Return Policy

We pride ourselves on customers' satisfaction.  Although it is our intention to display images and descriptions of each item that are true to material, color, size, etc., colors vary with individual monitors and some item details are inevitably missed. We recognize that the buyer is deprived of the tactile and visual experience when purchasing on the web.

Therefore, if you are not satisfied with your purchase, we will gladly refund your purchase price provided that you contact within three days of receipt and that you ship the merchandise back to us within one week in the same condition in which you received it. For your own protection, we suggest that you purchase shipping insurance. We cannot accept returns of jewelry damaged after your receipt. You are responsible for return shipping and insurance. Your refund will be transacted within 3 days in the same manner of your remittance, i.e. credit card, PayPal or check.

A re-stocking fee of 15% will be charged for goods returned after the above mentioned timeline.

If you have questions or concerns about an item you’re interested in, please email us at sales@earthlyadornments.com with your questions and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours, or call us at 707-823-8978.

Quantity Discounts

Much of our bead collection is the result of many hours in thrift stores, closeout warehouses, yard sales, flea markets and similar venues, sifting through boxes of miscellaneous beads and necklaces with a few broken or missing beads all collected more than 30 years ago... Some of our other beads are unused vintage stock, also purchased more than 30 years ago. As a result, quantities of many of our vintage beads are very limited -- and we feel that those beads are all the more special and rare because we can't replace them once they are sold. Given the time invested in seeking them out over the years -- and given that they are irreplaceable -- we are not offering quantity discounts on vintage stock.

We do offer quantity discounts on some new stock that can be reordered. Products available for quantity discounts are listed as such.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about any of the pieces you see -- or any pieces you don't see, because not all of our collection is currently online! We have a large collection of vintage jewelry, beads and components that we have not listed-- so please don't hesitate to email us.

Layaway is available for jewelry purchases over $300. We require 1/3 of the total invoice at inception of layaway, 1/3 in 30 days and 1/3 in 60 days. Please email or call us for arrangements.
