About

SparkleLux of Palm Springs™: Appealing to your inner ferret!

I have been collecting vintage jewelry since I was a teen. I've always especially loved the confetti lucite and Thermoset pieces from the 1950s and 1960s.

I can remember the first time I laid eyes on a pair of confetti lucite earrings when I was a little girl-- I was taken back!
What's not to love-- sparkly bits, pearlescent finishes, iridescent shells, gleaming metallic details... and glitter!

Throughout the years, I've noticed a decline in the amount of pieces I come across. Also, there has always been a lack of colors available., and many of them have become dull and worn over the years. I wanted purple, to match my favourite angora sweater! Pink and aqua combos to match my favourite 1950s novelty print blouse. That was my motivation to set out to make my own jewelry!

I pride myself on owning the original vintage reproduction confetti lucite jewelry company. What started out in 2009 as a hobby (and something that would be beneficial for my wardrobe) has really turned into something special. In 2010, I officially launched my business, focusing on jewelry and home decor pieces.

I use only the finest materials to craft each handmade SparkleLux piece. High shine, clarity, hypoallergenic components, genuine sterling silver and Swarovski crystals are some of the things that my customers can expect. There's a reason why I have a slightly longer turnaround time. I am a perfectionist! I really strive to listen to my customer's wants and needs-- that's how the perfect piece is born!

While I initially had the vintage-loving females in mind while creating my jewelry, my customers come from all sorts of styles, all walks of life. I've recently introduced a men's line, as well as luxury and statement pieces. I also have two more lines in the works!

In addition to taking custom orders personally, I have retailers in Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Livermore, San Diego, San Antonio, New York, Arizona, Australia, New Zealand and England.

My biggest thrill that I get from the job-- the reaction of my customers when they first lay eyes on something I've created just for them!

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
First Class mail is available for a lower rate, but there is NO guarantee on service and many of our customers experience extremely delayed or lost parcels.
SparkleLux prefers Priority Mail Flat Rate, which is around $18 for Canada and $25 elsewhere.

CUSTOMS:
Aside from the requisite shipping time for parcels traveling internationally (which can be a normal 1-2 week delivery time), items can stay in customs for up to 3-4 weeks. Please note, this is beyond our control.
The customs form number serves as a tracking number, depending on your country.
Please be aware-- some countries charge customs fees which must be paid upon pickup of parcel. These fees are separate from the cost of the item paid to my shop and have nothing to do with myself, Etsy or my shop. Please be prepared for this. These fees are levied by the country in which you reside.
Refunds and Exchanges
JEWELRY ITEMS:

All sales final unless item is defective.

I will repair a piece for free, within 14 days of receipt of delivery if there is a defect.

Please message me ASAP if you need a repair done to a jewelry item, and please provide photographic evidence of the defect with your message.

You will be responsible for the cost of mailing the piece back to me. I will mail it back free of charge.

If it has been past 14 days and a repair is needed, I can do so for 1/4 of the purchase price, plus shipping (buyer will be responsible for shipping the item back to me, as well as return shipping).


If in doubt, please ask questions prior to purchase, and please review Etsy's terms and conditions regarding purchases.
Additional policies and FAQs
I ask that any and all communication regarding sales be done through Etsy's system. I will not respond to messages regarding Etsy transactions via regular email or snail mail.

I reserve the right to end any sales without further notice. In this instance, a full refund for the cost of the item and shipping will be given.

Please do not leave any negative or neutral feedback without consulting me first. I am more than happy to work through any issues that may arise.

CUSTOM ORDER TIME FRAME:
Custom items will go out within the time frame indicated in the listing. If the item will be completed sooner or later, I will most definitely let the customer know.

Please note that all custom items generally have a one to two and a half week turnaround. 3-4 weeks during a busy season/Often, I get messages from potential customers on a Tuesday, who need a custom order delivered to them by Saturday. Not feasible, as I usually have a considerable workload. Also, my pieces need adequate time to cure. Please read all jewelry listings thoroughly; many times, I have ready-made pieces that can be shipped immediately. Thank you for understanding!

All of my earrings posts are made of either genuine sterling silver or surgical steel (nickel free). In addition, all surgical steel posts are also fortified with a hypoallergenic lacquer for extra protection. Please consult specific item listing for material details.

Ready to wear/ship items cannot be customized.
