If your order is time-sensitive, we recommend calling to discuss desired delivery dates based on your purchase date. The estimated timeline is from the purchase date (SHIPPING TIME NOT INCLUDED).

If You Order the Incorrect Size: Our rings are made-to-order and, because of their unique inlays, cannot be simply resized. When we make your ring, we create it according to the information you provide. If for any reason the information you provide is incorrect, don't worry. Jewelry by Johan, out of loyalty, will split the cost of replacing a miss-sized ring if you return the ring to Jewelry by Johan within 10 days. Upon receipt, we will issue you a 50% in store credit based on the original purchase price of the ring when purchased. You, the customer, will be responsible for the remaining 50% of the cost of making you a new different sized ring. If you did not order a custom ring sizer and your ring does not fit, you are responsible for the return shipping costs.

If you order a custom ring sizer as part of your original purchase, but the ring you receive is incorrectly sized, you can return it and we will remake it in the correct size for no cost to you!

Engraved Rings: If there are any defects in your engraving that we are responsible for, it qualifies for our return policy.

Question: Do you offer an extended warranty?

We offer lifetime meteorite ring protection, which means that you get to wear your meteorite ring care-free. Send us your meteorite ring for free cleaning and re-etching, a $75 value. You only pay for shipping and we’ll do our best to make your jewelry look as good as new. Similarly, all of our antler and wood rings are sealed with a proprietary product we call Ring Armor to help protect and greatly increase the water-resistance of your inlay. If, anytime after your purchase, you find a chink in your Ring Armor, we’ll redo it for free, a $35 value.

Adding your items to your home-owners insurance policy is a low-cost way to cover yourself in the event of loss, damage, theft etc. Coverage costs will vary dependent on your item value and geography, but for most people, insuring your jewelry will cost 1-2% of its value  (e.g. a $5,000 ring will cost you an additional $50-$100 annually). Or, Jeweler's Mutual offers affordable insurance coverage.
