Items are usually dispatched within 2 -3 working days. We will send pieces on a tracked and insured service (usually UPS) and send you a tracking link once it has been sent.
Usually antique or second hand items are exempt from VAT / additional taxes and we will send a certificate of antiquity with items where appropriate. However please note we are not responsible for any delays in shipping or customs, or any additional local taxes or fees.
Please check the customs and import duties for your country.

CUSTOM ORDERS: RE-SIZING AND CONVERTING
Please note that items that have been re-sized or customised in any way are non-refundable.
Some of our jewellery comes with accredited gem certification, and if so, it will be clearly marked in the description. If a piece is not certified and you would like it to be, we can apply for certification for you. There is usually a small non refundable cost to do this of approximately £50, but we will confirm for each order.
PACKAGING / BOXES
Unless stated in the description, items are not always sold in the pictured box. All items are wrapped in a presentation box and in a black jewellery box.
With antique and vintage jewellery, it is very difficult to exactly measure stones without taking them out of their mounts. With closed back pieces it's even harder. However, we use specialist tools which give us very close measurements, but it is why our descriptions usually say stone sizes and measurements are approximate. If you want your stones certified or measured in a different way, please get in touch by emailing: email@example.com.
We do our absolute best to correctly date items, identify stones and their cuts, and give all known facts about our pieces. Dating is not always an exact science, which is why some of our dates are 'circa'. Any mistakes or omissions are purely accidental.
Please take note of the measurements of a piece of jewellery. Items can sometimes look larger in close up photography, or look a different size on different people.
CONDITION OF ITEMS
Please be aware that everything on the site is antique and vintage. By virtue of that fact, they all have some degree of wear. When we state the condition is 'good', it is good second hand condition, commensurate to an item's age and it is reasonable to expect some level of wear. If there is more significant damage or wear we will state it as clearly as possible.
