terms & conditions

This website is owned and operated by The Synonymous Company Pty Ltd (ABN 86 150 514 319) trading as Synonymous.

The Synonymous (‘Synonymous’ ‘we’ ‘us’) website (our ‘Site’) and related services are available to you in accordance with the terms and conditions set out below.

About Our Products

Every Synonymous Eyewear Chain is personally inspected prior to leaving our Studio.

Our products are handmade and therefore can be fragile or show signs of manipulation from the creation process. 

Care must be taken to prolong the life of your product.  Please do not expose your Synonymous Eyewear Chain to water, especially salt water, or extreme heat/sunlight as this will degrade the product and cause discoloration.  Products will show signs of age over time and plating may erode so please treat your Synonymous Eyewear Chain with care.

We stand by our product 100% and if there is ever an issue with your Synonymous Eyewear Chain please contact us and we will do our best to resolve and accommodate your request.   Thank you for your support.

Image & Representation

Each Synonymous product is made especially for Synonymous and there may be size and colour variations from one item to another.  We take no responsibility if an individual product happens to be different to how it looks on our website.  We trust you value craftsmanship and uniqueness the same way we do.

We have made every effort to display the colours and designs of our products as accurately as possible on the Site. During the design process some changes may be made and we cannot guarantee that you will receive the exact product shown on the site or that your computer monitor's display of any colour will be accurate.
