JEMS Jewellery is hand made in England from sterling silver and JEMS aim to ensure the photographs of products are as realistic as possible. However, because the jewellery is handmade some items may differ slightly to those shown. JEMS hope that you are delighted with your item, but if you are not, are happy to exchange it for you.

Sorry there is a no refunds on bespoke pieces or commissions.

Please contact JEMS within 7 days of receipt to arrange the exchange of the item or items. They must be sent back in their original, unworn condition.

JEMS will then arrange the exchange. For hygiene reasons, earrings cannot be returned unless they are faulty. When ordering rings, it is the customer's responsibility to ensure that they have ordered the correct size. Rings can be re-sized or exchanged but will be subject to a charge. If you should receive a faulty or damaged item, please notify within seven days of receipt. To arrange an exchange, or if the item you received is faulty or not what you originally ordered, please email and quote your name and address, details of the product, the reason for return and whether you require a refund or replacement.

JEMS will then advise on how to proceed with the return. The item is your responsibility until it reaches JEMS. For your own protection, Special Delivery or an insured postal service and insure them at the appropriate value is recommended. JEMS cannot be held responsible for returns that are lost in transit. If you are returning an item to us for a refund or an exchange, the cost of returning the item to JEMS is your responsibility. Your original postage costs will not be refunded unless the item you received was sent in error or deem as faulty. (Providing we are notified of faults within 7 days of receipt).

All products to be returned must be carefully repackaged in their original packing and be in an unworn condition. JEMS will not exchange goods that have been worn, do not have their original packaging or show obvious signs of wear or abuse. In this instance, the goods will be returned to the buyer.
