For enamel pieces it is really important that this is not worn in the shower, as the water can affect the finish and cause it to peel off. Little by Little recommends that you also remove your jewellery when swimming, during exercise or when doing heavy duty things. As Gold Plate is a surface finish, when it comes into contact with water, perfume, other surfaces or objects it can scratch and wear away the surface. It is best to clean your silver jewellery with a soft silver polish cloth. For gold plated items it is best to use a gold polish cloth.
With every purchase of Little by Little jewellery, they donate sufficient funds to enable a disadvantaged woman to train at Luminary bakery for a day. Luminary Bakery – a London based charity that provides opportunities for women to build a future for themselves. They have a safe and professional environment where women can grow holistically – encouraging ambition, restoration and second chances.
Little by Little collections are designed by Annabel Cox in the UK and created by a well-established jewellery producer in Lima, Peru.
Each and every order will arrive to you with a unique box and gift bag. All of the packaging is 100% recycled and 100% recyclable.
Jewellery brand Little by Little's key sustainable values lie in championing a responsible social and environmental supply chain. Not only does the company want to create beautiful jewellery, they also care about making a positive impact through their production and packaging. The brand has received press attention, such as being featured in the Sunday Times Best Sustainable Christmas Gifts round-up of 2020.
“Little by Little aims to benefit those that create, produce and ultimately purchase the jewellery.”
Friends Annabel Cox and Georgina Fuggle – an award-winning ethical jewellery designer and a food stylist/cookery book author, respectively – started ethical jewellery brand Little By Little with the aim to run a business with a difference: to look beyond our own comfortable bubbles and see into the worlds of those around us in need. The idea was born, over coffee, with two friends dreaming of ways to do business generously and raise funds for charity whilst doing so. The product followed, a happy combination of the friends' passions.
Traceable material sources remain a challenge when making ethical jewellery. By their nature, mined elements are shrouded in secrecy and controversy, which has meant that to date, Little By Little's collections have been limited to silver and gold, as opposed to stones.
All Little By Little Jewellery is created by an established jewellery producer in Lima, Peru. The factory has been running for 25 years and employs 350 people. From its inception its aim was always to bring opportunity and employment which it does by giving jobs to people with no prior technical experience, training them in the art of jewellery. The founders frequently visit their production house to ensure that all individuals in their supply chain are treated fairly. They can verify that it is a well-equipped, safe and spacious place to work. The founders also know the team who make their jewellery personally.
Championing transparent, responsible supply chains is important to the brand, and they hope to achieve B Corp certification by the end of 2023. The brand also works with a charitable partner, Luminary Bakery –a London-based charity that provides opportunities for women to build a future for themselves. Encouraging ambition, restoration and second chances, they use baking as a tool to take women on a journey to employability and entrepreneurship.
All Little By Little packaging is created in a small paper studio in East London.
As silver and gold are by their nature vegan, all the jewellery created by the brand is vegan-friendly.
As a marketplace, we sell many beautiful vegan and sustainable brands – but we don’t hold stock, so when you order a product from us, the item is shipped from the brand directly. This eliminates needless carbon emissions and use of resources from not having to have the item packaged and shipped to us, and then repackaged and shipped out again to the customer; and not having to run major warehouse operations in addition to those of our brands.
If you have purchased multiple items from different brands at the same time, each item will be sent separately and directly from each individual brand.
We manage all customer communications, so if you have any questions or issues with delivery of your item, please contact us at email@example.com.
Our brands usually dispatch items within 1-2 days of your order. Shipping can take between 3-10 days depending on where you are based and where the brand is based. If an item is made to order, this will be clearly indicated in the product's description.
Delivery Destinations & Costs
We currently ship to the following territories: UK & Europe, North America (US, Canada, and Mexico), Australia, New Zealand, Israel, UAE, Hong Kong, and Japan.
Note: Each of our brands select which countries in the world they deliver to, and they set their own delivery costs for each country (which will vary). If this is not clearly stated on the individual product page, then you will be able to check in the shopping bag before proceeding to payment.
Our brands also select their own couriers, which may also differ by country.
Our Prices, VAT & Import Taxes
If you order an item that ships to you from within your own country, there will be no additional taxes or fees on receipt of goods.
If you order an item that ships to you from another country, your order may be subject to VAT and/or import duties, which are the result of international trade agreements between countries and unfortunately not within our control.
Please note the following scenarios:
Customers within the UK
All products shipped to you from within the UK already include VAT, and there will be no further charges.
Products shipped to you from outside the UK under £135 will also already include VAT, and there will be no further charges.
Products shipped from outside the UK over £135 may be liable to import duties on delivery of the item.
Customers within the EU
All products shipped to you from within your own country already include VAT, and there will be no further charges.
Products shipped to you from outside your country under 150 Euros will also already include VAT, and there will be no further charges.
Products shipped from outside your country over 150 Euros may be liable to import duties on delivery of the item.
Customers in the rest of the world, including USA & Canada:
The majority of regions outside UK & EU do not have VAT or import duties that apply except for very high value orders – however this differs by country, so please check with your local customs office if you aren't sure.
Payment of VAT & Import Duties
As the customer, you are responsible for paying any duties that apply in your region. These will be charged at point of delivery, and payable through the courier. Please note, you will be required to pay any relevant VAT & duties before your order will be released to you.
Depending on the courier used by the brand, you will have either an option to pay any additional fees online by following the tracking number available once your order is shipped, or directly to your courier upon delivery.
Unfortunately, if you fail to pay these charges and the parcel is returned to sender, we will not be able to refund your original shipping costs, although we will of course refund the cost of your item, when it has been received by the brand.
A delivery confirmation email from Immaculate Vegan will be sent to you as soon as the order has been sent. This email will contain a tracking number and the date the brand dispatched the item.
If you want to know the status of your delivery, please use the tracking number and link in this delivery confirmation email. This is the easiest and quickest way for you to get this information.
If a brand is experiencing a high volume of orders, or other factors such as poor weather or postal strikes, delivery may be delayed by a few days.
If you experience a delivery issue which has not been resolved by the courier, please contact us and we will do our best to resolve this.
Incorrect Address Details
Please ensure your address is completed correctly and a valid phone number is available at order. Immaculate Vegan does not take responsibility for lost or undelivered items if the address is incorrect.
If your order is returned to the brand, the cost of redelivery must be paid before it is despatched again.
Please see our Returns Policy
We hope you love the items you buy from us; we take the utmost care in ensuring our brands and products are of a high quality. Additionally, as shipping goods has an environmental impact, we hope to minimise returns by giving you as much information as possible about each product.
However, we understand that from time to time things might not be quite what you expected. So here is our policy and instructions if you ever need to return a product.
How do I request a return?
Immaculate Vegan is a multi-brand marketplace. That means that we offer products from different brands based in different countries. So you need to return your item directly to the brand supplier, not to Immaculate Vegan.
If you want to return an item, you need to inform Immaculate Vegan, not the brand. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long do I have to return my order?
You have 14 days to inform us of your desire to return an item, and then a further 14 days from the date you notify us to send back the item.
Do you offer free returns?
Unfortunately because they are small, independent businesses, the vast majority of our brands are NOT able to offer free shipping – it would simply make trading unfeasible. An exception is Will's Vegan Store which does offer free returns and exchanges. Please still contact email@example.com to make a return or exchange for Wills, and we will process this for you.
Please note that any delivery costs or import taxes you may have had to pay to receive an item cannot be refunded by us upon the return of that item.
What can be returned?
Any item – regular priced or sale price – may be returned and refunded. This includes items purchased with a promotional or discount code.
However, any custom-made / made to order products cannot be returned and refunded.
What if an item is faulty?
If an item is faulty, the brand is responsible for paying for costs of returning the item. Please inform us if you receive a faulty item as soon as possible, by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will ensure you either have a refund or an exchange.
How should I send back my return?
Please ensure you package your return securely to prevent any damage to the items or boxes.
You are responsible for any item being returned until it arrives back at the supplier. We recommend a signed-for and tracked delivery with proof of postage. This is to ensure that if an item goes missing, it can be tracked.
For non-domestic, international returns, please ensure the package is clearly marked as a return, i.e. 'RETURNED GOODS – FAILED SALE'. We ask that you also use a Customs Declaration (like a CN22 form) that allows you to formally mark the package as Returned Goods. Otherwise the brand will incur import charges that you – the customer – will be liable for. This amount will be deducted from your refund as well as any shipping costs. It may be advisable to take a photo of your package in the event of any dispute.
In what condition will you accept returns?
All items returned must be in their original condition – unused, unworn, unwashed, in the original packaging and with original labels and any hygiene stickers attached. All beauty products must be unopened, with all seals in place. Unfortunately, our suppliers will not be able to accept any items that fail to meet these criteria.
Processing your return
Once your returned item is received and inspected, the supplier will notify us, and we will then send you an email confirming this.
If your return is approved, your refund will be processed. We aim to refund you as soon as we can, once your returned item has been processed by the supplier.
We are legally obliged to ensure your money is refunded within 14 working days of receipt of the returned goods in a saleable condition.
Please note that original shipping costs are not refundable unless the delivered item is faulty.
Most of our brand partners allow exchanges, although some only offer a return and refund. If you wish to have an exchange, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you have had to pay import duty on a purchase, then you may be able to reclaim that from your local tax office, if you return the goods. Immaculate Vegan is not responsible for any additional customs and taxes applied to an order.
Returns & Damages
Immaculate Vegan is not liable for any items damaged or lost during delivery. If this does occur, please let us know and we will contact the brand and then follow up with you.
Cancellation policy and process
You can cancel an order that you have paid for if it has not yet been dispatched. To do this, please notify us by using the Contact Us form on our website or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you cancel an order that has been dispatched you are obliged to pay the cost of the return shipping. Note: we are unable to refund this or the original shipping fee.
We aim to process your refund within than 5 days of receipt of goods.
Any custom-made or made-to-order products cannot be cancelled.
This policy applies to products purchased from the www.immaculatevegan.com website only.
If you have any questions about returns or cancellations that we haven’t answered, please email us at email@example.com.
