Question
Dear Peter,
Usually what are the kinds of warranties that I can get from buying diamonds from reputable retailers? I understand there are warranties for buyback and exchange. What else?

Answer
Hi Choo,

I think on top of the buyback and exchange you should get an appraisal  and if the stone is over 1 carat i would ask for a GIA certificate. That way there is a quality warranty implied by the Certificate. There should also be a written gaurantee on the workmanship on the jewelry. That should cover all aspects of the purchase good luck.
