terms & conditions

Pricing

All prices are listed in British Pounds Sterling (£ GBP) and are subject to alteration without notification. The price you pay is that shown when the item is added to the Basket.

For bespoke pieces, i.e., an item made specifically to the customer's specification, the price and payment terms will be that agreed between the customer and Julie Walton Jewellery at the time of ordering. Any changes the customer makes to the design after ordering and prior to delivery will be recalculated and confirmed with the customer prior to shipment.

Packaging costs are included in the price you pay. Your purchase will be supplied in a high quality jewellery gift box or a beautiful organza bag, and all orders are sent in a securely sealed padded bag for extra protection.

Placing the Order

When ordering online, you will be taken to a PayPal secure checkout where payments can be made using major credit and debit cards. PayPal uses cutting-edge data encryption, fraud detection tools and all kinds of other advanced techniques to improve security making it a safer, faster, more secure way to pay online. Julie Walton Jewellery does not see your card details at any time.

N.B. You DO NOT need a PayPal account to use the checkout. You will be given the option to Pay with your PayPal account or Pay with a debit or credit card or Cancel and return to Julie Walton.

Alternatively payment may be made by personal cheque, if preferred. Please contact me in advance if you intend to pay by this method. Your purchase will be dispatched once payment has cleared.

On receipt of your order you will receive acknowledgement via email.

Delivery

I will endeavour to ship your purchase within 24 hours of cleared payment but this may vary depending on availability as only a small amount of stock is held to ensure exclusivity. Please note that dispatch of bespoke items will take longer. You will be advised by email if a delay is expected. Please contact me if your order is required urgently and I will do my best to oblige.

Due to the one off nature of most of the stock, there is the unlikely event that an online order is placed for an item that has already been sold. If this is the case, you will receive a full refund for that item and the option to cancel the purchase of any coordinating items. This is extremely unlikely but I do attend craft events with the same stock that is listed online.

Postage

UK Delivery: Free delivery with all orders within the United Kingdom. Goods are dispatched using Royal Mail First Class for orders under £20, and orders above this amount will be dispatched using Royal Mail First Class Signed for which will require a signature on receipt of the goods.

N.B. If you haven't received your order after 7 working days of dispatch (you will receive an E-Mail notifying you that your order has been dispatched), please contact me. Delivery times may take longer during the holiday periods.

International Delivery: Orders from outside of the UK are welcomed. Please contact me for International delivery costs as they vary from country to country.

Faulty items

In the unlikely event that your purchase is found to be faulty, or becomes faulty within the first six months of being sold, you will be offered a free repair service, replacement or a full refund. Please contact me before returning, quoting your order number, name and address, details of the product and the reason for return, and whether you require a refund or a replacement. You will not be charged the return postage costs.

If the item purchased was a One off or Limited Edition piece, it may not be possible to provide a repair or replacement. In this case, you will be offered an alternative or a refund.

N.B. Faulty means when the item you purchased has got broken or damaged due to inadequate quality, it's not fit for purpose, not as described or doesn't match the seller's description. The item is not faulty if it was damaged through wear and tear, an accident or misuse, or if you have changed your mind.
