Goods that have been misused or tampered with will not be covered under our guarantee. Upon inspection by one of our experienced goldsmiths, if a manufacturing defect is confirmed, we will gladly repair the item at no charge or we will replace the item. Otherwise, an estimate for repairs will be given. Warranties on watches are dependent on each manufacturer’s terms and conditions.
Do you do special orders?
If the item you want isn’t quite your size or you would like some minor modifications to one of our items in stock, we can special order an item for you. A 50% non-refundable deposit is typically required and it takes approximately 4 to 8 weeks for the product to arrive. Note that the possibility of a special order is dependent on the item. There may be an additional charge on a special order item.
Do you offer custom-made jewellery?
Yes, if you would like to have a special piece designed just for you or would like to repurpose some of your older diamonds into something new, we offer custom-made jewellery in our stores. Please ask any sales associate to help you initiate the process. Your request will then be sent to our in-house design team and they will proceed to send you a quote and then a drawing of your custom design. Please note that we charge a $50 drawing fee, which will be credited back to you if you go ahead with your purchase. This fee is not charged if you are designing a matching band for an engagement ring that was purchased from us. Please be aware that a custom-made piece will be more expensive than our regular products as it will be a one-of-a-kind and will require more work.
