3a. Deposits paid
Please note that because of exemption 3. - Deposits paid for jewellery commissioned or personalised are non refundable.
( If in unforseen circumstances you are forced to cancel a commission or personalised piece of jewellery through no fault of your own, although legally not obliged, as a good will gesture we will endeavour to return a deposit less our expenses of time and materials if that is reasonable, and at our own discretion, in consultation with each individual client on a case by case basis)
