shipping options and delivery times
thank for purchasing from ute decker. I am an independent artist jeweller running a small atelier. while i aim to ship within three days of receipt of your online purchase sometimes even quicker, during holidays or exhibitions this might on rare occassions take longer.
should you require the piece on a specific date for a special occasion, please enquire before ordering.
order confirmation & availability
the pieces listed for sale on this site are often unique. they may also be available for sale through galleries and at exhibitions, thus on very rare occasions there is a possibility that a piece may have been sold to another customer before your order is received.
we may contact you to say that we do not accept your order. this is typically for the following reasons:
- the products are unavailable;
- we cannot authorise your payment;
- there has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the products.
all orders are subject to acceptance, and we will confirm such availability and acceptance to you by sending you an acceptance confirmation e-mail.
when you place your order at the end of the online checkout process (e.g. when you click on ‘submit’ or ‘confirm’), we will acknowledge it by email (“acknowledgement“). this acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted.
the contract of sale between us will only be formed when you receive an email confirming acceptance of your order.
please note that all shipping times are estimated and there are currently delays to all destinations due to covid-19. if you do require your jewellery by a specific date, please get in touch before ordering.
