About Clementine's Bijoux
Our Service PledgeI guarantee the authenticity of all my items and thoroughly inspect and describe each item I offer for sale. I ship items purchased within 3 business days from the time payment is received and process any returns and refunds within 3 business days from the time the item is delivered back to me. I respond to all item inquiries within one business day.
About UsI began collecting vintage and antique jewelry ten years ago and recently decided to turn this hobby into a small business. I enjoy studying and learning about jewelry, from the materials used and the technological and cultural factors that have influenced design and manufacture, to the societal forces that have shaped fashion and related social conventions. To me, each piece of jewelry is a piece of art and a piece of history. These objects are imbued with meaning and sentiment and connect us, from one individual to another, and from one generation to the next.
I've taken care to research and accurately describe each piece of jewelry I offer for sale. Since many collectors prefer to buy pieces in "as found" condition, I typically don't remove patina or repair the jewelry I sell in my shop. As such, most of my offerings are not in mint condition, but have minor imperfections, as one might expect from well-loved jewelry. I make note of any repairs or damage that I can detect beyond light scratches or rub marks resulting from light to moderate wear. The pictures I provide are greatly magnified to help show detail and condition, so please note the actual dimensions that I provide as well.
I do take returns if you contact me to make arrangements within three days of receiving an item and return the item to me in the same condition I sent it in. I insure every item that I ship, to help protect against loss, and I generally require a signature upon receipt to help ensure that your purchase actually makes it into your hands.
I hope you enjoy vintage and antique jewelry as much as I do, and perhaps find a little bijou here that you'd like to make your own. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about my listings. I generally cannot answer questions about the value of items you may already own, as this would require close inspection. I add new items frequently, so check back soon if you don't see what you're looking for today. If you're looking for something specific like a certain style of ring or bangle, let me know and I'll see if I can locate it for you!
