JEWELLERY

With a ring purchase from Ann-Louise valued at $300 or more, there is a one time sizing of a finger size up or down, free of charge, and is valid within 1 year from the date of purchase with verified proof of purchase. A surcharge will apply for each size after the first size. The free sizing is limited to the size range available on the website. Sizes beyond availability will be subject to surcharges and may need to be special ordered. Please note that not all jewelry items can be sized due to the nature of the item, such as design, metal, stones, and age. Additional shipping charges may apply if the ring cannot be brought to one of our stores for sizing

Please contact us at info@annlouise.ca and we can arrange a special order for you, which can take approximately 4 to 8 weeks for the product to arrive. There may be an additional charge for special ring size orders.

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 charged accordingly as it will be a one-of-a-kind and will require the time and skills of craftsmen.

All our diamonds are purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict and are fully compliant with United Nations Resolutions and the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme. We therefore guarantee that all our diamonds are conflict free.

At this time, we have temporarily suspended our in-store independent appraisal clinics. However, we will still be able to assist with independent jewellery appraisals. Please contact your local store for more details.

With the purchase of a diamond solitaire ring, pendant, or earrings, you’ll be able to upgrade your piece within the lifetime of the diamond to another that is at least double the carat weight or double the original purchase price. Simply provide original documentation and proof of purchase.

Lab gown diamonds will be excluded from the above.

White gold is composed of pure gold (a soft, yellow metal) mixed with alloy (often nickel or palladium) to turn it as white as possible and to add strength. As the yellow hue from the pure gold cannot be completely eliminated from the alloying process, white gold jewellery is then plated with rhodium to give it a bright, white finish. Over time, through regular wear, the plating will wear off - especially at the bottom of rings which most often come in contact with other surfaces. This is very normal and part of the experience of owning white gold. White gold can be replated for a fee, however, we advise against constantly re-plating.

Because there is a possibility that bacteria or viruses may live under or on our rings, it would be advantageous to remove them prior to washing. Rub your ring with warm water and mild dish soap and place it safely in a dish or bowl when washing your hands so that it doesn't disappear down the drain or behind the sink. Before placing your clean ring back on, lotion your hands first because lotion and debris may build-up behind any stones which may not only lead to skin irritation but also cause unnecessary wear and loosening of prongs.

The alcohol found in hand sanitizer may cause tarnishing or corrosion on your ring. Rhodium plating found on white gold rings may especially wear down sooner with more frequent interaction with sanitizers and soaps. To protect your jewellery, remove them when you apply hand sanitizer. Wait for your hands and fingers to completely dry before putting your jewelry back on.

Yes we do. Please contact your nearest Ann-Louise store location for availability.

Our stores only carry natural gemstones and diamonds. We do not carry man-made synthetic stones with the exception of a small selection of cubic zirconia jewellery for our entry-level line.

Select earrings can be purchased individually but only by special order. Please email info@annlouise.ca or visit a store for more information and pricing.

We sell nose jewellery. We do not provide nose piercings.

Yes, we have many more styles in-store that are not listed on our website. This includes tungsten jewellery, silver jewellery, Swarovski, and Pandora pieces.

By request, we do offer an Ann-Louise certificate for any piece purchased at our store. The certificate includes a full description of the piece like the karat gold and gemstone weight, the purchaser's name, the date, and retail value. We stand behind all our pieces and guarantee the accuracy of the certificate.

Promise rings can be thought of as “mini” engagement rings. We normally identify a ring as a promise ring when the center stone is below 0.20.ct.

Contact a store location directly by phone or email to inquire about an specific measurement of a piece.

We would not categorize our jewellery as hypoallergenic because it is not pure gold. 14k gold is a mixture of 58% gold and the remaining percent is other metals such as silver, nickel copper etc. If you have worn 14k before without reaction then this should be ok. Generally speaking, karat gold cannot be classified as hypo-allergenic because most people react differently to the alloying metals used. Pure gold is mixed with metals such as silver, nickel, and copper to impart colour (white gold or yellow gold) and to add strength. If you have worn 10K or 14K gold in the past without issue, then our jewellery should be able to be worn without issue.

We generally carry size 6 at the store for viewing and then your specific size can be ordered.

WATCHES

Watch bracelets vary in size depending on style, brand, model, etc. Because there are many variables, we will not be able to size your watch prior to your shipment. We suggest bringing your watch into one of our locations. If this is not possible, you can also bring it to a local jeweler for accurate sizing.

Yes, we are able to size your watch in-store after purchase. Note that we cannot accept returns or exchanges on watches once they have been sized.

If the watch was purchased at Ann-Louise, we can order a replacement strap from the manufacturer.

Yes, we are an authorized seller for all the watch brands we carry in-store and online. They all come with their original boxes and applicable warranties.

Ann-Louise is an authorized dealer for every watch brand that we carry. Each watch is covered by a limited manufacturer’s warranty. If your watch has a defect that is covered by the manufacturer warranty, please refer to the documentation that came with your watch to find a service centre near you.
