What’s not covered by the Brilliant Earth warranty

Jewelry is subjected to a lot of wear and tear, especially engagement rings, which are on your hands every day and can get knocked or caught on things.

The following examples are the types of things that aren’t covered by the Brilliant Earth warranty:

  • General wear and tear
  • Loss of gemstones caused by damaged prongs, or everyday wear or damage. If you read our Brilliant Earth review, you’ll see that this is something that people often complain about, even years after purchase.
  • Loss of the item
  • Theft of the item
  • Discolouration of the precious metals – this can happen due to exposure to chemicals e.g. makeup, cleaning chemicals, within hot tubs, etc.
  • Prongs are often caught on things and can be loosened, bent or worn out
  • Estate and vintage jewelry isn’t covered as this wasn’t made by Brilliant Earth.
  • If you don’t maintain an item of jewelry to an acceptable level, resulting in it losing its integrity, your jewelry may  not be covered
  • Conversely, if you get the item repaired or serviced by another jeweler that’s not Brilliant Earth, the warranty will be voided

How you go about claiming for the Brilliant Earth warranty

If you think you have a warranty claim, please contact Brilliant Earth’s customer service team.  

They will ask that you send the item in so that they can assess the piece. In order to do this, there is a $50 deposit, which will cover the shipping fee and the cost of the evaluation by the jeweler.

If the item is found to be eligible for the warranty the $50 deposit will be refunded. You’ll also receive free shipping to get the item back to you.

If the item is found to not be eligible for warranty, then the cost of the repair will be quoted before any work goes ahead and the deposit amount will count towards the cost of the repair. If you decide not to go ahead with it the deposit amount will be used to cover the shipping back to you.
