Terms and Conditions
Use of this website and the purchase of its products and/or services, constitutes your agreement with all policies and terms contained herein.
Caryl Haxworth ~ Charms Of Light owns the copyright to all of the material and content used on this website, including photographs and designs. You may not copy, sell, reproduce, distribute, republish, download, display, post or transmit any part of this website, or its products, without written consent from Caryl Haxworth.
Prices are subject to change at any time without notice. If you have bookmarked a webpage for later use, please refresh the page before placing your order to ensure payment of the current price and that the item is still available. In the case of orders being placed from out-of-date pages, I reserve the right to invoice or refund the customer for the difference, less admin fees.
Payment is accepted by the following methods: ...
- Credit or Debit Card: - I use an SSL Certificate which enables encryption of sensitive information during online transactions. You can be confident that all information given is safe and secure, and I never see your card details.
(Please note: If you are paying with an American Express card, please use the PayPal checkout button in your shopping cart.)
- PayPal Express: - For PayPal account holders, this is a fast and secure way to make your payment by either credit card or directly from your PayPal account.
- Bank Transfer: - For UK based customers only. Items will be held for 3 days only from the date of order and payment must be received within this time, otherwise your order will be cancelled.
Please be advised that when choosing PayPal Express to pay for your order, the correct shipping location must first be chosen. If it is incorrect, you will be charged the difference (plus an administration fee) for the correct shipping costs.
Clear pictures are shown to allow you to see the jewellery and gifts that are available for purchase. In some cases you will receive the exact item shown in the photograph, however if more than one of any item is available, I deem the photographs to be a clear representation of the product.
As with all semi precious gemstones and crystals, there will be slight variations in all the beads used for jewellery products, and in gemstone carvings.
When choosing your healing jewellery or gemstone gift, please take note of the measurements given with the description of each piece. If you require a different size, please contact me with your request, before placing your order. There will be an additional charge for alterations on all wrongly sized jewellery purchases.
Custom Orders / Quotes
Price quotes on custom orders remain valid for 3 days from the date the quote is given. Full payment is required within this time. If payment is not received, after 3 days all pieces put aside for the order will be made available to other customers. A new quote will then be given to cover any costs involved in obtaining new stones/wire etc that may have become out of stock.
A small non-refundable deposit may be required on some custom orders. Where a deposit is taken, once an order has been created to the customers' satisfaction, payment of the balance must be made within 3 days or the item may be added to the website for sale to the public.
My recommendation is that bracelets be at least an inch larger than the size of your wrist. Bracelets made smaller than that are likely to break due to "stress". I am happy to repair and resize for you if problems arise because of this, however a charge will be made for the repair, resizing and return postage. Please note that when requesting a special size, I can not guarantee exact length. Custom sizes come within 0.25 inches of requested size due to variations in stones and designs.
Please note: If you haven't ordered a consultation separately, a gemstone consultation fee will be added to all custom orders that require assistance in finding the right gemstone (or gemstones) to help your situation.
For services purchased via the Charms Of Light website, details and/or session times will be sent by email.
For services scheduled via the Online Booking Service, you will receive a confirmation email once your appointment is booked. Any payment due must be paid a minimum of 5 working days (Mon-Fri) prior to the appointment being held, or at receipt of invoice/emailed payment link - whichever is sooner. Please reschedule your appointment, or contact me as soon as possible, if you are unable to keep to your appointment. Refunds for cancelled appointments with less than 24 hours notice are at my discretion, less the fees charged to me by the payment processing company through which you originally paid.
Once you have purchased a healing service you will be contacted by email. 2 attempts will be made to contact you with regard to the service you have purchased. In the case of a service being purchased and an appointment not confirmed, there will be 2 attempts made to contact you to schedule your session(s). After this time, if there is no reply, your order will be cancelled and payment refunded, less the fees charged to me by the payment processing company through which you originally paid. This excludes Gemstone Consultations and General Advice/Guidance, in which case it will be understood that the purchase was for services rendered via the information on this website.
Everything discussed in a reading or consultation remains completely confidential by both parties. Any information that you are given is not to be repeated or replicated as your own.
Wherever possible, I endeavour to post all healing products within 3 working days - Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) of receiving confirmed payment, with the exception of custom orders and items specified as "made to order" which may take longer.
I use UK Royal Mail for all shipping requirements. For overseas customers, once your item has left the UK, your package will be handed over to your local postal service for delivery.
Packages will be addressed to the exact delivery address entered on your order, so please ensure that the full and correct delivery details have been given.
Shipping options and costs, in relation to your order and shipping destination, are clearly stated in your shopping basket before you reach checkout. See Shipping / Postage & Packaging for full details. Please choose your shipping options carefully, as I will not be held liable for any loss or damage to your goods in the post. I recommend you choose the option that includes insurance, as Royal Mail will not fully compensate gemstone jewellery or gemstone gift items that are lost or damaged in the mail, without full insurance coverage. I reserve the right to change the shipping options on certain orders where deemed necessary.
In the case of any package being damaged or lost in the post, I will make a claim of compensation from Royal Mail on your behalf. Once the loss or damage has been confirmed by Royal Mail, and not before this time, a reimbursement of your costs will be made where applicable. Royal Mail offer a maximum of only £20 for non-insured items.
In the case that your package is unclaimed and/or returned to me, three attempts to contact you will be made. If there is no response to these contacts, your items will be auctioned and any monies raised will be given to charity. Reposting your returned package will cost the original shipping plus the fee charged to me by the payment processing company through which your payment is made. A refund will be offered for any returned items in good condition, less the original shipping cost and less the fees charged to me by the payment processing company through which you originally paid.
In the case that you have placed multiple orders to the same destination, these - wherever possible - will be packaged and shipped together.
Some countries have postal restrictions on semi-precious gemstones and/or jewellery. Please check with Customs & Excise in your chosen destination before placing your order. Items sent from the UK to the EU are subject to VAT and duties in the EU. If you choose to go ahead with the purchase of any item(s) that are restricted, you take full responsibility for any loss or additional costs if the items do not reach their destination. If your package is returned to me, marked "Refused by Customs", you will receive a refund for your items, less original shipping costs and any fees I have been charged.
Customer is responsible for the payment of any VAT, duties, or fees charged for receipt of their package. If your package is returned to me because of unpaid fees, you will receive a refund for your items, less original shipping costs and any fees charged to me by the payment processing company through which you originally paid.
Please remember to add [email protected] to your email address book to ensure you receive your confirmation, as well as information about when your package has been sent. I am not responsible for emails you do not receive.
