Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of a valuation certificate?

All jewellery that you purchase from us comes with a free valuation certificate.  The valuation shows the RRP (Recommended Retail Price) of the item which is required by insurance companies as the retail price of the item for replacement purposes.  The valuation will come with the name of the person who placed the order for the item so also acts as a proof of ownership. 

Can I return earrings?

Yes.  We are able to steralise earrings if returned so are happy for customers to return their Diamond Earrings if necessary.

Can I have my order delivered to an Alternate Address to my billing address?

Yes.  You will be prompted to enter the required delivery address at checkout.  Please note that if you wish to pay with finance arranged through 'Pay4later' then the item can only be sent to your billing address.

What diamond quality is used?

All diamonds set in our jewellery are a minimum of Clarity SI and Colour G/H.  All of our diamonds come with a Diamond Certificate which is issued once we have checked and verified the quality of the diamond set in the jewellery.  The diamond colour and clarity that we use in each item is shown next to "Diamond Quality" in the ‘Summary of Details’ section of all product pages.   The diamonds that we set in our jewellery are carefully selected by our strict quality control team, therefore occasionally the diamond grade on the certificate is better than what we have stated on the product page!

Are your diamonds conflict free?

All our diamonds have been sourced ethically through legitimate suppliers.  We partner with suppliers who take this matter very seriously and guarantee that all diamonds are sourced ethically.  Our suppliers guarantee that all diamonds come through a government and UN backed process introduced in 2003 know as the ‘Kimberley Process’.  The Kimberley process is now law in all EU countries (as well as many other countries worldwide) and works very affectively to regulate the flow of rough diamonds into the market, ensuring conflict diamonds are excluded from the supply chain.

Is your jewellery nickel free?

Nickel is a substance that can be used in white gold, however it can be harmful if it comes in direct contact with the skin for prolonged periods.  For this reason, in the UK and Europe, the use of Nickel in jewellery is regulated under the Dangerous Substances and Preparations (Nickel Safety) Regulation 2005.  All our items are manufactured to fully comply by the UK and EU regulations that apply to the use of Nickel in Jewellery.

Are the products hallmarked?

It is a legal requirement in UK for precious metal jewellery to be hallmarked by an independent Assay Office.  The only exemptions are for those items which fall below 1g weight for gold, 7.78g for silver and 0.50g for Platinum.  The law applies to all items sold in UK regardless of where they are made, which means that nowhere else in the world are consumers better protected for jewellery purchased than in UK.  All our products are hallmarked by the Assay Office as stipulated by the law in UK.

What is Rhodium plating?

18k white gold is made with 75% gold, with the remaining 25% being an alloy of other white metals such as silver and palladium.  As 75% of the metal is a naturally yellow metal (gold), even after combining this with a white alloy, the end result gives 18ct white gold a grey colour with a slight shade/tint of yellow.  This is the natural colour of white gold.  Once the jewellery is made, it is plated with Rhodium which is a precious white metal that gives it a wonderful white shine.  Rhodium plating can wear away eventually through normal wear and tear but to keep jewellery looking its best, the item can easily be re-rhodium plated to bring it back to new.  How long the rhodium plating lasts is dependent on the wear and tear that the product of jewellery receives, so normally the rhodium plating on necklaces and earrings will last much longer than it would on rings and bangles.  All our 9K and 18k white gold is rhodium plated to give it the beautiful finish that you want to see is all white gold jewellery.
