CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT
Orders are made through the Jona Website in the manner described below:
- When you are ready to make a purchase, click on the ‘add to Shopping Bag’ button to place the Product you want to buy into your Shopping Bag. Then continue by clicking ‘purchase it’ to access our secure server to complete your Order.
- If it is your first purchase on the Jona Website, after you have completed the payment, you can choose to create an account with us using your email address, in which case you will be asked to create a password. The password must be kept secret and must not be disclosed or shared with anyone else. Your password will be stored in a secure system that will allow you to recover it in case of loss when making future purchases. Accordingly, you will be asked to provide your email address. The email address you use for the registration process must be the same as the email address that your order confirmation will be sent to.
- If you are already registered at the Jona Website, you can enter your login credentials to access your account.
- Please indicate your preferred delivery address (if there are shipping charges, they will be applied to the total amount and you will be able to verify the amount before sending the Order), confirm your address and enter your payment details. You can check and correct any errors in your order before sending it by clicking on the ‘Complete Purchase and Pay’ button.
- We recommend that you make sure that your order is correct before sending it. You will be responsible for the correctness of the Order you send to us. If you have any problems with your order or you have doubts of any kind, we will be happy to help and you can contact us by telephone at the number +39 0118123967, or by email at the address firstname.lastname@example.org. We will answer you and provide assistance as quickly as possible.

However, we remind you that, by clicking on the ‘Complete Purchase and Pay’ button, you assume the obligation to pay the price of the Product(s) if your order is accepted.
- After the confirmation email has been sent (“Order Confirmation”), we will verify whether we are able to execute your order. We will process the payment information provided by you to credit the payment for your Order.
The acceptance of your Order will be conditional upon payment being made and the confirmation by us in a second email (“Acceptance Email”) of the execution of your Order and shipment of the Product(s) to the delivery address provided by you. The message will be automatically sent to the email address you provided upon registration.
- You will receive an additional email notification as soon as we have delivered your package to the courier.
These General Conditions of Sale may be changed by Jona at any time. The version of the General Conditions of Sale in force at the time of conclusion of the contract of sale shall apply between Jona and the User.
The conclusion of the online contract of sale takes place upon payment for the Jona products based on the payment method chosen by the User from those available on our Website.
The online contract of sale for the products purchased on the Website is considered concluded when Jona receives payment from the User of the price set for those products as listed on the Website at the time of purchase.
Jona is not bound to Conditions of Sale other than these conditions, and has the right, without notice, to change the Jona products offered for sale on the Website, as well as their images and their characteristics.
The acceptance of these Conditions of Use by the User is essential for completion of the purchase of the Jona products.
Once the Contract has been concluded, Jona shall have the obligation to deliver the Products in accordance with the terms of the Contract.
- The Contract refers solely to the Product(s) whose dispatch has been confirmed through the sending of the Dispatch Email. We will not be required to supply additional Products included in any other order from you until the dispatch of those additional Products has been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Email.
- For added safety, please check the Confirmation Email and the Acceptance Email and immediately notify us if there are any errors.
- If there are any problems with your Order, you will be promptly contacted by us.
The validity of the contract of sale is subject to product availability. We undertake to report any non-availability of a product in the Website’s product list. However, we do not guarantee that the availability of the Jona products on the Website will be updated on a daily basis. If you purchase a product on our Website that turns out to be unavailable, we undertake to notify you within – at the most – 5 working days from the receipt of your order and we undertake to refund the full price paid including the amount paid by you for shipping (with no additional charge or fee of any kind to be borne by Jona).
The order contains all the essential elements of a contract of sale including the information required by law. Please check the purchase order in advance before you send it and check that the resulting confirmation email contains the correct information and matches the order made.
Once payment has been received, we will immediately prepare your product and dispatch it. For Products that are already available we usually need 2 working days to complete these preparations. For Products for which an ordinary modification has been requested (e.g., adjusting a ring size, bespoke engraving , lengthening a bracelet or a necklace) the time needed is a maximum of around 5 working days. For Products ordered with a special customisation, the times will vary depending on the type of work involved.
The products purchased will only be delivered after the payment has been made by you.
Shipping times vary from country to country and will be indicated in the order confirmation email sent by Jona to the Customer to the email address provided upon registration on the Website.

Rest of the World: 4-5 working days
Shipping is free for orders over €200.00 (or the equivalent in US$ at current exchange rates) to be delivered to the same delivery address.

PRICES AND PAYMENTS
Prices and shipping costs may be subject to change at any time, without affecting orders already confirmed by the sending of the Acceptance Email.
The prices are checked regularly, however, if we notice a change or a mistake in the price upon receipt of your order, we will contact you to confirm whether you still wish to continue with the purchase at the correct price. If you provide confirmation to that effect, please remember, however, that this does not result in any obligation for us to supply the Product(s) until the Acceptance Email confirming the Order has been sent.

For orders to countries outside the European Union, the prices of the Jona products stated on the Website do not include VAT and the related import duties, and these will be entirely at your expense. Jona may choose, at its discretion, to totally or partially refund the import duties, upon written agreement by email.

This fee is not attributable to us.

If you find any defects or damage, you must report themto us by email to email@example.com no later than 8 days from the day you received the Product.

If you prefer to have the Product(s) repaired or replaced, please contact us and we will replace the item without further charge where possible. In addition, we will refund the expenses incurred for returning the item or we will send our courier to collect the damaged or defective item.
In the event of lack of conformity of the Products pursuant to Article 129 of the Italian Consumer Code, the legal guarantees established in Articles 129 and following of the Italian Consumer Code shall apply. You are entitled to the restoration, without charge, of the conformity of the goods by repair or replacement. If the above remedies cannot be implemented, you have the right to an appropriate reduction of the price of the products, or to terminate the contract. These rights are considered waived if the potential lack of conformity is not notified within two months of the date when it was discovered. Our liability extends to the discovery of any lack of conformity within two years from delivery of the products. In any event, the right to bring an action to establish any lack of conformity, if not wilfully concealed by us, automatically ceases after twenty-six months from delivery.
Despite all the efforts made to present the Product(s) on the Website in the clearest and most realistic manner possible through the use of high-quality photographic equipment, some items may appear slightly larger or smaller than their actual size due to defects in the screen or the photographic techniques used. Other items may be represented on a larger scale compared to their actual size in order to highlight all their details, or on a smaller scale to show the object as a whole. In addition, the details shown on the screen (such as colours, patterns, textures, etc.) depend on the characteristics of the device used, and may therefore not accurately reflect the actual properties of the Products that will be delivered.
