Terms & Conditions
You can find detailed information regarding our terms and conditions below however here are the main points:
- We will normally send your order to you in 4 - 6 working weeks, however, as you will see from comments from customers on our Testimonials page, we make every effort to get items to you sooner if needed for a particular date or occasion. As all our pieces are made to order and as the larger crests (1 inch plus) are sent to the Assay Office for hallmarking, there is a limit to how fast we can turn orders around but we are always happy to go the extra mile if at all possible.
- All items are shipped via Royal Mail Special Delivery (UK) or International Tracked & Signed to ensure safe and reliable delivery. If an order did go missing, there are tracking numbers to trace its whereabouts. The package is also insured.
- Please note that items sent to countries outwith the UK can attract local taxes and customs charges upon delivery. These are outwith our control and we are not responsible for them.
In dealing with customers who order one-off commissions, there tends to be a lot of discussion prior to completion of the piece, so a relationship is built up with the customer in question. All the terms and conditions that apply to the on-line store pieces apply to commission customers also.
Hope this gives you the utmost confidence in ordering from us but if you have any other questions just contact us.

These terms and conditions remain valid and in force, even if one or more clauses are invalid or declared so under any law, regulation or following the final decision of a competent court.
