Van Cott Jewelers reserves the right to change or modify any of these Terms and Conditions or any policy or guideline of this Website in its sole discretion by posting such changes or modifications to this Website.

Product displayed on this Website is not always available for immediate shipping. While we make every effort to keep the Website current, product is constantly being sold and therefore available inventory is constantly changing. If you need a product shipped within forty-eight hours, we recommend that you contact the one of our stores directly and they should be able to tell you whether or not the product can be shipped in that time frame, or that you provide us with a cell phone number or other information that allows us to quickly contact you in case the item is no longer in stock. If a piece of jewelry is listed as being out of stock and you call us, we can usually tell you the date that it is expected to be back in stock.
We at Van Cott Jewelers pride ourselves on offering quality products at reasonable prices. We do not engage in price negotiation and all prices are final. Our prices are subject to change without notice because we operate in a market where prices can change rapidly. We also are not perfect and do occasionally make errors in entering data on our Website. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they occur. We reserve the right to correct any and all errors when they occur. When we notice an erroneous price prior to shipping a product, we will contact you and request your instructions as to whether you want the product at the correct price or wish to cancel the order. If the order has been shipped before we notice the erroneous price, you agree to either return the product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices.
All prices are in United States dollars and payment must be made in United States dollar. If you use a credit card, the conversion rate will be as set by bank that issues your credit card.
Every so often, you will not be able to find the precise combination of diamond and setting that you want on our Website. In such instances, you may make a specific request through this Website or you may call us at 888-VANCOTT and we will make every effort to assist you.
Loose diamonds are shipped with a diamond grading report and appraisal (also called a diamond certificate). A diamond certificate is written and signed by a diamond grading expert at one of two highly-respected diamond laboratories and they are very expensive to replace. Accordingly, we require that you return the diamond certificate if you return the diamond. If you fail to return the diamond certificate, you will be charged a replacement fee.
To keep our prices low, we do not allow comparison purchasing. Comparison purchasing is the act of buying several items with the intent of keeping the one you like best and returning the remainder. This causes undue restocking and inventory overhead and can be very costly.
We resize rings free of charge if requested to do so within 45 days of its original shipment. Resizing generally takes 10-14 business days, but there are times during the year – particularly prior to and after the holidays – when it may take longer. Use our return policy instructions for shipping the ring back to us if you need it resized.
Some of the information that we display on our Website concerning a product comes from the manufacturer, such as dimensions and sometimes the pictures. For products which are convex or rounded, these dimensions are usually measured prior to the rounding of the metal in the manufacturing process, and this may lead to slight discrepancies. In addition, for products where we state a weight, it is possible that the weight in any and all purchases will vary by as much as .05 carats from the stated weight. For those items which contain more than one diamond, we use the average grade and measurement for carat weight, color and clarity.
We use our best efforts to provide you with an accurate view of our products on our Website. However, in order to let you see the product, it is sometimes necessary to make the product appear larger or smaller than the actual size. In addition, the settings on your monitor can affect color, size and shape slightly.
Some of our diamonds are laser inscribed. We do not provide laser inscription services ourselves. We can provide you with contact information for diamond grading labs that provide this service.
Our diamonds are purchased from well known and respected suppliers. Each of these suppliers has agreed to the standards established by the Kimberley Process, which is an international system for assuring that diamonds come from sources that are conflict free.
