Lifetime Warranty

We offer a lifetime warranty on all of our jewelry and new watches, pre-owned watches come with a 5 year warranty. For our jewelry pieces, we cover any defects in craftsmanship for the life of the piece as long as it has been well maintained. We do not, and cannot,cover accidental damage, incidental damage, normal wear and tear, theft, accidental loss, or any damage that our gemologists deem is not due to craftsmanship related issues. If the piece has been altered in any way, our warranty no longer covers it unless the work has been done by Stein Diamonds. We will usually do our best to fix your piece regardless as a service to you, but please note that if we cannot remedy the problem and it was not due to craftsmanship, we will also charge you to ship it back. If, however, your piece is covered, we will ship it back to you at our cost. The lifetime warranty only covers the original owner of the piece and is not transferable.

For watches, we offer a free lifetime warranty with Stein Diamonds. We do not, and cannot, cover accidental damage, incidental damage, normal wear and tear, theft, accidental loss, or any damage that is not due to an internal malfunction. Watches come complete with all boxes, instruction manuals, serial numbers, and dealer stamped warranty paperwork whenever possible or applicable. Stein Diamonds backs our own Lifetime Warranty which covers the mechanism of the watch for as long as you own it. All wear and tear issues are the customer's responsibility. If we cannot fix your watch and it is deemed to be covered under our warranty, we will replace it with a watch of equal or greater value. Each warranty case will be considered individually. In the circumstance that your watch may incur a problem send it back to us for repair. If it is within the manufactures warranty period we will take care of the necessary paperwork for repair.

To qualify for the warranty, the watch must have all original papers as well as the original Stein Diamonds invoice. The watch may not have been modified in any way, may not have been opened by anyone except authorized dealers for the watch, and if it has been opened all proper documentation from the dealer is required. We cannot cover any defects in the battery or if the manufacturers' specifications for the care of the watch were not followed. Please notify us that you will be shipping any product to our office. Stein Diamonds recommends that you insure any piece that you will be shipping back to us. We will usually do our best to fix your piece regardless as a service to you if we can, but please note that if we cannot remedy the problem or if the problem was not due to an internal malfunction, you will be charged to have the watch shipped back. The lifetime warranty only covers the original owner of the watch and is not transferable.

Certificates of DiamondsEvery loose diamond sold by Stein Diamonds has been analyzed and graded by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA, American Gem Society Laboratories (AGSL), or European Gemological Laboratories (EGL). Stein Diamonds works with only these independent laboratories, as they are the most respected laboratories in the diamond industry. These laboratories are known for having the strictest, consistent, and most unbiased systems for grading diamonds. Diamonds that are accompanied by these grading reports are the most highly valued in the industry, as their quality is considered guaranteed. We also have our own GIA-trained gemologists on staff who grade diamonds to insure their quality for you. Please note, however, that all certifications from any lab or individual are opinions only and will vary from expert to expert.
Lifetime Diamond UpgradesThe Stein Diamonds family is proud to offer a full lifetime upgrade on all Stein Diamonds loose diamonds. Stein Diamonds will issue full purchase price credit on loose diamonds and allow lifetime upgrades. For example, if you buy a loose diamond for $3,500 from Stein Diamonds today, in two years, send us the diamond. Using the credit, you could purchase a $7,500 diamond for $4,000. As long as your diamond is well-maintained and in its original condition you may trade it in for full credit towards the purchase of another diamond, a piece of fine jewelry or a watch. If your diamond has incurred damage, we will accept the diamond back after deducting the cost of polishing and reshaping the diamond. For further inquiry, please contact us and see if your diamond purchase qualifies for lifetime upgrades.
