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. We may need to request additional identification for security reasons.
8. Ring Sizes
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. This can vary depending on ring size and metal type.
8.2. Wrong Size
If you have ordered the wrong size in a standard item you may return it to us for an exchange within 30 days if item is in its original condition with tags attached if applicable. Delivery times on the exchanges vary depending on stock availability. If your preferred ring size is out of stock there will be a lead time of approximately 6-8 weeks on average. We may offer re-sizing at our discretion*, however there are costs involved.
*Certain rings cannot be re-sized including eternity style rings, channel settings and tension settings, 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 vary depending on the metal type and number of sizes up or down.
We provide jewellery packing with each order including a jewellery presentation box for your rings, earrings, pendants etc. The style and material of these boxes may be subject to change without notice depending on stock availability. Upon the purchase of multiple items such as earrings and pendants we may use a single presentation box, if seperate boxes are required for each item please let us know. Postage costs are applicable for additional presentation boxes required after the initial delivery of your order.
10. Bespoke Items
Items which have been made especially to the customers requested specification are excluded from cancellation, returns or exchanges, see section 19 for details.

13. 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.
14. 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.
15. Item Description
All sizes and weights quoted are approximate and may vary slightly in a finished item, sizes are quoted to the nearest 0.5mm. Occasionally mistakes can happen with price or product description. We are not obligated to fulfil orders for items priced incorrectly or with errors in the description or specification. Gemstones are natural materials and colours will vary, we will do our best to supply gemstones to the customers preference but variations will occur and we are limited by the materials available at the time of order.
16. 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. Photography lighting can also affect colour or shade so images will show jewellery in a brighter than normal light. Monitor settings also vary between computers. Product images are large to provide detail and do not represent the size of the actual item, pay close attention to the items dimensions.
17. Safety Disclaimer
Products are not recommended for children under the age of 5 years. Jewellery purchased for children should be worn under supervised conditions and all products should be stored out of the reach of toddlers. We will not take any responsibility for the use and safety of our products after purchase. This does not affect your rights in terms of replacement of faulty goods.
