Working with Customers Diamonds and Jewelry
Setting Customer Diamonds
As a high-end manufacturing jeweler Whiteflash offers services which include setting customers’ diamonds, provided certain conditions are met. There is inherent risk in handling and setting diamonds although problems are rare. We only work with customer diamonds with the express understanding that Whiteflash is not liable for any damage, loss, theft, mysterious disappearance or any other potential danger. We strongly recommend that customers carry personal jewelry insurance for their high value items, and that they understand the coverage deductibles and exclusions. In order for Whiteflash to agree to work on a customer’s diamond the following conditions must be met.
- The diamond must be lab certified by either GIA or AGS. (Customer must provide the original lab certificate with the diamond)
- Customer submits copy of insurance policy covering the diamond
- Customer signs legal waiver of liability
Whiteflash employees and craftsman take all normal precautions to ensure the safety and security of all orders.
All diamonds to be submitted to Whiteflash must be pre-authorized. Upon receiving a customer’s diamond it is inspected carefully and verified against the certificate by our staff gemologists. It is then photographed in detail before any work is done on it. After completion of the project the item is verified and photographed once again before shipping or delivery.
Setting Whiteflash diamonds in Customer Settings
We also provide services related to setting Whiteflash diamonds in customer supplied settings. A waiver of liability is similarly required for customer’s jewelry item before work can be performed. Whiteflash will take all precautions to safeguard the customer property but assumes no liability for any damage, loss, theft, mysterious disappearance or other hazard.
