Listings Accuracy & Modifications

The prices that we charge for our products are listed on this website. We reserve the right to change our prices for any products and related fees at any time, and to correct any pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. All descriptions of products are subject to change at any time without notice. 

We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice at any time. We shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuation of the Service.

Any discount codes offered are strictly limited to a single-use per customer and / or their address. We reserve the right to cancel any order where we, at our sole discretion, believe any such discount code has been abused. Any discount codes offered may be removed at any time without notice.

The photos in each listing form an important part of the item description, so therefore we ask that you inspect them carefully. All photos are taken in natural light and showcase the detail of each piece. If you wish to have more photos, we are happy to provide them, just get in touch.

Any boxes / props pictured in product photos are for display purposes only and not for sale. You will receive your purchase in a recycled cardboard jewellery box.

 

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours and images of our products on this website. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor’s or any other display screen that you use to view our products is accurate.

 

Our description of the products including an item’s condition and total carat weight for gemstones, where listed, are our opinion and an estimate only.

 

We do not warrant that the quality of any product, services, information or any other materials purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.

 

Guarantee

We do not offer any guarantee past the point of sale. Our items are sold as seen.

 

Antique and vintage jewellery is not new and, in some cases, can by its very nature, be more delicate than modern jewellery. We take a great deal of care in selecting pieces, inspecting them and cleaning them. Our description of the products including an item’s condition and total carat weight for gemstones, where listed, are our opinion and an estimate only. We test all of our items, including gold and gemstones, prior to sale. We do not accept any other view from any other party in regards to the items we sell. We are not gemologists, so therefore cannot categorically say whether a gemstone is natural or synthetic.

 

It is your responsibility or that of any individual who takes into use or ownership any product to ensure they have an appropriate awareness of how to care for and clean any product in a manner which would not cause damage to the product.

We cannot be held responsible for the loss or damage of any element of any product, including, but not limited to, any stones, stone settings, pearls including seed pearls, and their settings, chain / necklace / bracelet links, clasps, glass, metal fatigue. 

Your contract with us relates solely to us providing you with the item as described on this website at the time of purchase. Where we suggest in the description that an item should be possible for resizing this acts as a guide only. It remains at the discretion of any jeweller or individual who you ask to undertake such works as to the feasibility of this.

 

We accept no responsibility and you confirm that you will not hold us liable in the event of an item not being able to be altered in any way whatsoever. Any alteration, repair or any other work, including cleaning for aesthetic purposes, by you or an individual that you appoint to undertake this on your behalf, is done so entirely at your own risk.  

Allergies, Intolerances & Injury

The nature of antique and vintage jewellery, historical resizing of any items, and the methods and materials used in their manufacture can present elements and compounds which may be harmful to individuals who have certain allergies to materials either entrained within or on the surface of our products. This can include, but is not limited to lead, nickel-containing metal, and other particles on the metal.

In purchasing and using our products and services you warrant that any such product or service will be cared for by you in a way that could not present, by negligence or malicious intent, harm or pose a risk to property or life, including but not limited to other adults, minors, animals and the environment.
