Return Policies for Diamonds

Single Diamond Purchase:
All diamonds purchased from Good Old Gold that are covered by our "Lifetime Guarantee" have either a 10, 15 or 30-day return policy period and shipping is included in the purchase price. If you decide that you would like to return the diamond within the return period specified for your particular diamond, you will receive the full purchase price paid for the diamond less the original shipping fee. Please note that return postage for items being sent back to us is the customer's responsibility.

All refunds will be issued by company check or refunded back to a credit card depending on what your original payment type was. The return period will begin after you take delivery (assuming you take immediate delivery) or after the diamond is paid for. If for some reason, you require us to hold the diamond at our location, we will do so but the return period begins 24 hours after payment is made. Please allow up to 10 days for us to process your refund.

Note on settings: There are no refunds or returns on settings and wedding bands.
