Gold & Gems LLC and Lani's Jewelry & Gifts
Gold & Gems has been in business since 2008. After attending school with GIA for my gemology certification in 2005, I originally started out buying and selling small collectibles and jewelry on eBay from estate sales and yard sales. During the gold party craze, I was able to collect some beautiful estate pieces. I was elated to later discover Etsy, as I felt the buyers were more appreciative of the jewelry I had to offer. In 2011, my family moved to the small town of Rutherfordton, NC where I opened a small storefront in the heart of the downtown Historic District of Rutherfordton where we DBA as Lani's Hidden Treasures Consignment Boutique. Small town like is a lot different from the Miami, Charlotte and Anaheim cities where I previously lived, but the people sure are friendlier! I enjoy meeting and talking with my customers. Many of them feel like family since they visit so often and have watch my children grow up in my shop since they spend a lot of time with me as I work when they are not in school. My daughter has been with me at my shop ever since she was born, so many of my customers come to visit her as she seems to have become the shop "mascot".
In addition to estate jewelry in my shop, I also carry children's clothing, ladies clothing, shoes & gowns, vintage and antique collectibles, designer purses and accessories, and NOS vintage buttons. I have a little bit of something for everyone. I do have another Etsy shop called BeyondTheButtons with a sample of the buttons that I have.
I enjoy what I do and enjoy sharing my finds with those who can appreciate them.
Above, you will find pictures of my shop including pictures of jewelry that I have not yet listed on Etsy since there is so much. If you see anything that catches your eye in the pictures, please do not hesitate to contact me for additional information and a price quote.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
I offer layaway. A 20% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the item for layaway. You may make payments via Paypal to goldandgemsllc [!at] gmail.com. After the first 20% down, you can make as many payments as you'd like, in whatever amount you'd like, if the item is priced under $500. For items priced over $500, a minimum of at least 10% of the listing price must be paid each month. Of course more may be paid if your budget allows. For layaway items over $500, a late fee of $15 will apply if your monthy payment is not received by the last day of the calendar month. Any late fees will be added to the total balance of the item. Items priced under $300 must be paid in full no later than 60 days from the date of the first layaway deposit. Items/totals over $300 must be paid in full no later than 90 days from the date of the first layaway deposit (unless prior arrangements have been made with me). If the full amount of the item is not received by the agreed date on the 3rd month (2nd month for items under $150), a $2/day fee will apply for every day that there is a remaining balance. If the total amount is still not received within 60 days following the agreed date on the 2 or 3 month term (a total of 4-5 months from your first deposit payment), the item will be relisted and all monies paid would be forfeited and would not be credited towards any other purchase. Resizing requests will not be completed until the item is paid in full. Layaway items will ship when the total amount is paid in full. *Layaway cancellations will forfeit the 20% deposit paid. If cancellations are made after making a few or several payments, the deposit would be forfeited, but the payments made after the initial deposit can be used as credit for another item (it would not be refundable as cash). Any account credits will expire after 12 months. -Forfeited money due to non payment beyond the agreed terms is non refundable nor can it be applied towards another purchase.
-Promotional offers/discounts are not applicable towards layaway plans.
International packages are shipped USPS Priority Express International (3-5 business days, not including any customs delays) since only Express offers insurance options, hence why the international shipping fees are much higher. Gold & Gems IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for delays in international shipping. Please review your country's international customs/shipping policies prior to purchase, especially if there is a deadline by which you must receive your item. No returns will be accepted for shipping delays.
Refunds and Exchanges
Items lost or damaged en route, is not the responsibility of Gold & Gems for repayment or replacement as all items are insured and handled by USPS. If an item is lost or damaged en-route, please contact me and I can file an insurance claim with the Post Office. In damage cases, you will be required to ship the item back to Gold & Gems prior to refund. You will be refunded once the claim is processed and USPS compensates for damages. If a store credit was used for the purchase, the refund will be in the form of another store credit. Refunds can take up to 30 days.
NO refunds on layaway deposits. No exceptions.
