Our Contract With You

When you have chosen your item(s) from our website and proceeded to checkout, we will ask you to review your order carefully and correct any mistakes before submitting it to us. When you submit your order, you are offering to buy the goods at the prices set out on our website.

Payment in whole is required before dispatch of goods. Once payment has been received by us, we will confirm that your order has been accepted by sending a confirmation email to you at the email address you provide in your online order form.

The contract between us is not formed until we confirm acceptance of your order in writing. If an order has incomplete details or an item is not available we will contact you. Incomplete orders may be subject to delays.

Our acceptance of your order brings into existence a legally binding contract between us. Only adults (persons aged 18 and over) are entitled to enter into legally binding contracts and as a result are the only people entitled to transact through this site.

Your Rights To Cancel

As a consumer (not purchasing wholly or on behalf of a business), you have the right to cancel your contract with us for the good(s) you ordered and receive a refund from us. Refunds will only be accepted within 7 days of receiving your order, on items purchased on our website www.kokinara.com, with proof of purchase. The cancellation period expires after 7 days from the day on which this contract was entered into.

We will only allow refunds of unworn, unused and undamaged items, in their original packaging (original individual jewellery pouches and boxes), and we reserve the right to refuse a return that does not meet the above requirements.

The cost of return postage and applicable insurance lies with you.

To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision by email first. Visit our Returns Policy section for more details on how to get a refund, and when you may expect your refund.

Refunds will be processed (with the exception of the costs of delivery) no later than 14 days after the day we receive back from you all goods supplied, using the same means of payment used during the initial transaction.

Please note the following exceptions:

  • Exchanges are not accepted; you can return the item and place a new order.
  • “Final Sale” and/or markdown items can’t be returned or exchanged for any reason.

Once an order has been placed we are unable to make any changes or cancellations. You can return your order once you have received it (see Returns Policy for further details).

We reserve the rights, at our sole discretion, to refuse an order placed with us, to limit or cancel quantities purchased by person, per household or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing and/or shipping address.

We reserve the rights to cancel an order for the following reasons:

  • where any KOKINARA jewellery has been listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect descriptive information or image due to typographical error or similar oversight

  • you have ordered too many goods
  • currency fluctuations
  • any other reason that we deem appropriate

We endeavour to ensure that our pricing is updated and accurate, and we reserve the right to amend our prices at any time, without prior notice.

If you are purchasing goods from outside the UK, currency fluctuations and credit card charges may affect the amount billed on your credit card.

International orders may attract further taxes and duties dependent on the recipient country and the relevant import laws.

Payment of these taxes and duties may be necessary to release your order from customs on arrival.

Description Of Goods & Photography

We endeavour to ensure that all KOKINARA jewellery is described (whether in writing or photographically) as accurately as possible on our website. However, we cannot guarantee that all colours will be absolutely accurate at all times due to the computer monitor’s display and digital reproduction on different web browsing platforms. Where we become aware of any inaccuracies, we reserve the right to correct them.

Please note that all items are handcrafted and as such their composition and colour may vary slightly from the image shown. There may also be minor variations in actual dimensions and specifications. Some items may appear slightly larger or smaller than actual size due to screen defaults and photography techniques. Other items may be represented at a larger than actual size in order to clearly show details or smaller than actual size in order to show the entire item.

Images provided on our website and other media are solely for illustrative purposes and we cannot guarantee that any particular image has been reproduced in true colour to perfectly match the particular KOKINARA jewellery or to perfectly reflect the full design or options pertaining to our jewellery on our website or other media.

Delivery

It is your responsibility to ensure that the delivery address you give us is correct and that there is somebody to take delivery of the goods. Orders that are returned because of an invalid address may incur an additional shipping charge if they are reshipped.

All orders will aim to be dispatched within 1-2 business days, pending availability and credit verification, using Royal Mail services or an alternative carrier during any Royal Mail industrial action.

All customers will receive a confirmation email and a subsequent email informing them when we have dispatched the item(s).

We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages once declared “delivered” by the delivery service. We are unable to redirect orders once they have been dispatched.

While shipping internationally, we are not responsible for any customs, import duties and taxes applied to your order once it reaches your destination country.

The cost of delivery is payable by you. Delivery dates and times are estimates and may be subject to delays, including delays caused by you, by the carrier, the destination’s customs office or any other cause beyond our reasonable control. They may also be affected in times of high volumes and holiday season.

Limitations Of Liability

We do not guarantee, represent or warrant that your use of our service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error-free. We do not warrant that the results that may be obtained from the use of the service will be accurate or reliable. You agree that from time to time we may remove the service for indefinite periods of time or cancel the service at any time, without notice to you. You expressly agree that your use of, or inability to use, the service is at your sole risk. The service and all products and services delivered to you through the service are (except as expressly stated by us) provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ for your use, without any representation, warranties or conditions of any kind, either express or implied, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, merchantable quality, fitness for a particular purpose, durability, title, and non-infringement.

In no case shall we be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the service or any products procured using the service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the service or any product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the service or any content (or product) posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms and Conditions, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.

We are not liable for any breach of our obligations resulting from causes beyond our reasonable control.

Warranty

All our KOKINARA pieces are guaranteed for 1 year from the original purchase date.

Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims. Any KOKINARA jewellery returned to us for assessment alleging a fault must be delivered to us at your expense and risk and with proof of purchase.

In the unlikely event you received a damaged item, please notify us within 48 hours of receiving the item by sending an e-mail to support@kokinara.com, including clear photographs of the damage; a refund will only be accepted if the item has been delivered to the customer damaged. All items returned as faulty will be inspected, and any item displaying damage deemed to be a result of the faults mentioned in the above paragraph will not be accepted as faulty, and therefore not refunded.
