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
My Pledge is to strive to describe the items as accurately as possible, including dimensions, age if known, any defects, wear, or manufacturer markings. I try to do as much research to identify my items as I can and if I find it in a reference book I will give you the name and page I found it on. I pledge to have clear and precise photos that show you all of the flaws as well as the beauty of these cherished treasures you may purchase. I pack carefully and try to make sure your treasured find arrives safely. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need more information about one of my items or know something about one of my items you think I might learn from. I expect you as the customer to be as honest and true as I am when I deal with you.
