7.1 The general period for giving notice of lack of conformity is 2 years. However, the customer is obliged to examine the goods thoroughly as soon as he or she receives the goods. In the case the customer discovers faults in the delivered goods, the customer, in order not to lose the right to make those faults relevant at a later time, is obliged to notify of any faults without pause to DALBY DIAMONDS. It is recommended that any notice of lack of conformity is submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any return of goods must be sent to DALBY DIAMONDS address as listed in § 10.1 and delivered via secure courier, such as FedEx. When returning as item, please describe any faults as detailed as possible. PLEASE NOTE! We do NOT receive packages COD.
7.2 When returning a faulty item to DALBY DIAMONDS (contact us for a shipping address), the item must be securely packaged in the original packaging as delivered by DALBY DIAMONDS. Damage to the item as a result of negligent packaging may cause the customer to forfeit his or her lack of conformity rights. When returning any item, the order number must be provided to DALBY DIAMONDS for reference.
7.3 Wear and tear does not fall under lack of conformity rights, not is it a fault in the item. All jewelry will show signs of wear when worn regularly. All types of surfaces(shiny, mat and so on) will change appearances as a result of wear. All surface coatings (oxidation, rhodium and so on) will, in time, disappear as a result of wear. The degree of wear is determined on how often the jewelry is worn. The jewelry must be worn with due observation for the jewelry’s construction. Tenuous and hollow designs along with jewelry with diamonds imbedded in common prongs (where the diamond shares prongs with the adjoining diamond) only suit gentle occasional wear. Items with fragile materials, including certain types of gems, are also only suited for gentle use. Compact and massive designs are better suited to daily wear.
To be able to enjoy your jewelry the longest, we recommend that you:
- do not wear your jewelry while sleeping, showering, engage in sports, on the beach, doing yard work and orhter similar activities.
- do not expose your jewelry to perfume, hair spray, body lotion, sunscreen, or other similar products with chemical compounds that may affect the materials of the jewelry.
- regularly have your jewelry checked and serviced, as the sockets containing gems can loosen over time if subjected to bumps or drops.
Damages sustained accidentally (drops, bumps, hits or similar) are not included in the lack of conformity rights. Changes in color and spillover from metals due to the individual composition of perfume, creme, sweat and so forth are completely natural and safe and is therefore not included in the lack of conformity rights.
