How to buy jewelry online: What to know before you shop

Shopping online can be so much fun! No need to change out of your pajamas even (major bonus!) If you're like me, you may feel a little tentative before ever clicking "Purchase" on someone's website, especially to buy jewelry online. Here are a few things to consider before you start shopping:


You see a necklace or bracelet you really love, but not totally sure if you'll like the length? Don't worry! Take a piece of string, a ruler/tape measure, and measure out the length of the necklace or bracelet. Put the string around you, check to see that the length falls on you in a way you like!

If you ever want to double check on a size, shape, or stone before ordering, you can always email me at or send me a message via social! 


Not sure if you should buy sterling silver or ancient bronze jewelry? I personally think both are flattering on everyone + I highly encourage mixing metals! Caring for bronze jewelry can require a little extra attention, but it's a fabulous and affordable alternative to gold. If you want more info on which metals flatter your skin tone, check out this article


Me, Rosa Kilgore! When you buy from me, you are supporting a woman-owned small business in Arizona. I'm proud to have years-long relationships with my vendors and suppliers. I hand-make every piece and stand by it - another reason why my maker's mark is my name! 


Don't worry! If you receive your order and decide that you want to return something, it's no problem. Just send it back within 7 days of receipt for a full refund! Read my policies here


Buying jewelry online can be intimidating, but I want to make it as seamless as possible!

Creating southwest jewelry is my joy and I want to share it with you, no matter where you live. If you have any questions, check out my FAQ or shoot me a text at (928) 421-1102.
