Your jewellery is designed and made in our workshop from 925 Sterling Silver, 375/750 Gold or 950 Platinum/Palladium sourced from UK bullion dealers and stones from UK gem dealers, and all the work to secure your Ash-Gem in the pendant is carried out by our skilled jewellers in our workshop promoting British trade and employment.
Even though the some of our pieces weigh below the legal requirement for hallmarking, we hallmark every piece and the quality of the metal is assured by the London or Sheffield Assay Office with our sponsor mark included, the 925, 375, 750 or 950 stamps for each precious metal purity we use, the London Lion or Sheffield Rose, and British lion of assay quality.
As your purchase is a handmade quality piece of jewellery made in Britain, we are sure that you will be completely satisfied with your Artemis jewellery and will not wish to be parted from it.
However, since all our jewellery is "made to order" and personalised using your material, the standard 14 day EU distance selling rules are exempted for "non faulty returns". This means that a piece cannot simply be returned due to a change of mind. For returns made after 30 days, we will repair or remake your pendant should it be found to be faulty. All returns to us require the item to be sent back with a completed returns form which we will send to you with the item.
