Steven Kretchmer Design, Inc. stands behind everything it sells and warrants that all jewelry items will be free from manufacturing defects at the time of delivery. In the event that there is ever a problem with a piece of jewelry it can be mailed back to our office for inspection through an Authorized Retailer. If the problem is deemed to be from a manufacturing defect, Steven Kretchmer will repair or replace the jewelry item at no charge excluding shipping. This warranty covers each item of fine jewelry for defects in manufacturing only and expressly excludes coverage from normal/excessive wear-and-tear, physical/accidental abuse, negligence, loss of precious stones, theft, fire, contact with any foreign substance, contact with sharp or rough objects, improper cleaning or alterations. Repairs, warranty service or any work performed by someone other than Steven Kretchmer Design, Inc. will void this warranty. Steven Kretchmer DOES NOT recommend any bands that are not a Steven Kretchmer product to be worn against our rings unless they are lasered together at our studios, as wearing away metal could compromise the security of our products. Failure to do so will void our warranty. As with any fine piece of jewelry, we recommend purchasing insurance to protect your investment.
