1. What does LeCaine Gems’ Warranty cover?
At LeCaine Gems, we offer a 1-year limited warranty from the date of purchase, which covers jewellery purchased from us. LeCaine Gems will repair or replace, abiding by the terms and conditions of this warranty policy, any jewellery purchased from our online store or physical retail store, during the duration established in the warranty, if the item is found to have manufacturing defects. Any chip, crack or damage to the main stone will be fully replaced at no cost.
2. What is not covered under the Warranty?
Our manufacturing warranty covers only jewellery with completed designs (ie. with gemstones set in place). Unfinished jewellery (ie. semi-mount, casings, and loose stones) are not covered by our warranty. The warranty does not cover damage to the item caused by accidental or incidental breakage, abuse or daily wear and tear. Please note that for gemstone replacement, the warranty only covers a one time center gemstone replacement claim. Subsequent repairs for damaged stones will be chargeable.
If the jewellery has been adjusted or altered in any way by a third party or external jeweller other than LeCaine Gems, the warranty is voided. This includes re-sizing, re-polishing and any other adjustments.
The warranty does not cover theft and loss, which does not fall under craftsmanship-related issues.

Warranty claims would have to be supported by proof of purchase or relevant documents (ie. Authenticity Certificate and Payment Receipt), subject to the final confirmation by LeCaine Gems, before the item is shipped over (if from overseas) or for local drop-in maintenance.
