If you have any problems with your Order, please call us Toll Free on 0800 2000 1122.
- We will then send you a confirmatory email to acknowledge that we have received your Order. This is sent out automatically by us to the email address you register with us. Please note that this does not mean that your Order has been accepted. Your Order constitutes an offer by you to buy the Product(s) at the price set out in the Order.
- All Orders are subject to acceptance by us. We are not obliged to accept your Order and may, at our discretion, decline to accept your Order. You do, however, acknowledge that by clicking on the 'Confirm Purchase and Pay' button, you enter into an obligation to pay for the Product(s) in the event your Order is accepted by us.
- After sending you the acknowledgment email we will check to make sure we are able to fulfil your Order. Where we accept your Order, we will confirm such Order by sending you a second email ("Dispatch Email") confirming your Order, confirming dispatch of the Product(s) to the delivery address you have requested and giving you estimated timescales for delivery. This is sent out automatically by us to the email address you register with us. At this point we will process the payment details you have given to us to take payment for your Order.
- By sending you the Dispatch Email and thereby confirming and accepting your Order, the Contract between us ("Contract") is formed. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with Products that are in conformity with the Contract.
- The Contract will relate only to those Product(s) whose dispatch has been confirmed in the Dispatch Email. We will not be obliged to supply any other Product(s) which may have formed part of your Order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Email.
- You should check the confirmation and the Dispatch Email for accuracy and let us know immediately if there are any errors. Your Order will be accepted by us when we send the second email to you confirming your Order and dispatch of the Product(s) and at this point the contract between us (“Contract”) is formed. After entering into the Contract, we will be under a legal duty to supply you with Products that are in conformity with the Contract.
- If there are any problems with your Order, you will be contacted by a representative from Tiffany & Co.
Prices and delivery costs are liable to change at any time, but changes will not affect Orders which we have already confirmed in a Dispatch Email.
Prices are checked regularly. However, if we find the price has changed or that there has been a pricing error when we receive your Order we will contact you and ask if you wish to proceed at the correct price. If you confirm that you do wish to proceed, please remember that we will still not be under an obligation to supply the Product(s) until we have sent you the Dispatch Email confirming your Order.
The prices for the Products indicated on our Website at checkout include all taxes, including VAT (BTW/TVA), which may be payable in respect of the Product(s) but excludes the delivery costs and other possible costs that might be due which will be automatically added to the total amount due when you view your items in your Shopping Bag.
All payments must be made at the time of dispatch of the Product(s) to you. Payment for all Product(s) must be by credit or debit card. We accept payment with Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Maestro cards. If we are unable to accept your Order for any reason then we will, at our option, either reject your debit or credit card or refund any money paid by you in respect of that Order. We will not dispatch the Product(s) until we receive payment in full. Please note, it is possible that your card issuer may charge you an online handling fee or processing fee. We are not responsible for this.
For payment by card, all credit and debit cardholders may be subject to authorisation and authentication. If the issuer of your payment card or our service provider refuses to, or does not for any reason authorise or validate the payment, we will not be liable in these circumstances for any delay or non-delivery in respect of the Product(s) which you have ordered as a result.
By providing the relevant information to us, you specifically authorise us to transmit or to obtain information about you from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your name, address, telephone number, debit or credit card details or credit reports, to authenticate your identity and delivery address for the Product(s), validate your payment card and obtain authorisations for your payments for Product(s).
We aim to deliver Product(s) to you, to the delivery address you have requested in your Order within the time set out in our Dispatch Email but we cannot give an exact delivery date.
If we have not delivered the Product(s) within 30 days of the Contract or any other date that we have agreed with you then you may cancel the Contract and we will refund any money paid by you.

If you find a defect or damage you must tell us as soon as possible and we will arrange for their return to our Customer Service Centre, at no cost to you.

Additionally the detailing (such as colour, pattern and texture, etc.) you see on-screen will depend on your monitor and, as such, may not exactly reflect the actual detailing of a Product when you receive it.
