  1. CANCELLATIONS AND RIGHT TO TERMINATION

The following Terms and Conditions apply only to purchases made at the anacardim-jewellery.com store.

If you have opted for payment by multibanco reference, failure to pay for the order within 24 hours after the date on which it was finally placed implies the automatic cancellation of the order. Even if the payment reference remains valid, we can already guarantee the existing stock at the time of your initial order.

You can cancel your order at any time until it is delivered, with the right to a refund of the amounts paid. If it has already been shipped, the customer will be responsible for its return, this amount being refunded after verifying that the item is in the same state in which it was sent. If this does not happen, the piece will be sent back to the Customer assuming that, under these conditions, the return of the purchase price can no longer occur.

Upon receipt of the order by the Customer, the latter may exercise the right to withdraw in accordance with the law, namely Decree Law No. 24/2014, of February 14. The Customer is entitled to termination without giving any reason and without incurring any costs other than those mentioned below. The withdrawal period expires after 14 non-working days from the day on which the Customer or an external entity other than the carrier, and appointed by the Customer, acquires physical possession of the articles,

IMPORTANT: All parts will be sealed in their frontal area. You will be able to try the piece on the body without having to remove the aforementioned seal. Once the jewel has been broken, it is considered that the jewel has already been used. ANA CARDIM does not accept the return of used items, the customer having to assume, in this case, the purchase of the product.

Within the termination period, the Customer must inform ANA CARDIM of the respective decision to terminate the contract via email sales@anacardim-jewellery.com

If the Customer exercises their right to withdrawal, ANA CARDIM will refund all payments received from the Customer through the same payment method used in the initial transaction, unless it has expressly agreed to another method; in any case, you will not incur any fees resulting from such refund.

ANA CARDIM will withhold the reimbursement until the items sent are received, even if the Customer has presented proof of having sent the items back, since it will be necessary to verify that the item is in the same state in which it was sent and that it has not been used. If this does not happen, the piece will be sent back to the Customer assuming that, under these conditions, the return of the purchase price can no longer occur.

The Customer will return the items to the address mentioned in these terms, or must deliver them to ANA CARDIM or another person authorized by the latter to receive the items, without undue delay and, in any case, within a period of 14 working days from the day on which you communicate your decision to terminate the contract with ANA CARDIM.

The Customer will initially bear the cost of the return. Returned items must keep the security seal inviolate and be packed in the complete original packaging, accompanied by the corresponding invoice. The costs of this return shipment will be refunded later and after confirmation of the condition of the returned product.

In accordance with applicable law (Decree Law no. 7/2004 of January 7), ANA CARDIM reserves the right to cancel an order whenever a programming error occurs, a malfunction in ANA CARDIM’s computers.

 11.  CARE AND MAINTENANCE · GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

To best preserve your jewelry, you should store it individually in the packaging, avoid contact with perfume, cream, oils or other greasy and/or abrasive substances.

Jewelry cleaning should be carried out with white toothpaste and a previously moistened soft toothbrush. Brush mainly on the textured areas and lightly on the polishing areas. Rinse with water and dry with absorbent kitchen paper. Customers who purchase pieces at the anacardim-jewellery.com store must proceed in accordance with the information provided with the same regularity with which they use the jewel.

Specifications:

In silver pieces without a coating bath, the oxidation process is inevitable and accelerates or decreases according to the humidity of the environment, the PH of the skin, etc. These pieces require maintenance by the customer with suitable products for cleaning silver, which can be easily purchased at local drugstores or large commercial areas.

In the case of silver pieces with gold plating baths, the oxidation process is slower because the surface of the silver is coated with a layer of gold alloy that is more resistant to oxidation. However, avoid hitting hard surfaces as well as prolonged use in contact with detergents, abrasives, fats or creams, as these actions could lead to premature wear of the coating before the period foreseen by the guarantee period. The cleaning procedure should be carried out using white toothpaste and a damp soft toothbrush. Rinse with water and dry with absorbent kitchen paper. In cases where the PH of the skin accelerates the oxidation process of the piece, it may be necessary to reinforce the gold bath, which will now be part of the “repair service”. Nonetheless, the cleaning procedure described above should resolve or greatly improve the situation if all the maintenance precautions described above have been taken.

In the case of brass pieces with gold or platinum coatings, the oxidation process is faster, although we take care to reinforce the layer thickness in the baths carried out in order to prolong their durability. You can still always use the “repair service” to maintain your jewelry.

  1. QUALITY ASSURANCE

All the jewelry designed and made by the ANA CARDIM brand are individually produced and undergo various manual production processes. Therefore, there may be slight variations between the photographs available at the anacardim-jewellery.com store and the real jewels you receive after purchase.

The items sold here can be viewed and verified by the competent authorities at our atelier: Rua do Sol ao Rato, 21 – 3º esq 1250-261 Lisboa

In case of doubt about the authenticity of the brands, the Customer can consult the Contrastaria services to verify them.

According to the established law, all items are guaranteed for 2 years, from the date the purchase invoice is issued. We therefore recommend that you keep the piece in its original packaging together with proof of purchase. All damage arising from technical defect issues, during this period, will be assumed by ANA CARDIM who is also responsible for the costs of shipping to the atelier as well as the costs of sending it back to the customer’s address after repairing the problem.

However, any liability is excluded for damage to the items resulting from lack of precaution and inappropriate or negligent use, taking into account the conditions of normal use and attentive to the “Care and Maintenance” described above. It is also recommended that you carefully read the exclusions provided for in the warranty, which are detailed below this document.

If the item purchased is defective, the Customer must report the situation via email to support@anacardim-jewellery.com, specifying the order number and a description of the defect. The costs of returning or collecting the defective item within the guarantee period will be borne by ANA CARDIM.

Upon receipt of the article at ANA CARDIM’s facilities, a technical check will be carried out and, in case of non-compliance, the article will be replaced. In this case, ANA CARDIM will replace the item and send it back to the Customer’s address at no additional cost.

Warranty Exclusions:

a – In silver pieces with gold coating, the contact of the piece with a more acidic skin pH may eventually cause accelerated wear of the coating layer. Likewise, knocks on hard surfaces, prolonged use in contact with detergents, abrasives or some creams can lead to premature wear of the coating. In these cases, you may be assisted to have a new bath through the repair service described below.

b – In uncoated silver pieces, the oxidation process is inevitable and requires maintenance by the customer with suitable products for cleaning silverware. If you wish, you can be assisted in cleaning your part through the repair service described below, however, we advise you to maintain the parts in accordance with the advice described above.

If the technical verification detects signs of incorrect use, and/or any problem that may have caused such a defect, the Customer will be contacted to indicate whether he wants to have the item repaired. In this case, the costs related to the repair will be borne by the Customer.

In order to evaluate each case correctly, you must first send an email to support@anacardim-jewellery.com explaining the situation and send images that illustrate it so that a consensus can be reached on each specific situation.

  1. REPAIR SERVICE

Our repair service is exclusive to the ANA CARDIM jewelry brand. We do not accept orders or quotes or any type of service for jewelry from other brands.

For any question about the repair of your jewelry outside the warranty period, or within the scope of the exceptions provided for by it, you should report the situation via email to support@anacardim-jewellery.com.

We will be happy to help by analyzing the case in advance in order to give you the respective budget. The sending and re-sending of the items will be borne by the customer. The repair will only start after express acceptance of the quote by the Customer and the initial payment of 60% upon award. The delivery time will vary according to each specific case and will be foreseen in the delivery of the budget.
