Victorian era inspired jewelry is modeled after jewelry made during Queen Victoria's reign of the United Kingdom from 1837 to 1901 - a period associated with romanticism and elegance, which is reflected in my designs.

I design and craft my jewelry in my small studio located in the heart of Switzerland, near the mountains and just at the border of the woods.

About

Welcome to the World of Purple Peacock!

I’m Natascha Ratzlaff, conscious creator at Purple Peacock, modern-day renaissance woman and tribal fusion dancer extraordinaire with a serious addiction to all things sparkly.

I’m the beauty & brains behind Purple Peacock. I spend my days in my private creation space in beautiful Switzerland, dreaming up & designing sparkly, beautiful signature pieces that are both eco-conscious & chic (& women can wear every day of the week!)

Seriously, whoever decided you have save extraordinary for the weekend? I’m all about being unforgettable and rocking a goddess-worthy wardrobe everyday. That’s why my pieces are hand-crafted to make a major statement.

In a sentence: Purple Peacock’s jewelry is large and luxurious. Shimmering and polished. Dramatic. Beautiful. Not afraid to stand out. Just like you.

‘Cause Purple Peacock isn’t just another small handmade jewelry business.

Here are a few reasons why my jewelry is different:

x It’s Handcrafted: Every exclusive piece of jewelry I make, I make with my own two hands, right at my workbench – no outsourcing, no child labour involved (well, I admit my little offspring helps now and then with unboxing packages or picking rhinestones, but that’s all fun and no work). I’m meticulous and detailed and exceptionally privy to the little details. Yep. Attention to details. That's my OCD-Me.

x It’s High-Quality: I’m wildly passionate about using only high-quality materials. (So much so that I spend hours, literally, on scavenger hunts for fine materials for my jewelry. Ask my hubby. He knows.) I carefully select glass stones from Austria (namely the big Swarovski® bling), beautiful cabochons and beads from Czech Republic (where handmade artisan glass is a several-hundred-years-old tradition), plus metal elements from the US that have been carefully aged and sealed or masterfully plated with sterling silver.

x It’s Eco-Friendly: All of my materials are eco-friendly and cruelty-free. No possible conflict gemstones; no limited precious metals. I value the environment (and the people living in it!)

When I’m not tinkering away on my workbench pumping out pretty pieces for Purple Peacock, you’ll likely find me spending time with my precious family. I’m a wife and mother foremost. And I couldn’t do all that I do without their loving support.

You might also catch me shakin’ my hips in my private studio (a.k.a. dance room), teaching the dance I love so much to a lovely bunch of students, getting creative with pixels, playing RPGs with some friends or outside inhaling the sweet, crisp Switzerland air.

Thank you for stopping by and for your interest in my little treasures.

All of my products are swissmade - handmade with passion & precision, crafted in Switzerland.

In my designs I use high quality glass stones from Swarovski® and Preciosa® and combine them with findings from manufacturers like Trinity Brass, Vintaj & more. They are made of brass, which has been either antiqued and sealed for the rich and warm finish of Antique Bronze or wich has been plated with sterling silver and then antiqued for the elegant and lustre apperance of Antique Silver.

Almost all of my jewelry is lead and nickel free - with the exception of the pieces where I use vintage components such as old kuchi jewelry, because I can never tell what metals have been used in the making of these antique components. If you are unsure if you might react to certain metals, please contact me first so we can see if the piece of your desire is a good fit for you.

Payment
I accept PayPal & Direct Checkout via Etsy.

Wire transfer from within the EU or Switzerland is also possible. Please contact me in this case before you place your order for bank transfer details. The buyer has to pay for any additional fees that might occur in this case.
Shipping
International buyers are welcome! I ship all my items with insured shipping, so you will get a tracking number and also a refund if your parcel is lost or damaged. Shipping fees include actual postage fees and the insurance fee. All purchases over 150 CHF ship free!

All customs and additional fees have to be paid by the customer. Please check with your local authorities for further information. Please understand that I will not declare any items as gift as this is against national and international laws.

I use new and neutral packaging material on the outside so no potential thief is attracted too much to your parcel. Inside, your items will be beautifully packaged and wrapped, ready for gift giving - either to someone special or to yourself.

I do not include jewelry boxes in my packages, as these would add to the dimension of the envelopes and therefore increase shipping costs drastically. I have to stay within 2 cm maximum height for an envelope, otherwise shipping will more than double.

For high items like rings or cuffs, I have to ship them in a parcel, this is why shipping for these items is so expensive.

Please let me know if you have a deadline for your order to recieve so I know in advance and can plan accordingly.

The fees are for standard shipping which needs a bit of time. Please allow 2-4 weeks delivery time after your order has shipped. I have no influence on how long and if an item will be hold up in customs.

It is possible to upgrade to Express Shipping, but this is very expensive. Please contact me if you are in need of express shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
Your satisfaction is my uttermost concern! If you recieve your order and are not happy with it, there is a 100 % money back guarantee, no questions asked, within 30 days after the item shipped. Just send me the item back and I will refund you the full price minus shipping costs as soon as the item arrives here. But I am sure that you will love my little treasures as much as I do.

If you don't recive your item or it is damaged upon reciept, please let me know. Please also take a photo if the item or the packaging is damaged, so I can check with the postal service about a refund.

My items are handmade, so not two are the same. Please be aware that the item you recieve may vary slightly from the photo you have seen.

Slight color variations are also available with premade items, due to different monitors and monitor settings.
Additional policies and FAQs
Thank you very much for your interest in my work and for your trust. If you have any questions about an item please convo me before your purchase. I'll be glad to answer all your questions.

Please don't hesitate to contact me also if you are interested in anything custom made - I love designing for you!
