Vinny & Charles FAQ's
So, firstly - and most importantly - we want you to be absolutely in love and 100% happy with your jewellery. This is so important to us. Please let us know if you have any questions before buying, we usually respond within 24 hours.
We offer a lifetime warranty against any manufacturing defects.
The warranty includes:
Fixing of any manufacturing defects
Routine inspection, cleaning and polishing
Any necessary repair work and stone replacement will be quoted accordingly.
The warranty does not cover:
Normal wear and tear, accidental or intentional damage, or theft.
Lost centre stones.
We highly recommend that you include your jewellery in your personal household contents insurance.
Warranty is voided if the piece is worked on by any other jeweller.
Any shipping and related customs charges will need to be covered by the customer. This includes shipping charges in getting the ring to and from us.
We offer 1 free ring resizing within 90 days on all orders. Customers will be responsible for all shipping and import related charges in getting the ring/s back to our workshop for resizing. Ring resizing is not possible on certain designs, for example on eternity designs. In these cases a resizing fee may apply. Please allow up to 3 weeks for ring resizing once received in our workshop.
Please note we are not responsible for any additional costs due to incorrect ring size being provided.
White gold - all of our white gold pieces are rhodium plated as per industry standard practice. This gives the metal a "whiter" and more 'silvery' lustre as white gold is comparatively more yellow in appearance in its natural state. If you would prefer to have the white gold piece without rhodium plating, please get in touch with us.
A tracking number will be provided on all orders when they ship out.
Delivery times are estimates only. Insurance is not included. If you would like the piece to be insured, please let us know.
