All consignments are subject to the following Terms and Conditions. Please review thoroughly before accepting the Terms and Conditions. “We”, “us” or “our” means Antandre Co. doing business as Antandre, and/or its legal affiliates; “you” or “your” refers to the client taking the jewelry out on consignment.
STYLING FEE. A payment for the styling fee will be charged to your credit card account at the time you place your home try on order.
RETURN DATE. The Return Date is the date you deliver the jewelry to UPS/FEDEX/USPS/Fedex/USPS as described in this paragraph. Unless otherwise authorized by Antandre, the Return Date is always the FOURTH business day after you’ve received the home try on . The jewelry must be re-packaged in its Antandre jewelry box and placed into its corresponding Antandre jewelry packer box. The jewelry box(es) must then be placed and sealed in the pre-paid / pre-addressed shipping package included with the initial shipment. The package may then be presented for overnight shipment to any UPS/FEDEX/USPS Office or UPS/FEDEX/USPS Store in your area for return shipment. Remember to request a receipt for proof that you delivered the package, without the receipt you can be held responsible if it does not get delivered. We prepay the to/from shipping, including delivery insurance, and the cost is reflected in the transaction amount that will be charged to your credit card. You are not required to purchase insurance from UPS/FEDEX/USPS/Fedex/USPS and, for security reasons, you should not discuss the contents of the package with any personnel.
LATE FEES. If you do not deliver the jewelry item for return shipment by the required Return Date, all products will be charged and billed to your account. You will still have up to 14 days to return the products under a conventional return. However, you will not receive the styling fee discount in this scenario.
Late fees will be charged to your credit card account in addition to all other applicable fees. You agree and acknowledge that the late fees provided for by this paragraph are intended as compensation to us, and are not intended to be a punishment or penalty, because the damages that we would suffer by way of late return are incapable or very difficult of accurate estimation because of factors including, without limitation, our recovery of anticipated profits, our loss of sales and reputation due to unavailability of items, fluctuations in the value of gems and precious metals, and changes in our insurance rates. You further agree and acknowledge that (i) our ability to make jewelry available for consignment to other customers depends greatly on our ability to secure return of that jewelry by the second business day following your event, as return after such date may prevent us from having sufficient time to clean, repair and re-ship the jewelry to the next customer; (ii) because of that lack of time we cannot commit to have jewelry available to upcoming customers until such time as the jewelry is in our possession and capable of cleaning (and where applicable, repair) for upcoming events; and, (iii) that while we may be able to re-ship jewelry on a rush basis if it is returned by the third business day following your event, jewelry returned on the fourth business day after your event, or later, cannot be processed and re-shipped in time for the upcoming weekend. For the foregoing reasons, you agree with us that the amounts reflected in the schedule of late fees above are a reasonable forecast of just compensation to us in the event of late return. Further, if any jewelry items are not returned within fourteen (14) days after the Return Date, as liquidated damages for your failure to timely return the item(s) we will have the right to charge your credit card account as provided under “Liquidated Damages” below.
BACKGROUND AND CREDIT CHECK. You understand investigative consumer reports may be obtained in connection with your placing a jewelry Antandre Co . order.

We do reserve the right to require up to 50% of the retail value at our sole discretion. Clients will be notified if an increase in their Security Deposit is required. If you do not agree to the increase in your security deposit we will cancel your order and you will receive a full refund. The retail value of the jewelry, and therefore the amount of the Security Deposit, will be determined by us in our sole discretion and will be reserved against your credit card, but will be removed upon return of the jewelry in the same condition as when delivered to us as provided in these Terms & Conditions. Any late fees/damage fees/additional fees or charges due us as provided in these Terms & Conditions will be charged to your credit card upon our receipt of the jewelry or the expiration of eight (8) days after the Return Date, whichever is earlier.

If we exercise our right to require payment of up to 100% of the retail value of any item due to failure to timely return that item, we will waive all applicable late fees and damage fees otherwise chargeable with respect to those items, we will refuse return of the item(s) in question, and you will acquire title in such item(s) from us. You agree and acknowledge that the Liquidated Damages provided for by this paragraph are intended as compensation to us, and are not intended to be a punishment or penalty, because the damages that we would suffer by way of failure to return our items other than within fourteen (14) days after the Return Date are incapable or very difficult of accurate estimation because of factors including, without limitation, our recovery of anticipated profits, our loss of sales and reputation due to unavailability of items, fluctuations in the value of gems and precious metals, and changes in our insurance rates or the availability of insurance coverage. For the foregoing reasons, you agree with us that the amounts fixed above are a reasonable forecast of just compensation to us in the event of failure to return the items other than within fourteen (14) days after the Return Date.
