I usually ship within 1-2 days, always by USPS first class and always with delivery confirmation in the US so you can track the shipment. If you need something sooner, let me know before purchase and I can calculate the cost and change the shipping on the item. For domestic items I only charge for the first item, it doesn't cost me any more to put a number of items in the same package.
I currently accept paypal, Etsy gift certificates and credit cards through direct checkout.
I am willing to reserve a piece for up to three weeks.
Returns & exchanges
As I said above, returns are accepted within 7 days of delivery for any reason. If a piece arrives damaged, send me a photo and I will refund all costs and pay for return shipping.
I try to price my cabochons competitively but you'll notice that some are priced a bit higher. This is either because the cost of the raw material was higher, or the cab is one of my favorites and I don't mind keeping it around.
