We would advise you to seek information on these requirements from your local authorities.

Valérie Hangel textile creations are crafted using antique silks and should be worn with care and attention. It is advised that you store your jewelry in its original box or clutch bag.
The objects presented are made either by artisanal or semi-industrial production, meaning that there can be slight differences from one object to another. As such, slight differences which may be noticeable cannot be considered as faults or form the basis of a complaint.

As a rule, there is no way of returning any goods unless there has been an error with the order or the item is faulty (see below).
Faulty or non-compliant articles
Upon receipt of the goods, you are required to check the contents of the package. If the object has been damaged during transport or the article is not compliant (i.e. the item does not correspond to your order), Please inform us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org later than three days after you receive the package, and we will offer you an amicable solution. Once that timeframe has elapsed, no complaints will be considered.
Payment for gift certificates is to be done via postal or bank transfer. We will dispatch the voucher to the person named on the form that you will have filled in beforehand.

If the holder chooses an object that is less than the amount of the voucher, the difference will be held for them as credit to be used at a later date. No reimbursements are possible. Valid for one year from date of purchase.
