Once you have placed your order, you will receive an automated confirmation by email. This confirms that our system has received your order but does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order when we send you a confirmation email.

Postage and packaging is FREE on all orders over £35 within the UK mainland. Orders under this value are charged an extra £3.50 for postage and packaging. Deliveries outside of the UK mainland may be subject to an additional delivery cost. We will contact you confirming the amount before charging you.
Orders are normally sent by Royal Mail or by courier. In some instances this will require the person receiving the items to sign acceptance of these goods. If this is not possible and the goods are returned to us then we reserve the right to charge for the re-delivery of these items. If you provide us with an incorrect or incomplete delivery address which results in a failed delivery, we can re-arrange the delivery for an additional cost. Alternatively a refund can be issued less the delivery costs already paid by us and you may also be subject to a 10% re-stocking fee.
We guarantee to deliver all ex stock items within 7 working days of an order being placed. Usually orders are dispatched within 24 to 48 hours of them being received, but during busy periods this may not be possible and could take longer. If your order is urgent or you need your items by a specific date, then please contact us and we will try our best to help.
We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time, however delays are occasionally experienced, and we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late or non delivery. If we are unable to deliver within our usual delivery time (within 7 days), and cannot agree another time with you, you will be offered the opportunity to cancel your order and get a full refund. All orders placed on a Friday after 10am are normally despatched on the following Monday unless it is a Bank Holiday, whereby it will be sent on the next working day. Please Note that we do not send out items on Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holidays.
Lost, Delayed, Damaged or Missing Parcels
If your package has been sent by Royal Mail, then in the first instance please check with your neighbours, your Local Post Office or Sorting office and check if the package is with them as some Post men or women have been known not to leave a card when they can not deliver the item to you.
Orders that have been sent by Royal Mail Recorded, Signed For or Special Delivery can be tracked online and we can provide the tracking number to you if requested. We always obtain Proof of Postage for all orders. Royal Mail only consider items missing after 15 business days have elapsed since posting except for Special Delivery which is considered missing after 7 business days. If your parcel has been lost or deemed missing by Royal Mail we will start the claims procedure as soon as possible on your behalf. Once we have submitted the claim form, Royal Mail will write to you asking you to confirm if you have received the parcel or not. You will need to respond to this letter within 7 days or they will assume that you have now recieved the items and they will close the file - which will mean that we will no longer be able to make a claim for the missing order. Once you have returned the letter to Royal Mail, we can either replace the items or refund you.
You must inform us of missing orders within 15 days of postage or we will not be able to help you.
If you recieve a package that has obviously been damaged, please ensure that you inform the delivery person and ask that he/she makes a note of it. Take photographs of the damaged parcel and send these to us within 24 hours. Carefully check the contents and report any missing or damaged items to us immediately. If your parcel has been delivered by a courier company you must check the order and report any damages or missing items within 48 hours or we will not be able to make a claim.
Lost, damaged, missing or delayed parcels are very frustrating and we do understand this and will do all that we can to help. Sometimes we are helpless as parts of the claiming process is completely outside our control and we have to wait for long periods with no feedback from Royal Mail or the Courier company..
In the UK consumers have a 14 days “cooling off” period from the day they receive their goods. This means that you can cancel your order and return the goods to us within 14 days of receipt of that order. The goods have to be returned to us in an unused and unopened state suitable for resale and you are responsible for the cost of returning the goods. You do not have to have a reason for cancelling your purchase and as dictated by law, you will receive a full refund within 30 days of the order being cancelled. If you paid by card we will refund the monies to the card you originally used. For all other payment methods we will send you the refund by cheque.
There will be no further charges for any cancellations made within this 14 day period as long as the goods are unused and unopened. We suggest you use a secure delivery method which requires a signature upon delivery, as we can not be held responsible for goods damaged or lost in transit.
In the case of faulty goods we guarantee all items for a period of 2 months from the purchase date - most goods also include a manufacturers warranty for a longer period than this. Our warranty covers all manufacturing defects and does not cover faults arising from poor/improper use. Goods found to be faulty can only be exchanged for the same product and cannot be refunded.
You must contact us by email or phone before returning any goods, so we can issue you with a specific returns number.
Our workshops are extremely popular and fill up quickly. Nevertheless cancellations can cause a disruption as it may be difficult to find people to fill a space at short notice. Therefore we do have to have a cancellation policy in place, as follows:
If for some reason you can not attend a workshop and we can find a replacement for your space, we will then refund any monies you have paid less a £20 administration charge. If instead of a refund you would like to transfer onto another date then that must be no later than 3 months from the original workshop date. Please note that this is not a guarantee that we will run the same workshop within this time, nor that you can be guaranteed a place.
We at The School of Jewellery & Craft respect your privacy and will never give or share your personal information with any other company or individual unless it is part of the service we provide to you or as required under UK law.

If for reasons beyond our control, including but not limited to an inability or failure on the part of the manufacturers or suppliers of the goods to supply the goods to us, we are unable to supply the goods to you, we may cancel the agreement at any time before the goods are delivered by giving notice to you. We shall promptly repay to you any sums paid by you or on your behalf under or in relation to the agreement.
