By placing an order through our Points of Sale, you represent and warrant that you are a customer acting as a bona fide end-user purchasing for your own or another person's personal use and that you are not delivering, selling, distributing or purchasing our products or services for commercial purposes.
We are committed to ensuring that each product meets our strict quality standards and that it has passed all of our tests, both technical and aesthetic.
Our jewels are guaranteed against the defects of conformity & redhibitory defects of manufacture, under the conditions envisaged in articles 1641 to 1649 of the civil code, and L217-4, 5 and 12 of the code of consumption.
Article L. 217-4 of the Consumer Code: The seller is required to deliver goods that conform to the contract and is responsible for any defects in conformity that exist at the time of delivery. He is also responsible for defects in conformity resulting from the packaging, the assembly instructions or the installation when the latter has been put at his charge by the contract or has been carried out under his responsibility.
Article L. 217-5 of the Consumer Code: To be in conformity with the contract, the goods must :
1° Be fit for the purpose usually expected of similar goods and, where appropriate :
- correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities that the seller presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;
- have the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect in view of the public statements made by the seller, by the producer or his representative, particularly in advertising or labelling;
2° Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the attention of the seller and accepted by the latter.
Article L. 217-12 of the Consumer Code: The action resulting from the lack of conformity is prescribed by two years from the delivery of the goods.
Article 1641 of the Civil Code: The seller is bound by the warranty for hidden defects of the thing sold which make it unfit for the purpose for which it was intended, or which so diminish this use that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have given a lower price, if he had known about them.
Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the Civil Code: The action resulting from redhibitory defects must be brought by the buyer within two years of the discovery of the defect.
This guarantee covers conformity and manufacturing defects but does not cover theft or damage caused by misuse of the jewel. Any breakage or loss of stones or pearls, any deformation or destruction of the product due to external shocks or mishandling are not covered by the guarantee but may give rise to an estimate and repair subject to technical feasibility.
- AUTHENTICITY CARD
A card guaranteeing the authenticity of the VEVER jewel purchased is issued when the jewel is purchased, either on our website or in our showroom.
For any jewel with a diamond of 0.5ct or more, a certificate drawn up by an independent gemmological certification laboratory will also be given to you.
