APATITE nose stud (4mm)

My 4mm Apatite are just lovely and the perfect gemstone for sunny summer days... or to remind one of them in the depths of winter! ;o) The depth of color has a lot of "pow" and the gems look for all the world like tropical waters, so clear and fluid looking, just amazing! I'll handset your Apatite in a Fine Silver (99.9% pure silver) bezel that I’ll solder onto a 19GA Argentium stem... and I'll then form the tail style you'll select from the drop-down menu located above the Cart.

Metaphysically Speaking...

Apatite is a stone that mystically stimulates thoughts and ideas and is said to increase intellect, imagination, and intuitive awareness. As a meditation or awareness tool, it helps with maintaining focus ands in learning, concentrating, thinking and communicating more effectively. Apatite can also be used to enhance the energies of other crystals and stones. Having apatite near you can bring harmony on all levels and also inner peace. As far as the physical body goes, it is said to assist with nail problems, allergies, arthritis, bones, muscles and the nervous system. Apatite is primarily related to the throat chakra.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY “BEFORE” PLACING YOUR ORDER:

Policies & delivery estimations: http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheNozeJob/policy

1) ***EXTREMELY IMPORTANT***
Please know EXACTLY WHAT GAUGE OF WIRE YOU WEAR, as there is NO REFUND OR EXCHANGE on body jewelry w/no exceptions; this is the law in Canada and to protect consumer health (same as there's no return of body jewelry to retail stores). My default stem is: 19g / U-curve / left side piercing / 6mm shaft (industry standard length).

2) CREATION PERIODS:
a) Normal “14-day” creation period:
I’m a one-woman show and deal with the physical and energy challenges/constraints that my disabilities place on me on a daily basis... as I lovingly hand make every noze jewel specifically for the customer who’s ordered it (unless a READY TO SHIP item), I request a 14-day “creation period” before shipping so your item will ship on the 15th day. If 15th day falls on a weekend or a stat holiday, I’ll ship the following business day. ALL orders are created in order of date received... creation period to a degree will somewhat depend on my order load and my health so I’m sometimes able to ship before 14 days. You’ll receive a “shipped notification” on the day I mail your package... please see my policies (link above) for delivery “estimations” before you write to enquire where your package is. If the Customs in your country does a spot check it will delay delivery by a bit (you are responsible for any duty, costs, etc.). Please note that I am not responsible for packages once I ship!
b) OTHER CREATION PERIODS:
In each listing, under the “Shipping & Policies” tab... it indicates when your item will ship... sometimes it’s more or less than the normal, regular 14-day period I ask for so each listing ay vary a little but the creation period for EACH listing is indicated in this are.

3) I offer a 100% guarantee against defects in workmanship regarding stone setting for a 30-day period. If there’s a defect in creation then I'll repair or exchange the item (my choice), depending on the situation; if there’s to be an exchange it will be for the identical item only. PLEASE BE AWARE... if you bend and re-bend your stem while trying to “adjust it”, the guarantee will be null and void because doing so stresses the metal and makes it very brittle (called “work hardening”) and it will eventually break at the weakest point... this is NOT my fault and I can tell if the breakage has occurred from over-bending.

4) STEM INFO:
a) Default stem: 19g / U-curve for LEFT side / 6mm shaft (industry standard length)
b) Default wire: 19g ~ worn comfortably by those wearing 18g or 20g
c) Stem materials: Argentium on Silver; gold on gold; platinum on platinum.

5) TAIL STYLE CHOICES:
a) Styles: U-curves & L-shaped ONLY (no nose bone/pls see below)
b) Please see "tail style” picture in the listings and select your style from the drop-down menu located above the cart or else default will be sent.
b) NOSE BONES: I no longer make nose bones... but if you insist, there’s a $15 surcharge/item and I’ll invoice you through PayPal.

6) CUSTOM ORDER LISTINGS: Custom Listings are left up in the shop for 48 hours after posting... after that time, I deactivate them until the customer lets me know they are ready if they’ve needed some extra time. Reactivating the listing just takes a few seconds.

7) JUST SO YOU KNOW...
a) The pictures in my listings (except Ready To Ships which are of the item being sold) are representational only (a sold item) but I guarantee your gem will be either equal to, or better than, the one shown in the listing!
b) I hand select all my gem material with great care and attention and I must pay extra special attention when selecting water clear gems with color flashes such as Rainbow Moonstone, Labradorite and Peristerite to assure that the famous flashes (adularescence) are not only visible in each gem but that they can be seen from different angles. While some will have brilliant color flashes, others can be more subtle but all are equally as beautiful. Every stone I set is guaranteed to display a flash but it must be understood that in water clear materials, there will always be places where the gem will appear totally clear with no flash for this is the nature of these gems. When I photograph a gem for a listing, I use the same gemstone in all shots (unless noted in listing) because I attempt to show the color from different angles... the flash in the same stone will vary in depth and intensity depending upon the light source and from the angle from which it's shot.
c) PLEASE BE AWARE... color on your monitor may differ from mine. I do NOT shoot pics using special, color enhancing lights and I do NOT use Photoshop to rework my pics but I do use Photoshop to adjust color so that the gem appears as close to what it looks like in real life on my monitor (which may or may not vary from yours).
