Our collection consists of pieces that are of antique and vintage condition, which means that all our items are secondhand and used. Customers are not purchasing 'new', 'perfect' and 'unworn items', and as such, should expect wear and imperfection. It should be expected that these pieces will have normal wear and tear according to their age. Wear could include patina, scuffs on the gold, slightly loose but secure stones, and light scratches on the stones. We try our best to accurately photograph everything with detailed pictures that can be enlarged and will point out any flaws we feel are noteworthy. Please review the photos carefully before purchasing and reach out to us with any questions.
