ON-LINE RETURN POLICY
We will happily accept unworn, undamaged or defective product for exchange or refund within 21 days of ship date. Sale items are a final sale and therefore are not eligible for exchange or return. Refunds will be made in the form of the original payment. Once your return is processed, a credit will be issued for the merchandise amount only. Shipping charges are not refundable. Please allow 5 -7 business days for the refund to post to your account. Requests to exchange merchandise received as a gift must be accompanied by a gift receipt.
We gladly honor one-time price adjustments on full-price merchandise within 7 days of the retail purchase or ship date if accompanied by the original receipt.

We reserve the right to cancel orders containing erroneous prices including those due to technical or administrative errors on our part.
All orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to additional charges based on the end country’s taxes, tariffs and duties. These fees will not be applied to the final invoice.
If there are any end country’s taxes, tariffs and duties they will be imposed at delivery and collected by UPS before you can take ownership.
CREDIT CARD AUTHORIZATION
Only one credit card may be used per transaction. This includes bank-issued gift cards with a credit card logo (example: American Express gift cards).
Your credit card will not be charged until the items in your order are shipped. In some cases, because not all items may ship together, you will see more than one charge on your credit card.
When attempting to place an order on hamptongems.com, a temporary authorization hold may be placed on your credit card.
Please be assured, this is not an actual charge and this authorization hold will be removed within 48 hours of your items being shipped. It is up to your credit card issuing bank as to when you will see the authorization hold drop off.
For your security, your billing name, address and phone number must match that of the credit card used for payment. We reserve the right to cancel any order that does not match these criteria.
To the extent that we are required by law to charge and collect taxes on products that we sell, such taxes are charged based on the tax laws applicable to the location to which the order is being shipped or delivered. At checkout, all appropriate taxes will be added to the order total.
Please note: the tax amount displayed during checkout is an estimate of the tax applicable to your order. This amount may vary slightly from the actual amount of tax payable in connection with your order due to different tax rates which apply as a result of the origin and destination of the item(s) being purchased, as well as other factors. The actual amount of tax payable in connection with your order will appear in your order confirmation email.
Applicable sales tax will be charged on total merchandise, including shipping & handling fees, for orders shipped within the state of New York.
