Once we receive your order and payment in full, you will be sent a confirmation email. Please check your “Junk” box and add email@example.com to your contacts to ensure you don’t miss any email order updates.
All Australian deliveries are tracked using Australia Post parcel post tracking service. All orders within Australia are delivered FREE via parcel post. Items are usually dispatched by the next business day and take 2 to 5 business days for delivery.

Australia Parcels for orders over $100 are sent via registered post, which requires the recipient’s signature.

All international parcels are sent by international registered post.
You may opt for postal insurance at checkout. If you choose not to purchase postal insurance, the package will be shipped at your risk. We are not responsible for any loss or damage once the package leaves our warehouse and you indemnify us in this regard. For this reason, we highly recommend that you purchase postal insurance at checkout covering the full purchase price of your order.
Shipping to the United States costs $12.65 for international Airmail with Signature on Delivery. To arrange international shipping elsewhere, please contact us for a postage quote.
The buyer is responsible for all import duties and taxes payable.
Payments are processed using your PayPal account, Mastercard or Visa credit cards. We also accept bank transfers and cheques. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more details about paying via direct deposit or cheque.
Since credit card and PayPal payments are transmitted via a third party provider (PayPal), Bumbles Vintage will never see or have access to your credit card details. PayPal is a leading payment processor who offers fast and secure online payment options. Your financial details will be securely kept by PayPal.
We never disclose buyer’s details to any third party unless required by law.
Please note that vintage and antique items are not brand new, which means some signs of wear should be expected. We seek to provide all our jewellery in excellent vintage condition. We do not sell items which are broken or which have pieces missing. If an item is particularly rare or unique, we may still offer it for sale if it is scratched or has other minor flaws, however any defects will always be noted in the description.
To ensure customer satisfaction, we offer a 3 day full money back guarantee. Please see below for details on returns.
Many collectors refuse to polish their pieces as they value the natural patina and tarnishing that forms over time. All items displayed on the website are sold in the exact same condition as they are sourced. We never polish or refurbish pieces. Any silver or gold can be polished, however polishing is completely up to you. We do not offer a cleaning service in house; this can be done by your local jeweler.
Even though many of the items we sell are stamped and some hallmarked, we test every piece to ensure its fineness. If a piece does not pass the scratch/acid test, it will be noted as “fashion” jewellery. For items that do pass our tests, if there is no hallmark, the piece either never had one to begin with or it has been worn down over time.
Please take note of the measurements listed on the website. Items may appear larger in images than they are in real life. Photographs are taken up close to give buyers a good view of each piece. We try to measure each item as accurately as possible. Please use the measurements provided as approximates only to give you a guide.
We aim to provide accurate dates for each piece using our knowledge and research. Jewellery that is not marked is very difficult to date and descriptions of same are therefore to be taken as estimates. Items which are hallmarked can be dated more accurately.
If any item does not meet your expectations, we offer a full money back guarantee within 3 days.
Once you receive your item and you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it to us within three (3) days for a refund.
Who pays for postage?
If the item is lost in transit, please contact me to start an investigation with Australia Post. Please note that I will not issue a refund if the tracking shows that the item has been delivered.
You may cancel your order for a refund or credit (your choice) if your item has not been dispatched. You will be refunded/credited within two (2) business days of your cancellation. If your item has already been dispatched, you will need to follow the return process above once you receive your order.
