Before buying any products from our online shop on our website georgjensen.com/en-gb (“our website”) please read these Terms and Conditions thoroughly as they, together with the documents referred to within them, tell you the terms and conditions on which you purchase, and we supply to you, our products.
If you do not understand any point please ask for further information. In particular, your attention is drawn to the sections under the heading PRICES AND PAYMENT, RIGHT TO CANCEL, and LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER. By clicking on the tick box stating that you “accept the terms and conditions” you are acknowledging that you have read and agreed to these terms and conditions.
We hope you will enjoy using our online shop.
Placing an order
By placing an order through our site, you warrant that:
- you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; and
- you are at least 18 years old.
After placing your order we will send you an e-mail confirming that you have placed your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a product.
All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that your order has been filled and shipped (“Shipping E-mail”). The contract between you and us will only be formed when we send you the Shipping E-mail.
Where a product requires hallmarking due to mandatory law (your proof of the value of the precious metal), the shipping tracking number provided will only be activated 72-96 hours after processing of the order.
We do not accept orders for delivery outside the UK on our website. To ship to other countries, including Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Overseas Territories, click “United Kingdom” in the top right corner of the desktop site or in the menu on mobile and select your destination country from the list that appears. Select “Other countries” for the above islands, etc.
Prices and payment
All prices are listed in Great British Pounds (“GBP”) and include VAT, currently 20%. We reserve the right to change our prices with immediate effect and without prior notice. Prices are typically adjusted on 1 February each year. The price applicable to your purchase is that which is listed on the website for the product in question at the time that you place your order.
Shipping methods and fees
The below delivery charges are for deliveries within the UK only.
- Standard delivery: GBP 6.50, except where free shipping is advertised on our website.
See below for delivery timescales. Free shipping may be offered in connection with campaigns.
The shipping charges will be listed on the checkout pages and in the order confirmation that you will receive via e-mail.
To place an order to be shipped to countries other than the UK, including Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man and Overseas Territories, click “United Kingdom” in the top right corner of the desktop site or in the menu on mobile and select your destination country from the list that appears. Select “Other countries” for the above islands, etc.
Free shipping (within the UK) for orders above £100
Georg Jensen offers free delivery within the UK for items providing you spend £100 or more in one transaction.
We accept payment with the following cards: VISA, VISA Debit, VISA Electron, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro. There are no surcharges for payments made with these credit cards. When you place an order, the payment total will be reserved on your account, but the money will not be deducted from your account until we ship your order.
Georg Jensen encrypts all of your card data with the so-called SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. 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 our website. Note that the page where you provide your payment information looks different from the rest of the shop. This is due to the requirement from Ingenico ePayments that the page must be secure and the information encrypted.
You can order online at any time you wish. The Georg Jensen staff processes orders Monday - Thursday 8:00 - 15.00, Friday 8:00 - 14:30. Orders placed outside of these hours will be processed on the following business day.
Delivery will be made to the UK delivery address provided by you.
You can expect to receive your order within 1-6 business days, cf. below:
- if we have received your order before 10am on a day which is not a weekend or bank holiday (“business day”), the next business day;
- if you place your order after 10am it will be dispatched the following business day;
- if hallmarking of a product of precious metals is required, the expected delivery time will be up to 6 business days.
However we cannot guarantee local delivery conditions, and so cannot provide a guaranteed delivery time at the customer/recipient address. If the desired product is not in stock at the time you place your order, we will contact you by phone or e-mail to make arrangements.
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 delivery address, the insurance will lapse, and you will be responsible for looking after the products. If your package is damaged upon arrival, we recommend that you make a note that you have received 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.
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.
In the lower part of the return form that is included with your package, you can specify why and to what you want the product exchanged.
Restrictions on cancellations, refunds and exchanges
You will be refunded for standard delivery charges only for cancellations.
You shall not have the right to cancel your order for, or to exchange, goods which are clearly personalised.
The procedures set out here to cancel an order or exchange a product do not affect your right to reject faulty goods.
