Diamonds and Diamond Jewelry

My ring is defined as a "special order." Why am I asked to call Customer Service to complete the sale?

The ring you have chosen requires a longer lead time (4-6 weeks) and must be ordered specifically for you. These are often final sale items and prices can fluctuate depending on specific criteria required in order to customize the ring. Speak with a Zermatt Diamond or Jewelry consultant to get a quote within 2-5 business days (depending on the complexity of the order).

When is the best time to buy a diamond?

Diamond prices are determined by unpredictable fluctuations in the market which can happen at any time without warning. So, fiscally speaking, it's anyone's guess. But if you‘re currently in the market for a diamond, and you've chosen one but are reluctant to finalize the purchase, contact us within 72 hours and we'll lock in the price for you. However, in all fairness, we reserve the right to correct pricing errors if - and when - they occur. 
Helpful hint: If you happen to find a diamond that is very similar to another (but priced lower) - and you wish to prevent a savvy visitor to our site who will identify it and purchase it quickly - we recommend that you ask us to place it on a 48-hour reserve.

Why do nearly identical diamonds differ in price?

We're constantly sourcing diamonds to offer the finest quality at the most competitive prices. In the industry, prices are based on suppliers' buying power and market conditions at the time of sourcing. We price our diamonds based on our cost, not the current market or solely by its quality and size. And regardless of how competitively a diamond is priced at Zermatt, we always pass the savings onto you. 
Helpful hint: Select customers tend to quickly identify the best values of a seemingly identical diamond. So if you are interested in a diamond that appears to be of a higher value, call one of our diamond experts to review its characteristics. If the diamonds are virtually the same - yet one's value stands out from the other - they tend to sell fast. If you request additional time to decide, our diamond experts will grant you a (no-obligation) 24 or 48-hour hold on the diamond in question.

Are your ring settings available without a center stone?

Yes. Many of our ring settings are available for purchase, except those with integrated heads that secure the diamond such as Halo settings, bezel rings, three-stone rings and Monique Lhuillier. Please note: We do not size blank settings, and they can only be accepted for return within 30 days (in unaltered and in original condition). For additional information on which settings are available, contact a Zermatt representative.

What is your ring resize policy?

Free ring sizing available on all purchases.

Do you have a diamond price guarantee policy?

Yes. We have a buy back gaurantee when you upgrade the stone.
