Announcement   In my shop I have vintage gold jewelry in solid 10K, 14K, and 18K gold, as well as jewelry-quality gemstones for your projects, and handmade items of my own. I try to make my descriptions as complete as possible, but always feel free to ask any questions!

The vintage jewelry listings range from diamond rings to pearls to gemstone rings to Black Hills Gold. I also make jewelry with cultured pearls and real gemstone beads; those are listed in the "like no other, handmade" category. A few things are a hybrid of vintage and new and will be so stated. Things I have made may have gold filled (not plated) findings but those will be clearly stated. If not solid gold or gold filled, the jewelry I make will have solid sterling silver findings. The vintage jewelry is ALWAYS solid gold of the karatage indicated.

VINTAGE items are pre-owned, and 20 or more years old (Etsy's definition of vintage). They are not new, but I won't list them unless they are in good, wearable, enjoyable condition. I do note any issues with condition, if there are any. Please be aware things look larger on your device screen than they do in reality. I list measurements so you can refer to a ruler and get an idea of actual size.

I offer free US first class shipping on all my vintage items. You can upgrade to US priority mail for domestic shipments, for $3 extra; that can make a few days' difference in travel to the east coast (I am in Washington State in the NW).

International first class mail is $8 which includes insurance. To save you money I will ship first class rather than registered mail for any purchase under $100 (I will refund you the overpayment since Etsy doesn't allow me to specify shipping cost based on purchase amount). I do not ship to Greece. The chance of mail being lost is too high, and Etsy will not allow insurance coverage on parcels sent to Greece! NOTE: I do not pay your Customs Duty for you. Every country is different and it's up to you to find out and expect to pay whatever your country charges for Customs duty. The UK's Royal Mail is very enthusiastic about assessing duty and a handling fee, often quite a large one, before they'll deliver the package to you. So be aware of that if you're in the UK!

Buy anything which has free shipping, and your whole order ships free (in the US) even if some items normally would not have free shipping; I will need to refund the shipping charge that the invoice charges you as I don't see a way to make that happen automatically.

If you are a US customer, and considering MULTIPLE PURCHASES, contact me for a shipping code to get 5% off your entire purchase. Sorry but due to the cost of international mailing I can no longer offer this discount to international customers.

I think you'll find my prices to be very affordable, and the quality high! I make every effort to describe things accurately so please read the descriptions carefully. I want you to be pleased, so I always allow returns UP UNTIL 4 WEEKS after you receive your purchase (just let me know your intent within 10 days of receipt, please). The cost of international mail is not refundable. You need to pay the return shipping cost yourself, and do use tracking so that we both know where your parcel is on its journey. When it arrives back here I'll refund your purchase price, with no restocking fee.

Thank you for stopping by!

Welcome to my shop! I don't have a business, just a hobby. The weakness I indulge for that hobby is a love of gemstones and vintage gemstone jewelry. I collect gemstones and vintage jewelry, and make some simple beaded gemstone jewelry. When I post items for sale, I make every effort to keep prices low so that things are affordable to others! That means my profit margins are thin, but that's ok, as long as I have just enough to keep collecting, I'm happy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Payment is by Paypal or by credit card (Etsy supports both). Or if you live locally you can come in person and pay cash, and also get a discount for the shipping I don't have to do! I will reserve something for you (hold it for you) for up to two weeks if you like.
Shipping
Vintage jewelry ships free in the US. Other items have a shipping charge BUT combined shipping is free (often people do want to buy several things). I do not ship internationally in December due to loss of items in the mails. International mail has become less secure and except for Canada I now have to send gold jewelry via registered mail rather than simple first class.
Refunds and Exchanges
You can always send something back to me (for any reason) if you change your mind. Please do let me know within one week of receipt, though. You will need to pay to return it and when I get it I will refund your money. If I made a mistake in the description and that's why the return, I will also refund your return shipping cost.
Additional policies and FAQs
My profit margin is very very thin and that's why my prices for quality jewelry are affordable! However if you are going to buy more than ONE item from me, AND you have a US mailing address I can ship the item to, you'll get 5% off your purchase price if you use coupon code MULTIPLE. This is not for international shipment customers, sorry. Thanks!
