Bejeweled Emporium was born from a love and passion for vintage jewelry.
In the beginning, Bejeweled Emporium was not bejeweled at all.
My internet venture began way back in November of 2000 on ebay and encompassed all things vintage and collectable.
Like many things in life, it evolved over time. It grew from a few auctions here and there to hundreds of listings each month on several online venues and then finally to a very carefully curated niche of antique, vintage and contemporary jewelry.

Please note that all of the antique, vintage and estate jewelry sold here at Bejeweled Emporium is sold "as is." These items are not new and have been worn and loved by their previous owners. They will show normal wear. Though I try to note any flaws and often get the opinion of professional jewelers, note that some items may require buffing, polishing and/or minor repairs.
Please note that the item in the photographs may be larger or smaller in actuality. The photographs do not represent true size. Please check the description for physical dimensions and message me if you have any questions.

Making an Offer
I do not respond to offer/best price/discount requests.
Alterations & Repairs
I do not reimburse for sizing, alterations or repairs of any kind for any reason.
I no longer offer sizing services. For the perfect fit, sizing is best done by your local jeweler.
Returns/refunds are not available for items that have been altered or sized.
Purchasing Vintage Earrings
All of the vintage earrings sold here at Bejeweled Emporium have been steam cleaned and sanitized using a professional sanitizing solution made specifically for jewelry.
Because of this cleaning and sanitizing process, earrings are non-returnable for hygienic reasons.
Caring for Inlay Jewelry
Remove your inlay jewelry before washing dishes, showering/bathing, swimming or working with your hands.
Also avoid exposing your inlay jewelry to lotion, chemicals or extreme temperature changes and prolonged exposure to water.
Inadvertent "banging" or sudden impact of the stones may damage the stones or cause them to fall out.
DO NOT try to adjust your inlay bracelets.
If a stone falls out, keep it and have it reset by an experienced silversmith. If you need recommendations, feel free to contact me.
Due to the delicate nature of inlay, Inlay jewelry is non returnable.
Multiple and additional photos are taken of each and every item prior to sale and prior to shipping. In many cases I video the packaging process so that we are both protected if an insurance claim becomes necessary. I am also able to positively identify any damages or differences to an item after shipment for this reason.
This helps assure that you receive the item that I sent in the same condition as advertised, and helps assure that if there are any problems, that I receive insurance claim reimbursement by being able to prove that the item was sent in good condition.
Clear, unaltered photos may be requested prior to a return agreement.
