real and complete name, or I will not be able to ship your order and I will have to cancel the transaction if I get no answer from you while trying to know what your real name or correct address is (within 10 business days).

So please double check your address! I can't be responsible for any extra costs if the address you supply is incorrect.

►►►►► PROCESS TIME ◄◄◄◄◄

The current process time is 1-5 business days, even if I always do my best to ship orders asap.
All my creations are handmade by me using a multi-step process which needs at least 3 days before the piece is actually ready to be shipped (keep also in mind that errors during the making process can occur, making me need more time to re-make the piece) in case that the piece you purchased is not already made and ready to be shipped (in this case I ship within 1-3 business days).

►►►►► SHIPPING METHODS ◄◄◄◄◄

I ship my creations worldwide with "International Registered Mail" by Poste Italiane, which provides:
~ legal certification of shipment;
~ possibility to track the package through the tracking number provided at the time of shipment;
~ delivery only to the addressee or to a person appointed by them;
~ in case of absence, the package can be picked up at the post office indicated on the collection slip.

►►►►► DELIVERY TIME ◄◄◄◄◄

► International shipping from Italy usually takes about 15-30 business days: for business days is meant Monday to Friday, on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and public holidays mail is not handled and delivered.

► Please note that in particular times of the year, such as the Christmas season, the delivery could take longer due to the busy international postal systems.

► If you need an Express delivery, you can add these shipping upgrades to your order:
US and CANADA www.etsy.com/shop/AChicFairytale?search_query=united+states
EUROPEAN UNION www.etsy.com/shop/AChicFairytale?search_query=european+union
AUSTRALIA and NEW ZEALAND www.etsy.com/shop/AChicFairytale?search_query=australia

If you live in a country which is not among those mentioned above, please contact me to know the exact Express shipping costs.

►►►►► THINGS YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER ABOUT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING DELAYS ◄◄◄◄◄

► All international packages go through two customs - the buyer's and seller's

► Sometimes the package can be held up by customs while entering the destination country, resulting in delays which are completely out of my control: I am not able to do nothing to speed up delivery process, since once the parcel is shipped I have no part in its handling and delivery.
This is a rare occasion, but it can happen.

► IMPORTANT ◄
As said before, I have no part in handling and delivery process after the parcel is shipped, so I have to ask you to be objective and do not use the postal systems work as criteria to valuate your orders when writing reviews: you are supposed to give a feedback about my creations and on my process time, not on how long (for example) USPS or Royal Mail took to deliver the parcel to you after I shipped it.

► International packages are considered as lost by the postal system after 60 business days, domestic after 30 days

► If your purchase is late, don't panic: as I stated above delays on international deliveries are normal, especially during holiday season, and it's something that I can't control. Contact me if 30 business days has passed (so excluding Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays) and you did not received your order (but first ALWAYS remember to ask to your local postal office if they're holding a packet for you that they tried to deliver while you were not at home), and we'll see what to do.

►►►►► SHIPMENT NOTICES ◄◄◄◄◄

RUSSIA, BRAZIL AND CHILE
Due to operational difficulties reported by the postal authorities of the countries of destination, there may be delays in the delivery of shipments of International Correspondence.

MEXICO
Estimate delivery time for Mexico can take up to 2-3 months: from my experience all the parcels sent to Mexico needed a ridiculously long shipping time (2-3 months, once even 4 months), so in case you're from Mexico and decide to place the order, consider that it can take a really long time before the parcel is delivered to you.

INDIA AND SOUTH AFRICA:
Due to several problems with both postal system, parcels to India and South Africa are now shipped via insured EMS only.

►►►►► OTHER INFORMATIONS ABOUT SHIPMENT ◄◄◄◄◄

► Shipping costs include packaging and handling; I try to keep them as low as possible and I do not make any gain from.

► Please also note that any customs duties and taxes are the buyer's responsibility.

► With every order you will receive a discount coupon for your next purchase.

► Shipping is discounted for additional items, and on orders over €55 (about 63USD) is FREE!! (Once you've added an item to your cart, on the right, click "Apply shop coupon code" above "Item total" and write: 55FREES).

► On occasion I receive parcels returned to me as the address has been incomplete, refused or is incorrect. In the event of parcels being returned to me for any of these reasons I will contact you immediately here on Etsy to let you know.
I can resend the parcel, but you will need to pay for shipping again unless the wrongly addressed parcel was my fault - it is the customer's responsibility to ensure the address given is correct when placing the order.

► In case of parcels not collected from the post office, I'll be happy to refund the cost of the items but not the original shipping fee if the parcel is returned simply because it has not been collected from the Post Office by the recipient (in this case the refund will be issued only once I'll have received the package back).
Refunds and Exchanges
►►►►► PROBLEMS AND CONCERNS ABOUT YOUR ORDER ◄◄◄◄◄

► If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your order please contact me and I'll get back to you ASAP to work with you. Customer Service is very important to me and I want all my customers to be happy with their jewelry.
I always try to answer all messages ASAP (and always within 24 hours) but due to time differences around the world, sometimes I'm not able to respond straightaway.....rest assured though, I promise to get back to you ASAP.

► For any concerns regarding your order please contact me through Etsy conversations, since is much easier for me to find out your order (I usually answer asap).
Please note that email is not recommended since sometimes it may go directly to my SPAM box, and time of answer may be longer.
If there is any issue with your order, please let me know so I CAN TAKE CARE of it, before leaving a feedback.

►►►►► RETURN AN ITEM ◄◄◄◄◄

► If you want to return the item, it must be shipped within 7 business days from its receipt, and be returned unused and in its original packaging.
I will refund you as soon as I will receive it via the payment method used at the time of the purchase, minus the cost of shipping.

► The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs on returns, which must be made with a shipping method which provides a tracking number.

►Have you changed your mind about the color or finish of your jewelry and you want to change it? No problem!
Contact me within 7 business days from the receipt of your order and I'll give you the address to which return your order.
The new jewelry will be shipped as soon as I will receive the item to replace.
The buyer is responsible for all shipping costs on returns too.

►►►►► REFUNDS ◄◄◄◄◄

► No refunds or returns are taken on custom products after the product is crafted.

► No refunds are offered if the address supplied is incorrect, and I was not informed about it.

► I can offer a store credit or a partial refund in the event of severe damage during shipping. Please send me photos if such an unfortunate event occurs within 24 hours of delivery. I pack all of my creations very carefully to ensure they arrive safely!

► I am not responsible for damages occurred after that the jewels have been used.

► In case of parcel sent back to me because the recipient hasn't collected it in time from the post office, the buyer can choose between these 2 options:
~ a new shipping (in this case the buyer is responsible for the new shipping fees);
~ a refund for the price of the jewel (in this case the refund will be issued only once I'll receive the package back; the original shipping fees won't be refunded).
Additional policies and FAQs
► Most of the items are, on request, customizable.
Contact me before you make your purchase if you want to make changes to the objects, i'll make it just for you!!

►►►►► MATERIALS ◄◄◄◄◄

All the metals I use are primarily copper and brass alloys (nickel and lead free).

Brass is an alloy made of copper and zinc, not meant for long term wear: it may discolour when exposed to water/moisture.
If you notice that your jewel is becoming darker, don't worry, it is normal!
Due to it’s high copper content, it also can turn your skin colors if worn for long periods, when wet, or perspiring.

Copper is a pure metal (it does not contain any other metals, and it is perfect for those with allergies to nickel), and is antimicrobial.
It oxidizes and develops a patina quite nicely, but because of this, it can turn your skin green if worn for long periods of time, or when wet.
To avoid this, consider copper and brass jewelry as short-term wear only.
However, the stains on the skin can be removed easily with soap and water!

►►►►► TIPS TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW JEWEL ◄◄◄◄◄

~ avoid direct contact with water, such as shower, pool and sea: soaps, sea salt and chlorine could ruin the jewel;
~ avoid to wear it while doing sports: in some cases our skin releases acids through sweating that could ruin the jewel;
~ do not sleep while wearing it;
~ polish it from time to time with a small cloth to keep it shiny;
~ store it away from the sun, open air and humidity (a small sealed bag or a closed box will be perfect).

► It is preferable to contact me through the Etsy messaging system, since sometimes my personal mail service tends to filter unknown contacts as spam, and there is the chance that I might miss your message. Thank you!

► I will be glad to quote wholesale pricing for my products; just convo me for more information.

► I really appreciate when I receive photos of customers wearing my creations, so please feel free to send me pictures of you rocking your new jewelry here on Etsy or via Facebook www.facebook.com/AChicFairytale
You can also tag your photos with #achicfairytale on Instagram www.instagram.com/achicfairytale/ and I will be glad to share your photos!

Frequently asked questions

Necklaces Length

In most of the listings you can directly select the length you prefer.
In some cases, such as in listings with 3 necklaces, the standard length is stated in the description: if you prefer a different length, just leave me a note in the info box at checkout ("note for seller or achicfairytale") or send me a message here on Etsy.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions or if you need assistance!

Bracelets Length

In most of the listings you can directly select the length you prefer.
In some cases, such as in listings in which you can add the initials, the standard length is 17 cm: if you prefer a different length, just leave me a note in the info box at checkout ("note for seller or achicfairytale").

► Find out the right length ◄
Wrap a piece of paper around your wrist, cut it at the point where the two ends meet and measure it; add approx 1/2" to 1" to that number depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit (the more you add to your measured wrist size, the looser your bracelet will fit)... this is the size to order!
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions or if you need assistance!

Have you found the perfect gift in my shop but you're not sure to receive it in time due to international shipping?

No problem!

Product Care

These are few tips to keep your jewelry looking its best over time:

~ don't sleep while wearing it;
~ polish it from time to time with a small cloth to keep it shiny;
~ store it away from the sun, open air and humidity (a small sealed bag or a little box will be perfect).
