Terms & Conditions
This is the official website for Rashmi Ray jewellery, based in London, United Kingdom. The website is available for your personal, non-commercial use only and is subject to these Terms and Conditions. Using this website means you accept these terms, which we may update from time to time without notice. Continued use of the site will mean that you accept the updated terms.
1. Intellectual property
All content on this website, including the use of the name Rashmi Ray in this creative context, is the sole property of Velvet Mode Ltd. You are permitted to share information and images from the site only if RashmiRay.com is clearly displayed beside the material during promotion. You are not entitled to copy, reproduce or otherwise commercially exploit any material from this website.
All prices on the website exclude VAT.
Our items are often one of a kind and available in one size. They can sometimes be made to order and this can take up to 15 weeks.
Although we try our very best to make all descriptions and images as accurate as possible, images are often not shown to scale and colours may appear differently according to the settings on your screen.
Each piece is priced individually and the prices on this website are shown without VAT to assist those who can export (see below). Once a piece is sold it may not be possible to remake it at the same price.
3. Duties & Taxes
All prices on the site exclude UK VAT. You can shop online in Sterling only (£).
International orders are shipped on a DDU (Delivery Duties Unpaid) basis. This means that any duties and taxes incurred in the country of destination are the responsibility of the customer. If a shipment is refused, we will do what we can to get the customs charges waived and have the shipment returned to Rashmi Ray registered as Velvet Mode Ltd. We cannot guarantee that customs charges can be voided for a refused shipment. In this case, we will deduct the amount from your refund.
Customs charges vary depending on the country of delivery. If you are concerned about incurring high customs charges, we recommend you ask your local customs office about their rates.
Please also note that your shipment/order cannot be classed as personal effects/personal use as your shipment is coming from RashmiRay.com as a business to yourself as a consumer. Therefore, you are responsible for import duties/taxes at your local customs office. Duty and taxes incurred in the country of destination are the responsibility of the customer. When you place your order, you agreed to our terms and conditions of purchase.
Due to customs restrictions, we require the receiver to provide a 10 digit customs registration number (CR number) to Rashmi Ray which must be obtained from Chinese customs. We cannot ship orders to China without the required CR number. You will need to contact your local customs for the CR number. Your local customs will return your shipment to us if you cannot provide your personal customs registration number. Your ID number is not the CR number that is required by your local customs.
Whilst every care is taken to ensure the information on this site is accurate, there may be mistakes, inaccuracies or other errors in the information on this website. We will endeavour to correct and update our site regularly.
