Lifetime Warranty — We guarantee our rings to be free of manufacturing defects upon delivery. We cover the cost of all repairs on your mounting for the first year, including free replacement of small stones (under 2mm). Thereafter, repair costs are passed through to you at a discounted rate.

Center stones (diamond/sapphire/other) are not included in this warranty and would need to be covered by way of your own insurance, we recommend looking into Jeweler's Mutual or inquiring with your home or renter's insurance coverage. 

Warranty is valid for normal advisable wear which includes adherence to annual service appointments. If the ring is noticeably damaged by way of being bent or showing improper care we will repair the ring at cost.

You are required to maintain your ring via Annual Care appointments to keep your warranty up to date and active.

We have an Annual Care Membership — All our clients are asked to participate in care of their jewelry. Regular maintenance does wonders to prevent serious repair work and heartbreaks.

We offer two service plans which include a deep cleaning, inspection of prongs and stones, refinishing, and retipping (when appropriate). Choose between:

In-Person Membership If you're able to regularly make it to our Sebastopol showroom.

Remote Membership for folks who cannot make it to our Sebastopol showroom.

Annual Care appointments are required for your Lifetime Warranty to stay active and valid. If 16 months lapses between care appointments, your Lifetime Warranty becomes void.
