DF Lawrence History

DF Lawrence is based in Metro Detroit, in the Great Lakes State of Michigan. With its rich cultural history, Detroit is a place where nothing stands still. Even antiques don't remain the same but are always evolving into something wonderful.
DF Lawrence started more than 15 years ago, when its founders moved to the Ann Arbor area and picked up on the quirky styles of the University district. A mix of funky new and off-beat vintage came together to inspire us to sell clothing and books as well as unusual items. One of our pieces - a 1950s Florida souvenir coconut head named Jo-Jo - even made it to the big screen, making its debut appearance in a Rob Reiner movie, Flipped.
Today, DF Lawrence is a premier online source for quality heirloom jewelry and watches. Our jewelry spans eras from Georgian to Mid-Century. With pocket watches and men't leather wrist watchs, DF Lawrence has rounded out its offerings to provide buyers with a curated collection of fine vintage and antique collectible jewelry and watches.
We hope you visit us often to see new additions to our shop. We hope you shop frequently and remember that vintage is made to be worn; there is no sense in having jewelry packaged away in an attic.
By the way, if you are in the SE Michigan area, visit our collection at the Knightsbridge Antique Mall in Northville (Greater Detroit).
If you are a collector of fine antique and vintage jewelry, or simply seeking an exquisite and unique piece, you'll find it here. As we continue to grow our online presence, we look forward to working with those who share our love for turn-of-the-century jewelry and fine vintage watches.

Thank you for visiting DF Lawrence Jewelry on Etsy. We look forward to your visit and hope you will find something you love. DF Lawrence offers high quality vintage and antique jewelry and watches for men and women. If you have a particular style you like, let us know and we'll keep our eye out. If you have questions about any of our items, please send us a message.

All gemstones listed as such are considered laboratory-created or heat treated unless listed as natural, except diamonds. Diamonds are natural in every case.

Owning a vintage watch is like owning a vintage car. It requires regular maintenance to operate properly, including regular cleaning, oiling and adjusting. This should be done by a qualified watchmaker. Cleaning, oiling and adjusting watches is not a service we offer currently. That is the responsibility of the purchaser. We will not accept returns for watches that need to be cleaned, oiled or adjusted.

A note about photographs: While we strive to take pictures that display accurate color, metals and stones are not always exactly as the photo depicts. In trying to get close ups of a piece, you often sacrifice the tone of the gemstone. For example, a stone described as purple may appear more pink in a photograph. For colored glass and gemstones, if you have any questions or concerns about the particular shade, please contact us directly.

International buyers: Buyers outside of the United States will be charge for International shipping, first class, through the United States Post Office. This is the cheapest option. The USPS will generate a customs number, and the item can be tracked until it leaves the United States. At that point, the customs number will only track items in some countries. If you wish to have a tracking number or insurance, you must pay for those services additionally. Otherwise, we will only be responsible for the package until it leaves the United States. After the package leaves the United States, we have no further responsibility or liability for the package, unless you purchased additional tracking or insurance. If the item is over $500, you will be contacted in order to purchase the additional tracking and insurance.

We cannot be held responsible for lost or delayed shipments outside of the United States if you choose not to purchase insurance.

Items that have been reduced in price, either through an Etsy sale, or through direct negotiation, are not eligible for return.

Payment
We gladly accept payment via Etsy Direct Checkout (which includes all major credit cards).
Shipping
We ship Priority Mail via USPS within 3-5 business days after payment is received. Time of receipt depends on your location.

Regarding our packaging, we do try to be environmentally friendly. Your item will arrive in a box appropriate to the size of the item. but often surrounded in very bland brown paper to keep your item from moving around in the USPS box. Don't misread our intention. We want your exquisite antique jewelry to arrive in pristine condition. We believe the items speak for themselves, and will never put frou-frou before safety!
