Policies


I hope that you are always happy with your purchase but in the unusual event that you are not, please apply the following policy:

Refunds/Returns/Cancellations
All my items come with a cancellation/ returns policy in accordance with the EU Directive 97/7/EC and United Kingdom’s The Trading Standards Institute: Distance Selling Regulations (DSR’s)/ The E-Commerce Regulations (ECRs) and are as follows:

• You as the customer have the unconditional right to cancel the order and receive a full refund for the item cost plus any shipping cost within 7 working days, the 7 working days start from the day that you receive your jewellery or the next following working day if delivered at a week-end. This does not apply to custom orders.

• I will refund your order cost as soon as possible after you cancel the order and no longer than 30 working days after the cancelation date.

• You the customer have a statutory duty under the DSR, that throughout the period of cancellation to retain possession of the jewellery and take reasonable care of the items, ensuring that I receive the returned jewellery and that it is not damaged in transit.

• You the customer are responsible for returning the jewellery in its original condition, including gift box and at your own shipping cost.

• Regretfully earrings cannot be cancelled and returned, for hygiene reasons.

• If the jewellery is damaged during the shipping process, please take a picture to show me the damaged piece and packaging so I know how to improve the packing in the future, and also claim the insurance from the shipping company.

• If the jewellery is lost in transit, Royal Mail deems not delivered by 30 working days as lost in transit, I will offer you a replacement piece of jewellery (not exactly the same piece as all my designs are unique in their final form), or a full refund including the shipping cost. I always insure and have tracking numbers on my shipped orders. I cannot be held responsible for addresses entered incorrectly but will do my utmost to track the package down.

• Any refunds will be refunded back into your chosen payment method of PayPal, credit card or bank account.

Custom order terms and conditions 

Your piece will be lovingly made by me, Amy Jennings. Commission lead time is approx 4-8 weeks and commences when full payment has been received and details of the commission have been confirmed.

Deposits are non-refundable, with no exceptions. I do not accept cancellations on accepted commissions. If you cannot complete your full payment for whatever reason, please contact me. In some cases it is possible to put the balance paid towards a future commission.

Custom made items cannot be accepted for returns unless they are faulty.

I make rings in US (numbers) and UK (letters) standard, half and quarter sizes. It is your responsibility to provide your correct ring size when placing your order.

Note: when ordering cluster settings please envisage the width of bezels and prongs between stones. My work is intentionally wabi-sabi in style, which is a personal taste and a reflection of my values, you are paying "top dollar" for a piece of art in the style of the artist. Callirrhoe Jewellery is about rustic, organic textures that tell a story of how it was made, there is such beauty in that. If this is something you appreciate then you will love your Callirrhoe Jewellery piece!

PAYMENT PLANS:
Agreeing to a payment plan means you agree to pay, in full, the balance laid out in a preliminary discussion about your commission. The deposit for your arranged payment plan is due immediately and the first payment is due the following calendar month. Invoices will be sent at the beginning of each month and can be paid at any time during that month. If you are able, you can complete your full payment earlier. If for whatever reason you are unable to complete your payment then regretfully, Callirrhoe Jewellery cannot give refunds on payments already made but please contact me to discuss your situation as it may be possible to use payments already made as credit.

Jewellery Care

Always make your jewellery the last garment you put on and the first thing you take off. Necklaces and rings tend to catch on clothing and can be easily damaged. I will always repair your jewellery but this small practice will minimise any damage potential. Never wear your jewellery during sports or doing rough activities and never keep jewellery in your trouser pockets as it will certainly become damaged when sitting down. I recommend that you remove your jewellery before using any cleaning chemicals, beauty products, washing and showering. This will minimise the potential for damaging your jewellery.

Always store your jewellery so that it is not rubbing up against any other jewellery items. I suggest keeping it in the gift box provided.

If your jewellery is oxidised, the patina will wear away away over time and will eventually reveal a brighter piece underneath. 

If you want to remove tarnish from sterling silver use a soft polishing cloth such as a Sunshine cloth to remove light surface scratching. 

Warranty

You jewellery is covered by a lifetime manufacturer's warranty and will be assessed by me, Amy Jennings of Callirrhoe Jewellery to determine any damage. 

If damage is determined to be at the manufacturer's fault then will be repaired free of charge by Amy Jennings of Callirrhoe Jewellery.

If damaged is determined to be at the customer's fault then it will be repaired at cost to the customer.

All return postage is to be paid by the customer.
