Returns & Refunds Policy


We hope that you will love your product but if you feel it's not quite right and it is something that you would like to return we will be happy to exchange or refund the unused item (please see the few exclusions below which cannot be returned). 

Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition in which you received it with all the tags intact. It must also be in the original packaging.

NB: Several types of goods are exempt from being returned. Pierced jewellery such as pierced earrings, body jewellery, etc cannot be returned due to reasons of hygiene. 

Additional non-returnable items:

  • Gift Cards
  • Special Orders
  • Personalised items such as engravings 
  • Items that have been altered in any way for you
  • Items that have been especially ordered in for you which we don't normally stock

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Please do not send your purchase back to the manufacturer.

Refunds (if applicable)
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If approved, your refund will be processed and a credit will be applied  to your credit card or original method of payment. 

We do our best to process all returns within 24-48 hours of receiving the item, but please be patient if it takes longer - we are a small family business and it may be that we are exceptionally busy. 

Late or missing refunds (if applicable)
Refunds may take a few days to go through the banking process, which we have no control over.  If you haven’t received a refund after a few days, first check your bank account again.
Then contact your credit card company, it may take time before your refund is officially posted.
Next, contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet, please contact us at

If an item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, you’ll receive a gift credit for the value of your return. Once the returned item is received, a gift certificate will be mailed to you.

If the item wasn't maked as a gift when purchased, or the gift giver had the order shipped to themselves to give to you later, we will send a refund to the gift giver and she/he will find out about your return.
