During its lifetime, almost all jewelry will need some sort of service. Zales offers a variety of services and programs designed to protect your jewelry investment. These include our Lifetime Diamond Commitment, available on any purchase of covered diamond jewelry, and our in-store services. These services may not be available at all stores and prices and service time may vary. Check your local Zales store for details.

Zales Lifetime Diamond Commitment

Since Zales is The Diamond Store, our commitment to our guests is second to none. Zales wants to ensure that you'll enjoy the full beauty and brilliance of your diamond for a lifetime. With your diamond purchase of $200 or more, Zales presents its Lifetime Diamond Commitment.

Your Lifetime Diamond Commitment includes:

Diamond Breakage Coverage

If your diamond becomes chipped or broken or is lost from its original setting during normal use, return the jewelry to any Zales, Gordon’s or Zales Outlet store. We will replace the diamond* with one of similar value and quality at no charge to you. In the event that the diamond cannot be replaced because of the uniqueness of the stone, setting or the damage that has been incurred to the mount or prongs, the sole remedy may be for us to replace the entire item with similar merchandise at no charge to you. To maintain your Lifetime Diamond Commitment limited warranty, you need only bring your diamond to Zales every six months for cleaning and inspection, along with your record keeping card.

*Lab-created diamonds will be replaces with lab-created diamonds. This includes the lab or and materials necessary to set the replacement diamond.

Lifetime Cleaning and Inspection

You may have your Zales diamond cleaned and inspected as often as you want, free of charge, for as long as you own it.

For example, if you buy your diamond in January, bring it in every July and January. If you bought it in February, bring it in every August and February, etc. When you bring your diamond to Zales for your semiannual inspections, a Zales Jewelry Consultant will verify the inspections on your record-keeping card.

Lifetime Guaranteed Diamond Trade-In Value

Zales will gladly accept your Zales diamond* with a valid Zales receipt toward your next diamond jewelry purchase, provided the net purchase price of the new item is at least twice the price you paid for your original diamond purchase. Colored gemstone jewelry items are not eligible for trade-in. We guarantee that the item you trade will be valued for trade-in at Zales at 100% of its original net purchase price. Trade-ins of in-store and online purchases are accepted at most Zales locations.
