Announcement   Established in 1999, Rubypearl has been creating dresses for women and girls with a flair for the whimsical. Much time is spent hunting and collecting interesting and beautiful materials, much of it very old. Vintage slips are then hand-dyed and adorned with fabric, scarves and trims to create artful one-of-a-kind pieces that never go out of style.

Rubypearl was founded by artist and free spirit Sunny Haralson. Trish Hurless joined Rubypearl in 2010 and became sole owner in 2012 while Sunny went on to pursue another great artistic endeavor. Sunny authored the hilarious coming-of-age story, Beauty Tips for the Bereaved.

We make dresses and tops for women of all sizes and girls size 9 mos-14 girls. Smalls and mediums are the biggest sellers so we make more of those, and so you'll see more of them on the site, but many beautiful plus size dresses have been made. We specialize in broad shoulders or larger bust sizes as well.

A note on textiles:
Vintage materials are old, which means they are sometimes worn, sometimes have tiny holes, sometimes imperfect in little ways. I fix what I can, and if it doesn't detract from the coolness I use the fabric anyway. I forgive the little imperfections because it allows me to make beautiful creations out of materials that are environmentally friendly. It is cool because it's vintage. But it is also old and imperfect because it is vintage. It is completely impossible to separate the two. We do everything we can to assure that everyone is happy with their purchases.

We accept Paypal, credit/debit through Etsy, personal checks and Etsy gift cards. We are open to making installment arrangements case by case (just convo us!). We do not ship your item until the payment has cleared (check has cleared or installments have been completed).
Shipping
All shipments outside of the United States must have insurance. If you choose not to purchase insurance there will be no refund if it gets lost or damaged.
We have been doing a lot of research on shipping + tracking, trying to find the cheapest way possible. Shipping prices reflect costs, insurance for anything over $50, and tracking. For orders shipping to Canada or anywhere else in the whole wide world, we ship Priority Mail International or P.M.I. Flat Rate with Registered Mail, (whichever way is the cheapest) which takes 6-10 business days to arrive. For domestic orders we ship Priority Mail, which takes 2 business days to arrive. We normally do all our shipping on Fridays, so keep that in mind when you are placing your order. If you would like your purchase sent any faster, please convo us before you make your purchase. If you would like to have cheaper shipping options, please convo us.

and after communicating to me-ship it back the next day(unless we agree on something else)
Customers are responsible for all shipping fees. If you're worried about whether something will fit, please convo us before you buy it. We'll work with you to make you happy!
Additional policies and FAQs
A note on custom orders: We make every effort possible to describe to you/send pictures/follow your specifications about your custom dress. In the end, though, describing something visual is like describing music-it's hard. We will, however, do everything in our power to make you happy!

Regarding wholesale orders: We have a $500 dollar minimum, the wholesale price of some items is 50%, on others it is not. Convo us for more information.
