All products displayed on this website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to reflect the finished product colours as accurately as possible, we are unable to guarantee that your computers display of the colours accurately reflects the true colour of the finished product.
All drawings, photos, descriptive matter, specifications and advertising issued on this website and any descriptions, photos or illustrations contained in AURICLE's catalogues or brochures are issued or published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the products described in them and to provide an idea of how the finished product will look, and will not form any part of the contract with you.
AURICLE only purchases diamonds from respectable dealers that adhere strictly to the Kimberley Process and every attempt is always made to ensure that diamonds are not sourced from countries that use the money to fund conflicts.
Any geographical or origin provenance claims made in respect of gemstones and metal are made in good faith based on written statements from our suppliers and not laboratory testing.
Some coloured gemstones are heat treated to improve their colour and / or clarity. Aquamarine, citrine, tanzanite, and blue or clear zircon are routinely heat treated whilst agate, amber, carnelian, morganite, ruby, sapphire, smoky quartz, tourmaline and turquoise are commonly heat treated. Pale coloured pearls are likely to be bleached. It should be assumed that these gemstones supplied by us have been treated in this way unless we specify otherwise. Clear topaz is routinely treated with a small amount of irradiation and is then heated to give it a permanent blue colour that runs throughout the stone and opal is commonly treated with waxes or oils to stabilise the gemstone. Any further treatments are individually disclosed.
Emeralds and opals cannot be heat sterilised
In some cases we may use cultivated gemstones. These will be highlighted on the individual product page.
All of the designs displayed on www.auricle.co.uk are the company's intellectual property and are automatically protected under design right. This means that the use of these designs for any purpose without our written permission would be an infringement of UK Patent Law.
Any infringement of design right or copyright (such as copying by other manufacturers or retailers) would entitle us to take civil action in court with a view to seeking damages.
The term 'unique' or 'unique design' when applied to a design or product on this website means that the design has at least one difference to any other design on this website. Although we would never copy other people's work, we cannot be held responsible for copies of our unique designs by other people known or unknown to us.
Under no circumstances shall AURICLE be liable for any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages of any kind, regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), strict product liability or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
