THIS AUCTION IS FOR THIS VINTAGE RARE MUSTARD SEED SET INSTEAD OF A CLEAR BOX HANGING FROM A GOLD METAL BOW PIN. THERE IS A GOLD METAL CHARM AS WELL ATTACHED THAT SAYS, IF HE HAVE FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU. IT IS 3/8 BY 9/16 AND THE MUSTARD SEED IN THE CUBE IS 5/16 BY 5/16. THE BOW PIN IS 1 1/8 LONG BY 3/8 WIDE. THE GOLD METAL ON THE BOW PIN IS SLIGHTLY TARNISHED AND IN NEED OF GENERAL CLEANING. THERE ARE NO GOLD METAL HALLMARKS SO WE ARE NOT SURE OF THE GOLD METAL CONTENT OF ANY OF THE PIECES HOWEVER THEY ARE VERY OLD.
We are NOT jewelers and therefore rely on others to give us metal content and stone types unless otherwise stated on the particular jewelry piece. If it is hallmarked or we are sure of the stone and/or metal content we will say it specifically. If there are no hallmarks or makers marks we do our best. If for any reason you are looking for anything specific or have a question about an item, please do not hesitate to contact us. We do back up our jewelry and our auctions 100%. We will take back anything without question that we describe wrong at our expense. Thank you and Good Luck!
**Please note, 1 to 3 digit number at the end of the lead line is a stock number for our reference only. When asking questions you can use Ebay item number or stock number for your convenience. Thank you!
Good luck and happy bidding!

1 - please refund diference ($2.74) on shipping correct is $1.52 and ipaid $4.26 Buyer: Member id yazminwimmer ( Feedback Score Of 185) Dec-15-09 08:18
¦Reply by sterlingcreationsonline (Dec-15-09 08:39): $1.52 shipping + $1.75 insurance + $.50 jewelry box + $.25 envelope = $4.02
BUYER SENT AN EMAIL STATING THEY WOULD REVERSE NEGATIVE IF WE WOULD REFUND SHIPPING. EBAY WAS CONTACTED SINCE BUYER HAS A HISTORY OF LEAVING NEGATIVE AND THEN REQUESTING REFUNDS ON SHIPPING TO REVERSE.
BELOW IS CLEARLY THE FUNNIEST ONE I HAVE RECEIVED TO DATE.

VINTAGE PURPLE FACE FOSSIL WRISTWATCH LEATHER BAND #621 (#350320681873) US $8.00
AUCTION WAS FOR A WRISTWATCH THAT WAS NOT RUNNING, IN NEED OF GENERAL CLEANING, REPAIR AND POSSIBLY JUST A NEW BATTERY. BUYER PURCHASED THE WATCH, THEN EMAILED ME TO TELL ME HE RECEIVED IT AND IT WASN'T RUNNING. SHOCKER, I TOLD HIM WE SOLD IT NOT RUNNING THAT IF HE WAS NOT HAPPY AND WANTED TO RETURN THE WATCH BECAUSE HE MISSED THAT IN THE AUCTION WE WOULD TAKE THE WATCH BACK FOR HIM BUT NOT REFUND SHIPPING. HE INSISTED THAT WE PAY HIM TO SHIP IT BACK TO US BECAUSE IT'S "STUPID TO SELL IT NOT RUNNING AND NOT HIS FAULT HE DIDN'T READ THE AUCTION". WE REFUSED SO HE LEFT NEGATIVE. IF WE SAY THE WATCH IS NOT RUNNING, IT MEANS IT'S NOT RUNNING. NOT READING THE AUCTION IS NOT OUR FAULT. WE WILL TAKE THE ITEM BACK BUT WE ARE NOT PAYING THE SHIPPING FOR BUYERS WHO CAN'T READ.
3 - Item never arrived. Seller has made no effort to make good. Buyer:

BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE GLASS PERFUME BOTTLE WOOD RATT #169 (#350284671119) US $8.00
BUYER APPARENTLY MOVED OVER A YEAR AND A HALF LATER HAS STILL NOT UPDATED HIS SHIPPING ADDRESS ETC ON EBAY OR PAYPAL. HOWEVER ACCORDING TO EBAY BECAUSE HIS EMAIL ADDRESS IS CORRECT THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO. SELLERS BEWARE. THEY REFUSED HIS CLAIM HOWEVER STILL LEFT HIM THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT IT. THERE WAS NO OTHER COMMUNICATION WHICH AGAIN IS WHY EBAY REFUSED HIS CLAIM.

OLD CUFF BRACELET CARVED MOTHER PEARL JASPER JET #369 (#250677286895) US $40.99
BUYERS EMAILS CLAIM ITEM WAS NOT STERLING SILVER. ITEM WAS DESCRIBED AS A SILVER METAL, NO HALLMARKS, NEEDS RESEARCH. BUYER ADMITTED IN EMAIL THAT SHE WAS HOPING IT WAS STERLING SILVER. WE OFFERED AGAIN TO REFUND ITEM COST IF RETURNED BUT NOT SHIPPING. BUYERS EMAILS CAME WITH THREATS ETC. WE REFUNDED HER BUT NOT THE SHIPPING, BUYER WAS STILL NOT HAPPY, AGAIN ILLITERATE BUYERS AMAZE ME, THEY BUY THINGS WITHOUT READING THESE AUCTIONS AND THEN USE THEIR STUPIDITY TO COMPLAIN.
5 - Advertised as ox bone but was plastic. Fell apart within hrs of wearing it. Buyer:
ITEM IS GENUINE BONE, BUYER NEVER CONTACTED US ABOUT PROBLEM BEWARE UNTRUTHFUL
Reply by sterlingcreationsonline (Nov-08-10 08:04):
CARVED OX BONE PANEL BRACELET ORIENTAL CHARACTERS #823 (#250711042972) US $12.59
THIS IS OUR MOST RECENT. AGAIN AMAZES ME HOW BUYERS LIE. FIRST OFF THIS ITEMS IS GENUINE OX BONE. THE BRACELET WAS IN GREAT CONDITION AND DID NOT JUST FALL APART ON THIS BUYER. BUYER NEVER CONTACTED US, BY EMAIL OR ANY OTHER WAY, JUST LEFT THE NEGATIVE. HOWEVER WHEN BUYER LEFT THE NEGATIVE THEY SELECTED THAT THEY TRIED TO WORK IT OUT WITH US. IF THE ITEM HAD BEEN DAMAGED, IT WAS INSURED AND THEREFORE A REFUND WOULD BE GIVEN IF BUYER RETURNED THE SO CALLED DAMAGED BRACELET. NOT TO MENTION BUY CLAIMS ITEM WAS NOT OX BONE AS WE DESCRIBED THAT IT WAS PLASTIC, WOULDN'T YOU COMPLAIN BEFORE YOU WORE IT THAN THAT THE ITEM WAS NOT AS DESCRIBED INSTEAD OF WEARING IT AND THEN CLAIMING DAMAGE. THIS BRACELET WAS AGAIN GENUINE BONE AS STATED.
AGAIN WE ARE WILLING TO WORK WITH BUYERS. NOT ALL BUYERS WILL BE HAPPY WITH THEIR ITEMS, WE ARE SELLING USED, VINTAGE ITEMS ON THE MOST PART. WE DO WORK WITH BUYERS AND TRY TO RECTIFY PROBLEMS. HOWEVER IF A BUYER THREATENS US WITH NEGATIVE, WE WILL NOT GO OUT OF OUR WAY TO WORK BASED ON THREATS.
