Lifetime Jewelry Care Plan

At Helzberg Diamonds, we understand that a jewelry purchase is an investment in yourself or in someone special. Our Lifetime Care Plan is just one more way we commit to helping our customers feel confident in their purchases by covering repairs and inspections.

HOW TO SIGN-UP FOR THE LIFETIME JEWELRY CARE PLAN

Join our Lifetime Care Plan at your nearest store, or online when you make a purchase. If you have any questions, please be sure to contact the Helzberg Diamonds store at which you purchased this Lifetime Care Plan.

 

DETAILS

When a Lifetime Care Plan is purchased, you will be given an inspection card. The inspection card will need to be presented every six months along with the piece covered for cleaning and inspection.  If any covered repair work needs to be done, the updated inspection card will be required. 

KEEP YOUR PLAN ACTIVE

To maintain your Lifetime Care Plan, you must have your jewelry inspected by a Helzberg Diamonds associate during the six months following the date of purchase and every six months thereafter. Inspections must be documented by a Helzberg Diamonds associate on your inspection card. If you do not, your coverage under this Lifetime Care Plan will become invalid.

Just bring your jewelry to your nearest Helzberg Diamonds store along with your Lifetime Care Plan inspection card. Your card will be updated and used to verify you have maintained the needed cleaning and inspections to keep the care plan active. All check-ups and Covered Repairs and Services are a part of the purchase price of this plan. When we have completed the inspection and any needed repairs, all you have to do is pick up the jewelry at the same store where you dropped it off. 

WHAT REPAIRS AND SERVICES ARE COVERED 

This Lifetime Care Plan covers all inspections, cleaning and Covered Repairs and Services to the jewelry covered by this Plan. Covered Repairs and Services include the parts and labor necessary to fix problems which occur during normal usage of the jewelry, consistent with the conditions for which it was designed, and all costs covered under the original manufacturer’s warranty (except as limited by the Addenda in this Limited Care Plan and applicable state law). Depending on the type of jewelry for which the Plan coverage is purchased, it would include shortening of diamond bracelets, resizing or reshanking of rings, the replacement of lost or damaged diamonds and gemstones, restringing of pearls, clasp replacement, repair of broken chains, repair of worn or broken prongs, repair of broken earring posts or similar repairs. 

What is not covered:

Jewelry that is not brought in for its regular six-month check-up or that has been damaged as a result of excessive or abusive treatment

  • Jewelry that has been repaired by a store other than Helzberg Diamonds
  • Loss or theft of the jewelry
  • Damage resulting to the jewelry from loss, theft or Act of God, or any consequential damages or loss of use resulting from the broken or damaged jewelry, or from any delay in our repairing the jewelry.

COVERED PERIOD

This Lifetime Care Plan gives you coverage for the lifetime of the jewelry from the date of purchase. This coverage applies only to the jewelry listed on this plan and is not transferable to other jewelry items purchased.

TRANSFERABLE

This Lifetime Care Plan applies to the original customer, the original gift recipient of the jewelry and subsequent gift recipients of the jewelry, so long as he or she is in possession of both the jewelry and the Lifetime Care Plan inspection card.

LIMIT OF LIABILITY

For any single claim, the limit of liability under this Plan is the least of the cost (1) authorized repairs, (2) replacement with a product of like kind and quality, (3) reimbursement for authorized repairs or replacement or (4) the purchase price you paid for the product, including appropriate sales tax. The total liability under this Plan is the purchase price you paid for the product, including appropriate sales tax. In the event that the total of all authorized repairs exceeds the purchase price paid for the product, including appropriate sales tax, we replace the product, or we reimburse you for replacement of the product or the purchase price you paid for the product, we shall have satisfied all of our obligations under this Plan.

CANCELLATION

Illinois, Arizona, Nevada and California Addendum

For Illinois, Arizona, California and Nevada customers only, this Lifetime Care Plan may be cancelled at any time during its term, subject to the following conditions: If this Lifetime Care Plan is cancelled within the first sixty (60) days of the coverage period and so long as you return the Lifetime Care Plan Kit with your receipt, Helzberg Diamonds will refund the entire purchase price (100%). If this Plan is cancelled at any time thereafter and so long as you return the Lifetime Care Plan Kit with your receipt, Helzberg Diamonds will refund to you a pro-rata portion of the purchase price based on the following calculation. A time period of 7 years will be used to calculate a pro-rata refund. To calculate the month in which coverage began under this Lifetime Care Plan, it will be considered a month only if this Lifetime Care Plan was purchased before the 15th of such month. The month in which this plan was cancelled will be considered a covered month only if it is cancelled after the 15th of such month. Pro-rata refunds will be given based on the number of months remaining in the extended warranty period, divided by 84, multiplied by the original selling price. For example, a $179.99 plan purchased on January 7, 2008, and returned on July 7, 2008, would have 78 months remaining out of 84, so the calculation would be 78/84 x $179.99, to arrive at a refund amount of $167.13.
