This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following to understand our practices regarding your personal data and how it will be treated and if you have any questions, please just ask.
This policy is effective and updated as of 5th June 2018.
Changes to this policy
We will always be happy to accommodate a refund of your order, if you receive a product which is faulty or damaged. We are only able to process refunds on any items that are faulty or damaged. Items are sold as seen and are standard to product descriptions listed by us on our website. However, we unfortunately will not be able to process refunds on any items of jewellery due to heightened regulations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will also be unable to accept refunds if requested due to a misunderstanding of product dimensions. All dimensions are listed in full on the website, and should you wish to discuss this - please contact us using the appropriate channels. Finally we withhold the right to reject and immediately refund any order for our own reasoning.

COVID-19 and How This May Affect Your Order
We are aware of the disruption that COVID-19 has made to shipping, and as such would like to make you aware of this. We ship our orders via Royal Mail 1st Class, and therefore have a reliable stream of communication with regards to the progress of your delivery. If your order faces any disruption as a result of delays caused by the pandemic, we will of course contact you at the first instance using the details you provided to keep you up to speed, and aware of your order progress.
