There are two types of cookies: Session Cookies and cookies that are saved permanently on your computer.

The first type of cookie commonly used is Session Cookies. During the time you visit the website, our web server assigns your browser a unique identifier string so as not to confuse you with other visitors. A Session Cookie is never stored permanently on your computer and disappears when you close your browser. To use Sömmer without troubles you need to have cookies enabled.

The second type of cookie saves a file permanently on your computer. This type of cookie is used to track how visitors move around on the website. This is only used to offer visitors better services and support. The text files can be deleted.

Sömmer reserves the right to amend any information, including but not limited to prices, technical specifications, terms of purchase and product offerings without prior notice. In the event that a product is sold out, Sömmer has the right to cancel the order and refund any amount paid in the form of store credits. Sömmer shall also notify the customer of equivalent replacement products if available.

Please note that your use of this website and any service contained within, constitutes acceptance of these Terms & Conditions.

Please check the delivered products immediately upon arrival. If it appears that the delivered product is not the ordered product, or the product is inadequate or incomplete, you must report immediately by email to orders@sommerjewelry.com.

The return of the received jewelry must be in its original packaging (including boxes and documentation) and in new condition. Commissioning after detection of failure, damage occurring after detection of failure, encumbrance and / or resale after detection of failure, voids the right to claim and return.

If the complaints by a customer are found justified by Sömmer, we will give the customer the choice to replace the delivered goods free of charge or give the customer a refund in the form of store credits.

As Sömmer is not liable for the loss of an item being returned, we recommend that you return it using registered mail. Your returned items must be returned within 14 days of delivery and arrive at our office within 30 days of receipt. We do not offer free returns or pre-paid labels.

You may receive a refund in the form of store credit of your purchase price before shipping costs once the item has been returned in its original condition. If our tests prove that the items were already worn or altered (except for fitting purposes), we will not accept it back. The items may be sent again to the customer, with no special warning.

We are not responsible for returned items lost in the mail or at customs, so please collect your tracking information for good measure.

Always send your invoice and order number with the return. If a returned item is shipped internationally, mark as Returned goods to avoid any customs charges.

We are not responsible for any charges imposed on packages returned by Customs. After we receive the items, allow 1-7 business days for the refund of the piece’s value, without shipping cost, via promotion code.
