2. Our Products
2.1 The images (and / or any drawings or designs) of the Products on our Website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the Products accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the Products accurately reflects the colour, size, scale or quality of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images (and / or drawings or designs).
2.2 All sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our Website have a 2% ‘tolerance allowance’ and / or such other greater tolerance allowance as we shall decide to be reasonable in the circumstances in our reasonable opinion and in line with best industry practice. By way of an example of this tolerance allowance, if a Product is described on our Website as weighing 180 grams and it actually weighs 177 grams, we would consider this to be within the tolerance allowance. Equally, where you have provided us with your specification to produce a Custom Made Product, we will use all reasonable endeavours to meet your specification as accurately as possible in line with best industry practice but we cannot guarantee that the Custom Made Product produced will match your specification exactly and there may well be minor discrepancies between your specification and the finished Custom Made Product.
2.3 The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on our Website.
2.4 All Products shown on our Website are subject to availability. We will inform you by e-mail as soon as possible and terminate your order without any cost to you if the Product you have ordered is not available.
3. Use Of Our Website
Your use of our Website is governed by our Terms of Website Use. Please take the time to read these, as they include important terms which apply to you.
4. How We Use Your Personal Information
5. If You Are A Consumer
5.1 This clause 5 only applies if you are a consumer.
5.2 If you are a consumer, you may only purchase Products from our Website if you are at least 18 years old.
5.3 As a consumer, you have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Nothing in these Terms will affect these legal rights.
6. If You Are A Business Customer
6.1 This clause 6 only applies if you are a business.
6.2 If you are not a consumer, you confirm that you have authority to bind any business on whose behalf you use our Website to purchase Products.
6.5 You and we agree that neither of us shall have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation or negligent misstatement based on any statement in these Terms.
7. How The Contract Is Formed Between You And Us
7.1 Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. Please take the time to read and check your order before clicking through and completing our order process.
7.2 After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (“Dispatch Confirmation”). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
7.3 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, for example because that Product is not in stock or no longer available or because of an error in the price on our Website as referred to in clause 12.5, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. If you have already paid for the Products, we will refund you the full amount as soon as possible.
8. Our Right To Vary These Terms
8.1 We may revise these Terms from time to time.
8.2 Every time you order Products from us, the Terms in force at that time will apply to the Contract between you and us.
8.3 Whenever we revise these Terms in accordance with this clause 8, we will keep you informed and give you notice of this by stating that these Terms have been amended and the relevant date at the top of this page.
9. Your Consumer Right Of Return And Refund
9.1 This clause 9 only applies if you are a consumer.
9.2 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a Contract under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 during the period set out below in clause 9.5. This means that during the relevant period if you change your mind or for any other reason you decide you do not want to keep a Product, you can notify us of your decision to cancel the Contract and receive a refund. Advice about your legal right to cancel the Contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
9.3 However, this cancellation right does not apply to Custom Made Products (unless they are faulty or materially mis-described).
9.4 A Product (including a Custom Made Product) will be ‘materially mis-described’ if it does not, in our reasonable opinion, materially meet either (a) our description (and / or the image, drawing or design) of the Product on our Website and / or (b) your specification for a Custom Made Product. For example, should we (or you) describe (or specify) that a Product is made out of gold and it is in fact made out of silver, we would consider this to be mis-described in a material way. A minor discrepancy between a Product and our description of it (and / or the image, drawing or design of it on our Website) and / or the specification provided by you (if it is a Custom Made Product) will not, in our reasonable opinion, be considered to be a material mis-description. For the avoidance of doubt, we reserve the right to decide (in our reasonable opinion) whether a mis-description is a material mis-description or a minor discrepancy. For further details of what constitutes a minor discrepancy please refer to clause 2.2.
9.5 Your legal right to cancel a Contract starts from the date of the Dispatch Confirmation, which is when the Contract between us is formed. If the Products have already been delivered to you, you have a period of 30 (thirty) working days in which you may cancel, starting from the day after the day you receive the Products.
9.6 To cancel a Contract, please contact us in writing to tell us by sending an e-mail to [email protected] or by sending a letter to William May, 192 Rochdale Road, Manchester, M40 7RA or please telephone us on 0161 205 3575 to tell us. You may wish to keep a copy of your cancellation notification for your own records. If you send us your cancellation notice by e-mail or by post, then your cancellation is effective from the date you sent us the e-mail or posted the letter to us. If you call us to notify us of your cancellation, then your cancellation is effective from the date you telephone us.
9.7 You will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the Products and any applicable delivery charges. Provided that you return the Products to us in accordance with clause 9.10 and our Returns Policy, we will process the refund due to you as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 calendar days (not working days) of the day on which you gave us notice of cancellation as described in clause 9.6. If you returned the Products to us because they were faulty or materially mis-described, please see clause 9.8.
9.8 If you have returned the Products to us under this clause 9 because they are faulty or materially mis-described, we will refund the price of a defective Product in full, any applicable delivery charges, and any reasonable costs you incur in returning the item to us.
9.9 We refund you on the credit card or debit card used by you to pay or to the account from which we received payment (for instance, via BACS, PayPal or Amazon Checkout).
9.10 If the Products were delivered to you and you wish to cancel a Contract for any reason (including because the Products are faulty or materially mis-described):9.10.1 you must return the Products to us: (a) as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event within 7 (seven) working days of the effective date of cancelation which, for the avoidance of doubt would be the date you sent us the e-mail or posted the letter containing your cancellation notice or the date you telephoned us to notify us of your cancellation; and (b) in accordance with the procedure detailed in our Returns Policy .9.10.2 you have a legal obligation to keep the Products in your possession and to take reasonable care of the Products while they are in your possession.
9.11 Subject to clause 9.8 where you have cancelled a Contract in accordance with clause 9, you will be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us in accordance with clause 9.10.1 and our Returns Policy. You will not be responsible for the cost of returning the Products to us where you have cancelled the relevant Contract because the Products are faulty or materially mis-described. For the avoidance of doubt, you must still comply with clause 9.10.1 and all relevant provisions in our Returns Policy and these Terms whether you have cancelled a Contract (a) because the Products are faulty or materially mis-described or (b) for any other reason.
9.12 Details of your legal right to cancel and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in the Dispatch Confirmation.
9.13 As a consumer, you will always have legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described. These legal rights are not affected by the returns policy in this clause 9 or these Terms. Advice about your legal rights is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office.
10.1 We will endeavour to fulfil a Contract by the estimated delivery date set out in the Dispatch Confirmation unless there is an Event Outside Our Control, however, time is not of the essence in a Contract. If we are unable to meet the estimated delivery date because of an Event Outside Our Control, we will contact you with a revised estimated delivery date.
10.2 Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the delivery address specified by you in writing.
10.3 You may be entitled to free delivery for orders of £150.01 or more (including VAT). Where you have used a discount voucher or code, the total value of the order must be £150.01 or more (including VAT) after applying this discount voucher or code in order for you to qualify for free delivery. We reserve the right to alter or discontinue these provisions relating to free delivery at any time. Please note that if you cancel part of an order, we will assess whether you will then still qualify for free delivery and this will be recalculated on the part of the order that you did not cancel. For example, if your original order is for Products worth £170.00 (including VAT) and you then cancel part of the order (relating to a Product worth £30.00 (including VAT)), your order total will be below £150.01 and you will no longer qualify for free delivery. If the order has already been dispatched, or delivered, to you, we reserve the right to re-charge you for the relevant delivery costs incurred by us.
10.4 The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
10.5 You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
10.6 Further details relating to delivery, delivery options, delivery costs and approximate timescales for delivery can be found on our Delivery Information page.
11. International Delivery
11.1 We may at your cost and our sole discretion deliver to a destination outside of the UK (“International Destination”). If you wish to have Products delivered to an International Destination please contact us by email to [email protected] or telephone us on 0161 205 3575.

11.4 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be liable or responsible if you break any such law.
12. Price Of Products And Delivery Charges
12.1 The prices of the Products will be as quoted on our Website from time to time. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system. However if we discover an error in the price of Product(s) you ordered, please see clause 12.5 for what happens in this event.
12.2 Prices for our Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any order which we have confirmed with a Dispatch Confirmation.
12.3 The price of a Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
12.4 The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our Website from time to time. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our Delivery Information page.
12.5 Our Website contains a large number of Products. It is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the Products on our Website may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that:
12.5.1 where the Product's correct price is less than the price stated on our Website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the Products to you. However, if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a misspricing, we do not have to provide the Products to you at the incorrect (lower) price; and
12.5.2 if the Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our Website, we will contact you in writing as soon as possible to inform you of this error and we will give you the option of continuing to purchase the Product at the correct price or cancelling your order. We will not process your order until we have your instructions. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you provided during the order process, we will treat the order as cancelled and notify you in writing.
13. How To Pay

1.Consumer Right Of Return And Refund
Your right of return and refund is governed by our Terms . Please take the time to read these, as they include important terms which apply to you and will let you know whether the right of return and refund is available to (a) you and / or (b) the Products you have purchased (the “Refundable Products”). Please note that any Products which consist of pierced jewellery, such as earrings or belly button bars, will not be refundable due to hygiene reasons and so cannot be classed as Refundable Products.
2.Who Is Responsible For Return Costs?
2.1Subject to clause
2.2 you are responsible for the return costs (including any additional costs / fees payable when obtaining the applicable level of insurance / compensation cover as described in clause 3.1.1(c)(ii)).
2.2If you wish to return a Refundable Product and we have confirmed that it is (in our reasonable opinion) faulty or materially mis-described (as more particularly detailed in the Terms) we are responsible for the return costs but you are still responsible for ensuring that the Refundable Product is returned to us in accordance with the procedure listed at clause 3.1.2.
3.How Do You Make Returns?
3.1If you wish to return Refundable Products to us (in exchange for a refund) you must cancel a Contract in accordance with clause 9.6 of our Terms and return the Refundable Products within 7 (seven) working days of the effective date of cancellation (as defined in clause 9.6 of our Terms) in accordance with the procedure listed in clause 3.1.1 below (the “Returns Procedure”) AND, where you believe that we are responsible for refunding your return costs, the procedure (and additional requirements) specified in clause 3.1.2 below:
3.1.1If you are returning the Refundable Product by post and YOU are responsible for the return costs (pursuant to clause 9.11 of our Terms):
(a)carefully re-pack the Refundable Product in its original packaging and / or presentation box ensuring that any labels or tags that were attached to it on delivery to you are still attached and place it in the original postage parcel or box (provided that it remains fit for purpose) or a postage parcel or box that is fit for purpose and ensure that the postage parcel or box is securely sealed (the “Secure Parcel”);
(b)return the Secure Parcel to WILLIAM MAY at 192 Rochdale Road, Manchester, M40 7RA by taking it to a Post Office counter and sending it to us by Royal Mail Special Delivery (Guaranteed) and obtain a certificate of postage (which you must keep safe as you will need this as your proof of return);
(c)ensure that when you send the Secure Parcel to us by Royal Mail Special Delivery (Guaranteed) that you:
(i)clearly specify the full value of the Refundable Products (being returned) to the Post Office and / or on the relevant postage documentation (the “Value”) and for the avoidance of doubt the Value will be the purchase price you paid for the Refundable Products (and if you received a discount on the purchase price, you should ignore the discount for the purposes of calculating the Value); and
(ii)ensure that the insurance / compensation cover selected for the Secure Parcel (via the Royal Mail Special Delivery (Guaranteed) service) either (i) matches (or exceeds) the Value (of the Refundable Products to be returned) or (ii) is the maximum insurance / compensation cover which can be provided and for the avoidance of doubt you will be responsible for any additional costs / fees in respect of this insurance / compensation cover.
3.1.2If you are returning the Refundable Product by post and you believe that WE are responsible for the return costs (pursuant to clause 9.11 of our Terms) you must still follow the Returns Procedure listed at clause 3.1.1 above, but, in addition, you must also provide us with evidence of your return costs (in the form of a Post Office receipt or such other evidence as we shall deem acceptable) and a copy of your certificate of postage (the “Return Cost Evidence”). We will refund your reasonable return costs provided that you (a) are entitled to a refund of your return costs (b) follow the Returns Procedure, and (c) provide us with your Return Cost Evidence. Unless we expressly agree otherwise, the Return Cost Evidence must be sent to us by post to 192 Rochdale Road, Manchester, M40 7RA or by email to [email protected] and must be sent with a covering letter (or email) in which you (a) confirm why you believe that we are responsible for your return costs (b) request that we refund your return costs and (c) provide further details about the Refundable Product that has been returned to us so as to enable us to identify it (for example, the relevant order number and the cancellation notice which you submitted to us (if this was submitted in writing) should be provided). We reserve the right to decide, in our reasonable discretion, whether your return costs are (a) refundable in the circumstances (pursuant to our Terms) and (b) reasonable in the circumstances. Any refund of your reasonable return costs will be made when we process your refund for the Refundable Product. For the avoidance of doubt, it is your responsibility to provide us with your Return Cost Evidence and to request a refund of your return costs as soon as reasonably practicable where you believe that you are entitled to this refund pursuant to this Policy and our Terms.
3.2Refundable Products must be returned in their original condition, including all immediate undamaged packaging and presentation boxes and with all documentation provided by us to you (including, but not limited to, the delivery note, any certificates, user or ownership manuals, care and maintenance manuals and / or documents of authenticity).
