★ Sometimes we use the terms "petite" and/or "large" to indicate attention to the item, because it is descriptive term for smaller than usual or larger than usual.
★ When we say "rhinestones" we try to include descriptions of foiled, unfoiled, shape and color.
★ In reference to colors: amethyst purple or lavender does not mean the rhinestone is a semi precious stone. If it is a real gem stone, we use the term "semi precious".
★ Included with the description for items that are “gold filled” will be the information actually found on the item. All initials, hallmarks and information will be in the description.
★ Condition of the item will be included; any flaws we see under a loupe will be disclosed in detail in the description.
★ We do not thoroughly clean our sterling silver pieces (rings, necklaces, earrings, brooches) as we feel the natural patina is much more beautiful than a sparkling clean piece.
