Risk of Loss
All items purchased from byCARA are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
byCARA and its affiliates attempt to be as accurate as possible. However, byCARA does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by byCARA itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
All products are manufactured and might not look identical to the product images. byCARA will inspect each product before it is sent out to our customers insuring that any manufacturing defect is picked up and replaced with another item.
Discolouration, wear and tear of our products does occur. Wear and tear is damage that naturally and inevitably occurs as a result of normal wear or aging.
We aim to bring you the best quality fashion jewellery and take pride in the quality of our products and excellent value.
- For hygiene reasons earrings may not be returned or exchanged unless faulty.
- We do not offer a refund unless the item is faulty.
- Rings sizes are clearly marked and cannot be returned or refunded due to incorrect sizing.
- If you are unhappy with your purchase and would prefer something else, we will gladly arrange collection via courier and send you a store voucher or exchange the item to the same value but you will have to pay for the courier fee of R65 each way (unless in an outlying area of R120).
- All items are individually checked before shipment to ensure there are no manufacturing defects. However, sometimes we may miss something. If your item(s) are defective they may be returned within 7 days of your order being delivered. A “Defective Product” is one which contains a material imperfection in the manufacture or design that renders the product less acceptable, useful or safe than reasonably expected, under the circumstances. If this is the case, we will gladly arrange collection via courier and send you a replacement at no cost to you.
Costume jewellery will change colour over time with wear and tear and various other aspects. To make the color last longer we suggest you keep your byCARA pieces away from
- dishwashing soap
- hair products
- jewellery cleaners
- other harsh chemicals
- Remove while exercising to avoid contact with sweat
Where stated, gold plated is a coat of gold over a lesser metal such as brass. It is still subject to color loss. A base metal such as steel or brass is dipped into a bath of electroplating solution, with a lump of solid gold. When an electric current is applied, a thin layer of gold is deposited on the metal. Since the plating is quite thin, the plate (and hence the color) can wear off but not as quickly as non-gold plated.
