Returns

We want you to be delighted with your Ivory & Co purchase. If you're not happy for whatever reason, you have 14 days (from the date you receive your order) to return part or all of your order.

Need to send a return to us? Please complete the Returns Form sent with your order and return the product to us in accordance with the Returns Procedure. For further details, including important information on international returns, please read below.

We understand that from time to time you may wish to return a product to us. We have created this 14-day returns policy to enable you to return products to us in appropriate circumstances. This policy does not affect your statutory rights (such as your rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 and the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000).

Where you have no other legal right to return a product and receive a refund or exchange, then you will nonetheless be entitled to return a product to us where:

(a) we receive the returned product within 14 days following the date of receipt of the product;
(b) the returned product is unused, in its original packaging and otherwise in a condition enabling us to sell the product as new;
(c) you comply with the returns procedure set out below; and
(d) none of the exclusions set out below apply.

Damaged items will be replaced with the same item only. Damaged items will not be refunded. Ivory & Co. merchandise is quality checked and carefully packaged, however occasionally the postal service will handle a package roughly and the contents become damaged. In this case we will happily replace the item. (At times some customers have damaged items they don't like, seeking a refund. We will not refund damaged items, we only replace them with the same item at our expense).

Exchanges : We are not able to issue refunds for goods returned outside of our 14 working days returns policy, however we do have an excellent exchange policy. Any item may be exchanged up to the value spent for any other item in the Ivory & Co. range of products for a period of up to 6 months after the date of purchase as long as this does not go past your wedding date. We are very proud of this rare policy which was set up to enable brides who have to wait a long time for dress fittings etc to swap for alternative accessories if the original ones purchased do not suit the wedding dress or are unsuitable for a hairstyle etc... Items may only be exchanged for alternative items if they are unused, undamaged and in saleable condition. (It is at the discretion of Ivory & Co. to decide upon receipt of the goods whether they fit this description).

Postage, shipping or handling charges are not reimbursable.

Unfortunately due to reasons of hygiene pierced earrings cannot be refunded or exchanged.

To avoid making the wrong decision ie. choosing a tiara which when it arrives may not suit your dress or colouring or hairstyle and incurring the postage charge, please take time to read our 'Inspiration for brides' section of the website as it may help you to choose accessories according to any particular theme your wedding may have or to the style of your wedding dress. Finally you can call 01684 592030 and ask for any of our expert advisors. They have extensive experience and would be happy to give advice on your choice of accessories.
