Worried about traveling with your actual diamond engagement ring for security purposes? Have us make you a replica ring and worry-no-more! Here at Zack & Elle, we pay close attention to your needs and concerns. Over the years, some of our clients requested copies of their rings just in case they travel or for any other personal reasons.
When we build you a magnificent diamond engagement ring, we have the ability to make you an exact replica for an added price. The replica will be made in your choice of metal. We will set the highest quality cubic zirconia center stone, matching your actual diamond engagement ring in sparkle as much as possible (we get pretty close)! The side-stones can be either cubic zirconia or actual diamonds if you choose so. Prices are quoted on an individual case-by-case basis due to design variations. During our phone or in-person consultations, we can discuss this service for your ring.
Please note, some diamond rings cannot be replicated. For example, a three stone diamond engagement ring with trapezoid side diamonds will be hard to replicate because trapezoid cubic zirconia do not have the sparkle we strive for.
You will receive the following documents with your ring:
- Official Zack & Elle® invoice
- Original GIA grading report for center diamonds, or Warranty card for moissanites
- Signed appraisal
- Zack & Elle® Limited Lifetime manufacturing warranty card
- Ring Care Guide
- Jeweler’s Mutual Insurance information pamphlet
- Velvet Zack & Elle® ring box
Zack & Elle® highly recommends working with Jeweler’s Mutual to have your piece insured. For most pieces, they can provide same day insurance after the quote is prepared based on the appraisal given to you. Contact Jeweler’s Mutual directly for additional insurance related questions.
We stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of our jewelry. Zack & Elle® offers a free lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects on all Zack & Elle® fine jewelry. If you experience damage to your purchase due to manufacturing, we recommend you Contact Us so we may evaluate your piece. A $50 deposit will be taken before the shipment of your item to Zack & Elle® for evaluation, which covers the cost of shipping the item and an evaluation by our expert jewelers to determine if the damage is warrantied. This fee is refunded in full for all warrantied repairs. We also offer complimentary shipping back to the customer for all warrantied repairs. Repairs that are not covered under the lifetime warranty will have a price quoted to the customer for approval before work is performed. If approved, the deposit will be applied to this repair. If the customer chooses not to perform the repair, the deposit will be applied to cover the shipping charge back to the customer after evaluation.
If a warranty issue is found, Zack & Elle® will repair the warrantied damage or replace the item without charge.
Repair or service performed by a jeweler other than Zack & Elle® will void the warranty. All fine jewelry can be affected by normal wear, activities, or trauma. This is especially true for rings, since hands are actively used and subject to daily pressure. Our manufacturing warranty excludes coverage for wear and tear, loss of gemstones, product loss, or theft. Coverage also excludes damage or loss caused by a failure to obtain the repairs required to preserve the integrity of the jewelry.
Some examples of common jewelry issues that would not be considered manufacturing defects include:
- The discoloration of precious metals caused by chemicals, make-up, immersion in pools and hot tubs, or bathing.
- Precious metals, and especially prongs, wear down over time and may require restoration work as part of normal wear.
- Prongs catching, wearing out, or bending over time due to everyday wear or normal damage, allowing a gemstone to fall out.
- The loss of a gemstone caused by damage from everyday wear or from other damage.
