Returns Policy

WARRANTY

Our products come with a 6-month warranty from the date of purchase for all manufacturing defects. All products that are deemed to be faulty, as the result of a manufacturing fault, will be repaired and/or replaced at no cost to the customer.

Repairs can take between 3-4 weeks.

In the case of a faulty item, please contact us with your order #, your full name and address, and photographic evidence with a brief description of the fault.

Customers are advised that mishandling and wear-and-tear during the course of normal use is not considered a fault, as all pearls are fair in nature and should be handled carefully.

Products that are no longer covered by the our 6-month warranty, or are damaged because of mishandling or mistreatment, will not be eligible for a replacement. Customers can opt to have their item repaired for an additional fee plus postage which will be invoiced to the customer via email and commenced once payment is received.

Please note that mishandling includes mishandling by the customer, shipping, accidents, exposure to the elements, abusive knock, normal wear and tear, ageing & natural tarnishing.

Customers are advised to read Akuna Pearls Care Guideline before purchasing any items.
