3. HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
3.1 If this is your first purchase on our Site you will have the option to register and create an account with us using your email address and you will also be asked to create a password. You must keep this password confidential and not disclose it to any third party. You will then be asked to input your address. The address that you register with must be the address that the card statement is sent to, however you can use a different delivery address if you so wish. If you have already registered with us you may enter your sign in details to access your account.
3.2 Once signed in or registered, as the case may be, you must select your preferred method of delivery (if any delivery charges are payable these will then be added to the amount you will be charged), confirm you wish to make an Order and consent to the Terms of Sale. You will then be asked to confirm your delivery address and input your payment details.
3.3 Once you have finished compiling your Order, you will be asked to confirm that your Order is correct. If it is not correct, you can revisit your Order and correct the mistakes before confirming and submitting your Order to us. It is your responsibility to ensure that your Order is correct before submitting it to us.
3.4 After placing an order via our Site, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (the dispatch confirmation). The contract between us (the contract) will only be formed when we send you the dispatch confirmation.
3.5 The Contract will relate only to those jewellery whose dispatch we have confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other jewellery, which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such jewellery has been confirmed in a separate dispatch confirmation.
3.6 In the event that prior to the Dispatch Confirmation, we find that we are unable to satisfy your order for any reason (such as falling levels of stock) we will attempt to make contact with you in order to offer you any available alternatives.
3.7 We do try to make sure that all information on the site is correct all the time but sometimes mistakes are made. In the event of clear error, please see clause 9 below but note for now that we reserve the right to cancel your order even after sending you the dispatch confirmation, right the way up to the point at which you accept delivery.
3.8 Where we have the jewellery in stock, we will take payment from you immediately. However, from time to time we may provide you with the opportunity to place an advance order on jewellery that we have yet to receive into stock. In these circumstances, we may offer you the chance to pay a deposit in order to secure your order. Once we receive the Product in question, we will check it for quality purposes and if we are satisfied, we will take the balance due and issue the dispatch confirmation.
3.9 Jewellery displayed on the site is shown in full colour, but computer monitors and screens vary so we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on screen will exactly match the colour of the item in question.
4. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
4.1 Your order will be fulfilled by the delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation or, if no delivery date is specified, then within a reasonable time of the date of the dispatch confirmation, unless there are exceptional circumstances. For more information, please see our Delivery & Returns Policy.
4.2 Faulty jewellery will be sent for repair within one month of purchase but only where we are satisfied, on inspection, that the product in question is faulty and that the fault has not arisen out of normal wear and tear. Damaged jewellery will not be accepted as returns under any circumstances. If a repair is not possible then an exchange may be offered.
4.3 We will only refund shipping costs where the cause of the return is our fault, e.g. the product is faulty or is not what you ordered. In all other cases, we will only refund the purchase price minus the shipping costs. Please refer to our refund policy.
5. RISK AND TITLE
5.1 The jewellery will be at your risk from the precise time you sign for delivery or someone else does this on your behalf.
5.2 Ownership of the jewellery will only pass to you when we receive full payment of all sums due in respect of the jewellery, including delivery charges, or at the precise time you sign for delivery (or someone else does this on your behalf), whichever is the latter.
6. PRICE AND PAYMENT

6.2 These prices include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due as set out in our Delivery & Returns Policy.

6.4 Our site contains a large number of items and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the jewellery listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Product to you or, if this information comes to light after we have taken payment, we will refund the difference to the card that you have used for payment. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you of such rejection.
6.5 We are under no obligation to provide the Product to you at the incorrect (lower) price, even after we have sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a miss pricing.

We will not dispatch the Product(s) until we receive payment in full.
6.8 For payment by card, all credit or debit cardholders and bank account holders respectively may be dependent on authorisation and authentication.
