Moonstone is a natural gemstone in the feldspar family of minerals that is well known for its blue shimmering flashes of color. This shimmering effect is called adularescence. Moonstone has a unique crystal structure that creates this optical phenomena. Alternating layers of albite inclusions mixed with layers of orthoclase create a whitish-blue sheen of color as light enters the stone and bounces back. Some moonstones will display tiny dots of rainbow colors.
Moonstone can be found in many places around the world, with the most popular deposits in India and Sri Lanka. It is the birthstone for those born in June.

Earrings are made by wrapping the teardrop briolettes and tiny beads onto our 20G french hook earwires. The drop length is 1 inch measured from the top of the earwire.
All metal components used in this design are 925 sterling silver, 14K gold filled, and 14K rose gold filled.

Measuring for a backdrop necklace:
1) Take a piece of string (common necklace chain lengths are 16, 18, or 20 inches)) and place the center of the string in front of your neck.
2) Bring both ends around to the back of your neck and measure the length that is comfortable to you.
3) Next cut a piece of string 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 inches (or two pieces for a double strand drop) and measure where you would like your drop to fall. Measure the drop length from the back of the neck at the clasp.

Handcrafted Jewelry with a Love for Gemstones
Welcome to Linda's Jewelry Shop! I'm Linda, and my son Joe and I are the owners of our jewelry shop in New Hampshire. We create handmade gemstone jewelry and gifts.
How it all began:
After 23 years of nursing I found myself needing to make a change in careers. I had always enjoyed creating things, so I began making jewelry with gemstones. I loved working with all the different gemstones and metals and found the possibilities for designs were endless!
As things became quite busy, my sons joined in and we formed our family business in 2015. Today Joe and I work together creating all our jewelry pieces. Joe is my go to when stones are hard to set and he has a great eye for design.
What we love about jewelry making:
We love working with natural gemstones and simple designs that bring out the beauty of the stone. There are always more gemstones to discover and more skills to learn in jewelry making. It is one of the remaining crafts that cannot be machine made or mass produced.
We would love to learn more metalsmith techniques next! It is such a rewarding feeling when someone purchases one of our jewelry pieces to give to someone special.
What are we working on now:
We just added dainty gemstone choker necklaces and we have more minimal styles coming with natural gemstones, including simple drops, dangle necklaces, and bar necklaces. Also working on our sister shop, Linda's Candle & Gift Shop with handmade gifts made with natural and organic ingredients.
What we are planning next:
We are will be adding more gifts and gift sets for the wedding party and other occasions and are creating some gift box ideas. We will be hand forging earwires and hoops soon and are working on some designs in sterling silver, gold, and rose gold filled.
Down the road we hope to do a few craft shows and gem shows and make some local connections. We are always adding new gemstones and designs to our collection.

Can I return or exchange my jewelry?
We want you to be happy with your jewelry purchase. If you would like to return or exchange an item, please email us at LindasJewelryShop@comcast.net to let us know.
For returns please notify us within 7 days and return the jewelry within 14 days. Items are to be returned in their original condition unworn and unused in the original box along with the items packaged with your order. The buyer assumes all return/exchange shipping costs.
Do you offer repairs?
Sometimes things happen, like pulling on an earring while combing your hair....or little ones that tug on a necklace chain. Please let us know if you need a repair. We do charge a fee to cover costs to replace missing or damaged items necessary for the repair. If we no longer carry the supplies to repair your jewelry (for instance we may be out of a particular gemstone), we will try to work with you to find a solution. Please return the entire jewelry piece, even broken pieces. The buyer assumes all return/exchange shipping costs.
Do you make custom orders?
We enjoy making custom orders and are happy to design something just for you. But because these items are customized for you and are not something we currently sell in our shop, we cannot take returns on these items.
This does include custom size ring settings because we order the setting specific to your requested size.
How long will it take to ship my order?
Currently we are shipping all orders in 3-5 business days and we are shipping from New Hampshire. We ship with USPS and offer First Class and Priority options. First Class shipping is free for all orders $35 and over. We do add tracking to all our packages.
Custom orders may take additional time. This usually occurs if we have to order certain supplies to make your custom order.
How long is it taking USPS to deliver?
First class takes 3-5 business days on average and Priority mail is taking 2-3 days. Unfortunately delivery delays can occur that are outside of our control.
What if I entered the wrong address?
Please always check the address you entered is correct before completing your purchase. If you entered an incorrect address please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the changes before shipping your item.
If the item ships to the wrong address, it can take quite some time to come back to us. We will notify you when the item comes back and send you a link to purchase another shipping label with the correct address. We are not responsible for items lost due to an incorrect address.
What if I ordered the wrong size?
Sometimes the fit just isn't quite right and you need your necklace or bracelet longer or shorter. Just let us know and we are happy to make adjustments for you. The buyer assumes all return/exchange shipping costs.
How can I make sure I'm ordering the right size?
- The size of each gemstone is provided in the item description section under "materials" or under the "how its made" section.
- We do offer different chain length options for most of our jewelry items. If you are looking for a different length just let us know.
- For measuring necklace chains, the best method is to cut a piece of string and wrap around from behind your neck, bringing both ends in front of you to see what length fits best.
- Our backdrop necklaces have instructions for measuring in the item description under "measuring for a backdrop necklace."
- For bracelets, you can cut a piece of string and measure around your wrist. We advise to allow a quarter to half inch extra for the bracelet to hang comfortably. Adjust the string to how you would like your bracelet to hang.
- If you are unsure of your ring size, any local jeweler can check your size for you (usually for free).
How do I return or exchange my jewelry?
With all returns please notify us first at email@example.com. You can place the jewelry in the box it came in, and place the box along with all packaging items in a bubble envelope. That will protect the jewelry during shipping. We always advise to add tracking to your package because we cannot be responsible for items lost with returns and exchanges, and tracking will help us locate the package
