VINTAGE PIECES/ JEWELRY DISCLOSURE
I find it important to first note
that I am not a jeweler. I do my best to describe- or under describe- items to
exceed your satisfaction when you receive it.
I want your repeat business and am not out for a quick sale at the
highest possible price. I am never out to mislead anyone. I continue to learn
as I go and hopefully will become better as time goes on. I purchase jewelry
boxes/ bags from estate sales and other venues. I acid test 33% of items that
come in hallmarked and test 100% of items that are not hallmarked. If I state
in the listing the piece was tested, then rest assured it was. There is always
a possibility something might slip through the cracks. It’s unlikely, but not
impossible. Some items are older and some are nearly new. I do list items as
newer if they appear that way, there’s no telling how long someone has owned
them. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, check the "snuggabiltiy" of your
stones. They were secure when I photographed them, unless otherwise noted, but
I will not promise they will remain that way. (Especially the marcasite ones)
so please check them to ensure they remain that way.
Ladies and gentlemen? Let’s face it,
we all want to look our best when we put ourselves out there. We either get
gussied up or take multiple photos until we get our best side/ or look. Selling
rings is no different. I use natural light from the back window, a room light,
and a table lamp. I take several photos at times and choose the best ones,
HOWEVER, I do my best to be honest about the missing teeth and the mole if it
exists- so to speak! Most photos will clearly expose a negative and if it’s
really bad, you will find it noted in the description as well. Most folks will
say the item was way better than pictured, but occasionally sometimes it’s not.
I try….what can I say?
Shipping is both the material and
postage cost, as well as a handling charge. I wish would let us separate
it, but they won’t. I am a company of
one person…. I get some part time help from a gal with lots of kids. She is not
paid an hourly wage, but by the item. She earns 50 cents. No matter how many
pieces you purchase, I collect only the original postage price, less 50
cents, and the rest pays her wage. I do
understand that many pieces can fit in a parcel under 3 ounces but that’s the
only means by which I pay her. With that you get the promise that items are
shipped not only within 1 business day, but often the same day as payment is
made. I WANT YOUR REPEAT BUSINESS!! As does she!!
PAYMENT/ COMBINED SHIPPING
Payment is expected within 7 days of
sale end. will remind you daily on my behalf. If you are combining
items, please holler when you are done. They should get automatically combined
for US buyers, but be assured if you pay and they don’t, I will refund any
overage before shipping out your items.
I would most appreciate it if you only made one payment when all items are
done. If you pay more often and I ship your parcel out, I will be unable to
combine the other items at the reduced rate…it happens….lots!! I gladly will
combine your wins for up to one week, give or take a day or two.
I gladly ship internationally to
most countries. Canada, most of Europe, Australia, and some assorted others.
There is a flat cost for one item and the others combine for 50 cents each.
There are some that I will not ship to due to both the cost to prove shipment,
and the postal security. I need to reserve the right to cancel a sale if you
sadly reside in one of these. Contact me first with any questions.
Send anything back you are not happy
with within a week or two without issue. (please contact me first) If I made a
mistake, I will take care of the shipping cost. If I did not, it’s important to
note that shipping both ways is NOT REFUNDABLE.
The service was provided. The most common issue is sizing. I will
provide a photo of the ring on a sizer if it’s in question. I check sizing
twice. Once when listing and again when shipping out. It is possible that I
might have made a mistake. Please try your ring on at two different times of
the day before thinking there might be an issue as sometimes other factors
might influence the way a ring fits. I do not do many returns but have the most
lenient policy my sanctity will allow. There is no restocking fee.
I leave response as soon as you pay for
your item. I believe that is important as you have completed your part of our
transaction. I appreciate your positive response after you receive your piece
at lightning speed as I have done my best to complete my part. All my paying
customers are rock stars and I want everyone to know it!! I do not withhold
response until I receive it….what’s the point?
Folks, I try to be available during
all normal hours of the day for questions. I do not work, nor have I ever,
worked banker’s hours Monday through Friday. You can generally expect an answer
to a question within hours- not days. I am also a customer on and treat
you the way I would love to be treated myself. You will not get lost in the
shuffle as I am not a large company with hired hands to answer queries. I try and work very hard/ quickly for your
WHAT SETS ME APART FROM THE OTHERS
I consider myself a service guru. No
policies, no fences, no rules, just whatever I need to do to make you happy
today and earn your repeat business. I
have a mascot, as pictured, when you click on my response page. His name is
Baxter and he is ever so spoiled. Anytime someone contacts me to give a shout
out to Baxter he earns a treat……he is not starving by any means! I am extremely
easy to talk to and am here during normal “waking” hours to help you. Give me a
