4. Returns And Substitutions
4.1 We provide the option of a full NO QUESTIONS ASKED refund within 30 days of delivery. This returns policy is limited to a) all items where the diamond is priced below £25,000 excluding VAT (items above this threshold subject to refund within 7 days of delivery) b) items that have not been customised from their original state as displayed on the website (see 4.7 below). 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, A Star Diamonds will make good the item free of charge or refund the item in full.
4.2 In cases where the item is to be collected from our premises and not dispatched to the customer, a 1 week window will be given to the customer to allow them to collect their order from A Star Diamonds, If the item is not collected within the week, the 30 days no questions asked return policy (or 7 days, depending on the value of the item – see 4.1), will start being counted.
4.3 If an item is to be viewed at our premises to confirm purchase, the customer will have 14 days to change their minds and benefit from our “no questions asked” return policy, as opposed to 30 days which is only applicable for completed items not viewed on premise and dispatched directly to customers.
4.4 For viewings/inspections of items organised outside of A Star Diamonds 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 come and view the item(s), if the customer is unable to view the items within 3 working days, A Star Diamonds reserves the right to ship back the item(s) and retain the deposit paid. For such items, where only a non 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 A Star Diamonds within 2 working days of having viewed the item(s). If the client fails to provide an answer within 2 working days, then A Star Diamonds reserves the right to ship back the item(s) and retain the deposit paid.
4.5 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.
4.6 Should the client not like their jewellery, we would be happy to remount the diamond (where one or more were selected) in a design of their choice, without charge, save for any additional metal, diamonds or labour required and a nominal £100 administration and processing charge.
4.7 All returns are subject to verification and authentication by the A Star Diamonds team. Purchased items with any element of personalisation, engraving, bespoke items, designs by or for the client, are not considered for return and refund. For Health and Safety reasons, earrings will not be considered for return. For security reasons we recommend that you do not use the name A Star Diamonds anywhere on the packaging of your returned item because it includes the term “diamonds”. To arrange a return we would require you to contact A Star Diamonds Customer Services representative who will provide you with further instructions. Note: A Star Diamonds 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 : firstname.lastname@example.org
4.8 All Rings and Jewellery sizes and measurements are approximate however we endeavor to ensure that the sizes and measurements are accurate. If you do not know the ring size, please leave the ring size as “I Don’t Know”, and we will make the ring a standard ring size (between L – M). Once you have received the ring and are able to determine the correct size, you can send it back to us for a free first resize. However if you requested a specific ring size with your initial order and this turns out to be incorrect, the second resizing will be charged at our standard rate of £65 including VAT which covers the cost of laser resizing for a better quality finish and added strength. All ring prices and specifications are based on a UK size L-M. Ring widths are measured at the widest point of the ring.
4.9 Goods will remain property of A Star Diamonds until they have been fully paid. In case you receive goods you have not paid for and you are requested by A Star Diamonds to return the same, you have to do so immediately without delays. A Star Diamonds will incur the costs of delivery but may charge you interest in the amount of 2% above the WorldPay rate to be calculated form the day you have received the goods.
4.10 A Star Diamonds merchandise has a lifetime 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 A Star Diamonds shall not be held liable for any loss, theft or resulting damages that may subsequently occur.
4.11 If the purchased jewellery has been in any way tampered with or altered by the customer, another jeweller or any other third party, the lifetime warranty and the return policy will cease to apply, and the item becomes non-refundable and non-returnable.
