Last Modified: March 25th 2021
THIS DOCUMENT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS CONDITIONS, LIMITATIONS, AND EXCLUSIONS THAT MIGHT APPLY TO YOU. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY.
THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.
BY PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FROM THIS WEBSITE, YOU ACCEPT AND ARE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
YOU MAY NOT ORDER OR OBTAIN PRODUCTS OR SERVICES FROM THIS WEBSITE IF YOU (A) DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, (B) ARE NOT THE OLDER OF (i) AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE OR (ii) LEGAL AGE TO FORM A BINDING CONTRACT WITH Azar Gems Company S.A.L., OR (C) ARE PROHIBITED FROM ACCESSING OR USING THIS WEBSITE OR ANY OF THIS WEBSITE’S CONTENTS, GOODS OR SERVICES BY APPLICABLE LAW.
These terms and conditions (these “Terms“) apply to the purchase and sale of products and services through azargems.com (the “Site“) or by telephone at +961 4 717476 (together with the Site, the “Sales Channels“). Sales concluded through physical points of sale (such as our retail boutiques) or third parties (such as authorized retailers) are not subject to these Terms. These Terms are subject to change by Azar Gems Company S.A.L. (referred to as “us“, “we“, or ” our” as the context may require) without prior written notice at any time, in our sole discretion. The latest version of these Terms will be posted on this Site, and you should review these Terms before purchasing any product or services that are available through this Site. Your continued use of this Site after a posted change in these Terms will constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such changes.
By placing an order through the Sales Channels, you represent and warrant that you are a bona fide end-user customer purchasing for your own or another’s personal use and will not deliver, sell or otherwise distribute our products or purchase our products or services for commercial purposes.
Product availability & quantity
All orders placed through the Sales Channels are subject to availability and acceptance of such orders by us. For information about the order process, please refer to our Order Process section below.
Quantity limits may apply in relation to orders for certain products. We reserve the right to refuse at any moment in time, without prior notice, orders exceeding a certain number of authorized products.
Account registration & guest checkout
To place an order, you may either register and create an online account, or place an order as a guest without creating an online account by selecting the “Guest Checkout” option. Where you place an order as a guest, we may still create an account on our internal systems to record your purchase(s).
Personalization services (for example engraving) or other services may be available on a selection of products. If you wish to have your product personalized, please provide the details contacting Your Dedicated Customer Service at email@example.com .
We reserve the right to withhold or refuse acceptance of any order for personalized products, or with a message card, that contains language that is objectionable, unlawful or contrary to our policies. You are responsible for ensuring that any wording you provide for personalizing products is correct.
In addition, orders for personalized products cannot be cancelled and such products that have been personalized in any way or otherwise made to your bespoke specifications cannot be returned to us for exchange or refund as described in the Return Policy. This does not affect your consumer rights (please see the Manufacturer’s guarantee and your legal consumer rights section for further information).
The order process of the Site will include the following:
- Add to Shopping Bag: Once you have chosen a product, you may place this product in your shopping bag. You may then decide to continue shopping for other products and add them to your shopping bag (subject to availability and quantity limits). Placing an item in your shopping bag does not guarantee availability for purchase, which is not confirmed until you receive a written Confirmation of Order & Shipment.
- Guest/My Account Checkout: When you are ready, you then proceed to “Checkout”, either as a guest or through your registered account. You may also remove one or several products you have selected from the shopping bag as part of the checkout process.
- Delivery, Review and Payment: As part of the checkout process, you add and review your order details and personal information (including e-mail, shipping address, billing address and payment information). You should carefully check and confirm all details on the order summary page before placing your order.
- Placing of Order: You then check the relevant box and place your order.
In the case of an order being placed through Your Dedicated Customer Service, our ambassador will walk you through the steps above and verbally ask you to confirm the details of your order.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to refuse, cancel and terminate orders at any time on reasonable grounds. For example, we may refuse, terminate or cancel your order if there is an ongoing dispute concerning payment of a prior order or if we suspect, in our sole discretion, that you have engaged in (i) fraudulent activities; or (ii) have otherwise violated these Terms.
Prices and shipping costs
All prices shown on the product pages of the Site or quoted by Your Dedicated Customer Service exclude shipping costs and taxes unless otherwise stated.
With some exceptions, the applicable currency will be USD.
Shipping costs, if any, are described in the Shipping Policy below. Shipping costs are not stated on the product pages but will be added to the product price after you have chosen your delivery options. These costs will be summarized before you are asked to confirm and place your order and will also be reflected in our email correspondence with you once you have chosen your delivery options.
We reserve the right to modify prices and delivery costs at any time without prior notice.
We take reasonable care that the prices of products and delivery costs are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered into the system or communicated to you via Your Dedicated Customer Service. However, it is always possible that, despite our reasonable efforts, some of the products offered through our Sales Channels or delivery costs may be incorrectly priced. If any of the products you place an order for or any delivery costs are incorrectly priced, we will contact you as soon as possible to inform you of this error. If we are unable to contact you using the contact details you have provided during the order process, we will notify you in writing.
We accept the methods of payment identified as part of the order process via the Sales Channels. Depending upon the means of payment, we may require additional information, including specific forms of identification.
When ordering on the Site, you will need to enter your payment details on the appropriate form. In the case of an order placed by telephone, you will need to communicate to Your Dedicated Customer Service your complete payment details. All payment card holders are subject to validation check and authorization by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorize payment to us, you will need to contact your card issuer directly to solve this problem.
Other payment methods may also be subject to validation checks and authorization by the payment system providers as well. You expressly authorize us to perform security checks, where we deem necessary, to transmit or to obtain information (including any updated information) about you to or from third parties from time to time, including but not limited to your payment card details, to authenticate your identity, to validate your payment card, to obtain an initial payment card authorization and to authorize individual purchase transactions.
The full amount of your purchase will typically be charged on your payment card when the order is placed, at which point you will be sent a Confirmation of Order.
We may accept bank wire transfer for orders at our sole discretion. We do not charge a fee for bank wire transfers for orders made through the Sales Channels or Your Dedicated Customer Service, however, some financial institutions may charge a fee for using a bank wire transfer. We require that all bank wire transfer orders placed by telephone be confirmed through an order approval process. We may acknowledge a bank wire transfer order, but the order will not be processed until the payment has been received and confirmed by us by e-mail. If your wire transfer payment is not credited into our bank account within seven (7) days after you have placed your order, your order will be cancelled.
Confirmation of Order
Once you have made your choice and your order has been placed through the Sales Channels, you will receive a written Confirmation of Order (by e-mail or otherwise confirming the details of your order together with an order reference number). Please make sure that you save this order reference number for any future enquiries regarding your order. This Confirmation of Order is not an acceptance of your order. To confirm the order, we will conduct its usual credit, anti-fraud, security and related legal checks and, if acceptable, will then process your order. Upon receipt of the Confirmation of Order, it is your responsibility to review it and confirm that it accurately reflects your intended order. If you have any questions or concerns or if the Confirmation of Order does not reflect your intentions, you should contact Your Dedicated Customer Service promptly.
We only accept orders for delivery to the country or countries that are identified during the Order Process. Please note that we do not ship to certain addresses, such as military, certain restricted areas, pick-up points, or PO boxes. For further information, please contact Your Dedicated Customer Service.
Delivery of Order & Shipment
Upon shipment of your order, we will send you a Shipment Notification in writing (by e-mail or otherwise). This Shipment Notification constitutes our acceptance of your order and indicates the existence of a binding sales contract.
We will use reasonable efforts to ensure delivery by the carrier within the estimated delivery lead time from the date of our written Shipment Notification and in any event within fifteen (15) days after that date, except if your purchase relates to a product or service that we have explained to you will take additional time to deliver, for example in the case of products or services that we personalize or produce to your specifications.
If delivery of products is delayed by an event outside our control, we will inform you as soon as possible and will use reasonable efforts to minimize the effect of the delay. If we do not deliver within ninety (90) days from the date of the written Shipment Notification or any other time limit as indicated by us, you may contact Your Dedicated Customer Service to cancel the relevant order and get a refund of any sums you pre-paid us for any products which you have not received.
In any event, your sole remedy for any failure by us to deliver the order to you shall be your right to cancel the relevant order and receive a refund of sums you pre-paid us for any products which you have not received.
When estimating your delivery time, please allow time for credit approval, address verification, security checks and order processing. Please note that delivery is always subject to receiving your full payment.
We will require a handwritten or electronic signature by you, or a person at the nominated delivery address (unless arranged by you otherwise), to confirm the delivery of each product, at which point risk and responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example, as a gift), then you understand and accept that evidence of a signature by such recipient (or a person at the delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfilment of the sales contract by Azar Gems Company S.A.L. and transfer of responsibility to the recipient in the same way as if the product had been delivered to you. We reserve the right to deliver products only to the person who is the intended recipient of the order as stated on the label of the parcel and to request ID check for verification purposes at the time of delivery for certain categories of products. Please contact Your Dedicated Customer Service for more information.
When ordering products via the Sales Channels, you will receive an invoice that will be sent to you in writing (to your e-mail address as a PDF attachment or otherwise).
Returns and Exchanges
Please refer to the Return Policy for your rights of return and exchange.
Manufacturer’s guarantee and your legal consumer rights
We are committed to ensuring that each product strictly complies with our quality criteria and that it has passed all our controls, both technical and aesthetic.
If you wish to repair a product, please contact Your Dedicated Customer Service for more information.
In your capacity as consumer, you may have legal rights under the applicable law of governing the sale of consumer goods; those legal rights are not affected by these Terms.
The following complimentary services will be proposed, free of charge, by the Sales Channels:
All orders will be shipped with the exclusive Azar Gems packaging, together with a Azar shopping bag (where applicable).
Engraving may be available on specific products, and offered only through sales transactions completed through Your Dedicated Customer Service.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim and exclude all other terms, conditions and warranties in relation to the products and Sales Channels whether express or implied by statute or otherwise or arising from any previous course of dealing or usage or trade practice.
Nothing in these Terms limits or excludes our liability for any liability which cannot be limited or excluded by applicable law. Subject to the preceding sentence, our aggregate liability to you under these Terms for any order whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages shall in no event exceed the one hundred percent (100%) of the price of the product(s) in your order.
Please note that in some jurisdictions consumer protection laws may not allow certain exclusions or limitation of warranties or liabilities, and consequently some of the above exclusions and limitations may not apply.
If any provision, or part of a provision, of these Terms is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision shall be deemed not to form part of these Terms, and the legality, validity or enforceability of the remainder of the provisions of these Terms shall not be affected, unless otherwise required by operation of applicable law.
These Terms (and associated terms incorporated by reference) constitute the entire agreement between you and us in relation to the order of products or services, and replace and extinguish all prior agreements, draft agreements, arrangements, undertakings, or collateral contracts of any nature made by the parties, whether oral or written, in relation to such subject matter.
We are not responsible for any failure or delay in performing or complying with our obligations under these Terms which arises from any cause beyond our reasonable control.
The waiver by us of a breach of any provision of these Terms will not operate to be interpreted as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.
This contract is between us and you. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
