1. Scope

The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale (hereinafter: the “GTC”) shall apply to all orders placed and contracts concluded (hereinafter jointly: the “Order(s)”) by the buyer (hereinafter: the “Customer”) via the online shop Orfelis.ch.

2. Online offer

The online offer is aimed at natural and legal persons, which have their residence or their seat in Switzerland or in Liechtenstein. The items are only delivered to addresses in Switzerland or Liechtenstein.

The offer is valid as long as it appears in the online shop, within the limits of available stocks. The images presented in the online shop represent the “Basic Offer” of items generally available in stock. The criteria for quality assessment of the items, as well as all the information relating to the latter, comply with the standards and international rules of the profession.

From the “Basic Offer”, personalization criteria are made available to the Customer, inviting him to adapt his purchase.

3. Prices

Prices are quoted in Swiss Francs and include VAT. The prices quoted at the time of the Order shall apply to Orders in our online shop.

Any additional services that may be charged for, such as delivery, are invoiced separately.

4. Invoicing

Only the invoice attached to the delivery of the ordered items prevails.

5. Order

After the Customer has completed the ordering process of the online shop and accepted the GTC, Orfelis.ch confirms by e-mail to the Customer the registration of his Order and thus validates the establishment of the contractual relationship between the two parties.

Any confirmed Order is final and binding. No modification is possible by the Customer. In certain cases, in particular in the event of a stock shortage, Orfelis.ch has the right to refuse, without justification, all or part of the Order. In this case, the Customer is informed of the refusal by e-mail and any payment already made is reimbursed to the Customer or credited to his account. Any other claims of the Customer are excluded.

If the order includes several items, the fact that one or more of them are not available, does not cancel the remaining Order.

6. Delivery

The Orders of stock items that are part of the “Basic Offer” are shipped within a delivery period of approximately 3-5 working days.

As regards the personalized items, the delivery periods may vary as follows:

  • Alliances: up to 6 weeks
  • Solitaire set with a personalized diamond: 2 weeks
  • Simple modifications: 1 week

Alternatively, any Order may also be collected by the Customer in an Orfelis store within 48 hours’ notice.

In the event of a stock shortage, the Customer is notified accordingly, as mentioned under point 5 above. Shall a new delivery time be proposed to the Customer, he is free to accept it or require reimbursement instead.

Shipping costs are free for Orders over CHF 350.-. In other cases, a flat-rate contribution of CHF 9.00 is charged to the Customer (secure shipping).

8. Right of return

The Customer may return the ordered items within 15 days of receipt, provided that they are sent back by registered mail in their original packaging, with the invoice, and without having been worn or damaged. The amount corresponding to the returned items will be reimbursed to the Customer or credited to its account.

The right of return does not apply to wedding rings, nor to modified items, such as the ones that have been subject to measurement adjustments or that have been engraved.

The ordered items shall be returned at the Customer’s risks and expense, unless a delivery error is attributable to Orfelis.ch.

9. Warranty
