About

"One should either Be a work of Art, or Wear a work of Art" - Oscar Wilde

A story I recently came across helped me remember when my affaire de coeur with jewelry truly began. And hence I’m rewriting this and hereby sharing some of my fondest memories. My love for jewelry came from my grandmother, the sweetest woman you would ever meet. Nurturer to the core, she loved her jewelry box and every trinket that ever lay in it had a story to tell. Some full of joy, some with a tinge of sadness, but every piece with a character of it’s own. If you have ever seen a piece of jewelry from India you will know that it can get very complex and each is a work of art in it’s own right. I’d spend hours on lazy summer afternoons with my grandmother, listening to her stories and mesmerized by the twinkling of the jewels. From rubies to emeralds to sapphires to diamonds, it was a fairy tale world. And while I was too little to wear them at that age, they certainly left an impression on a young mind that associated them with the tales told. The ring from her birth mother, the brooch my grandfather brought her from England, the necklace that attracted the attention of one too many suitors……the stories, as well as the jewelry, were simply mesmerizing.

As humans we share stories. These stories may happen in different places, at different times and with different people. However there are common threads that connect us all. I hope that pieces that tell my story resonate with some of what you have experienced in life and that they speak to you.

My designs, hence, are inspired by life around me. Whether bold or delicate I like to make pieces that cannot be ignored. I simply love the beauty of naturally occurring gemstones and design around the stones. Usually a piece will go through a lot of iterations before it's finished. My design aesthetic is trying to find a happy place between high fashion and subtle glamour and my natural inclination is to let the beauty of the gemstones shine while complimenting them with contrasting colors and textures. I also love movement and introduce it when possible into my designs.

Most of the pieces in my etsy shop can be customized subject to materials availability. I would love to hear from you as I design to make people happy.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy - I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers - I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Compliance with laws - I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 10 years.

Access :
You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete :
You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object :
You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain:
If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Batul Tambawalla, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at galantajewels[!at] gmaildotcom
