Refund policy


Exchanges and refunds

Returning your product if it’s unwanted:

Please return your item unused and in original condition (as it was received by you) with proof of purchase within 35 days, and we’ll give you an exchange or refund.

If you wish to return an item of jewellery or a watch which has a value of over £500, please take it back in person to a John Lewis & Partners shop and not by post or courier. Please be aware that we'll only process your refund once the item has been returned to and checked by our specialist; this can take up to 14 days.

Returning Christmas presents: 

We’ve extended our usual limit for returns just for the festive season. You can return any gift you buy 21 October - 24 December up until 28 January if it’s unwanted or unsuitable.

If you’re buying in store, please ask for a gift receipt so that the recipient can also return the present. We’re sorry that we can’t provide gift receipts for all online orders, but if it's available, you'll be offered the option in checkout to remove prices from the delivery note.

All other terms and conditions apply to exchanges and refunds. This doesn’t affect your statutory rights

Returning your product because it has a fault:

If your product develops a fault within 30 days of purchase, please return with proof of purchase and we’ll exchange or refund it.

After 30 days, we’ll repair the product as long as it’s within the terms and conditions of our warranty.
