Why does my item look different from the image on the website?
All our crystals are unique and hand-picked just for you, so they may vary from the image you see on our site. Each crystal boasts its own healing and magical properties, which makes them so very amazing.
How should I care for my jewellery?
It’s best to remove your jewellery before showering, swimming, sleeping, washing your hands or applying lotion or perfume. Be careful to avoid tugging your pieces when putting them on or off. When not in use, store your jewellery in a cool, dry place, ideally in a box or pouch (like the one we supply with delivery).
Why should I cleanse my crystals?
Cleansing your crystals is important as crystals travel long distances to reach you, exposing the stone to many energies along the way. Of course, we only want good energy, right? When used in healing, stones are said to be able to absorb or dispel the negativity you're working to release. Cleansing and recharging your crystals is the only way to restore your stones to their natural state so they can fully serve their purpose.
How do I cleanse my crystals?
There are a few ways you can cleanse your crystals at home, including using running water, sunlight or moonlight, smoking, smudging, sound and using other crystals. Check out our Caring for Crystals page for more detailed information on each method.

What happens if my parcel is lost or damaged?
We’ll do what we can to help but we’re not liable for loss of parcels or damage during transit, as we have no control over the shipping process. Keep in mind that once items have left us, we’re unable to find out any extra information as we are not the addressee.
What happens if my parcel is returned before delivery?
Sometimes parcels can’t be delivered and end up back with us. This can happen if you’ve provided an incorrect or incomplete address, or if your parcel isn’t collected from your local post office within the stipulated timeframe. In these cases, no refunds will be provided for shipping costs and you’ll need to pay for re-delivery.
What do I do if I’m not happy with my item?
If for any reason you’re not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of receiving your item(s). Due to the nature of our products, we cannot accept returns on any products unless they are deemed faulty. This includes change of mind and customised items such as stamped letters or initials.
We can only accept items for return that are sent via tracking and well packaged to minimise damage in transit. By Eileen is not liable for packages lost or damaged during return shipping.
I’ve accidentally purchased the wrong item - can I return it?
Unfortunately, we are not liable for unread or misread information. Please ensure you read each product listing and choose carefully when making a purchase. Each listing has detailed information and measurements to help you choose.
By purchasing any of our items, you confirm that you accept the suitability of the product. It’s your responsibility to ensure you’ve read the product description before buying an item.

What if my item is faulty?
At By Eileen, we do our best to ensure that all products are inspected before delivery.
If you do receive a faulty item due to a manufacturing issue, send us a clear picture of the product within 48 hours. If it’s clear the item has a manufacturer’s fault, and it can be repaired, we’ll get you to send it back to us for the necessary repairs. Should the item be deemed unrepairable, we will organise a refund or replacement.
All our crystals are unique and hand-picked just for you, so they may vary from the images you see on our site. Each crystal boasts its own healing and magical properties which means we are unable to exchange due to change of mind.
All our pieces are delicate and therefore are important to be handled, stored and cleaned carefully. Please refer to “Product Information’ on how to care for your crystals and jewellery.

Can I return an item I bought on sale?
No. Unfortunately, only regular priced items may be returned or exchanged. This includes change of size. Please note that warranties are also not applicable to sale pieces due to heavily reduced prices.
How can I organise an exchange?
