Terms and Conditions

PRODUCTS AND DESCRIPTION

Every effort is made to give as accurate an image and description of all products as possible. All jewellery produced by Vicky Callender Jewellery is individually handcrafted and so there will inevitably be slight natural variations within any one design. This means that the jewellery you receive will not be exactly the same as featured on the site. Every effort is made to ensure that jewellery is as a close a resemblance as possible to any featured image. You will be wearing a beautiful and unique piece of ethically crafted jewellery.

PRICES

All prices on our website are quoted in pound sterling (£s) 

The prices for my jewellery products will be those shown on the site at the time your order is placed. 

PAYMENTS

Payment for goods, packaging and postage must be paid in full before any goods are dispatched. Please note: this excludes Klarna, where only your first payment installment is required before shipping.

Bespoke/custom orders will be paid through the website. Before I begin handcrafting your custom order, I will create a personalised bespoke order product listing, (found in the bespoke order section of our online shop) with a 50% deposit amount to be paid and I will email the link to you. After the deposit amount is paid, your listing will be updated for the final balance payable upon near completion of your order. The balance of the price together with any packaging and delivery charges will be advised to you on completion of the order by sending you a new link to your bespoke listing with the sum payable.  Your bespoke handcrafted jewellery will be sent on cleared payment of the full balance due.

Orders placed via the website are managed by third party provider Stripe. Stripe transactions are processed and powered by Stripe. We also offer Klarna payments. Both providers are completely safe and secure and only take from you the information that is required to process your card payment safely and securely. Klarna will handle your payment installments and it is Klarna who will let you know the terms of any required split payments. 

I cannot be held responsible for any charges incurred by you from your Credit Card company or bank in relation to processing of any order made with us. Please note that if, for any reason, your card payment is not authorised by your bank/credit card company I will not be able to proceed with your order and it will be cancelled.

A contract between you and Vicky Callender Jewellery will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and despatched to you. This does not affect your statutory rights.

SHIPPING & HANDLING

Some of my jewellery, particularly one off pieces is/are in stock and ready to ship. Many of my pieces however, are handmade to order and will usually require 2-3 weeks to handcraft and hallmark, (where hallmarking is required) particularly at busier times of the year. A certain amount of stock within a design will have been handcrafted and hallmarked in advance of selling and so readily available to ship as soon as possible and within 1-2 working days of purchase- this does not include weekends or bank holidays. The shipping and handling time frame may be altered and extended at busy periods to 3-5 working days. The website homepage will be updated to reflect any changes in shipping and handling times.

Please allow up to a month to receive a custom order/bespoke item. I will keep you closely informed of time frames for bespoke orders up and till completion. If you have any queries, please use the 'Contact Us' form or drop me a direct email: [email protected], or telephone: 07968714663 

FREE UK SHIPPING
