1. Order Acceptance, Cancellation and Account Registration
Your receipt of an electronic, or other form of, order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason, whether or not your credit card has been charged. If applicable, your order will be refunded in the original form of payment. If your credit card has been charged and your order is canceled, we will immediately issue a refund to your credit card account in the amount of the charge and notify you that your order was canceled. Orders placed using credit issued by us (“Site Credit”) will be available immediately to use once the order is canceled. Promotions will be refunded and reactivated in your account, as long as the promotion has yet to expire. Please note that all orders are subject to acceptance and availability and are only guaranteed once they are fulfilled.
In order to access certain features of the Website you may now or in the future be required to register and create an account (“Account”). Such registration may be permitted through certain third party social networking services, including Facebook and Twitter (collectively, “SNS”). When you register through your SNS account, you will be asked to login to the Services using your SNS account credentials. By creating an Account via your account with an SNS, you are allowing us to access your SNS account information and you are agreeing to abide by the applicable terms and conditions of your SNS in your use of the Services via such SNS. Members have the option to disable the connection between their Account and SNS account at any time by accessing the SNS account and disconnecting access to the Website. You agree not to share your password, let anyone else access your Account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your Account. You will not transfer your Account to anyone without first getting our written permission. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account for any reason, including if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete.
2. Presale or "Preorder" Orders
We may offer presale orders. Once a preorder period is closed and the preorder accepted by the designer, we will not be able to make changes to the order. This includes size changes, style changes, quantities, etc. We will try to accommodate late preorder requests, but this is purely at the discretion of the designer. Please note that all preorders of jewelry or jewelry-related Products are for “final sale”; accordingly, once they have been placed, such preorders cannot not be changed or refunded. As soon as the preorder has been placed and the preorder period has closed, it cannot be canceled unless the shipment is unavoidably delayed. In this case, we will do our best to cancel the order if requested. We will attempt in good faith to communicate any delays, production changes, or cancellations to you as soon as it is confirmed by the designer. Any other cancellation requests are at our discretion, and may only be refunded as Site Credit.
3. Payment Terms
Terms of payment are within our sole discretion and, unless otherwise agreed by us in writing, shall be as follows:
If you preorder Products, you will be required to pay the specified Product price in full, exclusive of shipping fees and taxes. Plus shipping fees, and any taxes or duties owed at such time as the Product is ready for shipment.
Please be aware that because of the “pre-sale” nature of such transactions, you should expect a wait period of approximately four to six (4 to 6) months between the date you place your order and the date that the Product is ready for shipment, and that pre-order delivery dates are not assured and may be subject to delay. If we are notified (by the designer, manufacture, vendor, etc.) that the Products you have preordered will not be manufactured or delivered (and that all monies deposited or paid by us in respect of such preorders, if any, will be refunded) your order will be canceled and your monies will be refunded.
4. Changes in Products and Pricing
We are constantly updating and revising our offerings of Products, and we may discontinue Products at any time without notice. All pricing for the Products is subject to change. For all of our prices and Products, we reserve the right to make adjustments due to changing market conditions, Product discontinuation, manufacturer price changes, errors in advertisements, and other extenuating circumstances. If the price of an order changes after you’ve paid for it in full or after you’ve paid the down payment, your order will be canceled and your monies refunded.
We endeavor to be as accurate as possible with Product descriptions and prices. However, we do not warrant that Product descriptions or prices are accurate. In the event that a Product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or Product information received from our suppliers, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for Products listed at the incorrect price. We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit or debit card has been charged. If your credit or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we shall immediately issue a refund to your credit or debit card account in the amount of the charge and advise you of the canceled order. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it in accordance with our Return Policy, as set forth below.
We may, without prior notice, change the Website, stop providing any services or offering any Products for sale, or create usage limits. We may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the Website without notice or liability, for any reason or for no reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of these terms and conditions. Upon termination of these terms and conditions, your access to the Website will continue to be bound by the terms of these terms and conditions, which, by their nature, should survive termination, including without limitation ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.
5. Shipping Fees, Taxes, and International Duties
If you are shipping within the United States of America, sales tax will be charged on orders shipping to New York State and California. For preorder Products, this tax will be charged at such time as the Product is ready for shipment and for all other Products, this tax will be charged at the time you place your order for the Product.
No other tax or import duty will be applied to orders shipped within the United States.
When it comes to orders $1,500 and over we will include a signature requirement to ensure safe delivery.
If you wish to include a signature requirement on your order please state this during checkout under Special Instructions or contact customer service immediately.
Note that we are NOT responsible for loss or stolen items.
If you are shipping outside the United States on a DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) basis, import taxes and duties may be automatically applied at the time of checkout, but we may now or in the future permit shipping on a DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) basis, where no taxes or duties are charged by us (and you will be responsible and liable for all import duties, customers and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to). For preorder Products, all relevant shipping fees, import taxes, and duties (if applicable) will be charged at such time as the Product is ready for shipment and for all other Products, such shipping fees, import taxes, and duties will be charged at the time you place your order for the Product. The costs of shipping and any import taxes, and duties paid are non-refundable.
If you pay for shipping when you checkout, we do NOT refund the cost of shipping
6. Shipping Policy
We offer a variety of shipping options to meet your shipping needs. Please check the shipping options at checkout for specific delivery options and fees. No C.O.D. orders can be accepted.
Please note that the posted shipping time frame, if provided, may vary from item to item. The posted shipping time frame is contingent upon credit card approval and may be delayed should we experience difficulties in obtaining authorization. These shipping terms, including the terms set forth in any shipping guidelines we may now have or may later adopt, are accepted by you by placing an order with us.
All orders are dispatched with ‘No Signature Required’ and may be left at a residence deemed safe by the delivery company. We are not responsible for any loss or liability or damage that may result from leaving your package at the shipping address without a signature. If you prefer to have your order shipped with ‘Signature Required’ please contact us at email@example.com so that we may make arrangements.
We are not responsible for any international shipping delays caused by the customs clearance process.
