16. SHOP WITH US ONLINE IN THE UK!
Please note, we currently can sell & deliver to UK based customers only.
UK Customers have the choice to purchase through the website or order over the phone directly and pay using our secure Credit Card machine in the Frome shop when you collect.
You can have your order posted to any UK address or you can pay and collect from the Frome store. Please note you will be advised by email or telephone when your order will be ready to collect, if collecting in-store.
For any order placed by telephone the address that your Credit Card is registered to, must match the address the items are being posted to.
We use Royal Mail “Special Delivery” Postal Services. This is the safest way to send jewellery. It is covered by insurance and will require a signature upon delivery.
Special Delivery is guaranteed by the Post Office to arrive the next day. However, there are additional costs from the Post Office for a Saturday Delivery if posted on a Friday.
Prices depend on the weight and value of the item/s:
For example a Small Packet (from 100g up to 500g in weight) valued at £0 – £500 = Special Delivery plus our protective packaging would be £7.95p
This means that there is a minimum postage and packing fee to us of £7.95p. However we are currently offering a discounted postage deal of just £3.95.
If you are buying multiple items we will package these together to save you costs on postage, so long as the weight does not exceed 500g.
If your item is valued under £50 you will still have a ‘Royal Mail to sign for’ service which is also insured but the guarantee is for delivery within normal First class postal times rather than the 1pm next day service.
We will advise you on the total cost of postage when you check out.
We will always endeavor to dispatch the items within 24 to 48 hours of receiving payment.
We will send you an email confirming when your item/s have been posted.
Please allow up to 7 – 14 working days for orders to arrive.
