Falling Auction    - Open Quantity 
We start a Reverse Price Auction with a set quantity for sale. The quantity is reduced every time a bid is made. 
Using a reverse price auction format we keep lowering the price of the jewellery until the quantity reaches zero. 
Participants in any of our auctions must be individuals aged 18 or over. 

The placement of a bid is legally binding and may not be withdrawn by the bidder after it is placed. Everybody pays the final lowest price. 

The auction will close when the quantity left is zero or alternatively when we at our absolute discretion decide to close the auction for any reason(s) whatsoever, and the closing will usually be communicated by the TV presenter and we will have no liability to those customers who placed qualifying bids. 

In some cases, where the auction may close before the quantity left reaches zero, a clock will be introduced during the auction and the on-screen clock will count down the time remaining and the auction will end when either the time shown on the clock has reached zero or a bid has been received in respect of each of the items which were available at the start of the clock, whichever comes first and the number of qualifying bids received will be fulfilled at the price of the most recent qualifying bid. TJC reserve the right to withdraw any auctions without notification, irrespective of whether there are bids or not, if it is deemed to be necessary. 

Falling Auction - Closed Quantity 
We start a Reverse Price Auction with no quantity shown. Each bid placed during the auction will treated as a sale and will be shown on screen as a rising quantity against the on air “sold” figure, so that the customer can see the total quantity “sold ”during the auction at any moment in time. Using the reverse price auction format, we keep lowering the price of the jewellery until the required, undisclosed quantity has been achieved. Participants in any of our auctions must be individuals aged 18 or over. The placement of a bid is legally binding and may not be withdrawn by the bidder after it is placed.

Everybody pays the final lowest price. The auction will close when the undisclosed quantity has been reached or alternatively when we, at our absolute discretion, decide to close the auction for any reason(s) whatsoever, and the closing of which, will usually be communicated by the TV presenter. We will have no liability to those customers who placed qualifying bids. In some cases a clock will be introduced during the auction and the on-screen clock will count down the time remaining and the auction will end when the time shown on the clock has reached zero. TJC reserve the right to withdraw any auctions without notification, irrespective of whether there are bids or not, if it is deemed necessary. 

Rising Auction
When you see an auction you are interested in simply enter your bid amount and click on the bid now button to enter the auction.
Please place your bids in whole pound amounts only. Remember, all bids must be in increments of either £1 or £2. An acceptable bid amount is noted underneath the Bid Now button. Do not use decimal points or any other characters.

By bidding on any auction item you are confirming your intent to purchase an item if you are the final winner. Failure to honour and repeated abuse of the system will automatically terminate your account and you may be restricted from bidding or buying from The Jewellery Channel in the future. Once a bid is placed you cannot cancel it. All winning bidders will be notified by email about their bids and a link to complete the checkout process will be sent. You must process payment for your winning bids within 24 hours from the end of the auction. If the winning bid is not completed within the timeframe, the item will be automatically released back for a new auction. A reserve price is set on each of the items and if that reserve price is not met by the highest bid, the stock item will not be sold. We also hold the right to cancel the Rising Auction bids at any time. 
Please note: We may include certain Iliana, Rhapsody or other luxury items in the Rising Auction with a reserve price being allocated. 

Timed Auctions 
We start a Timed Auction with a set quantity for sale. The quantity is reduced every time a bid is made. Timed Auctions are recognized on TV by the fact that a clock is displayed throughout the auction. Once the auction has been introduced the clock counts down to zero. 

We keep lowering the price of the jewellery until the quantity reaches zero or the clock reaches zero. The auction ends when the clock reaches zero, or the quantity sells out (whichever is first). When the auction is ended by a clock hitting zero everyone pays the final price displayed on screen at that time. 

The available quantity for sale for each auction is fixed in advance, but is not always displayed on screen. Participants in any of our auctions must be individuals aged 18 or over. 
The placement of a bid is legally binding and may not be withdrawn by the bidder after it is placed. The one screen start price is not implying a value or worth of the jewellery it is simply a random place chosen to start each auction.

Everybody pays the final lowest price.

WEEE Compliance

If you are buying a new watch, we will recycle your old one for free.


Why recycle?
Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK's fastest growing type of waste.
Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination - harming wildlife and also human health.

We can help
We are pleased to offer our customers the chance to recycle their old watches.
We offer customers a free 'Take Back' on their old watches. This is done on a like-for-like basis. If you purchase a new watch from us you can only return an old watch back to us. You have 28 days from the date of purchase of your new watch to return the old watch to us. Please send the item to this address - P.O. Box 276, Hampton, TW12 1XB, with proof of your new purchase and a request to recycle the old watch. You are responsible for postage costs incurred on returning the watch to us. 

To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed-out wheel bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheel bin symbol) in your bin.

What is WEEE?
The Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive requires countries to maximise seperate collection and environmentally friendly processing of these items. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take-back scheme must offer all customers buying new electrical equipment, free take back of their old electricals on a like for like basis. 
For more information on WEEE recycling and to locate your local recycling centre, please visit www.recyclenow.com.
