Terms And Conditions
The 100% satisfaction guarantee.
All of our products carry a full money back guarantee. If you are not entirely delighted with the goods you have chosen, please return them to us unused within seven days for a full refund or exchange. Please ensure that the goods are in perfect condition, unused and in their original packaging.
If for any reason you're unhappy with any standard purchase, then under the Long Distance Sales Act you can return it to us unworn and in its original condition, strictly within seven days of the day after the date of receipt, for a refund or an exchange. Please note we will refund the cost of the item minus any postage and packaging costs. If you wish to exchange your item, a postage cost may be applied to send out an alternative design. You will also be reponsible for the postage costs of returning any unwanted items to us. It is crucial that you return your item within seven days, as after this period of time we are not obliged by law to offer you an exchange or refund. If you fail to contact us to arrange an exchange or refund outside of the seven period we will be unable to assist you. If your item arrives damaged then please inform us immediately of any faults and we will assist you with either an exchange or refund. If you would like to return an item within the seven day period, you MUST contact us first so that we can authorise the return and issue a returns number. All unwanted items MUST be returned within 3 days of authorisation, with their original packaging and condition, unworn. Please note failure to adhere to the terms and conditions of our returns policy may result in the refusal of an item refund or exchange. Once you have been issued with a returns number, you should then write it clearly on the returns slip enclosed in your order and then send us the item back via recorded mail to Uneak Boutique, 74 Whaggs Lane, Whickham, Newcastle, NE16 4PW.
Goods returned to us arriving damaged will not be credited. Goods returned to us but not received will also not be credited as all items remain the customers property until returned back and received by Uneak Boutique. We advise that all unwanted items are returned using a recorded method of posting for insurance purposes and to protect against loss. The delivery charge on the original order is not refunded. Please see our returns policy for full details on return and exchanged goods.
Our products are guaranteed against manufacturing faults, but not misuse. To maintain the condition of your jewellery remove when showering, swimming or when undertaking manual or domestic work. Sterling silver will tarnish with time and wear. To take care of your sterling silver jewellery, polish it frequently with a soft dry cloth to avoid tarnish (do not use silver dip). Ideally use a silver polishing cloth to ensure that your jewellery continues to retain its original condition. We recommend you protect your silver jewellery by storing it in a cool, dry place, keeping individual pieces separate to avoid scratching. To bring back sparkle from faceted gemstones use warm water, washing up liquid and a small soft toothbrush. Avoid contact with chemicals, perfume, hairspray and deodorant. These products can seriously discolour your jewellery. When applying perfume to the skin, allow it to dry thoroughly before putting on jewellery and never spray perfume directly on to jewellery items. Please see our Jewellery Care Policy for more information on how to care for your jewellery.
What is Sterling Silver?
Sterling silver is a metal containing at least 92.5% silver. This is the legal standard of purity set by the assay offices in Britain and used for most silver jewellery throughout the world. It means that the metal used is of a specific quality. Pure silver is never used, as it is too soft to be practical. The only other silver we sell is precious metal art clay silver which is handmade by Love Lily Handmade Jewellery. This silver is crafted and shaped and then hand fired. All finished pieces are hallmarked with an official assay office stamp and are 99.9% silver.
Each item you order from Uneak Boutique is sent to you enclosed in a complimentary, gift box. We can also upgrade your packaging to something with a bit more of the wow factor if your item is for a gift. Upgrades on packaging can be made by visiting the Gift Wrap Service section. A small additional cost will apply to choose an upgraded giftbox. We also have gift bags and handmade cards to personalise your order even further. These are detailed in are handmade cards and gift wrapping sections and we can add a personal message to the card if you email us at the time of purchase.
We are committed to protecting your privacy; we will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully (in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998). We collect information about you firstly, to process your order and second, to provide you with the best possible service.
This is the way we handle information:
When a visitor gives us an e-mail address while placing an order, or when visitors send us e-mail correspondence, we retain the visitor's e-mail address. We contact visitors by their e-mail address to confirm an on-line order, to respond to a sender's e-mail query and occasionally to inform customers about new products and promotions. All customer email addresses our added to our mailing list to notify our customers of special offers and discounts. Customers can choose to unsubscribe from our mailing list at anytime.
We retain information provided by our customers, such as transaction information i.e. the dates on which customers made purchases, amounts and types of purchases. Along with the contact information i.e. customer name, address, email address and a contact number. All Credit and debit card information is entered directly on the RBS Worldpay website therefore we do not have any access to, or the ability to store any customer credit or debit card details.
All customers agreeing to our terms and conditions will automatically be entered onto our Mailing list. However customers are free to unsubscribe from this list at anytime. Customers on our mailing list will receive periodic mailings from us with information on products. Promotions and special offers. We never bombard our customers with emails and never issue anymore than two email updates per month.
Customers who give us their telephone numbers online will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed online. We will use telephone numbers purely to inform a customer of a problem with their order if we have been unable to contact them via email.

We use couriers, Royal Mail first class, Recorded Delivery and Royal Mail Special Delivery to ship to areas within the United Kingdom only. We make sure your purchases arrive quickly and safely using the best postage methods available. Our standard orders take approximately 4-6 WORKING days to reach you, but we'll always do our best to get them there a little quicker if we can. We aim to process all orders received before 2pm on the same day, orders received after 2pm will be processed the following working day so our 4 to 6 day delivery period starts from when an order is placed. Please note weekends are not included in estimated delivery times. Our standard deliveries take4 to 6 WORKING days. During busy periods like Christmas and other special occasions it may take a little longer due to lots of extra people shopping online. Please note priority will always be given to our Express Delivery customers. We also can't control when companies go on strike and affect customer's delivery times, so in the event of these situations we ask for your patience. Once our orders are posted, their arrival is out of our control so please understand this, but we will do all we can to assist you with any queries. If you're order is UGRENT and you need it quickly please select our EXPRESS DELIVERY service which is the fastest and most efficient way to receive your purchase. We do not currently offer a next day service. Please be aware that all of our orders are delivered by either Royal Mail or a Courier Service and therefore require a signature. If your item is delivered and you're unable to take receipt of your parcel because you're not home, this is not our fault and refunds will not be issued on this basis. We may also charge a postage cost to return the item to you. All orders are shipped to the delivery address listed at the time of purchase. This cannot be changed unless we are notified via email within a few hours from the time of the initial order. In certain cases and at our discretion, we will be unable to change the delivery address other than the delivery address detailed on the customer order at the time of purchase.
Bespoke jewellery, as well as limited edition handmade jewellery, will take around 7-14 working days to reach customers as these items are made to order. We'll keep you updated throughout the design process and aim to get your bespoke purchases delivered to you within this time frame. Due to the time and cost of materials involved, we do not offer refunds on bespoke or limited edition jewellery items as they are made to order. Any faulted items are repaired free of charge within a 12 month period. We will also cover the cost of postage for any faulted handmade items. We currently offer Free Standard Delivery (4-6 working days) on all orders over £35.00. Orders under £35.00 are charged at £2.65. We also offer an Express Delivery service of 2-3 working days at a cost of £4.99. However, at certain times of the year, particularly Christmas, we may remove our standard delivery charge and only offer express shipping to ensure all of our orders arrive quickly and efficiently through Royal Mail Special Delivery. This will ensure that we can send all items out using the fastest delivery method available from Royal Mail - Special Delivery or alternatively we will use a courier service. We will only normally apply these delivery charges during the last week of Christmas orders. During our summer holiday period, when we operate on a skeleton staff we will remove our express delivery so that only our free 4 to 6 day standard delivery is available. All of the customers on our mailing list are notified of any changes to our delivery policy prior to the changes taking effect. Our free standard delivery and express delivery service include handling, packaging as well as postage costs.

Parcels need to be missing for at least 2 WEEKS before we can either refund or exchange items. This is due to Royal Mail's terms and conditions.
