Returns and exchange details
As the items are vintage, they will have regular wear and patina, which I will try and note in each listing. Occasionally, though we package our items carefully, stones may come loose during transit due to postal handling.

Please be aware that colour differences occur between different monitors or phone screens. Refunds will only be given in cases of inaccurate representation.

If you are not completely satisfied, you get your money back! We stand behind our listings and know that sometimes it is hard to tell exactly what you are buying just from the pictures. For this reason, please read the description, look at the enlarged pictures and ask questions.

If you are not happy for any reason, return for a full refund less shipping within 30 days. If we erred in the listing, we will refund not only your purchase price, but also cover the shipping .
I accept:
Direct checkout
Paypal - you can also pay with a credit card through Paypal without having to create a Paypal account.

Please message me if you would like this option and I will edit the listing for you!

I deliver via Canada Post Regular Parcel Post, which will transfer the package to your country's postal service, such as USPS.

I ship regular parcel post, with no tracking or insurance to keep shipping costs down. If you would like tracking and insurance, please message me and I will adjust the price for you.

Shipping between Canada and the U.S. takes between 8 to 14 business days - if there are no Customs interruptions. I am not responsible for Customs interruptions or any charges you may incur from your country's Customs policies. Please note that import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to making a purchase.

Regular Parcel Shipping between Canada and Everywhere Else may take up to 15 - 20 business days, excepting the UK, which takes 8 -14 business days.

Quoted combined shipping charges on multiple purchases are estimates based on actual weight. If you purchase multiple items and the cost is over a dollar less than quoted, you will be sent a shipping overcharge refund of the difference.
