Our inventory is precious, fragile and irreplaceable. There is always a risk of damage or loss during transit. For this reason, we make every effort to insure that you understand the actual size, state and condition prior to purchase. We guarantee the authenticity of every bead and provide a comprehensive description. Please take to an account, that the photos are much larger than the actual item, giving it a grainy appearance due to the close up view, and make beads look being in worse condition that they really are. For real and more accurate representation the customer should print (or digitally minimize) the photo to actual size of the bead. We encourage customers to ask as many questions as they like. All of these steps are designed and implemented to prevent returns. As an exception, we allow returns within 1 week following receipt for beads only. Necklaces are not returnable. We ask that customers contact us before initiating any return shipments. Additionally, all items returned must be insured (at the customer's expense) to the full value. All items must be returned in the same condition as when it was shipped to the customer. A full refund will be issued minus shipping, insurance and a flat fee of $25.
