Prices of goods, services, delivery and other charges displayed on Gold & Diamond Exchange website are current at the time of display. These prices are subject to change without notice. While we will always try our best to be as accurate as possible with our product descriptions and pricing, we are unable to guarantee that there are no errors, incomplete or outdated information. Photos of our items also serve as part of the description.
All prices displayed on our online store are in Australian dollars and include GST. Prices are correct at the time of listing, but are subject to change without notice. All items offered are individual one-off pieces that are priced on their condition, rarity, stone content, precious metal weight and age.
Estate, vintage and antique jewellery are all jewellery items that have been worn and owned previously. While we are very careful selecting jewellery in the best conditions, the condition of the items can vary, so we do our best to describe it as accurately as possible in the individual item listings. The condition of the items can also be discerned from the pictures provided on our website. If you require clarification about the condition of an item please do not hesitate to contact us before making a purchase.
All of our jewellery pieces have been professionally cleaned and checked. The majority of our pre-loved items are also sent to our workshops to be professionally polished before they are displayed for sale. We take pride in our customer service and value all our customers. If you have any issues at any time, please do not hesitate to discuss the matter with us. We do not cover wear and tear of jewellery; however, any manufacturing issues are always covered by us.
Jewellery can be delicate and we encourage our customers to take extra care when wearing it daily to ensure you keep your favourite pieces in the best condition. Easy things you can do every day to prevent damage include taking your jewellery off while cleaning, sleeping, showering and during exercise. Avoid wearing it whenever there is a chance it can be caught on clothing or anything that can disturb the setting, clasps, loosen stones etc. Fine pieces tend to wear quicker and are more prone to breakage than a thicker solidly built piece. It is your responsibility to determine whether the design of an item suits your lifestyle before you make a purchase.
We reserve the right not to provide goods or services, terminate accounts, remove or edit content or cancel orders (or part thereof) at our sole discretion at any time.
