Welcome to Prized Possessions! I take great pride in the materials and workmanship associated with my jewelry. And I want to make sure the only customers I have are happy customers. I'm happy to work with you on anything...special requests for an item, special shipping arrangements, any problems, complaints or suggestions you might have. Let me know what I can do to make sure your purchase from my shop becomes one of your Prized Possessions!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If you receive an item that you are not happy with, I will refund your money within 30 days of purchase. Sorry, but I cannot take back pierced earrings that have been worn. However, if an earring were to break, I will repair it at no charge to you.

If you do not receive your order, please let me know and we will work out an acceptable solution. It depends on the circumstances, but most likely I will supply you with another of the same item.

I don't want you to be unhappy with any of my items, whatever the reason. I would much rather take the item back and refund your money than have you be unhappy with me and my shop. So please just let me know if anything is wrong.
I accept payments using PayPal, which can either come from your PayPal account balance or from your credit card. You can use your checking account to pay through PayPal also, but it takes longer for the payment to be approved. I will ship your order once I have received the funds from PayPal. If you use your PayPal account or a credit card, this will happen right away.

If the funds are not approved right away, I will convo you to make sure you didn't encounter any problems and make sure you know I am waiting for the funds and will not be shipping your order right away. I'll keep in touch with you and we'll determine together how to proceed if for some reason the funds approval is taking unusually long. I will never just cancel the order without your approval unless you do not respond to my convos or my emails after at least a couple weeks.

If you live in Kansas, I will need to add on the appropriate state sales tax based on where you live. I can adjust the invoice using PayPal to add the tax.
I ship my orders using first class mail via the US Postal Service. I almost always include delivery confirmation so you can track your package online. If for some reason I cannot do this, I will let you know.

For items in my shop, I should ship your package in a day or two. If you order very late at night, it will probably be two days. For custom orders, I should be able to ship within a week, unless I am out of a certain material. Should this be the case, I will let you know of the expected shipping date and make sure it is acceptable to you.

If you need your order faster, convo me or enter special instructions when you check out and let me know your needs. If additional postage will be necessary, I can invoice you via PayPal for that.

If you purchase three items, shipping is free on the third item. Purchase four or more items and shipping is free on the entire order.

I have not shipped internationally yet, but if you are outside the USA, I will be happy to look into postage amounts and work with you to get an order shipped.
Additional policies and FAQs
My preferred method of communication is via convo. You can email me, but I usually check the convos more often than my email. I do have a day job, so I can't reply to any convos during the day. If we need to get in touch, I can provide you with a daytime phone number. Or give me a number where I can reach you during the day.

To order my custom jewelry, convo me or enter an Alchemy order to let me know what you need. The convo method is the easiest, however. I'm more than happy to design whatever you need. I can send you pictures of various designs and you can decide what you like or how you would like the design modified.

And I am interested in hearing about wholesale opportunities

Thanks for visiting my shop! Hope you come back often!
