General Terms & Conditions
Please note that some of the items displayed may have already been sold but they are included to illustrate the range of jewellery I have to offer.
For convenience the necklaces shown here have been broadly grouped by materials rather than colour and the dominant necklace or pendant material dictates which group they are placed in. In some cases (e.g. aquamarine) the elements may only have a small amount of a particular material or even none, but they have a similar tone or feel. Likewise you will find lavender tones under the amethyst heading even if the pendant is jade.
If you are interested in purchasing any of these unique pieces of bespoke jewellery you can use our simple online shopping service which handles your payment on a secure server for your protection. Alternatively you can contact me directly for further information and prices. (see the Contact page for details). Please make a note of the Stock No. associated with the item(s) you are interested in so that I can easily identify the piece.
Because each piece is unique it is not possible to produce copies but I may be able to offer you similar pieces if the one you like has already been sold.
All items are fully described. The terms antique or vintage are applied to elements and jade pendants that have a certain degree of age. Some pieces are older and if known, I will state their period or date. Others have a bit of age, but it might be difficult to determine. But the description is based on both the information provided by the traders and my own experience and knowledge. It is however, not easy to detect the age of jade. The Chinese have been reproducing their jade carvings for centuries, repeating the same designs because they are considered beautiful, and carving them in much the same ways.
We hope that you will be completely satisfied with your necklace but in the event that you are not happy, we offer a returns facility. All necklaces are fitted with a security tag.
Items should be returned new, unused and in the original packaging, including labels, unbroken security tags and the silk bag the jewellery comes in.
