Announcement   Our estate jewelry (bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pins, and rings) wins rave reviews from our customers. In gold, platinum, and silver (with or without diamonds and gemstones) our pieces are individually selected with our customers' needs in mind.

Not only is our jewelry unique, but it is available at prices far below what you would find in a brick and mortar store.

In addition to fine jewelry (gold, platinum and gemstones), I hand pick fine silver pieces and better costume jewelry to fit every taste and pocketbook for my Etsy shop.

I also list non-jewelry collectibles I think might appeal to my Etsy customers.

I love this little lamp! It arrived very safely packed, and more quickly than I expected. It's the perfect touch for a bookshelf arrangement.

About

Great estate jewelry values

After we closed our brick and mortar antique shop in 2001 and "retired" to the internet.

We sell both fine and costume jewelry of all types and provide written appraisals by a GIA-trained gemologist for many of our more expensive pieces.

Although I personally love Victorian pieces, many of the things I sell are more recent.

In the past few years I've bought hundreds of pieces from the largest private jewelry collection I've ever dealt with. Although the owner collected every kind of jewelry, most of the pieces I'm currently selling are very high quality silver from the 1980s.

In addition to jewelry, I list unusual vintage decorative and household items as well.

Shop policies

Last updated on May 16, 2018
I hope you enjoy my shop. I love vintage jewelry and other old items and add new things frequently.

I have chosen my merchandise and formulated my store policies with one aim - - to delight my customers. If you're happy, I'm happy.

I've been buying and selling vintage fine and costume jewelry for 30 years and have extensive gemological training. You can be confident that I know what I am selling and that my descriptions are accurate.

I believe that older jewelry provides its own romance and mystique, so I don't focus on those in my descriptions. Instead, I include detailed information about materials, style, workmanship, markings, measurements, and condition.

I want you to love what you purchase from my shop and come back to see my new things often.

Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I accept returns if notified within 7 days of receipt of the item. The item must, of course, be returned in the same condition as when shipped.

If I have made an error in the listing, I will pay the shipping both ways; otherwise, the buyer is responsible for shipping both ways. This means that the cost of shipping to the customer will be deducted from the amount of the refund.

I include complete information about flaws and size as well as closeup photos in all my listings. Taking the time to read the information in the listing should make a return unlikely.
Payment
For U.S. and international customers, I accept Paypal and Etsy checkout.

I am required by law to collect AZ state sales tax on items delivered within the state of Arizona.

I offer layaway on most items with a cost of $100 or more. The terms are 1/3 at time of purchase, 1/3 in 30 days, and the final 1/3 in another 30 days. Layaway payments are nonrefundable. If you are interested in details, please contact me.
Shipping
All domestic packages are insured and include tracking (signature confirmation for packages with a value of $250 or more ).

International shipping and insurance costs for items with a price of less than $250 is shown in the listing.

International packages with a value of $250 or more (including shipping) are sent via express mail international (the only class of mail which is trackable to all locations). Unfortunately, express mail is expensive, but there are no alternatives.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT MANY COUNTRIES HAVE MAIL RESTRICTIONS ON JEWELRY AND OTHER ITEMS. If your country does not allow import of a certain item, I cannot ship it to you.

International customers are responsible for duties, taxes, and other fees incurred on international packages. I complete customs documents honestly showing the item as merchandise with the item price as the value.

I do not ship to countries where I cannot buy insurance. This includes
Afghanistan
Angola
Bolivia
Burma
China
Congo
Cuba
Iran
Iraq
Ivory Coast
Liberia
Mexico
Nigeria
North Korea
Paraguay
Russia and all countries of the former Soviet Union (USSR)
Sierra Leone
Somalia
Sudan
Syria
Venezuela

Purchases from these countries will be canceled as I do not ship internationally without insurance.
Additional policies and FAQs
I guarantee that the item you receive will be exactly as described and that you will receive the best possible service from my shop.
Privacy
Wandering Creek Jewels Privacy Policy

A new law, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect 5/24/18 and requires that I provide information to my buyers in this privacy policy, which describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference to the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
1. Personal information I collect
To fulfil your order, I must have certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me) such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.
2. The legal bases he relies on to collect, use, and share personal information
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
3. The third parties with whom he shares personal information
The GDPR requires that you disclose the details of any personal information you share with third parties. Nathan should explain to his buyers why, when, and with whom he may share buyers’ personal information. For example:
Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Etsy I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties (name and address, for example), but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, but only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
4. The length of time I keep personal information
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for 4 years.
5. If transferring personal information outside of the U.S., how the transfer will be handled
I do not at this time transfer or store data outside the U.S. Should this become necessary in the future, I will abide by applicable laws at that time.
6. Buyers’ rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases.
Access You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
