BASIS OF SALE
3.1. What these terms cover: these are the terms and conditions on which we supply Goods to you.
3.2. Why you should read the terms: please read these terms carefully before you submit your order to us. These terms tell you who we are, how we will provide the Goods to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is
a problem and other important information. If you think there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us to discuss.
3.3. Goods may vary slightly from their picture: any samples, drawings, or advertising we issue are produced solely to provide you with an approximate idea of the Goods they describe. In particular:-
3.3.a whenever metal weights or carat weights are quoted, these are the average for all pieces in that design;
3.3.b where we offer rings in multiple sizes, the weight will be the average across all pieces in all sizes;
3.3.c where an item is hand-made or hand-crafted, the variance between the average and any one piece may increase;
3.3.d throughout the jewellery industry, many gemstones undergo some form of treatment to enhance their appearance or durability. Therefore you should assume that any gemstones you purchase from us are treated. For more details of typical
treatments, please see our website; and
3.3.e whilst we always endeavour to ensure the specified origin of all gemstones is accurate, as some gems are sourced already faceted we cannot always verify the reported origin.
3.4. How we will accept your order: our acceptance of your order will take place (a) when we email you to accept it, or (b) if you have not provided us with your e-mail address, when we ship your order, at which point a contract will come into
existence between you and us. Receipt of an order by our Help Team or via our website, or assignment of an order number to your order does not constitute our acceptance of an order.
3.5. If we cannot accept your order: if we are unable to accept your order, we will inform you of this either by telephone or in writing and will not charge you for the Goods. This might be because the Goods are out of stock, because of unexpected
limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the Goods, because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified, or if we do not wish to supply you
for any reason whatsoever.
3.6. Your order number: we will assign an order number to your order and tell you what it is when we receive your order, but providing an order number does not constitute our acceptance of your order, which will happen only in accordance with
clause 3.4. It will help us if you can quote the order number whenever you contact us about your order.
3.7. Our TV Presentation Procedure and Policies: any order placed through or as a result of our television programs (whether by telephone, internet or any other method) shall be subject to our TV Presentation Procedure and Policies.

our EEE products are marked accordingly with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol and a date mark. For disposal of these items please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk and type in your postcode to find your nearest recycling point. This is also a good place
to get tips on recycling other household items and to find out what else you can do to help the environment. Alternatively, call your local council who will be able to tell you where to find your nearest recycling points.
The waste electrical or electronic equipment (WEEE) directive requires countries to maximise separate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (Including retailers) must provide a system, which
allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge.
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be recycled saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle electrical equipment it will end up in a landfill where hazardous
substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.

8.4. Frequency of applying delivery charges: we will charge you one delivery charge per order, regardless of the quantity of Goods ordered. If you add to the order within the same Order Period, you will still only be charged once for delivery.
Deliveries to multiple addresses will require multiple orders and multiple delivery charges. If you order "Same Day Shipping", where available, you may not add additional items to that order.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE GOODS
9.1. How to tell us about problems: If you have any questions or complaints about the Goods, please contact us. You can telephone our customer service team at 0800 001 4433 or by writing to us at [email protected] or Customer Services VisibleImage, Unit 2D, Eagle Road, Redditch, B98 9HF.

The validity of a claim of faulty goods will be determined by Sewing Street or a recognised agent.
9.3. What happens if the Goods become faulty after 30 days: if the Goods become faulty after 30 days but within six months of receipt, we will offer our choice of a refund of amounts paid, replacement or repair unless we, at our sole discretion,

9.5. Insuring your return: we are not liable for returned Goods which are lost or damaged in transit, so it is important that you use an insured delivery method as set out in our returns form.
9.6. Repairs and replacements: these terms apply to any repaired or replacement Goods we supply to you in the unlikely event that the original Goods are faulty or do not otherwise conform with these terms.
TITLE AND RISK
10.1. When you become responsible for the Goods: the Goods will be your responsibility from the time of delivery to the delivery address given by you.
10.2. When you own the Goods: ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive payment in full of all amounts due for the Goods, including delivery charges.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
11.1. Where to find the price for the Goods: the price of the Goods (which excludes VAT for orders within the EU) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order or the final price displayed at the end of a TV
Presentation. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Goods advised to you is correct however please see clause 11.4 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Goods you order.
11.2. Price for orders delivered outside of the UK: For orders delivered within the EU, these prices exclude UK VAT and you will be the importer of record. Included in the payment you make to us will be an amount equivalent to EU import vat and duty and this is paid over to the applicable authorities by Gemporia Craft Ltd. Gemporia Craft Ltd is registered with IOSS (registration number IM2500009063). For orders delivered outside the EU and USA, you may be required to pay import duties and/or taxes when your order reaches your country. These and any other charges for customs clearance are your sole responsibility.
11.3. We will pass on any changes in the rate of VAT: if the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the Goods, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods in full before the
change in rate of VAT takes effect.
11.4. What happens if we get a price wrong: it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Goods we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Good’s
correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Good’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your
instructions before we accept your order. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract, refund you any amounts you
have paid and require the return of any Goods provided to you.
11.5. When you must pay and how you must pay: Except for Split Payments (see clause 11.6), payment is taken once all the Goods have been picked and are ready to be packed for dispatch. At this point your credit card, debit card or PayPal account
will be charged and your order will be dispatched upon a successful payment receipt. Please note that orders placed on cards issued outside the EU may be subject to cross border transaction fees, and all credit or debit card orders may incur fees
if placed in a currency other than that for which the card is issued. These charges, and any similar ones with alternate payment methods, are outside of our control and must be paid by you directly to your card issuer.
11.6. How Split Payments work: On selected Goods we may offer you the choice to spread payment over a number of equal instalments at 30 day intervals ("Split Payments"). Split Payments are offered entirely at our discretion. When Split Payments are available you will be informed of the offer and the number of payments alongside the price information on screen or on the relevant web pages. Where an order contains items which are eligible for Split Payments alongside items which are ineligible, the full price of the ineligible items will be collected at the same time as the first instalment for the eligible items. Likewise, the delivery charge for the order will be collected at the same time as the first instalment. For Split Payments plans you must pay with your debit/credit card, and all instalment payments will be taken from your chosen debit/credit card over the applicable payment period. The card you chose will need an expiry which falls after the last instalment payment date. You are responsible for paying all instalments and you must inform us if you change your debit/credit card or if your debit/credit card expires or is no longer valid. If a payment instalment is declined for whatever reason then all outstanding amounts relating to your order will become due immediately, and we may withdraw the offer for Split Payments on your future orders. Monetary value discount codes cannot be applied to Split Pay items.
11.7. Expiry of non-refundable credit on your account: Non-refundable credit is credit that we have applied to your account in relation to any price promise, gesture of goodwill, promotion, competition win, reactivation campaign or other credit
referred by us as non-refundable credit. Please note that non-refundable credit is only valid for a period of 12 months from the date that the relevant non-refundable credit was applied to your account, and any unused non-refundable credit will
automatically be removed by us after this 12 month period.
OUR GOODWILL GUARANTEES
12.1. Our goodwill guarantees: Please note, these terms reflect the goodwill guarantees offered by us to our customers, which are more generous than your legal rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations in the ways set out below. These
goodwill guarantees do not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or misdescribed Goods (see clause 9).

TV Presentation Procedures & Policies
Any Presentation of products on and from the television media conducted by Gemporia Craft (registered in England and Wales CRN 12268335) whose trading address is Unit 2D, Eagle Road, Redditch, B989HF United Kingdom, and whose registered office is at Unit 2D, Eagle Road, Redditch, B989HF, Worcestershire, United Kingdom.
About TV Presentations
On our TV channels, websites and through our downloadable apps, we run a series of product presentations conducted through live video feeds (each, a "TV Presentation"). TV Presentations may differ in format, but will generally feature a price and a quantity of available items that will decline during the period of the TV Presentation.
From TV Presentation to TV Presentation, the number of featured items that are available to be purchased at the final price will vary. At some point during the TV Presentation, we may show on the screen the number of items we have remaining in that particular TV Presentation (the "quantity remaining"). This is an indication of how many more of that item we intend to sell in that TV Presentation. It is not necessarily representative of the total number of items we may have in stock in our vault (the "vault quantity") at any given time (that is, we may have more of the item available than the number indicated as "Left In Auction"). There is no obligation on us to sell the entire TV Presentation quantity remaining; likewise we may sell more than this quantity where there is greater demand than we anticipated and there is sufficient un-allocated stock in our vault.
Once a particular TV Presentation begins, the price for the featured item may start to fall and may periodically be reduced until we, in our absolute discretion, decide to move on to the next item. We can move on to the next item before all, or any, of the TV Presentation quantity has been allocated to customers. When we move on to the next item, the previous TV Presentation may remain open until it is terminated (see below) and customers can continue to purchase the item at the final price if sufficient quantity is still available to be allocated.
Placing Your Order
If you see an item that you would like to purchase, you may place your order when it reaches the price you are willing to pay. You can do this through this website, through any of our apps or by calling our Help Team on 0800 001 4433. By placing your order you agree that you are able to and intend to purchase the item(s) you order at the final price (which may or may not be lower than the price at the time of your order). Please note that no order is binding until accepted by us.
Allocation of items
Following your order, an item will be allocated to you either when you have checked out your order, or when you have successfully placed an order with our Help Team for the item. Once an item has been allocated to you, you will have reserved the item for purchase and you will have agreed to purchase the item - subject to our cancellation and return policies in our terms and conditions. If you choose not to check the item out immediately, then you may lose it to other purchasers if we have more demand for the item than the vault quantity. As long as we have sufficient quantity, the item will remain in your basket at the final price for up to 12 months after which it will no longer be available for sale.
Reducing the TV Presentation quantity
While a TV Presentation is being displayed, our producer will use reasonable efforts to ensure that the remaining TV Presentation quantity reflects how many more items exist for viewers to order for one of the remaining quantity. In doing so, they will use all the information that they have on hand including the current and historical order activity on our website and telephone lines. For various reasons, the TV Presentation quantity remaining presented on screen will not always be the exact quantity actually remaining and should be treated as an indication, not a firm number. For example, callers may hang up before speaking to our Help Team, or may purchase multiple quantities. Our producers are trained to use their experience to make the on-screen quantity as accurate as reasonably possible, but by participating in TV Presentations you accept that the numbers on screen are estimations in the producer’s discretion and may not reflect the exact numbers available for order.
Termination of TV Presentation
TV Presentations usually terminate at the earlier of one hour from when the graphics are removed from the screen at the end of the main presentation of the item, or when we have allocated the vault quantity to customers. We may, at our discretion, display an item on screen again after the main presentation if there is still some of the Presentation quantity available; this does not extend the length of the TV Presentation and it will still terminate in accordance with this paragraph. TV Presentations that have not yet terminated may also be displayed on our website. Where we are running showcase TV Presentations that start simultaneously, these will also terminate simultaneously at the end of the showcase. Starting a showcase will also terminate any other TV Presentations that were still running at that time.
The final price is the last (and lowest) price that we display prior to removing the on-screen graphics in the main presentation of a TV Presentation. Regardless of the price at the time of your order, you will pay the same final low price (plus any applicable taxes and shipping charges) as all the other purchasers if you successfully have an item allocated to you.
Where a telephone call or website order is received after a TV Presentation has terminated, the customer will not be entitled to purchase the item at the final price. However, if any allocated items are cancelled by customers, we reserve the right to (but do not obligate ourselves to) contact customers who were turned away after the termination of the TV Presentation in order to offer them the product at the final selling price.
Good Faith Participation in Presentations
The success of the TV Presentations depends on the good faith of the participants. We try to strike a reasonable balance between allowing cancellations and returns and maintaining the integrity of the TV Presentations. While we do have a “no questions asked” 30-day return policy all participants in TV Presentations must place their bids in good faith with the intention of purchasing the item at the final price, which may be the price at the time you ordered or at a lower price if the price continues to fall before the TV Presentation ends.
