    Damaged pieces vs. Broken stones

    * If a sculptural component of a piece breaks, cracks or chips, it may be able to be repaired on a case by case basis. 

    * It is rare for a stone to break, however, the stones are created by Mother Nature, and are fragile.  It is essential for the wearer to be very careful while handling their piece. There are no replacements or exchanges offered for jewelry with damaged stones.
