Terms and Conditions
If you have any problems, please contact me and I will endeavour to rectify. However, for legal reasons, my formal terms and conditions are below.
OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
Our website pages will guide you through the steps you need to take to place an Order with us. Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your Order at each stage of the order process. It is your responsibility to make sure all the details in your Order are correct.
If you think that there is a mistake or require any changes, please contact us to discuss.
When you submit your Order to us, this does not mean we have accepted your Order for any Items. Our acceptance of the Order will take place, and these Terms will become binding between you and us, when we issue you with an Order Confirmation, at which point the Contract will come into existence between you and us.
If we are unable to supply you with the Items or otherwise cannot accept your Order, we will inform you of this and we will not process the Order. This might be because the product is out of stock, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
If you wish to make a change to the Items you have ordered, please contact us and we will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Items, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.
OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
We may amend these Terms from time to time. Every time you order items from us, the terms and conditions in force at the date of your order will apply to the contract between you and us. We will not at any time change the terms and conditions which apply to any Order you have already placed.
If you are a consumer, you may only purchase items from our website if you are over 18 years of age and have a valid credit/debit card.

If you are purchasing from outside of the UK, currency exchange rates and credit card charges may make a difference to the amount billed.

You may, of course, organise your own engraving and I can suggest some companies for you to use. Alternatively, I will organise engraving for you at an added cost and is subject to a handling charge on the engraver’s costs. I will send you a copy of my instructions to the engraver for you to check the spelling and all other details prior to them starting the job, If the work is incorrectly engraved compared to the instructions that you have approved, then I will get it corrected at my cost. If the error is due to a mistake on the instructions you have approved, then you must bear all the costs of any rectification.
I will endeavour to keep you informed of progress. I will also contact you before delivery, where you have paid a deposit, I will make every effort to contact you, but if I have not heard from you about paying the final sum after three months of my last attempt to contact you, then I will consider that you have defaulted on the agreement and therefore you will forfeit the deposit. I will then sell or otherwise dispose of the commissioned work and retain all proceeds. As all pieces are handmade, slight variations from the examples shown are possible. Natural materials such as horn, wood and mother of pearl do vary in colours and patterns.
