▪ 14in/36cm - Best for children and young adults.

𝙐𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙬𝙚𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙄𝙩𝙚𝙢𝙨: We are happy to hallmark any items below this weight, but there will be an extra charge of £20 for doing so as this will not have been factored into our pricing for that item as it isn't required as standard.
𝙋𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝘿𝙞𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙨: Although we try our hardest to show you an accurate representation of what you will receive - there may be small differences as each item is made to order and not mass produced. Please be aware that monitors may also show colour differences. All Items will be accurately described in the listing information.
For more information, please see our blog post - https://www.songsofinkandsteel.com/post/537276227386
𝙂𝙚𝙢𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨: All gemstones that we use are responsibly sourced and always genuine unless otherwise stated.

𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙚𝙙 𝙊𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨: We engrave our pieces to create bespoke items especially for you. Although we are always happy to try and help if we have made an error or if the item is faulty, we regret we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges on personalised orders. This includes (but is not limited to) orders where the personalisation can be separated from the main piece such as bracelets or pendant sets.
𝙄𝙩𝙚𝙢𝙨 𝙒𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣: For us to accept a return or an exchange on a non-personalised item, the label attached to your item needs to still be attached to your piece. Do not remove this label unless you are completely happy and want it to live with you forever. This is to confirm that the item has not been used or worn for hygiene reasons.
𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙤 𝙍𝙚𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙣 𝙤𝙧 𝙀𝙭𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚: Just send us a message within 14 days of receipt and we will give you full instructions. We will not accept a return or an exchange that has not been authorised or any that were not signed for within the previous 14 days.

𝙈𝙖𝙣𝙪𝙛𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙖𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙨: Types of fault that we would consider a manufacturing fault would include items that are broken at the solder join, or have a faulty clasp that does not open and close as it should.
𝘾𝙝𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝘽𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙠𝙨: We only replace chains that have a faulty clasp (for example, the spring ring or lobster claw at the end). This is deemed as a manufacturing fault as the spring rings are designed to last for over 2000 uses (opening and closing) before they begin to seize or the spring stops working. This should be more than enough usage to see people through average wear. If left unattended, the spring rings may tarnish, but should still function as intended. If a chain breaks elsewhere, this is the result of some sort of pressure or force. These sort of chain breaks are usually down to accidental pressure - whether that is due to being caught on a button or zip or finger, or simply because the pendant on it was too heavy for it to be supported by this type of chain over a long term. It is completely accidental, but it is not a fault as we do not replace chains broken through accidental damage.
𝙏𝙖𝙧𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙝: As tarnish is not a manufacturing fault, a refund or an exchange will not be provided. Tarnish is the one thing that no-one likes to talk about, but it really does happen to everyone. Over the years, we’ve been asked many times “will my sterling silver jewellery tarnish?”. In short, yes. The good news is that you can prevent the tarnishing from occurring, remove it if it does occur and that the tarnishing, or oxidation process, in no way indicates poor quality jewellery or a manufacturing fault. For more information, please visit - https://www.songsofinkandsteel.com/post/415437375456
𝙎𝙩𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙇𝙤𝙨𝙨: This will be assessed on a case by case basis to ascertain if the stone came loose through general wear and tear or through a manufacturing fault. It is recommended that you visit your local jeweller each year for a clean and polish, and to have all stones and settings checked to ensure they are secure and have not loosened due to accidental damage or wear and tear.

We want to bring you offers and promotions that are most relevant to your interests at particular times. To help us form a better, overall understanding of you as a customer, we combine your personal data, for example your ordering history. For this purpose, we also combine the data that we collect directly from you with data that we obtain from third parties to whom you have given your consent to pass that data onto us – such as Companies House
How we protect your personal data
We know how much data security matters to all our customers. With this in mind we will treat your data with the utmost care and take all appropriate steps to protect it. We secure access to all transactional areas of our websites and apps using ‘https’ technology.
Access to your personal data is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as payment card information) is secured by SSL encryption.
How long will we keep your personal data?
Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we’ll only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that retention period, your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised,
for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.
Some examples of customer data retention periods:
Orders - When you place an order, we’ll keep the personal data you give us for seven years so we can comply with our legal and contractual obligations.
Who do we share your personal data with?
We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties.For example, delivery couriers, for fraud management, to handle complaints, to help us personalise our offers to you and so on.
Here’s the policy we apply to those organisations to keep your data safe and protect your privacy:
We provide only the information they need to perform their specific services.They may only use your data for the exact purposes we specify in our contract with them.We work closely with them to ensure that your privacy is respected and protected at all times. If we stop using their services, any of your data held by them will either be deleted or

We may also be required to disclose your personal data to the police or other enforcement, regulatory or Government body, in your country of origin or elsewhere, upon a valid request to do so. These requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Where your personal data may be processed:
International orders - If you are based outside the UK and place an order with us, we will transfer the personal data that we collect from you to the UK.
Protecting your data outside the EEA - The EEA includes all EU Member countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the EEA. For example, this might be required in order to fulfil your order, process your payment details or provide support services. If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times. If you wish for more information about these contracts, please contact our Customer Service Team.
Any transfer of your personal data will follow applicable laws and we will treat the information under the guiding principles of this Privacy Notice.
What are your rights over your personal data
You have the right to request:
Access to the personal data we hold about you, free of charge in most cases.
The correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
For example, when you withdraw consent, or object and we have no legitimate overriding interest, or once the purpose for which we hold the data has come to an end (such as the end of a warranty).
That we stop using your personal data for direct marketing (either through specific channels, or all channels).
That we stop any consent-based processing of your personal data after you withdraw that consent.
Review by a staff member of any decision made based solely on automatic processing of your data (i.e. where no human has yet reviewed the outcome and criteria for the decision).
You have the right to request a copy of any information about you that Songs of Ink and Steel holds at any time, and also to have that information corrected if it is inaccurate. To ask for your information, please contact our Customer Service Team. If we choose not to action your request, we will explain to you the reasons for our refusal.
Your right to withdraw consent
Whenever you have given us your consent to use your personal data, you have the right to change your mind at any time and withdraw that consent, by doing so Songs of Ink and Steel will be unable to continue trading with you.
Where we rely on our legitimate interest
In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.
You have the right to stop the use of your personal data for direct marketing activity through all channels, or selected channels. We must always comply with your request.
Checking your identity
To protect the confidentiality of your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice. If you have authorised a third party to submit a request on your behalf, we will ask them to prove they have your permission to act.

Contacting the Regulator
If you feel that your data has not been handled correctly, or you are unhappy with our response to any requests you have made to us regarding the use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
You can contact them by calling 0303 123 1113.
Your jewellery will arrive in a branded box with a white foam inner as standard along with a jewellery care card suitable for gift giving straightaway.
Tarnish during transit is unlikely due to careful packaging. For long lasting tarnish protection for your jewellery after it arrives, we highly recommend purchasing our tarnish resistant coating and polishing cloth as this is easily remedied with a quick polish before wear.
We recommend reading our blog post entitled 'Ring Sizing - How to get it right on your first try' which can be found here: www.songsofinkandsteel.com/post/419532562026
We recommend always getting sized by a jeweller for the larger width rings (10mm+) as these need to be measured slightly differently than a standard ring. We are happy to exchange any ring that doesn't fit you quite right - even if you have opted for a personalised disc, but we won't be able to offer a refund on personalised items or sets.
If there is any transit damage to the goods, shortages or incorrect goods, it is your responsibility to let me know within 3 days of receipt. (All goods are sent using a tracked service, so if someone is signing for the goods on your behalf, please remember that this policy will still apply).
Any faulty/damaged items must be reported including photographic evidence and either a full refund or an exchange will be provided upon return. I do not accept any responsibility for items not received by me so please use a tracked service.
We engrave our pieces to create bespoke items especially for you. Although we are always happy to try and help if something is unsuitable, we regret we are unable to offer refunds on personalised orders.
For us to accept a return or an exchange on a non-personalised item, the white label attached to your item needs to be unbroken so please do not remove this unless you are completely happy and want it to live with you forever! Just send us a message and we will give you your returns code. Your item needs to be in the post back to us within 14 days of you signing for this package. If you send your item back after 14 days of receipt, we will not be able to accept it and it will be returned to the address it was sent to originally.
We include invoices with all purchases. This invoice does include full price details. If you are sending a gift directly to your recipient and you do not wish for them to see prices, you can mark your purchase as a gift. This will then generate a gift invoice with message that we can include in with your package for no extra cost.
We are happy to gift wrap your gift for you too - just choose this option at the checkout.
As all items are made by hand, we need time to make your items. The time we need varies, and you can find this information on their individual listings.
If you pay for upgraded postage, this does not change the time it takes us to make your item as we work on all orders in the order that they have been received.
So, for example, two people buy the same item on the same day. The item takes 5 business days to make. Person 1 chooses standard second class postage. Person 2 chooses next day delivery. Their items will be taken to the post office on the same day (as the items take the same amount of time to make) but person 1's item is posted second class, while person 2 gets theirs posted next day delivery.
In the unlikely and unfortunate case your item should be faulty, you are entitled to a refund or repair within 6 months of receiving the item, but only if the fault was due to a flaw within the way the piece was initially made and not if it is damaged from misuse or wear and tear.
Fair wear and tear is not a fault and you have no right to return, refund or exchange if a problem arises because of failure to follow any care instructions you were given on purchase as this will fall under misuse. Please do not assume that because other items of jewellery that you may own tolerate a level of wear and tear that all items can be treated the same.
We conform to all UK regulations in respect to Hallmarking with the Assay office.
This means that we hallmark all of our items. The only exceptions are items which fall beneath the specified weight thresholds which are 1 gram for gold, 7.78 grams for silver, 0.5 grams for platinum and 1 gram for palladium.
We are happy to hallmark any items below this weight, but there will be an extra charge of £20 for doing so as this will not have been factored into our pricing for that item as it isn't required as standard.
As standard your parcels are shipped with Royal Mail Second Class for delivery within 1 to 5 working days in the UK, 6-8 working days in the EU and 10-15 working days internationally.
Keep in mind that these dates are from the date it’s shipped and not the date the order was placed.
Unfortunately, we don’t deliver your parcels ourselves so we can’t guarantee these times, and if your order hasn’t arrived when expected then it’s likely due to delays with Royal Mail. Please leave up to 10 working days from dispatch in the UK, and 28 working days in the EU and internationally before contacting us for a replacement (though after this time has passed we’ll issue a replacement and do everything we can to track down the missing parcel).
