Can I purchase more than one of any particular item?
All the jewellery at Charms of Light has been individually handcrafted. Owing to the natural variations in all gemstones, each piece is unique—one of its kind, in colour, shape and design. Please see below for more of an explanation:
♥ Pendants ~ Each pendant set in sterling silver is strictly a "one-of-a-kind" piece. In other words, the photo you see will be of the exact piece of jewellery you will receive. If you see something you like, purchase it today—there will never be another exactly like it again!
♥ Necklaces, Bracelets, Earrings ~ I sometimes create more than one of these items. In these cases, you may receive a different piece than the one shown in the photo. Where there is only one available, this will be mentioned in the item description.
♥ Healing Art Gift Cards are available as single cards, or packs of 5 and packs of 10.
You can order more than one of any jewellery design. However, as with all gemstones, there will be slight variations in colour and patterning. If you require more than one of any particular piece of jewellery, please contact me before placing your order.
Can I purchase more than one item?

Can I place a wholesale order?
No. I do not mass produce any of the pieces available at Charms Of Light. Sometimes there may be more than one piece available but unfortunately, not in wholesale order amounts.
Can I request a piece of jewellery in my own choice of or gemstone?

How can I find a gemstone with the “right” properties for me?
You can read about the special qualities of specific gemstones under Gemstone Healing Properties. If you are still unsure as to which stone would best suit you, or need more thorough advice, please see Consultations.
Why do some gemstones looked chipped or blemished?
All gemstones are natural occuring rock forms. The appearance of the odd small blemish or small flaw within them are all part of their natural beauty. Each gemstone type has its own particular hardness. Sometimes, the process of tumbling, polishing and cutting the gemstones doesn't always cover up these natural blemishes. They are perfectly normal and not damaged in any way, and have retained their natural healing energy.
Are my personal details kept private?
Your privacy is very important to me. Your name will never be shared with any third party and any information you send me will be kept strictly confidential.
Will wearing gemstones cure my health?
It is important to remember that healing is not the same as curing. Healing is helping the body, or mind, to become stronger and consequently better. Always see your doctor if you have nagging health problems or serious injuries—healing with gemstones, Reiki and Distant Healing complements, but is not meant as a substitute for medical, or psychological, diagnosis and treatment when needed. See *Disclaimer.
