Repairs

Jewelry that is worn everyday may eventually need repairs - we can repair your piece for life.

Your jewelry is designed to withstand the rigors of everyday modern life, but keep in mind that they are still made from precious metals and delicate stones, so a bit of TLC can go a long way.

Take a peek at our home care guide to better preserve your jewelry. We offer free repairs on items up to 6 months from receipt as long as damage is not incurred by the wearer. Damage cause will be assessed upon receiving the returned product.

The warranty does not cover product loss or theft. If the piece is repaired or resized by any third party, the warranty will be voided. The warranty covers the loss of any side stones up to .05 carat. The warranty DOES NOT cover center / engagement ring stones - this should be added as a rider to your renters or home-owners insurance. 

Ring sizing

In order to accurately size your ring, we recommend visiting your local jeweler for an in-house sizing. For alternative methods refer to our ring size guide. Additionally we have purchasable ring sizers that can be delivered straight to your home. We can adjust the size of your piece at your request. Ring sizing is $75 and individual customization charges beyond sizing will be accessed on a case-by-case basis. Please note that eternity bands (or any bands with stones set 360 degrees), cannot be resized. We can reset the stones in a bigger size at cost for $200-300. 

Payment options

You can select your preferred payment method at checkout.

We accept secure payments for both local & international customers via Credit Cards, Debit Cards, and Shop Pay.

We also accept offline payments via direct bank deposit.

Note that additional exchange fee may apply if your currency is other than US dollars.

Natural vs cultivated diamonds

We see the beauty in all diamonds and respect the customer's choice to choose their diamond’s origin. Today, over 50% of our customers opt for cultivated diamonds. 

Ethically sourced natural diamonds

Natural, mined diamonds are ethically sourced by our trusted vendors. All of our vendors have protocol in place to guarantee certification through the Kimberly process. The Kimberly process regulates trade in rough diamonds to prevent the flow of conflict diamonds while helping to protect legitimate trade in rough diamonds.

Cultivated Diamonds

Lab grown diamonds, also known as cultivated diamonds, are 100% atomically the same as mined diamonds, but are created aboveground in a lab. Additionally, they are a sustainable and affordable alternative to natural diamonds. Stones over .75 carat are typically 40-50% less than their mined counterparts.

We are using AI to pull from nearly 50K diamonds across several hand selected vendors. Sometimes, one vendor has a higher quality stone at a lower price (if you see this, it really is the better deal, they may be pushing to move certain carat weights - we see it in real life too!) Our AI is constantly learning.

Heirloom / outside Stones

We work with outside stones on a case by case basis.

We do not work with stones sourced from competitors, inclusive of Blue Nile, Brilliant Earth, and anyone in the NYC Diamond District. We are diamond dealers who work with reputable mines and cultivators. Additionally, when we set stones we supply, we are liable for loss or damage until the product is shipped.

If you have an heirloom stone you’d like us to set in one of our current designs, or collaborate on a custom design with Shahla, we require a stone certificate (for your stones dimensions) and an appraisal (for an insured shipping value). We are not liable for lost or damaged stones in transit or in setting. Although we will do everything possible to return your heirloom stone back to you in your new setting, there is always a risk of loss or breakage of stone(s). If the stone is lost in transit, you will be entitled to the value the stone was insured for. However, we cannot offer compensation or replacement if the stone is broken during setting. To prevent this from happening, we only work with SI2+ stones to minimize any chance of damage in setting.

We are not personally liable for any jewelry once it ships. We use a 3rd party jeweler’s insurance during shipping which is void once the package is received by the recipient. It is your responsibility to insure your jewelry, specifically engagement rings upon arrival. We are happy to provide you with an appraisal for replacement value (what you paid) upon request. Your insurance rider should include loss, loss of just the center stone, and theft.
