3. Placing an Order 


To be able to buy Products you must:

• read and accept these Sales Terms;
• provide your name and address, phone number, email address, payment details and other required information; 
• provide an eligible delivery address (see below for further details); and
• be legally capable of entering into binding contracts be the owner or authorized holder of a valid debit/credit card to buy the products if paying with a debit/credit card.

You may place an order by clicking on the "ADD TO BAG" button and proceeding to the checkout page.

You will be provided with an opportunity to review your order(s), read and accept these Sales Terms, check the total price of your order(s) and the information you have provided and correct any input errors before confirming your order(s).

The KOCHUT website currently ships to all addresses within Great Britain and Northern Ireland excluding hotels, hostels, prisons, P.O. Boxes and BFPO (British Forces Post Office) addresses. Unfortunately the KOCHUT website does not deliver to the Channel Islands.

Our terms and conditions apply to all written and telephone orders. Online orders are subject to our general terms and conditions available at the time of ordering. All offers and promotions in advertising materials and in the online shop are valid only while stocks last. Deviating regulations do not apply; We hereby expressly disagree with such. All ancillary agreements must be in written form.

4. Order Processing and Contract Formation

Once you have submitted and confirmed your order(s) using the KOCHUT website, AURORA will send an email to the email address you provided acknowledging receipt of your order(s) ("Order Receipt Confirmation") and setting out details of the ordered Product(s).

AURORA may choose not to accept any order in AURORA's sole discretion including without limitation in the case of pricing errors, unusual orders and orders which AURORA suspects are not placed in good faith.

After receiving your order(s), AURORA will check that the relevant Product(s) is (are) in stock. A contract for the sale of Products between you and AURORA will only be formed when AURORA emails you confirming that all or part the Product(s) is/are still available and has/have been dispatched ("Shipment Confirmation").

The contract is formed on AURORA sending the Shipment Confirmation whether or not you receive such email.

The contract for the sale of Products will relate only to those Products whose dispatch has been confirmed in the Shipment Confirmation. AURORA will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until the dispatch of such Products has been confirmed in a separate Shipment Confirmation.

In the Order Receipt Confirmation you will receive a copy of these Sales Terms, however you are encouraged to download, save and/or print a copy of your Order Receipt Confirmation and these Sales Terms for your records.

If you would like to amend or cancel your order before you have received your Shipment Confirmation, you must contact the AURORA Customer Care Team as soon as possible. Whilst AURORA will always attempt to amend or cancel your order for you and, where necessary, prevent dispatch of the Products, this may not be possible due to the speed with which orders are processed. If AURORA is unable to amend or cancel your order and the Products are dispatched to you, you have the option of either refusing to accept the delivery, in which case the Products will be returned to AURORA, or accepting the delivery and then returning the Products to AURORA in accordance with section 12 (Returns and Refunds).

Once you have received your Shipment Confirmation, it will be too late to prevent the Products from being dispatched to you. If you would like to cancel your order after this point, please see section 12 (Returns and Refunds) below.

The presentation of the products in the online shop does not constitute a legally binding offer, but rather a non-binding online catalog. The online catalog is an invitation to the customer to make an offer to buy at the conditions specified in the online shop. If you send us a request, you will receive an e-mail confirming the receipt of your request (acknowledgment of receipt) If item(s) isn’t in stock. This confirmation of receipt does not constitute acceptance of your offer. The purchase contract is only concluded when we have received from you the down payment for the production of the goods.

5. Prices, Shipping and Handling, Charges and Taxes

The price charged for a Product will be the price in effect at the time your order is placed and will be set out in the Order Receipt Confirmation/acknowledgement of the receipt and in your Shipment Confirmation.

In the event of a pricing error, whether on the AURORA website or in an Order Receipt Confirmation/acknowledgement of the receipt or otherwise, you accept that AURORA has the right to correct such error and charge the correct price or cancel the order. If the actual price is more than the amount shown on your Order Receipt Confirmation, AURORA will notify you of the correct price and give you the option of proceeding with the order or cancelling it. Your sole remedy in the event of such pricing error is to cancel your order.

You acknowledge that even after AURORA has sent you a Shipment Confirmation, if the pricing error is obvious and could reasonably have been recognised by you as an error, then AURORA will be under no obligation to provide the relevant Product(s) to you at the incorrect (lower) price.

Prices for the Products include VAT and/or other applicable taxes but do not include charges for shipping and handling. Separate charges for shipping and handling (and their related VAT or other taxes) will be clearly displayed on screen prior to the completion of your order and confirmed in your Order Receipt Confirmation.

Prices for Products and for shipping and handling are liable to change at any time, but changes will not normally affect orders in respect of which we have already sent you a Shipment Confirmation (save in the case of a manifest pricing error as described above).

6. Payment

Payment shall be made by one of the methods you have selected during the checkout process (being VISA, MasterCard, Maestro, or PayPal).

Approved credit and debit card types are listed in the KOCHUT website footer. In the event AURORA does not receive the appropriate authorization from your card or payment service provider, AURORA reserves the right to reject your order.

Payment for your order, including all applicable taxes, shipping and other charges, will be settled from the applicable card or payment service once AURORA has sent you the Shipment Confirmation.

7. Delivery

You should allow 12 business days for standard delivery items and 8 business days for express delivery for in stock items, provided that your payment is received before 2pm on the day that the order is placed. For non in stock items it can take up to 30 days until the product(s) will produced and delivered to the customer, but usually it takes less then 30 days. Also you can request product(s) to be produced upon your request or creating your personal order (design etc.), but delivery thren will include production time and delivery from the workshop abroad. 

Delivery shall in any event take place within 30 days after the Shipment Confirmation. AURORA reserves the right to substitute another carrier of equal or lesser cost to deliver your order. If express delivery is required, please select that option prior to submitting your order. The standard delivery and express delivery options described above are the only shipping options available for sales through the AURORA website. AURORA is unable to accept any special delivery requests, which are outside the scope of these two options.

If AURORA cannot deliver your order within the period specified in your Shipment Confirmation, AURORA will notify you as soon as possible and you may choose to cancel your order, in which case AURORA will provide you with a full refund.

If you unreasonably defer delivery or delay the receipt of delivery after AURORA has notified you that the carrier has tried to deliver the ordered items to you, or if you have provided AURORA with an incorrect delivery address which results in an unsuccessful delivery, the delivery package will be returned to AURORA, your order will be cancelled and a full refund will be issued to you.

8. Events Outside the Control of AURORA

AURORA shall not be held responsible for delay or failure to perform, if the delay or failure is caused by any act, event, non-happening, omission accident or circumstance beyond its reasonable control including but not limited to:

The time for AURORA’s performance is deemed to be extended for the period that the above continues.

9. Product Availability

AURORA uses reasonable efforts to ensure the availability of Products you order from the KOCHUT website. However Products are made available to purchase on a "first in-first out" basis and are only available whilst stocks last. Also you can request products to be produced upon your request or creating your personal order (design etc), but then the delivery will include production time and delivery from the workshop abroad.

10. Compatibility, Product Information

Please take care when placing your order to ensure that the Products you purchase are compatible for the intended use. Please use the KOCHUT website as your final point of reference when checking compatibility. In the event of a difference between the KOCHUT website content and any other website (or any other source of information) the compatibility of Products as shown on the KOCHUT website at the time of purchase will be seen as taking precedence.

If the Products you have received do not correspond to the ones you have ordered, or if your delivery is incomplete or damaged in transportation, please contact the AURORA Customer Care Team for assistance without delay, either via email or by phone.

11. Title to Products

Ownership of the Products will pass to you only when AURORA has received full payment in respect of your order, including all taxes, shipping and other charges. Until then, AURORA retains full legal title to the Products. The Products will be at your risk from the time you take physical possession of them.

12. Return and Refund

Cancellations under the Consumer Contracts Regulations

Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (“Consumer Contracts Regulations”), you have a legal right to cancel your purchase during the cancellation period. The cancellation period begins on the date that the contract is formed (when AURORA sends you the Shipment Confirmation) and continues until the end of 14 days starting on the day after you receive the Product. This cancellation right applies to both sale and non-sale Products.

If the Product has been dispatched to you before you cancelled the purchase, you must return the Product to AURORA within 14 days starting on the day after you cancel the order.

If you wish to cancel your purchase under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, you can take advantage of the KOCHUT’S websites’s free Returns Process. You are not obliged to follow the free Returns Process, but if you do not do so you will be solely responsible for the cost of shipping any Products back to AURORA.

If you do not wish to use the free Returns Process, you can cancel your purchase by notifying the Customer Care Team either by email info@kochut.org.uk, by telephone to the phone number
+44 (0) 20 3902 3212 (Mon-Fri 08:00 – 18:00) or by ordinary mail to 241 B Hither Green Lane,London,SE136TH,UK. You may also use this Withdrawal Form to cancel your purchase (and, if you do so, AURORA will confirm receipt by email). Alternatively, you can simply return your Product to AURORA at 241 B Hither Green Lane,London,SE136TH,UK, within the 14 day period starting on the day after delivery, in which case your return will be treated as your notice of cancellation.

If you cancel your purchase under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, AURORA will refund to you the full price you paid for the Product (including all VAT and/or other taxes) together with any delivery costs you have paid, although, as permitted by law, the maximum delivery costs refunded will be the cost of the standard delivery service (regardless of whether you opted for express delivery).

Once AURORA has received and validated your returned Product, AURORA will send you an email to confirm the validation. Any refund due to you will be made as soon as possible and in any event within the period of 14 days after the day on which AURORA receives the Product back from you or, if earlier, the day on which you provide AURORA with evidence that you have sent the Product back to AURORA. If the Product was not dispatched to you, you will be refunded within the period of 14 days after you inform AURORA of your decision to cancel the purchase. AURORA will refund you by the same method you used to make payment.

AURORA is entitled by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the Product, if this has been caused by your handling it in a way which would not be permitted in a shop. If AURORA refunds the price paid before it has an opportunity to inspect the Product and later discovers you have handled it in an unacceptable way or damaged it, you must pay AURORA an appropriate amount.

Returns under the KOCHUT website enhanced cancellation policy

In addition to your rights under the Consumer Contracts Regulations, if for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your purchase from the KOCHUT website, you can return any non-sale Product purchased from the KOCHUT website within 30 days of receipt for a refund, but to do so you must follow the free Returns Process.

Once AURORA has received and validated any returned Products, AURORA will send you an email to confirm the validation. Your refund will be processed within 30 (thirty) days of AURORA’s email to you confirming the receipt and validation of your returned Product.

Any Product returned under the AURORA website enhanced cancellation policy must be in a new, unworn and resaleable condition and AURORA reserves the right to refuse a refund where the Product is returned damaged or showing signs of use or wear.

Please note that these enhanced return rights do not apply to sale Products.

Returning Products that are faulty or not as described

Please see section 13 below for more information about your legal rights in relation to Products that are faulty or not as described.

Special conditions and exceptions

13. Consumer Warranty (Guarantee)

THIS GUARANTEE GIVES YOU SPECIFIC RIGHTS. IT IS OFFERED AS AN ADDITIONAL BENEFIT TO YOUR RIGHTS UNDER LAW. YOU ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS UNDER LAW WHICH MAY VARY FROM COUNTRY TO COUNTRY.

You can find out about your legal rights and remedies by contacting your local consumer advice service. In particular, the KOCHUT website has a legal duty to supply products that conform to the contract. Nothing in this guarantee will replace or lessen any of your legal rights or remedies.

Products sold by the website include a guarantee for Products which turn out to be faulty or not as described during the periods set out below for various Product types:


This means you can request a repair or replacement free of charge if the Products turn out to be faulty or not as described during this period. AURORA will repair your Product or replace it with a Product of identical or similar characteristics, except as set out below. AURORA may at its option replace your Product under this guarantee whether or not a repair of your original Product is possible. If AURORA chooses instead to repair your Product AURORA may do so with new or refurbished components.

If the Product cannot be repaired or replaced within a reasonable time or without inconvenience, you may request a refund or price reduction. Refunds, if authorised, will usually be made using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.

This guarantee is given to the original purchaser of the Product from the KOCHUT website and is not transferable.

Please retain your order confirmation/invoice or pass it on to the gift recipient as the original proof of purchase is the warranty. If a receipt is not available a credit card or bank statement showing the relevant transaction will suffice. This does not affect your legal rights.

This guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear or damages caused by accidents, mishandling, improper use (knocks, dents, crushing etc.).

Repairs (or attempted repairs) to Products other than by KOCHUT will void this guarantee whether or not damage has been caused by such repair or attempted repair.

If your Product is repaired or replaced by AURORA under this guarantee, the new item will benefit from the remainder of the term of this guarantee (calculated from the date of the original purchase of the Product). The period of this guarantee shall not be extended whether or not your Product is repaired or replaced.

Wearing counterfeit charms, charms from incompatible KOCHUT collections or charms on your KOCHUT bracelet could damage the unique threading system and if such damage is caused, it will not be covered by this guarantee.

• under section 2(3) of the UK's Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
• for any matter for which it would be illegal for AURORA to exclude, or attempt to exclude, liability.
