Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me. I try to photograph my items in such a way that they are represented as true to life as possible. I recognize however, that colors vary from monitor to monitor and the inability to try jewelry on before buying can produce a bit of apprehension in making such a personal and emotional purchase online. That's why, even though I'm confident you'll be thrilled with your purchase, if you get it home and it's really not what you thought it was going to be, please contact me within 5 days of receipt to discuss a refund or exchange.

If a refund or exchange is pre-approved, items must be returned in original packaging and in excellent condition. Customer is responsible for return shipping costs.

If an exchange is the course of action, exchange will be shipped out at a 50% discounted mailing rate. My way of saying thank you for giving me the opportunity to make you happy!

If a refund is the course of action, it will be issued the day I receive the return in the mail minus the original shipping costs.
• My preferred form of payment is PayPal.
• Personal checks, money orders and PayPal e-checks are accepted. Items will be shipped once payment has cleared the bank. If paying by check or MO, the mailing address will be provided to you on your Etsy receipt.

• All orders are packaged in a red Gem studio chocolate colored box with red Gem studio professionally stamped in red foil lettering. To cut down on packaging and shipping costs, i might put orders with multiple items into the same box. If you'd like items in their own boxes, just let me know in the "Message to Seller" during checkout. Also, if an item is a gift and you'd like it gift wrapped and/or sent directly to the recipient, include that in the notes to sellers as well as the TO and FROM you'd like on the gift tag. Gift wrap is complimentary!

• I ship the day after I receive payment. If payment is made on the weekend, I ship Monday.

• All U.S. orders are shipped USPS Priority Mail

• If you'd like your item insured, please convo me so I can update the listing to reflect the insurance.

• International buyers, please convo me for a quote.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome special requests and custom orders. If you like my design aesthetic but don't see exactly what you're looking for, please convo me. I'd love to work with you to design something specifically for you.

• To protect the luster of gemstones and pearls, apply hairspray, lotions, perfume BEFORE putting on jewelry.
• Remove jewelry BEFORE showering or swimming to keep stringing material from stretching.
• To ensure precious metals stay shiny, be sure to put jewelry in a closed jewelry box or ziplock baggie when not in use. Better yet, slip an anti-tarnish strip into your jewelry box or ziplock to help absorb the oxidizing agents. I pick mine up at Bed, Bath & Beyond in the silverware care area.
• Should your sterling oxidize and you want to bring back some of it's original gleam, use a soft toothbrush and DAWN liquid dishwashing soap to lightly scrub the silver. Rinse and dry well with a lint-free cloth.
• Use a clean, lint-free cloth to clean pearls, gemstones, and turquoise. DO NOT USE A CHEMICAL BASED POLISHING CLOTH ON STONES. They are too abrasive and will actually dull pearls.
* Do not put pearls or strung jewelry in an ultra-sonic cleaner.

I take great pride in making jewelry that will last a lifetime. However, sometimes, a weakened joint or stress point can occur no matter how much care is taken. Should your jewelry need repair, please contact me as soon as possible. Most repairs within the first year from date of purchase are free. After that, a part replacement charge may be incurred on a case-by-case basis. You pay to ship to me, and I'll pay to ship it back to you. Sound fair?
