About

Handcrafted Gemstone Jewelry

Hi, welcome, and thank you for your interest my shop. I personally select every stone and component, design and make every item myself by hand, take the pictures, write up the descriptions, correspond on all purchases, wrap and ship your jewelry to you or a loved one as a gift. If you shop with me, I hope you'll find an item to treasure and enjoy for many years to come.

Perhaps by the time my niece is old enough for an after school job my shop will have grown enough to need her to help me out with the packing and shipping... But she's only 13 so I've got a few years to make that dream a reality.

I chose the name Aerides long before I started my shop. It's the name of a species of orchid. I live in South Florida and have several orchids, and have always loved the exotic variety of these plants. Aerides is also known as the Cat's Tail Orchid, the literal translation is "Of the Air" and it's pronounced "air-eh-deez".

My home is smoke-free, occasionally visited by a cat. Those little friends in my profile are two of my three "garden cats" - I look after a small neighborhood family of free-roaming cats who have claimed my yard, providing them with food, water, medical care, and love. They aren't interested in ever living inside, but the little black one will let me give her a little cuddle every now and then. I support Trap-Neuter-Release programs.

Frequently asked questions
When will my purchase arrive?

Updated for Holiday arrivals: I ship orders within 1 business day of your processed payment. Once in transit, typical USPS delivery time for US addresses is about 4-6 days, give or take. Select a Priority Mail upgrade (during checkout/cart) for average 2-4 day delivery time. You will receive tracking info when I ship. USPS does not guarantee these times, they are estimates, but typically reliable.

Are your gemstones real?

Absolutely. I source only high quality natural gems from established suppliers. I do not use man-made crystal or lab-created gems. Certain stones, such as Blue Topaz, are almost always heat-treated as an industry standard, to achieve their lovely colors.

How can I best determine the size of your jewelry?

I note the actual length of all items in the description. Please also see each of the 4-5 photos with every listing. I try to take at least one picture in my hands, to show scale, and necklaces may also be draped on a bust form for some idea. Of course, everyone is different sizes and heights, so if you're unsure, I recommend you compare the measurements to your favorite jewelry at home. (Gentlemen, if buying a gift, the "basic" necklace length is 18").

Care instructions

Sterling Silver benefits from occasional polishing with a soft cloth, and from storage out of light and away from damp. Please don't use those "dunk and dip" solutions, they can harm metals and stones.

Do you ship worldwide?

As the holidays are approaching, to avoid disappointments with late deliveries, I have briefly disabled international shipping. It will reopen on 12/24. If you'd still like to order for a January delivery, please ask and I'll be happy to enable shipping for your purchase.
