Customers are responsible for any customs charges / taxes which arise.
Refunds and exchanges:
We only offer well cared for items that are accurately described. In the unlikely event that a customer is not 100% happy with their purchase/s we will refund all the purchase price (less all actual shipping costs, bank, transaction & customs charges & taxes) on return of the item.
Customers are our priority and we will always ensure an excellent level of customer service.
However, we must be informed within 14 days of the receipt of the item that the customer wishes to return the goods. The goods must be returned within 28 days of their receipt and in exactly the same condition as they were at the time of shipping (e.g. the item/s can not have been modified, taken apart, or damaged in any way).
All that was included in the parcel - for example - the item purchased, the historical fact pack, promotional information, the gift tag and the gift box must be included and a tracked shipping method must be used with the correct insured value. We must be informed of the tracking reference. The gift box, gift tag, promotional information and historical fact packs must be returned in the same pristine condition in which they were received, so that they may be used again.
Items being returned from international customers must be clearly marked in large clear printed type that the contents of the parcel are 'UNWANTED MERCHANDISE BEING RETURNED TO THE SELLER' to prevent unwarranted fees being levied.
If we incur taxes or import fees resulting from a returned item being incorrectly labelled (or other reason) these will be deducted from the refund.
Items returned outside of the 28 day period or without any prior notification of intention to return within 14 days of receipt will not be accepted.
In the unlikely event that an item arrives damaged, please return it within twenty eight days for a full refund. Please notify us of your intention to return the goods within fourteen days of receipt. On receipt of the damaged item we will make the refund. We pack very well and securely and so this is highly unlikely.
All items of jewellery / jewelry will be shipped with security tags attached.
Please note that any items that have their security tags removed are not eligible for return, refunds or exchange.
We do not accept order cancellations for various reasons.
However, anyone may return any item for any reason what-so-ever.
Reservations for UK customers:
Our customers based in the United Kingdom may reserve an item and send a cheque to us for the full amount. The reservation will commence once the cheque reaches us.
When the cheque has cleared the reserved item will be shipped.
