Updates

These elegant two-tone earrings are now available in more colors! These make great special occasion earrings or statement pieces for everyday.
My favorite crown settings are now available as earrings! I love that the open backed settings let the light shine through the vintage crystal stones.
I wore a pair of my 1797 Gauffier earrings to Costume College this weekend and I really loved them!

About

Setting up shop

I started my shop when I started making bonnets and hats and simply couldn't stop. They take up too much room to keep them all myself, so Etsy to the rescue! I've since expanded to offer historically appropriate trims and hard-to-find high quality millinery supplies. My current focus is reproduction Georgian Jewelry, in particular the collet necklaces made famous by fashion icon Anna Wintour.

Make sure to follow me on facebook (https://www.facebook.com/damesalamode?) to keep up with the latest items, discounts, and specials, as well as following along with my costuming adventures.

    I'm a reenactor of the 18th and early 19th centuries, with a passion for historic costuming and millinery- especially millinery! Historical accuracy is of the utmost importance in my creations and they are lovingly made by hand.

Thank you for visiting Dames a la Mode. My name is Taylor, and I'm a historic seamstress and reenactor living in beautiful, historic Washington, D.C. Accuracy is extremely important to me, and I strive to create the best reproductions I can while keeping my items affordable.

The majority of my jewelry is handmade-to-order and my current creation time could be up to 5 business days. Many of my items will ship much quicker than this, but please be aware that it may take me some time to have it finished. If you need something quickly, please contact me before you order so I can ensure that I meet your deadline. Most earrings will ship in 1-2 days.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept all major credit cards through Etsy direct checkout and paypal.
Shipping
Ribbons and flowers and some earrings ship first class while all necklaces (and some earrings) ship Priority Mail (with tracking and insurance). I will combine shipping on all orders and will refund you any excess shipping charges over $1.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: I have had a couple of people tell me that they had to pay import taxes on their items. Please note that I will not cover or refund you for these import charges if they are assessed on your item. Please check with your country's postal service to determine if any additional charges will be levied on your purchase. In addition, please do not ask me to falsify the value of the items I am shipping on customs forms. Customs forms will be listed with the full value only.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be thrilled with your purchase from Dames a la Mode, so please contact me immediately if there is any problem with your order and I will do my best to correct it.

A few standard policies:
Most of jewelry is shipped Priority Mail with tracking and insurance. If your item is lost or damaged by the postal service, I will file an insurance claim on your behalf. Once the claim has been settled (generally this takes 25-30 days), I will issue you a refund for your order or I will replace the item for you (if I have the supplies to make another). Please note that if the item is listed as delivered by the Postal Service, I am unable to file a claim and cannot refund your order. Please ensure that packages can be stored safely and securely at your location. Priority Mail does not require a signature, but please contact me if you would like that option and I can set up a custom listing for you.

I am happy to make adjustments to your items if you order the wrong size (for example a necklace that is too short or too long), however I will ask for you to cover shipping both ways. I will return ship Priority Mail, which is generally $5.50.
I make every effort to pack my items securely, but occasionally an item may arrive damaged. If this happens, I will happily repair your item and will pay shipping charges both ways. If you wish to return the item, I will pay for return shipping and refund you when the item is received. Refunds are issued only with the return of the item.

REFUNDS:

If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, then you may return it within 5 days for a refund of the purchase price, minus a 10% restocking fee (25% for custom orders). I ship all of my items with tracking, so I will use the delivery date to determine the timeline. I recommend that you re-ship with tracking and insurance. If I do not receive your package, I will be unable to issue a refund. From 5-15 days, you have the option to exchange your item for another or receive store credit for future purchases, however I will request that you pay for shipping for the new item. Please note that I do not refund or cover shipping either way for a return or exchange, unless of course the error is mine. After 15 days I do not accept returns or exchanges.

Again, it is my goal for you to love your experience shopping with me, so please let me know if there is anything I can do to improve the experience.
Additional policies and FAQs
Interested in wholesale quantities? Please contact me, I'd love to discuss working with you!

For custom orders, I ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time that the order is placed. Once I have completed your jewelry, hat or bonnet, I will post pictures for you to see and will ask for the remaining balance. Once your item is completed, you have 30 days to purchase the custom listing. After 30 days, your item will be offered up for general sale and your deposit will be forefeited.
