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
Welcome to WhimsicalVintage!

If the item that you're purchasing is a gift, I am happy to include specialty wrapping and/or a personal note or card...simply contact me with details. Gift wrapping and personal note, at no extra charge.

I offer free US shipping on jewelry orders over $25.00. I will do my best with certain jewelry items to offer free International shipping on orders over $25.00. However, due to the increase in International shipping charges, most jewelry items will be calculated by weight. Your jewelry will be packed in a WhimsicalVintage gift box.

All purchases ship within 24 hours (excluding holidays and weekends).

Items will be shipped via USPS first class or priority mail (where noted) with delivery confirmation and shipping insurance. When purchasing multiple items, your order will be calculated based on the sum of all weights. However, once packaged, any overage charged in the total shipping, will be refunded immediately upon shipment.

If you have any questions during the checkout process, please feel free to contact me.

WhimsicalVintage does accept Paypal's "Bill Me Later" option.
If you have a "Bill Me Later" account with Paypal, simply proceed through checkout and choose that option from your Paypal page.

Please keep in mind that a Paypal account is not required for Credit Card checkout - Paypal only handles the processing. Once you're ready to checkout, click on "Checkout with Paypal". This will transfer you to the Paypal Page. To checkout without using Paypal, click on "Don't Have a Paypal Account" or "Continue as Paypal Guest". This will allow you to checkout only using your credit card information - If you have any questions, please let me know:)

Please remember that the vintage dates of these items are based on stamping, signing or labeling, when possible. Methods used to quote dates of unsigned, labeled or stamped pieces are a combination of style, quotes from original owners and research. The items that I acquire are in excellent condition, unless otherwise noted. Occasionally I will pick an item based on it's unique qualities that I feel outweigh any disclosed flaws. Maintaining the integrity of vintage and antique items is very important to me. I price my items based on their collectible value, i.e. signed pieces are more valuable than unsigned, as well as the unique or hard to find qualities that they may possess. Pricing items in this manner will maintain their value for years to come.
My research for dating and pricing vintage/antiques items is extensive - if you have any questions regarding the pricing or dating of a particular piece, please let me know...I will happily provide all research information.
