What is your return policy?
Gratia Pearl has confidence in the quality and prices our pearls, so we offer our customers a 100-day Money-Back Guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you may return it to us within 100 days from the date your order was placed.
If you need to return an item, simply login to your account, view the order using the "Complete Orders" link under the My Account menu and click the Return Item(s) button. We'll notify you via e-mail of your refund once we've received and processed the returned item. You can also email email@example.com to receive a return authorization before you ship your items out. We can exchange the product for you, or refund you 100% of the purchase price, no questions asked. Gratia Pearl is not responsible, however, for any damaged, lost or uninsured packages during the return process.
How long will I receive my refund?
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
I know I can exchange for other items, but what about the price difference?
If the product being returned costs less than the item for which it is being exchanged, the difference will be returned as a store credit; if the product being returned costs more than the item for which it is being exchanged, the balance will be requested for payment. $10 shipping and handling fee will be charged on returned items for orders that were sent with free shipping.

How to tell real pearls and fake pearls apart?
All pearl jewelries from Gratia Pearl are guaranteed real. Here are some easy tips, under pearl facts, that you can learn to tell real and fake ones apart.
Is there anything else that I need to know?
Most of our jewelry pieces contain sterling silver or white gold parts. These may tarnish with age. It is possible to shine them with a silver polish cloth, but loss of color does not constitute a basis for return.
The outside pattern of the pearl reflects its natural shape, and is an unavoidable occurrence. We cannot assure to smoothness or roundness of any given pearl.
We encourage our customers to compare our price and quality with other stores before you return your items.
