Terms and Conditions
Please read these terms and conditions carefully before placing your order as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law. When you make a purchase via this website, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms and conditions, if you do not agree with these terms, then please do not use our site. Baby casting, as with all life casting is not guaranteed and although our kits have detailed, simple instructions and plenty of material to practice with, this does not guarantee that you will get the results that you want. By using our kits, you are giving yourself a great opportunity to create casts / impressions but we cannot guarantee great results as life casting can be affected by so many factors beyond our control, the materials are affected by the temperature of the water, the baby wriggling too much, the instructions not being followed correctly and even the temperature of the room will affect how quickly the material sets, we do offer personalised advice if you struggle at all and all of our contact details are in all of our kits and items.
Personalised Keepsakes (i.e. Fine silver jewellery moulds)
Please return your impressions/prints as soon as possible, so we can fulfil your order, manage our stock and workload, failure to return prints within 12 weeks from ordering may result in your order being cancelled and without refund. Some personalised orders that are cancelled after they have been ordered will be liable for a cancellation charge, this is to cover any expenditure incurred by us in preparation of your order, and this will also include any postage charges, any necessary components already sent out & any other admin expenses incurred due to cancellation of your order. As bespoke items are produced especially for you, you will be unable to cancel the order once it has been placed, we will only replace if a mistake has been made on our part, so please ensure all details you give us are correct, there will be some variations in positioning of photos and text as each product is handmade and different fonts will alter the overall finished appearance, this should be allowed for with bespoke items. Refunds are not normally due on any specially produced, bespoke personalised items, unless there is an error on our part; we may then choose to replace your item rather than refund if your item is faulty, please note when cancelling any bespoke item after work has begun may be subject to a cancellation fee. All of our products are handcrafted and not machine made. The nature of handmade items means that no piece will be without any minor imperfections or faint scratches, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. Products and product designs can be updated at any time, please read the product descriptions carefully.

We aim to get every stock item out as quickly as possible; once you have placed an order, it will be dispatched the same day or the next day depending on the time the order was placed, most of our items are bespoke and so may take slightly longer to dispatch as they are specially made for you, we will endeavour to dispatch your items as soon as possible. We mainly use a next day delivery courier for most of our items, ensuring a fast and reliable service. If you wish to cancel your order after it has been dispatched, you will be charged for the delivery and the collection of your order. Orders placed before 12:30 Mon – Fri are normally delivered the next working day, orders placed at the weekend will normally be delivered on the Tuesday, except when it has been a bank holiday, when delivery will not be until the Wednesday. Although our couriers endeavour to deliver the next day, we cannot guarantee this due to circumstances beyond our control, like vehicle break-downs and during very busy times like bank holidays and Christmas. With all courier items, you will be emailed a tracking number when the item is dispatched, please ensure that you check your spam box if you do not receive this. Our couriers make every effort to deliver your items, if you are left a calling card then please ensure that you act on it to re-arrange the delivery at a suitable time, if after all attempts by them to contact you and to deliver the kit have been exhausted and should you have still not contacted the courier to re-arrange a convenient time/place for the delivery, then the parcel will end up being returned to us, upon its return, we will deduct the original postage charge and the extra return postage charge from your payment and only refund any over-payment after these extra charges have been covered, except with any bespoke items, then the full charge is still payable (please note that the courier return charge is currently approx. twice the price of the original delivery charge, it is a fairly hefty charge). We will only be able to re-send your orders after all of these charges have been paid and you have re-purchased your item and paid a new postage charge.
DAMAGE THAT HAS OCCURRED IN TRANSIT MUST BE REPORTED BY EMAIL OR BY PHONE: 01752 815444 WITHIN 24 HOURS OF RECEIVING YOUR PARCEL
Failure to do so means we will be unable to refund your delivery costs which you will still be liable for. Signing for a parcel means that you are signing to say that the goods have been received in good order so please check all courier items immediately. We advise you to keep all packaging until you are satisfied with the product.
We sincerely hope that you are delighted with your bespoke item purchase, we strive to maintain high standards of quality control, however if any items do not meet your expectations, please ring or e-mail us first to see if the problem can easily be sorted out; as most of our keepsake items are bespoke (made specially to order) please do not return goods until you have sent us an email or telephoned us and been given your returns reference number, we will normally replace any faulty parts as bespoke items cannot normally be refunded, unless an error has been made on our part. If you change your mind then you may return any ‘off-the-shelf' item to us for a full refund (excluding delivery charges) within 14 days from the day following delivery, providing the item when we receive it is unused and in its undamaged, original packaging, suitable for resale, the customer is responsible for the postage costs incurred when returning an item to us, goods must be returned via a secure, traceable method and all tracking numbers should be retained to ensure that the goods do reach us, (we cannot be held responsible for items that go missing in the post or are damaged during transit and we take no responsibility for items sent back to us until we have received them), once the goods have been received and checked, your refund will be processed and you will be credited as necessary. Any items that are sent back to us that are not in a suitable condition may be refused or a full refund may not be issued. Bespoke items will only be exchanged if they are faulty or incorrect and the mistake is on our part. If you receive goods which do not match those that you ordered, for example, the wrong product or name engraved, you should contact us within 14 calendar days to arrange return. We will assess the goods and alleged faults upon receipt and if we conclude (at our sole discretion, acting reasonably and in good faith) determine that the fault is not a result of mistreatment by you (deliberate, negligent or otherwise), we will issue replacement goods at no additional cost to you. Returned items should be sent (after first speaking with us to obtain a returns number) with your returns number to: Customer Support, Borrowed Moments, Unit A1, Trevol Business Park, Torpoint, Cornwall Pl11 2TB.

Fine Silver Jewellery Care
Our fine silver jewellery has a 99.9% silver content, fine silver is a soft metal, therefore care should be taken not to knock it against any hard surfaces, or rub, scratch it, as this may cause your jewellery to lose some of its detail, this is to be expected and is classed as normal wear and tear. Silver naturally tarnishes over time and your charm will need polishing, do this with a special silver polishing cloth to restore shine, but be careful not to rub the hand print, footprint or fingerprint in any personalised jewellery, otherwise you could make it fade. To keep your fine silver jewellery at its best: keep away from any humid environment; remove your jewellery before swimming, bathing, showering, using cleaning materials or applying hygiene or beauty products; try keeping a piece of silver foil in your jewellery box as this may help to lessen tarnishing of your jewellery; remove your jewellery at night; your jewellery should be treated as a special piece of jewellery, it is a precious memory piece and should be treated carefully.
