This means that unauthorised persons cannot read your card number or other information transmitted during the transaction with Ingenico ePayments, who handles payments for purchases made on georgjensen.com.

You can expect to receive your order within 4-7 business days when we have the item in stock. As Georg Jensen cannot guarantee local delivery conditions, Georg Jensen cannot provide a guaranteed delivery time at the customer/recipient address.

As a consumer, you have the right to cancel the purchase order if the delivery is delayed in relation to the applicable agreement.
We insure all shipments against loss and damage while they are in transit from Georg Jensen to the recipient address. As soon as the shipment has been signed for at the agreed address, the insurance will lapse. If your package is damaged upon arrival, we recommend that you make a note that you are receiving a damaged package when signing for the shipment.
RIGHT OF WITHDRAWAL
You have the right to cancel your purchase within 14 days without explanation. The right of withdrawal lapses 14 days after receipt of the goods.
To use your right of withdrawal, you must inform us unambiguously that you wish to withdraw, e.g. by letter or e-mail. You cannot simply choose not to receive/sign for the package upon delivery. You may use the return form that is enclosed with your package, but this is not obligatory. You can also download the return form here.
If you wish to cancel a purchase, you must return the product to us. You will be liable for any deterioration in the product's value that is due to handling other than what is necessary to determine the products' nature, characteristics and method of functioning. Since the product's packaging, such as boxes for jewellery, watches and other items, is important for possible resale of the product, any damage to or failure to return the packaging will be deemed to be a deterioration in its value. You assume the risk of ensuring that the product is packaged responsibly when it is returned.
You must return the product(s) without undue delay and no later than 14 days from the date on which you informed us of your wish to withdraw.
Product returns must be sent to the following address:
Georg Jensen A/S
If you wish to arrange for return shipping yourself, then you pay the return shipping cost. Remember to duly insure the shipment so that you may claim compensation from the shipping provider if your package is lost in transit.
We will pay for the return shipping cost provided that you follow the below procedure. Please note that we do not accept packages sent as cash on delivery.
Products should be returned via UPS. Send an e-mail to Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line:
“Return/Exchange of order number xxxxxxxxx (insert your order number which can be found on your Order Confirmation)”.
We will contact you and arrange for pick-up by UPS. We will make sure that the relevant paperwork is completed and that UPS collects the package during normal working hours at a place convenient to you. Alternatively we can e-mail you a freight label and you can drop off the package at the nearest UPS store.
When you cancel a purchase we will refund your payment to your account as soon as possible and no later than 14 days after we have received your notification that you wish to withdraw. We can, however, withhold the refund until we have received the return product or you have provided us with documentation showing that the product has been returned. If you follow the above procedure for returning with UPS via our Customer Service, you meet this requirement.
Refunds are transferred to the payment card with which the purchase was made. In connection with pre-payment via bank transfer, the refund will be transferred to the account from which payment for the purchase was made.
These return instructions are also included on the return form that is included with your package.
THE DANISH SALE OF GOODS ACT
In addition to the above, as a customer you are protected by a 2 year warranty for defects in accordance with the general provisions of the Danish Sale of Goods Act.
If you wish to exchange a product you purchased, Georg Jensen will pay the return shipping cost as described above for the first exchange. If a product is to be exchanged multiple times, e.g. if the size is wrong, you must pay the shipping costs for any additional exchange.
