Grandma Jean lived to the ripe old age of 94 and kept us laughing all the way.  She often compared herself to a broken-down car who'd spent way too much time at the shop.  She would tell me she's ready for what's next, like she and God were already buddies.  She faced her death with grace, dignity and gumption, just as she faced most things in life.  She was a school teacher, mother of four and a strict disciplinarian.  When I graduated from college she wasn't shy to blurt out: "Anthropology?  What are you are going to do with that?!"  Fast forward about 4 years and my journey into jewelry began, but I never put down my passion for the study of evolution.  Now my focus is the evolution of love.  Love is a very powerful force and was ever present when I once visited my grandmother in the nursing home.  Not realizing who I was due to dementia, she proudly told me, "Did you know my granddaughter Jackie works at TIffany's?"  She then gave me this ring to give to her to fix one of the settings.  I barely made it out of the room before the tears started to pour.  Grandma was never one to throw around a compliment, but in final days she accidentally let me know how proud she was of me.  A compliment I'll never forget.
Please note that our jewelry is hand-made right here in the U.S. Depending on inventory it may take up to 2 weeks for delivery. If your item is a rush order please make sure to indicate this in the comments section and we will do our best to accommodate.

We ship all of our jewelry by UPS. Any items over $5,000 will be shipped insured and must be signed for upon receipt. We are happy to ship lower priced items insured as well at the customer's request. We are also happy to ship items internationally via FedEx. Please note we are not responsible for lost packages unless the item is insured.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL. As we are a small fine jewelry shop based in Brooklyn, NY most of our work is built to order. We stand behind the quality of our work and if you believe there to be any manufacturing issues we will happily fix the item at no cost to you. Did you get your loved one the wrong size? That's ok, mistakes happen. We are humans, not robots. We do our best to go out of our way to make our clients happy and will gladly do an exchange. Thank you so much for shopping small and keeping our jewelry dreams alive!
