2. Contract

No contract will exist between you and Loel & Co for the sale of any product unless and until Loel & Co has accepted your order with confirmation that it has been dispatched. That acceptance will be deemed complete and will be deemed for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time Loel & Co sends an order despatched email, and payment is taken from your credit / debit card. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. Only adults (persons aged 18 and over) are entitled to enter into legally binding contracts.

3. Terms of sale

By placing an order through our website you are making an offer to Loel & Co to purchase the goods outlined in your order upon the terms described in your order.

When you place an order, we will require your name, email address, credit/debit card, phone and address details. This information is required in order to process your request or inform you of acceptance of our order. A contact phone number is needed so that we can get in touch if there is a problem with your order. We may, unless you inform us otherwise, provide our couriers with your contact phone number in case they need to reach you to arrange the delivery of your order.

After placing an order online, we will provide you with confirmation that your order has been received but this is not confirmation that your offer to buy the items has been accepted. Our contract for the sale of our products will only exist once an order has been accepted, processed and dispatched to you.
Please note that we will not be able to meet any obligations as a result of the following reasons:
•    If the product you ordered is out of stock
•    We are unable to authorise your payment
•    If it is identified that there is a product description or pricing error
•    If customers do not reach any order criteria outlined in the Terms & Conditions
•    If our delivery companies are temporarily unable to deliver due to exceptional conditions that are beyond our control including hazardous weather and accidents.

Should there be an issue with your order, we will contact you either by phone or email. Please ensure that you check all items on receipt, as faulty or damaged items must be reported within 7 days.

Loel & Co reserve the right to reject any offer of purchase by you at any point. Please note that whilst we will make every effort and reasonable care to keep your order details and payment secure, we cannot be responsible for any loss you may suffer if a third party procures unauthorised access to any information that you supply when accessing or ordering from the Loel & Co website.

6. Returns

If you are for any reason not entirely satisfied with your purchase
we are happy to offer a 7 day full refund and exchange policy.
Our terms are:
To arrange a return, or if the item you received is faulty, or is not what you originally ordered, please email info@loel.co.uk within 7 days of receiving the goods quoting the following:
·       your original order number
·       your name and address
·       details of the product you are returning & the reason for return
·       whether you require a refund or exchange/replacement.

We will then advise on how to proceed with the return.
All products to be returned must be carefully re-packaged in their original packing, with original tags and be in an unworn condition. We will not exchange goods that have been worn, do not have their original packaging, their tags have been removed, or show obvious signs of abuse. In this instance, the goods will be returned to the buyer at their own cost.

You must return your purchase within 7 days of notifying us. Refunds and exchanges will not be issued if you do not return your purchase within 7 days of notifying us of your request.
Please note, the return is your responsibility until it reaches us. For your own protection, we recommend that you send the parcel using a delivery service that insures you for the value of the goods. We cannot be held responsible for returns that are lost in transit. If you are returning goods from outside of the EU you must attach a customs declaration describing the goods as “BRITISH RETURNED GOODS” stating that the products are being returned because they are either unwanted or faulty.

If you are returning an item to us for a refund or an exchange, the cost of returning the item to us is your responsibility. Your original postage costs will not be refunded unless the item you received was sent in error or is faulty (providing we are notified of faults within 7 days of receipt).
In the case of an exchange, please remember to state clearly, the piece of jewellery you require. Should the required piece be unavailable and provided the jewellery is in its original unworn condition and returned with the original packaging within 7 days of notifying us, a refund will be issued.

Exempt from our refund policy are:      
·       especially commissioned bespoke jewellery
·       earrings are exempt from refunds/exchanges due to hygiene reasons

When ordering Rings, it is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that they have ordered the correct size.
If you are returning a gift we have to refund the person who paid for it. We are happy to exchange your gift but we will also have to inform the original purchaser.
In the interests of fraud prevention, your refund will be issued by the same method that you paid within 28 days of receipt of the return.

If your order is returned to us because the courier or postal service could not complete the delivery to you for whatever reason, then you will be responsible for the repeat delivery costs.
You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been dispatched to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.

8. Packaging

Your jewellery will be sent to you in Loel and Co case and box.
Please rest assured that we always package our items securely and safely.
 
9. Late and Lost Deliveries

If your delivery has been delayed, then please contact us and we will provide you with the tracking number if available to enable you to chase it up with our courier or delivery service.
We cannot refund or replace lost items until 20 working days after the date of despatch (30 days for international items) - this is when the Royal Mail classes items as being lost.

International delivery - When items are sent to another country, your parcel is often handled by more than one postal service. Unfortunately that means delivery problems are more likely. When we send a parcel abroad, the actual delivery of the item will be the responsibility of the postal service in the country the items are going to. Delays can often be caused by customs checks, which can sometimes take up to 1-2 weeks.

Items not received but tracked as being delivered - This frequently happens when items are delivered to places of work. In some cases, your item might have been delivered to a post room or colleague within your company and someone else will have signed for it. In these cases for a small charge, you can request a proof of delivery certificate from Royal Mail (www.royalmail.com) by filling in a signature request form. Please note that we do not refund or replace items that are tracked as being delivered. For this reason, we always recommend that you get items delivered to your home address.
Loel & Co cannot be held responsible for goods that are lost or delayed in transit.
