Terms and Conditions

 

Payment Options:
All website payments are made through Paypal and can be made using all major debit and credit cards. If you would rather pay by bank transfer, please place your order by phone (013873 81180) or by email and I will provide details with which to make payment. I am unable to take debit and credit card payments over the phone, but you are welcome to make payment by Paypal.

Voucher codes:
From time to time, you may be offered a voucher code for use in the web shop or at my studio.  These voucher codes can not be redeemed against commissions/remodelling, only against the collections.

Packaging:
Each item will arrive beautifully packaged in a jewellery box.  This will either be a traditional jewellery case (whilst I use up existing stock) or a piece of our recently sourced 100% recycled, recyclable and compostable, vegan, cardboard packaging.  We recycle all of our other packaging e.g. jiffy bags, so please note that whilst the jewellery box will be new, the mailing bag will have been used previously. Wedding and engagement rings and bespoke items £1500 or more will be packaged in a beautiful, handmade hardwood box.

Delivery & Shipping Information:
In the UK, items under £50 can be sent by Royal Mail First Class Signed for at a cost of £5.45. For purchases over £50 Royal Mail Special Delivery provides an insured service, which costs £7.95.  All orders over £500 include free delivery. All contact information and delivery information must be submitted accurately and in full to guarantee that the order is dispatched to the correct address.  If you’d like to place an order, but are outwith the UK, please get in touch for a shipping quote.

Order Times:
If you require an item for a specific date, do please let me know, or contact me prior to ordering – I will do my best to help. Smaller items from my silver collections, e.g. earrings can usually be dispatched quickly. Larger more expensive items, along with rings and bangles that are made to size, will have a lead time of approx 4-6 weeks and bespoke pieces up to 12 weeks. An email will be sent on order, advising you of lead time if your chosen item is unable to be dispatched right away. On dispatch, another email will be sent, along with a tracking number to allow you to check on your item’s progress via Royal Mail. If you have not received your goods within the specified time, please contact me and I will check on the progress of your order. Please include as much information about the order as you can along with the date the order was placed.

Cancellation Policy:
Due to the nature of my business orders must be cancelled or amended within 24 hours if you no longer wish to proceed with your purchase.

Refunds & Returns:
I hope you will be delighted with your piece of jewellery, however if for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please get in touch. Rings, bangles, items that have been customised or engraved, made to your specific size/requirements and earrings, can not be exchanged unless faulty. All other items can be returned, so please notify me and return your item within 14 days of receipt. I am happy to adjust jewellery and resize rings (where possible), charges will apply. Jewellery must be returned in its original packaging and in perfect condition. Refunds are offered at my sole discretion. Items are returned at the buyer’s own cost and risk. It is recommend that you use Special Delivery service to ensure it against loss or damage. If a piece is found to be faulty, I reserve the right to repair or remake the piece. Return postage will be refunded if the item is faulty or if any error is made on my part of the order.

Repairs:
Accidents happen! Please telephone or email me with a description of what is wrong and I will arrange the repair. For repairs due to negligent handling, I will be happy to provide a repair quote.  I am unable to offer repairs to jewellery purchased elsewhere.

Customer Requirements:
When placing your order it is your responsibility to provide me with a concise description of any special requirements you may have.
Rings are made to measure in UK sizes. Please quote your ring size at time of order. A charge will be made for any rings that are returned for re-sizing. If you are unsure of your ring size please get in touch with me for advice. It is possible to send out a professional ring gauge to you.  This costs £55,  however this is refundable on safe return of the gauge.   Please note that not all rings can be resized.  Wedding and engagement rings that aren’t flush set, can be resized free of charge within 6 months or purchase.  If you are at all unsure, please get in touch.

Bespoke Designs:
Bespoke pieces are non returnable and non refundable as they are made to your specific requirements.

Visits to my studio:
Visits to my studio are usually welcomed and positively encouraged. Current restrictions due to Covid-19 are making things a  bit tricky.  For the time being, I’m working via Skype, email and phone. If you’d like to make an appointment, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Alternatively give me a call on 013873 81180 to make an appointment.

Vegan and Vegetarian:
As a vegan, I understand that you’ll want to exclude animal products from your jewellery.  The definition of vegan (as taken from the vegan society website) is that “Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose.”  I use rubber, cotton and alcantara polishing mops, instead of wool and felt, my polishing compounds do not contain animal fats or waxes.  Our new 100% recycled, 100% recyclable and compostable cardboard packaging is vegan  – it does not contain any animal glues.  I’m more than happy to talk to you about any concerns you might have, so do contact me with any questions or queries
