Return Policy

Repeat customers are the lifeblood of every business and we at Beaut Gems aim is that every customer should be 100% satisfied with their purchase.  However, we understand that it is difficult to buy gemstones online without seeing them in person first and there are problematic issues with photographing gemstones.  For these reasons, we guarantee a full refund of your purchase price if you are unhappy with your gemstone acquisitions. From the time you receive your shipment, you have 10 days in which to carefully inspect your item.  If you feel that you would like to return them, just contact us within this time and we will cheerfully refund your money.  Return Postage not included.

Gemstone Photographs

Gemstones by nature have unique refractive properties that deal with light in different ways and gemstones may differ in colour depending upon the light to which they are subjected.  A consequence of this is that gemstone photography is an extremely specialised and difficult task.  Beaut Gems takes particular care in photographing their gemstones to ensure you have the photographs available to make the most informed decision.  Whilst every care is taken to ensure the photograph is the most accurate representation of the gemstone, there may be colour variations from time to time, from light source to light source.  Nonetheless, we have the confidence in our gemstones to provide a 100% refund if not completely happy conditional that the gemstones are returned in their original condition.  Please contact us directly if you have any questions about our photography and lighting methods or specific questions about any of our listed items.
