  16. Please note that slight irregularities and variations in craftsmanship or natural characteristics, or internal inclusions, visible or otherwise, in gemstones are unique and individual to each item. These characteristics are considered as part of the character of the item, and should not be considered a defect.
  17. Complimentary Cleaning and Inspection Services on Diamond Rings We recommend having your diamond ring cleaned and inspected every six months or if it undergoes any potential trauma. Inspections may help prevent the loss of a stone and extend the life of your jewelry. Cleaning and inspection service is free of charge to Vena Amors customers on their Vena Amors diamond rings. The customer only pays for shipping, and Blue Nile pays for return shipping. Repairs to your ring mounting can also be done at this time at a cost. Please contact us for complimentary cleanings.

  20. Fine jewelry is not impervious to normal wear, activities or trauma. This is particularly true for rings since hands are regularly subjected to considerable abuse. We do not provide warranties for damage due to normal wear, product loss, loss of stones or theft. Damage or loss that results from failure to obtain repairs necessary to maintain the integrity of the product are also not covered.
  21. Some examples of common jewelry issues that would not be considered manufacturing defects include: Discoloration due to exposure to chemicals, make-up, swimming pools, hot tubs or bathing. Prongs and precious metals, in general, wear over time and may require “building up” or restoration work as normal wear. Bent, caught or worn out prongs(s) allowing a stone to fall out or be lost due to normal wear or other damage. Lost stone or a stone has fallen out due to chipping or breaking caused by normal wear or other damage.
