Terms, Shipping & Returns

Sales Terms:

All items on this website are subject to prior sale. We make every attempt to list only items that are in stock and available for purchase although occasionally, an item may be displayed that is unavailable. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the rare event of clerical errors on our website including, but not limited to incorrect pricing or descriptive wording, Shaftel Diamond Co. reserves the right to cancel an order and refund the customer’s money in full.

Custom & Special Orders:

“Special Order” items are pieces that must be custom manufactured, require specific input by the customer, or are significantly modified at the customer’s request. At Shaftel Diamond Co., we take pride in the quality and attention to detail in our work. Depending on the intricacy of your custom design, manufacturing times may take several weeks to complete. Please see our “custom design” page to learn more about our process and to contact one of our design specialists.

Shaftel Diamond Co. happily offers free overnight shipping on all orders over $1,000 and free ground shipping (usually second day) on all orders under $1,000. All shipments are fully insured and we proudly use FedEx for most deliveries. Please note that we do not ship internationally or to P.O. boxes. Please allow up to 2 business days after your order is placed for your items to be shipped. We make every attempt to ship in-stock items the day after the order is placed.
