Layaway: Sparkle Now, Pay Later

Let's talk about convenience. I've got a layaway plan that's as easy as a Sunday morning. No tedious applications or strict qualifications here. It’s all about a modest 25-50% deposit, followed by a comfy six-month window to square up the balance. Weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly payments—it's your ship to sail. Once that balance is all sorted, your dazzling treasures will be winging their way to you. Flexibility is my middle name! Heads-up: PayPal is your trusty sidekick for this journey, and you'll have your gems in hand once the final payment is in. For all the nitty-gritty, swing by my Policies page.

I'm all ears and here to guide you. And don’t forget to take a stroll through the rest of my collection. It's a treasure trove brimming with fresh and delightful discoveries.

Ruby: The Gemstone of Legends

Alright, folks, let's talk about corundum! This gem is tough as nails, coming in second only to Diamond on the hardness scale. So, what does that mean for you? It means you can give it a good cleaning without too much fuss—just follow the manufacturer's advice. Easy peasy, right?

Now, if you've got a Ruby with a lot going on inside, like inclusions or fractures, treat it with a bit more TLC. Get yourself a bowl of warm, soapy water, grab a soft brush (not the one you use for scrubbing the dishes, mind you), and give it a gentle hand wash. Think of it as a spa day for your gem. Ahh, luxury!

And here's a fun tidbit: Rubies are the birthstone for all you July babies out there! Plus, they're the stars of the show for two major marriage milestones, the 15th and 40th anniversaries. If you're looking for the perfect gift to celebrate your love, consider a Ruby. It's like wearing your heart on your sleeve, or in this case, on your necklace!

The World of White Gold

Let's dive into the world of White Gold! It’s not just pure Gold; it’s Gold hanging out with other metals like Silver, or Palladium. Depending on the mix, White Gold can take on different shades. The term "White Gold" covers a range of colours, from pale yellow to slightly brownish, to even a hint of rose.

When it comes to the exact mix of metals, there are a couple of recipes. One is the Gold-Palladium-Silver combo, and the other is Gold-Nickel-Copper-Zinc. Heads-up: some folks might be sensitive to nickel, especially with prolonged wear. It's like that one friend who's great at parties but can get on your nerves if they stick around too long.

White Gold from the EU usually leans more towards the Gold-Palladium-Silver mix. For vintage pieces or preloved gems, I give them a makeover with Rhodium to keep them looking fresh and shiny. Pro tip: avoid taking your White Gold jewellery for a swim, especially in pools with lots of chlorine. Chlorine can speed up the fading of that Rhodium plating. Nobody wants that!

Shipping: The Glamorous World of Parcel Patience

Alright, sparkle enthusiasts, let's talk dispatch and delivery. I’m a one-woman powerhouse, tirelessly bringing you the finest jewellery. While I aim to dispatch your glittering goodies the same day, my stock is as limited as my patience for non-sparkly things. Most pieces are shipped from my legion of talented smiths and suppliers to me on order.

UK Domestic Shipping: Fast but Fashionably Late

For my lovely UK-based customers, your sparkles will typically waltz their way to you in about 5-7 business days. Quick, but not quite instant gratification. Think of it as joyous anticipation before the big reveal—I’m not Amazon, darling!

International Shipping: The Waiting Game

For my fabulous international friends, channel your inner zen master. Shipping times can vary wildly, anywhere from 5 to 30 business days. Customs clearance is a thing, you know. Patience, darling. Good things (and sparkly ones) come to those who wait.

Out of Stock? Not Out of Luck!

If the piece you’ve fallen in love with is out of stock, don’t fret! It’s available for order with a lead time of 4-10 weeks, depending on which of my brilliant suppliers is crafting your new favourite accessory. Just drop me a line about your heart's desire, and I’ll do my absolute best to meet your needs.

So, there you have it. Whether you’re waiting a few days or a few weeks, remember: great things (and truly fabulous jewellery) take time. Ready to add a bit of sparkle to your life? Slide into my DMs, and let’s make it happen!

💍✨ Thanks for swinging by – your presence is as precious as these gems! 💎✨
