ORDERS AND DELIVERIES
All our jewellery is handmade in London and we make every effort in presenting the products on our website as accurately as possible. However the images you see will depend on your monitor’s display and colour capabilities. We are therefore unable to guarantee that the product images you see are an accurate representation of the actual product. Stock items will normally be dispatched within 3 to 5 working days of acceptance of an order, which will be confirmed via email. We will send you another email with the unique tracking number once the item has been dispatched. ‘Made to Order’ items will normally be dispatched within 3 to 5 weeks of acceptance of an order. We will send you a confirmation email with the unique tracking number once the item has been dispatched. Items for delivery within the UK will normally be sent using Post Office “Special Delivery” services and the cost of this will be added to your shopping bag at the time of ordering. Orders to destinations within the EU and other World destinations will normally be sent using “Royal Mail Signed For” or “Royal Mail Airsure” (depending on local mail restrictions) and the cost of this will be added to your shopping bag at the time of ordering. Other courier services can be used on request. You may contact Julien Riad Sahyoun for a quotation of an alternative service. We recommend placing your orders early at particularly busy times, (such as Christmas) to make allowances for delivery delays. Julien Riad Sahyoun will not be liable for any delays in the delivery date. All deliveries require a signature so please supply us with an address at which a parcel can be signed for. Within the UK, if you miss a delivery it should be taken to your nearest Royal Mail sorting office where you can arrange redelivery or to collect it. Risk of Julien Riad Sahyoun products shall pass to the buyer upon delivery of the products, or where the buyer fails to take delivery at the agreed time, at the time of the delivery was attempted. Title of the Julien Riad Sahyoun products shall not pass to the buyer until payment of the price has been made in full.  

ACCEPTANCE OF ORDER
Julien Riad Sahyoun's products are subject to availability. Some are held in stock and some are made to order. This will be as indicated in the shop section of the website. Once your order has been placed and payment cleared, you will receive an email acknowledging the details of your order and estimated delivery date. We reserve the right not to accept your order, if for example: the item is out of stock and we are unable to make it within a reasonable time; shipping restrictions apply to a particular item; payment has been declined; or for any other reason at our sole discretion. If a product is out of stock we will treat your order as a ‘made to order’ purchase and will inform you of the expected delivery date. If the delivery time is not suitable, you may cancel your order by email within 5 days of us sending you the estimated delivery date. In these circumstances, we will make a full refund to your credit card within thirty days. Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us.
