Shipping & Returns
RETURNS & EXCHANGES
We check and package all of our items to ensure they are in perfect condition before we send them.
Pieces of Eight products are all handmade by our artists, so there will be inherent quirks and natural imperfections due to the way products are crafted. Please be sure to select your items carefully, as we can only offer refunds in the case that a product is faulty.
We can offer exchanges or resizing (at a cost) if you order the wrong size - within 7 days of instore purchase or within 7 days of receiving your item via post. All exchanges need to be unworn and returned to Pieces of Eight Gallery (Shop 27, Royal Arcade, Melbourne) in the same condition and packaging as it was received.
If you return something to us that is faulty, we will credit the shipping cost back to you. If you need to return or exchange an item, please email us.
We will always endeavour to ensure items in the Pieces of Eight online store are in stock.
As most of our pieces are one-offs, multiple orders may have been placed on a particular item and we may run out of stock; in this instance we will contact you within two business days to arrange a refund or for the artist to re-make a piece for you which will take a little longer.
PRICING & PAYMENT
Pieces of Eight prices are shown in Australian dollars (AUD) and all online payments will be processed in Australian dollars. The amount billed to your credit card or debited from your bank account may differ slightly to the price shown at the checkout due to the currency conversion and any bank fees you may incur.

Items entering a foreign country are subject to customs inspection and the assessment of duties and taxes in accordance with the national laws of that country. As the buyer you are responsible for all duties and taxes incurred.

PICK UP SERVICE
Some items are too fragile, heavy or costly to be shipped and will therefore only be available to collect in person from Pieces of Eight Gallery (Shop 27 Royal Arcade, 335 Bourke Street, Melbourne). When a product cannot be shipped, a small note is displayed on the product page. If pick-up from the Pieces of Eight showroom isn't an option and you really need a non-shippable item delivered to you instead, email us direct at email@example.com and we will give you a quote for a specialised courier to get your item to you, at your own cost.
Pieces of Eight can also provide an independent valuation for your order. This is especially handy for insurance purposes for special items like engagement and wedding rings. The cost for our independent valuations is $110 AUD and includes a certificate and images of the piece for your records.
If you would like a purchase valuation to accompany your order, please
call the gallery on +61 479 154 790 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All items purchased from Pieces of Eight will come beautifully presented in our signature packaging.
