Beautiful stone. Had it sent directly to someone to have it set (it arrived quickly there). I have only just received the completed piece today and have no regrets. Wonderful texture, colour and heft. A very substantial piece indeed. Had been looking (and still do) haven't come across anything remotely like it anywhere. And oh, Brenda was incredibly helpful from start to finish. Even before I was sure about purchasing the stone. She gave very good, solid advice. Pointed me in the right direction when she couldn't directly help, and even gave me inspiration for the final setting of this piece. Cannot rate her help highly enough!

From beginning to end, all my questions were answered. Brenda went above and beyond. Even the shipping was pretty fast considering it was overseas. And the piece, beautiful! Thank you!

Welcome to my Etsy shop.

I create jewellery and because of that, have discovered the addicting pastime of collecting gemstones. My collecting mania has now gotten to the point that I need to make room (both literally and financially) for new stones coming in. I don't purchase gems in large quantities, and those that I do acquire have all been chosen with care and with a view to collecting unusual stones with character.

My collection consists of natural stones and where I am aware of any treatment or enhancement, this will always be disclosed. If you have any questions or would like more information, please convo me.

So, thanks for dropping by. I will be posting items regularly, so please check back often.

Payment
Payment is expected at the time of purchase. Items will only be shipped once payment has been received.

Payments can be made using Direct Checkout, PayPal or Etsy Gift Cards. Please be aware that - unlike Paypal transactions - Etsy's Direct Checkout is not instantaneous and can take up to 3-5 working days to clear. This will therefore affect the delivery time of orders.

If you need more time to complete payment, you should contact me before purchasing and should consider reserving the item (see below).

If you are making multiple purchases within a 7 day period, please reserve the items and I will advise you of the combined postage costs.

Failure to make payment may result in the sale being cancelled and the item being re-listed.

The price listed is my best price and no further reduction is possible.


RESERVING ITEMS

If you wish to make arrangements to reserve an item, please e-mail / convo me with your request. Items will be listed as 'RESERVED' for a maximum period of 7 days.
Shipping
Upon receiving your confirmed payment, I will send you a message through Etsy to confirm your order, your address and the date of shipment.

Everything is packed securely and protected as much as is practical. If you have specific requirements, please request shipping upgrades at the time of purchase & prior to payment. The shipping price will then be adjusted to reflect any additional costs.

Proof of postage will transfer responsibility for the goods to the Customer and you are advised to consult the Royal Mail's statements (http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm) with respect to insurance, etc. Loss and damage to the goods in transit is at the Customer’s risk.

While I aim to despatch within 3 days, I cannot guarantee delivery times which are in the hands of the postal services. You should note that transit times may vary, particularly during peak periods (e,g, during Christmas holidays).

I would advise all Customers to upgrade their shipping to include insurance in the event an item is either lost or damaged. If you require this option please confirm your requirements before purchasing and I will provide you with the additional costs incurred.


CUSTOMS DECLARATION

All items will be packaged and labelled (with a customs sticker when items are leaving the UK) as 'CRAFT SUPPLIES' with the value paid for the item(s) as the value of the goods.
Shipping documents will not be falsified by declaring false values, providing false descriptions, gift declarations, etc, so please do not ask.
Customers must bear any customs duty, VAT and/or any other charges made in their respective countries.


POSTAGE PRICES

I now offer Special Delivery postage rates as standard for all my items. Among the advantages of these services are a more secure delivery and your added peace of mind as for most countries you will be able to track the progress of your order online.

[A] DELIVERIES WITHIN THE UK

For Customers with UK delivery addresses:
Delivery to addresses within the UK is via Royal Mail Special Delivery Next Day service. My postage and packing fee for addresses in the UK is $7.00 and $0.25 per additional item. Royal Mail Special Delivery allows online tracking and electronic proof of delivery, with guaranteed delivery before 13:00.

[B] DELIVERIES OVERSEAS

I will always use the most secure postal delivery method that is applicable to your country. Some of these services may include insurance - please convo me if you have any questions.

Where the service is in operation, international orders will be sent via the Royal Mail's International Tracked & Signed service. Postage and packing fees for addresses outside the UK start at $9.00 for the first item, and $0.50 for each additional item ordered. This is available to selected destinations as it can only be operated to those countries with the necessary systems and infrastructure to support the product’s Track & Trace requirements; this enables you to follow the status of your delivery online.

As the International Tracked & Signed service evolves, the list of participating countries benefiting is continually subject to change. You can either convo me to find out more, or consult the Royal Mail's most current list here: http://www.royalmail.com/sites/default/files/RoyalMail_International_TrackedCoverage_Jan2014.pdf

If the International Tracked & Signed service does not operate your country, then I will use either the International Tracked or International Signed service, depending on availability.

Due to recurring postal problems in certain countries, I reserve the right not to offer the Royal Mail's services and instead use a private courier service for these countries. Please convo before purchasing if you have any questions, as this will affect the price of postage.

Shipping time to countries outside the UK may take longer, depending on the country of delivery.

Please note that UK Royal Mail has restrictions for certain addresses both within the UK and abroad; for complete details, check out their website: http://www.royalmail.com/personal/international-delivery/country-guides

Delivery Address: I only post to the address supplied either by PayPal or Etsy (if using direct checkout), please ensure this is correct before payment. Responsibility for wrong or undeliverable addresses will lie with the customer.
Refunds and Exchanges
EXCHANGES & REFUNDS / RETURNS

In the event that you aren't 100% happy with your item, you have 7 days after receipt of goods to inform me that you are planning to send the items back.

Any item to be returned must be shipped at the Customer’s cost. Goods should be shipped with delivery confirmation and be fully insured against loss and damage. Any charges that I have incurred, i.e. customs duties, VAT and/or any other charges will be deducted from the refund. The refund will not include any shipping costs I have incurred, i.e. there is no refund of shipping costs. This includes the original as well as the return cost.

I will provide a refund when the returned goods are received here unused and in their original condition.

My main aim is for you to enjoy the items that you purchase from me, so please always e-mail / convo me should you have any issue. Please allow me the opportunity to address your concerns to our mutual satisfaction.
