About WELO OPALS

'Ethiopian Welo/Wello Opal is a relatively new find and has rapidly gained popularity. It has some of the most amazing patterns of any opal, and plays of color that reflect shades of light seen nowhere else in the natural world. Anybody who loves opals I would urge to give this gem a chance. It is easy to become mesmerized by its unique beauty. Because of the hydrophane property of this opal it can become crystal clear when saturated in water and as it dries it will turn completely opaque, and then slowly return to a crystal/ semi-crystal state as it completely dries out which can take anywhere from a few days to several months. Over that time you can watch the opal slowly reveal new patterns or plays of color, sometimes gaining colors, and sometimes colors change or fade away. Because opal is not one of the hardest stones, ( only six on the scale of 10,) it is not recommended to be worn everyday, in the form of a ring, and NEVER put your hands in bleach or harsh detergent when wearing your ring. This will, most likely, cause permanent damage. And, don't forget, most swimming pools water is filtered with chlorine, (bleach.) to kill bacteria, which is not friendly to any jewelry.

Please read return policies before making a purchase. An informed buyer is a happy shopper. And if an issue arises, please make CONTACT thru the shop's Etsy-mail, so we can try to resolve it, before leaving a nasty review. Thank You.

Please be aware, this shop does NO RESIZING of rings, but now some rings are adjustable, and most are resizable by your local silver smith or jeweler.

Unfortunately, the photography doesn't capture the natural beauty, color and sparkle of many of the gemstones and crystals, (especially the opals,) but when you see them in person, you will not be disappointed by Mother Nature.

Every domestic order over $15 is insured thru Etsy, and tracking can be seen by clicking on the 'YOU,' icon, top, right, and then click 'Purchases & Reviews.'

Vintage or Antique items are sold 'As Is', (non-refundable, but CAN Be Exchanged.) If purchased as a Christmas Gift, it can be Exchanged, by the purchaser only, and only if the shop is notified, (thru the shop,) within 5 business days after Christmas, (buy the buyer,) at which time, you should be able to tell me which item you would like to exchange for. Then you will be given mailing instructions and after I get the item back, (and have inspected it,) I will send the exchange item, or if the price is considerably higher, 'Reserve,' your chosen exchange item, with additional cost, with Your, (buyer's,) name on it, and put it on the last page of the shop. The buyer will have one week to return the unwanted item, for exchange, in which case I should receive it within two weeks. Also note, return Shipping Charges are not refunded, and you will be charged for them on the new choice.

On Antique, Vintage, or SALE items, prospective buyers are responsible for determining the physical condition of items from the Highly Magnified Photos in the listing, and the printed conditions in the description. Seller notes are based on opinion and are provided for guidance only. The pictures provided are a part of the description, and highly magnify unnoticeable, (by eye,) flaws. Antique, and Vintage jewelry should not be expected to look brand new, and will sometimes show wear, tarnish, or imperfections commensurate with age. Please view the pictures for detail. Weights and Gold value's stated are approximate and not guaranteed, (as Gold prices fluctuate daily,) this includes stones etc., in the weight. Age stated in the title and descriptions are opinion based on sellers experience & is in no way guaranteed to be such. These items are returnable for exchange only, and under certain circumstances, (such as, if the shop is contacted promptly upon receipt, etc.) If authorization is given to make an exchange, on a Vintage, Antique, or Sale item, or a refund on a New, Hand Crafted item, instructions will be given regarding shipping of the return.

'PS' on listings means 'Price Slashed.' Every item purchased is Gift Boxed, and mailed, first class, insured, asap, (usually within 24 hours,) UNLESS a shipping upgrade is purchased.

On Etsy since 2009

Grandma's Rocks

I started beading gemstones, making necklaces and bracelets, after breaking my wrist, as therapy to bring back the dexterity in my fingers. After I went back to my job, I continued, as a hobby, just for the joy of it.

After I found out about etsy, I opened this shop, to sell what I had made, along with pieces I had collected through the years. I also put up for sale prints of my paintings, sculpted dolls, vintage toys, & ceramic art.

Then I lost my job, and after a year of trying to get rehired, along with millions of other people, I decided to go for broke. I had just turned 60 and found out I could use my 401k money, and spent every penny of it on new supplies, and awesome vintage finds to sell in my shop.

And since pictures speak louder than words, I'll show you a few.

Last updated on August 5, 2019
Welcome to my little shop of Hand Crafted Gifts and Vintage Treasures. Please be aware that since the photos are so highly magnified, that what might look like an imperfection in the photo is usually not visible by the naked eye, and natural gemstones do sometimes have inclusions, (i.e. Emeralds, moonstones, etc.,) which should be expected when they are grown from crystals by Mother Nature, (over billions of years,) and not in a sterile laboratory. Most of my gemstones come from India and Thailand, which is why I am able to keep prices of finished pieces as low as possible, and therefore affordable to most people in the US. However, Gold and Sterling Silver prices are constantly rising, as are prices of the most desired gemstones, so please don't convo me asking me if the price of an item is, 'the best I can do,' because IT IS. This is not just a hobby, it's how I 'make a living,' and a meager one at that. And, as I am only human, I do not have limitless patience. I work long hours, and am not exactly a 'Spring Chicken,' anymore, 'so to speak,' and I don't try to deceive people for profit. That's not a good way to STAY in business. So, if I know a gemstone to be lab created, (which a very few are,) it will be noted in the listing.

Happy Shopping !

Returns and exchange details
All Vintage and Antique items are NOT Refundable, but can be Exchanged. If you have any reservations about an item, please contact me thru the shop, with inquiries.

If, for any reason, you are not happy with your purchase, notify the shop immediately, upon receipt, (thru the shop contact system, not e-mail or feedback.) If any item should get lost, or be recieved damaged, (very rare,) you will have to provide proof, for the insurance co., and an insurance claim will be processed. Every item, (over $15.00,) purchased in this Shop is now mailed, first class, Insured, thru the USPS.

Again, Vintage and Antique items are not Refundable, (and should not be expected to look brand new,) but can be exchanged, (for store credit.) Visible, (by eye,) flaws will show up in the highly magnified photos, or mentioned in the description. If you have any reservations about an item, please contact me thru the shop, with inquiries.

Also, Please be Aware, that We have No control over the USPS postal rates, which have been continusously rising, (for some time, now.) Or, how much the UK, or any other country, (for that matter,) chooses to charge for duties, import taxes, Royal handling fees, or what ever they choose to call any extra charges that are tacked on to your parcel. Every country, in the entire World, has there own policies, which it's officials can, and do change whenever they please. AND, as a matter of fact, I more often, than not, charge less for shipping, than I end up paying for it, (perhaps because I insure every item I mail.) And, I try to keep the cost of items I sell, as low as possible, (or people won't buy them.) And for everyone's information, my Etsy Shops are my full-time job, and after all is said and done, I probably work over 80 hours a week, (since I do Everything Myself, involved in running of it,) with no help from anyone, (that's just for the record.)

Thank you for your consideration, and Happy Shopping !
Payment
We accept direct payment with credit card, as well as Paypal, and prior to Christmas, a layaway plan can be set up. If 'Layaway' is your choice of payment, and you do not follow thru with the payment plan, as agreed upon, you will forfeit any payments made, and your item may be sold to someone else. That's how it works, even in Wally World.
Shipping
Your item will be mailed to you (via the USPS), within 1 to 2 business days, first class, insured, so (in most cases) should arrive at your door, within 2 to 5 business days (in the USA.) If you are worried about weather conditions slowing down the mail because you are a 'last minute' shopper, there are also shipping upgrades available at checkout.

Or, how much the UK, or any other country, (for that matter,) chooses to charge for duties, import taxes, Royal handling fees, or what ever they choose to call any extra charges that are tacked on to your parcel at your end. Every country, in the entire World, has there own policies, which they can, and do change whenever they please. AND, as a matter of fact, I more often, than not, charge less for shipping, than I end up paying for it, (perhaps because I insure every item I mail,) and don't charge for packing supplies.

International orders may experience a slight delay with customs, however, so please allow sufficient time for delivery when ordering, anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks, is customary, depending on your location and volume of mail, (esp. at Christmas.) Customs numbers are now the same as tracking numbers, and you can track your items from your Etsy acct., since I use Etsy to print all shipping labels. If you need assistance finding tracking, just let me know. We also have insurance to cover International orders, as well, now, (but keep in mind, that the recovery process can take up to 8 weeks.)
Additional policies and FAQs
Please give precise information as to where your item should be sent. If you would like it sent to someone as a gift, please make SURE the address AND Zip Code is accurate, to avoid postal problems, delays, or loss, and if you would like a little note to the recipient put inside, just indicate this at time of purchase, in the space provided, at checkout. If you want to track your items, it is now available from your account. If you don't know how to access it, let me know, and I will guide you to it. Just contact the shop, (thru the shop mail, not e-mail.) On International orders, customs numbers are now the same as tracking numbers, which can be accessed from your account.

Also, on international orders, please note, that any import taxes, or duties on your end are your responsibility.

If you have been given permission to return an item, for exchange or refund, I will give you instructions on how to send it back. If you return an item after it has been damaged by you, kept for longer than the allowed time, (to return it,) or without noyification,(to wear for the holidays, etc.) or without authorization, it will be sent back to you, and not refunded. No Partial refunds are given if you want to keep the item. And you will Not be refunded for return shipping costs, even if you are authorized to make a return. However, if you paid for shipping when you purchased it, that will be refunded, (at my discretion.) I know all the tricks, and this isn't JTV, (but incase you didn't know, even tho they give you a return shipping label with your purchase, they charge your credit card $8.00 if you use it.) Nothing is FREE in This world. And scammers are abundant on the internet.

Again, all Antique and Vintage items are NR, (Not Refundable,) but can be exchanged, when authorization is given.

Honest buyers only, please.
