making art affordable
Own Art interest free loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,500 repayable over 10 months.
What can I buy?
You can only buy pieces of jewellery featured in our designer collections, bespoke pieces of jewellery, ethical wedding bands, and ethical jewellery collections.
If the customer doesn’t pay interest on the loan, who does?
The cost of the loan is subsidised by the scheme funders Arts Council England, Creative Scotland and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, making it affordable for our member galleries to operate as well as guaranteeing the 0% interest rate for customers..
How much can I borrow?
Loans are available up to £2,500 or as little as £100. The loan amount can be a part-payment towards an item that costs more than £2,500. Or you can buy several lower value items at a time with a combined value of up to £2,500 or more.
The amount you borrow is then paid back over 10 months in equal instalments – interest free.
There is no administrative charge or handling fee when you take out the loan so you will never be paying more for your purchase than the ticket price.
How do I apply?
Please bring two proofs of identification with you – one for proof of signature, such as a debit or credit card, and the other for proof of address. This could be a bank statement, utility bill or driver’s licence.
We will guide you through the loan application process which should only take 10 minutes or so. If your application is successful, you’ll be able to sign the agreement and take your jewellery away with you immediately.
