About Us****** Special Promotion: "Repeat Customer Discount" If you have purchased any item from me in the past (since 2008) you can qualify for a "repeat customer discount" of 10% off your invoice total. This discount CAN be used on any item(s) in the shop, even on regular SALE items (NOT-Red Tag items). However, it CAN NOT be used on MAKE OFFER items as these are generally discounted 15-25% off or more. If you are purchasing multiple items in addition to a MAKE OFFER item (as accepted), you'll get your "Repeat Customer Discount" on all other items (not the "offer" item), plus you'll get combined shipping on all the items within that order.
***Some Jewelry items-Artisan, Vintage, and Upcycle vintage-include Discount Shipping within USA. Shipping rates have increased this past January (usually twice a year in US). I try to maintain reasonable prices in my shop and am happy to be able to provide some discount on the shipping fees, whenever possible. Multiple items purchased within same purchase order and shipped to same address will get discounted combined rates, usually with discount insurance and/ or Priority Mail upgrade for multiples of regular priced items. The Rubylane checkout/ invoice system has to be manually adjusted, since not automatic, please wait (usually within 24 hours) for corrected invoice. Thank you.
International buyers will enjoy a "pro-rated" discount of shipping and insurance fees (as applicable), the shipping fee will be discounted at an equivalent rate to US Buyers. The ship fee for "small packets" (under 8oz.) is minimum rate $13.88 (USD) via cheapest USPS First Class Intern'l Parcel. I add $1.00 for my costs per package. You would pay minimum "add-on fees" for adding items to same package, usually extra $1.00 for earrings or pins, úp to $2.40 for necklaces & sets per item, plus minimal insurance fees. All prices are USD. International buyers responsible for import & VAT fees of respective countries, and are not included in the shipping fees quoted.
****Please remind me of your "Repeat Customer Status" (what did you buy and when) in the comments section of the purchase order. I will then be able to adjust your invoice to the discounted rates. If you have questions about this or any other offer/promotion, please email me for clarification.

I am willing to take personal checks (From US Banks) and Money Orders (US) on special request. Please use the email feature to inquire AFTER you have placed item(s) on a purchase order and click PayPal as payment. I can't HOLD items for you unless they are on a purchase order in order to wait for payment. I will send you my address with your invoice (adjusted as needed) and change the payment option manually. Be advised that transactions using "traditional payment" generally take up to 10 days to process and then ship due to bank clearances and mailings.
International buyers must use PayPal.
I've been a "collector" all of my life-as a child it was an assortment of the usual "sparkles" and shells, and the unusual "odd" things! I still have a few "Egg Rocks" from the "Egg Beach" in Bar Harbor, Maine (rocks washed down by sea water to a smooth feel and "egg-shape"). In my late 20's, as my career in Costume and Fashion progressed I began collecting vintage jewelry and other "odds and ends" that struck my fancy.
I now have a large collection of vintage jewelry and collectibles that I have meticulously researched. During my travels I have also met many other collectors who have developed great expertise, and I can rely on them for additional information and "unofficial" appraisals.
My professional background is in Fashion, Artisan Jewelry, and Costume Design. I spent a number of years as a Costumer in Los Angeles working in the film and television industry. As an "official shopper," a wardrobe department designation, I was lucky enough to be able to have FUN while I worked, and had a chance to learn even more about both modern and historical clothing, accessories, and jewelry while shopping and designing for film and TV productions.
I opened this Ruby Lane Shop in order to share some of my vintage finds and other collectibles, and as an exclusive avenue to display and sell my handcrafted jewelry. The handcrafted jewelry presented in my Ruby Lane Shop is Exclusive and will not be offered elsewhere.
