Ordering

ORDERING.PAYMENT OPTIONS:

Vintage Faerie accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express through our secure website.

The item(s) you are purchasing from Vintage Faerie Studio are custom crafted, by hand, just for you! Since our items are crafted when you place your order and include custom options such as personal engravings, personal stampings, custom-fit size, stone settings, semi-precious and vintage or rare bead selections, as well as so much more, your credit/debit card will be charged when you place your order. If you are unwilling to have your credit/debit card charged when your order is placed, nor can wait possibly 4 weeks for your order to ship, please reconsider your purchase. Since we do not cast our items, nor outsource our products for manufacturing overseas, but lovingly craft each and every piece by hand, orders take time to create and fulfill. For additional information regarding how long orders take to ship, make sure to review the ORDERING PRODUCTION TIMEFRAMES section. Please consider these factors before placing your order.

After you place your order online, you will receive an automated email confirming that your order has been received. Please make sure to check your spam filters, junk mail filters, and understand that many ISP (Internet Service Providers) are now preventing emails from reaching inboxes in efforts to control spam. Those that use AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo and Comcast emails are more inclined to have heightened spam protection and may not receive our emails. Please make sure to add our domain, VintageFaerie.com to your allowed domains list under your email spam filter options. We cannot be responsible for emails/electronic correspondence that do not reach customers, including order confirmation and shipping emails.

Although rare, Vintage Faerie Studio reserves the right to cancel any order at any time. If your order is canceled, we will make sure you are notified. Reasons for order cancellation include, but are not limited to, declined credit card/failed credit card authorization, checks returned for insufficient funds, custom information and/or photos not received, as well as abusive behavior.

ORDERING PRODUCTION TIMEFRAMES:
When ordering from Vintage Faerie Studio, it is important to understand that much of the jewelry on the market that claims to be handmade is usually casted, or mass produced. This means the original piece was made by hand, but a mold was made and therefore any number of the original piece may be reproduced quite easily. Some even choose to ship their products overseas for inexpensive manufacturing, removing the handcrafted, as well as US crafted, elements entirely.

Vintage Faerie has chosen to not cast their jewelry, rather create each piece lovingly, and many times painstakingly, by hand. After many years creating handcrafted pieces, Vintage Faerie has chosen to remain a smaller studio where personal attention to each detail comes first. Because of this, please allow us time to create your piece in the Vintage Faerie high quality custom. To meet our increasing studio demands, while offering truly handcrafted pieces, orders require 3-4 weeks for order completion. However at times of high volume, please allow us a few extra days to ship your order.

We understand the inconveniences waiting for your order may cause. In a world where everyone is used to instant gratification and mass-produced goods, it is difficult for some to understand, and appreciate, the uniqueness, and time required, of truly handcrafted items. We hope that you are able to understand and appreciate that waiting for your items from a US crafted small studio is actually part of a time-honored crafting process.

Holiday orders have specific order cut-off dates. Please review the main page of our website or the HOLIDAY ORDERING INFORMATION section for additional details.

HANDCRAFTED JEWELRY CARE:
Much of our handcrafted jewelry has been oxidized, or antiqued, to add depth to our pieces. For this reason we recommend that you avoid polish creams, dips, and/or liquids for they easily remove oxidation. Many of the semi-precious and precious stones and beads that we use cannot be exposed to strong polishing materials as well. Therefore we recommend that you use mild soap and water* to clean your pieces and a high quality polishing cloth for occasional tarnish removal. Also keep in mind the more a piece is worn, the less the piece becomes tarnished.

Never expose your Vintage Faerie jewelry pieces to harsh chemicals, such as cleaning products, bleach, chlorine, etc.

*pieces containing silk, linen, cotton or leather should avoid exposure to water.
