Terms and Conditions

The placing of an order constitutes an acceptance of the following terms and conditions.

Delivery Policy
We only dispatch goods once we have received full payment there are no exceptions to this. To view a list of the forms of payment that we accept please view the payment and pricing section of our terms and conditions.
We Reserve the right to change postage rates at any time without prior notification.
We will endeavour to dispatch our items anywhere in the world although due to the fact that we are located in the UK we cannot dispatch items to the following countries: Iran, North Korea and Burma. This is because of UK, EU and other international embargoes that prevent UK based businesses from exporting to these countries. This list can be changed without prior notification and we will not be liable for any loss because of embargoes imposed on countries that customers are located in.
Delivery Times
An e-mail will be sent by us once your item has been dispatched as long as valid e-mail address has been provided to us. We cannot be held responsible for e-mails not arriving. Items sent via Royal Mail standard 1st class postage and 1st class recorded postage can take between 2 and 3 working days to arrive and all orders will be dispatched before 2PM on the first working day that the order is received. Due to the number of items that we have for sale on our website we may occasionally sell out of items. We cannot be held responsible for delays in delivery if items are not in stock when it says that they are on the website. During busy times deliveries can take longer than 2-3 days. If an item is urgent we recommend paying for next day delivery.  
  Royal Mail Special Delivery offers a guaranteed next day delivery service so long as the order is placed before 2PM and the item is in stock and doesn’t need any additional work to be carried out on it i.e. ring sizes.

  International delivery times vary considerably and can take anything from 5-14 working days for the item to arrive.
  Once an item has been dispatched we are not liable for any delays in delivery times whether this is due to adverse weather conditions, industrial action by Royal Mail or any other event that is outside our control and could negatively impact upon the scheduled delivery time of an item.

If an item says that delivery takes 2-3 days we will endeavour to dispatch as soon as possible but this delivery is just a guide and it can sometimes take longer. If an item is required urgently please let us know and we will expedite a delivery as quickly as we can.

If Special delivery is selected for an item that says delivery takes 2-3 days it doesn't mean that it will be sent out the same day as the order is placed and it can take longer but we will endeavour to dispatch the item as quickly as possible. 
Lost Items
Items sent to addresses within the UK are not considered lost until 14 Working days have passed. Working days are classed as Monday through to Friday excluding those days that are Bank/National Holidays.
Items sent abroad are not considered lost until 30 working days have passed. The same definition of Working days applies to International deliveries as to domestic UK deliveries.
