lifetime diamond upgrade
At Friendly Diamonds, we offer a LIFETIME upgrade policy for all certified lab grown diamonds.
- The diamond to be exchanged must be a loose diamond or a center diamond of a 'create your own'
- The cost of the new diamond must be at least 30% greater than the current market value of the original diamond at the time of the exchange.
- Friendly Diamond's quality control team will determine the value with current market prices.
- The new diamond may or may not fit the original jewelry setting (ring, earring, pendant or any custom jewelry setting). If the new diamond fits the original setting, the customer can choose to reuse it by paying a setting fee of $100. If the new diamond does not fit the original setting, the customer may purchase a new setting. In this case, the original setting cannot be returned if the exchange is taking place outside the 30 day return period.
- Shipping costs for the items to Friendly Diamonds will be the customer's responsibility. The new item will come with our free shipping terms.
- The new items will be shipped once the exchanged item is returned and received at our office. Our quality control team will assess all exchanged items.
- Please refer to the instructions below for more information on how to send in your item for exchange.
- Please refer to the information below on shipping terms of the new item.
Valuation of diamond at the time of exchange
- The value of the diamond to be exchanged will be determined at its current market value at the time of exchange.
- The cost difference between the two diamonds will be calculated using the new diamond's market value and the original diamond’s current market value at the time of exchange.
Payments of additional amounts
- Any cost difference between the original diamond and the new diamond must be paid in full before Friendly Diamonds ships the new items.
- The customer may choose a different payment method for the order as required.
