For all returns, except where the item is faulty or dispatched in error by us, you will be required to arrange and pay for the return of the products to us, we do not offer refund on postage. Where the item is faulty or dispatched in error, Lucinda King will only reimburse returns made within the UK (excluding international) after the item(s) has been assessed by us.
Returns, exchanges and repairs
You have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of the goods when they are in your possession. Our returns policy does not apply to defective or damaged items or items sent to you in error, which are dealt with separately in the "Defective and damaged items" section below.
We cannot exchange or refund earrings (for hygiene reasons), engraved or soldered items (unless they are defective or faulty), or vouchers (whether physical vouchers or e-vouchers). Also, please note that earrings can only be purchased as a complete pair (two earrings), and we are unable to supply a half pair for purchase.
This returns policy only applies to items purchased via Lucinda King directly (website, telephone or mail-order). Items purchased via an approved Lucinda King retailer must be returned to its original place of purchase.
Promotions: If you wish to return your original item(s) you must also return the free item. Any item(s) that is returned without a promotional item(s) that was included with the original transaction will have the value of the promotional item deducted from the refund amount. If you purchased a discounted item, you will be refunded the price paid on purchase, and not the RRP.
When returning items you must obtain proof of posting as we cannot accept responsibility for parcels lost in transit. Furthermore, returns must be made via a postal service which carries a level of insurance cover that is adequate to cover the full cost of replacement. Please contact your local post office to enquire what services and insurance levels are available, as these do change from time to time.
A refund of the price of the goods will be issued once all the criteria above is met. The original method of payment for the purchase will be credited. If there are any problems with your refund, a member of our customer care team will contact you. Please note that any funds due should appear on your bank statement within 5-10 working days (Please note that refund times are dictated by the card issuers and are outside our control).
For all returns, except where the item is faulty or dispatched in error by us, you will be required to arrange and pay for the return of the products to us. Where the item is faulty or dispatched in error, Lucinda King will only reimburse returns made within the UK (excluding international) after the item(s) has been assessed by us.
For more information regarding making a return, please see our returns page.
DELIVERY & CUSTOMS
Please see our delivery page for information on timings and costs of delivery. We will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the goods or services within the times indicated. However, where delivery times and dates are given, they are for general guidance only and we will not be held liable for late delivery of goods caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. Fedex deliver any time between 9.00am-6.00pm on the following working day (Monday to Friday). Unfortunately, it is not possible to specify a delivery time. All guarantees provided are by our courier services, and not Lucinda King. Orders placed before 4pm on a Friday will be delivered on a Monday (excluding bank holidays).
We shall attempt to deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery, or if none, to the credit card address you supply. You are responsible for making arrangements to receive the goods and if the goods are held at the post office or other delivery company's depot, because no one was available when the goods were delivered, then it is your responsibility to swiftly collect the goods. It is important that the addresses supplied by you to us are accurate.
Please note that our next-day delivery service is provided by FedEx who use a track-and-trace method to confirm receipt of delivery. Unlike Royal Mail, FedEx does not show the signed signature on proof of delivery, only the name of the person who has accepted the parcel and signed for it.
We maintain responsibility to obtain any signature as a proof of delivery from the delivery address provided by the customer at time of transaction. Any signature obtained on delivery will be accepted as valid. We do not take responsibility for releasing goods to an unauthorised signatory at the delivery address. If for any reason, a customer’s goods are misappropriated, we will obtain a proof of delivery from Royal Mail or FedEx in order to assist the customer to resolve the issue.
It is the sole responsibility of the recipient of the parcel to inform us of any discrepancies relating to the contents, i.e. missing or incorrect item received, within 7 days of receiving the parcel. We will not be held liable for any discrepancies informed after this time.
Please note that we are currently not able to deliver to P.O. boxes or military bases.
For customers in the United Kingdom and European Union customers (not registered for VAT), the prices you pay includes any duties or taxes applicable to the UK and the remainder of the European Union. If duty rates change, we reserve the right to charge extra or not to supply. It may not be possible for us to deliver to some countries, if an order is received with a delivery address outside the territories stated, you will be contacted by our customer service centre.
For customers outside the UK and European Union the RRP price is exempt of VAT, but is a fully landed cost (to include RRP), we say this as it includes administrative charges to handle an overseas item. It is the customers responsibility to provide the correct information, with regards to home country, during the ordering process so that the applicable price can be charged. Please bear in mind that to ship a package overseas involves a courier service (in our case, FedEx International) as well as insurance and administration costs which are reflected in the RRP price to overseas customers. All orders from outside of the UK will occur an additional postage cost, please see the International Delivery section on the Dispatch page.
All orders to non-UK countries are charged £25 and are posted by FedEx International. Please note that it is the customer’s responsibility to accept delivery of Fedex International parcel by means of signature with the courier, and paying all duty and other taxes arising in the country that products have been shipped to. These charges can range from 5-25% depending on the country. If a Fedex parcel is refused by customer, Lucinda King will not accept responsibility and the parcel will not be returned to us and will remain undelivered and no refund will be issued to customer. If returning a parcel to us from outside of the UK, it is the responsibility of the customer to pay own shipping costs and any duties and taxes that may arise.
International orders and payment via BACS
Due to problems with authorisation on credit cards for customers outside the UK, we require such customers to pay by BACS or PayPal. However, as a result of the bank charges incurred for BACS payments, each transaction from an international customer will incur a £15 charge on top of the order value. If you wish to avoid this fee, please place your order via PayPal.
Delivery of goods outside Europe
Goods outside Europe are delivered at standard UK RRP on a Free On Board basis. Customers are responsible for all further costs which may result after the goods arrive in the destination country. For supplies of goods in Europe, VAT is charged at standard rate.
Delivery of perfumes and fragrances outside the UK
Unfortunately, we are unable to supply any liquid form product - i.e., perfumes and fragrances - to any overseas address. We can only supply to addresses within the UK.
Following your online order you will receive an order confirmation via email. It is the sole responsibility of the recipient to inform Lucinda King of any discrepancies relating to the contents, i.e. missing or incorrect items ordered, within 7 days. Lucinda King will not be held liable for any discrepancies informed after this time.
Redeeming your free £10 online voucher
Should you receive a free £10 online voucher code in your order confirmation email, you must spend £99 or more in order to redeem it. If your order amount comes to less than £99 your voucher code will not work. Please note that it cannot be used in conjunction with loyalty points or any other voucher.

All of our jewellery is hand polished and finished. Sterling silver is used as standard except where specified. All diamonds and precious stones are hand selected for purity and colour. Diamond weights quoted are the average carat weight per piece or pair in the case of earrings or set, unless stated otherwise and this weight can fluctuate up and down slightly.
All of our enamel items are epoxy resin enamel, often referred to as cold enamel.
The beauty of our jewellery is that each piece is designed to the finest detail to really capture the essence of the story behind it; as a result the wear ability of certain pieces is different. For the more delicate jewellery the design can be more creative and stylish as they are designed most for occasional wear, however for the hard wearing pieces the design is slightly simpler for the purpose of wearing on a daily basis. Therefore more care must be taken when wearing one of our more delicate pieces.
It is also important to remember that harsh chemicals will affect all jewellery if regularly exposed to it.
As the gemstones that Lucinda King uses are all natural and not synthetic there may be slight variations in appearance. This excludes certificated gemstones.
Measurements and Weights
All measurements and weights are approximate and have been rounded up or down to the nearest quarter-inch, centimetre, millimetre or gram. While every effort has been made to ensure these measurements and weights are correct, Lucinda King accepts no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to stated sizes or weights in or brochure or on our websites, www.lucindaking.com. Lucinda King allows a 10% tolerance rate between items. If you are in any doubt about any of the sizes or weights, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit your Lucinda King stockist.
Contract for Sale or Services
The description of the goods, services, price, currency, VAT and delivery costs are set out on the order page. The advertising of products and services on this site is an 'invitation to treat'. That means your order is an offer and no contract of sale is formed between you and Lucinda King until you receive the confirmation of order email. Orders shall be accepted at our sole discretion but are normally accepted once credit card authorisation has been confirmed, the order reflects current pricing and stock levels. When you place an order direct with Lucinda King, payment is taken immediately at the point of order, whether the item(s) is in stock or not. Once we accept your order, you shall pay the price for the goods or services plus VAT and delivery and other costs specified on the order page and we shall charge your account for payment. Please keep your "confirmation of order" e-mail for your records.
In exceptional circumstances, if we are not able to fulfil an order we have accepted, your credit card will be re-credited with the original price and we will notify you by email. In no circumstances will we be liable to you for any additional amounts.
These terms and conditions cannot be varied except by changes made by Lucinda King on the site, which we may make from time to time. Proposed changes to the terms and conditions will be notified to you by e-mail or flagged for your attention when you log onto the site for a new session. Your continued use of the site after such notification shall be taken as your full acceptance of such changes. You will only own the goods you purchase once they have been successfully delivered and when we have received cleared payment for them in full. Until that time we will retain title to the goods.
CANCELLATIONS & EXCHANGES
If you realise you have made a mistake and want to cancel your order, please contact us as soon as possible. Since we ship quickly, it may not be possible to stop your order so please follow the instructions in our 'Returns' policy section, in those instances. Please follow these instructions for exchanges as well. If your order needs to arrive to you hastily, it will be faster to re-order a product rather than send it back for an exchange, so please follow the above instructions while you order the product you would like instead. We realize this means two transactions on your credit card but feel it is faster for you to get the product you would like.
If we are providing repair or engraving services we cannot cancel your order if we have already started the work.

Earrings can only be purchased as a complete pair (two earrings), and we are unable to supply a half pair for purchase.
