A brief history of micro mosaic jewelry:
Micro mosaic jewelry became popular during the European Grand Tour period
(17th-19th Century). Members of wealthy families would travel around Europe
taking in the sights and cultures of several different countries. Italy was a
very popular tourist spot as it had a long and prestigious history in arts and
culture - a favorite subject in aristocratic circles. It was also a famous
glass producer, and Italian craftsmen quickly turned their glass making skills
to making stunning miniature micro mosaic pictures for their rich visitors.
Flowers, birds and architecture were a very popular subjects. Each piece of
tesserae (little hand-pulled glass tiles) was hand cut by the artist and
painstakingly set in place. No two micro mosaic pieces are the same. You are
buying a little piece of history that is truly a one of a kind.

Shop Policy
We don't accept returns, exchanges or cancellations unless one or more of the
following terms are met. If you have any questions please contact the shop
prior to purchase, as all sales are final.
Please understand that antique and vintage items are not in “like new”
condition. They will sometimes bear the scars of age. All items are examined
before listing to make sure there is no excessive or detrimental damage to the
integrity of the items. Some may contain very minor flaws (small scratches,
dents, fleabites, repairs, etc.), that we endeavor to mention in the
descriptions that will appear highly magnified in the photos. We take close-up
pictures to show the finer details and condition of items. Please note every
item is described accurately and pictures are part of the description. We
describe to the best of our knowledge and state if it has any issues to our
knowledge. Colors may vary on items due to individual screen monitor color
tones and can look different on your computer. Returns and exchanges are not
accepted due to these monitor color differences.
If the item has been damaged in transit, which is out of our control, it will
be resolved by the buyer and seller through a USPS or Shipsurance insurance
claim. Your money will be fully refunded by the USPS or Shipsurance when the
USPS or Shipsurance insurance claim is settled. If you have an issue with
damage to your item upon receiving it, you must contact this shop within 24
hours or receipt of shipment. Contacting us weeks or months after purchasing an
item with an issue does not warrant a return or a refund. A damage request
return must be initiated within 24 hours of USPS delivery as shown through the
tracking number assigned to your delivered package and must be mailed back
within 3 days of receipt, exactly as received and fully insured.
We take great care when shipping your item and pack items in appropriate boxes
and bubble wrap etc. If by chance your item was damaged in shipping, for
insurance purposes, photos of both the item and the packaging are required to
authorize the return. Please hold onto both until you receive further
instructions, as in some cases USPS may require you to take both to your local
post office for inspection before returning them to us. Additionally, the

exchanged. This is non-negotiable. If you are not comfortable with this, please
do not purchase the item. By purchasing the item, you agree to all
return/exchange terms provided here. The only time an item is eligible for a
full refund is if we have sent the wrong item to you by mistake or if the item
has been grossly misrepresented in both the photos and listing description.
All authorized returns absolutely must be returned in exactly the same
condition as when it arrived. This includes bows, ribbons, jewelry boxes,
bubble wrap, plastic baggies and tissue paper all in reusable condition. Do not

return price.

insurer will require a signed, sworn affidavit. Failure to do so will
invalidate cause for refund. Returns on international orders must have an
