Can I Collect My Jewellery From Your Store?

You are more than welcome to visit our store and collect your jewellery. You can put this down at the checkout stage of your purchase or alternatively contact us on: craig[@]

Please note: You will need to bring your order invoice with you or you will not be able to take the item. Anyone who has not arranged a collection with us before visiting will not be able to take their item either. Collections are available Monday-Friday. Strictly no collections on Weekends.



Customers based in South Africa

Any of our South African- based customers will be subject to V.A.T at 14%. Don’t panic! The cost is already included for you.

International Customers

Our internationally-based customers have a few different options regarding V.A.T refunds.

If you’re collecting your item from our store then you can complete the applicable form while you’re with us. You then have 3 months from the date of purchase to claim this back. Once you reach customs at the airport, show them the item of jewellery and the completed form. They will then approve this for you. When you reach your destination please send us the stamped form back so we can refund the V.A.T amount. A small administration fee will be charged for completing this form.

Alternatively, if you’re buying from our website or over the phone and we are shipping the item to a country outside South Africa, your purchase can be made excluding V.A.T. Please contact us on craig[@] should you need any help with this.
