What is Whiteflash’s warranty policy?
Whiteflash offers a one year service policy on all of their products. This means that they will repair your item regardless of the reason – wear and tear or a manufacturing fault. The year period starts from the shipping date.
This is a generous offer as a lot of other jewellers warranties don’t cover wear and tear, however it’s only for a year and you’ll have your jewellery for a lot longer than that.
Apparently according to Whiteflash most manufacturing defects should show themselves by the first year so being covered for longer than this isn’t really necessary.
You have to pay for postage and insurance to get the item back to Whiteflash, but they’ll cover the postage and insurance to get the jewelry back to you.
If you have any issues with the jewelry contact their customer service team, and they’ll request you to send the piece back for inspection.
Once it’s back at Whiteflash, they’ll let you know if there’s any additional charges, in case the type of work you need done isn’t a wear and tear issue or a manufacturing defect. They’ll advise you of this before doing any work.

How does the Whiteflash warranty compare to competitors?
The best way to know if the warranty offered by a jewelry retailer is good or bad, is to compare it to other jewelers.
Many jewelry stores offer lifetime warranties, but most of them only cover manufacturer defects. The Whiteflash policy is only for a year, but it covers for wear and tear issues, which is a lot more generous than more than a lot of the jewellers.
