Coronavirus Update for Delivery
In light of the current situation regarding COVID-19, we have implemented many precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our staff and customers. We would like to say it’s currently business as usual, with our shops and workshops all open during normal hours.
The delivery of internet orders is currently within our usual dispatch time, however we cannot guarantee that the postal services which we use will remain as efficient as usual because of greater demand and staff shortages. If you require an item urgently, please contact us directly and we can update you on the latest information we can obtain.
Extra cleaning measures for stock and the retail shops are being undertaken on a regular basis. We would advise however that because jewellery will be worn close to your skin, to wash any jewellery purchased, with hot soapy water (with the exception of pearls) This will not harm the jewellery and although the risk is low, it will put you mind at rest.
