Warranty Statement - 12 Month Guarantee

All jewellery comes with an exclusive 12-month guarantee on quality and workmanship. If you are not completely satisfied with the quality or workmanship of any item we will refund, exchange or repair your purchase at our discretion. Damage resulting from the unfair treatment of jewellery is not covered by this guarantee. Products altered, tempered or repaired by a third party other than Shiels voids this warranty.

Watch Warranty Statement

Shiels Jewellers is an Authorised Retailer for all the brands and products we sell. All our products are sourced directly from the Licensed Manufacturer or Authorised Distributor. All products sold by Shiels are guaranteed to be genuine, brand new, in original condition and delivered with original packaging, warranty cards and instruction manuals where applicable. In the unlikely event that you experience a problem with your watch after receiving it from us, Shiels will assist in claiming the warranty to resolve the issue.

Watch Warranties Don’t Cover Damage

Watch warranties protect against “manufacturer defects”.

Please refer to the manufacturer’s warranty for details on what is not covered.

If a watch has been tampered with, modified, or repaired by a third party will consider the manufacturer will consider the warranty voided.

Lifetime Diamond Guarantee

In addition to our 12-month guarantee, diamond jewellery comes with an exclusive lifetime guarantee from date of purchase. Micro, invisible and pave set jewellery is prone to having diamonds dislodged due to the nature of the fine setting with little gold separating the diamonds in order to maximise the brilliance of the piece. We, therefore, offer a lifetime guarantee with all of these pieces whereby we will replace any micro-set diamonds that may have become dislodged providing the jewellery had not been mistreated.

Shiels will provide a remedy to any major or minor faults assessed. This remedy is in the form of a repair, exchange or refund as per Australia Consumer Law (ACL). Please contact us via our contact us page if you have any issues. 

Diamond Guarantee

Our EGL, GIA, HRD and IGI certificates are recognized around the globe for their integrity, defining industry standards in evaluation and appraisal. Nevertheless, even these institutions vary sometimes when grading the same diamond because The best grading available to date has not yet been proven to be an exact science. These diamond grading laboratories maintain a worldwide presence in the major diamond trading centres, cooperates with leading organizations including the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and run extensive educational programs as part of their dedication to standardize all grading's and raising the level of professionalism in the field. We therefore refuse to be drawn into having to defend any certificates that we supply with any of our diamond jewellery should they be at odds with a local jeweller or any other grading laboratory. We will however be happy to defend the fact that all our diamond jewellery represents excellent value for mone.
