This is a term used for below-fine condition. They are usually scratched, chipped, worn, tarnished or may be only useful for crafters to upcycle. I normally won't sell average condition jewellery unless it is signed, unique or a very old item.
Item shows more obvious wear, tarnishing or rusting in some areas. Still wearable but aesthetics are usually compromised (lack of lustre, loss of plating on front, heavy scratches etc). Lower prices usually reflect an item in fine condition.
Item shows wear or minor scratches consistent with pre-owned items, aging & dullness or patina (may be uneven) with years of storage for vintage accessories. When worn they still look good. May have light loss of plating, some tarnishing, dulling of rhinestones, or flaws that won't be seen from the front. All these are normal. Sometimes I would list an item as 'good' although it may be under 'very good' because of faux pearl wear which happens with almost all old faux pearls.
Item intact with no broken parts or rhinestones missing. Gently used, light wear, minor scuffs or possessing a desired patina. Any flaws are negligent for when worn, the flaws are not obvious. These items will usually have aging though.
Usually for unworn stock that came on cards or looked like it was never worn, or seldom worn.
All used jewellery are clean and ready to wear unless stated otherwise. Earring posts are cleaned with alcohol. This does not include wholesale or junk lots and will be stated in the description if they have to be washed. You may wish to further clean them as I may miss some spots. New items are usually as is. Verdigris (green gunk on base copper/brass) that has damaged plating will be cleaned off as much as possible.
The black generic earring cards that are featured in the photos are mostly for display purpose, and will not be included for most post-type earrings (pierced earrings), because post earrings arrive better intact when shipped flat. When attached to cards, the posts tend to bend or break. Exceptions are original manufacturer cards when available.

The goodies you see here are personally sourced from USA, cleaned and repaired by me. Some items are consignment-based. I have stopped accepting consignments due to a lack of time and space, but you can still contact me if you have any nice vintage items to sell.
