Frequently asked questions
Yes! We offer free ring sizing prior to shipping on all ready to ship rings. Please allow up to ten days for it to be completed before your ring ships. Don't see your size listed on your ring? Double check with us to see if it can be done, we can resize a ring to (almost) any size! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any sizing questions.
Most resizing jobs can be handled by your local jeweler. If you need a recommendation we are happy to provide one. If you would like us to resize it for you, we are happy to do so, there is a $75 shipping charge and a $40 charge for resizing down, and $50 charge for resizing up.
As a woman-owned business, Gem Breakfast understands that ring size can change post pregnancy.
We believe women should never feel uncomfortable wearing something as important as their engagement ring or wedding band
That’s why, if your ring size has permanently changed post pregnancy, we are happy to resize any ring purchased from Gem Breakfast for free.
To request a ring resize please email email@example.com.
We can only extend this service to US based clients at this time.
While most jewelers will charge more for larger size rings, Gem Breakfast has never in its history done this and never will. We believe in 100% size inclusivity and will never charge more larger sizes. Please understand we can only list a certain number of "options" for sizes on our website so you don't see your size listed. It's not because we can't do it or don't want to, we simply have to edit the number of sizes on the Shopify Platform. If you don't see your size listed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they are more than happy to help you make it happen!
For more bands or made to order items we are more than happy to make it in your desired gold content. For changes to 18k it is an additional $75 charge and changes to 14k is a price reduction of $50.
Yes! We love doing engraving and it is a great way to make your Gem Breakfast piece special. Engraving is all done by hand and is $10 a letter. Please note engraving is considered personalization and your item would be considered final sale. You should only do engraving if you are confident in your ring size, as any resizing could force the jeweler to remove the engraving in the process.
Gem Breakfast warranties all settings for one year from when you receive the item and will replace diamonds up to 3mm at no cost unless the item shows signs of undue wear and tear.
Gemstones and diamonds are not guaranteed against loss, chips, wear, and tear. All diamonds and gemstones can be scratched or chipped. We do not guarantee our stones against this kind of damage, as that is out of our control.
It is recommended you have your item insured through a private insurance company to cover any loss, theft, wear and tear, or damage. Gem Breakfast is never responsible for items that display signs of undue damage or wear and tear.
To get insurance you often need an appraisal. We are happy to facilitate this, it costs $150 and takes about a week. Please let us know prior to shipping if you would like our help with an appraisal. To learn more about appraisals we have a blog post on this topic.
Please remember all fine jewelry should be well taken care of and treated with the utmost care.
