Is it safe to order on Licensedtocharm.co.uk?
How do I contact customer services?
Please either email us on [email protected] Monday-Friday 9.30am-5.30pm.
What is Licensed to Charm jewellery made from?
All our jewellery is crafted in precious metals. We use a solid sterling silver base with a thick vermeil-plating (3 microns!) of 18ct gold or 18ct rose gold. Every piece is designed to be enjoyed for years to come. You can find out more about silver and vermeil jewellery in our care guide.
Is Licensed to Charm Jewellery nickel-free?
All our jewellery is nickel-free and perfect for everyday wear.
What’s the difference between a jump ring and a clip-on fastening on charms?
A jump ring is a ring that slides on to a neck chain while a clip-on fastening is designed for use on a chain charm bracelet or charm carrier. We use either 6mm oval jump rings, or 5mm round ones.
What size are the jump rings on charms, and do they fit any chain?
We use both 6mm oval and 5 mm round jump rings depending on the style of the charm in question. Both will fit over the end of most chains. We can vary this to order if you want to match a specific size or chain.
What is the blackening on silver charms?
We apply a oxidising agent to ‘antique’ the surface of many of our designs to enhance the design and emphasise details and facial features. This is then removed, and each piece is hand polished to a shiny finish, and to remove any residue.
Can I ask for a different finish on a charm?
Yes, we can offer custom finishes with some collections. Please email your request and we will try to accommodate it.
Can I ask for a different chain or chain length to the one in a necklace set?
Different chain lengths may be available. Please email your request and we will try to accommodate it.

What payment methods do you accept?
Our secure system accepts MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit, Maestro and Paypal.
When will I be charged for my order?
The time at which you'll be charged for your order will depend on the payment method you selected at checkout.
If your card is authorised, payment will be taken immediately, and you will receive an email confirming that your order has been successful.
If your card is not authorised, payment will not be taken, and we'll email to let you know your bank or card issuer wouldn't authorise the payment.
My payment was declined, what should I do?
- Place your order again
If your payment has been declined, then you will need to place your order again. We are not able to reinstate an order once the payment has been declined.
- Make the relevant checks
- To help ensure your order is not declined when placing a new order, we suggest checking the following:
- Check the card details on your Licensed To Charm account to make sure the information is correct, e.g. the expiry date or your billing address.
- Make sure you enter the security code correctly - that's the three-digit number on the back of your card.
- Your card issuer may have declined your payment - as they do not tell us the reason for this, it's best to check with them or contact your bank.
If you have checked all of the above, try paying with another card.
- Contact us
If you've tried all these and are still having problems, contact our Customer Care Team with as many details as you can about the issue - including any error messages you receive and we'll try to resolve it as soon as we can.
How do I use PayPal to pay for my order?
To pay with PayPal, you'll need to set up a PayPal account on the PayPal website. It only takes minutes to open a PayPal account and it's free. It will appear as a payment option at the checkout and you will be able to use paypal.
Why pay with PayPal?
- It's safer: shop at thousands of websites without sharing your financial details.
- It's faster: with no need to type in your card details, you can check out in a few clicks.
- It's easier: all you need is an email address and password to pay online

How do I pre-order a product?
A Pre-Order allows you to place an order for an item that we do not yet have in stock. In this event, we reserve your order and despatch as soon as the item(s) comes available.
Now and then, scheduling and shipping dates can change, and some Pre-Orders can be delayed, brought forward or cancelled. If the delivery dates for an item changes, we will update the item on our website. If we cannot fulfil your pre-order, we will send you an email to confirm the reason why. Please be aware that making a pre-order does not guarantee that we will get that item into stock. We will take payment for pre-orders but if we cannot fulfil we will refund. We cannot be held responsible for suppliers' cancellations or date changes, and it will be the responsibility of the customer to ensure that sufficient funds are available.
How do I cancel or add to my order?
Orders are processed as soon as possible. If you place an order online in error or want to add something to an order you have already placed, please email us immediately and quote the order number from your confirmation email.
