INTERNET ORDERS: 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

We aim to despatch all orders within 24 hours, Monday to Friday.  We do not post on weekends.  All orders placed after 10.00am on Friday may be posted on Monday.


Occasionally, one of your ordered items may not be in stock on the date of your order. If this happens, we will despatch all in-stock items.  The out-of-stock item will be put on back order if we expect it soon and will be despatched with no extra postage charges.  We will usually notify you by email to let you know if an item is out of stock. If the item is not expected soon, the item will be shown as "Out of Stock"  on your invoice and you will receive a refund or a store credit for that item.


We are sure that you will be pleased with your purchase from The Bead Store.  If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please return it to us within 14 days for a store credit or a refund (excluding postage and packaging charges).  Please notify us using the RETURN AN ITEM section of MY ACCOUNT if you wish to return an item. 

We do not exchange items - we will issue a store credit for the returned item and then you can re-order the item that you would like instead.

Due to EU regulations, all earring findings are non-refundable.


All returned items must be suitably packaged to ensure that they are not damaged in transit.  We will not refund items that are damaged during shipping.

We recommend that you return items using Royal Mail Recorded Delivery.  We will not issue a refund for items that are not received. 

Please use the correct postage for all returns.  Packages without the correct postage will not be accepted.


If an item is found to be damaged upon receipt, we will issue a store credit for the cost of the item or send a replacement (postage and packaging charges are non-refundable).  We require a photo of the damaged item via email prior to issuing a credit or a replacement.
