Purple Awareness Earrings Amethyst Gemstone Silver Ribbons Handmade

Details

These handmade purple awareness earrings feature amethyst gemstone rounds, Czech druk beads, silver-tone ribbon charms, and crystal-ornmented earring hooks. The amethyst beads (6mm) are faceted, providing a lovely combination of earthy and elegant styling. The Czech druk beads (4mm) are handmade from opaque glass and their purple color is finished with a warm, slightly pink hue. The awareness ribbons are nicely lightweight and shiny silver-plated charms.

Also used in this special pair are TierraCast silver-on-pewter daisy spacers (4mm, made in the USA), small and dainty silver-plated scalloped bead caps, sterling silver rounds (3mm), and Swarovski clear crystal bicones (4mm).

The earring hooks are sterling silver, with their sterling mark on the rear of the wires. I added a clear crystal bicone to each hook, to lend an extra hint of elegance as well as meaning.

Typically, I include clear or clear AB crystals somewhere in my purple awareness jewelry, as making this type of jewelry is always a meditation on my father, who, when elderly, developed serious dementia (regarded as Alzheimer's), which took his life. The crystals represent to me the clarity of mind and beauty of self that Alzheimer's dismantles. They also signify, in a simple way, the hope for a cure.

The design here is classic bead stack, with a bead-capped amethyst round centered on each earring dangle. This is framed top and bottom by split pairs of daisy spacers and purple druk beads. At the very bottom of the dangle is a sterling silver round and at the very top is a triple wire wrap. The awareness ribbon charm hangs from the dangle.

Lengthwise, these are fairly long earrings, approximately 2 inches from the earring hooks to the ribbon charms. My listing includes a measurement photo with a ruler to give you a clear idea of the length.

Pretty, elegantly earthly, and very meaningful, these purple awareness earrings were handmade with care, remembrance of my father, and best wishes for their destined wearer. They come on earring cards and wrapped inside a nice organza bag, ready for gifting.

About the Awareness Color:
Purple signifies awareness of Alzheimer's disease, pancreatic cancer, cystic fibrosis, fibromyalgia, lupus, migraine, domestic violence, Crohn's disease, gynecologic cancers, sarcoidosis, peripheral neuropathy, childhood hemiplegia and stroke, and more

About Amethyst:
A member of the quartz family, amethyst is regarded as a stone of protection that deflects negative influences, lowers stress, and calms the mind. It is also seen as a highly spiritual stone that nurtures inner peace and spiritual awareness. This gemstone has been valued since ancient times. It is associated with the crown chakra, and is the birthstone for February. Amethysts are actually crystals and often have inclusions, clouding, and other interesting elements to them, as well as various shadings of their distinctive purple color.

Materials Used

Faceted amethyst rounds (6mm), Czech druk beads (4mm), sterling silver rounds (3mm) and earring hooks, Swarovski clear bicones (4mm), and silver-plated daisy spacers, bead caps, ribbon charms

Policies

Welcome to Pretty Gonzo! Your visit is valued! I love jewelry, and what I make is the type of jewelry I would wear myself or give as gifts to friends and relatives. Every piece, however simple, is a little statement about the person wearing it, and I always hope that my jewelry will bring happiness to the person destined to wear it.

CLIP-ON and PIERCED CONVERSION: If you wear clip-ons, I can convert any pair of earrings in my shop into clip-ons for you at no extra charge. Just ask! I can also convert any clip-ons to pierced wires.

CUSTOM ORDERS: If you are interested in a custom order, please contact me. I will list your item(s) as "Reserved," including photos.

My shop's GALLERY section contains the listings of my sold items along with photos, so you can see my past work.

-----PAYMENT INFORMATION-----

I accept Paypal. Please note that you can securely use your credit card via Paypal even if you don't have a Paypal account.

If you live elsewhere and are interested in a handmade necklace or wrap bracelet/necklace combo, please contact me.

VINTAGE ITEMS:

Shipping is determined on an item by item basis. Most vintage ships to the United States only. If you live elsewhere, please contact me. I will be happy to help you as best as possible!


-----SHIPPING ADDRESS-----

PAYPAL: If you use PayPal, I ship to your address as shown by PayPal.

Please make sure your address is current. :)

If you are purchasing a gift for someone and have used his or her address for shipping, please let me know at the time of ordering. I will be happy to include a complimentary notecard with your shipment, in which I will write whatever message you would like to send. Also, please make sure the recipient's address is current.


-----SHIPPING METHOD-----

HANDMADE JEWELRY:

United States: Items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking.

Other Countries: Items are shipped USPS First-Class Mail International. Again, you are responsible for any customs fees, surcharges, and/or tariffs.

Earrings are shipped on earring cards in small plastic bags, wrapped in decorated paper or gift bag, and then wrapped for protection in transit. Bracelets and necklaces are shipped in a similar way (but minus the earring cards).

VINTAGE ITEMS:

Most vintage items are shipped First-Class USPS with Tracking. The exception is vintage books, which ship Media Mail unless otherwise stated in the book's listing. Please note that Media Mail can take some time to reach you. I only select this form of shipping to offer you economical shipping with weightier books. If you prefer a faster form of shipping, simply contact me.

INSURANCE OPTION: If you would like postal insurance, please contact me. I will invoice you for the cost of insurance.

IN GENERAL: As someone who has made many online purchases, I know how nice it is to experience quick shipping from a seller. My goal is to ship your order promptly once I have received payment.


-----RETURN POLICY-----

I want you to be happy with your purchase. Always feel free to contact me about an item before buying, as no question is too minor. I'm pleased to help!

Returns are accepted if you contact me within 5 days of receiving the item. Also, I must receive the item no later than 2 weeks after its delivery to you. If you have a situation where this timeframe poses a problem for you, please let me know before ordering. Also, I do allow extensions for holidays such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, as some people buy early.

You are responsible for shipping with tracking (U.S.). Items should be in their original condition with their original wrapping and packing materials. Any earring cards or gift bags should be included.


-----REFUND POLICY-----

Refunds for Handmade Jewelry: I will refund for the purchase price minus shipping.

Refunds for Vintage Items: I will refund vintage items for the purchase price minus shipping.


-----OTHER POLICIES-----

Non-receipt: Tracking provides information on the item's progress to its destination, and I bring my shipments directly to the post office rather than using pick-up. I will do my best to help you if items go astray. Again, always make sure the shipping address you provide is current.

Damage: If an item arrives damaged, please contact me ASAP. I will repair/replace damaged handmade jewelry if you ship it back to me. Also, please see option for postal insurance above. I do pack items well to minimize any problem with damage.


-----COMMUNICATION IS EVERYTHING-----

I'd love to hear from you if you have any questions or comments. So please don't hesitate to contact me.

I highly recommend this excellent seller. I purchased 2 pairs of earrings, and both pairs are beautiful. They arrived quickly in good packaging and wrapped in pretty gift paper.

My wife loves spirals and loved the spiral earrings I bought for our anniversary. As she is a jewelry maker she is pretty particular about what she wears. The packaging was very sweet as well. We'll be back.
