Terms of service
GUARANTEE OF QUALITY
1. *Part of the charm and artistic value of handcrafted and finished jewellery is it could contain small marks and imperfections as opposed to mass-produced machine items and are not necessarily an indication of flaws.*
2. All handmade pieces are unique and no two items are identical so please take it into consideration when placing a custom order based on previous designs.
3. All jewellery pieces comply with UK Hallmarking Laws and the materials used are authentic and genuine.
At Bijoux de Chagall we offer a Guarantee of Quality meaning that if any piece of jewellery we have made appears to be faulty / damaged at the delivery time or during a very short period of time (1 month) - we offer full free repair (minus shipping costs).
It also means that we use the substantial-quality thickness of the prongs, ring shanks, and settings which should last for a long time without the need for repair due to wear and tear use.
We always supply Jewellery and Gemstones Care instructions with every piece we sell and if the prong breakage happens due to some unfortunate circumstances (not being faulty) we are happy to offer a Repair service with helpful advice for a correlated damage charge fee.
The colours of the product's pictures can vary depending on the brightness, colour tones etc of customers' devices and can look slightly different in real-time viewing and as such we do mention this in our adverts. The colour of individual gemstones is unique and Bijoux de Chagall cannot guarantee that the colour of the stone will exactly match that shown in illustrative photographs on its website.
SUSTAINABLE and ETHICAL JEWELLERY
Our jewellery pieces are made from recycled materials and ethically sourced gemstones. We take great satisfaction in using non-toxic products during the production process of our Jewellery. Recyclable materials and packaging are used wherever possible. All our Gemstones are Ethically sourced and our Diamonds are Conflict Free. We use NATURAL and LAB-CREATED Gemstones as these stones are Eco-Friendly and yet they are definitely still REAL Gemstones.
WHY DO WE USE NATURAL and LAB-GROWN GEMSTONES?
We absolutely love and use lots of NATURAL gemstones, they are gorgeous and beautiful, but some of our gemstones are Lab-created.
It's because some Natural stones are very rare and almost disappeared from our planet and Lab-Created gemstones have less effect on the ecology and definitely are conflict FREE!
Mining natural gemstones is an energy-intensive and ecologically invasive procedure, affecting fragile ecosystems across the world. Lab-grown gemstones are a victory for the environment, human rights and gemstones supply chain transparency.
WHAT ARE LAB-GROWN GEMSTONES?
These gemstones should never be confused with artificial ones. The Lab-created gemstones we use are physically, chemically and optically identical to the natural mined geological gemstones.
All items are handcrafted in the UK, London and most of them are MADE to ORDER and the processing/ making time is currently approx 1-2 weeks before shipping.
READY-MADE items are posted within 2-3 days.
