ABOUT Once Upon A Sparkle
The majority of our products have an element of antique silver. Antique silver is silver that will age by going darker the more it is handled and exposed to the air. The product is not defective. Once Upon A Sparkle does have "polishing silver cloths" for sale that may help to keep your product in good shape.
We advise not to expose your products to water or sweat as this too will have an effect on your products.
Once Upon A Sparkle is an online store only, based in South Australia. Our products are what are generally known as costume jewellery. Our Charm Bracelets and our Key Rings are predominantly hand made. You will not find these hand made products in any stores or anywhere else. We only make 1 of each design, so when it is sold we do not re-create it exactly. We can make something similar but never the same. It may differ by a clasp or the colour or charms but they are never the same. This makes your piece unique and a one only. If we place ready made items on this web site (i.e. products from our suppliers ready made), it will show as "ready made" so our customers will know that we have not hand made these ourselves. We also make other products to your specifications. If you see something you like but it's not in your favourite colour, drop us an email and we will be in contact asap to discuss your specific needs.
Our range has increase a lot and will continue to do so. We have so much to show you please keep coming back to check out our products.
We advise that we use descriptive words such as "gold", "silver", "copper", "bronze", which are meant as a colour description only.
