I work hard to provide exceptional customer service. Please check out my store policies below to understand exactly how I operate. Contact me if you have further questions and I’ll be happy to help. 

Elizabeth Gault Jewellery Shipping Policy

How quickly will my order be dispatched?


All items in stock will be sent within 3 working days.

If I cannot dispatch your order within 3 working days, I will get in touch and let you know when it will be dispatched.

Please check individual listings for lead times on made to order designs.


What shipping method will you use to send my order?


Please note, ALL orders will require a signature on receipt and therefore cannot be sent to PO Box or Mail Receiving Centre addresses.

If you think you may miss your postal delivery, I can post to a work or family address where someone is guaranteed to be in.

However, I can only post to the delivery address you provide in your order details, no alternative addresses can be accepted by email or any other form of correspondence.

UK Standard delivery: 1st Class Signed For.

UK orders over £50: Royal Mail Special Delivery for insurance purposes.

For international orders, if Royal Mail International Tracked and Signed is available for your country of origin, this service will be used. If not, Royal Mail International Signed will be used.

International Tracked and Signed offers full tracking from dispatch to delivery.

International Signed does not offer tracking outside of the UK but confirms delivery.

International Express Shipping Upgrade: Courier service

I will send your tracking number when I confirm I have dispatched your order. You will be able to then track your order via the service provider.


How long will it take for my order to arrive after dispatch?


UK Standard Free Delivery: 1st Class Signed For

Royal Mail aim to deliver this service the next working day, including Saturdays, but it may take longer.

UK orders over £50: Royal Mail Special Delivery

Royal Mail aim to deliver this service by 1pm the next working day, excluding Saturdays.

International Postal Services can be notorious for customs delays. Unfortunately, there is nothing I, nor the postal delivery service providers, can do to avoid these potential delays. Please remember, I am not responsible for any delays to your delivery due to processing though customs.

From experience, I recommend anticipating delivery within 7-14 working days, however, this could be 21 working days around high traffic times of year (I’m thinking Christmas, specifically!)

International Express Shipping Upgrade: Courier service

Delivery varies depending on courier and service selected. I will consult with you directly to ensure an agreeable outcome.


Do I have to pay any customs or import taxes?


Potentially, I’m afraid so. I am not responsible for paying your taxes for you.

You are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. You should be able to get guidance from your domestic customs service as to what charges to expect.


Undeliverable Orders


If your order is returned to me because it is undeliverable due to an inaccurate shipping address provided by yourself, or if you don’t claim your package from the sorting centre, I cannot be held responsible.

Under these circumstances, you will be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the package.

Should your order be returned to me undelivered and you do not wish to have the package re-shipped, I will cancel the order. I will also cancel the order if your parcel is returned to me undelivered and you do not respond to notification of this within 3 working days.

In both these instances, a refund will be issued for the value of the items ordered only. If you chose a shipping upgrade when you ordered, this upgrade will not be refunded as it is not standard postage.


Elizabeth Gault Jewellery Refund Policy


I don't like what I've ordered / It doesn't go with my outfit / I've changed my mind, can I return my order?


Yes. Under UK law, you have the right to terminate the contract and return the item even if the item is not faulty in any way. You have the right to do this up to 14 days after receipt of the items.

If you wish to return an order, you MUST contact me before sending your package. This is a legal requirement, however, out of courtesy, I do ask that you let me know that you are returning your order. If I know I am awaiting a parcel I can keep an eye out for it and process your refund more swiftly.

If you wish to exchange an order, please do get in touch so I can make sure I have a suitable alternative in stock for you.

If you change your mind about your order before I have dispatched it, please do contact me by email to request a cancellation. I aim to dispatch in-stock items with 1-3 working days, so please do let me know as soon as possible.


What are the exceptions to the refund policy?


I regret that I am unable to offer refunds or exchanges on products that are bespoke, made to measure or customised in any way.

These items are exempt from these conditions under UK law.


Elizabeth Gault Jewellery Cancellation/Return/Exchange Policy


Where should I send the return to?


Your package will be sent with a return address label on it, but here is the address again:

Elizabeth Gault, Ladies Walk, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4XX, United Kingdom


Do I have to pay the cost of the delivery for returns?

Yes, I’m afraid you are responsible for this cost.

All returns must be in an unworn, unmarked, as new condition and complete with any original tags in place. If the items show any wear, beyond what may be the result of handling the item to check it is what you have ordered, a deduction will be made from your refund.

I recommend that you return in original packaging or use sufficient protective packing materials to prevent damage to the item in transit. Should any damage occur to package during its return, you will be responsible for any loss in value.

I also recommend getting proof of postage. This doesn’t have to be a tracked/signed for service unless you want that security, or it is required by Royal Mail based on the insurance value of your order. Please do get a Certificate of Postage at the very minimum, as it could affect the timely processing of your refund.

Please note, I cannot be held responsible for lost or damaged returned goods that have not been correctly insured.


Will I be refunded for everything I have paid?

If your returned order has not been damaged due to insufficient packing during return, and does not show any signs of wear, you will receive a full refund for the cost of the item.

If you chose a shipping upgrade when you ordered, this upgrade will not be refunded as it is not standard postage.


When will I receive my refund?


Depending which happens first, I will issue your refund within 14 days of either receiving your return package, or you providing evidence that the order has been returned (e.g. proof of postage or a tracking number).


What happens if the item I have ordered is faulty?

I spend a lot of time sourcing the best quality materials for my designs and ensuring the quality of the products I make. However, should I have missed something, you have a right to return faulty goods. You can do this up to six months after receipt of the goods.

Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to a refund (full or partial), a repair or replacement.

You will be required to send photos of the item to allow me to assess which option is most appropriate.


What happens if my order doesn’t arrive?

If your order is lost in transit, I must assume that the contract for your order is terminated. In these circumstances, I will provide either a replacement item, or if this not possible, a refund.

However, I am bound by the conditions of Royal Mail’s policy regarding lost packages. Royal Mail do not consider a package lost until the below timescales have passed:

UK 1st Class Signed For: 10 working days after due date

UK Royal Mail Special Delivery: 5 working days after due delivery date/time

For information about potential shipping times for international orders, please see my Shipping Policy relating to delivery timescales.


Undeliverable Orders

If your order is returned to me because it is undeliverable due to an inaccurate shipping address provided by yourself, or if you don’t claim your package from the sorting centre, I cannot be held responsible.

Under these circumstances, you will be responsible for the cost of re-shipping the package.

Should your order be returned to me undelivered and you do not wish to have the package re-shipped, I will cancel the order. I will also cancel the order if your parcel is returned to me undelivered and you do not respond to notification of this within 3 working days.

In both these instances, a refund will be issued for the value of the items ordered only. If you chose a shipping upgrade when you ordered, this upgrade will not be refunded as it is not standard postage.


Privacy Notice

This Privacy Notice describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk or any third-party services you access through thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk.

You can visit the thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices here https://thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/TBCH-LtdPrivacy-Policy-3.pdf


1) Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for example information relating a custom order) if you contact me directly.


2) Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• when you have provided your affirmative consent for direct marketing from myself. This is only applicable if you have signed up to my mailing list and you may revoke this consent at any time;

• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk Seller Policy and Terms of Use.


3) Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk. I share information with thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk Seller Policy and thebritishcrafthouse.co.uk Terms of Use.

• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.


4) Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.


5) Transfers of Personal Information Outside the UK and EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the UK and EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Stripe (payments), Mailchimp (mailing list), Dropbox (accounts) and Google Cloud and Microsoft Outlook (email) are Privacy Shield certified.


6) Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
