Four Mine is committed to creating the highest quality jewelry that lasts a lifetime. Our goal is to make you happy with your jewelry now and forever. We offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects. We will replace any diamonds under 0.10ct carat weight that are broken or lost during everyday wear and tear. Diamonds above 0.10ct are not covered under warranty. Center stone diamonds and gemstones on engagement rings are also not covered under warranty. Damage, loss or theft are not covered by your Lifetime Warranty and while we're happy to repair your jewelry, there are fees assessed based on the repair requirements, as determined by our jewelers.
How do I use my warranty?+
If you have jewelry that is in need of repair please contact us. If your Four Mine jewelry has been repaired, damaged or worked on by another jeweler, the Four Mine lifetime warranty policy will expire on that particular jewelry item. Four Mine’s free shipping policies do not apply to jewelry repairs.
How does it work?+
Four Mine’s Replica Ring Preview, makes it easy for you to select the perfect ring. You can experience your favorite styles in the comfort of your home before you purchase.

Is the Home Preview Free?+
The Home Preview service is 100% free. We simply want you to easily and conveniently find the perfect ring style. When you place an order, Four Mine will place a $1 pre-authorization on your credit card as verification of customer billing information. We value your privacy, your information is held in confidence. The $1 authorization will be fully refunded after the replica rings are returned. If the replica rings are not returned for any reason, or are returned damaged beyond repair, your credit card will be charged $50 per ring. By submitting your replica ring order, you authorize Four Mine to charge your credit card.
What are Replica Rings?+
All our replica rings look exactly like real Four Mine engagement rings. Our Replica Rings are made of a white metallic alloy and round one carat diamond simulant. Just by looking at it, it’s hard to tell a Replica Ring apart from a real diamond ring. Replica Rings are only intended for visual purposes, not extended wear, which may result in damage or tarnish.
How do I extend my preview?+
We are happy to speak to you about extending your preview period. We understand that it can take some additional time to make a lifetime commitment. :) Simply contact us and let us know. If your home preview ends on a weekend or holiday, just return the package on the next available day.

Is engraving free?+
We’re excited just to be a part of your big day or proposal! We’re happy to offer free engraving or any band or ring.
What can I get engraved?+
During your checkout process, include your desired engraving. Characters can include numbers or letters. All rings and bands can be engraved with up to 15 characters. Common engravings include names, marriage and engagement dates, religious verses, song lyrics, or anything that has a special meaning for you and your significant other. Inside jokes, puns and nicknames (the mushier the better) are also great options.
Can all rings and bands be engraved?+
Certain eternity rings and bands cannot be engraved. Please contact us if you have specific questions about your chosen style. We will contact you to explain if a ring or band you ordered cannot be engraved for any reason.
How do I find the right size?+
When measuring your finger, a ring should fit snug and comfortably. The most accurate way to find a good fit is by using a ring sizer or having a jeweler measure your finger. Alternatively, have a jeweler measure a ring that is worn on the ring finger to determine the ring size. Fingers may slightly swell in warm weather, so be sure to choose a size that fits comfortably over the knuckle and does not fall off when moving your hand. We’re happy to create rings in quarter sizes and in-between sizes to ensure we can craft the perfect fit.
What can I get resized?+
Four Mine recognizes that ring sizing is not a perfect science. To this end, we offer one free resizing within 30 days of your purchase. You are simply responsible for the insured shipping fees, which amount to $40 including shipping both ways. Please be aware that a resizing down may result in a slight reduction in metal weight, which cannot be reimbursed. Any resizing up will not be subject to additional metal charges. We request up to 1 week to perform a resizing, excluding shipping days. Please Note: Eternity rings cannot be resized or exchanged outside our 30-day return policy.
What are conflict diamonds?+
Conflict diamonds are gems which are obtained in association with human rights abuses, child labor, violence, or severe environmental damage. In the 1990s, many of the world's diamonds came from Africa, particularly regions undergoing civil unrest. Rebel armies in parts of Africa were exploiting alluvial diamond fields to fund their wars against established governments, putting people and the environment in the middle of their conflicts. Diamonds obtained as a result of these activities are called conflict diamonds.
What is the Kimberley Process?+
Adopted in December 2000 by the United Nations General Assembly, this landmark resolution created an international certification process for rough diamonds. A coalition of governments, non-governmental organizations, and the diamond industry established the Kimberley Process to control the export and import of rough diamonds to eliminate the trade in conflict diamonds. The Kimberley Process has stringent requirements on its members to allow them to certify shipments of rough diamonds as “conflict-free.” The Kimberley Process has already been immensely successful, and continues to strengthen its objectives and controls. Today apart from countries like Canada, many African countries supply diamonds that are conflict free and are used to uplift the economy and create a long-term positive impact for people who are employed by mines.
What are Zimbabwe diamonds?+
The most recent influx of conflict diamonds has been from mining in Zimbabwe’s Marange diamond fields. Due to reports of human rights abuses, Four Mine does not purchase or inventory any diamonds that are associated or affiliated with Zimbabwean mining. Four Mine employs trained experts who can identify Zimbabwean diamonds that are in circulation, further ensuring our responsibility in purchasing and sourcing diamonds. Four Mine regularly reviews and improves its conflict diamond and environmental safety standards.
What is Four Mine’s Conflict Diamond Policy?+
Four Mine is committed to the highest level of ethical responsibility. We understand that the diamond you purchase is a symbol of love and commitment. For this reason, we ensure that every diamond we offer is not tainted by conflict or human rights abuses. We work to enforce the strictest standards set forth by the Kimberley Process and United Nations Resolutions. At Four Mine, we’re proud that the distribution of our jewelry, from mine to market, adheres with all international laws and human rights policies.

What is a jewelry appraisal?+
A jewelry appraisal ascertains the retail value of your jewelry. It is determined using market data and takes into account the cut, color, clarity and carat weight of your diamond. Gemstone jewelry will take into account the millimeter dimensions of the stones and the quality of the item. With your appraisal, you can have your jewelry insured and make a claim in case of loss, theft or damage. For an additional fee of $60 we can have your jewelry appraised by a third party lab and send you the original appraisal documents with your order. To request an appraisal, simply email or call us once you have placed your order.
What is your diamond upgrade policy?+
We offer a lifetime upgrade policy for all GIA diamonds purchased from Four Mine. If you’ve like to upgrade your diamond, we’ll apply 100% of the credit toward the purchase of a new GIA certified diamond priced at least twice the original diamond purchase. The diamond must be in its original condition and accompanied by the original GIA grading report. The diamond will need to be inspected and approved by one of our certified gemologists to ensure authenticity. If you’d like to upgrade, simply contact our sales department at (844) 234-6463 and send your jewelry in for inspection. Choose your upgrade and we’ll apply the value of your original diamond purchase as credit against the new purchase. We can then send you the diamond loose or reset in a new ring setting.
