1. Design and Copyright

All designs on Veale Fine Jewellery’s website and emailed from us are the company’s intellectual property. These designs must not be copied or used in any way outside of direct liaison with Veale Fine Jewellery. To do so would be an infringement of UK Patent Law and we would be entitled to take legal action.

2. By paying a deposit you are agreeing that you have been made aware of and adhere to the following information:

2.1 Payment

  • Veale Fine Jewellery will not start to manufacture any item until a deposit invoice of 50% of the sale price has been paid.
  • On receipt of the deposit payment, Veale Jewellery will start to manufacture the final design that was agreed between the customer and James Veale (itemised on the invoice).
  • The deposit payment is non-refundable.
  • The final ‘balance’ payment invoice will be sent on completion of the item and this is due to be paid within 7 days of the invoice being sent.
  • You will be liable to pay the final payment in full before any jewellery is released.

2.2 Time of manufacturing

  • Made to order pieces typically take 6 weeks to manufacture from the point of the deposit being paid. Veale Fine Jewellery will always strive to meet all deadlines; but we reserve the right to take up to 8 weeks to manufacture any piece of jewellery.

2.3 Ring sizing

  • Veale Fine Jewellery will provide access to a UK industry standard ring sizer and advise all customers on fit and/or how they can obtain a ring size estimate if the ring is a gift. However, the final decision on ring size is the choice of the customer and once it has been agreed and the deposit paid, the ring will be made to this given ring size.
