RINGS 3

Please leave a comment with your name, email & item you'd like to order! Colours may vary on computer screens, thanks! Click for larger images.

Ring sizes stated are in US sizes. View Ring Size Chart.

Due to the nature of wear and hard knocks while adorning rings, I will not be accepting returns or refunds for contemporary rings and rings with glued rhinestones, exceptions will be handmade rings.

Vintage costume rings in good condition are hard to find as they were meant to be thrown out as the fashion styles passed, and made with lesser materials than their fine jewellery counterparts. Being worn on the fingers where they are constantly being knocked about or in contact with moisture also wears them down. Therefore please note that most of these vintage rings may have survived from their previous owners but not without visible flaws. Keep rings away from moisture to preserve them.
