How to Prepare a Return or Exchange
To return a diamond or jewelry item to Jewels by Alex, follow the below process:
Your Return Authorization Code. Individual items of $500 or less, returned for refund can be set up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be given a Return Authorization Code. For all returns, write this code on the return sticker found at the bottom of your original invoice. Place the sticker on the outside of the box you are returning.
Package Your Return. We recommend you use the original shipping box, including all original packaging and collateral material. If your item was delivered with a diamond certificate and that certificate is not returned, you will be liable for the $250 replacement cost. For security reasons, do not write Jewels by Alex anywhere on the outside of the box.
Insure Your Package. On your invoice, if the price of the item you’re returning is listed as:
$500 or Less: Within the U.S. you can ship your package via any carrier. Email us to request a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) and if you’d like, we will print & send to you a prepaid FedEx Ground® label for your order on qualified items. This fee will be deducted from your refund.
Over $500: We recommend you ship your package via US Postal Service insured for the total value of the contents. If you wish, you may request a return receipt at a nominal fee that alerts you once Jewels by Alex has received your shipment. On shipments of $1000 or more, we recommend using US Postal Service Registered Mail™ for optimal tracking capability. (FedEx® will not insure merchandise over $500 and UPS® will not insure merchandise over $1000).
