In either case, you will be required to provide the following information:

Finally, tick the “I accept the terms and conditions” box and click on “Validate payment” to finalise your order. By placing an order, you are submitting an offer to DAUPHIN to buy the products you have placed in your “Shopping Bag”

Prices and payment terms
Your order will be processed once DAUPHIN has received the full payment. Should the payment not be arrive in full, cleared and verified funds within 7 business days, your order will be cancelled.
What is included in the price?
Prices shown on the Website include UK sales tax, but do not include any local sales or other applicable taxes that may be chargeable outside the UK, shipping costs or any possible import duty.
Depending on the delivery country selected, prices will be shown either in EUR, GBP, or USD. Prices are provided for informational purposes and are not binding until such time as your order is accepted and the product delivered. Subject to applicable law, the prices given on this Website remain subject to change without notice and in particular (without limitation) we reserve the right to correct any pricing errors on the Website or adjust prices to deal with fluctuations in currency, tax, shipping, delivery and/or import costs.
For every purchase, the customer will receive a certificate of authenticity that guarantees the authenticity of the items purchased.
For no additional costs, customers can also ask for the following:
- a personalised note;
- an invoice where applicable;
- one rhodium treatment in the year following the date of your purchase: although you must come to one of our showrooms, in London or Paris and your chosen time/date is subject to availability.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the products we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the product's correct price at your order date is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount.
If the product's correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order. If we still process your order where a pricing error is obvious or should reasonably have been recognised as mispricing, we will inform you of the same, and without excluding or limiting your mandatory legal rights as a consumer under applicable law, you can elect to receive the product at the correct price or we will refund you the sums you have paid, subject to you returning the relevant products in a reasonable condition.
How can you pay?
You can pay by bank transfer or with one of the payment methods indicated on your order form.
If you choose to pay by credit or debit card, you represent that you are the authorised holder of the card. If you are a UK or an EU resident, DAUPHIN will not usually charge you for payments made by bank transfer or bank/credit card. Bank charges may be applicable for payments made by customers outside the EU although we reserve the right to apply or waive such charges at our discretion.
You can pay through our secured server online or via phone by requesting a call back by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How can you claim back the VAT?
If the delivery address is outside of the EU, products can usually be purchased excluding VAT.

Collect at the showroom
If you choose to come collect your item from our showroom, you will need to book an appointment during normal business hours prior to coming, either by e-mail or over the phone. When you come to collect, you will then be asked to present a copy of the order confirmation e-mail and also an identity document (such as a passport, credit card or driver's licence). Note that without these documents, the products will not be given to you.
A third party can collect the product, given that he has the order confirmation e-mail, an identity document, and a power of attorney signed by you. We would also ask to you to inform us in advance where you are sending a third party to collect a product on your behalf.
Subject to applicable law, we exclude any liability where you fail to receive a product, which in accordance with your instructions, we have given to a third party purporting to represent you.

For all products, you will be liable to pay any applicable export, import and customs duties to DAUPHIN in addition to the price, applicable taxes, delivery and other charges referred to above. DAUPHIN will then pay these amounts, as far as we reasonably can, although in some cases due to local law, you may still be liable for any locally applicable taxes, levies or duties. Our best estimate of the import duties or official charges payable will be given to you when we process your order, although we may have to adjust the final sum due since we have no control over the amounts that are levied by local customs authorities or agencies.
Time of delivery
Once we have the payment, production of your product will start and will take about 6-8 weeks. Once ready for despatch, delivery will then take about 3-4 working days, depending on your delivery address. These delivery times are for general guidance purpose only and DAUPHIN cannot be held responsible for exceeding them.
To the maximum extent legally permitted, DAUPHIN cannot be held responsible for any failure or delay to deliver any products arising from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including (without limit) issues with couriers or shipping, delays by customs authorities or similar administrative delays, accident, adverse weather, natural disaster, labour dispute, the imposition of sanctions or embargoes, war, terrorism, emergency travel restrictions or other external factors.
In all such cases, we will do all we reasonably can to fulfil your order as soon as possible but where delivery to your chosen destination becomes impossible or impracticable in our view, we may cancel your purchase and refund any amounts you have paid.
If you do not give us requested information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may not be able to fulfil your order or request. We will not be responsible for any delay or failure to supply a product, as requested, if this is caused by you giving us inaccurate information or not giving us all the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
