Questions about products
I can’t find an item online.

Where is my order?
Standard Delivery Orders
We aim to deliver Standard Delivery orders within 2-3 working days, but there may be a slightly longer delivery period during busy periods such as Christmas and Sale times.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee a specific delivery date for Standard Delivery orders. If you require your order to arrive on a particular date we suggest you use our Next Working Day service.
Once your order is displayed as ‘Shipped’ please remember to allow 3 working days for your order to arrive. Again, at busier times of the year, such as Christmas, postal services can slow down, so we ask you to wait 5 working days after your order is ‘Shipped’ before contacting us.
For destinations outside the UK you will have to allow a certain amount of additional days for delivery. Please check our Delivery Charges page for information.
Please note that all parcels require a signature upon delivery.
You can track your Standard Delivery order directly from the Royal Mail website using the consignment number contained in your order confirmation email.
Remember that if you have a query relating to any information held on the courier's website you must contact them directly.
If a delivery has been attempted and you have received a card from the courier, please contact the courier directly to arrange another delivery or to pick up the parcel from your local sorting office. If you have followed the instructions above and still have not received your order, please contact us with your query and order number.
Next Working Day Orders
You can track your Next Working Day Delivery order directly from the Royal Mail website using the consignment number contained in your order confirmation email. Remember that if you have a query relating to any information held on the courier's website you must contact them directly.
If you are expecting delivery of your order today (i.e. your order was placed by 3.00pm on the previous Working Day (Monday–Thursday, except bank holidays)), please allow for delivery to take place by 1.00pm. Royal Mail delivers the package and requires a signature.
If a delivery has been attempted and you have received a card from the courier, please contact the courier directly to arrange another delivery or to pick up the parcel from your local sorting office.
If you have followed the instructions above and still have not received your order, please contact us with your query and order number.
I’m not going to be in when you deliver my parcel. What will happen?
The carrier will leave you a card informing you that delivery has been attempted. On this card will be instructions on how to obtain the parcel. Alternatively, you may wish to provide an alternative delivery address at the time of order, for instance a work address. However, please try to be as detailed as possible with the address to ensure safe delivery of your parcel.
Questions about returns
How do I return an item?
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, simply return the item or items to us in their original condition with in 14 working days of receipt. We will issue a full refund on receipt or if you prefer, will exchange the item for you.

If an item you have received appears to be faulty, please contact us, quoting your order number, name, address and a contact telephone number. Please also provide details of the problem and we will aim to deal with your request as soon as possible.
I received the wrong item
If the item you received is not what you originally ordered, please contact us quoting your order number, your name and address, details of the product and the reason for return, and whether you require a refund or a replacement. We will then advise on how to proceed with the return.
How long will it take to refund me?
All refunds are credited to the same card with which you made your original purchase.
Before contacting us please take note of the timescales required to process a refund:
Please allow 1 working day from RECEIPT of a return for us to process a refund.
Once your refund has been initiated please allow 3 working days for it to reach your account.
This time frame is dictated by your card issuer and is outside of our control but we will process your refund immediately upon receipt of your return.
When will I receive my replacement?
Before contacting us please take note of the timescales required to process an exchange:
Please allow 1 working day from RECEIPT of a return for us to process an exchange.
Once the exchange has been processed please allow up to 3 working days for your item(s) to be delivered to you.
Please note that exchange and refund requests can take up to 5 working days from the date of posting to get to us at our warehouse.
Part of my order is missing
If you have received you order and an item is missing, please contact us quoting your order number and the missing item and any information relating to the parcel your delivery came in and they will investigate the matter further.
Why have you not refunded the delivery charge?
Delivery charges (the P&P cost you originally paid to have the order delivered to you) are non-refundable.
You have refunded me the wrong amount
It is very rare for refunds to be incorrect. However, if you feel that you have been refunded the wrong amount, please contact us with your order amount and we will be happy to assist you.
I have sent an item back for an exchange and have been charged again.
Due to our refunds and exchange system it is important to note the following:
When an item is returned for an exchange very often that item is refunded to the original card you paid with and the new item is re-charged upon despatch. This is so that our stock levels are consistently maintained.
However, if you have requested a different size of the same item, you will receive another despatch note, but this is for packing purposes and does not mean that you have been charged.
If you purchase a ring at £20.00 and return it to us requesting a bracelet at £30.00 then your original £20.00 would be refunded to your card first and the £30.00 would be charged for the new item upon despatch.
Can you confirm you have received my return?
If you specifically request us to contact you when we receive your parcel (on your returns form or in a note) we will be happy to do so.
Please note that we usually process a refund or exchange with in 1 working day of receipt of your return, so please allow enough time for it to reach us at our warehouse.
If you have returned your items to us more than 7 working days ago, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
