We stand behind our products and warrant that all items will be free from manufacturing defects for the life of the products. If you believe your item has a manufacturing defect, you may return it to us for inspection. If we determine your merchandise is damaged due to a manufacturing defect, we will repair the merchandise.
If we determine that the damage is not caused by a manufacturing defect, then we will notify you and let you know if repair services are available at cost or otherwise (we do not manufacture gemstones).
Please note that slight irregularities and variations in craftsmanship or natural characteristics, or internal inclusions, visible or otherwise, in colored gemstones are unique and individual to each item. These characteristics are considered as part of the character of the item, and should not be considered a defect.
Precious metals and gemstones are delicate by nature and require care and attention to extend the lifetime of the jewelry piece. Rings in particular need routine preventative maintenance due to the constant impact incurred by day-to-day wear. Issues that you may encounter from regular wear such as a bent band, missing or broken diamonds, worn out, bent or broken prongs are considered “wear and tear” and will not be covered by our warranty. Since these occurrences are anticipated through the lifetime of your rings, it is recommended to obtain insurance coverage for the possibility of loss, theft or damage which is not covered by Earth Minded Gem. In addition, damage caused during sizing or services performed by someone other than Earth Minded Gem will not be covered by our warranty.
Ring Care and Preventative Maintenance
Earth Minded Gem recommends visiting your local jeweler every 6-12 months to maintain the beauty and integrity of your ring. Regular maintenance will help ensure the security of your diamonds. This care is particularly essential in rings, as our hands are subject to constant impact during regular daily activity. During the preventative maintenance, your ring should be reviewed for structural integrity and loose or damaged diamonds. After a thorough cleaning and polishing of the metal, each diamond should be checked and tightened as loosening is expected. Rhodium plating is the final step of 14k and 18k white gold.
Your Earth Minded Gem purchase includes complimentary service of tightening, polishing, rhodium plating and cleaning for the first year of your fine jewelry. Items shipped to Earth Minded Gem for routine maintenance are subject to a nominal shipping fee.
