Site Content Pricegems makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and completeness of our online Catalog. Our purpose is to provide you with accurate and complete information so that you can make an informed buying decision. The Product Details provided are based on our manufacturing specification and are accurate within certain tolerances. As required by FTC Guidelines, and in accordance with standard industry practice, the specified diamond and color gem weight is deemed accurate within 0.05 carat of actual weight for individual stones or the total weight for aggregates. For settings featuring multiple diamonds and gems, we specify the minimum total carat weight. For the color and clarity of diamonds, we will specify either the average or the minimum grade. If the minimum grade is specified then all diamonds will meet or exceed this minimum standard. If the average grade is indicated then the average of the diamonds taken together will meet or exceed this grade. Pearl diameter is accurate within 0.25mm. Gold and platinum weights are approximate due to slight additions and losses resulting from sizing, polishing, and handworking of individual pieces, but generally are accurate to within 1 gram. All photos are enlarged to display finer detail in a manner similar to examination using a 10X jeweler's loupe. Differences in computer monitors and software may cause slight differences in the apparent size and color of any given item within our Catalog.
Free Trade and Ethical Sourcing Pricegems uses only diamonds obtained from suppliers that strictly adhere to the standards set forth by the Kimberley Process to ensure that every diamond we sell is conflict-free. Our sources of precious metals and precious and semi-precious stones are screened in accordance with ethical standards that promote free trade and human rights.

Other Terms Additional terms and conditions not explicitly described herein but accessible through the help section of this Site are incorporated herein by reference and carry the full force and effect of the other terms and conditions specified herein. Portions of these policies are referenced below, along with links to the full text:
Payment and Shipping For ready-made items, your credit card is not charged until your order actually ships. With custom orders and other hand-made items, orders requiring alteration (e.g. ring sizing, engraving), or orders requiring special handling, such as bronze statuary, payment is required at the time of order. The lead time between order placement and shipping varies by item. Items that are in stock and that do not require alteration normally ship within one (1) business day. Items requiring alteration, such as ring sizing or engraving, and orders involving custom work (hand-made jewelry) will require additional production time prior to shipment. Generally, when additional time is required this will be specified on the product page for that item and can vary from 3-9 business days or more depending on the project, the season, workload, and upon other factors. We will inform you concerning the progress of your order by email or by telephone, and you may inquire at any time by contacting us, or by logging into your account, assuming you have created an account when placing your order. Please consult with your sales representative for further details on custom orders and lead times, especially if you have a deadline. More
Custom Work Most of the fine jewelry featured on our Site is hand-made by master jewelers using the best quality materials and time-tested, centuries-old techniques. Custom orders enter production on the first or second business day following the order date. Custom jewelry, as opposed to ready-made, is created for you at the time of order and involves a considerable investment in time and materials. Consequently, custom orders cannot be canceled once production has begun and may be returned for tradeup or exchange only. Once in production, custom orders that are canceled prior to delivery are subject to a cancellation fee. The price quoted for a custom order is an estimate only, and under unusual circumstances an adjustment to the originally quoted price may be required. Customer-initiated changes to orders already in production may incur a surcharge. Production times for custom work are estimates, and additional time may be required. More
Exchanges and Returns Ready-made items may be returned for any reason within 15 days for trade-up, exchange, replacement, store credit, or refund. Some restrictions apply. Rest assured that due to our generous use of precious metals and gems, and our meticulous attention to quality and detail, returns are quite rare. More
Security Pricegems protects your confidential information by employing on our Site state-of-the-art 256-bit encryption (the highest level commercially available) issued by GeoTrust, which is one of the most widely used and trusted Certificate Authorities in the World. We also employ industry best practices to maintain the privacy and security of your data. More
