General

By completing and submitting an electronic order, you are making an offer to purchase goods which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract.

These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of Guernsey and you and we agree to use the Guernsey courts if there is any dispute between us.

Pricing and Payment

Prices are checked regularly. However, if we find the price has changed or that there has been a pricing error when we receive your order we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed at the correct price.

All Jewellery is despatched from the Island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands usually via Royal Mail. The Island of Guernsey has the facility to pre pay the VAT, for UK based customers, on their behalf to ensure a speedy and efficient delivery. This procedure is mandatory on individual items purchased through the Website up to and including a value, excluding VAT, of £2000. In the instance where your order total is greater than £2000 for multiple items (For example if your order consists of a pendant at £1500 and earrings at £1500 giving a total order value of £3000 then we shall despatch the items separately with pre paid VAT at no extra delivery charge). The facility to pre pay the VAT on individual items over £2000 is not available and in this instance we will charge to you the price excluding VAT, the goods will then be despatched using the usual delivery methods and UK customs will contact you prior to delivery to obtain the applicable VAT amount at the current UK rate. Please note for items despatched where the VAT is not pre paid the usual delivery times quoted are void and delivery may be delayed as a result.

All payments must be made at the time of ordering. Payment for your order must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro cards. If we are unable to accept your order for any reason then we will, at our option, either not debit your credit card or refund any money paid by you in respect of that order. We will not dispatch your order until we receive payment in full.

For payment by card, all credit and debit cardholders and bank/building society account holders respectively may be subject to authorisation and authentication. If the issuer of your payment card or our service provider refuses to, or does not for any reason authorise or validate the payment, we will not be liable in these circumstances for any delay or non-delivery in respect of  your order as a result.

By providing the relevant information to us, you specifically authorise us to transmit or to obtain information about you from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your name, address, telephone number, debit or credit card details or credit reports, to authenticate your identity and delivery address for the order, validate your payment card and obtain authorisations for your payments for your order

Please note orders will only be despatched once we have authorisation from your payment card issuer. We will aim to inform you as soon as possible if there is an issue with the payment authorisation process or with any validation checks for your order. We will not accept your order if payment is not authorised. Where there are issues with the authorisation process or validation checks, your delivery may be delayed as a result.

We do not have to accept your order, and in particular, we will not accept your order if:

  • we do not have the goods in stock/the goods in stock appear to be damaged;
  • your payment is not authorised;
  • there is an error on our Website regarding the price or other details of the goods;
