OUR RETURN AND REFUND POLICY - to be read in conjunction with our Warranty Guidelines 

We want our clients to love their Village Goldsmith jewellery. For in store purchases, we offer clients an exchange or store credit if the piece is returned within 14 days of purchase. As online clients are unable to try a piece on, we offer refunds, exchanges or store credit for online purchases if returned within 14 days of receipt. All returns must be in original, unworn condition with tags intact and returned with all of their original packaging and documentation. Custom and engraved items are not eligible for return. In the rare event of a sale, all sales will be final and returns won't be accepted in that instance. Please see additional conditions below.

Jewellery Purchased In Store

We offer an exchange or store credit for items or gifts bought in store that are returned within 14 days of purchase, that have not been worn and have the original tag still intact. Returns will be accepted at the discretion of The Village Goldsmith and are subject to a quality assurance check. Any items that inspection shows have signs of wear or that have been damaged and/or resized and/or altered by a third party will not be accepted for return or exchange. Please note any returns accepted are eligible for an exchange or store credit only – we do not issue refunds. 

Jewellery Purchased Online

As online clients are unable to try a piece on before purchasing, we offer a refund, exchange or store credit on unworn items if returned within 14 days of receipt. Items are subject to a quality assurance check prior to the refund being issued to confirm it has not been altered or worn. Original tags must be intact and return postage is the client’s responsibility. We offer free shipping back to the client on exchanges within New Zealand.

Bespoke and Custom Items

We are unable to offer a return, exchange or refund for pieces that are customised whether purchased online or in store - this includes engraved and custom made items.

Manufacturing Defects

The Village Goldsmith stands behind our quality and craftsmanship. For any piece purchased in store or online that has a manufacturing defect we will offer an exchange. If this is not possible, we will offer a refund. The item must be returned to The Village Goldsmith Jewellers so the quality assurance team can assess any defect before an exchange is offered. The jewellery must not have been altered by another jeweller or third party.
