We reserve the right to charge an additional delivery fee should it be required. Our liability for any delay in delivery is limited to re-delivery at a later agreed time at no additional charge.
We have outsourced all delivery and collection arrangements to third party service providers. Accordingly, we cannot, to the extent permitted by law, be liable for any loss or damage caused by them.
All orders will be delivered with a copy of your invoice and for all jewellery items over R5000 an NWJ valuation certificate will be issued.

This diamond testing will be stated on the NWJ valuation certificate.
