Testimonials

Hi, I just happened across your site while getting ideas for my wire wrap gemstones and sea glass.

The fact that you give away information, don’t insist personal information, has bought my business already.

To add to the joy (yes, I’m prone to hyperbole but I’m absolutely enchanted with your business model), you add stone treatment information rather than burying it somewhere.

It’s very important to me to be able to tell my customers the what’s been done to their stones, the quality, source and composition of the gems they buy.

I believe I’m the only vendor to have the FCC and AGIA disclosure booklets available at any festival I’ve attended.

You have a customer now and, if OK, I will use your page on stone treatments, with proper attribution of course, as a handout at my next festival the end of this month.

Brightest blessings,

Liz

Do you accept returns?


We accept returns within 14 days of the shipping date if merchandise is returned in its original condition.


If your order falls below the free shipping amount your refund will be adjusted for the shipping fee. This occurs when the merchandise you return adjusts your total purchase to less than $39.


If the returned items modify your total such that it falls into a different discount code, this will also be factored in. If you wish further clarification, please feel free to email us


Some returns over 14 days are accepted but must be pre-approved. They will include a 20% restocking fee if we are able to accept the return and can only be refunded with a store credit.


Our SUPER SALE and Close Out items are not refundable, nor are any items purchased during one of our store-wide sales.


Return postage is the purchaser's responsibility.

 

 

 

 

Do you have a catalog or showroom?


We are strictly an online store and do not have a printed catalog or showroom.


Texas Magpie is a sole distributor of our gems and sells at trade shows. Please check the show schedule to see if and when we will be in your area.

 

 

 

 

Do you have a disclaimer?


Why yes we do!


The information presented on our site is accurate to the best of our knowledge. We do not misrepresent our products and apologize for any mistakes that are inadvertently made.

 

 

 

 

Do you backorder or take special orders?


We don’t backorder merchandise since our inventory is constantly changing. We only sell high quality, hand selected gemstones which means we can rarely replace stock. I recommend buying it when it is available in the quantity you need and then being surprised if we get more. I know we will be!


Our clients find their jewelry sells well when using our higher quality and unique pieces as opposed to "designer" quality a lot of fabrication houses must use. That said, once in awhile, we can reorder some lines and trust they will be up to the quality we carry. It never hurts to ask about specific items.

 

 

 

 

Do I have to order online?


Magpie Gemstones can take your order off-line if you prefer. Email us or give us a call at 509-826-5569.
