The Best Chains to Ever Buy
Jewelers Jewelry Store's Return Policies

Want to Return it?

There are Many Reasons why someone would Want to Return Jewelry (Whether it be an Engagement Ring, Bracelet, Watch, or some other Kind of Bling)…



The Item could be Mis-Represented (Not being the Quality they Said it was), it could be a Gift that you would Never Wear, it could be Post Earrings and you don’t have Pierced Ears.

If it’s a Ring, maybe she doesn’t like the Style, Metal Choice, or Shape of Stone. Or Maybe, she just said “NO!”

No matter, the Point is

You WANT to RETURN it!

It Sounds like a Simple Enough Task, but there are Many Reasons why a Jeweler or Jewelry Store would Refuse that Request.

Reasons Like:

  • It’s Past the Return Date
  • You Can’t Return Sale Items
  • You Don’t Have the Original Receipt
  • The Item was Special Ordered, or Custom Designed
  • The Item was Sized
  • The Item was Engraved

So you see, you may WANT to RETURN it and get your Money Back, but often you are left Holding the Ring!

Read their Return Policy FIRST!

Before you Buy, it’s Wise to Read the Store’s Return Policy First. Just to know what you’re in for. Some Places Allow 60 Days for a Full Refund, others 30 Days, some just 7 Days, and still Others may have NO Return Policy (Only Exchange). Plus some may even Charge a Restocking Fee! It may not be a 100% Money Back Guarantee! Would you have know?

You MUST Read the Policy to Find out

To know if your Item “Qualifies” as a Doable Return, READ the Policies Below.



I’ve listed some of the Biggest Nationwide Jeweler’s Return Policies (as of this Date: 09-03-2015), as well as some Huge Online Stores like James Allen, Blue Nile (Top Two Leaders of Loose Diamonds Online), Etsy, Ebay, or Amazon.

So whether it’s Kay Jewelers, Zales, Helzberg Diamonds, Fred Meyer Jewelers, Tiffanys, or Pandora, their Official Return Policies are HERE: (Taken Directly from their Website)

Enjoy! :)

James Allen

James Allen’s Return Policy

James Allen Risk-Free Retail

100% Full Refund

We stand behind every item we sell and we want you to experience total satisfaction with your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you may return it within 30 days for a full refund or exchange – no questions asked. Many retailers charge a restocking fee for returns; we don’t charge you a cent.

Lifetime Warranty

The lifetime warranty on your jewelry covers services like cleaning, polishing, prong tightening and rhodium plating — all for just a small shipping charge. The lifetime warranty also covers the loss of side diamonds, assuming that the loss was not caused by damage.

However, even with our lifetime warranty, it is important to have your jewelry insured in the event of loss, damage or theft. We trust Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company and its Perfect Circle® Jewelry Insurance. Jewelers Mutual has specialized in jewelry insurance for over a century, and they make insuring your jewelry quick and easy.

Free Shipping

James Allen provides fast, free shipping to all our shipping destinations, regardless of the order amount. In addition to free shipping, you can rest assured knowing that all items are securely packaged and fully insured while in transit to your home or office.

Shipping Methods

U.S orders greater than $500 in value are shipped via FedEx Priority Overnight. International orders over $500 in value are shipped via FedEx International Priority.

U.S. orders under $500 in value are shipped via FedEx Two Day Saver. International orders under $500 in value are shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Order status and tracking information are available from the JamesAllen.com website here.

Please note: We only ship after your order has been completed and passed quality inspection. Loose diamonds are shipped once they are received and inspected. All other jewelry and engagement rings will be shipped in one to three weeks, depending on the production schedule of that item.

For your protection, James Allen always:

  • Insures and registers all items for their full value
  • Uses only FedEx services for all domestic orders, in order to deliver high value packages in the fastest and safest manner. For international orders under $500, James Allen ships via USPS (United States Postal Service).
  • Requires that all deliveries be made to a physical business or home address
  • Disallows delivery to P.O Box addresses
  • Requires an adult to sign for the package
  • Allows for an alternative shipping address

At the time your order is placed, we will collect your billing and shipping information. For your own protection we suggest that any credit card order be shipped to a valid address on file with the credit card company, although alternate addresses are acceptable. We can also arrange to have your package shipped to a local FedEx station for pick-up. You may call our offices at any time for assistance locating the nearest FedEx facility.

International Shipping

JamesAllen.com offers free shipping and insurance to all our shipping destinations. International customers will be responsible for any duties, VAT, taxes or surcharges levied or charged by their country, so please check with local authorities prior to placing your order to confirm taxes and duties. Military personnel located overseas may also have their packages shipped to an APO or FPO location free of charge. Please keep in mind, however, that APO/FPO shipments are done through the US Postal Service and can take up to three weeks to arrive.

Free Returns

If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your order, you may return it within the first 30 days of shipment for a full refund or exchange – we even pay for the return shipping. Free returns only apply to U.S customers and are limited to three per customer. To return an item, simply follow the return procedures listed below:

Additional Terms & Conditions

Items sent to our office without a RAN number, packages shipped beyond the 30-day return period, or packages that are improperly packaged or uninsured will be refused receipt.

Returned merchandise must be undamaged and in “new and unused condition” to be deemed acceptable for refund or exchange. Items showing obvious signs of wear or alteration by a jeweler other than James Allen will not be accepted .

Loose diamonds must also be accompanied by the original laboratory grading report or a $150 charge will be assessed to replace the certificate.

Since we cannot resize eternity bands and tension rings, they need to be completely re-crafted. So it is very important that you order the correct size at the time of purchase. If you need help determining a ring size, use our handy ring sizer or contact us.

International returns are not subject to our free return policy, and special orders are not returnable.

Amazon

Amazon’s Return Policies

Amazon.com Return Policy

Items shipped from Amazon.com, including Warehouse Deals, can be returned within 30 days of receipt of shipment in most cases. Some products have different policies or requirements associated with them.

Seller Return Policy

When you order from a seller that fulfills and ships its own inventory (also called a third party seller), your return will be sent back to the seller instead of Amazon.com. While most sellers offer a returns policy equivalent to Amazon.com’s, some seller returns policies may vary. You can view the Seller’s return policy before you purchase an item by viewing the Returns and Refunds Policy section of the Seller’s profile page. Once you’ve ordered, you can select your order in the Online Returns Center, to view the seller’s return policy. Third party sellers must either provide a return address within the United States or pay for return shipping to an international address. If a seller does not provide a return address in the United States or free return shipping to an international address, you may file an A-to-z Guarantee claim to seek help with your return. If the order is valued at $100 or more, insure the shipment for the value of the merchandise and ship your return with a signature shipping service. Items valued at over $75 must be returned to the seller with a trackable shipping service. For items below $75, we suggest USPS delivery confirmation service. If a package doesn’t arrive and you don’t use a trackable method to return or if you refuse the shipment as a method of return, we may not be able to cover you under the A-to-Z Guarantee.

Note: If the seller’s listing is eligible for Amazon Prime, it will be subject to the same return policies as items fulfilled by Amazon.com that are outlined on this page.

Automotive Items

If you have purchased an automotive item shipped from and sold by Amazon.com that is defective and is covered by a manufacturer’s published warranty, Amazon will either replace the item or refund the cost of the item for the life of the published warranty.

Baby Items

Baby items (excluding clothing sizes 0-24 months) can be returned within 90 days of receipt of shipment. Note: Breast pumps must be returned unused in their original condition with the factory seal and packaging intact.

Baby products fulfilled by Amazon qualify for free return shipping. The product is eligible for free return shipping if the item detail page includes “Free Returns” messaging. If your return is not a result of an Amazon error, we will not refund the original shipping fees.

Amazon's Return Policy


eBay

Ebay’s Return Policy

Returning an item

You can return some items you purchased on eBay, depending on the seller’s return policy. If you used same day delivery or free in-store pickup when you purchased your item and the seller accepts returns, return the item directly to the store where you purchased it.

Here’s what to expect when you need to return an item.

Return an item

Before you request a return, check the seller’s return policy in the listing for the seller’s return period and other information.

Some sellers are enrolled in eBay hassle-free returns, our automated return process. Other sellers have their own process for handling returns. Depending on the item and the seller, you may have different return options.

To return an item for a refund or replacement:

  1. Find the item in My eBay and select Return this item from the More actions drop-down menu.
  2. Select the reason for the return. Depending on the seller’s return preferences, we may put you in touch with the seller directly.
  3. If photos of the item would be helpful for documenting the condition of the item you bought and received, you can upload photos. Both eBay Customer Service and the seller can see them. You can upload as many as 10 photos (PNG, JPEG, BMP, or GIF; max size 5MB). You can add photos until the return process is closed. Uploaded photos can be removed only by contacting Customer Service.
  4. If the seller uses eBay hassle-free returns or chooses to use an eBay-generated shipping label, we provide you with a return shipping label and packing slip. If a shipping label isn’t available for the item, we ask you to contact the seller about alternative shipping arrangements. The seller may also provide you their own shipping label.
  5. Pack the item carefully. Include the packing slip, apply the shipping label, and send the item back to the seller. You must return the item within 5 business days of requesting the return. It’s a good practice to include tracking information when returning an item.
  6. If an eBay-generated shipping label is used, you can track the status of the returned item in the Purchase history section of My eBay. Find the returned item and click View return details from the More actions drop-down menu.
  7. The seller refunds you within 6 business days of receiving the returned item. If you’re requesting a replacement item and the seller uses hassle-free returns, the seller ships it to you within 5 business days of the date you request a return.

Item eligibility for eBay hassle-free returns

If the seller uses eBay hassle-free returns, we automatically guide you to use this process to return an item if:

  • The seller listed the item on eBay.com
  • You want a full refund or replacement item, not a partial refund or exchange.
  • You paid for the item with PayPal
  • Both the seller’s return address and your address are in the US.
  • The seller listed the item in a category covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee.
  • You haven’t already asked us to step in and help with the transaction under the eBay Money Back Guarantee, opened a PayPal Purchase Protection case, or requested a chargeback on the credit card associated with your PayPal account.
  • We haven’t suspended you from using eBay hassle-free returns

Things to keep in mind:

  • Request a return by the time specified in the Return policy section of the listing.
  • If we ask you to contact the seller, work with the seller directly and follow their return instructions.
  • Otherwise, you’re issued a return shipping label and packing slip. Then:
    • Ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of requesting the return when returning an item for a refund.
    • Ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of requesting the return when returning an item for a replacement. If you haven’t sent the item back after 30 days, you’re charged for the second item.
  • Return the item in the same condition as you received it. See the item condition policy for returns for more information.
  • If you’re returning an item because it didn’t match the listing description, the eBay Money Back Guarantee may be able to help. Learn more about the eBay Money Back Guarantee.

Returning an item if the seller doesn’t use eBay hassle-free returns

If the seller doesn’t use eBay hassle-free returns, you can still start a return request in My eBay.

After you submit a return request, the seller works with you to make sure the item is returned safely.

Return shipping charges

Either you or the seller is responsible for return shipping charges, depending on the seller’s return policy and the reason for the return. In most cases, sellers require that buyers pay for return shipping, but some sellers offer free return shipping—check the Return policy section of the listing. If you’re returning an item because it isn’t as described in the listing, the seller is responsible for return shipping charges, regardless of the seller’s return policy.

When you’re responsible for return shipping charges, we charge your PayPal account if you ship the item using our shipping label. We may ask you to accept a billing agreement to authorize payment for these kinds of charges.

When you want to return an item using alternative shipping arrangements, and the seller is responsible for the return shipping charges, you must work with the seller to agree on the shipping service and cost before returning the item.

Return shipping charges when using eBay shipping labels

Anytime you use an eBay return shipping label, returns are shipped by either USPS First-Class or Priority Mail, depending on the item’s cost, package weight, and delivery time.

In some instances, return shipping charges may not be based on the actual weight of the package, but are an estimate. These charges are based on rates eBay negotiated with the USPS and are typically less than what you would pay at the post office for the same item.

Refunds

Most refunds are automatically adjusted for any applicable restocking fees or shipping charges.

When the item isn’t as described:

If you return an item because it’s not as described in the listing, arrives damaged, or is missing parts, then your refund is:

Total purchase price + plus original shipping = total refund

In these situations, the seller can’t charge a restocking fee and the seller pays the return shipping charges.

All other returns:

If you return an item for any other reason, including changing your mind about a purchase, the seller can keep any restocking fee specified in the listing Return policy.

In these situations, your original shipping charge usually isn’t refunded. Check the listing Return policy for specifics on shipping charges. You may also have to pay the return shipping charges.

For this type of return, your refund is usually the total purchase price, including item cost, sales tax, and other charges, less:

  • Original shipping (unless specified otherwise in the listing Return policy)
  • Restocking fee (if specified in the listing Return policy)
  • Return shipping (if specified in the listing Return policy)

When to ask us to step in and help

Most returns and refunds go smoothly, but if a seller doesn’t issue you a refund, you can ask us to step in and help. Depending on the seller’s return method, timelines may differ. We guide you to the correct timing as part of your return request in My eBay, but for reference:

  • You can ask us to step in and help if the seller doesn’t issue a refund within 6 business days of receiving the returned item, or within 6 business days of the estimated delivery date for the returned item if no tracking is used. You have 10 business days to ask us to step in and help after the seller’s time to issue a refund has passed.
  • If a seller isn’t using eBay hassle-free returns, you can ask us to step in and help 3 business days after you request a return, if the seller doesn’t respond to your return request.

If you use alternative shipping arrangements, return shipping charges won’t be included in any eBay Money Back Guarantee refunds, even if the seller agreed to pay return shipping charges. Learn more about the eBay Money Back Guarantee.

Replacements

Some sellers may offer you the option of returning an item for a replacement instead of a refund. A replacement is an item that is exactly the same as the original item was described in the listing.

You can request a replacement if:

  • The seller offers replacements in the listing Return policy.
  • The item arrives and isn’t as described in the listing, such as with a damaged part, or the item is defective in some way.
  • You’re returning the original item and want the exact same item as it was described in the listing as a replacement.
  • If the seller is using eBay hassle-free returns, the total refund value of the original item is less than $250.00.

Things to keep in mind when requesting a replacement:

  • If you’re requesting a replacement because the item wasn’t as described in the listing, such as with a damaged part, the seller is responsible for the return shipping charges. See Return shipping charges.
  • If you’re unable to return the item because it’s unsafe to ship (such as a ruptured and leaking battery) or broken beyond repair, the eBay Money Back Guarantee can help. Learn more about getting started with the eBay Money Back Guarantee.
  • If the seller is using eBay hassle-free returns:
    • The seller ships the replacement to you within 5 business days of when you request the return in My eBay. You can track the progress of your replacement item in the Purchase history section of My eBay. Find the returned item and click View return details from the More actions drop-down menu.
    • Ship the item back to the seller within 5 business days of requesting the return.
    • If you don’t ship the original back to the seller within 30 days, you’re charged for the replacement item.
    • If you send the original item back to the seller, and the seller doesn’t send a replacement, we treat the return as a refund.

When to ask us to step in and help with the eBay Money Back Guarantee

  • If you didn’t receive a replacement, or you received your replacement but still aren’t satisfied, you have 14 days from either the day the replacement was delivered to you, or the day the original was returned to the seller– whichever is latest–to ask us to step in and help.
  • If you use alternative shipping arrangements, return shipping charges aren’t included in any eBay Money Back Guarantee refunds, even if the seller agreed to pay return shipping charges.
    Learn more about the eBay Money Back Guarantee.

Exchanges

Some sellers may offer you the option of exchanging an item.

For exchanges—for a different size or color, for example—we ask that you contact the seller directly before starting a return. You can also contact the seller from My eBay.

Alternative return shipping arrangements

You may need to use alternative shipping arrangements when:

  • Shipping a return with insurance
  • Returning multiple packages
  • An item is outside USPS guidelines
  • Shipping charges exceed the refund amount
  • An item was delivered through freight or local pickup

When the seller is responsible for return shipping charges and you need to make alternative shipping arrangements, contact the seller to agree on the service and cost before sending the item. Make sure that you include the packing slip, tracking, and for items valued at $750 or more, delivery confirmation.

When using alternative shipping arrangements, either you or the seller pays for return shipping charges.

Ebay's Return Policy


Etsy

Etsy’s Return Policies

Refunds and Returns

Since Etsy is a marketplace of independent shops, refunds, returns, and exchanges are handled differently from seller to seller.

For Buyers

In general, each seller on Etsy sets their own policies regarding returns and refunds. These policies should be displayed in each seller’s Shop Policies page.

If there is a problem with an order, contact the seller directly first.

Here are a few resources that may help you with returns and refunds:

  • Canceling a Purchase
  • Contacting a Seller
  • Report a Problem with an Order
  • Finding Your Refund
  • Buyer Protection on Etsy

For Sellers

As a seller on Etsy, you are expected to clearly state your policies about returns and refunds in your Shop Policies page. These policies are also expected to fall in line with Etsy’s policies.

Let buyers know how you, as a shop owner, manage and run your shop–including how you’d handle any issues or problems with a transaction.

If you do have a problem with a transaction, it’s best to contact the buyer directly via Conversations. Buyers are also encouraged to contact you if they experience any issues.

Here are a few resources for returns and refunds on Etsy:

  • Canceling a Sale
  • Contacting a Buyer After an Order
  • Refunding a transaction through Direct Checkout or PayPal.
  • Seller Case Resolution

Issues with a Transaction

Please keep in mind that Etsy provides the marketplace, but isn’t directly involved in transactions between individual buyers and sellers.

If you have trouble with an order and can’t sort it out directly with your seller or buyer, you can file what’s called a “case.”

The Case System

Opening a case is the best way to let a seller and Etsy know that you’re having issues with an order.

The case system on Etsy is where buyers and sellers work together to resolve their issues. If necessary, Etsy Trust & Safety can help bring a dispute to a conclusion.

Please note: If a buyer does not formally file a case, Etsy cannot get involved.
