FAQ

Shipping

 

When placing your delivery address please ensure all information concerning billing and shipping is correct. We are unable to redirect the package as soon as an order has been processed and it has been dispatched. Should you order twice, we are unable to refund shipping costs on a second order. Each order is registered independently within our system.

All orders will be processed within 5-7 working days. After this period, please allow 7-15 days for courier delivery within the UK & Europe, 10-21 days for standard international, non -EU shipping.

At this time, sadly we cannot ship to Central America, South America or India. This is due to unpredictable and unreliable postal services in those countries.

Petite Collective is not responsible for for any fees charged by customs. The carrier will contact you in case of any extra charges or customs clearance. This might delay the delivery. Please be advised that it is your responsibility to pay for these extra charges

No Returns

Items are final sale.

Due to high demand and limited quantity, we do not offer refunds of any kind on any items. If you are very unhappy with your purchase you do however have 14 days to return the item to us and we will reimburse you in store credit. We ask you to email us with your order number as soon as possible. As a very small brand, we sadly cannot cover the cost of returns.  All store credit has a validity for 3 consecutive months, after which it will expire and no longer be valid.

 

DAMAGES

If your order arrives broken or damaged, sadly this is completely out of our control, we ask you to email us immediately so that we can help the best we can. Depending on the damages, we offer a full refund or store credit. We do remind you though that vintage can often be fragile and while we do our best to protect our pieces for shipping, what happens once the package leaves us is so often, sadly out of our control.

Vintage Items Care

Taking time to look after your vintage jewellery can significantly reduce tarnish.

*Make sure all lotions and perfume have been absorbed into skin, before wear.

*Avoid spraying perfume, hairspray or any form of liquid onto jewellery.

*Remove all items of jewellery when swimming or in the shower.

*Store away from direct heat, sunlight, window sills and vents.

*Store pearls in soft fabric not plastic to allow them to breathe

*Use special jewellery polish cloth to clean gold and silver.

NEVER USE TISSUE.

*Take jewellery off when going to bed.

Pre orders

What is a pre-order?
A pre-order means you are purchasing a product that isn't available to ship immediately. If a product is on pre-order it means our stock is currently in production. By placing a pre-order you are effectively reserving the product to ensure you receive it as soon as it is available.

 

When will my payment be taken?
Your payment will be taken immediately.

 

When will my pre-order be dispatched?
The estimated dispatch date for a pre-order product will be displayed on the product page. This is subject to change. Please check the product page for updates to the estimated dispatch date or email our Customer Care team for an update.

 

Can I cancel my pre-order?
No it is not possible to cancel your pre-order.

 

What if I order other products alongside my pre-order product(s)?
If your order contains other in stock items alongside your pre-order product, we are happy to ship all in stock items immediately. Your pre-order product will then ship separately once available using our Standard UK or International shipping services. Although you will need to cover postage costs for each dispatch.
