Section 6 - Delivery

We currently deliver products worldwide.

Delivery charges and estimated timescales are specified when you place an order. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated timescales, however delays are occasionally inevitable due to unforeseen factors. JC Jewellery & Bullion shall be under no liability for any delay or failure to deliver the products within estimated timescales. Orders can be collected by hand, directly from us, with an appropriate proof of Identity such as passport, driving license, etc. Risk of loss and damage of products passes to you on the date when the products are delivered.

In general the delivering agent will be: a) Royal Mail special delivery service for the United Kingdom (including the outer British Isles and Northern Ireland addresses); b) FedEx secure delivery for any other country worldwide; c) In special circumstances, the delivery agent may be a different agent, nominated by JC Jewellery.

The delivery address is provided by you when placing the order. Goods are deemed to be delivered when our delivering agent delivers them to the delivery address (you will be asked to sign a delivery note) or, in the case our delivering agent attempts without success to deliver the goods at your delivery address, when collected by you at the address indicated by our delivering agent in the ticket he will leave at the delivery address. You are required to collect the goods in 5 working days from receiving the notification by our delivering agent of goods waiting for your collection. Once the 5 working days are elapsed, goods will be deemed to have been delivered successfully and returns can only be made under the return policy conditions.

You are advised to provide in your purchase order to us a delivery address not accessible by third parties. For the avoidance of doubts, goods are deemed to be delivered when delivered at your delivery address or collected at the collection address indicated by our delivering agent, as the case may be, and not when delivered to you personally.


Section 7 - Returns

We provide the option of a full NO QUESTIONS ASKED refund within 14 days of delivery. This returns policy is limited to all items that have not been customized from their original state or those that have been made to order as displayed on the website. Made to order items include all engagement rings, wedding rings and diamond eternity rings. Please contact us to discuss this further, as management has the ability to waive these limitations on a case by case basis. In the unlikely event that the goods turn out to be faulty, damaged or different from those the customer ordered, JC Jewellery & Bullion will make good the item free of charge or refund the item in full.

In cases where the item is to be hand delivered and not dispatched to the customer, a 1 week window will be given to the customer to allow them to arrange a time slot for their order from JC Jewellery & Bullion, If the item is not collected within the week, the 14 days no questions asked return policy will start being counted.

If an item is to be viewed at the customers premise to confirm purchase, the customer will have 14 days to change their minds and benefit from our “no questions asked” return policy.

For viewings/inspections of items organised outside of JC Jewellery & Bullion premises, a non-refundable deposit will need to be paid in advance by the customer, to cover shipping and insurance costs. Once the items are ready to be viewed at the pre-agreed location, the customer will be notified and upon such a notification, the customer will then have up to 3 working days to arrange a viewing for the item(s), if the customer is unable to view the items within 3 working days, JC Jewellery & Bullion reserves the right to ship back the item(s) and retain the deposit paid. For such items, where only a none refundable deposit was paid, a final verdict on whether they customer will be proceeding with the purchase or not will need to be given to JC Jewellery & Bullion within 2 working days of having viewed the item(s). If the client fails to provide an answer within 2 working days, then 77 Diamonds reserves the right to ship back the item(s) and retain the deposit paid.

Returns of orders will be confirmed only where you have returned the item in its original condition, unworn and together with its original packaging and certificate where applicable. Non-return of the certificate will be charged at £350 for a replacement certificate and you may be charged an additional replacement cost for packaging and any other collateral material. Please note that clients based outside of the UK who are returning their items will need to bear the costs of shipment and insurance. The cost will vary depending on the country where the item is dispatched from as well as the value of the item.

Should the client not like their jewellery, we would be happy to remount the diamond in a design of their choice, for a discounted price of 40%.

All returns are subject to verification and authentication by the JC Jewellery & Bullion team. Purchased items with any element of personalization, engraving, bespoke items, designs by or for the client, may be considered for return and refund on a case by case basis. For Health and Safety reasons, earrings will not be considered for return. To arrange a return we would require you to contact your JC Jewellery & Bullion Customer Services representative who will provide you with further instructions. Note: JC Jewellery & Bullion will not be responsible for loss or damage of return shipments. We cannot be held liable for any loss or damage you may suffer as a result of your return or late delivery or cancellation of your order, so we advise that you retain all proof of posting documentation. If you have any questions regarding returns please send us an e-mail to jcjewelleryandbullion@gmail.com.

All Ring and Jewellery sizes and measurements are approximate but we endeavour to ensure that the sizes and measurements are accurate. If you do not know the ring size, please request a free ring sizer by emailing us with your address. Once you have received the ring sizer and are able to determine the correct size, you can use this to order the correct size. However, if it is still an inadequate fit you can send it back to us for a free first resize. However if your first resize turns out to be incorrect, the second resizing will be charged at our standard rate of £45 including VAT which covers the cost of resizing. All ring prices and specifications are based on a UK size L-M, unless otherwise stated in the description. Ring widths are measured at the widest point of the ring.

Goods will remain property of JC Jewellery & Bullion until they have been fully paid. In case you receive goods you have not paid for and you are requested by JC Jewellery & Bullion to return the same, you have to do so immediately without delays. JC Jewellery & Bullion will incur the costs of delivery but may charge you interest in the amount of 2% above the Paypal rate to be calculated from the day you have received the goods.

JC Jewellery & Bullion merchandise has a 1 Year warranty guaranteed against defects in manufacturing and workmanship. This warranty does not apply to items subjected to excessive wear, abuse or physical damage whether accidental or otherwise. Upon acceptance of delivery, insurance and protection of merchandise becomes the sole responsibility of the customer and JC Jewellery & Bullion shall not be held liable for any loss, theft or resulting damages that may subsequently occur.

If the purchased jewellery has been in any way tampered with or altered by the customer, another jeweller or any other third party, the 1 Year warranty and the return policy will cease to apply, and the item becomes non-refundable and non-returnable.


Section 8 - Resizing

JC Jewellery & Bullion is pleased to offer the 1st resize of any ring purchase for free as long as the resize takes place within the return policy range.

Rings can only be sized 3 sizes either way from the original size for free. A resize outside of this range will incur a £15 fee for silver and £45 for gold, platinum and palladium (inclusive of VAT).

After a ring has been resized, it is ineligible for a refund or exchange.

After your first free resizing, any further resizes will be charged at £15 for silver and £45 for gold, platinum and palladium (inclusive of VAT).

Engraving may fade in the resizing process so the customer will have to pay if the engraving needs to be re-done thereafter.


SECTION 9 - ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION

We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store.
