The UK to US ring size conversion charts are provided for informational purposes and are accurate to approximately within 1/4 of a finger size only. We do not accept responsibility for the inaccurate use of this information.
We will either take your ring size in person (or explain how to use our ring sizer hire service) using industry standard Wheatsheaf Ring Sizers of either narrow or wide size. We will offer any sizing advice in good faith however the final responsibility of finger size choice lies with the customer as the fit is always a matter of personal preference.

DIAMONDS, GEmStones & Metal
Harriet Kelsall Jewellery Design Ltd only purchases diamonds from respectable dealers that adhere strictly to the Kimberley Process and every attempt is always made to ensure that diamonds are not sourced from countries that use the money to fund conflicts.
Diamond carat weights stated are within 0.05 carats of the exact weight to comply with FTC regulations.
Any geographical or origin provenance claims made in respect of gemstones and metal are made in good faith based on written statements from our suppliers and not laboratory testing. Our membership of the Responsible Jewellery Council requires that we have robust procedures and systems in place to verify these claims - more information is available on request.
Some coloured gemstones are heat treated to improve their colour and / or clarity. Aquamarine, citrine, tanzanite, and blue or clear zircon are routinely heat treated whilst agate, amber, carnelian, morganite, ruby, sapphire, smoky quartz, tourmaline and turquoise are commonly heat treated. Pale coloured pearls are likely to be bleached. It should be assumed that these gemstones supplied by us have been treated in this way unless we specify otherwise. Clear topaz is routinely treated with a small amount of irradiation and is then heated to give it a permanent blue colour that runs throughout the stone and opal is commonly treated with waxes or oils to stabilise the gemstone. Any further treatments are individually disclosed.
Opals can be made into a doublet or a triplet to add thickness, strength and weight to pieces otherwise thin or brittle. A section of the opal is backed with epoxy resin creating a doublet, and then sometimes topped with resin to create a triplet. If we have used a triplet or a doublet in your jewellery it will have been discussed with you.
Turquoise/amber/lapiz can be cut in to interesting shapes. Beads can be a composite material which is a treatment that involves a combining the ground or sections of gemstone which are then bonded with resin to create a smooth and even colour or for an interesting pattern or sometimes to improve durability.
Goldstone and Sunstone are a man-made glass material. They are not a naturally occurring gemstone.
More detailed information about coloured gemstone treatments is available on request.
We reserve the right to change these Terms & Conditions of use from time to time. If this happens, we will notify you by posting the new Terms & Conditions of use on the website. If you do not wish to be governed by the revised Terms & Conditions of use, please stop using the website.

We will respond initially within 48 hours confirming receipt of your complaint, taking note to record all of the details clearly.
We will investigate your complaint, inform you of our findings and, where we are at fault, try both to put things right and to review our process and procedures to avoid a similar situation.
The designer will work with you to resolve the issue and explain the solution. However, if you are still dissatisfied, it will be referred to the Head of Design or a member of our senior management team. They will review the complaint and work with you to resolve the issue.
In most instances a quick resolution can be found, however, if the investigation takes longer then a final response letter/ email confirmation will be sent to you within 4 weeks of initial receipt.
