Terms and Conditions of Sale

[View: TERMS & CONDITIONS – USE OF SITE]

The work

All items are made from acrylic (PMMA) or other plastics and are formed by a variety of methods.  Each piece has been decorated and assembled personally by Gail Klevan using various metallic foils and coloured compounds.  They are backed with durable lacquers and varnishes and some items are signed.

Pierced-ear fittings are made from surgical steel which contains between 6-13 % nickel but has a release rate of less than 0.5 µg/cm²/week of nickel and therefore comply with EU Nickel Directive 76/769/EEC and 94/27/EEC. Hooks for drop earrings are also made from surgical steel and clip-on findings are made from gold plated brass or nickel-silver plated brass which also comply with EU Nickel Directives.  For those who are hyper-sensitive to nickel, sterling silver fittings can be supplied at extra cost.   The metal tubes used in the chokers, neck and wrist cuffs are made of copper plated with either gold or nickel-free “white-bronze”.  White bronze alloys contain tin, copper and zinc.

Delivery

Our aim is to send you your order quickly and efficiently. Most pieces are normally available for despatch within 2 to 5 working days however we cannot guarantee any particular delivery date and, on occasions, delivery times may extend well beyond 5 days.

Please also remember that some of the pieces will have to be individually made, just for you, and therefore delivery for such items may take between 3 to 6 weeks or longer.

If you need super-fast delivery for a special occasion, we can often arrange next day delivery on some items, and even those stated on a longer despatch time can sometimes be arranged for a faster delivery. Just email us at office -at- gailklevan.com.  Alternatively you could consider a Gail Klevan gift voucher.

Cancellation

If you wish to cancel your order, you must notify us by email to office -at-gailklevan.com before we have dispatched the goods to you.  Once goods have already been dispatched to you the order cannot be cancelled.

Commissions and orders for bespoke work cannot be cancelled once payment has been made unless specifically by written agreement with Gail Klevan.  This includes pieces specially made with customer specified colours or where a bangle, bracelet, ring or other item has been specially shaped or sized for you. Once the work has been started, it is unlikely that a cancellation will be possible. However, if you email us as soon as possible after placing the order at office -at- gailklevan.com, we shall check to see if a cancellation is possible

Items lost or damaged in transit

If orders do not arrive within a reasonable time please notify us by email and we will investigate.  In the event that the item is lost we will invoke the insurance provided in the delivery service for the appropriate amount (subject to the maximum insurance cover provided by the service) and refund claim proceeds to you on receipt from the postal service.

Your purchase must be unworn and received back by us in perfect condition in the original packaging. We strongly recommend that you return your purchase fully insured through the Royal Mail Special Delivery service or international equivalent as we cannot accept any responsibility for any returned items that are lost or stolen in transit.
