In case of unavailability of the product or impossibility to manufacture the product, and even if the (potential) client has transferred money to VANITY SECRETS LTD. by wire transfer (hereby endorsing its intention to purchase), this does not bind Vanity Secrets Ltd. to deliver and Vanity Secrets Ltd. can still decide to repay the same sum. Of course Vanity Secrets Ltd. commits itself to communicate as soon as possible the reason of repayment. VANITY SECRETS LTD. reserves the right to mention a truthful, yet indicative number of pave diamonds on the website or in tailor made quotations, for every jewel containing pave diamonds smaller than 0.40 ct. that may vary in size (i.e. pave rings, bracelets, tailor-made jewellery, etc.). These possibly slight differences result from considerations regarding durability, strength & flexibility of our jewelry. VANITY SECRETS LTD. undertakes to communicate this truthful, but nonetheless indicative number of diamonds as well as possible to the Client. For all jewellery for which the size does not affect the number of pave diamonds (i.e. earrings, pendants, etc.) present in the jewel, the number communicated on the website is not indicative, but very accurate.
As to tailor-made jewels, our experts always make an approximate calculation of the number of small diamonds in the jewel based on the pictures or information we are provided with. This number is rough and may be slightly rounded during the evolution of the manufacturing process. Given that any small change to the reduction or increase in the number of small diamonds will have no real effect on price, the price will remain the same in either case. Regarding the sale of colored gemstones (tourmaline, sapphire, emerald, …), any indication of size, carat age of the gemstone(s) will always be communicated as accurate as possible. These values remain indicative. The images of colored gemstones on the website or accompanying a personal offer, strive to be a realistic representation of the given stone(s). A divergency in color, due to incidence of light, current natural light conditions or the use of artificial light is possible. If the client requires exact information on the color and other properties of the given stone(s), it is possible to acquire a certificate (by a renowned laboratory) of the given stone(s). The certification of colored stone(s) is not offered standardly, since this is not customary.

In case of unavailability of the product or impossibility to manufacture the product, and even if the (potential) client has transferred money to Vanity Secrets Ltd. by wire transfer (hereby endorsing its intention to purchase), this does not bind Vanity Secrets Ltd. to deliver and Vanity Secrets Ltd. can still decide to repay the same sum. Of course Vanity Secrets Ltd. commits itself to communicate as soon as possible the reason of repayment. When the price of a product, mentioned in the offer or a quotation, is different from the real price, a representative of VANITY SECRETS LTD. will contact the client, before expedition of the purchased product, in order to leave him the possibility to either pay the price difference, or to renounce the purchase.

VANITY SECRETS LTD. exerts herself to give a realistic and detailed picture of her products on her website. It could happen that a product is enlarged or reduced on the picture in order to allow the client to have a detailed view of the product. The client must be aware that each screen is calibrated in a different way so that image and colors can be slightly different from reality.
Determination and selection of the appropriate ring size
Vanity Secrets provides the customer with as many tools as possible so that customers are able to correctly determine their ring size even when ordering at distance. After determining the ring size (no matter through which mean), the choice and the order of the right size is the customer’s responsibility and not Vanity Secret Ltd. This applies to all means of ring size determining, I with a standard metal ring sizer. Customers must make a decision based on their own impressions (ex. preference for a tighter or wider size …). Moreover, given the number of different ring styles and the fact that our products are hand-crafted, Vanity Secrets is by no means able to ensure that the metal thickness of the finished products will be 100% equal to that of demonstration models available in our showrooms), this means that depending on the different models there might be slight discrepancies in the ring size.
