7.3. Effects of Cancellation / Returns
a) We shall reimburse to you all payments received from you, excluding (i) shipping costs to you, if any, and (ii) Return Shipping Costs, if any.
b) We will reimburse in the same means of payment as for the initial transaction; in any event you will not incur any fees as a result of such reimbursement. Please note that if you pay fully by Gift Card, the amount paid can only be reimbursed as a Gift Card. If partial payment is made by Gift Card, the amount paid via your chosen payment method will be reimbursed first via the same payment method. Any remaining amount will then be reimbursed to your Gift Card.
c) Your refund will be made by the Return Deadline, assuming that your have fulfilled Your obligation to return your Order by the Return Deadline. 
d) Where you have paid any duties or taxes directly to the relevant authorities on the Products you wish to return, We shall have no liability in relation to any claim for a refund of such duties or taxes from the authorities.
e) Please retain your delivery note until you have received your refund.
f) Vouchers and customized Products can generally not be replaced or returned.
g) It is not currently possible to return Products purchased in person at Swarovski Stores through the Website.
h) Please note, that if you decide to return only part of an order that has been purchased with a discount / promotion offer applied, the discount / promotion offer will be re-calculated.
i) If you decide to return only part of an order that has been purchased with a discount/promotion offer applied, the amount refunded will be subject to the minimum purchase amount placed on the offer, the value of the discount will be adjusted accordingly, and only the amount relevant to the returned item will be refunded. If the items returned bring the remaining total below the minimum purchase level of the offer, then the discounted amount will be deducted from the refund amount.
For example, a 10% discount (with a minimum purchase amount of CAD100.00) will be removed if the returned product(s) brings the total order value below CAD100.00 In case of a promotion with staggered prices, always the lowest amount will be refunded.
For items which come in a single box (“normal set”), if you wish to return any of the items within the normal set, you will have to return all the items that were part of the normal set.  Swarovski will not accept returns of individual items within the normal set and will only accept returns of the entire normal set.
For bundle-promotional sets, where you enjoy a promotion or discount as a result of purchasing one or more items (e.g. buy 3 items and get 10% off each item or where savings for each product are stated), you can return any of the items purchased separately. However, in case you choose to return any items purchased as a bundled set, kindly note that Swarovski will adjust the promotional price by charging you the regular price for the remaining items that you purchased as part of the bundle. Accordingly, Swarovski will deduct from the amount to be refunded to you (i.e. the discounted price paid for the item(s) in the bundle that you have returned) the difference between the regular price and the discounted price of the remaining items in the bundle that you do not return.
