The Ruby Lane Advantage - Quality Assurance
Every Ruby Lane shop is pre-screened by our in-house team of seasoned art and antiques professionals, and must meet specific quality and professionalism standards before opening for business. This means more security for you. All open shops are required to follow an ongoing, standard set of quality guidelines to help ensure that all items you see for sale are genuine, and accurately represented.

Ruby Lane Shops are some of the most respected e-commerce shops on the Internet, and we've designed a rating system so you can buy with confidence from any Ruby Lane shop.

To help insure buyers' confidence, we've developed a rating system based on completed sales as follows:

Platinum: 1000 or more sales
Gold: 100 or more sales
Silver: 25 or more sales
Bronze: 5 or more sales
New or Unrated: Fewer than 5 sales. All of our shops, whether rated or not, must adhere to the same strict quality guidelines in order to remain open on our site. All new shops are unrated.

Our Service Pledge
Customer satisfaction is my priority. I always try my best to keep my customers happy by maintaining good communications, keeping them informed on shipping dates, and providing careful packaging for shipment. Any problems that arise are quickly and fairly resolved, although I am proud to say they rarely occur.

Items purchased with a money order, personal check less than $50, or Paypal will be mailed the next business day (barring unforeseen circumstances). Items purchased with a check will be mailed 10 days after deposit of the check to give it time to clear the bank if the check amount is over $50. Fragile items are carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and packed in packing peanuts.
