The Buyer must return Goods requiring a refund or exchange, in-time to ensure Goods are received by the Seller within a maximum of 31 days, commencing from the day Goods are dispatched by the Seller.

When cancelling an order or returning Goods, the Buyer must send notification via email to info@greatvaluejewellery.com. This notification must be received prior to the return of the items or for cancellations, within 7 days of the order being placed. Failure to send notification within this timeframe may result in administrative fees being deducted from any refunds provided to the Buyer.

Furthermore, customers who purchase 'Loose' Diamonds must ensure that the diamond viewing container seal is not broken, tampered with or damaged in any way.

9.4. When the Seller receives instruction that the Buyer wishes to withdraw from the contract in accordance with these terms, any sum received by the Seller from the Buyer's chosen method of payment will be credited to the Buyer, minus any other exceptional costs applicable. The Seller will credit the Buyer providing the Goods are found in the conditions as detailed in 9.2.

9.5. Credit to the Buyer for returned Goods will exclude (but not limited to) Gift Wrapping, Matt Finishing, Certificate of Valuation, Urgent fast-tracking cost(s) & International Shipping cost(s).

Where the Buyer has requested further customisation or custom-made item(s) including requests for, (but not limited to) Ring Sizing, Engraving, Bevel Edging and Diamond Setting, the item is non-refundable and non-exchangeable other than at the discretion of The Seller.

9.6. In the event that the Seller is unable to supply the Goods, it shall forthwith inform the Buyer of this. If the Seller cannot meet the Buyer's requirements through another product, the Contract will be deemed to be cancelled. Should the contract be cancelled by the Seller after payment has been taken from the Buyer but no Goods have been sent, the Seller will refund the Buyer the full amount minus any other exceptional costs applicable.

9.7. If the Buyer fails to return the Goods to the Seller under clauses 9.2 & 9.3. and should the Seller incur costs in recovering the Goods from the Buyer, the Buyer shall be responsible for the costs incurred. The Seller reserves the right to invoice for or deduct such costs from any monies refundable to the Buyer.

9.8. In the event that the Goods are returned due to a presumed manufacturing fault then the item(s) will be quality assessed and if applicable, amended or replaced at no extra cost to the Buyer. Should item(s) returned by the Buyer due to a presumed fault pass the Seller's quality assessment process, and it be deemed that a fault has occurred as a result of wear and tear or it be deemed that the item(s) have no fault, the Seller reserves the right to charge the Buyer for any repair required to remedy a fault due to wear and tear, as well as the cost for both the original shipping and the return shipping and any other costs incurred by the Seller in relation to the Goods.

9.9 In the event that the Goods are returned for an exchange to a different item (with separate product code), the Buyer is entitled to up to 2 (two) exchanges per order (or associated order, deemed by membership details, billing and/or shipping details or other relevant connection) with these exchanges carrying a 27 day standard returns policy commencing from the day Goods are dispatched by the Seller. Should further exchanges be requested, such requests will be considered at the discretion of the Seller and will carry an exchange fee of at least £25.00 per item. This fee is additional to any other costs incurred during the exchange process. Rebates on items returned for an exchange outside the standard exchange entitlement, to an item of a lesser value will be offered at the Sellers discretion.

9.10. In the event that the Goods are returned for a different ring size (meeting conditions 9.1 to 9.8) then item(s) can be sized* or exchanged* based on standard ring sizes on offer from the Seller, as follows:

Item Type Ring-Sizing-Exchange Fees
1st Sizing Request (without customisation) FREE*†‡
1st Sizing Request (with Matt Finish) Cost of Matt Finish Service*†‡
1st Sizing Request (with Engraving**) Cost of Engraving Service*†‡
Further / Other Sizing Requests (where possible) Prices From £25†

* Please note this service is offered as a gesture of goodwill, per ring from original order (at the discretion of the Seller); rings must be returned by the Buyer to the Seller within 31 days, commencing from the date of initial dispatch (by the Seller) or (where the Buyer has previously returned a ring from the original order) within 27 days, commencing from the date of re-dispatch by the Seller.

†The Buyer understands that ring sizing and exchange requests may affect the weight and specifications of order items.

‡No refund or exchange to an alternative product can be offered for items that have been previously returned for ring sizing-exchanges. Upon the Buyer returning an item for a sizing-exchange they accept that the product meets their needs thus invalidating any entitlement to a refund or exchange to an alternative item.

**Engraved rings (except Palladium rings) can only be sized up or down one size at the Seller's discretion.

To facilitate the finger size required by the Buyer, the Seller offers a complementary Finger Measuring Tool. The Seller can not be held liable for misuse of or incorrect finger measurements taken by the Buyer using the Tool. To request a Complementary Ring Size Finger Measuring Tool, please click here.

For more information regarding the Ring-Sizing service and/or the Ring Sizing Finger Measuring Tool please contact us.

9.11. Buyers who order multiple items within one order OR within multiple orders MAY be classed as 'Trade' Buyers at the Seller's discretion. Buyers who the Seller classes as a 'Trade' Buyer will be informed of this during the ordering process. In the event that a 'Trade' Buyer returns part or all of an order for refund and the Goods are found in the conditions as detailed in 9.2, the Seller will refund the Buyer less a 15% Handling Fee.

9.12. Buyers whose order is deemed by the Seller to contain items purchased for comparative purposes and when the Buyer's intention is to return one or more of these items or when an order (or associated order, deemed by membership details, billing and/or shipping details or other relevant connection) contains such items that are either the same (finger) size or have the same product code, the Seller may charge a re-stocking fee (starting from £15.00 per item returned).

9.13. Buyers whose order contains item(s) that carry the same product code, but an alternative finger size as item(s) refunded from a previous order (or associated order, deemed by membership details, billing and/or shipping details or other relevant connection) will be considered as item(s) that have benefited from a sizing-exchange and will therefore not be eligible for a refund or exchange to an alternative item.

10. ASSIGNMENT

10.1. The Seller may sub-contract the performance of any of its obligations under the Agreement to any parent, subsidiary or associated Company. The sub-contracting shall not relieve it of any liability under the Contract unless prior notice is given and agreed to the Buyer.

12. FORCE MAJEURE

If the performance of the Contract or any obligation under it is prevented, restricted, or interfered with by reason of circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Seller and it gives notice to the Buyer, the Seller shall be excused from the performance to the extent of the prevention, restriction, or interference, but the Seller shall use its best endeavours to avoid or remove the causes of non-performance and shall continue performance under the contract.

13. GENERAL

13.1. Each right or remedy that the Seller and the Buyer has under the Contract is without prejudice to any other right or remedy that may exist.

13.2. In the event that any provision of the Contract is declared by any judicial or other competent authority to be void, voidable, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable or if an indication to that effect is received by either the Buyer or the Seller from any competent authority, the Buyer and the Seller shall amend that provision in such reasonable manner as achieves the intention without illegality.

13.3. If the Seller or the Buyer:

13.3.1. Fails or delays to exercise any right or remedy, it shall not operate as a waiver of it; and

12.3.2. partially exercises any right or remedy, neither of them shall be precluded from further exercising the right, remedy or other power.

13.4. Any waiver of a breach of any provision of the Contract shall not:

13.4.1. Be deemed to be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default; and

13.4.2. affect the other terms of the Contract.
