The colour looks slightly different from the pictures?

We have made every effort to reproduce colours on the site as accurately as possible. However, different computers and mobile devices reproduce colours in slightly different ways and so exact colour matches are not yet possible over the internet. Additionally, many of our jewellery items contain unique precious stones, which can vary in colour and shape.

This means that when you order products from the shop, colours may differ from what you see on the screen.

If you are not satisfied with the colour of the item you have ordered, we operate a returns policy.
