Order Acceptance And Cancellation

Your receipt of an electronic/other form of an order confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your order, nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to sell. We reserve the right at any time after receipt of your order to accept, decline, or limit your order for any reason, whether or not your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has been charged and your order is cancelled, you will receive a refund.

Payments

Payment Options

Janine Binneman Jewellery accepts payment via:

  • Credit Card

  • Snapscan

  • PayJustNow

  • Peach Payments

  • EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer)

We DO NOT accept lay buys.

For EFT’s received for international orders, all bank charges are for the client’s account.

Upon receiving your order, we carry out a standard pre-authorisation check on your payment card to ensure there are sufficient funds to fulfil the transaction. Orders will not be manufactured and goods will not be dispatched until the pre-authorisation check has been completed.

If the issuer of your payment card refuses to, or does not authorise payment for any reason, then you will be notified of this immediately prior to completing your purchase using the site at the checkout stage. Your card will be debited once the order has been accepted.

We are not able to look for payments on our bank statement – therefore we require you to email us your proof of payment.

DISCLAIMER: Orders will remain on hold until we receive an emailed proof of payment and we cannot be held liable for any delays in orders being completed, if proof of payment is not sent.

Customs Duties

You may also be liable for any customs and import duties, quotas, permits, product restrictions and other local requirements. These charges must be paid for by the recipient of the parcel. Customs policies vary widely from state to state and country to country. Therefore we suggest that you check the requirements in your country before placing an order. We will not be liable for any customs or import duties.

Changes In Products And Pricing

We are constantly updating and revising our offerings of products, and we may discontinue products at any time without notice. All pricing for our products is subject to change. For all of our prices and products, we reserve the right to make adjustments due to changing market conditions, currency fluctuations, product discontinuation, manufacturer price changes, errors in advertisements, and other extenuating circumstances.

Manufacturing And Shipping Policy

We aim to process your order within 72 hours of it being placed. We will try our best to have your order ready in 2 to 3 weeks for shipping, depending on stock and suppliers.

For custom orders, please allow 4 – 6 weeks for manufacturing, from the date of receipt of payment. Orders can be fast tracked at an additional fee of R250. We ship orders Mondays to Thursdays during office hours and we do not operate on Saturdays or public holidays.

Once you have received your parcel, please open it with care. Janine Binneman Jewellery is not liable for any items damaged during the opening of your parcel. Any guarantees or representations made as to delivery times are subject to any delays resulting from postal delays or force majeure for which we will not be responsible.

Metals

Our jewellery is made from Sterling Silver, Gold-Plated Sterling Silver, 9ct and 18ct Gold and Platinum. Sterling Silver in South Africa is 92.5% Silver and 7.5% Copper.

Metals naturally develop a surface of patina over time, caused by oxygen, perfumes and skin acidity. Silver jewellery also develops patina if it’s not worn regularly. You can use a soft cloth and some Handy Andy cream to clean most pieces of jewellery, with the EXCEPTION of pearls, opals and emeralds. Please DO NOT use this method to clean these precious gems.
Plating is NOT permanent. It does fade over time, depending on how often the piece is worn and can also be affected by chemicals such as chlorine, detergents and general day-to-day wear. Plating can also be affected by skin acidity and regular rubbing/cleaning of jewellery can shorten its lifespan.

Luckily, when the plating fades, the piece will merely go back to sterling silver and can be re-plated at any time.

Don’t panic if you have the “green finger effect” – it is merely a reaction to the copper alloy in the sterling silver that takes place, especially if you have high body acidity. It happens to about 2-3% of people and this percentage is increasing due to the increase of chemicals in our environment, medications we take and the foods we eat.

Keep your skin dry when wearing jewellery. Remove your rings before showering, sleeping, exercising, strenuous activities, or when using cleaning products.

Stones

All stones used by Janine Binneman Jewellery are naturally formed and hand cut, therefore there can be slight variations with colour and shape, making each stone unique.

Photographs

We take photographs of all pieces that are manufactured and sent out. We reserve the right to use these in advertisements on our social media pages, as well as sending them to the media.

Further to this, photographs serve to document the state in which the items leave our studio and what size we made them – especially when the items are rings.

Advertising Disclaimer And Trademarks

In the event that a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical errors or errors in pricing or product information received from our suppliers and brands, we shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for said products.

We shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card has been charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, we shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you may return it in accordance with our Return Policy, as set forth below.
