At apt. E, we believe luxury does not need to affect the environment and diamonds should not be washed in blood. That is why we offer environmentally-friendly diamond fine jewelry.

Payment
Payment for your item can be made through PayPal, Credit or Debit Cards, and Etsy Gift Cards within 24 hours of your purchase. For payment plans, please select Other as the payment method. All Minnesota residents will be charged 7.50% sales tax. Once placed, orders cancelled, exchanged, or changed will be subject to our refund/cancellation/exchange/change policy.

Payment Plans:
We understand that sometimes, a payment plan would work better for our customers. We offer payment plans if that will work better for you. We can do 3 payments or 5 payments for all items over $200. We will do our best to make all three or five payments equal; however, please understand that sometimes, the first payment will be higher due to the price of the item you wish to purchase not dividing equally by three or five. The first invoice will be sent upon receipt of your order. All remaining subsequent invoices will be sent to you on the same date of the upcoming months until the item is paid in full. Shipping charges (when shipping is not free due to your location) will be submitted together with the first payment.

For example, a $349.99 item paid using a 3-payment plan would have the following payment amounts:
1st payment = $119.99
2nd payment = $115.00
3rd payment = $115.00

Under the payment plans, if you decide that instead of sending only a regular payment you want to pay it off, all you need to do is let us know and we will send you an invoice equal to the balance due. If you decide to cancel the transaction after already submitting one payment, there will be a 25% of the purchase value retained as cancellation fee.

If you decide to purchase using a payment plan, all you need to do is select Other as the payment method when you go through Checkout. We will start working on your item once the order is paid in full.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
Shipping
Shipping - All domestic shipping will be via USPS and most products will ship in approx. 15-20 business days from date of purchase. That may vary depending on the current workload we are experiencing. If you are in a hurry to get an item please let me know and I will do everything I can to speed up the process.

INTERNATIONAL PACKAGES
We're happy to offer international shipping on all products. International shipping will ONLY be made through FEDEX, which offers accurate tracking and secure shipping. Once shipped, packages will make it to their destinations quickly, but occasionally packages get stuck in customs and take a little longer. For this reason we ask you to please allow up to 4-6 weeks (especially around the holidays) for international delivery. If your package hasn't arrived in that amount of time, please let us know.

YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CUSTOMS FEES, TARIFFS, DUTIES, ETC. THAT YOUR PURCHASE MIGHT INCUR AT YOUR COUNTRY'S BORDER.
I do not collect these fees or have any way to calculate what these fees might be for you. Please refer to your local customs agency for more information. Refunds will generally not be granted if you refuse a package due to customs fees, because the package may not be returned to me.

LOST PACKAGES
All US and International orders ship with tracking numbers so lost packages are rare. A package will be considered lost if you have not received it within 3 weeks (for packages to the US) or 6 weeks (for international packages). I will replace lost packages at no charge after that amount of time has passed.

When Shipping to the Gift Recipient - We include a packing slip in our shipments which contains the price and shipping paid. If you are sending your order as a gift, please let us know and be sure to let the recipient know they are to be receiving a package, or please request a gift note to be included with the order. Due to privacy concerns, we do not give out information about who ordered the item if the recipient contacts us.

Undeliverable Packages - If a package is returned to our shop for any reason, there will be a $20 charge to send the package again (for US packages) and $110 for international packages. This fee will be billed to the customer before the order is resent. Also, if an incorrect address is included on the order, there will be a $20 charge to cover the initial shipping cost in addition to the cost of reshipping the item. We do not make any money on this fee.

International Shipments - Any duty charged from the shipping agent is the responsibility of the customer. This charge does not originate from apt. E, but from the country of the recipient.
Refunds and Exchanges
- All items can be returned for any reason within 14 days of delivery. Buyer must pay return shipping. Delivery confirmation must be included and sent to us by message.
- 25% restocking fee + shipping charges will be retained for ALL returns. Sorry, NO EXCEPTIONS.
- 25% fee for ALL cancellations/changes made after payment was posted. Sorry, NO EXCEPTIONS.
- The item must be unworn and in the same original packaging. Altered rings in any way cannot be returned and a refund will not be issued. Sorry, NO EXCEPTIONS.
- All sales are final and an order cannot be cancelled or exchanged for another item once payment is posted due to the custom nature of our products. A 25% cancellation/exchange fee would be charged in such cases.


The policy above applies to all cancellations/exchanges/order changes submitted after an order was placed and paid partially or in full.

30-Day Stone Replacement Policy:

If any of the stones in your piece of jewelry are falling within 30 days of delivery, we will replace your faulty ring with a brand new one only once. All you would need to do is send us a photo of the faulty ring and mail it back to us. You can mail it at:
apt. E
PO BOX 2561
Maple Grove, MN 55311

We will get started on the new ring as soon as we hear from you. This policy applies to any size purchased. A shipping notification with a tracking number will be sent to you as soon as the replacement ring is shipped to you.

Buyer must pay return shipping. Delivery confirmation must be included and sent to us by message.

Thank you for your understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
Important Note: If you plan on purchasing this ring for a loved one, please let us know and we will make sure the packing slip does not include the price and our thank you note is addressed to her. If you want to send us the special message that you would like to include on the card, please do so. We love being part of love stories and important life moments of our buyers and we enjoy personalizing your gift free of charge.

Frequently Asked Questions

I placed an order and learned that the size I ordered is wrong. Can I change the size of the order?

We start working on each order as soon as it is received. For this reason, changes to the size of the ring once the order was placed and payment was posted are subject to a 25% fee + shipping charges, if item already shipped. Please verify the size of the ring with a local jeweler prior to placing an order.

Can I exchange the ring for another one once the order is placed?

Exchanges can be made free of charge before payment is posted. Because all our jewelry is custom made,exchanges after payment is posted are subject to a 25% fee + difference in price + shipping charges, if item already shipped.

My size is not available in the listing. Can I order the ring in another size?

Answer: The sizes available for purchase are the ones we recommend due to the size of the stone. These sizes are covered under the Refund Policy above. Our rings in sizes other than the ones listed are non-refundable.

Will this stone test as a natural diamond?

Being a simulated diamond, this stone will not test as a real, mined diamond. If you love this setting and/or have your heart set on a stone of this size, this wallet-friendly and beautiful piece of jewelry will allow you to have the ring you adore without having to wait. You can always upgrade with a diamond - cultured or mined - when the time is right for you. Lab created stones that test as diamonds are the moissanites, which cost almost three times the price of this ring, whereas mined diamonds with these characteristics are thousands of dollars more expensive.

How do lab-created diamonds and natural diamonds compare?

Both have the same physical, chemical and optical properties and emerge as rough diamonds. Both have comparable hardness, specific gravity, refractive index and dispersion factor; are polished using the same equipment and techniques; and have comparable brilliance, sparkle, fire and scintillation.
