Buying jewelry online is probably an act of faith. Believe me, I understand that if you can't see it, feel it, try it on, it is so hard to be sure. That is why I offer a return policy where you can return the piece within two weeks of receiving it, and receive a full credit (less shipping charges, if any) that you can use toward another design within three months. I have never had a return by the way. Also, I will be happy to answer your questions before you purchase, just to be sure it is what you want. You can visit my website and email me. If I don't get back to you right away, please be patient as I may be out collecting seaglass!
