TERMS AND CONDITIONS     

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE 
                  All users of my site must agree that access to and use of this site are subject to the following terms and conditions and other applicable law.  If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, do not use this site http://www.TDJEWELS.COM  or http://www.THOMAS DOUGLAS JEWELERS.COM

ABOUT MY JEWELRY
                   If Not specified as New, the jewelry is Estate (Used) Pre-loved and priced to re-love. I have made Estate Jewelry, along with Custom Designed Jewelry the main portion of my jewelry sales in the store for over 36 years. I offer exceptional values on these items at far less than a comparable newly produced item would sell for. In many cases you simply cannot find these pieces currently manufactured today unless you have them custom designed. 

10 DAY INTERNET RETURN POLICY
                   Your satisfaction is MY first concern so if for any reason you’re not satisfied with your internet purchase, you can return any unused item without custom engraving, sizing or any kind of alterations (Not Consignment Jewelry see Policy below), in its original new or refurbished condition within 10 days from the date of shipment for a refund or exchange. The reason for this brief return window is because we rarely have more than one of an item and it is very detrimental to our business if an item is out of the store any longer than that. This is a longer return period than offered if the item were purchased at the physical location of the store.  Unfortunately we cannot accept returns on special order items which include jewelry sized or altered at your request or custom designed items made at your request. There are Excellent pictures of the Actual Item as well as in-depth descriptions on the product page. Please note that the above return policy applies to Internet purchases only. If there is any damage to your purchase, you must notify us by e-mailing at ThomasDouglasJewelers@gmail.com within 24 hours after receipt of your merchandise.

CONSIGNMENT JEWELRY RETURN POLICY
                   This is merchandise that I do not own and am selling for my customers. These items will be clearly marked or labeled as Consignment in the product description page. These items are almost always sold on a FINAL SALE basis in the store and on the internet. In most instances this jewelry is offered at or near wholesale prices and in some instances for less than we could make or reproduce these items at current precious metal or gemstone prices. There are Excellent pictures of the Actual Item as well as in-depth descriptions on the product page. These will be some of the BEST VALUES AVAILABLE ON THE SITE. Please call 727-343-5865 or email at ThomasDouglasJewelers@gmail.com with any questions.

RETURN INSTRUCTIONS
                   When we receive your return and it is accepted, your refund on your purchase will be processed in a matter of days. Upon receiving your return, the item will be reviewed by our Quality Control Department. Please note that items showing signs of wear or those that have been engraved, altered, resized, or damaged in any way cannot be accepted for return. Returns without a receipt or items that are improperly packaged or uninsured will be refused for receipt.  Be sure to include all packaging and collateral material, including diamond certificates. A $250 fee will be charged if the diamond certificate is not returned. Ship your return item via the US Postal Service Registered Mail, insured for the total value of your purchase. Be sure to request a return receipt for confirmation that your shipment has reached us.
