Delivery & Returns Information


Items ordered will be posted out on the next working day via Special Delivery if they are in stock. If an item has to be made to a certain size or is not in stock it can take longer.


UK delivery is by Royal Mail ‘Special Delivery’ Service, this service is next day delivery before 1pm and requires a signature for delivery. Please ensure you choose a delivery address where someone will be present to sign for the package.


Delivery within the EU is delivered by the Royal Mail 'International Signed For' service. Delivery is normally within 5-7 working days of despatch and parcels need to be signed for. Please state a delivery address where someone will be present at the time of delivery.


Delivery outside of the UK and EU is by Royal Mail 'International Signed For' service. Delivery is usually within 7-10 days and a signature will be required at the point of delivery.

Please note, duties and taxes incurred at the point of entry to the destination country are the responsibility of the customer.


All orders are put in our own Jewel Thief boxes and tied with a black satin ribbon.


If your delivery has been delayed, then please contact us and we will provide you with the tracking number to enable you to chase it up with the Royal Mail. We will try and help you to track the delivery if you prefer. We cannot refund or replace lost items until 20 working days after the date of dispatch (30 days for international items) – unfortunately this is due to Royal Mail’s policy - it is only then when the Royal Mail classes items as being lost.

International delivery - When items are sent to another country, your parcel is often handled by more than one postal service. Unfortunately that means delivery problems are more likely. When we send a parcel abroad, the actual delivery of the item will be the responsibility of the postal service in the country the items are going to. Delays can often be caused by customs checks, which can sometimes take up to 1-2 weeks.

Items not received but tracked as being delivered - This frequently happens when items are delivered to places of work. In some cases, your item might have been delivered to a post room or colleague within your company and someone else will have signed for it. In these cases for a small charge, you can request a proof of delivery certificate from the Royal Mail ( by filling in a signature request form. Please note that we do not refund or replace items that are tracked as being delivered. For this reason, we always recommend that you get items delivered to your home address.

This does not affect your statutory rights.

If your jewellery develops a fault after delivery please email for further info and advice.

Faulty Items have to be returned to Jewel Thief Brighton Ltd with proof of purchase and will be inspected to identify the manufacturing fault. In most cases this means we will return your item to the designer for a further opinion. Where possible items may be repaired, but only where such items are deemed faulty or repairable.

Should the jewellery deemed to have developed a fault due to normal wear and tear or accidental damage you may be charged for the repair.
