describe our items, including any flaws. If you have any questions about the item(s) you are ordering, please use our question form to ask us about the item before placing
If that rare occasion arises where you feel you must return an item, please contact us for return instructions within three (3) days (by phone or email) of receipt of your item(s). Upon our receipt and inspection of the returned item(s), we will issue a refund for your item(s) if returned in the same condition as it was when it was sent to you excluding any shipping/insurance costs for which you were responsible. Buyer is responsible for return shipping/insurance costs, which will not be reimbursed for any reason. Returned merchandise must be received by us within seven (7) days of the date from which you contact us regarding the return.
|OUR RESTOCKING POLICY: The buyer may take up to 3 days after receipt of the merchandise to decide if they wish to keep it, as long as it has not been used, damaged, or altered. If during that period the buyer wishes to return an item, written Return Authorization by email is required. Items must be returned and postmarked within the 3 day inspection period, and carefully packed and packaged so that the item or items are not damaged during shipment.
We will issue a refund or store credit EXCLUDING our original shipping, handling, and insurance expenses even if originally shipped for free.
When only part of a multiple-item order is returned and a coupon was applied, the amount of the refund will be prorated.
No refunds will be issued for refused, abandoned, or failed deliveries.
Cancellation: Since we do our best to process orders quickly, cancellations are not possible after payment has been made. The buyer can still return any item for a refund following our return instructions. If we have to cancel an order for any reason (such as decline of payment), the buyer will be notified.
Liability: By purchasing from this site, the buyer agrees to our terms of doing business and that our maximum liability is limited to a refund only. Chargebacks and demands for refunds without returning the merchandise will be reported to a national database, which is free to other internet merchants to access; such incidents may also be reported to your local police department as mail fraud.
|OUR DAMAGE POLICY: We take every precaution to make sure that your item arrives safely. If by some chance there is a problem with damage, you must contact us for instructions. Damage and loss are covered by the shipping insurance, whether insured via a commercial insurance company or the carrier; if you do not want to cooperate with filing a claim, we cannot be held responsible for damages and loss.
Silver, china, and glass items may require extra shipping charges due to weight and extra packing materials to ensure the safe delivery of your purchase. You can see any additional fees by clicking on the Shipping Costs button for the item, and the fees will also appear during checkout before you place your order. These items will be shipped by Parcel Post or UPS Ground (our choice) unless Priority is selected as your delivery option.
DELIVERIES TO APARTMENTS AND BUSINESSES: Shipments to apartments and businesses usually require a signature upon delivery, depending on the value or physical size of the shipment.
JEWELRY CARE: We recommend that you rinse your silver and silver-plated jewelry (if it doesn't have crystals or rhinestones) with clear water after each wearing. After rinsing, gently dry with a clean, soft cotton cloth or paper towel.
We recommend either Wright’s Silver Cream or Novus #2 Fine Scratch Remover for sterling silver care. Novus is made for plastics, but we find it ideal for polishing metals and the surfaces of non-crystalline cabochon stones such as turquoise and malachite.
Novus #1 Plastic Clean and Shine is great for a final touch-up on metals and stones to give them a beautiful shine. Novus can be purchased on the internet if it is not available locally.
For removing tarnish and cleaner from crevices, we recommend using a small soft-bristled battery-operated toothbrush; light pressure is recommended. Such a toothbrush, used with Wright’s or Novus, can also restore a gleaming finish to silver when other methods fail. NEVER allow the toothbrush to get too dry while you are using it! It is better if your toothbrush is too wet than too dry.
CHARGEBACKS: Buyers who make chargebacks *will* be reported to all major credit bureaus as a delinquent collection account.
This policy replaces all previous policies; we reserve the right to change our policies at any time without notice.
