Special Orders

Every so often, you will not be able to find the precise combination of diamond and setting that you want on our Website. In such instances, you may make a specific request through this Website, or you may email us and we will make every effort to assist you.

Diamond Certificates

Loose diamonds over 1/2ct are shipped with a diamond grading report and certificate of value. A grading report is written and signed by a diamond grading expert at one of two highly respected diamond laboratories, and they are very expensive to replace. Accordingly, we require that you return the diamond grading report if you return the diamond. If you fail to return the diamond grading report, you will be charged a replacement fee of $300 per carat of the graded diamond.

One Time Ring Resizing

We resize rings free of charge one time if requested to do so within 45 days of original shipment. Resizing generally takes 10-14 business days, but there are times during the year – particularly prior to and after the holidays – when it may take longer. Use our return policy instructions for shipping the ring back to us if you would like it resized.

Product Information on our Website

Some of the information that we display on our website concerning a product comes from the manufacturer, such as dimensions, weights, and on occasion the pictures. Each item is unique, weights and dimensions listed with for each product may vary slightly from the description. For products which are convex or rounded, these dimensions are usually measured prior to the rounding of the metal in the manufacturing process, and this may lead to slight discrepancies. In addition, for products where we state a weight, it is possible that the weight in any and all purchases will vary by as much as .05 carats from the stated weight. For those items which contain more than one diamond, we use the average grade and measurement for carat weight, color and clarity.

Product images are not actual size. We use our best efforts to provide you with an accurate view of our products on our Website. However, in order to let you see the product, it is sometimes necessary to make the product appear larger or smaller than the actual size. In addition, the settings on your monitor can affect color, size and shape slightly.

Gemstones

Gemstones may have been treated or enhanced by heating, oiling, diffusion, waxing, etc. These processes may not be permanent and may require special care by the consumer. Please consult one of our jewelry professionals with questions regarding the special care of these items. Colored diamonds may be irradiated and/or treated.

Laser Inscriptions

Some of our diamonds are laser inscribed. We do not provide laser inscription services ourselves. We can provide you with contact information for diamond grading labs that provide this service.

Kimberly Process Policy – No Conflict Diamonds

Our diamonds are purchased from well-known and respected suppliers. Each of these suppliers has agreed to the standards established by the Kimberley Process, which is an international system for assuring that diamonds come from sources that are conflict free.
