Why has my order been delayed?

Should you find that your order has encountered a delay, several factors could potentially be contributing to this situation;

The Item you have purchased is not current in stock. - At Lustre of London we do our best to hold stock of the most popular items and sizes. Unfortunately, due to large stockholding requirements it is not possible to hold all items in stock and some pieces of jewellery will have to be made to order. We will always inform you if this is the case and also let you know of an estimated delivery date before we start working on your order.

Your order has been dispatched as scheduled, but there are delays with the courier. - While we strive to ensure timely delivery, unforeseen circumstances with the courier may arise. If your order has not been delivered by the specified date, rest assured that we will liaise directly with the courier for an update. We are committed to keeping you informed and will promptly relay any information we receive from the courier regarding the status of your delivery.

Why is there no hallmark on my jewellery?

In the UK, specific requirements must be met for jewellery to be hallmarked. An item must reach a predefined weight to legally necessitate a hallmark, ensuring authenticity and quality. Rest assured, any item that is legally required to bear a hallmark will indeed have one, as it serves as a guarantee of its authenticity and compliance with regulatory standards.

The London Assay Office decides where to hallmark a piece of jewellery and this will usually be in a discrete location so it cant be seen when being worn, for example on the inside band of a ring.

While some items may not legally require a hallmark, they may not have one as the hallmarking process adds a small lead time to the manufacturing process and comes with an additional cost. At Lustre of London, we prioritize passing on savings to our customers. Therefore, if an item does not require a hallmark, you may notice a reduction in cost. Rest assured, regardless of whether an item is hallmarked, our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction remains unwavering.

Can I collect my order directly from Lustre of London?

Which items are excluded from the 30-day money back guarnatee?

Jewellery pieces which are made to order are generally excluded from our 30 day money back guarantee. This would include ring sizes smaller than a size "J" and larger than a size "Q" as they would be considered "outsized and would need to be specially made.

Rest assured that before your item is handcrafted we will always inform you if your order is not covered by this guarantee and do our best to accommodate for any specific circumstances.

Mistakes happen, thats why all rings sizes J-Q will be backed by our 30-day money back guarantee. This means your ring can be exchanged free of charge up to 30 days after the date of delivery.
