If an order cannot be delivered, the parcel will be sent back to your local carrier centre and you will be left a card detailing how to arrange a re-delivery or local pick up.

Although we will do our very best, unfortunately we cannot guarantee that your order will arrive within the stated time as we are in the hands of third parties who may encounter difficulties and cannot guarantee a service. It is also because of this that we do not accept any liability or consequential loss for goods that arrive later than our target delivery times. If you require your purchase for a specific date, especially at Christmas and other peak periods during the year (Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Easter, Christmas), we strongly recommend that you place your order well in advance.
Please complete the Contact Us form advising of the issue that you have with the jewellery and we will get back normally within 48 hours.
Due to the nature of the manufacturing of the wearable it is not possible for you to change the strap on the wearable. But if you do need to change the strap, you may contact us and we can discuss what is possible for our team to accommodate your requirement.
If your wearable becomes damaged, we can repair it and make it as good as new. Please complete the Contact Us form with your order number, informing us when you purchased the product and the repair required. If the product is under guarantee we will repair and return the wearable to you at no cost. If the wearable is not covered by the guarantee we will provide a repairs quote for your approval to proceed.
Due to the nature of contactless payment jewellery, returns and exchanges can only take place where the contactless payment chip inside the jewellery hasn’t been activated. If you haven’t activated your jewellery then you can return the unwanted item. See the Returns and Refund Policy section below for full details. If you want to exchange an unregistered piece of jewellery then it is simpler to return the jewellery for a refund and reorder the new wearable that you require.

QUALITY AND GUARANTEE
At K-pay we are committed to make sure our customers have a great experience and guarantee against defects in materials and workmanship. If you believe there is a defect in the materials and workmanship with your piece of K-pay jewellery, we suggest that you return the item to the place of purchase for a resolution (either repair or replace the item). For your own security, we would like to point out that defective jewellery should be returned by a ‘signed for’ postal service. We are unable to assume liability for damage, loss or theft during transport.
K-pay jewellery is made from multiple components including metals, ceramic, resin, crystals and leather to name a few. To ensure your jewellery stays looking its best, we recommend the following:
– Apply perfume and cosmetics prior to putting on your jewellery;
– Avoid contact with household cleaning products and chemicals including bleach, as they may cause silver to stain and can discolour other elements;
– To clean each piece of jewellery wipe with a soft cloth;
– When storing, for protection and to avoid scratching, it is advisable to wrap each of your pieces of jewellery separately in a soft cloth, acid-free tissue or plastic bag and keep in a clean, dry location like a jewellery box;
– It is not advised for your jewellery to be immersed in water. Salt water will damage the jewellery as will certain chemicals that are found in environments like hot tubs and certain filtration systems;
– Do not expose leather to water;
– Remove jewellery where it is likely to be damaged, such as manual activities i.e. gardening and DIY.
Every piece of K-pay jewellery is guaranteed for 12 months, (with the exception of the leather strap which is guaranteed for 6 months) from the original date of purchase, (under normal conditions of wear and tear). Please retain your receipt or pass it on to the gift recipient as the original proof of purchase is the warranty. If a receipt is not available a credit card or bank statement will suffice. This does not affect your statutory rights.
The warranty offered on K-pay jewellery does not affect your legal rights and is provided in addition to those rights.
