If you return your items via shipping or post:

  • all shipping return charges must be pre-paid. We do not accept C.O.D (cash on delivery) deliveries

  • you are responsible for any loss or damage to the item until it is delivered to us, and we highly recommend returned items are insured during delivery (such as Australia Post 'Extra Cover') to safeguard against loss you must include a copy of your shipping confirmation email or order confirmation email in the package and ship the return package to: Michael Hill 34 Southgate Ave Cannon Hill QLD 4170

How we assess and process returns

All returns are subject to inspection and assessment by our Store team or Quality Assurance team. If our Store team is not able to carry out a proper assessment, your item may be sent to our Head Office for proper assessment by our Quality Assurance team. Returns and refunds will be made only subject to any applicable Consumer Law and Michael Hill’s General Terms and Conditions of Purchase.

Any refund, repair or replacement (if and as applicable) will be made to you within a reasonable amount of time.

We refund you the same way that you initially paid for your purchase except refunds of cash payments may be made by cheque, direct credit or to a debit card in the name of the purchaser. Refunds will only be made to the debit/credit card or finance account used for the original purchase, so please be aware of this if you intend to return an item given to you as a gift.

Our Change of Mind Policy does not apply to:

  • earrings

  • resized rings (whether resized as part of the purchase or after purchase)

  • engraved items

  • special, custom or made to order items.

If for any reason you change your mind about any eligible purchase, we will gladly refund the purchase price, provided:

  • you return the item to us instore within 30 days of purchase (or within 30 days of delivery in the case of online orders)

  • the item is in As New Condition and accompanied by:

  • proof of purchase

'As New Condition' means that the item must not have been worn; the item must be in pristine condition with no damage, scratches, or signs of wear. Determination of an item matching the definition of 'As New Condition' is at the sole discretion of Michael Hill.

Our Change of Mind Policy is in addition to, and in no way limits, your legal entitlement and existing rights under Australian Consumer Law.
