If a particular diamond has been sold in the period between when a diamonds.co.nz customer places an order and when diamonds.co.nz receives payment, diamonds.co.nz will attempt to source a replacement that is as close as possible to the original and is at a similar price point.

  • It has been less than 30 days since the item was received.
  • The loose diamond — or the diamond set in jewellery — is a diamond that was already available in our New Zealand stock at the time of purchase (diamonds that show on our diamond search page when the "NZ Diamonds" check box is ticked)
  • For jewellery, the piece cannot have been custom designed or varied in any way from one of the standard designs available on diamonds.co.nz, for example, through consultation with one of our designers online, in person or via phone.
  • The item was not exported out of New Zealand through diamonds.co.nz's GST-free service.
