No, we do not generally offer a 'while you wait' repair service. Items will need to be left with us in order for us to carry out the repairs properly.
The simple answer to this is, no. One of the defining properties of gold is that it is very hard wearing in it's purest form. The common misconception is that the more 'alloy' that is added, the harder wearing the resulting gold alloy. This is simply not the case, the more copper/alloy that is added, the quicker it will wear away. There is a difference between 'hardness' (malleability) and 'hard-wearing'.
No.Victoria James' jewellery, including ring settings is made only for our diamonds and gemstones. We take pride in our level of quality and need to retain this for our customers. This is what keeps our brand pure and consistent.
No, we can only value items for insurance if we are able to assess them ourselves. We can provide you with a 'quote to replace' letter to supply to an insurance company. This costs £65 and will be deducted off the price of the order, if proceeded, with us.

International shipping costs will be calculated according to the value of the cart total and when you have entered the delivery address. If no delivery cost is shown during the cart process then we will contact you with a quote.
This is because calibrated gemstones come in different weights due to the way they are cut, which is why we work on the measurements rather than the carat weight because they are consistent, for example a 7x5mm oval Ruby could weigh 0.75ct or it could weigh 1.00ct, however both stones still measure 7x5mm.
For delivery in the UK we use Royal mail special delivery service and for international orders we will deliver your items using UPS. Both services are tracked, insured and will need to be signed for upon receipt.
Unfortunately, for security reasons we can only deliver to the billing address of the card used to make payment unless payment is made by using our bank transfer option. If you would like to do this then please select this option at checkout.
