I received this absolutely gorgeous cross in no time at all, and could not be more thrilled with it. Two young girls chose this sterling cross for a rosary I am making for their Grandmother. Lin, I truly appreciate your help, as well as the personal note with my shipment. You're a gem, and I look forward to shopping with you again!

About

WELCOME to Taurii, destash supplies

For me, handcrafting jewelry from metal and stones is my therapy. I am constantly coming up with new designs, the majority of which are inspired by organic, botanical forms and, over the years, I have gone through several "rebirths" as far as materials are concerned. This means that I seem to have many boxes full of carefully stashed excess supplies up in my studio, (which my family insist on calling "the spare bedroom"...) and I feel that it is time to share :)

When I buy my gemstones and other components, I either hand select them from stores within driving distance of Dallas, or I purchase from carefully researched, ethical online sellers, many of whom source from the USA, or artisans from around the world with whom I've struck up a relationship. Sometimes this means I pay a little more for supplies, but I rest assured that the sellers that I purchase from have access to good living and working conditions.

To browse my handmade finished jewelry, please visit FlauntDesignsJewelry.etsy.com

In case you're worried about pet allergies my Chiweenie, Rascal, does not come in contact with my materials or finished pieces, and we live in a non-smoking home.

Thank you for visiting Taurii, and have a wonderful day!
Best wishes,
~ Lin ~

WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS DO YOU OFFER?
Taurii accepts payment through PayPal, and major credit / debit cards via the use of Direct Checkout. All are secure payment systems and sellers cannot view your personal financial information. Please be aware that if you purchase by eCheck I cannot send your package until payment has cleared.

Shipping
Orders ship in protective packaging via USPS first class mail with online tracking to destination.

USPS rates are due for an increase 1/22/2017 and they are reverting to tiered pricing for domestic shipments, so I am going back to a tiny charge for additional items to cover this.
Refunds and Exchanges

Please contact me within 7 days of receiving the item/s to discuss. Remember that as well as my store policies, you as an online buyer are also fully protected by your payment processor, credit card (60+ days) and PayPal (180 days). However, in all cases the following conditions apply; Item has not been used, altered or damaged by the buyer, and is returned as sent, including packaging.

In the case of item damage it is the seller's responsibility to pay return shipping, but for "change of mind" it is the buyer's responsibility to pay return shipping, and it is best to include tracking on returned orders so that delivery can be confirmed before refund is issued.

Please contact me with any other questions or concerns :)

F.A.Q's
For any questions not answered below, please contact me.

WHAT IS 925/10 SILVER FILLED
925/10 silver-filled is sterling silver that is mechanically bonded to a base metal. This is a strong physical bond, not weak electroplating, so the sterling does not flake or wear off. A lot of silver-filled products are labeled 925/20, which means it must have at least 1/20 of its weight in silver, or 5% silver. At Taurii I prefer 925/10 silver filled, which contains 10% sterling silver - BETTER! You care for your 925/10 silver filled jewelry in the same way that you do your solid sterling pieces. It WILL tarnish over time, as 925SS does, and is cleaned in the same way - using gentle detergent and a soft brush / cloth, or the pre-treated cleaning cloths. I do not recommend the harsh silver dips and polishes, especially if your piece contains stones / pearls. Once fully air dried, your jewelry is best stored in little airtight zip lock baggies. Exposure to air is what causes the dark oxidation - or tarnish - process.

WHAT IS GOLD FILLED?
Gold-filled is an economical alternative to solid gold. By law, it has 1/20th by weight layer of 14 karat gold permanently bonded over a core of base metal. It is tarnish-resistant, safe for sensitive skin and, unlike gold plated, will not wear off. It is considered a fine metal, and you care for it in the same way as you do your solid gold pieces, gently cleaning them with mild detergents, soft brush and a buffing cloth.

WHAT ARE FRESHWATER PEARLS?
A pearl formed in a mollusk, often a mussel, that lives in freshwater rather than salt water. The pearls come in many shapes, sizes and colors. They form as any other pearl, built up in layers called nacre.

WHAT IS "SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS"?
Austrian Swarovski crystal is fired using a combination of natural minerals and quartz sand, cooled slowly to avoid stress and inclusions, a process perfected by the Swarovski family over the last 100 years. These crystals contain a higher than average percentage of lead, which increases light refraction, and are extremely crisply faceted, hence the extra sparkle!
