No, we do not have a showroom or a retail shop in London. We are a lean, online-only operation which means that we pay much less rent and salary than our high street competitors, which contributes directly to our very competitive prices.
As we do not have a physical presence, you cannot see the pearl jewellery before you purchase them. However you can return the item with no questions asked within 14 days of receiving them, and you can exchange them within 6 months of your purchase of any other item you'd like in our collections. As our items are of very good quality and beautiful design, we are seeing consistently less than 1% (yes, indeed!) returns rate since our website was launched 5 years ago. We have very high customer satisfaction rates and are proud to work hard to keep it that way.
All of our pearl jewellery, including those on special offer, enjoy 14-day no questions asked returns policy and 6-month exchange policy as well as quality guarantee. If you wish to return or exchange an item, simply drop a line to our customer service email address: firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number and item ordered, one of our customer service team will get in touch within 2 hours, and guide you from there. Returning an item is very simple, all you need to do is to post the item back to us and we will process the refund for you within 24 hours. Upon refund, a receipt will be issued to you as well. Please note that refunds can only be processed to your original method of payment.
Generally we advise our customers to have the item dispatched to an address where someone is able to sign the parcel - we are obliged to dispatch all our items through recorded delivery or special delivery due to the high value of our products. You can use a different dispatch address from your billing address, of course.
In case no one is able to sign the parcel, the postman will leave you a delivery card with the information needed for you to either pick up the item at your local post office, or to arrange for a re-delivery online. Re-deliveries are free, although if you need the item to be re-delivered to a different address, a small fee will be collected from you by the Post Office - instructions are very clear on the delivery cards.
If you have any issue receiving the parcel, please get in touch with us and we can retrieve your parcel tracking code for you and help you locate it. Don't worry though, it is very rare for our customers to have any issue receiving their purchases.
Yes we can - simply enter your gift recipient's name and address as dispatch address when you check out. When we see that the recipient is not the same person as the paying customer, we will automatically issue a receipt without the price tag with the item. A copy of the receipt with the price will be sent to the paying customer's email address as a PDF. Of course if you have any special instructions please drop us a line at email@example.com once you've placed your ordre and we will do our best to assist you.
For all orders dispatched within the UK, free recorded delivery is automatically included, you will see this as the 'UK standard delivery' option for an extra 5 pounds. You can of course choose the 'Express & Insured' delivery option if you wish, which will see your pearls insured to their full value and the delivery will take no more than two working days. When you chose the 'Express & Insured' option, we are sharing the cost with you - if you send the same parcel yourself via Royal Mail Special Delivery (which is what we use), you will notice that the price will be higher than the 5 pounds we charge you for the same service.
For all orders dispatched outside the UK, if the purchase is over 80 pounds, the delivery come free as well. For orders less than 80 pounds, a reasonable delivery charge applies - again, we will be sharing part of the delivery cost with you.
Express and Insured option comes with a 5 pound extra fee and we will send your item with Royal Mail Special Delivery service with the item insured to its full value. We are sharing the delivery cost with you when you choose this option: if you send the same parcel yourself via Royal Mail special delivery you will notice that the price is higher than 5 pounds. Choosing 'Express & Insured' option also means your item arrives faster - 2 working days instead of 3 - 4 working days with the standard delivery option.
Another benefit of the 'Express & Insured' option is, if you are unable to sign for the parcel, Post Office will keep your item for up to two weeks waiting for your collection, instead of one week in case you chose the standard option.
