clovercreekbear's Shop 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.

When I list vintage silver, which is rare but can happen, it will be in its own section.

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 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 mail is $8 which includes insurance, but tracking only to Canada. To get tracking for other countries requires registered mail. 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). However 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!

Recently I added sections for supplies, and also "general vintage" which has a few non-jewelry vintage things from our family. There are also sections for natural gemstones (cherry-picked from my own gemstone collection) and natural gemstone beads (most of which are new things from my own stash I decided I won't be using after all, but sometimes are recycled from vintage jewelry...I will always tell you which).

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!
