Terms & Conditions
These terms and conditions govern your use of the website www.willowandstag.com and the purchase of goods and services from Willow and Stag, including our stands, directly at our events, or direct sales from our official seller (not including retail sellers). Here, you will also find information on orders and returns, privacy and security on the pages of the website. If you have any questions, please Contact Us using our online contact form. This is the quickest way for us to respond to you. Where possible this will be within 48 hours (not including weekends or bank holidays), but may be longer at peak sales times such as Christmas. In these terms and conditions, “we”, “us”, “our” and Willow and Stag all refer to Willow and Stag.
You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase goods from the website. If you are under 18, you may use the site only under guidance of a parent or guardian.
14-day money-back returns policy
We offer all of our direct customers purchasing through the website a 14-day money-back returns policy. So if for any reason you are unsatisfied with your Willow and Stag jewellery, you may return it unworn and in its original presentation packaging, to us within 14 days of receipt for a full refund of the cost of goods. 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 an item is faulty or dispatched in error, Willow and Stag will only reimburse returns within the UK (excluding international returns) after the item(s) has been returned to and assessed by our workshop.
Returns and Repairs
You are legally obliged to take reasonable care of the goods received from us. Our returns policy does not apply to damaged items or items sent to you in error. These are dealt with separately on our “Delivery & Returns” Page.
We do not exchange or refund earrings (for hygiene reasons), custom hand stamped or personalised items (unless they are defective pre-delivery), or vouchers (including physical vouchers or e-vouchers).
Items purchased through an approved Willow and Stag retailer must be returned to its original place of purchase and are not included in this Terms and Conditions policy.
Please note that the customer must return any items directly to us and we must be in receipt of those items and have assessed them before a refund will be given.
Promotions: If you wish to return your original item(s) you must also return any extra discounted or free item(s) included in the promotion. Any item(s) returned without a promotional item(s) 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 actual price you paid on purchase, and not the full retail price either listed in the shop or relayed in person at an event.
When returning items you must get and retain proof of postage, as we do not accept responsibility for packages lost in transit back to us. Returns must also be made using a postal service carrying the correct level of insurance to cover the full cost of replacement of an item or items being returned. Please contact your local post office to find out about what current services and insurance levels you require for this, as these services can change and vary.
Any refunds due will be issued through your original payment method once all the criteria above has been met. If there are any problems with your refund, a member of our Customer Care team will contact you. Any funds due should usually appear on your bank statement within 5-10 working days after the refund is issued. (However please note that refund times are down to the card issuers and are outside our control. So any queries should be directed to your card issuer directly).
Where an item is faulty or dispatched in error, Willow and Stag will only reimburse returns made within the UK (excluding international) after the returned goods are received and assessed by our workshop.
For more information on making a return to us, please see our “Delivery and Returns” page.
To contact us for any reason, please access our Contact Us page, where we have an online contact form for your convenience. This is the quickest way for Willow and Stag to respond to you. Where possible we will get back to you within 48 hours (not including weekends or public holidays), but this may be longer at peak sales times, including Christmas.
To securely receive your payments over the Internet we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which is the standard Internet practice to protect personal details. We use Paypal as our third party payment gateway unless otherwise specified.
Please do not send orders via email. Orders received this way will not be accepted as we cannot guarantee your security with this method.
We will take all reasonable care to keep your order safe and secure, but we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third party obtains unauthorised access to any data (including credit and account details) you provide when accessing or ordering from the site. If you’re still worried about security over the Internet, please Contact Us.
Bespoke items cannot be returned for refund or alteration unless deemed faulty after inspection by our workshop. All rings, bespoke or otherwise that are returned in this way will be corrected to the same standard dimensions, and any detail, pattern or sizing will be unchanged from that which was accepted on the original order.
Delivery and Customs
Please see our “Delivery and Returns” page for information on production times (also referred to as “making times”), estimated delivery times and delivery fees. We will always aim to deliver goods or services to you 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 postal services, or other circumstances beyond our reasonable control. All guarantees provided are by our courier services, and not Willow and Stag directly.
Your goods will be sent to the address you supply us with at the time of ordering, or on your account with us. Please ensure these are up-to-date and correct. If no address is given then we will use the Paypal address you provide.
You are responsible for making arrangements to receive the goods, and collecting them if they are held at the post office or other delivery company’s depot, due to no one being available when they were delivered.
Our courier or postal delivery service may obtain any signature as a proof of delivery to the address provided by the customer at time of transaction. Any signatures from the address will be accepted as valid. We do not take responsibility for goods collected by unauthorised signatories at the given delivery address.
If for any reason, a customer’s goods are misappropriated, we will obtain a proof of delivery from Royal Mail in order to assist the customer to resolve the issue.
It is the sole responsibility of the parcel’s recipient to let us know of discrepancies relating to the contents (i.e. incorrect or missing item(s) received) within 7 days of receiving the parcel. We will not be held liable for any discrepancies brought to our attention after this time.
Please note that we are not able to currently deliver to P.O. boxes or military bases.
For customers in the United Kingdom (not registered for VAT), the prices you pay includes any duties or taxes applicable to the UK. If these duty rates change, we reserve the right to charge extra or to 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. If this is the case you will be contacted by our Customer Care representative via email. Please ensure your email address is corect at time of ordering.
Please bear in mind that to ship a package overseas involves a courier service as well as insurance and administration costs. These are reflected in the price to overseas customers. All orders from outside the UK will incur an additional postage cost. Please refer to the International Delivery section on our Delivery and Returns Page for further information.
Parcels returned to us from outside the UK, are the responsibility of the customer to pay associated shipping costs, customs duties, taxes or other charges that may be relevant.
Delivery of Products Outside the UK
Goods are delivered at the standard UK International rates set by our postal service providers. Customers are responsible for all further related costs which may incur after the products arrive in their destination country.
After making your online order through Willow and Stag website, you will receive an order confirmation email from us. It is the customer’s sole responsibility to inform Willow and Stag of any discrepancies in the content (i.e. incorrect or missing items) of this email prior to the items being sent out, and to avoid incurring any unnecessary postage charges. Willow and Stag will not be held liable for any discrepancies informed after the parcel is released to our postal service provider.
Hand stamping and Repair Service
We offer hand stamping on specific products. The additional time needed for these services, if the item is in stock, is an additional 7 working days (excluding postal delivery time). This will be longer during peak periods, including national holidays.
For more information, please Contact Us.
Willow and Stag products are made to a high quality. However, should you require it, we offer a repairs service for items bought from us. This service does incur a charge.
Please note, we only offer our personalised hand stamping service for appropriate items purchased directly from us.
All our jewellery is hand polished and finished at our workshop. All diamonds and precious stones are hand selected for colour and purity. Diamond weights quoted are the average carat weight per piece or pair in the case of earrings or set, unless stated otherwise. This weight can fluctuate up and down slightly.
Willow and Stag is committed to offering high-quality conflict free diamonds and gemstones from our trusted suppliers. Please refer to our Sustainability page for further information.
All rings, bespoke or otherwise maintain the same dimensions regardless of finger size, and the pattern or any other detail will be unchanged. The only difference will be the inner diameter of the ring.
The beauty of our jewellery is that each piece is designed to capture the beauty and uniqueness of the materials used in it, from fine gemstones to the gold and silver metals. Therefore the wear ability of certain pieces can vary. For example a wedding ring is designed to be worn every day and can cope with hard wear and tear, whilst a more delicate band subjected to the same wear as a wedding ring will show signs of wear faster.
It is also important to remember that chemicals will affect all jewellery if regularly exposed to it.
The gemstones that Willow and Stag uses are all natural unless stated otherwise and as such there may be slight variations in appearance.
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, Willow and Stag accepts no responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to stated sizes or weights in a brochure or on our website, www.willowandstag.com. If you are in any doubt about any of the sizes or weights, please Contact Us.
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 Willow and Stag 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 Willow and Stag, 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 (where applicable) 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 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 may be updated from time to time by Willow and Stag. 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 and Exchanges
If you realise you have made a mistake and want to cancel your order, please contact us as soon as possible. If your item has already been sent out then 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 hand stamping services we cannot cancel your order if we have already started the work.
If you should receive an item you have ordered that is defective, damaged or not what you ordered, please contact us as soon as possible. Our customer care team will help you resolve any issues as quickly as possible by delivering another item, replacing your order or refunding the amount paid.
