Are your diamonds and gemstones ethically sourced?
Yes, all of our diamonds and gemstones are ethically sourced and come from conflict free regions. We are a proud member of the World Federation Diamond Bourses (WFDB) and we comply with the Kimberley Process.
Do you sell loose diamonds?
Yes, in addition to our diamond jewellery, we also sell loose diamonds. If we do not have what you are looking for in stock, we’d be happy to source it for you.
If a ring is too big or small, can it be resized for free?
The short answer is yes. Most rings can easily be resized for free. In some cases, resizing is not an option but we can create a new ring for you. However, sometimes this will entail an additional fee.
What happens if a bracelet is too big?
When a bracelet is too big, it can be shortened for free. However, when it is too small, it will generally cost to make it bigger since this almost always requires extra stones or gold.
Do your diamonds come with certificates?
Most of our diamonds and gemstones come with a certificate. The certification of every item can be viewed on the respective product page. Most items are either certified by the GIA (diamonds) or by the GRS (gemstones).
What’s your return policy?
We offer a 100% money back guarantee within 30 days of receiving the product. Please refer to our return policy for exact details.
Do I need to pay custom fees?
This depends on the customer’s location. We take care of the import/custom fees for orders from the USA, UK, China, and HK. Custom fees in other countries should be handled by the customer. We are here to assist in any way we can, as we have much experience with custom authorities in different countries.
Do you buy second hand diamonds?
Yes. We are open to purchasing your diamonds if you are able to provide a certificate, a clear picture, and a price.
How do I return an item I don’t want?
