Copyright © ThomasO Designs. All Rights Reserved.
We guarantee the structural integrity of a jewelry piece under the conditions of normal wear against the defects of the craftsmanship. Regular maintenance is our customer's responsibility and can be done at a local jewelry store.
We will replace lost small accent stones within one year. We also do most repairs. A customer will be responsible for shipping a jewelry piece to ThomasO Jewelry Designs. If a ring was purchased without a central stone and set by another jeweler, or resized, or modified in any way, the warranty is voided.
We cannot offer warranty for any central stones, but you can obtain an insurance with a private jewelry insurance company. The cost of the replacement depends on the gem's price and availability as well as the ring's design.
Please contact us with a detailed description of the problem and a photo, so we can evaluate what can be done to fix it.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us through the etsy conversation system, so we can discuss how to solve the problem. Jewelry pieces (pendants, earrings, necklaces, bracelets) which haven't been customized (sized or modified) are returnable within 15 days after being received. Please contact us before sending us anything, otherwise we cannot be responsible for any piece returned to us without proper authorization. Any returned items will be refunded the item purchase price. Shipping fees are nonrefundable.
Rings and bands made to order in the size specified by the customer are not returnable. However, ThomasO Jewelry Designs would like for you to be happy with your purchases, so if there is any problem, please contact us and we'll find the way to solve it.
We accept payments by all major credit cards, Paypal, personal or certified Check, and money orders. Payments sent by mail are paid to the order of ThomasO Jewelry Designs LLC.
Down payment (one third of the total price) reserves the piece for the buyer with the set price. We also would need to know when the buyer plans to pay the remaining amount (in one or two installments) and set up a payment plan. $5 processing fee will be added to each subsequent payment. When we receive the final payment, the item is made and mailed to the buyer.
Please note that when ThomasO Jewelry Designs give a quote to a perspective buyer, the quoted price is valid for 3 months. We adjust prices according to the changing precious metal and gem market at time of commitment. When requesting a price quote or making an inquiry for a ring, please provide us with the ring size needed.
Please make sure you give us the correct ring size when placing your order. For international orders, you may use an online ring size conversion tool like this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_size
Once the ring is sized it is none returnable.
If the ring doesn't fit right because of the inaccurate sizing information, and it has to be resized, please contact us. Fees for resizing a ring start at $25 plus shipping. The amount could be more for gold or multi-metal rings. It also depends on the gem type used in the setting. Most colored gems cannot withstand the heat needed for soldering, so they have to done with a laser which incurs a higher fee.
