Terms and Conditions
Welcome to Eco Wood Rings. We create and sell wooden rings subject to the following conditions.
Design and Colour Variation
All of our designs are handmade from natural materials and therefore no two rings will ever be the same, due to colour, tone and grain variations between the woods used. This variation is part of the charm of hand-worked and natural materials, and ensures that you will be purchasing a truly unique ring. All photos on the website are indicative only and are not of the exact ring that you will receive, unless stated for some In Stock rings.
Whilst the process used to create our bentwood rings retains the natural strength of the wood, a wooden ring will never be as hard as a metal band. The greatest determining factor to a bentwood ring’s lifespan is the care it receives on a regular basis. Please see our FAQs page for more information on ring strength, longevity and care.
Unless otherwise stated or requested, all of our bentwood rings will have a protective finish applied. We will refinish any of our rings in the future for a small charge to cover the costs involved in this process (currently £75).
Our metal rings with wood inlays should not require any more care or consideration than a standard metal ring. It's worth giving the wood some occasional TLC with some balm, but in most instances the natural oils from our hands take care of that too.
Prices do change occasionally and we would inform you prior to final payment if this is the case with your custom order. Orders are only passed on to our workshop for production once full payment has been received by us. For ring orders outside of the UK and Australia, prices do not include postage (see below).
Shipping and Handling
Once we have received payment, it will take between 6-8 weeks until your rings are ready, subject to availability of the chosen materials. This may be slightly longer for orders placed at peak times, although it can be quicker too. We will always do our utmost to bring your rings to you as quickly as possible without compromising on quality and care. For rush orders, we offer a priority production service which can reduce that time to 1-3 weeks (and currently costs £75 for a bentwood or carbon fibre ring and £100 for a metal ring with wood inlay)'.
All rings destined for UK addresses will be posted free of charge using Royal Mail Special Delivery. For orders outside of the UK, we will ship your rings to you via express courier. A charge of £35 is applicable for shipments within Europe, and £45 for the Rest of World. All shipping charges are calculated based on a flat rate regardless of the weight of each order or number of items bought.
For all orders sent to UK-based customers, 20% VAT is included in the price. VAT is also applied to all orders placed directly through our website. If you are based outside of the UK then please contact us so that we can help with your order by email/online invoice, with no VAT added. Please note that all international orders could be subject to import duties and taxes on arrival, which are the customer's responsibility.
We hope that you will be delighted with your wood ring. As all of our rings are made to order, orders cannot be cancelled once confirmed and we are also unable to accept returns. Please therefore choose your ring carefully, especially the size. If for any reason your ring doesn't fit, we can attempt to resize it for you (for bentwood and some metal rings with wood inlays only, it's not possible to resize carbon fibre rings, some titanium rings, steel rings or bentwood rings with metal liners), although this can normally be by a maximum of one whole size up or down. The current price for this service is £80 for a bentwood ring, or £100 for a metal ring with wood inlay. If the size of the ring is out by a greater amount than that, or if you have ordered a carbon fibre and wood ring, or another type of ring that cannot be resized, then we offer to take back the original ring and to remake the ring for you in the correct size at a heavily discounted price.
Defective goods may be returned for exchange, provided that they are returned to us within 15 working days of receipt, unworn and in their original packaging.
No returns are accepted without our prior authorisation by email.
We accept payment by all major credit and debit cards. In Stock rings and rings from our pre-designed Collections can be purchased direct through the website. For custom designs you will be sent an invoice for your order with payment instructions. We do require payment in full before commencing with orders.
