Placing an Order
Placing an order with FARLANG.com is easy. Simply follow the steps below:
a) Add an item to your shopping bag by clicking on the “ADD TO BAG” button.
b) When you proceed to checkout you will be prompted to fill in your personal information. You will also be shown your shopping bag for review. Once your purchase is complete, we cannot add further items to your order. You will be given the option to “Continue Shopping” or “Proceed to Checkout”.
c) Follow the instructions as you proceed through the next steps until your order has been confirmed. You will see an order number and a “Thank You” indicating that your order is complete.
d) Immediately afterward, you will receive an order confirmation via email. The designer will be notified immediately as well. Once the designer has shipped the product you will be notified by email receiving a tracking number and an expected delivery date.
e) We make every effort to keep the designer’s stock on the website up to date. Occasionally, a designer will have sold the product themselves before the website could be updated. If this should happen, you will receive an email indicating that a particular item you ordered is out of stock. Any changes will be reflected on your invoice.
FARLANG.com works with the security software SSL (Secure Socket Layer), which is based on asymmetrical encryption to prevent malpractice or deception or copying of credit card information during the purchase process.
In addition FARLANG.com uses an additional encryption layer to the payment transaction platform as well as an “artificial intelligence” engine for early warning fraud protection.
This automatically ensures that neither FARLANG nor any third parties have access to this information. This credit card information will only be used again for after purchase transactions in the case of refunds. Please note that this is a direct withdrawal immediately after purchase.
b) Cards we accept: We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
c) Shipping & billing address
For security reasons, first-time orders can only be shipped to the cardholder´s billing address or a corporate work address which we are able to independently verify. To avoid delays, please make sure that your billing address matches the address on your credit card statement, and that the cardholder´s name is written exactly as it appears on your credit card. In the unlikely event that we need to contact you during the authentication process, please ensure that your contact details are accurate.
d) American Express
When shipping to a delivery address other than your billing address, American Express must have your alternative delivery address in their system. To limit delays when processing your order, please contact American Express and give them your alternative delivery address prior to placing your order. We will contact American Express to verify your alternative delivery address during the order confirmation process.
a) Shipping times for jewelry/gems in the shop

b) Shipping time for jewelry/gems that need customization, are custom orders, “made to order” or any other “special request”
Delivery times depend on “time to create” the custom order. It usually takes a craftsman/woman or a designer 2-3 weeks for a technically complex item to create. Depending on the requirement to find special request gemstones this process can take longer.
