Pricing and Payment Disclaimer
All items offered for purchase from Anchor Boutique through our website or other sources are made to order for each client (unless otherwise indicated). While prices shown for each item are the retail purchase value of said item, other factors may influence the final cost of said item. Client requests for upgraded materials, add-on accessories, or modifications such as ring size far outside the original design's parameters and others, beyond the scope of the item's description are considered special orders and may result in a higher final price. Our materials are of the finest available quality at the time of each and every order and in general our metal weights and purities are much higher then the mass-market average, as it our highly skilled design and traditional goldsmithing labor. As such, all prices shown on our website are to be considered estimated prices only.
While we strive to provide accurate pricing, there are fluctuations in the global market that is simply beyond our control, for better or worse. In the event that a commodity material (such as precious metal) makes a drastic downward fluctuation, the final price of your jewelry purchase may drop, depending on the fluctuation in terms of the manufacturing process (in effect, causing our production cost to drastically drop, thereby lowering the final price). In the event of a drastic enough drop in materials cost, Anchor Boutique may at its sole discretion offer a refund or a credit towards a future purchase. In the event of a reimbursement, Anchor Boutique has discretion to offer said monies without regard to payment method which may include check, money order, non-specific or specific non-Anchor Boutique gift card, or cash, depending on location of client.
Should said fluctuations happen upwardly, Anchor Boutique will cover the difference up to 20% of the total retail value of the item ordered. In the case of an unprecedented or unforeseeable and/or substantial upswing in any material or process required for production, Anchor Boutique may at its sole discretion halt work on any given piece until an agreement for increased budget is reached between Anchor Boutique and the client. In the event a conclusion arises that does not continue the production, Anchor Boutique will refund the monies used to purchase said item, less any already incurred non-recoverable fees, including, but not limited to, design, shipping, processing fees, or other overhead already utilized. Anchor Boutique would like to stress how rare these situations are and estimates a >1/1000 occurrence of these situations arising.
Manufacturing Lead Time Disclaimer
From the point of payment, any made-to-order item, of which the bulk of the Anchor Boutique website is comprised, will require a 2-8 week lead time for the sourcing of any gems already not in Anchor Boutique’s possession, manufacturing, quality control, and shipping times. Unaccounted for, or unforeseen, delays may occur due to communication errors, shipping errors, or degree of difficulty in the sourcing of components, materials, and complexity of required craftsmanship. Anchor Boutique will, at your request, strive to make every possible update to you in the form you request during certain milestones of production and will always inform you of any substantial delays. Anchor Boutique will always confirm shipping information and arrival times of your jewelry to ensure it is delivered safely. Anchor Boutique ships through national and international companies that are not under our control (i.e. FedEx or UPS), and while we make every effort to safely pack and deliver your item to the carrier, any damage or lost items as a result of shipping are the burden of the carrier, not Anchor Boutique Jewelry, though we will at request strive to provide any information you may require to recover any damages from said carrier, and Anchor Boutique will repair any item damaged by shipping (if possible) at a reduced rate to make your piece like new again.
Appearance and Substitutions Disclaimer
Due to monitor settings, monitor pixel definitions, limitations of desktop scanners, digital photography, and variations of batched metal blends and/or natural gemstone variations, we cannot guarantee that the colors you see on your screen as a 100% exact color of the product. Screen images are intended as a guide only and should not be regarded as absolutely correct. All colors are approximations of actual colors. Items displayed by Anchor Boutique in any medium, or on any website, are respective of the final product only.
Our gems (unless specifically indicated) are natural in composition, but may be treated by man to improve their durability, color, and/or overall appearance. The variance from one gem to the next, even when cut from the same crystal, is part of the natural beauty of mined gemstones and is to be expected. Metal finishes, appearance of surface, and setting may vary slightly from piece to piece, and from images displayed online as our fine jewelry is finished by human hands. Though we strive to maintain a quality of manufacture that reproduces each item as precisely as possible, the natural minute variations in final appearance as compared to the overall appearance are to be expected and celebrated as evidence of the human touch.
Availability of certain materials, such as, but not limited to, metal blends and gemstones, (species variety treatment and hue) are based entirely on the availability within the world gem and jewelry industry, and as such we are subject the potential unavailability of certain materials due to political unrest, rarity, import restriction, and wild price fluctuation. In the event that a substitution must be made to any item ordered, you are assured that said substitution shall not drastically change the overall appearance of the finished jewelry, and that said component substitution shall be of equal, or greater, value then the original component. In the event that this is not possible or feasible, you will be notified of any unavailable components for consent to substitute as necessary or to modify the design/materials of said piece. In the event that a modification is required that is notably more valuable then the original purchase due to your request, you agree to be invoiced and to compensate for the additional value before work may continue. Other then this rare circumstance (or clients whim), no additional price shall be applied to the cost of any piece purchased.
We strive to provide accurate information on our website. However, errors (regardless of fault) may appear in the form of omissions, inaccuracies relating to pricing or availability, or incomplete/missing/substituted information including, but not limited to, item descriptions, content of said descriptions, pricing, images (whether misplaced, omitted, outmoded, or incorrect). Anchor Boutique reserves the right to correct omissions, errors or inaccuracies at any time, including after an order has been placed with no express warranty of retroactive correction as is our discretion. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to your viewing or shopping experience with Anchor Boutique as any inaccuracies shown or omitted are not our intent.
