Please note that personalised or custom orders will not be exchanged unless they are faulty. Hand stamped jewellery by its very nature is subject to variations in letter spacing and amount of impression made each time the stamp is struck with a hammer. The variation of spacing with hand stamped jewellery is one of its charming characteristics. Please do not order hand stamped jewellery unless you are happy with some variation in letter spacing or depth of imprint.
Please use the contact form to ask any questions before you place your order, or let me know if you need your jewellery sooner, this can often be arranged. A deposit of 50% will be payable at the time of order. The balance to be paid before the item is dispatched.
Rings Please check your finger size before you order. Please note that I will make the size you order. If you order the wrong size I will need to charge you a making charge. If I have made a mistake on sizing I will of course remake your ring free of charge.
Custom I am happy to quote for custom designs. I will be delighted to discuss any ideas you have provide you with an estimate once we have discussed these with you. I will draw out ideas so you can visualise the design before production begins. Please note that I do not copy other designers' work. A 50% charge is then payable before I start making a custom design for you. I will send you a photograph of the design and the balance should be paid on approval, then the item will be shipped to you.
Wedding Ring Workshop Casting When you place an order for a wedding ring to be cast you will be sent an estimate of cost. Please note that if you commit to the estimate you will need to send your payment for the actual cost price at the time of casting. This can fluctuate because metal prices are linked to the stock market. When you receive notification of the cost of your casting cost you need to pay it when it is received otherwise this may cause delays with your precious metal casting.
