The shipping charge will be ADDED to your invoice which I will send after you have received confirmation of your order, as this varies by destination, value and weight.
ELECTRONIC TRACKING IS COMPULSORY FOR SILVER JEWELLERY regardless of value, as silver is not covered by the Royal Mail standard compensation scheme. Insurance is also required for any shipment of other jewellery over £46 in value. This means that your purchase will be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery within the UK and by Royal Mail International Signed For or Airsure, to the rest of the world.
Charges from 30 April 2012
UK : Special Delivery up to 100gm and £500 value £ 6.25
Europe: Registered Air Mail up to 100gm and £50 value £ 8.25
over £50 value £ 10.75
Rest of World:
Registered Mail or Airsure up to 100 gm and £50 value £ 8.75 / 8.95
over £50 value £ 11.25 / 11.50
If the package is small and flat it may be sent as a letter at a slightly lower rate. Likewise there will be small supplements for heavier packages.. But the main cost of shipping is the tracking and compensation service required. Shipping of non-precious metals such as pewter, copper etc valued at under £46 will be by standard first class or airmail without insurance, at correspondingly lower rates. Finally any small flat items of silver of low value may be sent by ordinary mail as letter post (eg some small pendants or earrings).
All purchases must be paid for within 7 days of invoice, which you will receive from me by email after you have submitted your order and which will be issued in UKP £, at the current rate of exchange. Contact me if any problems are anticipated. Payment options include Paypal worldwide, bank transfers within Europe, as well as personal cheques and postal orders within the United Kingdom.
The items of jewellery are clearly depicted (better than with the naked eye) and described. Additional photos can be sent on request. Nearly all the items are vintage and therefore will display signs of use. We are sure that you will be happy with your purchase, but in the event that you are not, refunds can only be given if you can provide evidence that the items are not as described or depicted, and any complaint must be communicated to us within 7 days of receipt. On reaching agreement, the item must be returned immediately, and a refund of the original payment will be made, less postage costs.
