WARRANTY & CARE
For as long as you own your jewelry, we will provide any repairs that you require. Our highly skilled bench jewelers will evaluate your piece and communicate with you about recommended repairs. In addition, you may send us your jewelry at any time for a complimentary thorough cleaning and inspection, just to ensure it's in top shape and sparkling beautifully!
There are a few limitations to our warranty:
The replacement of lost center stones valued over $200 is not included in our warranty. We recommend you obtain insurance for your piece for the unlikely event of a focal stone falling out or becomes damaged.
Clients are responsible for shipping costs to and from our studio for cleanings, inspections, and repair work. International clients, please check with your customs office about whether or not import fees or customs will be charged on repaired pieces. These costs are also your responsibility.
All repair work (with the exception of replacement focal stones valued over $200) is free within the first two years of ownership (unless specified otherwise). After two years of ownership, labor and/or materials fees may apply for your repair service. It is normal for minor wear and tear to occur when fine jewelry is worn daily. If your piece's repair needs fall beyond normal wear and tear, we will let you know about the labor or materials fee associated with your service after it is evaluated by one of our jewelers.
The warranty is void if you take your piece to another jeweler for resizing or repair work. Please send it to us, as we know the designs and are highly trained to work with such intricate pieces!
Warranty will also be considered void if we conclude that damage has been intentionally done to the piece.
Softer stones like Opal and Moonstone that are set in rings are not covered by the warranty, as they should not be worn on a daily basis, nor exposed to any chemicals.
Our current timeline for repairs is 2-4 weeks from when we receive your piece.
To keep your jewelry in great condition, we recommend:
Removing all jewelry before being exposed to chemicals of any kind (including cleaning chemicals, lotions, soaps and makeup), before swimming, showering, or exercising, before doing outdoor work or gardening, and before heavy lifting.
Clean your jewelry regularly using warm water, Dawn dish soap, warm water, and a soft toothbrush.
We will accept cancellations within 3 hours of purchase. All of our pieces are made to order, completely by hand.
We do not accept returns or exchanges. We will only accept exchanges if a product is defective due to an error on our end. The client must contact us within one day of the tracking number showing that the package has been delivered.
If a size is ordered that is incorrect and needs to be changed, please contact us within 3 hours of placing the order so we can adjust it. Some of the pieces we make cannot be resized, and will need to be fully remade. The client is responsible for paying the full cost of the correctly sized piece plus the full cost of the incorrectly sized piece.
Expedited order processing/shipping is available upon request, for an additional fee (For U.S. orders only). Please note that this option might not be available during busy times of year (Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Christmas, etc)
Current production time is 2-3 weeks from the day we receive the order (not including shipping time). Exodus Goldsmiths will not be held responsible for packages that are delayed, returned, damaged, lost, or stolen during transit. Once the package leaves our hands, we have absolutely no control over it. Client will have to contact the United States Postal Service to ask about any possible reimbursement on their part. USPS can be contacted at 1-800-275-8777.
As of right now, we are unable to offer payments plans or lay-away options on our jewelry pieces (unless arranged exclusively with us via email or phone with a contract). We are working on making this an option beginning in early 2021!
Q: Do you have a store near me?
A: No, we are currently exclusively online. If you live in the San Diego area, we may be able to meet in person for a private consultation. Every piece is made to order, and we order diamonds and precious metal as-needed to make our pieces, so we do not keep an inventory.
Q: Are your stones ethically sourced?
A: Absolutely. The majority of the diamonds we use are lab-created, so you always know that they are conflict-free. For our natural stones, we work exclusively with suppliers who abide by the Kimberly Process. Our standards are high and we are not willing to compromise on ethics that for the sake of convenience or price. The lowest quality diamonds we will work with are I-SI1.
Q: If I purchased a stone from another company, will you set it in one of your pieces?
A: No, unfortunately we do not work with stones purchased elsewhere. We have no way of verifying where the stone originated from (if it is conflict free) and our insurance company will not cover loss or damage to a stone we did not supply. Quality is our top priority, so all of our pieces are sold completely finished. However, if it is an antique or heirloom diamond we may be able to work with it.
Q: Do make custom pieces?
A: YES! Just fill out the form on our Custom Inquiries page and we'll get back to you ASAP about designing a completely unique piece for you. With every custom design, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit and a signed Custom Design Contract before we begin working on it. Custom pieces are non-returnable or refundable under any circumstances.
Q: Do offer payment plans? I can't pay the full balance up front.
A: Unfortunately we are unable to offer payment plans right now. Every cost comes straight out of our pocket until the balance is paid in full. We are a small business, so this just isn't feasible right now. We are working on partnering with a third party company to make this an option in the future. Please send us an email at email@example.com if you have any questions. In extenuating circumstances we may be able to accommodate a payment plan request, but only with a legal contract signed by both parties.
