RETURNS & CANCELLATION POLICY
If you change your mind about your purchase and want to return your item, please contact us by email within 14 days of receiving your goods to request a return. The item must be returned to us unworn and unaltered, in the original presentation box with the tamper-proof security tag still intact and undamaged for a full refund,
Items should be returned to us using Royal Mail Special Delivery shipping with full insurance. Please remember that until the item is received by us, you are still liable for the goods so we strongly recommend that you ensure the correct insurance cover is in place when posting. We are not liable for any associated shipping and packaging costs for this type of return.
All bespoke services such as sizing will be exempt from the returns policy
If you have used our bespoke sizing service and you decide to return the item, the additional costs of resizing the ring will not be refundable. You will be entitled to a full refund on the cost of the item only, not on the additional costs of sizing. For example, if you purchase a ring for £200 and have the ring sized for an additional £40, if you decide to return the item to us you will only be entitled to a refund on the cost of the ring at £200. No refund will be given on the £40 resizing service (sizing costs vary depending on item, please contact us for a quote).
If you have placed an order for items that have not yet been dispatched, please contact us by email as soon as possible to cancel your order and receive a full refund.
Returns will not be accepted after 14 days.

Please contact us by email at with details of the item you are looking to part exchange and we will be happy to respond with an offer of exchange. To assist us in making an offer, we kindly request that you supply clear, detailed photographs of the item where possible.
