Orders In Store
Items purchased in store have different terms to those orders made online. These do not affect your statutory rights.
Complimentary Ring Sizing
Don’t panic if your ring is too large or too small! Your first sizing, at any time during the first year, is complimentary to ensure a perfect fit. However, to guarantee you are able to return the ring to us for refund or exchange, we suggest sizing is carried out after the item has been received. Please note that our Bespoke rings and gemstones are unique, one or a kind; some rings may not be able to be sized where there is a large difference in the current size to the new size.
You can return the ring to our boutique in Wimbledon Village where we will measure for the correct finger size and re-size in our on-site workshop. A simple ring sizing (i.e. up or down a size) will be turned around as soon as we possibly can normally at most this may be a few days. More complex sizings, on intricate rings can take longer and we will advise at the time of your visit.
Currently Michael Platt can only accept orders for delivery to UK registered addresses. All Michael Platt deliveries of Online Bespoke items from our e-shop are complimentary. If you place your order online before 12 noon, subject to the item being in stock and payment being cleared, your order will be dispatched within approximately 5 working days (Tuesday to Friday). Please factor in extra time to allow for weekends, Bank Holidays and the lead up to Christmas. Extra time should also be factored in for any ring sizing pre-despatch. However, please note, once a ring has been sized to request, as an amended, adapted item it will be not be eligible for exchange or refund.
Your order will be delivered by Courier, we will give further information with tracking details on despatch. Please be aware that all deliveries need to be signed for; a suitably convenient day for delivery can be confirmed and agreed prior to despatch ensuring secure receipt; however it will not be possible to guarantee a specific delivery time.
