May I order rings with the gemstones going all the way around?
Many of our clients prefer the gemstones in their rings to go all around. We love that too. With a few exceptions, these rings need to be made to order. We will be happy to send you a stock ring to view before placing your special order. We guarantee the ring you receive will be the same quality as the sample. If there is a difference in the diamond or other gemstone weight, the price will be adjusted up or down accordingly.
What if I don't know my (her) finger size?
If you are unsure of your (her) size, simply stop into a local jewelry store and have your (her) finger measured by a professional. If this is not convenient, we will mail you a ring sizer free of charge. We do not recommend taking one of her rings to a store to have it measured. It is unreliable, because: This ring may not be a proper fit. It may be a proper fit on a different finger. It is difficult to get an accurate measurement from a ring that is not round.
May I order custom lengths on bracelets and necklaces?
Yes. Virtually all necklaces and bracelets—even bangles—may be ordered in a larger or smaller size. You may want us to send the stock size first for you to try on and approve. We will guide you through the process of measuring the difference you need. We ask that you be certain of the style and size, as Maurice Badler cannot accept returns on special order lengths.
Can parts of my order be shipped to different addresses?
If you have multiple gift recipients, we recommend placing a separate order for each one.
If an item is back-ordered, when you will charge my credit card?
If an item is significantly back-ordered, we will contact you before charging your card. For special orders, including custom sizes and lengths, your card will be charged when you place the order.
Do you have a layaway plan?

Gems & Jewelry
Are certain gemstones enhanced or treated to improve color or clarity?
Gemstone purchasers should be aware that natural gemstones are processed from the time they are extracted from the earth by one or more traditionally-accepted jewelry industry practices. All gemstones shown in our catalogs and website have probably been subjected to a stable and possibly undetectable enhancement process. All relevant information will be readily provided to the best of our knowledge. Prevailing market values are based on universally practiced and accepted processes by the gem and jewelry trade.
Maurice Badler does not knowingly sell lab grown, coated, clarity enhanced or laser-drilled diamonds. Our fancy colored diamonds are natural color, with the exception of black diamonds.
What are black diamonds?
They are natural diamonds that have undergone heat treatment. Typically, a cutter uses nicely cut diamonds that are relatively free of inclusions that are not the finest white color. When the treatment is applied, the result is a rich black color with lots of reflective sparkle. Natural black diamonds do occur, but they are inconsistent in color and often full of cracks. The color-enhanced blacks are far more attractive.
Do you buy or sell estate jewelry?
We now have a section on our site for estate jewelry. Click here to go directly to the estate section. Except for the pieces shown there, all of our jewelry is new. Estate pieces are clearly labeled as such and are also backed by our one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
Can you assist me with an insurance claim for lost or damaged jewelry?
We are very experienced in working with insurance companies for jewelry claims. It is our goal to make sure you get a replacement that is at least as good as the original item. We work for YOU, not them and will ensure you are fully satisfied. Call us and we will provide you with the documentation necessary to begin your claim.
Should I have my jewelry insured?
We generally recommend purchasing jewelry insurance on items valued at $1,000 or more. While your homeowner or renter policies cover you against theft of an aggregate amount, this does not cover you in case of loss or damage; and there is often a deductible. It is possible to attach a rider to your policy that will cover you against theft, loss or damage of individual items, usually with no deductible. Contact your agent for details on insurance coverage. You will need an appraisal for insurance purposes, which we provide free of charge with your purchase of $1,000 or more. Please see our blog article for more information or call us for recommendations.
May I return an item that I bought for a refund or exchange?
We will gladly accept returns or exchanges on items as long as they are received within 30 days of purchase. The jewelry must be in new and saleable condition, with no alterations. Engraved items and special orders may not be returned or exchanged. No return authorization number is required.
If the item was a gift, you may exchange the items for other jewelry, a merchandise credit or gift certificate or we will give a refund to the original purchaser.
Do you extend your return policy during the Holidays?
Purchases made in November and December may be returned until January 15th of the following year, or 30 days after the day of purchase, whichever is later.
How should I send my return?
Please send jewelry, packaged securely and fully insured, to this address:
Badlers 95-22 63rd Road, Suite 422 Rego Park, NY 11374
We advise using insured mail from the US Postal service. UPS is also a secure choice, but be aware of surcharges imposed by some package convenience stores.
If I have jewelry made to order and I change my mind, can I send it back?
Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on items that were: custom made to order altered to your specifications engraved
If I have a problem with jewelry I’ve purchased from Badler Jewelers, and it is past the warranty period, can I bring or send it to you to be repaired?
Yes, of course. We will quote a price to you before doing any work. Please let us do the repair work on items purchased from us. In many cases, the item should be sent to the original manufacturer. Please contact us before sending in your repair. We may ask to set up a video call to see what is needed.
How long do repairs take?
This depends on the nature of the work that is required. We will give you a delivery estimate when we have examined the item.
Can rings or bracelets be sized if my size changes?
Most, but not all, rings can be sized without affecting the structural integrity of the ring. Rings with enamel or gemstones all the way around may not be sizable. Link bracelets are usually easy to shorten.
If I have a problem with jewelry I purchased elsewhere, can you help?
When you are in our family of clients, you are part of our family. We will do our best to handle all of your jewelry needs, including repairs.
If I lose half a pair of earrings, do I have to buy a new pair?
In many cases, our designers will accommodate us by allowing us to order half a pair of earrings for replacement. If it is an earring we make ourselves, we more than likely have the mold and can create the missing half. In either case, you will only be charged half the current price of a new pair. We’ll repolish your remaining half so it looks like new at no charge.
