TERMS & CONDITIONS FOR gracegemsltd.com
Thank you for using the Grace Gems site (the 'site'). Use this section for
information about the terms and conditions that govern your use of the site.
You will also find information on orders and returns, your privacy and your
security. If you have any questions, please contact us by clicking the link
1. Complete satisfaction promise
Grace Gems Limited guarantees your total satisfaction with our
products and services. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your online
purchase, simply call us within 14 days and return the goods to us.
2. Contract for sale
The advertising of products on this site is an 'invitation to treat'. That
means your order is an offer, not a contract of sale between you and Grace
Gems, so prices and stock availability won't be contractually confirmed until
you receive the 'confirmation of order' email dispatched once credit card
authorisation has been confirmed and stock levels have been checked. These
terms and conditions cannot be varied except by changes made by Grace Gems on
the site, which we may make from time to time. In particular, nothing said by
any representative of Grace Gems will operate as a variation to these terms and
conditions or constitutes a legal representation on behalf of them.
3. Receipt of order
Grace Gems must receive payment in full for your order before it can be
accepted. Once your credit card has been authorized and stock is checked, Grace
Gems will send you an email receipt confirming your order. Please keep this
receipt for your records. We can only accept orders for items that are in
stock. In exceptional circumstances, if we are not able to fulfill an order we
have accepted, your credit card will be re-credited with the original price and
we will notify you by email. In no circumstances will we be liable to you for
any additional amounts. Grace Gems reserve the right to refuse to supply to any
person for whatever reason.
4. Returning a product
If you need to return an item purchased online, contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 877-768-5484. You will need to have
your original credit card details handy for this call and we will need to talk
to the person who bought the item (so if you e-mail us then please leave a
phone number). Our customer care department will give you a return
authorisation number, which you need to include with the items being returned
along with the name of the person that placed the initial order, their
telephone number and the original order number. Please return (in the original
packaging if possible) to Grace Gems. A prompt refund will be issued if the
item is in its original condition and all the information referred to above is
received. The credit card used for the original purchase will be credited with
the original price. If there are any problems with your refund, a member of
Grace Gems staff will contact you.
Refund will be issued only after the products(s) received back are being
inspected by our staff and they have approved that the item(s) are in its
original condition. gracegemsltd.com reserves the right to refuse any refunds
of any amount if the item(s) is not found in its original condition. In case of
refunds, only the product(s) amount will be refunded to the buyer and not the
shipping and insurance amount which the buyer paid at the time of purchase.
5. Cancellations and exchanges
If you realised you made a mistake and want to cancel your order, please
contact us. Since we ship quickly, it may not be possible to stop your order so
please follow the instructions for 'Returning a Product' in those instances.
Exchanges work in the same way. It will be faster to re-order a product rather
than send it back for an exchange, so please follow the above instructions
while you order the product you would like instead. We realise this means two
transactions on your credit card but feel it is faster for you to get the
product you would like.
6. Defective and damaged items
If you should receive an item that is defective, damaged or not what you
ordered, please contact us within 10 days. A member of Grace Gems staff will
help you resolve any issues as quickly as possible by delivering another item,
replacing your order or refunding the amount paid.
7. Customer care and call centre hours
If you need assistance for any reason, please contact us at
email@example.com. Representatives are available 9.30am to 5.30pm
(EST) Monday to Friday.

15. Gemstone Enhancement
Grace Gems Ltd. does not deal in any kind of lab created, man made, synthetic
stones or imitations. Though, most of the natural gemstones are being enhanced
in a manner commonly accepted by trade (GIA, AGTA & ICA). In general some
of the enhancement methods used are heating, treating, oiling, filling with
resign agents etc.
Some of the treatment methods used are coating, diffusion, dyeing, joban oil,
glass filling, irradiation, lasering etc. We do not know the methods used prior
to our purchase from the suppliers or our factories since each country uses
different methods. If required, we may send the gemstone(s) to a gem laboratory
for more information or issuing a certificate prior to your purchase, on your
request and expense.
In no matter or circumstances, Grace Gems Ltd. shall be held liable for any
such enhancements or treatments. In such conditions if the buyer is not
completely satisfied with the product(s), the only right reserved for the buyer
is to return the gemstone(s) back to Grace Gems Ltd. Within 14 days in its
original condition. Grace Gems Ltd. Will not accept any of its gemstone(s) back
if they are being tested by the buyer regardless of any gem laboratory, if not
found in its original condition
