2.8 OUR STANDARDS: Our custom made jewellery items and our handmade items are made to a very high standard using good quality materials. We do not plate our custom made or handmade jewellery unless plating is requested. Our steampunk jewellery range is made from various materials including from actual watch parts and thus may contain sharp pieces. The various materials of our steampunk jewellery may include plated alloys, bronze and epoxy resins and glue; please contact us to enquire before placing an order if you are uncertain. Our steampunk jewellery is not recommended for children.
2.9 Sizes and Lengths: All of the sizes we give on our website are approximate. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have purchased the correct sizes. If you have purchased a ring or any other item and after receiving it you decide need a different size, you will need to cover your own postage costs for returning the original item and you will need to cover our postage costs for sending out the new item; international buyers this may include any customs, duties and/or tax charges (you will be responsible for all charges).
SECTION 3 DELIVERY AND CUSTOMS:
3.1 Please also see our delivery & returns page for information on timings and costs of delivery, and for our international customers please also see section 5 of these terms. We will try to deliver the goods or services within the times indicated but in general our delivery times and dates are for guidance only.
3.2 For security reasons, we prefer to deliver the goods to your billing address where your credit/debit card is registered. Note that if you paid via PayPal we will only ship to the shipping address 'confirmed' by PayPal. We always send our items by signed for delivery and/or fully tracked, see our delivery and shipping page for more information. You are responsible for making arrangements to receive the goods and making sure that someone is available to sign for them. If the goods are held at the post office or other delivery company's depot because no one was available when the goods were delivered then it is your responsibility to collect the goods within the specified time frames by the courier / post office. If your package is unclaimed and returned to us, we will either refund the cost of the item minus the 'actual' shipping fees, or you can pay to have it re-shipped. A refund will not be issued until we receive the items back. Note that the 'actual' shipping fee is usually the full cost that we incurred to package and post the item(s), and for international buyers this could also include customs or taxes.
3.3 Jewellery we post within the UK by Royal Mail Special Delivery is tracked and insured. Compensation entitlement for international shipping may vary depending on where you live so we recommend that you enquire with us prior to ordering, or you check with Royal Mail prior to ordering.
3.4 We do not offer compensation for delayed packages. It is your responsibility to notify us in a timely manner if you don't receive your package by the expected delivery date; we would class a timely manner to be within 10 calendar days of an expected delivery date. Outside of this timeframe we might not be able to help you.
3.5 International Orders if you choose an express or guaranteed delivery service you acknowledge that there is still the possibility that customs may hold your package which could cause delays, and this is beyond our control. In all cases, for buyers outside of the UK it is your responsibility to check that there are no customs restrictions on importing jewellery or gemstones to your country. Please note that any duty or taxes incurred by your parcel being delivered overseas, you will be responsible for. It is your responsibility to pay any import costs, such as VAT, duties, and clearing fees; this also the case if you return an item to us. As the buyer you will be responsible for any return documentation and/or costs; failure to do so may incur UK customs duties which will be deducted from any refund. Refunds will only be given upon the safe return of items (please also refer to our refunds policy and section 5 of these terms).
3.6 For circumstances outside of our control it might not be possible for us to deliver to some countries. Should this happen we will contact you.
SECTION 4 ORDERS:
4.1 Orders shall be accepted at our sole discretion but are normally accepted once credit/debit card authorisation has been confirmed. Please keep your "confirmation of order" e-mail for your records. If for any reason, we are not able to fulfill an order, we will notify you by email. We always try to keep our site fully up-to-date and where an item is out of stock our site should prevent you from placing an order. However, it may be the case that an item has sold off-line (for example, at a market or festival, or over the phone) just prior to your purchase. In the event that an item is out of stock when you placed your order we will contact you and arrange a refund. In no circumstances will we be liable to you for additional amounts if we are unable to fulfil an order.
4.2 Orders for custom made items: if you have commissioned us to make a custom piece jewellery, we may at our discretion offer the first payment by way of a non-refunadable deposit and/or design fee. If we agree to this then the outstanding balance will need to be paid after the design or sculpt process prior to casting. Note that any deposit or design fee paid is non-refundable as soon as the process begins, which is usually upon receiving payment either in full or payment of the deposit and/or design fee.
4.3 Goods supplied are not for resale unless you have an approved wholesale account with us (currently we do not offer wholesale/trade accounts).
SECTION 5: ORDERS FOR DELIVERY OUTSIDE THE UNITED KINGDOM
5.1 If you choose to access our Site from outside the United Kingdom, you are responsible for complying with local laws, if and to the extent that they are applicable. We do not represent or warrant that any Service(s) on our Site is appropriate for use or available in locations outside of the United Kingdom, or that it complies with any legal or regulatory requirements of such other locations.
5.2 Delivery outside the United Kingdom may be subject to import duties and taxes. You will be responsible for these. We have no control over such charges and cannot advise you as to what they may be, although your local customs office may be able to assist. For deliveries outside the United Kingdom, you will be regarded as the importer and it is your responsibility to comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which the Services are to be delivered. Cross-border deliveries may be subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities. Please also refer to the 'delivery and customs' section above.

We try to deliver your items quickly and it may not be possible to stop your order. We will not be able to cancel your order if it is for a custom made or made to order item.
6.2 We do not accept returns or offer refunds on earrings due to hygiene reasons.
6.3 Under current UK Regulations you can cancel an order fourteen days from receiving your goods.

Please refer to our ‘Returns, Refunds and Cancellation Policy’ for further information.
6.4 As per Returns Policy we also do not offer refunds for custom work once completed or for completed made to order items, but should you receive a defective item or if we have made an error then we will work with you to try to rectify the problem.

6.8 DEFECTIVE OR DAMAGED ITEMS & WARRANTY
(a) Should you receive an item that is damaged or not what you ordered, please contact us as soon as possible (within 48 hours) so we can help to resolve any issues. Please also refer to our refunds policy. For most of our jewellery we offer a replacement or repair service for jewellery from stock purchased from us that develops a manufacturing fault within the first 6 months of the order. For our custom made items and items made to order and handmade by us at our workshop we offer a free repair within the first 12 months of receipt if the item develops a manufacturing fault; all of our items handmade by us are clearly labelled as such either within the items title or within the item description. If you have any queries please get clarification from us prior to making a purchase. In house repairs are usually completed within a 15 working day turnaround.
(b) WARRANTY: jewellery from stock has a warranty for the first 6 months from the date that you receive the order (the delivery date). Jewellery Handmade To Order (made to order) and Custom Made Jewellery we offer a full 12-month warranty on workmanship, which commences from the date of receipt (the delivery date).
(c) Any third party repair or alteration of the item voids the warranty. Warranty is also void if items have been damaged by careless handling, normal wear-and-tear, misuse, or damaged during transit and delivery.
6.9 All items that are returned as faulty are assessed by us, and items displaying damage as set out in 6.8(c) are not considered to be manufacturing defects and as such the items will not be accepted as faulty; we may offer a repairs service for such items and there is usually a small charge for this service to cover the cost of the repair along with any shipping costs incurred. International buyers if you need to return an item to us for repair you will be responsible for all return shipping charges, including any customs fees, duties or taxes. If we determine that there was a manufacturing fault we may at our discretion reimburse reasonable shipping costs as long as the costs are agreed with us prior to returning.
