Our warranty

44.  Our warranty is the foundation for a long lasting relationship with you, our customer.  While we strive for the highest quality, on rare occasions faults can happen and the purpose of this part of the T&Cs is to make it clear where responsibilities lie in the event of a fault.

45.  Our warranty covers craftsmanship faults.  It does not cover accidental damage, incidental damage, normal wear and tear, theft, accidental loss, or any damage that our craftsmen deem is not due to craftsmanship-related issues.  Also, if the piece has been altered in any way, the warranty no longer covers the item, unless the alterations have been completed by De Chenecey Designs.

46.  If in the opinion of our craftsmen the fault is due to a manufacturing defect De Chenecey Designs will repair the item free of charge.  If repair is not possible or is uneconomic you will be offered a replacement item or a refund.

47.  The most likely issue is with precious stones rather than metalwork.  Please note the following:

a.  Any ring made by De Chenecey Designs containing precious stones is checked for the condition of the stone and the security of settings before being given to you

b.  You are strongly advised to check stone setting security regularly.  Please contact us if you would like advice on how to do this.  We recommend that you bring your jewellery to be checked for signs of any wear and tear so that we can pre-empt any problems occurring.

c.  If you suspect a potentially loose stone in an item made by De Chenecey Designs, we will be glad to make any adjustments necessary.  This will be free of charge if within a reasonable period of time (taken as up to the 6 month point) from the date of purchase.

d.  In the unlikely event of a stone falling out, we will reset the stone free of charge if the defect has occurred within a reasonable period of time (taken as up to the 6 month point) from the date of purchase and the fault is due to a manufacturing defect not accidental damage or fair wear and tear

e.  If a stone is lost owing to a manufacturing defect but not accidental damage or fair wear and tear we will replace the stone free of charge if the defect has occurred within a reasonable period of time from the date of purchase (taken as up to the 6 month point).

f.  We strongly advise you to have adequate insurance in place to cover potential theft, loss or damage of precious stones and jewellery.


48.  Unless otherwise expressly stated in these T&Cs, all notices from you to us must be in writing and sent by e-mail to our contact address at sales@decheneceydesigns.co.uk.


49.  If any part of these terms and conditions is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected.
