In-store and Online Returns

Our returns policy includes the rights you have under the New Zealand Consumer Protection Law and provides you with additional benefits in addition to those rights.
We understand if you change your mind and will refund any items that you are not completely happy with in accordance with the requirements detailed in our terms and conditions. Goods must be returned in saleable condition and be received by the sending store within 15 days from the order date. If you have changed your mind after purchasing earrings, for hygiene reasons we cannot offer you a refund, however these may be returned if faulty.


For purchases posted back, refunds will be credited to your original method of payment within 7 days of us receiving the item and the refund being approved. Please note that relevant shipping charges will be incurred for the cost involved in returning items, except in the case of faulty goods.

We accept online returns and exchanges in Veronika Maine stores, nationwide. For our New Zealand customers we accept returns to the following New Zealand stores; Veronika Maine Willis Street, Merivale & Shore City.

The item must be in a saleable condition, unworn with swing tags attached and returned within 15 days from the order date. Online returns and exchanges will only be accepted in-store upon presentation of your Tax Invoice. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept online returns at Ballantynes, or in any of our Australian stores if originally purchased in New Zealand or via the New Zealand website.

Outside the previously described timeframe, our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the New Zealand Consumer Protection Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure.


For faulty garment/warranty claims outside of the 15 day return period, please email your contact details with a description of the fault and accompanying photos to [email protected] If possible please include your original invoice number and the garment style code. The garment style code can usually be located inside the garment attached to the care label. We will respond to your email within two business days and provide you with additional information so that the claim may be submitted and assessed. Alternatively, you may take the garment to a Veronika Maine store in New Zealand.

Where a failure does not amount to a major failure, Cue & Co Pty Ltd. is entitled to choose between providing you with a repair, replacement or other suitable remedy. To obtain compensation, you will need to provide documentary evidence of the loss or damage suffered, and documentary evidence that such loss or damage was a reasonably foreseeable consequence of a failure by Cue & Co Pty Ltd to comply with a consumer guarantee under the New Zealand Consumer Protection Law.
To receive a refund for any reason within 15 days from the order date, please ensure that you comply with the instructions below.

Returns via post

  • If the garment is being returned because you have changed your mind, make sure the item or items are in the same condition you received them in, with all tags still attached. Items cannot be worn, washed or altered in any way. Failure to comply with these requirements will cause your refund to be rejected and returned to you at your cost.
  • Fill out the online return form as soon as possible after delivery to ensure that your parcel is back to us within 15 days of ordering. After completing the form, you will receive an email with a return number and instructions on how to send the order back to the store who originally filled your order.
  • To complete the return form, you will be required to enter your original invoice number, and e-mail address that you used to complete the purchase. If you are unable to locate these, please contact customer care for assistance.

  • For a change of mind return, a non-refundable fee of $10 will be deducted from the original purchase price of your order. If your return has been approved in accordance with the above requirements, the credit card used to process the original transaction will be used to process the refund for the full purchase price of each returned garment less the $10 return charge.
  • For a return where a garment has been assessed by Veronika Maine as being faulty, is not of acceptable or merchantable quality, is not fit for a particular purpose, does not match the description of the product, or does not match the sample of the product, the $10 shipping fee will be waived.

At this time Veronika Maine will provide you with options regarding Veronika Maine returning the garment or garments to you at your cost.
