You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.

Returns Procedure

You may return new items sold and fulfilled online within 14 days of delivery.

Please contact our customer service team on (02) 9522 9095 or so we can assist you with your return. When returning your items you will need to include your Order details, reason for the return and all the packaging to the store.

Items should be returned with the original packaging and paperwork (such as certificates or watch instructions/warranty booklets). If you choose to ship your order back to us rather than returning it to Pontifex Jewellers, you are responsible for any shipping and handling charges you might incur. The same 14-day period applies for refund or exchange, so please have the return package postmarked within the period based on the date we shipped the order to you.

We suggest that you ship your order via Courier or Express Post to make tracking your return possible. (Pontifex Jewellers will take no responsibility for goods lost in the post).
