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 now must be sent by First Class INSURED rate. If you would like Priority International mailing, the cost is $28.00 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.
Refunds and Exchanges
We will offer a full refund if item received is not exactly as described. Customer service is my top priority. Just notify me within 3 days of receipt of merchandise that your will be returning your purchase. If the return is for a misidentification or missed a flaw (I'm human and can make a mistake), I will refund your shipping both ways (free shipping is excluded). If you just decide you don't like the item, or it was not what your were looking for, I will not refund return shipping costs, and there will be a restocking fee of 25% of the cost of the item assessed before any refund is made. Please contact me with your questions.
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.

Layaway may be available on certain items with the following terms -- please contact me in advance of purchase.
~Term of the layaway is 30 days.
~A non-refundable 33.3% deposit (1/3 of total) plus 5% layaway fee is required at the time of purchase. I will send you an invoice through Paypal.
~The second payment will be invoiced a week from purchase in the amount of 33.3%, with a due date of 15 days from initial purchase.
~the third, final payment will be invoiced 2 weeks from purchase with a due date of 30 days from initial purchase.
~Shipping and any applicable tax (NY State residents) will be included and divided among all deposit and payment increments.
~If payments are not made by the due dates the deposit will be lost and the item will be relisted for sale. Any payments over the initial deposit and fee will be refunded.
~If you should re-purchase the item within 15 days of forfeit, the deposit will count toward the purchase and you will be billed for the total, due upon the date of purchase. This grace period elapses after 15 days.
~Once all payments are made and cleared the item will be shipped.

As an alternative to layaway, I am happy to RESERVE any item(s) upon request.
