Online shopping

We have taken care in presenting the products on our website as accurately as possible. The images you see will depend on your monitor's display and colour capabilities. We are therefore unable to guarantee that the product images you see are an accurate representation of the actual merchandise. Before you place an order you should read the Delivery Information and Returns Policy.

Validation checks

All credit, debit and charge card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

In addition, in the interests of preventing fraudulent use of credit, debit and charge cards, we will validate the names, addresses and other information supplied during the order process against commercially available records (e.g Electoral Roll data, Credit Reference Services). A third party may also be instructed to complete these checks. By ordering from the Nightingale.co.uk website you consent to such checks being made. We may need to contact you by letter, telephone or email to verify details before we are able to process and dispatch your order, or we may be unable to accept your order. Any information given may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of the information.

All information provided will be treated in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. These measures are taken as extra protection for you, to ensure your online shopping experience with us is as safe and secure as possible.

Orders

Once you have completed an online purchase, we will send you an email confirming your order details.

Goods will not be despatched until payment collection has been successful.

Whilst we are under no obligation to accept your order, we would normally do so where: 

  1. the product is available
  2. the order reflects current pricing 
  3. your credit card/debit card payment is approved by your credit card/debit card company and 
  4. your order passes our verification checks

We cannot accept orders from persons under the age of 18.

 How do I know exactly when my order will be delivered?

If you have selected a residential or business address for delivery, once you have received your despatch confirmation your delivery will be due the following business day.

The Nightingale 10-year Diamond Promise

At Nightingale we are proud of our reputation as suppliers of quality jewellery.

We are pleased to offer a 10 year Diamond Promise on all certificated items.

The diamond purchase detailed on the certificate is guaranteed against flaws in workmanship, for a period of ten years from the date of purchase.

If you feel that your item is subject to a manufacturing fault please call 01904 211087 or email us at hello@nightingale.co.uk. You will need to include a copy of the certificate and your receipt. After inspection, should the fault be found to be of a manufacturing origin, Nightingale will then implement full remedial work at no expense to you.

  • The 10 year diamond promise is null and void should any work be carried out on the item by a third party jeweller.
  • The 10 year diamond promise does not cover loss or damage caused by accident, misuse, neglect or normal wear and tear.
  • The 10 year diamond promise is not transferable and does not affect your statutory rights.

Returns Policy

Nightingale will provide a full refund or exchange should you receive a faulty item or be unsatisfied with an item received on the following conditions:

Our promise to replace the item or refund your money does not apply to faults or damages caused by accident, neglect or misuse.

Except in relation to faulty or incorrectly supplied goods, where your statutory rights are unaffected, personalised goods or goods made to a customer's specifications may not be returned. This includes any item that has been modified or items that have been produced from specially ordered or hand made component parts, including jewellery containing lab grown diamonds.

This does not affect your statutory rights.

Cancellations

Under the Consumer Protection Regulations, you have the right to cancel your order with us at any time within 7 days of placing your order. In the event we are unable to deliver your order within our standard delivery timescales you are entitled to cancel your order with no penalty. Should you cancel the contract we will then refund you the price you have paid for the goods. You are under a duty to take reasonable care of the goods, which means the goods must be unused and in pristine condition. Please contact our customer service team should you wish to cancel your order on 01904 373001. Lab grown diamonds are supplied to order and we give you the option to view the cetificate prior to purchase. As these items are specially ordered they fall outside of our return policy.

The distance selling regulations do not apply to bespoke, personalised or modified items.

Statutary rights are not affected.

Lost packages

Even though packages are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery, on rare occasions we do experience losses whilst in transit. Please get in touch with our customer service team if you think this may be the case with your order.

Please be aware that if we are not contacted within 30 days, an insurance claim cannot be made and thus the customer will be unable to claim any loss from Nightingale.

Delivery address

A signature will be required to receive the order and you will be responsible for the products as soon as they are delivered. Ownership of the products shall pass to you once we have received payment in full.

If you decide to have your order delivered to an address different from your own, a signature will still be required and the general conditions of delivery will remain unchanged. We reserve the right, for security reasons, to deliver to the billing address only, even if a different delivery address has been requested. This is for your protection and we will always inform you of this prior to despatch to ensure there will be someone available to sign for the package,
