All items received by the company will be processed within 30 days. Postage costs are only refunded to you by the company when either an error has occurred of which we accept responsibility or the product / service is faulty, although in the case of antique and vintage jewellery this will be strongly assessed by Jewels May as without provenance with the items we cannot guarantee perfect condition as age and wear will affect the condition to varying degrees.
Purchases of over £100 are delivered to the customer free of charge and all items are sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery and will need to be signed for so please ensure that you are available to sign for your purchase in person as Jewels May will not be held liable for items signed for on your behalf by a third party, it is the customers sole responsibility to accept the delivery of their own items.

The company does however accept its responsibility to provide such products / services as paid for. As such all postal losses or delays will be dealt with no sooner than 14 working days from dispatch at which point a further investigation will be launched with the potential resolution that the customer will be offered an alternative or a full refund. To make a claim please contact Royal Mail with your personal tracking number.
Please note Royal Mail Special Delivery, although it states ‘next day’ this is not always guaranteed but by using your tracking number on Royal Mail’s website you can fairly accurately assess your delivery time.

If such a fault with any product / service available from this website should arise the item must be returned to the company for examination before any further action can be taken. You the customer will incur the cost and responsibility of return of said items until safely delivered to the registered premises of Jewels May. The company must be informed via any form of communication available on the websites “contact us” page that said items are being returned as faulty before receipt of the item and all items must be sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery and signed for by staff at Jewels May, items sent by ‘regular post’ are sent at the customers own risk.
