General lapidary rules apply.

Any item that is not damaged or modified from the original may be returned for a full refund, less shipping, within 10 days. Absolutely No questions asked!

All colors, weights and measurements are made to generally accepted lapidary tolerances and practices to the best of our ability, equipment and judgement. We do our best to get accurate color on our pictures, using a digital camera and 3200 degree K.  lights. In all cases what we see on the monitor is as close as we can get to what we see by eye comparison of the original. In some cases due to lighting or stone characteristics, reflection, chatoyance etc., we will use a picture editor to try and correct for a truer representation of color. However all monitors are not set the same and what we see may be different that what your monitor shows.
In all cases, your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us and we want you to be happy with your gem. Life is too short for any grief! so if you are not satisfied, PLEASE let us know and we'll do our best to resolve any problem!
