These are the terms on which we sell all goods to you. By ordering any of the goods, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. You can only purchase the Goods from the Website if you are eligible to enter into a contract and are at least 18 years old.
The description of the goods is as set out in the website, catalogues, brochures or other form of advertisement. Any description is for illustrative purposes only and there may be small discrepancies in the size and colour of the Goods supplied due to the product photography. This does not affect the size of a ring ordered or chain length in physical form from the description, it is referring to the size of the picture on your screen.
In the case of any goods made to your special requirements, it is your responsibility to ensure that any information or specification you provide is accurate.
All goods which appear on the website are subject to availability.
We can make changes to the goods which are necessary to comply with any applicable law or safety requirement. We will notify you of these changes.
We may contact you by using e-mail or other electronic communication methods and by pre-paid post and you expressly agree to this.
We will not store your credit card details or give them to a 3rd party.
Basis of Sale
The description of the Goods in our website does not constitute a contractual offer to sell the Goods. When an order has been submitted on the website, we can reject it for any reason, although we will try to tell you the reason without delay.
The order process is set out on the website. Each step allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting the order. It is your responsibility to check that you have used the ordering process correctly.
A Contract will be formed for the sale of goods ordered only when you receive an email from us confirming the order (Order Confirmation). You must ensure that the order confirmation is complete and accurate and inform us immediately of any errors. We are not responsible for any inaccuracies in the order placed by you. By placing an order, you agree to us giving you confirmation of the contract by means of an email with all information in it (ie the Order Confirmation). You will receive the order confirmation within a reasonable time after making the purchase, but in any event not later than the delivery of any Goods supplied under the contract.
No variation of the Contract, whether about description of the Goods, Fees or otherwise, can be made after it has been entered into unless the variation is agreed by yourself and us in writing.
We intend that these Terms and Conditions apply only to a contract entered into by you as a consumer. If this is not the case, you must tell us, so that we can provide you with a different contract with terms which are more appropriate for you and which might, in some respects, be better for you, eg by giving you rights as a business.
Price and Payment
The price of the goods and any additional delivery or other charges is that set out on the website at the date of the order or such other price as we may agree in writing.
Prices and charges include VAT at the rate applicable at the time of the Order.
You must pay by submitting your credit or debit card details with your Order and we can take payment immediately or otherwise before delivery of the Goods.
We will deliver the goods, to the Delivery Location by the time or within the agreed period or, failing any agreement, without undue delay and, in any event, not more than 30 days after the day on which the contract is entered into.
In any case, regardless of events beyond our control, if we do not deliver the goods on time, you can (in addition to any other remedies) treat the contract at an end if:
a. we have refused to deliver the goods, or if delivery on time is essential taking into account all the relevant circumstances at the time the contract was made, or you said to us before the contract was made that delivery on time was essential; or
b. after we have failed to deliver on time, you have specified a later period which is appropriate to the circumstances and we have not delivered within that period.
If you treat the contract at an end, we will (in addition to other remedies) promptly return all payments made under the contract.
If you were entitled to treat the contract at an end, but do not do so, you are not prevented from cancelling the order for any goods or rejecting goods that have been delivered and, if you do this, we will (in addition to other remedies) without delay return all payments made under the contract for any such cancelled or rejected goods. If the goods have been delivered, you must return them to us and we will pay the costs of this.
For purchases from outside the UK, you may need to pay import duties or other taxes, as we will not pay them.
If you or your nominee fail, through no fault of ours, to take delivery of the goods at the Delivery Location, we may charge the reasonable costs of storing and redelivering them.
The Goods will become your responsibility from the completion of delivery or Customer collection. You must, if reasonably practicable, examine the Goods before accepting them.
Risk and Title

This is a distance contract (as defined below) which has the cancellation rights (Cancellation Rights) set out below. These Cancellation Rights, however, do not apply, to a contract for the following goods (with no others) in the following circumstances:
a. goods that are made to your specifications (rings made to size);

Subject as stated in these Terms and Conditions, you can cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

Effects of cancellation in the cancellation period
Except as set out below, if you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, excluding the costs of delivery.
Deduction for Goods supplied
We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (ie handling the goods beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods: eg it goes beyond the sort of handling that might be reasonably allowed in a shop). This is because you are liable for that loss and, if that deduction is not made, you must pay us the amount of that loss.
Timing of reimbursement
We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you any goods supplied.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
