Frequently Asked Questions

Do you guarantee your diamonds?
We guarantee the side stones for two years and after that time period, we will charge you at our cost.

What is your refund policy on custom-designed pieces?
Custom-designed jewelry is unique and made especially for you, therefore we are unable to refund custom orders.

We show you wax design before going to the next phase. From beginning to end you’ll be very much involved with the process to feel confident your jewelry piece will be special. If for any reason you still do not like the piece, we can do a store credit or exchange.

Can you make custom designs?
Absolutely.  CA Jewelers has an in-house design and manufacturing department specific, which can make any design you come up with.  Please contact our design team for a consultation.

Can I see a model of my custom designed jewelry, before you make it?
We will provide you with a hand-carved wax prototype of your custom designed piece.  From this process, you will get an approximate idea as to what your jewelry will look like.   At this time you will also have an opportunity to make changes to your design.

How long does it take to custom design a piece?
The time table for custom designed jewelry varies depending on the complexity of the design.  Unlike other stores, CA Jewelers has an in-house design and manufacturing department.  This enables us to be more efficient while having complete control of the entire process.  Please contact our design team with your custom design for a specific time line.
