At Diamond Empire Candles, we are committed to providing efficient and reliable shipping services for our valued customers in the UK. Please review our shipping policy below:
Shipping Methods and Delivery Timeframes:
We offer shipping via trusted carriers to ensure timely and secure delivery of your orders. The estimated delivery time for standard shipping is typically between 3 to 5 business days within the UK. Please note that these timeframes are approximate and may vary depending on the destination and any unforeseen circumstances.
We strive to process and ship all orders as quickly as possible. Every Diamond Empire product is handmade freshly on order and for this reason, please give us 2-4 business days (only from Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays) from receiving the order for the time of making your special products. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a confirmation email with tracking information to monitor the status of your delivery.
We offer free standard shipping on all orders over £49 within the UK. However, standard and expedited shipping options may be available at an additional cost, which will be clearly displayed during the checkout process. Any applicable shipping fees will be calculated and displayed before you finalize your purchase.
Shipping costs vary according to the weight of the package and country. Customers outside the United Kingdom will also be liable for any customs / import duty, quotas, permits, product restrictions and other local requirements. The recipient of the parcel must pay these charges. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; therefore you are advised to check the latest applicable local requirements in your country before placing an order.
Once your order has been shipped, you will receive a tracking number via email. You can use this tracking number to monitor the progress of your shipment through the carrier’s website.
Please ensure that you provide an accurate and complete shipping address during the checkout process. We are not responsible for any delays or delivery issues resulting from incorrect or incomplete address details provided by the customer.
Delays and Exceptions:
While we make every effort to ensure prompt delivery, there may be unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather conditions or carrier delays that can impact the estimated delivery timeframes. In such cases, we appreciate your patience and understanding.

We only replace your jewellery if the one you received is an order error or the jewellery is damaged. We DO NOT replace if you have selected the incorrect size or jewellery type or received a jewellery with the same design (our jewellery reveals are luck of the draw).
We ensure that all of the jewellery surprise that we place inside our products have undergone rigorous quality check for any manufacturing faults. We highly recommend you inspect the jewellery surprise within 60 days from purchase date in case there are any issues/faults that might arise. Manufacturing defects/faults are covered with our 60 Day Jewellery Guarantee. Our jewellery guarantee covers manufacturing defects, this does not include neglect, loss of item, general wear and tear, chain breakage and tarnishing. The warranty is voided if the jewellery has been bent, engraved, altered and modified, damaged by accident, misuse, and discolouration caused by foreign substances. All metals tarnish over time, however, contact with foreign substances such as hand sanitiser, cleaning agent, soap, cosmetic products, and acidic skin types can cause discolouration much faster. Tarnishing and discolourations caused by the above reasons will not be covered under this warranty.
Scratches are not considered a manufacturing defect, meaning it is not covered under warranty as they occur from everyday wear. This includes the wearing down of plated surfaces. Physical contact and friction against other hard and, or rough surfaces will cause the plated layer to wear. This is considered a general wear and tear and will not be covered under warranty. For any jewellery exchange requests, please contact our online customer service team who will be able to assist you.
You may cancel your order up till your order has been picked and processed for delivery. After this, your order is not able to be cancelled. For any order cancellation requests, please contact our online customer service team at [email protected] who will be able to assist you.
