Do you have a shop or a showroom where I can come and view your products?
Sorry, we don't have a shop or showroom, we only sell our products online.

Do you have a catalogue that you can send me?
No, we don't produce a paper catalogue, because we are constantly adding new items to the website and it would soon be out of date. This also helps to keep our costs down and we can pass these savings on to our customers.

Do we ship overseas?
Yes, we are happy to accept orders from outside the UK, but unfortunately, we are unable to accept orders from the USA, Canada or Russia.

What payment methods do you accept?
We accept payment via Paypal. If you do not have a Paypal account, we also accept all major credit cards directly using Paypal as our secure payment processor.

How much do you charge for postage and packing/shipping?

UK postage and packing charges are as follows:

Orders up to £29.99 - £1.99
Order over £30 - FREE

International shipping charges are based on weight and will be shown at checkout. As a guide, you can buy up to 80g of goods for the following shipping costs:

When will my order be delivered?
We usually send your order within 1 working day from receiving your cleared payment. If we are very busy, it may take an extra day.  Working days are classified as Monday - Friday.

Exact delivery times depend on destination and your chosen delivery method. For UK deliveries by First Class post, the estimated delivery time is 1-2 working days, however it can sometimes take slightly longer.

I would like more information on buying cabochons please
The price shown is for a single cabochon stone unless otherwise stated. The photograph shows a selection of stones to illustrate the natural variations which can be found in each gemstone. All our cabochons have a flat back.

I would like to buy a colour that you don't stock.  Is it possible to order it for me?
It depends.  If we are just about to make an order at the wholesalers, we might consider it!  It's certainly worth asking.
