Announcement    I make elegant, handcrafted artisan jewelry celebrating nature and featuring precious metals, gemstones, semiprecious stones, freshwater pearls and sea glass. Each and every piece is designed and made by me, is in stock and ready to ship.

I do not have a physical store front, I only sell via mail order. I ship via USPS First Class Mail with tracking. Shipping is free for orders $35 and over. For smaller orders, I only charge for the actual shipping cost, any overage will be refunded.

***Please note that due to COVID-19 and other problems at USPS, shipping may be delayed. Packages mailed from here in Florida to the west coast, Alaska and Hawaii are taking an exceptionally long time. Also, USPS is not updating tracking information in a timely manner especially after holidays, so if it says Pre-Transit, that doesn't mean I have not mailed it. Thank you for your patience.***

All of my jewelry is made with nickel-free metals: sterling silver, fine silver, 14k gold filled and gold vermeil. With the exception of gold vermeil beads (sterling silver with thick gold plating), I do not use any plated metals. I prefer a natural, organic look, and the stones I use in my designs are mostly hand cut and not so perfect that they look synthetic or manufactured.

Because every piece in my shop is in stock and ready to ship, I do not include size options. Most of my necklaces and bracelets are adjustable to cover average sizes. I can make simple alterations to many of my jewelry pieces including lengthening or shortening. Feel free to message me with your requests.

Please view all of the photos and read the entire listing description including my shop's policies before ordering.

About CoralReefDreams

On Etsy since 2008

A Life Long Love Affair With the Ocean

I often have wonderful dreams about diving on a beautiful coral reef and seeing fantasy coral gardens, fish and sea creatures from another world. So, I decided to name my ocean-inspired jewelry line Coral Reef Dreams.

I create my jewelry from a variety of materials including precious and semiprecious gemstones, freshwater pearls, sea glass I collect myself and quality metals.

All of the metals I use are nickel free, nickel is the most common cause of metal allergies. I am allergic to nickel, so I don't make anything that I cannot wear myself.

Except for fossil coral (agatized stone), I do not use any purchased coral in my designs. The huge market for red coral jewelry worldwide is depleting the species, as well as other species of corals. I support coral reef conservation organizations with annual donations.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I can make simple alterations to many of my necklaces and bracelets including lengthening or shortening. Ear wires can be upgraded to lever backs at checkout. I also have a collection of small sea creature charms that can be added. Feel free to message me with your requests.

Care instructions

It is best to remove all jewelry before putting on or taking off clothing, that seems to be the most frequent cause of breakage. Avoid bending wire jewelry as it will eventually cause breakage. Delicate pieces are not intended for swimming, playing sports or continuous wear. Wear them to the office, out to dinner and on special occasions and they will last for many years. Sterling silver can either be allowed to darken naturally, or kept shiny using a cleaning method that is safe for any pearls or stones included in the piece. Tarnish is the result of exposure to air and moisture. It is best to store your piece in a sealed container such as a zip lock bag, and if it has any colored stones, away from strong light to avoid fading.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All purchases are shipped packaged in a teal blue gift box. I ship all orders in padded bubble envelopes to ensure safe arrival.

Shipping policies

Please make sure you have entered the correct mailing address at checkout. If your item is returned due to a wrong address you provided you will be responsible for the additional postage to mail it again. All orders are shipped via the U.S. Postal Service with insurance and tracking. If your package is lost in the mail I will issue a refund after 30 days in case it has been delayed due to Covid-19 or other problems at USPS. Unfortunately, once your package has been shipped and tracking shows it as delivered, I will be unable to provide a refund, as package theft is not covered by shipping insurance. You will need to contact your local post office and file a claim. You may also need to file a police report for theft.

Guarantee

My jewelry comes with a one year guarantee against defects in workmanship. Be sure to read Care Instructions above. Damage due to improper care is not covered. I can usually repair a damaged piece unless I am out of or unable to acquire an uncommon bead or finding.
