It's important for us to know you are completely satisfied with your purchase before leaving the store. But if for any reason, you're not entirely happy with your jewellery item, you can return it in its original condition within 30 days. Each jewellery item will be inspected in order to receive a full refund. Please note, that delivery of your jewellery item is not included. Any cost on delivery will be deducted from the full amount. Another option will be to exchange your item for a creation, that's the same amount. Bespoke items and special finger sizing items you will not be able to return.



Q: Is it safe to ship my diamond creation to another country?
A: Of course. When it comes to our shipping services they're guaranteed to be safe and secure. For your peace of mind, each item is shipped with insurance. Please note, this service is only valid if your country allows for the shipment of diamonds to take place.

Q: Do you offer door-to-door shipping?
A: Yes, we do. However, this only applies if you provide us with a business address and not a residential address.

Q: Will it be possible for someone else to sign for my purchase on my behalf?
A: For the protection of the item we only allow the person, whose name is on the invoice to sign for the purchase. Other arrangements can be made if you send us a copy of your ID and give written permission for another individual to sign for your package.

Q: Do you include VAT with shipping?
A: VAT is included in local shipping (please, refer to South Africa Value Added Tax), but is excluded from international shipping.

Q: How long do I have to wait for my purchase to arrive?
A: It depends where you stay. For residents that live in main cities, shipping will typically take place overnight. Shipping to any outlying areas in South Africa will take 2 - 3 days and international shipment will usually take 8 - 10 days, depending on customs clearance. Kindly note, this does not include the lead times of your jewellery creations.

Q: Do you charge extra for international shipping?
A: If you're shipping to another country you need to pay for import duties and customs. Once this is paid, your item will be given to you. Please note, that all import fees are different so make sure to contact your customs office for more details.

Q: If my fiancé prefers a different style ring to the one I chose, can I return it?
A: You can return an item in its original condition, within 30 days from the date you purchased it. The return policy only applies to stock items and not bespoke items or items with special finger sizing.
