What is your return policy?
If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you can return it to us for any reason within 14 days of delivery. Returns outside this window will not be accepted. Please be advised that any international shipping fees, customs duties and taxes will not be refunded.
Items must be returned in the condition they were received. Items that have been sized or altered in any way from their original condition are final sale and not eligible for return. If your purchase was accompanied by an original box, original paperwork or other original collateral material, please be sure to include them as well. We will not be able to issue a refund without all the collateral material or if anything has been modified from its original condition.
How do I care for my jewelry?
Caring for your jewelry will keep it looking great and will ensure that it will last for generations to come. Everyday wear and tear can dull the surface of most precious metals. Routine hand washing with soap and water can coat a gemstone making it appear cloudy or milky. That is why CIRCA offers a free annual professional cleaning service. Schedule a visit at any of our 14 locations or call us at (646) 971-0018 to request a free and fully insured shipping kit.
For basic cleaning at home, we recommend gently cleaning your jewelry with a soft polishing cloth, or with gentle soap and water.
You should avoid using any chemicals or harsh cleaning products, as this could permanently damage the precious metal and gemstones.
