Bespoke Orders

12.1  The creation of Bespoke Orders will be undertaken in full confidence and discretion of the Client ordering the commission. From time to time, we may request in writing that the design is recreated for further sales or marketing purposes. This will only be done with the full written agreement of you the Client.

12.2  All of our designs and all rights associated with our designs, including Bespoke Orders, are owned by Gemma de Chamarel Ltd and remain our intellectual property. That means that to use these designs for any purpose without our permission would be an infringement of English Law. The client requesting the commission should not share the designs with a competitor or any other third party.

12.3  We do not allow the Client who has commissioned the piece to market and/or sell the Bespoke Order as their own.

12.4  We will provide a written estimate of the cost of undertaking the Bespoke Order at any stage as requested by the Client. The estimate is an approximation of the cost of the work being undertaken and is based upon similar prior work and the costs, among others, of the precious metals, gemstones used and manufacturing and shipping costs.

12.5  This estimated price does not constitute the final and confirmed price and at no stage will Gemma de Chamarel Ltd be liable to uphold an estimate.

12.6  After you the Client has approved and confirmed in writing the final design of the Bespoke Order we will provide you the Client in writing a final quote. A written quote from Gemma de Chamarel Ltd formalises a previous estimate and confirms the current price of your order.

12.7  We will hold this price for seven (7) days only from the date we issued to you in writing the final quote. After this time, we will provide you the Client with a new written quote.

12.8  After you the Client has approved and confirmed in writing our quote for your Bespoke Order we will confirm in writing the order, including final design and price. At this stage you the Client have entered into a Contract with Gemma de Chamarel Ltd.

12.9  Bespoke Orders require a 50% deposit upon our confirmation of the order. Work on your Bespoke Order will not start until Gemma de Chamarel Ltd has received your 50% deposit.

12.10  We will notify you the Client in writing once the Bespoke Order is ready to be dispatched to you.

12.11  The Client must pay within seven (7) days the outstanding 50% balance. We will not dispatch to the Client Bespoke Orders until payment has been received.

12.12  Gemma de Chamarel Ltd is not liable for any damage or delay to or loss of Bespoke Orders after the postal company and/or courier has accepted the Bespoke Orders for delivery. In the event of damage, loss or delay you the Client must claim directly with the postal company and/or courier.

12.13  The production and delivery timescale of Bespoke Orders is dependent on a number of factors, including the complexity of the item commissioned. We estimate an average timeframe of eight (8) weeks from start of production to delivery of the item.

12.14  All Bespoke Orders are payable by major credit card (American Express / MasterCard / Visa) or debit card (Solo / Maestro / Visa Debit / Visa Delta / Visa Electron).

12.15  Gemma de Chamarel Ltd retains sole discretion as to whether to accept or not to proceed with any Bespoke Order.

Gemma de Chamarel Ltd will only send the loose stone(s) and/or items of jewellery for examination and/or testing after we have received from the Client payment for the examination and/or testing. We will send you in writing the original of the third party’s examination and/or test result.

13.4  Following examination and, if appropriate, testing of the loose stone(s) and/or item(s) of jewellery we will submit to you the Client a written estimate of the cost of undertaking the Bespoke Order, as per Clause 12.4.

13.5  We estimate that this examination and, if appropriate, testing process and the written submission to you of an estimate may take up to two (2) weeks.

13.6  Gemma de Chamarel Ltd reserves the right to refuse to work with loose stone(s) and/or item(s) of jewellery as supplied by you the Client.

13.7  Should Gemma de Chamarel Ltd refuse for whatever reason to work with the loose stone(s) and/or item(s) of jewellery as supplied by you the Client, Gemma de Chamarel Ltd will return to you the loose stone(s) and/or item(s) of jewellery by exactly the same method of delivery free of charge.
