beauty of rwanda – Customer Terms and Conditions

Beauty of Rwanda brings customers beautiful jewellery and homewares made by women and girls in Rwanda.

Promo codes

We may give you a promo code that you can use to reduce the price of specified products. All codes must be applied at checkout, as they cannot be applied retrospectively.

Each promo code will come with its own terms (e.g. minimum spend or product specific etc), which will be made clear at the time it’s issued to you. Full details will also be available in our Terms And Conditions.

If you’re given a unique promo code that is created specifically for your use, it cannot be shared or transferred to other customers, or posted in a public forum. We reserve the right to cancel and/or suspend any promo codes that we feel are being misused. Additionally any promotions and discounts applied against our terms and conditions will be removed from the order and charged back to your payment method.
