Jewelry Returns... Jewelry must be returned in its Original NEW Condition. Any signs including but not limited to visual signs of wear damage including and not limited to scuffing, scratching, dulling of the finish or tarnishing makes the item unsalable and must have all original tags on it. Please be sure to read the product description carefully before placing your order to ensure that the item will meet your needs.
All Returns that DO NOT meet our "Original NEW Condition" criteria will not be credited and will be returned to the customer. We are not responsible for lost shipments of any items returned because they do not meeting our return criterie.
Damages and Defects... Orders received damaged or incorrect will be exchanged for the same item only. Please email report to Customer Care via email within 5 days of delivery. Claims for defective items must be made within 30 days upon receipt of goods. Normal wear and accidental damage is not considered a defect. Sterling Silver is a soft metal. This means silver rings commonly become bent or misshapen. Even day-to-day wear can do this, since the heat of the hand is sufficient to soften the silver further. This is not considered a defect in quality. Our quality control is very strict. Items are not shipped tarnished unless the item description states that the item has an antique or patina finish. Items that tarnish during wear are not considered damaged or defective.
Causes of Tarnishing... If a person has a natural high acidity level in his/her skin, it is possible for his/her finger to "turn green" from silver or gold jewelry, or for silver jewelry to blacken especially when the weather is hot and humid. The green is actually caused by oxidation, and all silver will oxidize (it's also what gives silver a tarnished look). There are some costume jewelry items that cause the same effect. Most of them contain nickel. It's not poisonous in small quantities but it can provoke a reaction in people allergic to nickel. This "green finger effect" and the tarnishing of silver may also be an allergic reaction to alloy elements in sterling silver or gold. In some cases, the alloys, used to make jewelry more durable, may react with your body chemistry, chemicals in the air and household chemicals such as soap, salt and sun tan lotion causing a harmless green or black discoloration on the skin, which can be easily removed with soap and water, silver cleaner or with a polish cloth. For this reason, most retail silver jewelry and white gold jewelry is plated with rhodium, which serves as a defensive layer and prevents this reaction from happening to anyone with allergy.
Lost Packages... All UPS tracking numbers are emailed automatically immediately upon shipping. Claims of lost packages or non receipt of package must be made within 2-3 weeks from date of shipping. All packages are shipped Insured and will be immediately replaced by IJC upon notification. IJC is not liable and cannot issue a refund for stolen package claims.
