Terms & Conditions

Alex Monroe Jewellery School Classes 

By booking any of our Jewellery School Classes, we kindly ask you to read the following information, and agree to our terms and conditions.

What’s Included:

Depending on the theme of the class, we will provide a selection of Sterling Silver charms, and the components and findings you need to make them into a piece of finished jewellery.  

Your piece can be gold-plated if you wish, but this will be completed by an external supplier, so we will send it on to you when complete.

Attendees of our classes will start the day with tea / coffee and a pastry, and we break for a group lunch, which is also provided.  We also take a short afternoon break for tea and cake, and the day ends with a glass of bubbly as a cheers to all your hard work! A member of our team will be in touch with you to discuss dietary requirements.

Age Requirements:

Due to insurance reasons, we do request that all attendees of the class are aged 18 and over.

Health & Safety:

All participants should wear comfortable shoes with covered toes, we also recommend wearing casual clothing, although we do provide aprons for you to wear on the day.

If you are, or have been ill in any way within 48 hours of the course, we would kindly ask you not to attend - but please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your options.

Timing:

We recommend arriving at 10.30am to meet the team and your fellow classmates for tea / coffee and a pastry ahead of spending the day together. Your Jewellery School class will then start promptly at 11am, and you will leave around 5pm with a wonderful piece of jewellery, handcrafted by you!

Payment:

All payment must be made in full at the time of booking, via our website. We are unable to take provisional bookings, and cannot confirm places until we receive full payment.

Delivery:

Upon purchasing a place on one of our Jewellery School classes online, you will receive an order confirmation by email.  We will then send a ticket by post, which is especially useful if you are giving the class as a gift.  A member of our team will then follow up with more specific details via email, at a later date.

Liability:

Unfortunately, we are unable to take responsibility for the loss of any personal possessions during the day - but do get in touch if you have lost something, and we will do our best to help!

Social Media:

Our team will be taking photographs and footage of the class on the day, which will be shared on our social media channels.  If you do not wish to be photographed, please let one of the team know.

We are more than happy for you to share photographs / video taken during your session on social media.  Please be mindful that this would be best done after the class, so that everyone has full concentration. 

Insurance:

You may wish to look into insurance that will cover your costs in the event of being unable to attend your class at short notice - such as illness of yourself or an immediate relative, travel disruption etc.  We cannot be held liable for any third-party costs, such as travel bookings or accommodation.

Privacy Policy:

As always, we do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

Refunds & Cancellations:

  • Our Jewellery School classes are for a maximum of 10 people, and run in addition to our day to day business.  Because of the small size of the classes and the preparation required, we do need to make the following stipulations:

  • If you are no longer able to attend your Jewellery School class, we will require a minimum of 10 days notice.  We can then issue you with a full refund or, where possible - transfer your ticket to another date.  Please give us as much notice as you can, as we will need to re-sell your ticket. 

  •  If you need to cancel less than 10 days before the class, we will still pro-actively seek to refill your place, but if we are unable to do so in the given time, the full price of your ticket will unfortunately be lost. If we successfully resell your ticket, we can issue you with a full refund or, where possible - transfer your ticket to another date.  

  • If we do not have any classes scheduled to transfer your place onto, we will issue a full refund.

    In an instance where you are unable to attend at short notice, we would be happy for you to send someone in your place - but please let us know, so that we can send them the relevant information for the class, and check any dietary requirements.

  • We require a minimum or 8 participants per class and reserve the right to cancel or postpone a class due to insufficient numbers. 

  • In the rare instance that one of our team became unavailable - and we are unable to replace them, we would again, reserve the right to either postpone or cancel the class.

  • In either of these unlikely events, we would offer a transfer to an alternative class wherever possible, or a full refund - and of course give you as much notice as possible.

  • Please always get in touch with us if you have any issues - we will not be able to issue refunds or transfers on any unattended classes without prior notice.

  • Any refunds made can only be done so to the original source of payment.

Late and Lost Deliveries

If your delivery has been delayed, then please contact us and we will provide you with the tracking number to enable you to locate it with Royal Mail.

We cannot refund or replace lost items until 20 working days after the date of despatch (30 days for international items) - this is when the Royal Mail classes items as being lost.

International delivery - When items are sent to another country, your parcel is often handled by more than one postal service. When we send a parcel abroad, the actual delivery of the item will be the responsibility of the postal service in the country the items are going to. Delays can often be caused by customs checks, which can sometimes take up to 1-2 weeks.

Items not received but tracked as being delivered - This frequently happens when items are delivered to places of work. In some cases, your item might have been delivered to a post room or colleague within your company and someone else will have signed for it. You can check the signature of the person that has signed for the parcel, by entering your tracking number on the Royal Mail website. Please note that we do not refund or replace items that are tracked as being delivered. For this reason, we always recommend that you get items delivered to your home address.

Alex Monroe cannot be held responsible for goods that are lost or delayed in transit.

Goods are charged at price shown on the product pages on the date the customer places the order and are inclusive of VAT. Errors and omissions are excepted. Orders will be processed at our published prices, otherwise, in the case of any unexpected change in price, you will be informed and asked if you wish to reconsider your order before proceeding. All prices are stated in British Pounds Sterling £GBP. If you are purchasing from outside the UK, currency exchange rates and credit card charges may make a difference to the amount billed on your credit card.

We may from time to time offer promotional discount codes (either directly or via third parties). These codes may only be applied to purchases of full-price items and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or discounts.

We always welcome feedback from our customers as it enables us to improve our service. If we should receive a complaint about any part of our service, by phone, email or letter, then it will be dealt with promptly. Please contact us here.
