At Uneak we know how important it is for you to receive your order as soon possible so rest assured sending your shopping out asap is a top priority for us! Please note that for Credit and Debit Card Orders, we can only accept orders PLACED in the UK with UK Billing and shipping addresses.
Customers cannot place credit or debit card orders whilst overseas as our system will reject them.
We use couriers, Royal Mail Signed For Delivery and Royal Mail Special Delivery to ensure your purchases arrive quickly and safely - Both delivery options REQUIRE SIGNATURES! Orange Label Signed For Parcels must be signed for and may be left with a neighbour if you are not home. But Royal Mail Special Delivery items can only be signed for by the addressee. These cannot be left with a neighbour due to insurance reasons.
Our standard orders take 4-6 Working days to reach you, but we'll always do our best to get them there a little quicker if we can but please allow upto 6 days. We aim to process all orders received before 2pm on the same day, orders received after 2pm will be processed the following working day. During busy periods like Christmas and other special occasions it may take a little longer due to lots of extra shoppers! Please note priority will always be given to our express and next day delivery orders as customers pay a premium for these services.
It's simple really, if you need your order super quick, you'll need to select our express or next day shipping options. If you're happy to wait a little longer, then select our standard shipping service.

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 and we'll always do our best to get them there a little quicker if we can, however please allow up to 6 days when using our Free Delivery service.
Please be aware we can't control when postal 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 URGENT and you need it quickly please select our EXPRESS or NEXT DAY delivery service which are the fastest and most efficient ways to receive your purchase.
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 an item to you which is not collected at the post office and returned to us. Items sent back to the depot usually MUST be collected within a week but please contact your post office for more details.
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, this is due to the limitations of insurance set by some Credit/debit card companies as well as paypal.
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.
As of December 22nd 2015, we offer Free Standard Delivery (4-6 Working Days) on all orders over £20 at a cost of £1.95. We also offer an Express Delivery service of 2-3 working days at a cost of £3.95 and a Next Day delivery service at £7.49 - your parcel will require a SIGNATURE. At certain times of the year, particularly Christmas and other seasonal times, we may remove our standard delivery charge and only offer express or next day 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 one of the fastest and safest delivery methods 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 and next day delivery so that only our free 4 to 6 day standard delivery is available. These times vary and are detailed on our social media sites and via our mailing list. Usually one week in April and one week in September.
All of the customers on our mailing list are notified of any changes to our delivery policy prior to the changes taking effect and also detailed on our social networking pages. Our free standard delivery, express and next day delivery service include handling, packaging as well as postage costs.
