In the instance that an item is incorrectly marked and a customs fee is incurred, this will be passed onto the customer. This may also delay the returns process.

PLEASE NOTE: DELIVERIES DURING COVID19 OUTBREAK (UPDATED 01/01/2021)
In light of the latest UK government order to stay home, we have taken steps to ensure most of our small team are off site, working in separate spaces and are working to advised strict safety guidelines.
We are therefore limiting our order mailouts and will only be dispatching orders 2 to 3 times a week at this time - this is for the safety of our team. Therefore orders placed during this period may encounter processing and delivery delays as Royal Mail’s service is also experiencing delays in their delivery schedule. This is beyond our control.
As we offer free UK delivery we send all UK orders via Royal Mail 2nd class signed for mail which Royal Mail usually deliver within 3-4 working days from the postal date. However during this period this is taking longer than usual which is out of our control. Please kindly allow 7-10 working days for delivery.
If you require your order to be delivered by a specific date, please kindly contact us before you place your order to ensure we can accommodate your request.
Thank you for your patience and understanding at this challenging time,
Delivery for orders to UK mainland addresses is currently free of charge but is subject to change.
Orders to all other UK addresses cost £4.99 per order.
Each order is sent securely via Royal Mail Recorded 2nd class 'Signed For' delivery service. Royal Mail aims to deliver 2nd Class mail within 2-3 working days from the postage date but this cannot be guaranteed.
Larger orders or larger quantities of jewellery pieces per order and jewellery cases are sent via Royal Mail ‘Tracked' service or via courier depending on product size/weight/value/quantity.
Please kindly ensure you insert a daytime delivery address (PO Box addresses are not accepted) as all deliveries will require someone to sign for it.* Customers are solely responsible for ensuring that the delivery address they supply us with on their order form is correct and complete, including house numbers and full postcodes. The addresses that are noted on the order form are printed on the delivery address labels as they are - they are not checked or verified before the order is dispatched.
As the UK is no longer part of the EU, Royal Mail postal fees to Europe and worldwide have increased. As this is the case we have had no alternative but to increase our international delivery fees as follows:
Our delivery rate for orders with a total value of under GBP £50 to Europe: GBP £10.99 per order
Our delivery rate for orders with a total value of GBP £50-£199.00 to Europe: GBP £11.99 per order
Our delivery rate for orders with a total value of over GBP £200 to Europe: GBP £13.99 per order
REST OF THE WORLD
Our delivery rate for orders with a total value of under GBP £50 to ROW: GBP £11.99 per order
Our delivery rate for orders with a total value of GBP £50- £199.00 to ROW: GBP £13.99 per order
Our delivery rate for orders with a total value of over GBP £200 to ROW: GBP £15.99 per order
Please Note: Due to new Brexit rules & regulations, as the UK is no longer part of the EU, orders purchased via our website that are to be delivered to addresses in Europe are subject to additional checks and customs fees. All import Customs duty and taxes that may be due on your order in the country of destination are the sole responsibility of the customer. This also applies to all orders delivered to countries outside of the UK. Please consider this before you place your order.
All orders are sent securely via Royal Mail Recorded ‘International Signed’ or ‘International Tracked & Signed’ (where possible) delivery. We will provide you with the Royal Mail tracking number for your order by automated email as soon as your order has been dispatched.
Please kindly ensure you insert a daytime delivery address (PO Box addresses are not accepted unless order is being delivered to an address in the UAE where it is mandatory as well as the full delivery address) as all deliveries will require someone to sign for it.*
Customers are solely responsible for ensuring that the delivery address they supply us with on their order form is correct and complete, including house numbers and full postcodes. The addresses that are noted on the order form are printed on the delivery address labels as they are - they are not checked or verified before the order is dispatched. Customers are also solely responsible for checking the rules and regulations of the postal service in the country of destination of their order as each countries rules and advice differs. Bycecelux is not responsible or liable for orders not being delivered due to customers not providing sufficient delivery information to ensure successful delivery in their country of destination.
When orders are sent to another country, your parcel is often handled by more than one postal service. When we send a parcel abroad, the actual delivery of the item will be the responsibility of the local postal service in the country that the order is being sent to. Delays can often be caused by Customs checks, which can sometimes take up to 1-2 weeks. Bycecelux ltd cannot be held responsible for delays caused by Customs and is unable to release orders from Customs clearance.
*Please Note: If no one is at the delivery address as stated on your order at the time of delivery and able to sign for it, Royal Mail / your local postal service will leave a “Whilst You Were Out” card with instructions of which mail depot to collect it from. If you do not collect it from the depot by the deadline date stated on the card it will be returned to us. If this occurs, we will contact you to rearrange delivery and you will be required to pay an additional postage fee in order for it to be resent to you.
Bycecelux cannot be held responsible for goods that are lost or delayed in transit.
For orders not received but tracked as being delivered - This usually happens when orders are delivered to places of work. In some cases, your item might have been delivered to a post room or colleague within your company and someone else will have signed for it. You can check the signature of the person that has signed for the parcel, by entering your tracking number we provide you with on the Royal Mail website. Please note that we do not refund or replace items that are tracked and confirmed as being ‘Delivered’. For this reason, we always recommend that you get items delivered to your home address.
Occasionally Royal Mail may deliver your package to a neighbour if you are not home at the time of delivery. If your order is tracked as being delivered and you have not received it please check with your neighbours before contacting us and if they do not have the package, please contact your local Royal Mail sorting office to help as they should have more information on its whereabouts.
If your delivery has been delayed, please use the tracking number noted on the email notification we sent you to inform you that your order was dispatched to enable you to locate it with Royal Mail.
We cannot refund or replace lost orders until 20 WORKING days (excluding weekends and public holidays) after the dispatch date (25 days for International orders) have passed – This is the set time limit that Royal Mail classes packages as being ‘Lost’ and will only look into it from this date onwards therefore we cannot report and/or enquire about any undelivered orders until then.
