We will normally verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures. If we accept and process your order where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by the average customer as an error, we may end the Contract, refund you any sums you have paid and require return of any products provided to you.
  6. Product prices and delivery charges are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation.

Prices are updated monthly.

Products and Services

  1. Blacklock Jewellery offers stock fine jewellery products ('Products'), these are defined as unique designs by Blacklock Jewellery listed on Blacklock Jewellery.com under the following categories 'Fine Jewellery' and 'Collections'.
  2. Blacklock Jewellery also offers a Bespoke commission service ('Bespoke Orders') where Clients work exclusively with our design team to create bespoke fine jewellery items. The 'Unique Jewels' category also sits under 'Bespoke Orders'.

Stock

  1. We are predominantly "make-to-order" jewellers which ensures that the quality of our jewellery remains extremely high and underlines our commitment to limited production runs.
  2. We do maintain a controlled amount of stock Products, but whilst we do our very best to ensure that there is an accurate inventory for your shopping ease, items do sell out. This usually happens when two or more customers order the same item at the same time, before our website has been updated. If this happens you will be notified in a timely manner (usually the same or next day), and we will offer you suggestions on fulfilment of your order or refund any monies paid by you.
  3. Products held in stock will be delivered within 3 - 5 working days.
  4. Products out of stock will be delivered within 10-15 working days.

Bespoke Orders

  1. General
    1. The creation of Bespoke Orders will be undertaken in full confidence and discretion of the person ordering the commission. From time to time we may request that the design is recreated for further sales and marketing purposes – this will be undertaken in full knowledge of the person that has placed the order.
    2. The design and all rights associated with it are still owned by Blacklock Jewellery, however files of all the final designs associated with the piece created are passed over to the individual that has commissioned the design.
    3. We do not allow the individual who has commissioned the piece to market / sell the product as their own.
    4. An estimate of the cost of undertaking the Bespoke Order will be given at any stage that the client requests. The estimate is an approximation of the cost of the job being undertaken and is based upon similar previous jobs and the cost of the precious metals, diamonds and gemstones being used.
    5. We will not be held to this price as the confirmed finished price. A quotation will be issued when the finished design is approved. We will however hold this price for seven days from the date that the quotation is issued due to the fluctuation of prices of precious metals, diamonds and gemstones.
    6. Bespoke Orders require a 50% deposit on approval of the design and confirmation of the order. The remaining 50% is paid upon delivery.
    7. All Bespoke Orders are payable by BACS transfer only details of which will be confirmed at point of Order confirmation.
    8. Production and delivery timescale of Bespoke Orders are dependent on complexity of the piece commissioned. We estimate an average time frame of 5-7 weeks from start to delivered item received.
  2. Supply to us of loose stone(s)/jewellery for Bespoke Orders
    1. When we are supplied loose stone(s) or jewellery by Clients for the purposes of Bespoke Orders in certain instances we will ask for 'proof of origin'. This protects you and us against unethical and criminal practices. We reserve the right to refuse to proceed with the Bespoke Order if the requisite paperwork is not provided.
  3. Examination and Assessment
    1. In the event that you wish to commission a Bespoke Order, from a loose diamond or gemstone, we will need to examine the gemstone to determine the correct way to proceed.
    2. We will submit a quotation to you when the Jewellery has been examined by a working jeweller, or the gemstone assessed by Ralph Blacklock, gemmologist.
    3. The examination process may take up to 2 weeks for the quotation to be confirmed. If gemstones need to be tested there may be an additional cost. You will be informed of this cost at the earliest convenience.
    4. Blacklock Jewellery reserves the right to refuse to work with loose diamonds or gemstones (as supplied by the Client)
  4. Estimates, Quotations and Order Processing
    1. Estimates are approximate calculations for the cost of undertaking an order. At no stage is Blacklock Jewellery liable to uphold an estimate.
    2. A quotation from Blacklock Jewellery formalises a previous estimate which confirms the current market price for your order. Once a quotation is received you are required to confirm in writing via email or letter that the quotation is approved before production can proceed. We will only commence work once we have received this as written confirmation.
    3. Quotations that are provided by us are valid for one month only; after this time, we will re-quote since the price of jewellery-based commodities (such as diamonds, gemstones and precious metals) is liable to change.
    4. We determine in our sole discretion whether to proceed or not with any Bespoke Order.
    5. Should the order not be accepted by us, Blacklock Jewellery will return the loose gemstones, diamonds or jewellery by exactly the same method of delivery receipt free of charge.
