We will update you on the lead time of your item/s within 24 hours of placing your order (Monday - Friday excluding public and bank holidays). We only give average and approximate lead times online.

7. International Delivery

It is the customer's responsibility to pay any import taxes/duty applicable in your country, you may want to check if this applies to you before placing your order. For security reasons we can only deliver to the registered billing address on all international orders.

 

8. Ring Sizes

8.1. Surcharge

All prices quoted are based on a standard UK size of approximately size M. Due to additional precious metal and or additional diamonds or gems required, some larger rings may incur a surcharge, where ever possible we will try to keep prices from increasing.

Half Eternity: Some of our half eternity rings need additional diamonds in larger ring sizes. However most of our half eternity rings are considered 40% to 50% depending on ring size unless otherwise stated.

Full Eternity: Full Eternity Ring prices are based on size M, each size up may require additional stones as well as extra metal content.

Plain Wedding Bands: Price is based on metal weight, additional charges for larger ring sizes are generally added automatically at point of sale.

Top set rings: Some rings such as engagement rings with stones set at the top with plain bands may incur a surcharge above size P of approximately: £25 for 9k Gold, £35 for 18k Gold and £45 Platinum. This can vary depending on ring size.

8.2. Wrong Ring Size

If you have ordered the wrong size ring you may return it to us for an exchange, delivery times on the exchange vary depending on stock availability. If your preffered ring size is out of stock and time is an issue, we can offer re-sizing, this is charged at £25 on average.

*Certain rings cannot be re-sized including full eternity rings and half eternity rings depending on the requirements, so please be sure of the ring size before placing your order. Rings can only be sized within reasonable parameters i.e. we may not be able to size a ring too much up or down as this may adversely affect the rings shape or settings. Sizing costs may vary depending on the metal type and number of sizes up or down.

 

9. Bespoke Items

Items which have been made to specification are excluded from returns, see section 19 for details.

 

10. Price Promise

If you find an item cheaper elsewhere we will endeavour to match or beat the price, providing, in our opinion, the following conditions are met. 

  • The items must be identical.
  • The price must be inclusive of VAT and any additional charges.
  • The item must be new and not end of line or returned stock.
  • You must be able to verify the price e.g. written quotation or link to an online product.
  • The alternative item must be currently available.
  • Price promise only applies to goods available in the UK.

 

11. Data Protection

If you currently receive emails from us and decide you no longer wish to receive direct marketing information please contact us, we will then amend our database to reflect your wishes and cease to send such information. You may also click the 'unsubscribe' box at the bottom of our emails.

 

12. Jewellery Price Fluctuation

Precious metal, diamond, precious and semi precious gem prices fluctuate substantially within a short span of time. Whilst we do our best to maintain prices, from time to time we may have to increase our prices. If our prices decrease after you have placed your order or after you have received your goods, you are not entitled to receive the difference back as goods have already been purchased from our manufacturers at the higher price.

 

13. Online Ordering & Security

As part of our continuing effort to protect our customers we may use identity checking services to confirm the identity of the customer. This is not a credit check and does not affect your credit rating. No electronic note, or 'footprint' is left on your record to say that a check has taken place, the information is not sold to third parties.

Anyone entering into on-line credit or other payment card transactions, will be provided with secure server access. The secure server software encrypts the information that you input before it is transmitted to us. To prevent unauthorised access, we follow legally required security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information that you have given to us. This means that sometimes we may ask for proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.

See our Secure Shopping page for more information on how we keep you safe online.

 

14. Price & Description

All prices are inclusive of postage and packaging. All sizes and weights quoted are approximate. Size, weight and product descriptions are given in good faith from our suppliers information. Occasionally mistakes may be made on price or product description. If a product has been prices too low we have the right to remove that product from sale until the price is amended. If it comes to our attention that a customer has placed an order for a product with an incorrect price or description we have the right to cancel that order and refund or cancel any payments made.

15. Product Images

Our product images have been provided to give an example of the final product. As diamond, gemstone and metal are natural materials, they can vary in colour, shade and appearance from the product image.
