Last Updated: May 13, 2021
These Terms are updated periodically -- the latest updated date is identified at the top of these Terms so that you can review them again if they have been revised since your last visit to the Sites. It is your responsibility to review the Terms to determine whether they have changed since your last visit.
This website is owned by James Avery and James Avery reserves the right to withdraw access to the website and to temporarily or permanently take down the website.

Site Content and Product Postings
James Avery in its sole discretion, and without notice or liability to you, may update, modify, correct, or delete Site content, including, but not limited to, price changes, changes to descriptions of product, the removal of product from the website, and the addition of a limitation in the quantity of specific products that one customer may order.
James Avery strives to ensure that accurate prices are posted on the Sites but does not warrant that the price displayed is the correct price. Pricing on the Sites should always be the same as prices in any James Avery retail store, but in the event of a conflict, the price given at a James Avery retail store will prevail. Pricing is in US Dollars. Additionally, James Avery does not warrant that Site product descriptions or depictions are accurate. For example, the descriptions may contain typographical errors or the photos or depictions may be enlarged to show detail.
James Avery does not warrant that every item you view on the Site is currently available. For example, some items may be temporarily out-of-stock while other items may have been discontinued but not yet removed from the Site. There is no guarantee that items that you view on one visit to the website will be available the next time that you visit the website.
If you notice a discrepancy on the Site in pricing, descriptions, or availability, please notify Customer Service at 1-800-283-1770 or click here and select the subject line ‘General Information or Feedback’ to send us message. James Avery appreciates your notifications but does not have a legal duty to update or modify the website.
James Avery does not warrant that the website will be continuously available, that it will operate without interruptions, or that it will be free of errors or viruses, bugs, or any harmful components. You are solely responsible for taking steps to ensure that any material you obtain from the website is free from such harmful components.
Your device’s screen settings may affect the colors of the product seen on your device which may vary from the actual product. Your screen may cause the product to appear larger or smaller than the actual size (and as noted above, some photos have been enlarged to show detail).
