About

Girls Really Do Love Diamonds

As a single 30 something with all my lady friends getting engaged around me - I got a little diamond envy - and I've been collecting some fabulous jewelry :) My parents got married (in the 80's!) with a custom sapphire and diamond engagement ring and a vintage wedding band set with diamond chips. Later on as an anniversary gift my father purchased a flashy new diamond ring set to replace my mothers set (now antique!) and they used the gemstones from her original engagement ring to have a pair of earrings made. My mother gave her original wedding band to me and it was my first piece of diamond jewelry. I love the idea of re-purposing jewelry and starting out with affordable vintage wedding rings so you can pay for other big things (like homes & babies!). I plan to expand this shop to include handmade items; my hobbies include metal casting, welding, 3D printing, laser cutting, sewing, & photography. I hope the proceeds from my sales of vintage items will allow me to purchase raw materials & take courses in gemology. All metals & stones are tested and guaranteed! <3 Amorette

Please pay through Etsy or choose "Other" for a PayPal Invoice you may pay over 90 days. I am located in MA, USA so taxes apply for residents of my state.

Please contact me promptly if you wish to make any changes to your order before it is shipped.

For USPS Priority Mail shipping Domestic is 2-3 day, Canada is 6-10 day, International will take up to 30 days - depending on destination. International buyers are required to pay VAT to receive purchases, depending on their country. The customs declaration value will be the sale price.

In the event of loss or damage during shipping please contact me so I can file an insurance claim. Please send photos of damage to the shipping box and item to verify and aid in compensation via insurance. Please do not discard packaging and/or item. If items are marked as delivered by USPS and have not shown up yet give them a few more days, items marked as delivered will not be eligible for insurance claims.

Do you size rings?

In order to offer returns on purchases I do not offer ring sizing services. Custom orders are non-refundable so I prefer to give the customer the option to have a change of heart when they are selecting from my jewelry. I recommend taking vintage jewelry to a reputable local bench jeweler for sizing and routine maintenance.
