Turquoise and Silver Jewelry Policies


Our Quality Guarantee

Turquoise Jewelry 100% GauranteeWe can provide a Certificate of Authenticity with each piece of jewelry that you purchase from us if this is desired... please note this in the comments field of the checkout and is available for a fee of $20.00 which will be added to your bill. Your purchase is 100 % Satisfaction Guaranteed. The vast majority of our customers love our jewelry and rarely does anyone ever return what they have bought. When this happens it is usually due to size rather as opposed to quality. We try our best to capture the essence of each piece in our pictures; however, you will find the quality and beauty so much better in person. We do not warrantee jewelry that is not made by the Hartmans. You must contact the artist. We do not guarantee inlay jewelry for daily wear. Inlay jewelry is fragile and cannot be worn in water, everyday, or in harsh conditions. All jewelry should be taken care of as PRECIOUS ART, not as clothing. The better you take care of your jewelry, the longer it will last you. We do warranty our bezel set, prong set and inlay jewelry made by the Hartmans for faulty craftsmanship up to 3 months after the purchase. We will examine each piece with magnifiers. If it is our fault it is free, if we see gauges, scrapes, dings, or obvious negligence on your part, we have to charge for the repair.

Return and Exchanges

In that rare instance that someone needs to return something we would prefer to work with you on an exchange or in-store credit. By using the exchange program or an in-store credit you can avoid a re-stocking fee. If you exchange a purchase or trade the item for in-store credit will will pay the credit card fees for your purchase and the return of your money to your account, this amounts to 5% of the sale.

If this does not work for you, we ask that you return the item within 10 days of receipt and in original condition. WE REQUIRE YOU TO CONTACT VIA PHONE (970-375-2401 10am -4:00pm GMT) or EMAIL BEFORE RETURNING AN ITEM. We also REQUIRE that you provide a good reason as to why you are returning the item. If you provide a proper reason for your return within the 10 days after reciept of purchase, you will receive a 100 % refund of the price of the item NOT the shipping, minus a 5% re-stocking fee to cover our charges incurred by the credit card companies. Items returned and received after day 10 will incur a 15% restock fee. This is due to the fees we are charged as merchants by credit card processing companies and loss of possible sales. For transactions that are not returned to us after 15 days, there is no refund. After this time period there are no returns. If we find that you have worn/used the jewelry before returning the jewelry we will deduct 25% (for our costs for repair/refinishing of the jewelry) of the cost of the jewelry plus the shipping and deduct it from the return. We inspect all returns with a 20X magnifier on return.

You can arrange an exchange or in-store credit if you would like to return you purchase and not incure the 5% re-stocking fee.

Yes, we do layaways. We like to have 1/3 down payment at the time of purchase and paid in three months.

Once you have engaged in a lay-a-way, you are in a contract with us to purchase the exact item that you have put on lay-a-way. This means we are taking it out of the view of other potential buyers and will not have a chance to sell it. For this reason WE DO NOT GIVE REFUNDS ON UNFINISHED LAY-AWAYS. You are also commited to the exact item that you put on lay-a-way, we will not trade merchandise during the lay-a-way, unless you are will to pay a $20.00 service charge. When making payments you may call in your layaway order or email us that you are sending in payment and we will remove this item so that it does not sell in the meantime. You may also click the PayPal option and it will automatically remove the item and put in the comment field that you will be calling in payment or mailing in payment. Any questions, just email!
