We will accept your order by way of email confirmation. That is when our contract is made. Our email will also confirm details of your purchase and tell you when we will dispatch your order.
We may change these terms from time to time. The terms that apply to you are those posted here on our Website on the day you order Products.
If in the future, you buy Products from us under any arrangement which does not involve your payment via our Website, these terms still apply.
YOUR ACCOUNT WITH US
You agree that you have provided and will continue to provide accurate and complete information about yourself. We require this information to provide you with the Products that you order.
If you use our Website, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for preventing any unauthorized person from using your account.

You agree that any username or email address selected by you, does not interfere with the rights of any third party and has not been selected for any unlawful purpose and that if we believe such selection does interfere with the rights of any third party or is being selected for any unlawful purpose, we may suspend the use of such name or email address, and you will indemnify us for any claim or demand that arises out of your selection.
We reserve the right to refuse you access to our Website at any time.
We do our best to ensure the images of the Products give you a good indication of what they look like in our showroom. However, please note that images are for illustrative purposes only. Although we make every effort to display Products accurately, as they are handmade, it is not always possible to accurately reflect colour, size, dimensions and texture through digital displays on web browsers. Your Products therefore may vary slightly from the images displayed on our Website.
If you wish to cancel your order, please notify us via email at email@example.com as soon as possible. Regrettably, once an order has been dispatched, it cannot be canceled, and must be returned via our standard returns method, if returns are acceptable for your order.
The Sara Esther Jewellery Bespoke Service invites you to create a timeless, one of a kind modern heirloom. If you are interested in creating a Bespoke Product, please contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need your timeline and a rough budget. If you are looking to create a bespoke ring, we will also need your ring size.
We want to get the design perfect for you before we go ahead with production, so please consider allowing some time to finalize this project, especially if there are amendments to be made to the design. Once your Bespoke Product is ready, we will contact you to arrange collection or delivery. Please be aware that as Bespoke Products are one-offs, they cannot be returned for a refund or exchange.
MADE TO ORDER PRODUCTS
Products bought from our Website that are made to order will take approximately 4-6 weeks to be produced and delivered to you. However lead times may vary from product to product due to the availability of the materials used.
Once your order has been placed, products will be placed into production almost immediately. Please let us know as soon as possible if you need to cancel your order, as once products have been placed into production, cancellations will not be possible.
Please be aware that as made to order products are one-offs, they cannot be returned for a refund or exchange.
PRICES AND PAYMENT
We endeavour to keep prices of Products updated and accurate, though from time to time there may be inaccuracies or changes to price. Changes to price will not affect any order you have already placed. Prices for our Products are subject to change without notice.
It is always possible that Products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. In this case, we will not send your order until you have confirmed that you accept the new price or if you wish to cancel your order.
The price of a Product includes BE VAT (where applicable).
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges will be advised during the checkout process, before you place your order.

You confirm that the payment method used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner to use it. All credit/debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
If any product is out of stock, you will be refunded in full.
We endeavour to dispatch Products which are in stock within 1-2 working days, however during busy periods dispatch may take slightly longer. We ship all orders through BPost delivery. Please ensure that someone is present to accept and sign for your delivery.
