If a pricing error were to occur there was no attempt to unlawfully harm any customer. If an error is made we will try to correct it as quickly as possible. According to common law advertising when an order is requested online it is not a binding agreement according to the court system. It is never our intent to advertise with incorrect pricing, unfortunately mistakes can and do happen.
Until an order is shipped a contract has not been entered into. If a pricing error occurred and Helzberg Diamonds did not correct the error prior to the order shipping then the Helzberg Diamonds Online Store would honor any pricing error.
