Terms & Conditions
Welcome to the LUXIEE website! These terms and conditions apply to this LUXIEE website which is accessible at www.luxiee.com, as well as all associated websites linked to the Website created by LUXIEE, its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively "the Website"). By visiting or using this Website, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by, these terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”).
These Terms and Conditions govern your use of and each and every purchase from the LUXIEE Website and it constitutes an agreement between you and LUXIEE. LUXIEE reserves the right to modify any of these Terms and Conditions or any of its policies or guidelines at any time, and in its sole discretion. These modifications will be effective immediately upon its posting on the Website.
Continuing the use of the Website after these modifications is conclusive evidence your acceptance of the changes to the Terms and Conditions. As such, you should review the Terms and Conditions whenever you visit the Website, as the changes will affect you from time to time. Should you disagree with any of our modifications, you are advised to stop using the Website immediately.
II. Our Business
We may not be the direct seller of the product to you and you should check the details on the Website carefully before agreeing to the purchase. Where the Website lists us as the direct seller, your agreement to purchase is with us, but if the Website lists the direct seller as another party, your purchase agreement is with them.
To avoid any doubt, the terms of your purchase with the seller is the same as the Terms and Conditions, which the seller agrees to be bound by.
However, to set your mind at ease, we undertake the following three important responsibilities towards you when you make a purchase from a third party seller on the Website. First, we will not list the products of any seller unless we know them to be a reputable supplier in the market. Second, we will perform reasonable checks on their products before releasing the item to you, either directly or through courier, and releasing payment to them any payment which you made to us. Third, we will take reasonable efforts to help to resolve differences fairly between you and the seller.
If you choose to purchase products, which list us as the direct seller, we would be the contracting party with you, subject to the Terms and Conditions.
III. Our Services
LUXIEE offers you a unique business proposition – that is to purchase high value, quality jewellery products from sellers who are close to the source of the product. This gives you the opportunity to buy products without paying for the overheads of retailers. It is a business model that endeavours to bring you closer to a part of the value chain which you would not normally have access to.
However, you should be aware that should you engage in such a purchase, you would not be contracting with LUXIEE but directly with the seller. The sellers listed on the Website are known to us as a reputable seller of such products in the market, and we have performed reasonable checks of the product before releasing the same to you.
In the event of any dispute, we can only assist in resolving the dispute between the parties, but we will not undertake any responsibility towards you beyond what we have promised in the Terms and Conditions.
IV. Product Availability And Pricing
The products displayed on the Website are available to the best of our knowledge. It is possible that it may be out-of-stock or on back-order. You are encouraged to reach out to us at email@example.com so we can confirm with you of its availability, as well as other details such as its currently location and the estimated time of delivery. It is nonetheless possible that despite our best efforts, that the item is no longer available before we could update the Website. Should this occur, we shall contact you to discuss your options.
All data, including prices, on the Website are subject to errors due to system or typographical failures. LUXIEE strives to avoid such errors, but we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy at all times. We reserve the right to correct any and all errors as and when we find them, and we are not obliged to honour incorrectly stated prices. If the listed price of an item is lower than its actual price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping the product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation. If the order has been shipped, you agree to either return the product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices. Vice versa, if the listed price is actually higher than the actual price and we may at our discretion return you the difference.
The prices indicated on the Website are final and not open to negotiation. They are also subject to change without notice.
V. Information On The Website
LUXIEE strives to ensure the Website, including the product catalogue, is as accurate and complete as possible. To enable you to view the products in great detail, some products may be presented with inconsistencies pertaining to the colour and size. In compliance with industry standards, the carat total weight of all products may vary 0.05 carats from the stated weight in the Website.
The Website provides the measurement of products based on manufacturing specifications. Slight tolerances may be accounted for based on finishing during the manufacturing process. Width tolerance on machine made wedding bands of 0.20mm is acceptable. Cast manufactured rings could have a slightly higher variation. For gemstone and pearl measurements, a tolerance of 0.25mm is allowed.
For diamond jewellery set with multiple diamonds, we provide the minimum total carat weight for the piece. Colour and clarity grades are expressed as either a minimum or an average depending on the number of diamonds. If stated as a minimum, all diamonds within the piece are at or above the stated quality. If expressed as an average, collectively the quality is equal to or exceeds the grade stated.
VI. Diamond Certificates
When you order a loose diamond, we will either deliver in person at our office or ship it to you at your choice, with the accompanying diamond grading report (also called a diamond certificate). These grading reports are detailed documents produced by diamond grading experts at one of two highly-respected diamond laboratories. It is very expensive to replace a diamond grading report. You are advised to keep your diamond grading report safely, as we require each diamond grading report to be included with any returned diamond. If you do not include the diamond grading report with your return, you will be charged a replacement fee of US$500 (or equivalent amount in other currencies), which we will deduct from the amount returnable to you.
VII. Comparison Buying
Unless the seller agrees, loose diamonds cannot be returned.
As for products sold by us, we do not tolerate comparison buying. This refers to the act of buying several items for comparison purposes, eventually keeping only one item and returning the remainder, as this results in unnecessary restocking and adds unnecessary costs for inventory overhead. Should you need to understand the quality of your intended purchase, please firstname.lastname@example.org so we can advise you better.
