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
Items are carefully and knowledgeably described, and any flaws cheerfully and fully described and photographed in close-up. We've shipped over 40,000 packages with no damage, and will pack your items the same way that we'd like to receive ours. We love to ship quickly, and since we have a small, friendly village Post Office minutes from our door, shipping is a pleasure that we never delay. Very occasionally, there will be a delay of a day, possibly two, if my husband is traveling for business, or we are away for the weekend.
