► STANDARD INTERNATIONAL orders do not come with tracking or insurance so unless you have requested to upgrade, International orders are *NOT* guaranteed. (Express Shipping recommended for larger Intl. orders)
► SHIPPING ETA
U.S. shipping can take anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks. International shipping may take 1-4 weeks, depending on customs delays. Once shipped it is no longer in my hands so shipping times will vary.
►PRIORITY U.S. SHIPPING
Need it within 3-5 business days? If you are in the U.S. and want to upgrade to Priority, please let me know which item you will order *before* purchasing so that I can adjust the listing. ($6 standard 1st item)
PRIORITY & EXPRESS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
► PRIORITY INTL. takes 6-10 business days and can cost around $15-$17 depending on location. It does not come with a guarantee, but may be better than Standard.
► EXPRESS INTL. shipping is the only way to guarantee & insure your package & it runs $25-27. I highly recommend it for orders of 4 items or more.
Please contact me beforehand with your location if you need to upgrade.

►► JEWELRY CARE TIPS
ALL JEWELRY should be taken off before showering/swimming/exercising, and kept clean & dry in a closed storage when not in use. Jewelry needs to be properly cleaned just like the clothes we wear.
STERLING + GOLD FILLED:
To clean Sterling Silver rub with baking soda + water paste, or toothpaste & water or jewelry cleaner. For Gold-fill use dishwash liquid & water or jewelry cleaner. Be careful not to tangle chain. Sterling silver and gold-FILLED components can last years of regular wear.
Raw Brass brightens up quickly if you rub with lemon + water then rinse. Soft nail buffer also works. (I keep a lemon water spray bottle handy). All raw brass, like Silver will patina if not cleaned. (depending on the air & body chemistry) It is not irreversibly tarnished, just oxidized.
GOLD + SILVER PLATE:
Do not scrub Gold or Silver-PLATED components. To prolong PLATED components wash gently with dishwash liquid and water, take off before shower/swimming/exercising, and store dry in a closed container. Lasts longer if cared for.
I carry mostly brass vintage components, you can clean just like raw brass but more gently. They need a little more TLC, but they do make for charming pieces.
