The terms that are valid and apply to you are the ones posted here on Our website on the day you make the purchase of your goods. Nevertheless, we may revise, modify and edit these terms occasionally.
If in future, you buy goods from us under any arrangement which does not involve your payment via our website, these terms still apply.

You agree that you have given and provided and will continue to provide accurate and complete information about yourself. This information is required in order to be able to provide you with the goods that you order.
If you use this website, you are in charge of maintaining the confidentiality of your own account and password and for preventing any unauthorised person from using your account.

3. Made-to-order & bespoke items
Personalisation services, such as engraving or changes to the design, may be available on selected items. If you wish to have your pieces personalised, please contact us with your request and we will let you know whether it will be possible, along with an estimated lead-time and quote. If we produce any items to measurements received by you or are providing resizing or engraving services, you are responsible for ensuring that the measurement and engraving instructions are correct. We reserve the right to withhold or refuse acceptance of any order for personalised pieces. Please contact us for bespoke enquiries, such as engagement rings or other custom design requests (“bespoke”). For bespoke pieces we work with a minimum order value, which we will discuss with you whilst handling your enquiry. All sales of products that have been personalised or otherwise made to your bespoke specifications are final and cannot be cancelled or returned to us for exchange or refund.
4. Prices and payment
We try and make an effort to keep our website prices updated and accurate. However, there may be inaccuracies on price occasionally. If this happens and it is your case, we will not send your purchase until you have confirmed to us that you accept the new price. Prices for our products are subject to change without notice.
Banking charges by the receiving bank on payments to us will be absorbed by us. All other charges relating to payment in a currency other than British pound sterling will be absorbed by you.
You agree to pay all charges at the prices then in effect for your purchases and any applicable shipping fees, and you authorise us to charge your chosen payment provider for any such amounts upon placing your order.
The shipping costs are quoted separately upon confirmation of the order, before payment, and are based on the delivery option selected and the weight and characteristics of the ordered piece. These shipping costs are thus billed in addition to the price of the item(s) ordered, without exception, and are clearly stated.
For all items delivered outside UK overseas departments and territories, Sarah Madeleine Bru advises the customer that customs duties or other local taxes, import duties, or national taxes may be due insofar as the customer is considered the importer of these Products. Sarah Madeleine Bru is not liable for paying these duties and taxes. The customer will be wholly responsible for such duties and taxes, both in terms of declarations and payments made to the appropriate authorities and government bodies of the importing country.
We reserve the right to refuse any order placed through the site. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person, per household, or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same payment method, and/or orders that use the same billing or shipping address. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers, or distributors.
The price must be paid in full when ordering and it includes UK VAT. The following payment methods are accepted: by bank card (Mastercard, etc.). Payment will be debited and cleared from your account upon dispatch of your order by Sarah Madeleine Bru. You confirm that the credit/debit card that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorised by the owner of the credit/debit card to use it. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to Sarah Madeleine Bru, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.
5. Production time & delivery
Since all our pieces are made-to-order, your item(s) will take between one to six weeks to be produced and then shipped to you. The shipping times may vary depending on your location. We ship all orders through registered, recorded delivery, and are happy to help with any urgent delivery requests.
You must ensure that someone is present to accept delivery and we do not cover customs and duty payments for orders outside the UK. Goods are sent at our risk until signed for by you or by any other person at the address you have given to us. We will send you a message by email to tell you when we have dispatched your order.
Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, for most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 14 days and receive a refund. However, there is no legal right to change your mind in respect of items which are made to your specifications or are personalised. The 14-day period starts the day after the day you, or someone you nominate, receives the items, unless your items are split into several deliveries over different days. In this case you have until 14 days after the day you, or someone you nominate, receives the last delivery to change your mind about the items.
To request to end the contract with us and wish to swap or return an item for a refund, you are exercising your right to change your mind. Please contact us at email@example.com and provide your name, home address, order number, and your phone number.
Unless an item is being returned due to faultiness, we do not cover the cost of any return shipments and it is your responsibility to return the items to us safely within the first 14 days of receiving your order.
We will ask you to post them back to us. We recommend that you insure the return shipment, as you are under a duty to take reasonable care of the goods and will be liable for damage to them until we receive them back. We also recommend that you use a secure, trackable shipping method to return your order to the address we will provide you with and retain proof of sending, in case of a dispute.

Once we have received the order back, it will be carefully inspected and we have the right to refuse the acceptance of the return, if the item(s) has not been returned in its original condition, if part of the jewellery box is missing or if the item(s) show signs of wear.
If your refund is approved, then it will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days. We may make deductions from the price as follows:
- to reflect any reduction in the value of the items if they are not in the same condition as they were in when they were supplied.
- to reflect any loss or damage caused as a result of your failure to follow our returns guidelines.
Your items should be sent back to us within 14 days of receiving your order. Returns outside this time frame may be accepted at our discretion.
If you have any questions or complaints about an item, please email us at email@example.com
Returning faulty Products will be arranged free of charge. As per The Consumer Rights Act 2015 the Products sold to you must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. The agreed refunds will be transferred back to you as soon as possible.
