The ring is dainty and perfect. It took about two weeks after I ordered to get it --- (Dec. 11) I just gave the gift to who I had purchased it for, and it was a bit small for the size that I ordered. We had both gotten our rings sized at the mall, and their ring size was 7.5. I ordered a 7.75 from the shop, and it was still a bit smaller than I expected.
Vintage whimsy meets modern elegance...
I first dabbled in making jewelry while still in high school. Gathering modest beads and findings from the aisle of my small hometown Walmart, I crafted simple necklaces and earrings for myself. Soon family and friends began requesting designs of their own and I had my first taste of the pleasure of jewelry design and the fulfillment of creating something beautiful that brought joy to others.
In 2006, during my sophomore year at the University of Kentucky studying psychology, I discovered the fresh face of Etsy and saw an opportunity to launch a small business to fuel my creative passion. I began spending many late nights in my dorm room designing jewelry and packaging my humble creations to be sent on their way to customers all over the world. I graduated from the bargain beads of my youth and became passionate about working with rare and unique vintage components as well as luxurious pearls and gemstones.
I’m inspired to create pieces with a sense of nostalgia, suggesting the costume jewelry of mothers and grandmothers that so many young girls embrace during innocent games of “dress up” in their youth. Lovingly I breathe new life to vintage pieces (cameos and flower cabochons are especially dear to me), pairing them often with pearls and gems for a sense of elegance, and adding a modern twist for a truly whimsical, unique result. My designs are for the winsome girl, who looks to the past, keeps her head in the clouds, and dreams for the future…

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If you wish to cancel an order, you must submit a cancellation request through Etsy Conversation within 24 hours of ordering.
All standard orders ship via USPS First-Class Mail. First-Class Mail takes on average 3-5 days for delivery within the United States and 1-4 weeks for international deliveries (in some rare cases items can get held in customs for over a month). I highly suggest purchasing insurance as I cannot be held responsible for items that are lost or damaged in transit. Please send me an Etsy Conversation prior to ordering to get an quote for insurance based on your order total.
Make sure the shipping address entered during Etsy checkout is the address where you'd like your item(s) to be mailed. Please allow up to 5-7 business days for the fulfillment and shipping of your purchase, unless otherwise noted. You can check the status of your order under the "Purchases & Reviews" section of your account.
Purchasing insurance is an option. I cannot be held responsible for items once in the hands of the postal service, therefore no refunds can be made for items that have been lost or damaged in the post unless insurance has been purchased.
Refunds and Exchanges
Working with many vintage components and natural stones, it is normal to see some slight variation from piece to piece. There may also be some aging typical of vintage items. Please know that I hand pick each and every component from my inventory so that only the best are used in my designs. I would not sell a piece that I wouldn't wear myself. Do allow for some slight variation in your purchase from the item depicted (unless the piece is one of a kind, of course), though I assure you that each and every piece will be equally as beautiful as the one shown in the listing.
I work very hard to capture photos in natural light which accurately depict my products. There can be some variations in color from monitor to monitor, so if possible please view items from various computers in order to determine color. Item descriptions will provide details about a product's size and other relevant characteristics, please read carefully before making a purchase. If you have any questions at all regarding an item, please feel free to contact me!
Refunds and exchanges are offered on a case by case basis only. I do try very hard to make sure I accurately portray my items and that each piece is scrutinized for the highest quality. If by some chance you are not happy with your order, or there has been a fault on my behalf, please contact me within 7 days of receiving your order. It it my greatest concern that all my customers are completely satisfied with their purchase. Please contact me before leaving negative feedback if you are unhappy with your purchase.
*In the event a return/exchange is offered, the buyer is responsible for arranging and paying for shipping to return the item(s) and will be charged an additional shipping fee for any exchanged items to be mailed to them.

Additionally, please keep in mind that many items can be customized by an alteration in color, scale, length, etc. If you see an item for sale that you would like with some minor adjustments, send me a convo and we can discuss customizing it to suit you.
