We even offer a free appraisal with every diamond engagement ring purchased.
- Price Guarantee - Van Cott Jewelers is committed to providing world class products at the most affordable prices. We guarantee you won’t find a better price on any diamond we sell or we will refund the difference plus 10% of the difference. We must be able to verify the price through identical lab reports. Any differential must be claimed in 90 days of purchase.
Setting Guarantee - Your Van Cott diamond was expertly set in a carefully crafted setting by our professional goldsmiths. We will guarantee your center diamond will not be lost from its setting under normal wearing conditions. $5000 is the maximum coverage. On center stones that exceed $5000, we strongly recommend they be insured. Our associates can explain programs offered by Gem Shield and Jewelers Mutual.
- Value Guarantee - Should you want to trade your diamond solitaire ring, earrings or pendant for a larger, more valuable diamond, you will receive 100% of purchase price paid for the center diamond.

'Gotta Say Yes' Guarantee - Van Cott Jewelers has always given our customers a two week money back guarantee. We understand the timing of a proposal is a special moment and shouldn’t be rushed.
