FAQ

Order Processing and Delivery

How long will my order take?

As each piece of jewellery is handmade to order in ourLondon studio, please allow up to 14 days for UK delivery and up to 28 days for international delivery. If you need your jewellery for a specific date, please do contact us and we will do my very best to help.

Bespoke Jewellery

Our turnaround time for custom and bespoke orders depends on the type of jewellery you would like us to make for you. You can contact us by email to discuss your requirements, and once a design has been agreed upon we will be able to give you a time estimate.

How will my order arrive?

Your jewellery will arrive in a branded gift box, securely packaged in a FSC certified, fully recyclable cardboard mailing box.

UK Deliveries

Your jewellery will be sent to you by Royal Mail signed for service.  This is an insured and tracked mail service, and will need to be signed for by you. 

Your order will be posted to your billing address, so please ensure that this is accurate.

If you choose to pay via Paypal, the address linked to your Paypal account will be used as the default delivery address.

International Deliveries

Non-UK orders will be sent to you via International Tracked and Signed mail.  International postage and packing is £10.00.  Unfortunately, there are some countries we cannot post to, due to restrictions on the import of precious metals by the postal services of those countries.

Delivery time for International Tracked and Signed is quoted as 7-10 days from UK dispatch, but we have had packages take up to 28 days to arrive in the USA and Canada, so please do allow up to four weeks for international orders.

Please note that the address linked to your Paypal account will be used as the default delivery address.

Customers ordering from outside the UK may be subject to import duties, fees and taxes which are levied after the package reaches their country and the customer is responsible for such costs. In the event a package is rejected by the customer due to refusal to pay such taxes or fees upon delivery, the customer will be responsible for any costs incurred in the package being returned to me and only the balance of the purchase price will be refunded.

Customs and Import Charges

Customers ordering from outside the UK may be subject to import duties, fees and taxes which are levied after the package reaches their country and the customer is responsible for such costs. In the event a package is rejected by the customer due to refusal to pay such taxes or fees upon delivery, the customer will be responsible for any costs incurred in the package being returned to me and only the balance of the purchase price will be refunded.

Returns and Exchanges

What is your returns policy?

We want you to be happy with your purchase from Lauren Grace Jewellery, as we are proud of our quality hand crafted jewellery. However, if you do wish to return your purchase, we are happy to offer a 14 day refund and exchange policy.

We are unable to extend our returns policy for individually commissioned pieces of jewellery.

For example:
i) Pieces made up in a variation of materials or colours to the piece on offer.
ii) Where a piece of jewellery has been specially made for you.
iii) Personalised items with your name or custom text on them.

In some circumstances alterations may be possible but will incur extra costs.

Ring Sizing

When ordering rings, it is your responsibility to ensure you have ordered the correct size. If you don't know your size please visit your local jewellers where you can usually have your ring size measured. A ring can sometimes be re-sized, depending on the design, but this will be subject to a charge.

How do I go about organising a return?

Please contact us at hello@laurengracejewellery, quoting your original order number, to arrange your return. Your purchase must be unworn and received in perfect condition in the original packaging. We strongly recommend that you return your purchase fully insured through the Royal Mail Special Delivery service or international equivalent as we cannot accept any responsibility for any returned items that are lost in transit. Upon receipt of the goods in accordance with the above, we will issue a full refund of the amount paid (minus our original delivery costs), or an exchange credit as required.

If you are returning an item to us, the cost of returning the item to us is your responsibility. Your original postage costs will not be refunded unless the item was sent in error or is faulty (providing we are notified of faults within 7 days of receipt). We will not refund any duties payable on orders outside of the EU.

Ethics and Responsibility

What precious metals do you use?

We use recycled eco silver and eco gold wherever possible. Lauren Grace Jewellery is also a Fairtrade Gold registered jeweller.

Where is your jewellery manufactured?

Each and every piece of jewellery made by Lauren Grace Jewellery is manufactured in London, UK. We use high quality, British manufactured chain in all of our pieces and our casting and plating (when not done in the studio) is carried out by carefully vetted small UK companies.

Do you use ethical gemstones?

We only use lab-grown diamonds and gemstones, and gemstones from reputable, ethical sources, so you can be certain your jewellery is conflict-free.
