Here you will find all manner of treasures from my sanctuary~ Goddess-inspired, hand made jewelry, trinkets, baubles, and embellishments!
I intend my creations to be for the pleasure of the myriad of the contemporary warrior/goddesses that make the world go round. Goddess is not something to aspire to, it is something we are—all of us. Sometimes it’s just a question of being reminded, or finding that inner essence again inside ourselves. My jewelry is intended to help you do that.
Let this collection of stone and metal remind us of the strength we hold as women. The soul of the earth is nourished by our happiness.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
I cannot be responsible for US postage loss, or damage. You have to option to purchase insurance, please convo me or include it in your paypal order and I will adjust the end total for your item/s.
Address mistakes which cause the item to be sent back to me will require me to bill you again for postage (usually 3.95 domestic) in order for it to be sent out again.
THIS IS A NO HAGGLE ZONE- Please note: my prices are not randomly or arbitrarily assigned, they are a result of careful calculations based on market value. My goal is to offer you exquisite, hard to find pieces at very reasonable prices that are in many cases below retail. It's just not cool to ask me to lower my prices. Please don't do it. This is a shop and a business (as opposed to a garage sale or bazaar in Northern Morocco, for example) and it's how I use my expertise in jewelry design and sales to make my livelihood. Thank you.
It's unusual that I am not able to get your goodies in the mail within 48 hours, but occasionally it happens when a snow storm hits, or I become otherwise incapacitated--but this is very RARE. I'm known for my quick shipping, not to worry.
Shipping charges are configured carefully and with your best interests at heart-- both expediency, and frugality. Charges do include handling, materials, travel, and delivery confirmation- it just has to be that way when you're doing this kind of thing. I will mail either First Class USPS, or Priority- depending on what's less expensive for you. I do not refund postage charges under 1.00, but I also do not charge you extra shipping if somehow I underestimate.
INSURANCE: Insurance is not included in the listed shipping price --so the item will not be shipping with insurance. If you would like your package insured, you must contact me at the time of purchase so I can adjust the invoice to include the addition price for insurance.
I CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR POST OFFICE LOSSES- once the item is shipped with tracking number, I am not able to provide refunds for losses that occur during shipping OR once the item has been delivered.
Yes, I will ship anything anywhere in the world! Prices listed are for USPS International Mail ---and PLEASE NOTE -- this service does NOT provide tracking info. If you'd like to have a tracking number, you must upgrade to USPS International Priority. To do this, convo/email me so I can adjust the invoice to include the extra charges for that. If you pay before and request extra shipping afterward, I will send an invoice to cover the difference, and your item will ship once the balance has been paid.
Customs forms are completed in compliance with country policies where required.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT TIMING on INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
As you know, packages which ship between Europe and US, take about 2 weeks to be delivered. A small package can be delivered quite quickly, but, some packages are controlled by customs. So, the delivery time extends to one month. Sometimes, it may take longer. Alot longer.
I must say again here that I CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR POST OFFICE LOSSES or delays in customs. I can reassure you though that Zingara's Enchantments is an international shop with customers literally all over the world--nothing's been lost yet in 6 years since opening my shop, but losses can happen. If you have any worries, please upgrade shipping and purchase insurance.
OVERNIGHT DELIVERY: I will be glad to send your package via FedEx, UPS, or the delivery service of your choice once the postage difference has been paid. Convo/email me with your address so I can provide you with an adjusted invoice.

My philosophies about the stones are summed up beautifully by Vijaya Kumar who wrote in All You Wanted to Know about Gems :
1) All stones or gems have magnetic powers in varying degrees, and many of them are beneficial to us for their therapeutic cures.
2) They emit vibrations and frequencies which have strong potential influence on our whole being.
3) They create strong energy fields which enable us to be charged with their energies.
4) The gems are used for healing, transforming, balancing, and attuning the body, mind and soul.
5) They are a manifestation of vibrancy, light and color, life, textures, transparency and clarity.
6) They activate our abilities, soothe and comfort, heal and balance through the purity of their rays.
7) The patterns in the stones reveal to us the changes that keep taking place, indicating that life is change – that the process of evolution is a cosmic law.
8) Each gem, tuned to a particular ray, has a special role to play.
9) The gems can be cleaned by leaving them under running water for six to eight hours. Or, bury them in some earth overnight, and rinse them off. Or, keep the stone in the flame of a candle until the candle melts. Or still, place the stone amongst a heap of quartz for several days, whereby its energy is revived from the contact of the quartz.
10) The gem that is cleaned should be placed in direct sunlight, for the sun is a great source of energy and purification.
11) The more precious stones that you wear, the more strongly will you be charged with cosmic forces, radiating out into your surroundings.
12) Wear your stones – Do not store them in a safe or jewelry box, for you will be depriving your body of their tremendous power.
13) Precious stones have a way of healing emotions that have been inharmonious.
14) The stones selected for use should always be in contact with one’s body to absorb their healing properties.
