JEWELLERY WARRANTY

Minichiello Jewellers includes a warranty for each piece of jewellery sold under conditions of normal wear and tear for the time period of one year. This time period starts from the date of pick-up from our store or delivery date for an online purchase. If a problem should arise during this one year time period we kindly ask you to bring in the jewellery item, along with the bill of sale, for our inspection. With our extensive knowledge and experience in the jewellery industry, Minichiello Jewellers reserves the right to determine whether the condition of the jewellery piece falls under our warranty guidelines.

If it is found that the issue falls under our warranty, we will gladly repair the item or replace any small stones at no charge. If the issue falls outside of what is considered normal wear and tear for jewellery or is outside of the one year time period, we will repair or replace at the fairest and reasonable price possible.

Please note, this warranty excludes the centre diamond(s) or centre gemstone(s) of an engagement ring or right-hand ring. While diamonds are considered to be the hardest known natural material, they can be susceptible to chipping or breakage when struck at just the right angle or position. In these unforeseen cases, Minichiello Jewellers recommends having your piece of jewellery insured and scheduled with your local insurance provider.

 

DIAMOND UPGRADE POLICY

Minichiello Jewellers is proud to offer our lifetime, diamond upgrade policy on loose diamond* and/or diamond stud earring* purchases in store or online through minichiellojewellers.com.  We will gladly issue you a credit for the original purchase amount of the loose diamond or pair of diamond stud earrings and you can use that toward your upgrade.  To help facilitate this exciting opportunity, we require the original bill of sale and an inspection of the diamond or diamond stud earrings being upgraded.

For more information on this diamond upgrade policy, don't hesitate to call us in store (604) 685-4439 or send us an email at [email protected]

*The diamond upgrade policy only applies to loose diamonds and diamond stud earrings that fall inside our strict diamond quality guidelines.  Any purchases that fall outside of our quality guidelines are not eligible for upgrade.

 

JEWELLERY CLEANING AND CARE

To help maintain the integrity and longevity of all of your jewellery purchases, please treat items as the valuable pieces of jewellery they are.  Please refrain from wearing your jewellery items while doing high impact activities and any other activities that will subject your pieces to excessive wear and tear.

All jewellery items purchased in store or online through minichiellojewellers.com include complimentary, life time cleaning and inspection.  We love maintaining the sparkle and brilliance of all our jewellery pieces, so don't hesitate to pop by!

 

HOW TO SIZE YOUR FINGER FROM HOME

If you are wanting to place an order from home but do not know your finger size, there are many online templates and tricks you can follow.  We like the string and ruler method because those are two things that most people already have in their home.  You can use the chart below as a guideline to come up with the right size.  And not to worry if your results are a little off, ring re-sizing is typically easy and quick to do!
