What would be the ideal warranty / diamond warranty / etc with all that is diamond related? Part of paying for the name brand jewelry store is their ability to have a good warranty and the fact that it is a reputable brand name. Almost every company has a lifetime warranty for cleaning, repair and replacement (except Harry Winston, but I may be wrong).
Kay has lifetime diamond warranty that replaces the stone for chips, breaks if lost from the setting. Installation defects come with cleaning. As long as you have it inspected every six months, your ring is covered.
Helzberg also has the same lifetime warranty as Kay’s
Harry Winston only guarantees production failure for 24 months
What are your guys’ input on the guarantees after the purchase? Does that mean a lot, nothing at all? Better to buy your own jewelry? How much does the corporate warranty affect your decision?
