Process for online orders and cancellations
Ordering process and contract formation
By completing and submitting an electronic order, you are making an offer to purchase goods which, if accepted by us, will result in a binding contract.
Certain steps must be followed for a binding contract to be formed between us, which are described below. After you have placed your order:
We will send you an email to acknowledge your order. It will confirm which goods you have ordered. This email is not an order acceptance from us and at this stage no contract is formed between us;
When we dispatch your goods from the warehouse, we will send you a confirmation email. This email constitutes a formal acceptance of your order by us. This also means that a binding contract between us is formed and you and we are obliged to fulfil our obligations under that binding contract.
Payment will be processed and taken when the order is placed with us. This is not an order confirmation or order acceptance from us.
Please note that orders will only be dispatched once we have authorisation from your payment card issuer. We will aim to inform you as soon as possible if there is an issue with the payment authorisation process or with any validation checks for your order. We will not accept your order if payment is not authorised. Where there are issues with the authorisation process or validation checks, your delivery may be delayed as a result.
We do not have to accept your order, and in particular, we will not accept your order if:
- we do not have the goods in stock/the goods in stock appear to be damaged;
- your payment is not authorised;
- there is an error on our website regarding the price or other details of the goods;
- you have cancelled your order in accordance with the instructions below
- we will be in contact with you as soon as we can in each of the above circumstances to discuss your options.
We reserve the right to refuse any order.
Cancelling an order before dispatch
If you change your mind after placing an order, you can cancel it at any time before we have sent our Dispatch Email to you. Please see the Contact Us page for our telephone number and email. To cancel your order, you will need to give us your name and address details, as well as your order number.
Returning goods after dispatch
Cooling off period
When you order from us online, you are entitled to a cooling off period after dispatch of your goods. During this cooling-off period, you can return your goods without any charge. Our cooling off period is 14 days (from delivery of the goods to you) which includes any statutory cooling off period.
This period starts the day the contract is agreed and becomes binding (i.e. you receive a Dispatch Email from us) and ends 14 days after the day following delivery of the goods.
Unless we are at fault (for example where you have received faulty items, or items which are not as described), certain items are excluded from the cooling off period guarantee: these include pierced items where their packaging has been opened
If you do receive faulty goods, please follow one of the procedures outlined on the How to Return Items page.
Returning a gift
Refunds for gifts can only be made to the payment card used to purchase the goods. So if you buy a gift online, the recipient will not be able to get a refund.
Please refer to our Delivery & Returns Policy page for details of how and where to return goods.
If you wish to return goods you have a duty to keep them in your possession and to take reasonable care of them until you return them. Goods must be returned in their original condition, including immediate packaging, within the cooling off period.
We accept refunds or exchanges of pierced items provided they are returned in their original (unopened) packaging.
Our returns policy does not affect your statutory rights. For further information on your statutory rights look at www.consumerdirect.gov.uk.

Our aim is to keep diamonds free of conflict.
Here at Atkinsons the Jeweller we consider the sourcing of Diamonds to be a very important issue. To the best of our knowledge our stones are not involved in funding conflict.
What are Conflict Diamonds?
When Diamonds are sold to fund illegal operations by rebel, military or terrorist groups they are referred to as Conflict Diamonds.

We are a member of the NAJ and abide by their stringent code of Ethics. The NAJ takes this code very seriously and any member found in violation of this policy will have their membership withdrawn.
