Warranty

Sobre El Jade

We want to thank and congratulate each of our clients that have purchased a beautiful piece of jewelry, pre-hispanic reproductions and/or sculptures in our stores or through our authorized dealers.  We certify that all our jade, is of the jadeite variety found in the mountains and rivers of Guatemala.  Its hardness ranges between 6.0 and 7.0 in the Moh’s scale. The authenticity of the jadeite used by us has been verified by either the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) or the Mining Department of Guatemala.

Our warranty covers manufacturing defects for 1 year in all our jewelry assembled in sterling silver with or without silver, rodium, or gold cover; 10kt, 14kt and 18kt gold, in the different varieties: yellow, white and rose; goldfilled and bronze.

From the date of purchase up to 1 year, Casa del Jade will cover all the repair and shipping cost of damages that have occurred unintentionally. The warranty will not cover any damages from misuse or lack of care of the piece.

 SILVER JEWELRY

 Casa del Jade certifies that all the silver used in our jewelry is sterling silver, also known as 925 silver.

 This type of silver is sensible to the pH of the customer, or environmental factors such as salinity and humidity, chemical components in moisturizer creams and alcohol in lotions.

Recommendations for taking care of your silver jewelry

 Don’t apply moisturizer cream or lotion directly on to your jewelry and clean your jewel after each use with a special clothe for silver to remove anything that might cause the silver to react and tarnish.

 Jewels are delicate and deserve special care; therefore we recommend keeping each piece in their original package to avoid any damages.

 WHAT DOES OUR WARRANTY COVER?

Necklaces, bracelets and earrings made out of assembled pieces in gold, silver and goldfilled. 

Every necklace and bracelet that our designers elaborate has a special jewelry string of the best quality in the interior of each piece to keep the shape. However, it is susceptible to losing its shape if the piece is not well taken care of.

Our warranty for these covers any manufacturing problems such as opening of crimps, broken or non functioning clasp, broken string and the loss of components and stones due to any of the problems mentioned before.

For assembled earrings our warranty covers the loss of components, broken or non functioning ear wires.

 Handmade and cast pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings in gold and silver.

 Our warranty covers the replacement of stones that have fallen out due to a loss in strength of the unions, any cracks in the metal.

Other products: Bracelets, Necklaces and Earrings made with leather, guatemalan fabric, plastic, wood, ribbons, laces, resins or other alternative materials or metals (pewter)

All of these alternative materials have a 6 months warranty.

The warranty covers any damage to the alternative materials, the loss or change of color of them and the loss of stones due to a problem with the alternative materials.

 INTERESTING FACT: CAN JADE BREAK?

The hardness of Jade allows us to have a surface of a gem that is resistant to scratches from normal objects, making Jade a special gem to work with. To be able to transform it into a beautiful gem we need laser technology, the pressure of water or industrial diamond. However, if the piece suffers a very hard fall or shock, it might fracture or break, this is because of the crystal structure of the stone. That is why we recommend to take care of it, as you would do with any precious stone.
