Zoe Davidson Jewellery Items

Zoe Davidson Jewellery provides jewellery that is completely hand made in the Orkney Isles so you can be assured that you will receive a one-of-a-kind piece. But because every item is made by hand there may be small differences and variations in shape compared to the photographs displayed on our website.

In addition, there may be slight colour differences in gemstones from that on our website photographs. This is out of our control as some gemstones naturally have colour variations. However, we always do try to choose the best gemstones for our jewellery.

Hallmarking

All Zoe Davidson Jewellery’s items are made from precious metals such as  Sterling Silver (.925) or Gold (.375, .585, .750 or .916) unless otherwise stated.

Please note, once a deposit has been made for your bespoke order, it confirms that you are committed to the order, thus, it can no longer be cancelled.

Quotes are estimates, therefore, there may be slight changes in the final price due to fluctuations in metal prices or changes in the manufacturing. However, the change in price will only be within reason.

Once your jewellery is ready to be collected or despatched, we require you to pay the remainder of the order. Payment can be made by Paypal or Bank Transfer. Goods remain in the property of Zoe Davidson Jewellery until your order is paid in full.
