Additional policies and FAQs
ECO and SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

If given the choice, we would all choose to make the world a safer, fairer place to live, and sourcing jewelry materials responsibly is one place we can help. Tracking materials and requesting recycled options from manufacturing and mining sources sends a consumer message that is creating a more transparent trail and conscientious options for gemstones and precious metals.

All diamonds purchased from Laura Preshong are trusted to be from trackable ethical sources, no Conflict Diamonds or stones from Zimbabwe are ever knowingly purchased. All diamonds used in our designs are covered by The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme and are from conflict free sourses. Our diamonds come from Australia, Russia, South Africa, India and some Canadian and are not derived from the small amount of conflict diamonds still entering the market.

~Read my blog post The Conflict with "Conflict Free" Canadian Diamonds. http://laura-preshong.squarespace.com/blog/the-conflict-with-conflict-free-canadian-diamonds.html

We also provide a Green jewelry certificate for all of our pieces, certifying that all metals are 100% recycled, and/or processed in an environmentally responsible way, paired with 'conflict free' diamonds and fair trade gems.

At Laura Preshong we invest our time and knowledge to provide you the consumer with low impact production, ethical diamonds, recycled metals and fair trade gems.

FAQ

Q. What is considered a Special or Custom Order?
A. Featured jewelry that is out of stock may be ordered and is considered a Special Order. Featured jewelry designs altered for specific client requests are considered Custom Orders.

Q. How will I know my order has been shipped?

Q. When will my order be delivered?
A. Purchases are usually shipped within 1 days of receipt, but we say 2 to cover unforseen circumstances. Many times, they actually are shipped on the same day.

You will be informed of any unforeseen delays at the time of your purchase.

Q. Ring Sizing
A.Laura Preshong aims to take the trick out of the ring sizing process. Many factors including air travel, spicy foods, alcohol and hot weather and time of day can dramatically influence finger size. Laura Preshong guarantees that rings will be the size ordered; we size using a steel ring stick with the size being determined at the center point of the ring band. When ordering a wide band ring, allow a half size for band width. Use this link to print a paper ring sizer, or visit a local jewelry store for sizing.

All rings are sold to the client at their requested size. There is often a reasonable charge to adjust the size of a ring after initial sizing, and will vary depending on material, please call for a quote.

Q. What is your repair policy?
A. Laura Preshong stands firmly behind the quality of all of the items we sell. If an item is received damaged or is in need of repair due to a manufacturing error, we will repair it at no charge.
