On Etsy since 2017

My Much Loved Hobby - To A Hopefully Much Loved Business.

Hello and welcome to Chic Valentina. I've been designing and making jewellery for about 13 years. I worked full time for many years and so after redundancy I was able to spend more time doing what I loved which was jewellery making.

I have always loved jewellery and gemstones have fascinated me from a child, so it makes me very happy that I am now doing something I love to do, creating & making pieces that hopefully will make the recipient very happy too.

I love creating different styles of jewellery & I hope to bring a wide range of jewellery & accessories to my shop using varied techniques & materials.

All of my jewellery is handmade with love, care & attention to detail & all of the gemstones & materials I use are all ethically sourced from reputable UK suppliers. Where possible, suppliers of gemstones will reinvest money back into the mining villages, helping the miners & their families to have a better quality of life.

Chic Valentina is run by myself, so not only do I produce items for the shop, I do all the photography, shop management, business management etc.

When you buy a handmade item from Chic Valentina either for yourself or to give as a gift, you can rest assured you will be the proud owner of an item of outstanding quality, beautifully made by hand. Many items are unique, one of a kind pieces, so no-one else will have the same.

If you've made it this far, I hope you enjoyed reading my story. Thanks for taking the time to read it.

Best Wishes
Yvonne💖

Frequently asked questions
Can I return an item I have purchased?

If you are not completely happy with your purchase, please contact me via Etsy messaging within 14 days of receiving your item. I will do my best to resolve your problem. If not you can request a full refund.

Buyers are responsible for return postage costs. (Except for faulty items). Once you have notified me you will have 30 days from receipt of your order to return items. Excludes weekends & Public holidays.

Items to be returned in their original condition, unworn & with original packaging. It is recommend to use a signed for service to ensure safe return of your purchase for refund.

I do accept returns for earrings provided the seal on the bag containing them is not removed.

Custom/Personalised orders are non refundable.

How do I look after my gemstone jewellery?

Gemstones are sensitive to light, avoid leaving your items in sunlight, it's best to store in drawer or jewellery box, this will also keep them clean.

Most metals left out to the elements will tarnish over time. I advise keeping both plated & precious metals in a sealed, airtight bag with anti-tarnish tab in a drawer or jewellery box. If wearing perfume or body lotions allow them to dry before adding your jewellery. To keep your jewellery clean wipe occasionally with a soft cloth this will keep your items clean & sparkling. Using silver cleaner on plated items is not recommended.

What if my item arrives damaged or breaks?

I want customers to be happy with their purchases. If your item arrives damaged then please take a few photographs of the item & send to me via Etsy messaging, so I can ascertain how to resolve the problem.

If your item develops a fault or breaks then please message me via Etsy messaging attaching photographs of the problem. I will do my best to resolve the problem but only within 6 months of purchase.

I'm overseas can how do I return an Item?

If you are not entirely happy with your purchase & you wish to return it, could you please let me know as soon as possible.

It is important that overseas customers clearly mark a return package as "RETURN ITEM [NO VALUE]" on the original customs label & on the parcel, so that customs charges are not made on its re-entry to the UK as any such costs will unfortunately be deducted from your refund amount.

Please return the item in an unused condition & in it's original packaging & use a tracked signed for service & proof of postage.

Do International Customers Pay Duty & Custom Fees?

International customers are responsible for all duty & custom fees. I will complete & attach the required customs form to your shipment, but it is the buyer's responsibility to pay any amount owing for customs/import duty.
