Antique Gypsy rings have been around for hundreds of years. The antique gypsy ring stone setting was said to allow the gypsies an easy way to mount the gems that they found in their travels. The antique gypsy ring setting is defined as being one continuous piece of metal that gets thicker at the top, this continuous metal setting gives the gypsy ring is distinctive look. The top is dome shaped and the stones inserted single gemstone in the middle or in triples with starburst chasing. There are no prongs, making the shape smooth and clean.

I make every effort to give accurate descriptions of the items I sell, vintage is an item that is from the past, it is therefore 'used', and as such is likely to have been subject to wear and tear. Nothing is less than 20 years old unless made by me.

However, if you feel that the item is not as described you may request a refund by following the steps below.

By using a 'layaway Plan' you can divide the cost of your item into a number of affordable payments (minimum payment $40). There is no time limit and no interest charges. Simply select the jewellery you like and request a layaway plan with the contact button, let me know how many payments you want to make and I will list that number, each payment will be that fraction of the total sum, the last will include postage and packing. When all are paid I will post the item to you.
Refunds for items purchased on Layaway will be made in identical increments over the same period of time.
Because Etsy is a world wide website and I live inthe UK, each day the value of currency alters in countries outside the UK, and as a result the price of the listings vary accourding to the exchange rate. This can be both up or down depending on the strength of your local currency. For example, a ring may be $100 on Monday $102 dollars on Tuesday and $99 on Wednesday as the US Dollar rises and falls on the money markets.
