If returned within 14-28 days, the restocking fee will increase to $300. We do not accept exchanges outside of these specified timeframes. A store credit will be issued to the email address provided and can be used towards a LOUISE JEAN purchase of equal or more value. Customers will be responsible for any return shipping fees. We recommend shipping return orders via a trusted and trackable service as LOUISE JEAN is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or stolen parcels.

We reserve the right to reject an exchange if we believe that it is not in new condition.
All LOUISE JEAN Fine Jewellery pieces are non-refundable and cannot be refunded if you simply change your mind or for incorrect purchases.

Credits are issued once the item has been received, and are based on an assessment of the piece by our jewellers. They are issued in the form of physical gift cards (redeemable in-store only) or e-gift cards (redeemable online only). Credits are valid for a period of three years from the date of issue.

CANCELLATION & REFUNDS:
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:
All goods are shipped by premium, traceable delivery services. Louise Jean cannot guarantee items in transit or be held responsible for issues that may arise while goods are in transit after they have left our facilities and are out of our care. In the rare event that goods in transit arrive damaged or lost, Louise Jean will endeavour to resolve any issues that arise.
All goods in trust and stones supplied to Louise Jean Jewellery will be handled with the utmost care by our expert jewellers.

MATERIALS & CARE:
RESIZING AND REMANUFACTURING:
Complimentary resizes are subject to the ring being within our resizing parameters, if the ring is outside of these parameters it may be necessary to re-manufacture the piece in order to maintain the structural integrity of the piece. Resizing parameters can differentiate subject to the setting style and initial size of the ring. Louise Jean Jewellery will not resize one of our rings if we feel as if it will compromise the structural integrity of the ring itself.
For all engagement rings dispatched within 6-months that require re-manufacture, a discounted re-manufacture rate will apply. After the initial 6-months has come to pass from the date of dispatch, our standard repairs and resizing fee structure will be in effect.
The costs related to undergo repairs, resizes and re-manufactures differentiate subject to the metal type and setting style. Resized pieces that require rhodium plating will be charged at cost.
