How does pre-order work?
Our pre-order service allows you to purchase jewellery before it has arrived in our boutique. The following conditions apply for pre-orders:
Delivery: We aim to dispatch pre-ordered jewellery on or before the stated dispatch date. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you with the intended dispatch date. By pre-ordering you are securing your intended dispatch date, the site may reflect a new later date if demand increases but your date will not be affected. If the expected dispatch date experiences a delay of more than one week we will contact you with the new expected dispatch date, you may cancel the order if the revised date is not suitable. An automated dispatch e-mail will be sent to you when the goods are dispatched and a link will be provided to track the item.
Payment: Your card will be pre-authorised (*) for the value of the item. For UK orders, your card will not be debited until the item is ready to be dispatched. If your pre-authorisation has expired we will contact you to re-authorise the card before dispatch.
Multiple items order: If your order contains jewellery that is both in stock and on pre-order we will dispatch the available pieces and debit your card only for these pieces. When the jewellery on pre-order is ready for dispatch we will contact you to re-confirm your card details. You will be sent a separate dispatch confirmation e-mail when your pre-ordered jewellery is dispatched.
*Pre-authorisation – this is the ring-fencing of funds from your credit card limit. The funds are not debited but by ring fencing them it may prevent you from using this available credit for another purchase. Typically a pre-authorisation may last for a maximum of 21 days and expires once the goods are dispatched and the card is debited.

What is vermeil?
Vermeil is a combination of Sterling Silver with a layer of gold on top. To be considered vermeil, the gold must be at least 9 carat and be at least 1.5 micrometres thick.
Are Astley Clarke diamonds from traceable sources?
We adhere to the Kimberley Process and are committed to sourcing our diamonds in the most ethical and environmentally responsible manner.
The Kimberley Process, adopted in 2002, regulates 99% of the rough diamond trade worldwide, through a system of import/export controls that prevents conflict diamonds from entering the legitimate supply chain. Key industry representatives, including JA, worked with governments and human rights groups (often called non-governmental organizations, or NGOs) around the world to bring about this solution to the conflict diamond problem. KP is supported and mandated by the United Nations. Today, 69 participating nations and the worldwide diamond industry uphold KP regulations, along with help from NGOs.
How KP Works:
Each of the KP countries is legally bound to export all shipments of rough diamonds in a tamper-resistant, sealed container, along with a government-validated Kimberley Process certificate that includes a list of its contents. No uncertified shipments of rough diamonds are permitted to enter any KP country.
