Customer Support and the product pages on the Site can provide you with information regarding products that are currently available for sale through those channels. Please note that only merchandise displaying an “Add to Shopping Cart” icon is available for sale through the Site.

You will also receive a second email summarizing the personal information you provided in registering for your online account. You are responsible for ensuring that your password and/or account login are kept secret, safe and secure at all times. Auvere will not be held responsible or liable for any misuse of your account in connection with, and/or resulting from, a third-party’s access to and use of your password and account login.
When placing an order on the Site you will be required to provide other personal information as applicable, such as shipping address, billing address and payment details. Additional information may be collected by Auvere or its third-party providers at this time for security and anti-fraud purposes.
You represent and warrant that the personal information you provide to Customer Support or via the Site is true, valid, complete, accurate and up-to-date in all respects, and you confirm that you are the person referred to in the shipping and billing information provided.
If you are ordering on the Site, orders will be processed as follows: Once you have chosen a product, click on the “Add to Shopping Cart” icon to place this product in your shopping cart. You may then decide to continue shopping for other products and add them to your shopping cart (subject to availability and quantity limits) or proceed to “Checkout” by clicking on this button.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided for herein, Auvere reserves the right to refuse, cancel or terminate orders at any moment in time.

6. PRICES, TAX AND SHIPPING COSTS
All prices shown on the product pages of the Site or quoted by Customer Support are in U.S. Dollars.
Auvere reserves the right to modify prices and delivery costs at any time without prior notice. The price of a product and delivery costs displayed on the Site or quoted by a member of our Customer Support Team, at the time Auvere provides you with a Confirmation of Order, will be honored by Auvere. Any description and information concerning the weight of precious materials and the number of stones and carats are provided as a reference and may vary.
Actual shipping costs and applicable taxes will be reflected on your payment page before you are asked to confirm and place your order (in the case an order from the Site) and will also be reflected in the Confirmation of Order described in Section 9 below. Delivery costs, if any, are described in the shipping policy set forth below. Sales and use taxes will vary based on the location to which products are being shipped. Delivery costs and estimated sales and use taxes are not stated on the product pages but will be added to the product price, if applicable after you have chosen your delivery location and options.
The actual sales tax associated with your purchase will be calculated at the time when your order is to be shipped, at which point you will receive a Confirmation of Order. Please note that changes to applicable law between the date your order is placed and the date you are sent a Confirmation of Order may result in changes to the sales tax associated with your purchase. If the resulting change is an increase in the sales tax you are charged, we will contact you and ask that you reconfirm your purchase.
7. PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD OR PAYPAL
Auvere accepts the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
When ordering on the Site, you will need to enter your payment details on the appropriate form. In the case of an order placed by telephone, you will need to communicate to Customer Support your credit/debit card number and your three- or four-digit security code that is printed on the back or the front of your card. Your telephone conversation will be recorded for security and quality control purposes.
All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to Auvere, you will need to contact your card issuer directly to solve this problem, and Auvere will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery or any fees or penalties incurred by you.
In order to process your order, we may perform security checks on your credit card. Your credit card will be charged the full amount of the applicable purchase price at the time your order is placed. By submitting an offer to purchase Auvere products on the Site or through a member of our Customer Support team, you expressly authorize Auvere to perform such security checks, where Auvere deems necessary or appropriate, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your credit card number, to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit card, to obtain a credit card authorization and to authorize individual purchase transactions.
Auvere is prohibited under U.S. law from making sales of its goods to individuals or companies designated on the Office of Foreign Assets Controls (“OFAC”), Specially Designated Nationals (“SDN”) List, or to country destinations sanctioned by the U.S. Any such transactions will be declined.
You should carefully check and confirm all details on the payment page before placing your order through the Site, including without limitation the particulars of each sale. In the case of an order being placed through a member of our Customer Support Team may verbally ask you to confirm the details of your order.

Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed on the Site, you will receive an Acknowledgment of Order by email, acknowledging the details of your order. This Acknowledgment of Order will contain an Order Reference Number assigned by Auvere. Please make sure that you save this Order Reference Number for any future inquiries regarding your order. This Acknowledgment of Order is not an acceptance of your order. Following the transmission of the Acknowledgment of Order, Auvere will conduct its usual credit, anti-fraud, security and related legal checks and, if acceptable, will then process your order.
These Conditions of Sale will be provided to you with the Acknowledgement of Order through either email link or pdf. Please carefully review these Conditions of Sale upon receipt.

Auvere insures each purchase during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to you. We require a signature by an adult to confirm your acceptance of each Auvere product delivered, at which point responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes then you understand and accept that evidence of a signature by such recipient (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment of the sale contract by Auvere and transfer of responsibility to the recipient in the same way as if the product had been delivered to you.
For international orders, shipping charges, customs fees and import duties and taxes (collectively, the "International Shipping Costs") are calculated at the end of the checkout process and charged to you when you finalize your purchase. Simply add a product to your shopping bag, provide your full and complete shipping address, and continue the checkout process. The International Shipping Costs will be displayed just before the order is ready to be finalized. If you require assistance with respect to the checkout process and/or international shipping costs, please call or email Customer Support at (866) 317-7779 and email@example.com respectively.
Notwithstanding any estimate, quote or calculation provided by us during the checkout process, please be advised that you bear full responsibility for any and all customs fees, import duties, taxes, or other local charges resulting from international shipping. These charges are beyond our control as they are set by the customs authority of the destination country, and they depend on a number of factors, such as local VAT rates and local import taxes.
11. RETURN POLICY
In order to ensure your total satisfaction, a customer may return Auvere products in accordance with the return and exchange policy set forth below. Returns of Auvere products that are not in compliance with the conditions and timeframes set forth below may be rejected by Auvere and will be sent back to the customer.
11.1. Return Period
Auvere allows a customer to return Auvere products purchased on the Site or directly by phone through our Customer Support team within thirty (30) days following delivery, but subject to the terms and conditions set forth below. For avoidance of doubt, products that have not been purchased on the Site or through our Customer Support team may not be returned to Auvere.
11.2. Return Process
To initiate the return process for products that have been purchased on the Site or through Customer Support, customers should do the following:
(i) If a customer has an account with Auvere, such person may initiate a return or exchange and obtain a return label by:
(a) logging into such person’s account;
(b) going to “orders” and locating the order containing the item that is to be returned;
(c) clicking on the “return” button; and
(d) and following all directions set forth thereafter;
(ii) If a customer who desires to make a return does not have an account with Auvere or if such customer has an account but does not wish to initiate the return process through such account, such customer should contact Auvere Customer Support by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (866)317-7779 in order to obtain a return label;
(iii) Once the label has been received by the customer, the customer should first place the jewelry that is to be returned in its protective pouch(es), and then place the pouch(es) in the original Auvere box(es) in the same manner as such jewelry was delivered originally. The package should include the packing slip marked to indicate which product is being returned;
(iv) Place the Auvere box containing the jewelry in an appropriate shipping box;
(v) Seal the shipping box and affix the pre-paid delivery label to it; and
(vi) Bring the package to any FedEx or UPS location, as the case may be, or call FedEx or UPS to arrange pick-up.
Should a customer decide to return a purchased item within the thirty (30) day period, Auvere and the customer agree that Auvere maintains a special interest in the merchandise and will, therefore, purchase insurance on the returned merchandise.
Auvere is under no obligation to do so but will take this initiative for the customer's convenience.
The customer must keep a proof of return shipment and the FedEx tracking number. Auvere accepts no liability in the event that such proof cannot be produced. Only merchandise received by the Auvere Customer Service center will be eligible for a refund or exchange.
Upon receiving a return, Auvere will verify that the returned product satisfies the conditions of the return policy and, if so, will proceed with the applicable refund or exchange.
11.3. Conditions to Return a Product
Auvere products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials in place and tags and stickers attached to them, as well as with the original Auvere box and delivery packaging, including all accessories and documents. Auvere will not accept any return if the product shows any signs of wear or has been used or altered from its original condition in any way.
All returns will be subject to strict Quality Control (QC) by Auvere to ensure that the returned products satisfy these requirements. If the products do not meet QC standards as determined by Auvere in its sole and absolute discretion, Auvere will refuse the return, and the products will be sent back to the customer. If the returned product satisfies Quality Control (QC), Auvere will proceed with the applicable refund or exchange.
11.4. Refunds and Merchandise Credit
Only a customer will be entitled to receive a refund. If a customer’s return complies with the return policy, Auvere will use reasonable efforts to credit the refund to the customer’s credit card account no later than fourteen (14) days after receipt of the returned item by the Auvere Customer Support center. Except for the delivery of a defective product, initial shipping charges will not be refunded to the customer.
Customers may be permitted to exchange a product purchased on the Site or by phone through Customer Support for another Auvere product if the product to be exchanged satisfies the conditions of the return policy within thirty (30) days following delivery.
Auvere will send an invoice as a .pdf attachment to the Customer’s email address, which specifies the value of the returned product, the price of the item for which the original product has been exchanged and the difference to be paid by the customer or the amount that the customer is entitled to receive, as indicated below.
Should a product be returned for exchange to the Auvere, only the customer will be entitled to receive a refund of the price difference if the returned product is more expensive than the exchanged Auvere product. If the returned product is less expensive than the exchanged item, the customer will be charged the difference in price.
11.6. Defective products
Auvere is extremely cautious in ensuring that each product strictly complies with our quality criteria and that it has passed all our controls, both technical and aesthetic.
If nevertheless you receive a product that seems to be damaged, you may return it to Auvere in accordance with the return policy. Upon receipt, Auvere may classify the returned product as a defective product. Please note that items that are damaged as a result of wear and tear are not considered to be defective. Only you, the customer, may request an exchange or a refund of the full price of your initial purchase.
If your product is declared as defective by Auvere, the following solutions will be proposed to the customer:
i) Auvere may send you the same product in the exact same size, subject to availability,
ii) Auvere may propose an exchange for another Auvere product of equivalent or higher value, in which case, the initial price will be deducted and you will be required to pay the difference.
