Jewelry and Accessories for the Victorian at Heart

I must admit, we are true Victorians at heart. While we've dedicated many, many years to reasearching the American Civil War, we enjoy any and all things Victorian.

I've been collecting jewerly from an early age, starting with modern, working back to the early plastics era of Bakelite and Lucite, and I've finally settled in on the Victorian era. Every piece of jewelry has a story to tell, and I feel it is my responsibility to tell it!

Tom's specialty is American military history, and he is the author of "Cadet Gray and Butternut Brown, Notes on Confederate Uniforms" and "Civil War Cockades". He is currently working on a new book detailing activities in Missouri in 1861.

We love traveling and searching for "treasures" to bring to our Etsy customers. We've been selling on Etsy for over six years now and I love the fact that I've been able to make friends with customers from across the globe!

NEW TO ETSY? Here is a great guide to assist you in making your first purchase:
We are happy to ship international. However, we will only ship to countries where insurance is available and insurance will be added to all items going international. I make very effort to ship next day and almost always within 3 days of purchase.

Domestic Shipping: Any jewelry item sold for less than $100 will be sent in a bubble wrapped package via 1st class mail. Items sold for over $100 will go via flat rate priority mail. Books are generally shipped via media mail.
US Domestic items under $100 are mailed USPS first class mail. All USPS first class mail items will have a tracking number but no insurance. Please contact me if you would like insurance. Insurance is $2 for items up to $100, which I purchase from either Etsy or the US Postal Service. All items priced over $100 are mailed USPS small flat rate with tracking that includes $100 worth of insurance.

International Shipping:
For International buyers, all packages are shipped by First Class International. Due to recent claims of items not received from buyers in certain countries, ALL international packages are now sent by First Class INSURED rate. If you would like Priority International mailing, the cost is $35.00 which does include $100 flat insurance and a tracking number. If you would like this option, please convo us so we can adjust your invoice.

International customers are responsible for duties, taxes, and other fees incurred on international packages.

I use basic packaging, bubble mailers, bubble wrap, recycled boxes, and when required, USPS priority mail packaging. Your items ship from a non-smoking home. All Paypal shipments will go to the Paypal address on file, Etsy credit card payments to the Etsy address on file.
Additional policies and FAQs
All the jewelry is vintage or antique and has been previously worn. Items will show wear commensurate with their age and any major flaws will be noted. Many enlarged close, detailed photos are taken for you to view. All items are described to the best of our knowledge. If you have any questions, please feel free to convo me or request additional photos. You, the buyer, are the final judge after viewing the photos and reading the description.

Sorry, I do not offer layaway, but as an alternative to layaway, I am happy to RESERVE any item(s) upon request for up to 30 days.
