Delivery 

Solitaire Jewellery is only available to ship jewellery to clients in places where Fed-Ex, UPS and Malca-Amit offer a normal delivery service. 

You will get the estimated time scale as well as the delivery charges when you have placed an order. Solitaire Jewellery has a history of making every effort to meet the expected timescale when delivering goods to its customers. However, unforeseen factors may occasionally lead to delay or even delivery failure. If so, Solitaire Jewellery takes no liability. You can collect your orders by hand, directly from Solitaire Jewellery after representing an applicable proof of identities like an Identity Card/Passport.

Information, pictures, descriptions, videos on the website of Solitaire Jewellery or the information given by email, by chat communication - and/or by phone are as precise as possible. Solitaire Jewellery can not be held liable for mistakes, clerical errors, faulty mentions or lack of information.
When the client faces unclear information he can always contact a representative of Solitaire Jewellery.

Solitaire Jewellery passes any risk of loss or damage during the product(s) delivery to the buyer.

Solitaire Jewellery exerts herself to give a realistic and detailed picture of her products on her website. It could happen that a product is enlarged or reduced on the picture in order to allow the client to have a detailed view of the product. The client must be aware that each screen is calibrated in a different way so that image and colours can be slightly different from reality. The delivery agents will deliver the goods to the address provided by you when placing the order. Solitaire Jewellery assumes that a certain order is delivered when the agent delivers it to the delivery address, or, in case the agent fails to deliver the goods to your address and leave it at another address, you collect it from there. The delivery agent will notify you to collect your order within the next five working days. If you fail to collect the order within this period, Solitaire Jewellery will consider the delivery process as successful, and you can only do any return as per the return policy discussed later. You will sign a delivery note on collecting the order. 

Acceptance/Payment for an online order

Once Solitaire Jewellery receives your order, it checks your debit/credit card as well as whether the stock is available. Goods are always subject to availability. Solitaire Jewellery can then deduct the payment from the card if the goods needed are available. Solitaire Jewellery will inform you in case they are unable to supply the products as soon as it can. In such a case, a full refund will be given to you, if you have already paid for the goods.

The prices of products as displayed on Solitaire Jewellery's website are exclusive of the VAT as well as delivery charges, except when expressly stated. 21% VAT (according to the Belgian Law) will be added to European Union (EU)-Customers (Billing and/or Shipping Addresses are within EU-Countries). Customers outside of the EU (Billing and Shipping Addresses are non EU-Countries) are free of the VAT and therefore will not be charged 21% VAT. However, customers outside of the EU (Billing and Shipping Addresses are non EU-Countries) must expect that import duties, taxes and/or even possible luxury taxes outside the EU can be levied by the customer in the respective country. Therefore Solitaire Jewellery assumes no responsibility or any other risks with regard to the goods, money and return, in case of non-payment of your duties and taxes.
