RETURNS, REFUNDS, AND EXCHANGE POLICY

RETURNS

Jewelry that is dropped shipped from our supplier, or shipped directly to the customer by Gemtree Creative Designs, can be returned within 14 days of purchase for refund only. All items must be returned in their original packaging. All jewelry must be returned unworn, undamaged, and in sellable condition. Any jewelry, such as Roman Glass jewelry, that has a certificate of authenticity must be returned with the certificate of authenticity. Any free gifts that were shipped with the purchase must also be returned with the item being returned for refund. If the free gift is not returned with the item we will reserve the right to not accept the entire return. Any jewelry or other return items that do not meet these return specifications will be returned to the buyer at the buyer's expense and no refund will be given. There are no exceptions to this policy other than a buyer's receipt of an item with a manufacturing defect.

EXCHANGING A PRODUCT WITH DEFECTS

Items we ship that arrive without damage, but appear defective on buyer examination, will after their return to Gemtree Creative Designs and subsequent inspection that validates the claim of defect, be eligable for; 1) a full refund of the puchase and shipping costs, or 2) exchange and delivery of a duplicate item at no additional cost to the buyer. When you select to exchange a defective item we will (if the item is available); 1) ship the replacement to you at no cost, and 2) give you a credit that's equal to your cost of shipping the defective item back to us. For example, we'll give you a $10.00 credit in the form of a coupon code if it cost you $10.00 to insure and ship the defective item. The coupon code that we send you can be used on any item, at anytime. Just type in the code during checkout. If a duplicate item is not availble we will provide a refund (including shipping costs), and we'll send you a shipping credit coupon code as previously described.

RETURNS ON CUSTOM ORDERS (JEWELRY MADE AND DESIGNED AT THE BUYERS REQUEST)

Personalized custom jewelry can not be returned for refund. A restock fee will be assessed equal to the cost of the materials that were used to make the item. Materials are components such as silver, gold, and stones that have been purchased or taken from inventory and used in the construction of the custom jewelry piece, the combined materials will be used to assess the restocking fee. Precious metals in the piece will be assessed by weight at the metals' currently published spot price, and any stone(s) in the piece will be assessed at their current market value.

Contact Gemtree Creative Designs by email (customerservice @gemtreecreativedesigns.com) or by phone (at (520) 308-4761) to request a CUSTOM RMA number anytime prior to the 90 day expiration period.
