Shipping & Returns



Pre-owned jewelry and collectibles often have imperfections. Unless we state it is in new condition please refer to pictures for more detail or contact us before you bid. Unless noted we do not clean or repair any items we sell. All items will be in the condition we received them in and may have stains, scratches and/or tarnish. We recommend that if you bid on an item that exhibits scratches, stains or tarnish that you have the item professionally cleaned to return it to a better condition. Photographs will be the best way to determine imperfections, if you need more information contact us before you bid/buy.

Returns Policy

You may return most items within 14 days of delivery for a refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper. However, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).

** Due to a change in Paypal Returns / Refund policy - They no longer refund transaction fee's - this will be deducted from the final refund amount**

In order to avoid these fee's please use any other of our methods of payment - they are more consumer friendly!

If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item.


We want to make sure your item reaches you without incident! We track and confirm each item we ship and we require signature confirmation on all items over $100.00. We also add insurance to many of our shipments, we try not to leave anything to chance. 

Our shipping rates include these additions based on their sale price; and they are not optional. We do our best to guarantee the item that leaves our store is in the same condition when it arrives.
Most items will be carefully rolled in protective bubble bags, securely taped inside an ultra durable Indestructo Mailer and sent via USPS First Class Mail. We have never had an item damaged in shipment this way. For listings of high value we use USPS Priority Mail.

Please also note that the shipping rates for many items we sell are weight-based. The weight of any such item can be found on its detail page. To reflect the policies of the shipping companies we use, all weights will be rounded up to the next full pound.
