An order placed on our Site constitutes an offer from you to buy our Goods subject to these Terms. All orders are subject to acceptance which will be confirmed by email along with a receipt for your purchase and confirmation of dispatch date.  The “contract” between Mikaela Lyons Jewellery Ltd and you will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation. 

The Contract will relate only to those Goods whose dispatch has been confirmed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Goods which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Goods has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

11.   Availability and Delivery
Every piece of jewellery is handmade to order although we may have some pieces in stock that can be dispatched within 48hours.  We aim to dispatch all orders within 3 weeks from confirmation of your order.  Please note the dispatch date excludes shipping.   We will not be held responsible for any delays to your orders as a result of postal service delays or disruptions.

All UK orders are shipped via a signed service using Royal Mail 2nd Class Recorded delivery. All international orders are shipped via a signed service using Royal Mail International Recorded Delivery.   Please note International customers are responsible for any customs fees and charges if applicable. Please see our Shipping page for further details and costs.

12.   Prices and Payments
The price of any Goods will be as quoted on our Site except in cases of obvious error.  Prices are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders for which we have already sent Dispatch Confirmation.  All prices include VAT but exclude delivery cost which, if applicable will be added to the total amount due at checkout.  All UK orders are carriage paid, International orders are charged at £10. 

Despite our best efforts it is possible that some of the Goods listed may be incorrectly priced.  In such circumstances we will notify you as part of the Order Confirmation process.  We are under no obligation to provide the Goods to you where the incorrect price is lower if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakable I.E. where it can be reasonably recognised as mis-priced.

All online payments on mikaelalyons.com are processed via Sage Pay on Shopify. Mikaela Lyons Jewellery Ltd assumes no liability for the availability or functionality of these services; nor any liability for financial loss caused by the use of Sage Pay.  We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

13.   Materials and Plating Information
Where possible our Silver is sourced from recycled metal using suppliers who follow ethical codes of practice.  All our Gold is certified as sourced from ethical mines (certificates available on request). Whilst we obtain verification from our suppliers to ensure that our Silver is plated to 2.5 microns of 24 Carat Gold (which can be classed as Vermeil) we do not test every single item, so cannot provide certification.

14.   Repairs and Customer Guarantee
We want each piece of jewellery to be coveted and loved so our pieces are designed to be durable for daily wear.  Please refer to our Care Instructions for full information on caring for your product.

Our gold plating “Vermeil” pieces are plated to 2.5 microns of 24 Carat Gold which we guarantee for 6 months with sensible wear.   In the unlikely event that the piece should require re-plating within 6 months, we will arrange this free of charge, however proof of purchase must be provided.  For much loved items which fall outside of this guarantee period please contact the office for a re-plating quote which will include an admin/postage charge.

15.   Refund Policy and Consumer Rights
For “standard” orders
(no engraving or bespoke designs) you may cancel your contract with us up to 14 days from receipt of your order and will be entitled to a full refund.  Please notify us in writing either via email or via the returns page that you wish to return an item and ensure that you reference your order number.  We must receive the returned item within 14 days of your receipt of the goods.  Upon our receipt of the return and providing the goods are in the same condition as you received them, we will process your refund as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days of the day you have given notice of your cancellation. 
For UK Orders we will refund the price of the goods in full, however you will be responsible for the cost of returning them to us.   In the instance of a defective product, we will additionally refund the cost incurred by you for the return delivery to us.  
For International Orders we will refund the price of the goods only, however delivery charges will not be refunded and you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item to us.  In the instance of a defective product, we will additionally refund the cost incurred by you for the return delivery to us.  

All returns remain the responsibility of the customer until received so we advise using a signed delivery service.  We will not accept liability for any lost or damaged items being returned by a customer.

For “personalised” orders (with engraving or bespoke designs) which are deemed as a commission, please email us to discuss the issue and we will advise how to proceed.
