8. Product Availability; Quantity
All orders placed through the Website are subject to availability and acceptance by Maison Miru. Maison Miru reserves the right to change the products listed on the Website without prior notice and/or may limit from time to time the quantity of Maison Miru products that may be ordered by a User in a single buying session. The product pages of the Website can provide you with information regarding products that are currently available. Products that are unavailable may display a “Coming Soon” or “Out of Stock” notice, as applicable, on the product pages. Maison Miru may modify or discontinue any products on the Website. If Maison Miru discontinues a product you have ordered, Maison Miru will give you a full refund for any product purchased but not yet shipped.
9. Prices and Taxes
All prices shown on the Website are in U.S. Dollars. Maison Miru reserves the right to modify prices at any time without prior notice. The price of a product displayed on the Website at the time Maison Miru provides you with confirmation of your order will be honored. Sales and use taxes will vary based on the location to which products are being shipped. The actual sales tax associated with your purchase will be calculated at the time your order is to be shipped. Please note that changes to applicable law between the date your order is placed and the date you are sent a shipping confirmation may result in changes to the sales tax associated with your purchase.
Maison Miru uses Shopify to process all payments. We accept payment via all major credit cards. When placing an order on the Website, you will need to enter your payment details on the appropriate form, as prompted. Maison Miru is prohibited under U.S. law from making sales of its goods to individuals or companies designated on the Office of Foreign Assets Controls Specially Designated Nationals List, or to countries sanctioned by the U.S. Any such transactions will be declined.
11. Shipping Policy
Maison Miru ships its products worldwide, using USPS First Class for US deliveries and DHL International for international deliveries. We offer free standard shipping on all US orders $75 and over. On US orders below $75, we offer flat rate shipping of $7. We offer flat rate shipping on all international orders, and prices vary by country. Orders are typically fulfilled and shipped within 1-3 business days of purchase. We ship from Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. You will be charged at the time the order is placed. When your order ships, we will email you a shipping confirmation.
We require a signature upon delivery for fine jewelry orders over $200 and all international orders over $200. If you won’t be home to sign for your package, we can remove the signature requirement. However, if we remove the signature requirement, we unfortunately can’t assist in the event the package is lost or stolen in transit.
Please be aware that all international orders, regardless of shipping method, may be subject to additional duties and import taxes upon delivery. These fees are calculated by customs officials, and are difficult to estimate prior to shipment. Duties and taxes are not included in the prices listed on our Website. Please also be aware that delays in customs are becoming increasingly common. Packages may take longer to arrive at international destinations, and we cannot control or prevent this type of delay.
If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example, as a gift) then you understand and accept that delivery at that address is evidence of delivery and fulfillment of the sale contract by Maison Miru in the same way as if the goods had been delivered to you.
12. Return and Exchange Policy
Returns: We accept returns of most undamaged items within thirty (30) days of purchase. Custom items and items marked “Final Sale,” however, are not returnable. Unauthorized returns may be returned to the sender. Refunds are issued in the original form of payment for all purchases. Additional information regarding returns and exchanges can be found here https://www.maisonmiru.com/pages/returns-and-exchanges.
Exchanges: We accept exchanges of most undamaged items within thirty (30) days of purchase. Custom items and items marked “Final Sale,” however, are not subject to exchange.

Maison Miru and you each agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to (a) these Terms or the existence, breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or (b) your access to or use of the Services at any time, whether before or after the date you agreed to the Terms, will be settled by binding arbitration between you and Maison Miru, and not in a court of law.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the "AAA Rules") then in effect. The parties agree that the arbitrator ("Arbitrator"), and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any disputes relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including any claim that all or any part of this Section is void or voidable. Notwithstanding any choice of law or other provision in the Terms, the parties agree and acknowledge that this Arbitration Agreement evidences a transaction involving interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. ("FAA"), will govern its interpretation and enforcement and proceedings pursuant thereto. It is the intent of the parties that the FAA and AAA Rules shall preempt all state laws to the fullest extent permitted by law. If the FAA and AAA Rules are found to not apply to any issue that arises under this Arbitration Agreement or the enforcement thereof, then that issue shall be resolved under the laws of the state of New York.
The Arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction to do so. The Arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant's individual claim. An Arbitrator’s decision shall be final and binding on all parties
