By making payment, you authorise the transaction and confirm that the credit/debit card is valid and that your payment details are correct. All credit/debit/PayPal transactions and payment account holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer or payment method provider.
If the issuer of your card or payment method refuses to authorise payment or the transaction is marked as fraudulent/pending due to checks, we will not accept your order until payment has been verified and approved. We will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and are not obliged to inform you of the reason for refusal.
EXCHANGES AND REFUNDS:
Can I do an exchange or get a refund?
We accept refunds and exchanges only in the event that you have received a defective product or a completely different and incorrect product which does not match the order you placed. All refunds and exchange requests for defective goods will undergo assessment before being approved or rejected. Please understand that not all cases will be approved for refund within reasonable means as a large number of our products are 100% crafted by hand, not machine, and unavoidably sustain minor scuffs and blemishes from the making process. We seek your kind understanding on this!
To be eligible for an exchange or refund, your item must also be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.
Cases regarding exchange in sizes / design will not be entertained. Please confirm your items and sizing before submitting your order.
All jewelry, with the exception of certain pure metals, will tarnish over time. This is a natural result of materials interacting with moisture in the environment. Hence, such cases will not qualify for an exchange or refund. If you’d like to prevent tarnishing, you could purchase anti-tarnish strips and/or store your jewelry away from water sources and natural materials that trap moisture. It is also advisable to keep your jewelry dry and away from sunlight.
For the safety of yourself, our staff, and all of our customers, we do not entertain returns of any body modification jewelry due to hygiene and sanitation reasons.
Are sale items refundable?
Only regular priced items may be refunded, sale items cannot be refunded.
How long does your exchange policy last?
Our exchange policy for defective items lasts 7 days. If 7 days have passed since your receipt of the item, we will unfortunately not be able to offer you a refund. Once your item is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
Are shipping costs refundable?
Shipping costs are non-refundable. If the delivery is unsuccessful, the cost of return shipping will unfortunately not be included in the refund. In the event of a refund, we will retain the original shipping cost we paid (not the amount charged to the customer).
Approved refunds will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment. There is often some processing time involved when a refund is initiated. If you haven’t received your refund yet, check your bank account again, or contact your credit card company.
How long will my exchanged product take to be delivered?
Depending on where you live, the time will vary. Consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance.

It is the responsibility of the consumer to take precaution with any sensitive tendencies he or she might have to materials (silver, steel, brass, wood etc.) or the oxidation applied to metals (liver of sulphur, prior to making a purchase. We will not be held liable for any allergic reactions that may occur as a result of wearing our jewelry.
