Compose by Clogau® DELIVERY
Compose by Clogau® engagement rings are bespoke items, made-to-order and as such have a lead time of 6 weeks. Your Compose by Clogau® Retail Partner will be able to confirm the lead time for your specific bespoke ring depending on the combinations and variations you choose. We will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver the goods within the times indicated. However, where delivery times and dates are given, they are for general guidance only and we will not be held liable for late delivery of goods caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.
Compose by Clogau® STANDARDS
All Compose by Clogau® engagement and wedding rings are hand polished and finished. All diamonds are hand selected for purity and colour. Diamond weights quoted are the average carat weight per piece and the primary stone in engagement rings is specified as such and is supplied with a GIA certificate to guarantee its status, unless otherwise indicated and this weight can fluctuate upwards only.
Clogau have carefully selected three colour choices for customers to choose from for their diamonds; D is our best; G is very close to the best and I is for those on a tighter budget who still want a beautiful and white diamond. Diamonds are graded from FL (flawless) to I3 (not recommended). When Compose by Clogau® customers start composing their ring they can choose from SI1 (slightly included), VS2 (very slightly included) and VS1 (very slightly included, Clogau’s best) diamonds. The ideal carat weight for an engagement ring will depend on the size of the wearers’ finger and their budget. All diamonds used on Compose by Clogau® rings are good cut proportions and as such will achieve a wonderful sparkle and brilliance.
For every item containing multiple diamonds, we list the average weight of the diamonds in the shank as well as the primary stone in engagement rings which comes with a GIA certificate to guarantee its status. Where we state the total diamond carat weight, this may vary plus 0.05 carats only from the weight stated. Clogau is committed to offering high-quality diamonds. We share the public’s concern regarding conflict-free diamonds and we only purchase diamonds which comply completely with the Kimberley Process requirements.
Compose by Clogau® APPROPRIATE WEAR
The beauty of Compose by Clogau® fine jewellery is that each piece is designed to the finest detail to really capture the essence of the story behind it. For example a wedding ring is designed to be worn every day and can cope with hard wear and tear; on the other hand a delicate engagement ring will not fare as well if subjected to the same wear as a wedding ring. It is also important to remember that harsh chemicals will affect all jewellery if regularly exposed to it. All fine jewellery, metal and diamond rings must be worn with care and if expected to last a life time should be removed when undertaking manual tasks such as gardening. All settings and diamonds should be checked on an annual basis as part of the Clogau ‘Clean, Care, Protect’ warranty agreement.
Compose by Clogau® MEASUREMENTS AND WEIGHTS
