🔸I try to do my best to ship my orders as soon as possible ( usually within 3-5 days), but unfortunately I have a chronic condition which may worsen from time to time and limit my ability to work.
However, if I know that I have any urgent or time sensitive orders I will fulfill them no matter what. Do not be afraid to order something urgent - just let me know when you need your order by and I will make it for you or refund you immediately if I know that I am unable to make it by the date you need. I have a strong sense of responsibility when it comes to shipping my orders on time and not letting my customers down. You can count on me as long as I know that your item has to be delivered quickly.
🔴REMEMBER TO LET ME KNOW IF YOUR ORDER NEEDS TO BE DELIVERED BY A SPECIFIC DATE.🔴
🔸 Orders are usually prepared to be shipped EVERY MONDAY unless there is an urgent order. Please ignore the automated notification you receive via email after I print a shipping label - your order is not yet shipped until I physically take it to the post office.
🔸Estimated delivery date provided by Etsy is NOT the actual shipping date: you might receive your order much sooner or in rare cases days later than the initially calculated date. It came to my attention recently that USPS do not update the status of the shipped packages even though I personally handed them over to be scanned and processed. Etsy might not update the tracking information either, so tracking updates are routinely received with a delay of 1-2 days.
✅VIEWING THE PHOTOS, SELECTING CORRECT MENU OPTIONS FOR A “MADE TO ORDER” ITEM:
🔸Each item is made only to order - I do not sell finished mass produced type of items, which I can drop in a mailbox the same day - every piece requires quite a lot of time to work on, so I am asking you to be patient should a delay occur throughout the process.
▪️MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE ORDERING CORRECT SIZE OF ANY MICRO PAVED STYLE RING - IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO AVOID BENDING THE RING AND LOOSENING THE SIDE STONE SETTINGS▪️
🔸Listings generally contain photos of items that have gemstones with the same or extremely similar features and very close in color (unless specified otherwise).
Many listings contain several variations in gemstone color or subtle differences in quality grade, item’s style, choice of finish or material etc., Every variation has a specific featured photo that is linked to it and this corresponding photo best represents each option listed in the menu.
🔸Opal coloring and quality grade is one important example when looking at the linked photo a customer can get a better understanding of what particular color appeals to them more.
Moissanite white color grade or different shades of the same color should be selected based on a photo example as well.
This is a new feature and I hope it will be very helpful to you in selecting your ideal piece of jewelry.
🔸 Because each gemstone is unique your item is going to be unique as well and made especially for you including additional preferences you provided in the personalization section, which is really exciting especially considering that my designs are also original and not found anywhere else.
🔸 Creating each piece of jewelry always requires time, effort and attention to every detail to ensure that it is going to show great craftsmanship at every step of the process by the time the item is completely finished. I treat every order with as much care as I possibly can and check for any possible mistakes from start to finish. This requires a lot of time even with the easiest of items. Even a seemingly simple process of working with the settings that I have in stock requires time and effort. Selecting the right gemstone, inspecting it and making sure it fits the listing description and photos or adjusting a ring setting to the specific size involves a lot of attention and precision work. To set a gemstone into a setting without scratching the rhodium plating is in itself extremely difficult task especially when setting a natural opal which can easily break or chip as a result of too much pressure applied while bending the prongs. Finally the finished item has to be thoroughly cleaned and polished without getting any liquid on an opal, accidentally scratching gemstone or leaving any spots or fingerprints especially on a moissanite surface which might be taken for a defect. Then your item must be carefully packaged and taken to the post office to be shipped 🎁
BEFORE I START WORKING ON YOUR ORDER I PRINT A SHIPPING LABEL, which prompts Etsy to send you an email stating that your order “has been shipped “.
Please disregard that email but keep the tracking information that is included in it. Your order will be shipped soon.
🔴 FOR ALL SOLID GOLD ITEMS processing time is set at approximately at 3-4 weeks as it may require more time to order the supplies. It usually takes less but for some pieces it might take longer than for the others.
🔸I am not always available to work on a custom design items outside of my available inventory due to the fact that I am working completely alone and I cannot possibly manage too many projects at the same time - but it never hurts to ask!
I can customize some things for you that are easy or make minor changes. It might so happen that I have been working on an item similar to what you are looking for or I might come up with an idea, so please feel free to ask any questions you need, but don’t forget to always be considerate and never ask me to make something purely for your entertainment.
💎 All solid gold items are considered “custom orders”
🔸For each gold piece ordered I will have to purchase a new gold setting in your size or your style in 14K solid gold, which is quite expensive and is purchased only to fulfill an order I have already received payment for or a financial commitment.
🔸I am a very small size business and cannot have the same accommodating return policy as those Etsy sellers who are in fact large scale factories mass producing their jewelry who pose as individuals selling their “handmade” art on Etsy. Sadly there are a lot of them offering exactly same items sometimes listed with the same stock photos.
🔸Sellers like me who actually work on each piece themselves can’t afford to get stuck with unwanted gold jewelry, so please understand that purchasing jewelry in solid gold requires a financial commitment on your behalf, which cannot be revoked later due to a change of mind or of the personal circumstances. Gold jewelry orders are non refundable and are the financial responsibility of the buyer.
✅ THE PROCESS and MATERIAL, QUALITY STANDARD and OPAL FACTS and SECRETS:
🔸My jewelry style appeals to absolutely everyone featuring the elegance of the modern minimalist or classic influences combined with the high quality of the gemstones I use and professional craftsmanship seen in every design.
🔸I use only authentic, natural, genuine gemstones and precious metals to make my jewelry. GUARANTEED.
🔸 Opal is very unique and colorful gemstone like no other. EVERY OPAL IS CHANGING COLORS CONTINUOUSLY IN RESPONSE TO THE LIGHT ANGLE OR INTENSITY.
This makes photographing them extremely difficult, so YOU MUST READ THIS to learn some typical properties of this gem and what to expect from your opal jewelry.
🔸 The above topics have been moved from the item description section and can be easily accessed via the blog posts on my website KISSEDBYFIREJEWELRY.COM along with other general information about the shop, the gemstones and their features, how I make my jewelry, store policies, return policy in detail, the specifics of my work schedule, new item introductions, limited time sales and more.
✅ CUSTOMER CARE:
🔸 I am committed to the kind of customer care, which recognizes your unique individual style and preferences, which I take into account and I am always open to answering all of the questions you might have. If you need guidance - I am here for you to help you make the best possible choice. I don’t lie in order to sell you the most expensive item I can think of - I only suggest the best possible choice based on your individual preferences and your budget.
I can help you create a piece of jewelry or a matching set by offering you stones from my inventory which best fit your preference and needs. I want your jewelry to be as unique as yourself, one of a kind piece, which you will love and enjoy!
🔸 Another important thing about my shop is that I never use stock photos (unless needed for clarification) computer generated images or photos of jewelry that doesn’t yet exist or use other people’s photos. I don’t offer anything that I do not have, cannot get or do not make (unless something changed without my knowledge)
I only sell products that I myself designed and created from scratch that are professionally produced for my store by my manufacturing partners, and I take my own original photos of every single item before I post a listing. That is why my shop looks distinctly different from everything else. I am trying to keep this standard.
❤️ Each item I create is always made with care, attention and love. This started as a passion and not as a business, and I am really trying to keep it this way.
I really appreciate the opportunity to bring something joyful and beautiful into other people's lives: it is exhilarating to know, that something I made would make another person smile and cherish that special moment in memory when they open their gift box. I also need your support for my self esteem as well as for the business needs, so if you are able to leave a public review for your purchase please do so- I badly need support right now. Thank you very much for choosing my shop, loving my work and supporting my one woman run and owned business that I chose to have instead of getting disability from the government. I believe I can do something better for myself and I would not have been able to do it without YOU ❤️
💙 BY SUPPORTING MY STORE YOU SUPPORT A SINGLE WOMAN RUN BUSINESS WHICH HAS BEEN A DIFFICULT ROAD FOR ME - THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR YOUR ORDER AND YOUR TIME LEAVING ME A FEEDBACK - I AM DEEPLY GRATEFUL FOR MAKING ME BELIEVE IN MYSELF AGAIN 💙

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.

Just contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 7 days of delivery
Request a cancellation within: 3 hours of purchase
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
- If you are dissatisfied with your item due to my negligence, forgetfulness, oversight or confusion I GUARANTEE YOUR MONEY BACK IN CASE I MADE A MISTAKE WITH YOUR ORDER. Just let me know what happened, make sure the item is UNWORN, in its original condition, WITH A SIGNATURE TAG STILL ATTACHED and provide photos or description of the problem, and I WILL REIMBURSE YOU OR WILL PROVIDE A FREE EXCHANGE or REPAIR.
For gold jewelry I can only provide a sufficient repair to correct the issue. Gold jewelry is not refundable unless the item is significantly damaged and it is my direct fault.
Earrings and custom orders are non refundable. Earrings fall under the category of personal items and can't be returned for hygienic reasons.
Unfortunately due to the fact that each item is made to order I cannot accept returns caused by subjective reasons (buyer's remorse) such as changing one's mind, finding a better price elsewhere, returning an unwanted gift (someone buys more than one gift, so the recipient can choose their favorite and later return the rest)etc.,
Only when there is straightforward evidence of my fault in causing a problem, I will issue a FULL refund or provide an exchange (photo evidence is required as proof)
If a problem arises I always help my customers and deal with every situation on individual basis. Please contact me if something is wrong with your order.
MANDATORY 35% RESTOCKING FEE APPLIES TO ALL SUBJECTIVE RETURNS APPROVED FOR ANY REASON.
I set the MAXIMUM processing time of 3-4 weeks but the exact time required to fulfill an order varies greatly depending on a combination of multiple factors both objective and personal.
▪️Processing time is different from the delivery time, which is specified for every shipping method. Upgrading your shipping method to Express does not change the processing time, so if you need your order ASAP, you will have to contact me with a request to expedite your order and make sure that I have received your request and confirmed that I will be able to make your order by the required deadline
▪️I WILL DO MY BEST TO SHIP ALL ORDERS AS SOON AS I CAN, BUT IT IS BUYER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO TIMELY PROVIDE THE NECESSARY INFORMATION REGARDING ANY DEADLINES
-I ship my orders with FREE Priority or Express Mail - depending upon each situation. You can add Express shipping during checkout to make sure you get your item ASAP.
-Every order is fulfilled within the 4 weeks of processing time, but majority of orders are shipped within one week. I also ship NEXT DAY ORDERS - I am very flexible when it comes to processing time.
- Etsy estimates delivery date incorrectly in their tracking info email notification which they send to all customers. I make no commitment to fulfill those unrealistic expectations;
-USPS are plagued with problems this year, so delays are virtually guaranteed, and I am asking you to be understanding that it is rarely me, who is holding up your order.
I DO NOT REPLY EVERY 24 HOURS!
This information is not provided by me or given with my permission. I work only part time.
There are certain limitations that prevent me from working every day as I would like to. I have been suffering from chronic fatigue, which “steals” a lot of my time by making me unable to function and slows me down at every turn, so I am unable to respond to you right away. Whenever I get totally burnt out, I have to take a day off or two to recover and rest. I am the only person who runs every single aspect of this business w/o prior experience, so I am constantly trying to finish prior tasks and I am afraid that this might be mistaken for sign of horrible customer service...
Opal jewelry is EXTREMELY FRAGILE and cannot come in touch with any liquid including water.
Please make sure you DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR OPAL JEWELRY TO WATER!
- Do not wash hands, take shower, do strenuous activity, run errands, clean the house or exercise with opals still on.
- Take off before bed and clean and buff the metal parts regularly to avoid using chemical cleaners.
- Micro paved Jewelry cannot be placed into an ultrasonic Jewelry cleaner due to the shaking, which might cause the tiny stones to fall out.
-Jewelry damaged due to not following the care instructions IS A FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER AND CANNOT BE RETURNED, EXCHANGED OR REIMBURSED.
-“care tips” card is provided with your order.
▪️Each “made to order” piece of jewelry is made especially for you using materials that cannot be reclaimed or sold right away.
▪️Made to order item should never be treated as other purchases and at the very least the value of time and effort that went into creating a M.T.O piece should always be compensated in a case of a return;
▪️I put a lot of effort into making sure my customers are familiar with care instructions and know what to except from their purchase.
That’s why items that are not meeting expectations or damaged due to not reading care tips are strictly non refundable.
▪️35% mandatory fee is withheld from any amount of refund issued for returning any item that is M.T.O.
- YOUR JEWELRY WILL AND SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT FROM THE LISTING PHOTOS EVEN IF THE PHOTOS ARE TAKEN OF THE ACTUAL OPAL
- The truth about this gemstone is that its uniqueness, its ever changing play of color, its brilliance, color intensity or fire pattern cannot be captured on a still image. A natural fire opal can look green on one photograph and red on the other with every subtle change in light angle or its intensity.
- There is a SIGNIFICANT amount of attenuation present when you look at an opal under natural daylight compared to its artificially exaggerated brilliance seen under the artificial indoor light;
- it is NORMAL for opals to change their appearance, so please keep this in mind that even the same opal NEVER LOOKS THE SAME!
I use only high quality precious metals and natural gemstones in creating my jewelry. The quality standard for this shop is set to be especially high.
I use my best quality stones for creating items offered at this shop, so each and every item is not only made to order but is typically made with perfect or nearly perfect gemstones, with excellent time consuming level of craftsmanship seen in each unique design.
▪️I do not use stock photos for a reason: I design everything myself, and take my own photos of the items upon completion of the item so you can be sure that the jewelry sold through this store is going to look exactly as pictured with the exception of gemstones, which are all unique and will never look the same.

This necklace is definitely bright and cheerful, and compliments both the honey opal ring (see separate review) and the lovely companion earrings. All three items are light and delicate, but their fierce bold colors remind you of the fire within ... never underestimate the power and beauty of opals! Thank you, Julia!
