Return items in the same condition as they were received by you - damaged, broken or altered items – including personalised engraving, ring sizing, adjusted chains - will not be accepted for a refund. Please remember you are buying a piece of jewellery, all of which must be treated with care. These items are not suitable to wear whilst gardening, washing / showering, playing sport etc. Foil-backed items must not come into contact with water as this will cause discolouration. Some items offered for sale on this site are antiques in good condition and with careful treatment should remain that way.

On occasion, this poses limitations by the setting or mount. Should you feel unsatisfied with our assessment, we will only consider opinions of a qualified gem grading laboratory. Contact us, and we will discuss your grievance. Any unauthorised testing could result in a delay of your refund or a refund not being authorised.
5d. Orders purchased using the onsite 'Interest-Free Finance' are not eligible for the 100-day return guarantee. Instead, a 30-day returns policy applies.
5e. Earrings may be returned using the 100 Day Return Guarantee, providing the seal has not been tampered with. Should earrings be returned to us, either outside of their original packaging or with evidence that the seal has been broken, your return guarantee will be void.
