Delivery and Returns
We aim to dispatch all orders within two working days (Mon-Fri), although there are some exceptions to this. When making a purchase online please be aware that if the item is in stock for you to purchase on the website, it doesn't necessarily mean we have it in stock for immediate dispatch.
Where watches and jewellery are available for immediate dispatch, orders will be dispatched within one or two working days (Mon-Fri). Some items, including personalised items, special orders, rings in some sizes may have an extended dispatch time, please see below for further details. Some low stock items may also need to be obtained from our stores which may cause a slight delay in dispatching your order. When there is a delay with your order, you will be contacted as soon as possible, usually within one working day, with further details and an amended timescale.
Customers will receive a confirmation of dispatch email and most orders should be delivered within 5 working days from order placement. Whilst we make every endeavour to supply items in a reasonable timescale we cannot accept any liability for late delivery or failure to fulfil an order in a particular timescale. If you require an item before a specific date, please contact our customer team at email@example.com who will do all they can to assist and advise.
Unfortunately we are unable to keep stocks of every ring size so delivery of rings may take longer where a particular size is required. We will usually be able to obtain the ring from one of our stores and dispatch promptly however please allow up to 21 days for delivery. We will always inform you of an expected dispatch date if the item is going to be delivered outside of the usual 5 working days.
In some instances rings are made especially to order in the size you require. This service can take 4 - 6 weeks depending on the style however we would advise you promptly and ask for your confirmation of your wish to proceed.
Each piece is ordered and made especially for you with your personalised information so please allow 28 days for the delivery of your personalised jewellery. You will be notified of the expected timescale for your item(s) when your order is placed.
We use reliable services from Royal Mai for all our orders, both domestic and international. We will provide you with a tracking reference for your order so you can confirm the status of the delivery on the Royal Mail website.
All domestic orders are tracked door to door for your security and peace of mind. Royal Mail Special Delivery is a guaranteed service with delivery being made before 1pm the next working day after the date of dispatch. Royal Mail Tracked services usually take 24 or 48 hours from the date of dispatch to be delivered, depending on the service selected, but this timescale is not guaranteed.
For international deliveries we use the most detailed international option available for your country. Where possible orders are sent Tracked and Signed, although this is not available in all all countries in which cases Tracked or Signed services will be used instead. The estimated delivery timescale from dispatch is usually up to 7-10 working days depending on the country where delivery is being made.* Relevant pricing information will be shown at the time of order placement.

If you order several items in one order for delivery to the same address only one delivery charge will be made, even if we decide to dispatch in two separate parcels.
We understand that jewellery is often purchased as a gift and as such we do not show any reference to Chapelle Jewellery on any packaging. All items are sent out in suitable packaging so they arrive undamaged and the parcel cannot be identified as containing jewellery.
As standard procedure all paperwork relating to the order is contained in the parcel however should you wish the paperwork to be sent to you as an email only, this can be arranged. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org confirming your order reference and advising us of your wish.
We also offer gift wrapping, which can be selected at checkout for a small additional charge.
30 Day Money Back Promise
Under the Distance Selling Regulations, you have a 'cooling off period' of 7 days giving you the right to return goods you have purchases online for a full refund. This does not include items which have been especially made for you or have some associated hygiene requirement such as earrings or body jewellery.
We offer our customers purchasing through our website the opportunity to return items within a 30 day cooling off period after the item has been despatched by us. Items returned for a refund must be returned in good condition, unused, with original packaging and paperwork. The items must arrive at our offices within 30 days of our despatch date to you. Our earrings and body jewellery will be supplied in sealed packets. You may only return earrings or body jewellery for a refund during this 30 day period if the sealed package has not been tampered with.
Returns will not be accepted outside the 30 day period which will be clearly shown on your delivery note and other documents. We will only pay the return postage if the item is faulty. If you are returning an item as you have changed your mind or it is unsuitable you will need to pay the cost of returning the item to us.
Please return your item to us by Royal Mail using a signed for service as this ensures the item is insured whilst in the postal system and, unlike many courier companies, Royal Mail do deliver to PO Box addresses. Please do not return your item using a courier service. Courier services cannot deliver to PO Box addresses and this can add some time on to your return. If you do send your item back to us using a courier please note that we cannot refund these charges.
Our website returns policy differs to our in store gift exchange policy due to the Distance Selling Regulations. When purchasing online you don't have the chance to touch, see and try on the item so you have the opportunity to return the item for a refund if the item is unworn and within 30 days of purchase. If you purchase an item in one of our shops you are able to make a considered purchase, try the item on and decide if it is suitable. If you do change your mind about an item you have purchased in one of our shops you can return it in an unworn condition and in the original packaging within 28 days of purchase for an exchange for an alternative item or a giftcard. This excludes pierced jewellery items which are non returnable.
If you choose to return a purchase you have made on our website to a store, please be advised the store teams are unable to process a refund. You will need to take all your paperwork and the store team will be able to process an exchange for an alternative item or issue a gift card for the value of the purchase. Refunds for online purchases have to link to the original payment method used and as such these can only be done by our team at our offices in Nottingham. Please also be aware that not all Chapelle stores carry the brands which are available on our website. Our stores are happy to return your online purchase to our offices on your behalf; please be advised this will add a further 7 days to the processing time.
CHRISTMAS RETURNS POLICY
From the 1st November we have extended our returns policy online until January 14th as we appreciate items purchased may be a Christmas gift. As long as the item is returned in the brand new unworn condition you received it in, we will provide you with a refund or exchange of your choice until the 14th January. This information will also be stamped on your invoice for your peace of mind.
Special Orders and Personalised Jewellery
Please be aware that special orders and our range of personalised jewellery is exempt from our returns policy, unless stated otherwise on the product listing. This is because each piece is made specifically to fulfil your order and therefore is not a standard stock item.
Store Purchases and Returns
With the exception of pierced jewellery (earrings and body jewellery etc) and specially ordered or altered items, we are happy to exchange items purchased in stores. Simply return the unused item to one of our stores with the original packaging and receipt within 28 days for an exchange.
We are happy to exchange store purchases however it is not our policy to give refunds for returned items except under the requirements of The Sale of Goods Act, for example where they have a manufacturing fault. Your statutory rights are unaffected.
If you are unable to select a suitable replacement item in the store then a gift card will be provided which is valid for 2 years from date of issue.
