Do you take custom orders?

outside of ring sizing when a design allows for it.  Feel free to email

may not yet be updated with new inventory.

Do you offer financing or layaway?

Yes, we’re always happy to assist with a payment plan, to ensure you get 
the pieces you love.  A 50% down payment is preferable to hold an item - 
with final payment due within approx. three months of initiating a layaway (some flexibility possible).  Please email us to discuss and arrange for payments.

Is gift wrapping available?

Each item will be securely wrapped with care, for safe shipment - thus, 
gift wrapping is not always feasible atop packaging.  Smaller items, 
such as jewelry, will be packaged in an attractive reusable biodegradapouch and/or 
recycled gift box, when possible.

What is your exchange/return policy?

Unworn items, in original packaging, may be exchanged or returned within

email, for a full refund or repair to be considered. Each item is 
carefully examined prior to shipping.  Vintage and antique artifacts are 
sold “as is”.
