Orders & Payment

Orders placed do not constitute a legal contract until Sausalito Jewelers ships the product. Terms of payment are within Sausalito Jewelers’ sole discretion and, unless otherwise arranged, payment must be received prior to acceptance of an order. Payment may be made by any of the above methods.

If payment is made by credit card, acceptance of the order is subject to credit card verification protocol. We reserve the right to cancel an order if it does not meet our credit card verification standards. If payment is made by check, product will not be shipped until the check clears.

Your order is subject to cancellation by Sausalito Jewelers, at our sole discretion. We are not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors. We reserve the right to cancel any order resulting from such errors.

Sice many of our items are one of a kind we offer an interest free Layaway Program which allows our client the opportunity to secure the item before it sells out and make small payments over an extended period of time.

Orders may be placed on layaway for a maximum of 120 days. At least one payment a month must be made and the total cost of your order must be paid within 120 days.

A non-refundable deposit of at least 25% of the total price of your order will be required when the merchandise is put into layaway. You may pay be cash, check, credit or debit card. Payments may be made in person or by phone: (415) 331-2100 x1.

The balance can be paid at any time prior to the end of the 120-day layaway period. There are no penalties or hidden charges for additional or larger payments or if you would like to pay the layaway off early.

Clients are fully responsible to meet due date requirements. No statements or invoices will be sent.

Forfeited layaways are subject to 25% (of the retail price) restocking fee. Payments balances can be applied towards an exchange or store credit.

Orders must be shipped or picked up in-store within 90 days after the layaway balance has been paid in full.
