Placing your order
When you place an order with us (by choosing an item and completing our online checkout process), we will send you an acknowledgement by email. This will detail the products you have ordered. Please note that your completion of the online checkout process does not constitute our acceptance of your order.
Our acceptance of your order only takes place when we dispatch it. A ‘purchase contract’ between you and Crystalised Essex is therefore made at the point of dispatch, rather than at the point of payment. If you have cancelled your order, or if we notify you that we cannot accept your order, then no purchase contract will have been made.
From time to time, we may not be able to accept an order for the following reasons:
If, Where we cannot obtain authorisation for your payment
If there has been a pricing or product description error
If you do not meet any eligibility criteria set out in our terms and conditions
If the order for any personalised products contains reference to any copyrighted information where you have not obtained permission
If your order for personalised products contains content which is threatening, defamatory, obscene, indecent, seditious, offensive, pornographic, abusive, liable to incite racial hatred, discriminatory, menacing, scandalous, inflammatory, blasphemous, in breach of confidence, in breach of privacy or which may cause annoyance or inconvenience
We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time and issue a full refund. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Our website states that turnaround for personalised orders is approximately 10-14 working days from date of order to date of dispatch. This does not include weekends or bank holidays. You will find this information under our Delivery section. This is due to extremely high demand for our products and as all items are handmade / custom made with a lot of care & attention going into each item.
We do accept orders from outside of the UK. Orders will be processed in the same way under our same turn around times. However, shipping times will be different. Items can take up to 10 days depending on where the order is being shipped to.
Personalising / Customising your order.
Crystalised Essex aims to provide you with a fast, high-quality service, so any products you order are immediately sent for production. Please double-check your order on screen and your acknowledgement email carefully to check that all the details are correct. We cannot refund items where the personalisation has been mis-spelt due to an error made by you. We therefore ask you to check the details of your order carefully.
When placing an order for a Personalised product, we always send the customer a preview to confirm before we go ahead and print. This preview is for the customer to check that everything is spelt correctly and that nothing has been missed out on your order. We allow 7 days from the date we send the preview for you to reply and confirm. If we do not hear from you, then we will have to continue with your order and process it into print. Any mistakes noticed at a later date we then cannot be held responsible for, as we have given you the opportunity to thoroughly check this through.
At Crystalised Essex you can pay for your goods using Paypal. You do not need a PayPal account to complete your transaction. Please select the Paypal link, and when the page opens there is an option to select ‘pay with a bank card’

We only use CLEAR SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS on our canvases.

Phone cases are handled daily, so for that reason we cannot offer any form of refund/return on loss of crystals.
