I've enjoyed sharing my pieces with you :)

Please purchase with the knowledge that I am NOT a jewelry expert/dealer. I earnestly tried to describe the jewelry to the best of my knowledge through words, photos, approximate measurements, & stone sizes/gm weights.

The pieces are from my personal collection purchased new and vintage. Unless indicated, the pieces have been previously loved, so normal wear is expected.
