Warranty & Returns
We’re proud to be a Kiwi owned and operated company and we stand behind the quality of our products. Stow products are designed and handcrafted to the highest standards. We use the finest quality material for all of our products. Like all quality jewellery, Stow products require special care.
There is a 12-month warranty on all Stow products.
This warranty covers manufacturing faults only*.
We will only exchange or repair product which we find to be faulty.
We will only exchange or repair product with a store receipt.
Stow Lockets are designed for Stow charms only; placing non stow charms or gemstones inside lockets will void the warranty.
Our warranty is provided in addition to your rights under the Consumer Guarantees Act.
*This warranty does not cover:
- General wear and tear including tarnishing and scratching.
- Mistreatment of jewellery: broken, bent, stretched or scratched products caused by being dropped, pulled, knocked or otherwise mistreated.
- Failure to care for Stow products as per our Cleaning and Care Guidelines.
- Lost or stolen items: insurance cover is advisable on all valuable jewellery.
- Unauthorised repair or alteration to the product.
- Damage caused by wearing Stow products alongside other non-Stow products.
- Natural variation: Stow products are handmade, so slight variations between products may exist, which add to the beauty of the product and are not considered faults. Products may vary in appearance, colour and size (from other units of the same product and from product images used in promotional materials).
