Our Service Pledge
I am completely DEDICATED to being there for MY CLIENTS in any way they may need me. I GUARANTEE my JEWELRY for Life and Simple Repairs are Free. MY SHOP is MY LIFE and I consider MY CLIENTS a PART of MY LIFE! THANKS so much for choosing FRENCHEVANGELINEROSE on RUBY LANE!
WELCOME to MY SHOP and I hope you will FIND SOMETHING that will INSPIRE YOU and SPEAK to YOUR HEART, BROWSE and ENJOY! I am sorry but I do not participate in the RUBY LANE SALES nor do I MARK DOWN my Jewelry. I price my Jewelry reasonably when listed and am not able to discount pieces so please do not ask for discounts. I only make a SMALL PROFIT making MY JEWELRY and cannot discount it 50% since that would only reimburse me for even less than it COST for the MATERIALS to make the JEWELRY. I use RARE, and EXPENSIVE ITEMS in MY JEWELRY which determines the Final Selling Price. I do offer Clients a Generous Layaway Payment Period up to a Year. My SHOP specializes in finding LUXURY ANTIQUES, if you LOVE COLLECTING UNIQUE, RARE ANTIQUE JEWELRY or want to start your COLLECTION check out my SHOP. I am always looking to find One of a Kind LUXURIOUS FRENCH, ENGLISH and AMERICAN TREASURES to OFFER in MY SHOP. Here is a little of my history, I was born in NEW ORLEANS, LA. from FRENCH ANCESTRY. My ROOTS are FRENCH ACADIAN and I grew up spending my summers with my FRENCH RELATIVES and MY FRENCH ONLY SPEAKING GRANDPARENTS. I grew up loving OLD, ANTIQUE THINGS because I was surrounded by them here in the DEEP SOUTH! I went to COLLEGE in LA. and HUMBOLDT STATE, NORTHERN CA. and studied ART and ART HISTORY. I Loved COLLEGE because when you are an ART MAJOR the CLASSES required are STUDIO CLASSES and you get to try lots of MEDIUMS of ART to see what you have a NATURAL TALENT FOR or NOT. But My True Love Affair with Jewelry began when I worked at GUMP,S in S.F, they had an Amazing Natural Stone Jewelry Boutique in the Store. And also when I took a Job selling Jewelry at Saks Fifth Avenue in N. O. where I really learned about DESIGN and QUALITY of Jewelry. I always DREAMED of becoming an ARTIST so once I was able to retire I started making and selling my ARTWORK, ARTISAN JEWELRY. in NEW ORLEANS because that was where I was living at the time. Since my ROOTS are FRENCH I especially LOVE FRENCH RELIGIOUS ANTIQUES to use in my ARTISAN JEWELRY and as well I make FRENCH INSPIRED ART JOURNALS. I search for RARE ANTIQUE FRENCH PIECES like EX VOTOS, GORGEOUS PEARLS, BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE and ANTIQUE CROSSES to use in my jewelry. I LOVE VINTAGE and ANTIQUE BRITISH SILVER ITEMS because there QUALITY is AMAZING. I make VERY BEAUTIFUL WRAP NECKLACES made with TINY ANTIQUE FRENCH DIAMOND CUT STEEL BEADS with SECTIONS of PEARLS and or GEMSTONES in the NECKLACE. I try to also find and sell in my work RARE VINTAGE and ANTIQUE PASTE PIECES. I mostly use PEARLS but I do also use GEMSTONES in my jewelry. I recently have added to My Offers for SALE Vintage, Antique Jewelry such as Peruzzi and CINI Jewelry. I am a FULL TIME ARTIST working out of my home. This is not a HOBBY for me but a TRUE CALLING to be an ARTIST. I am 100% available at all times to my CLIENTS since basically being an ARTIST is MY JOB. And a JOB I DEARLY LOVE! I try to make UNIQUE, RARE, TIMELESS JEWELRY and I would describe my STYLE as RUSTIC ELEGANCE. I spend time in my item descriptions giving the HISTORIES of the ITEMS I sell to better educate the buyer on what they are purchasing. In the Past I have sold my ARTISAN JEWELRY and ARTWORK in THE HISTORIC NEW ORLEANS COLLECTION, and the OGDEN MUSEUM both in NEW ORLEANS. I sold on EBAY for a year selling Vintage Jewelry and had 100% positive feedback. You can also GOOGLE ME and many PHOTO LINKS will come up of my PIECES I SOLD on ETSY and as well as FAVORITED by PINTREST LINKS. I had a SUCCESSFUL SHOP on Etsy for 4 years with over 310 transactions and 113 POSITIVE REVIEWS. I decided to OPEN a SHOP on RUBY LANE when 3 of MY CLIENTS suggested this would be the PERFECT LOCATION for my NEXT SHOP because RUBY LANE sells BEAUTIFUL, HIGH QUALITY ARTISAN, VINTAGE and ANTIQUE JEWELRY. I offer as a Courtesy to my U.S. Buyers FREE SHIPPING inside the U.S.A. however at this time I can not offer FREE SHIPPING INTERNATIONALLY.
