    Selecting jewelry

    How do I find out the correct ring size?

    If you don't know the size of the ring you need to buy, read our suggestions on how to measure a ring size correctly or how to secretly find out the size.

    If I’m not sure about the ring size, is it better to order a slightly larger or smaller ring?

    When deciding this, it’s better to choose a slightly smaller size. Increasing a ring by 1-2 sizes is easier than reducing the size of a ring. However this does not apply to wider rings, where it is safer to choose a larger size because wider rings have a tighter fit than thinner ones. For rings with precious stones or ones which are engraved, resizing can be a problem and in most cases we prefer to exchange the ring for you for a new one. The only condition is that you need to return it to us unworn. 

    Can you make jewelry in a different gold color?

    Yes, this is generally possible - and at no extra cost. Please indicate the gold color you would like in a note with the order or write to us at info@klenota.com or complete the “Questions about the product” form which you’ll find on every product page. We’ll confirm it and let you know whether the change you would like is possible.

    What is a hallmark?

    A hallmark is a specific mark on the jewelry itself that provides information about its authenticity and purity. Prior to being hallmarked, the jewelry is also marked with a maker’s mark of the manufacturer or importer. In the Czech Republic, when it comes to hallmarks the international Convention on the Control and Marking of Articles of Precious Metals is in force. You can find out more information about hallmarks on our blog.

If you need more time to pick it up, please let us know at info@klenota.com or +420 603 219 313. You can also advise us of the day you need to collect the jewelry on in a note with your order.

    Ordering with KLENOTA

    I'm buying a ring. Where do I state the size I need when making an order?

    Please write the ring size or inner diameter of the ring in a note at the time you make your order. If you don't know the size of the ring you need to buy, read our suggestions on how to measure a ring size correctly or how to secretly find out the size.

    How do I know what stage my order is at?

    We will let you know of the progress of your order by email at every stage – we’ll confirm the order, let you know about the approximate delivery date and we’ll also contact you before we send it out. If the jewelry has a longer lead or production time, we will regularly keep you updated with details of what stage of production it is at.

    How do I cancel an order?

    Just send us an email to info@klenota.com and we'll take care of it.

    Will I receive the jewelry in a box?

    Yes, we pack each piece of jewelry safely into a box which you’ll receive with your order free of charge.

    Will I get a certificate with the jewelry?

    Yes, we issue a certificate with each piece of jewelry which includes a description of the material and any stones used as well as the total weight. Jewelry with a diamond of 0.50 ct or greater in size also comes with an additional certificate from the GIA, HRD or IGI international companies. If you would like us to provide this certificate for smaller stones, please let us know and we will arrange it for you.

    What warranty does the jewelry carry?

    We provide a two year warranty on all jewelry. For any manufacturing defects, we will cover all costs of repair or replacement including postage. 

    The warranty does not apply to any jewelry which has been modified by another goldsmith or damaged or broken through some action. See our warranty and returns page for more details.


    Customer service, adjustments, exchanges and returns 

    The ring doesn’t fit. Are you able to adjust it or exchange it?

    As a given, we will adjust or exchange a ring for you for free within 60 days of purchase. The only condition for ring adjustments and exchanges is that you send it to us unworn. After 60 days, we charge a fee for the service.

    Before buying a ring, we recommend that you get your ring size measured at your nearest jewelry store or at our studio. There are more details on modifying or exchanging rings here.

    Can I return jewelry I have purchased?

    You can return jewelry within 60 days of purchase without specifying any reason. Exceptions to this are situations where we have customized the jewelry according to your wishes, where the jewelry has been modified by another goldsmith or the jewelry has been broken, used, worn or otherwise damaged. See our returns page for further details.

    Can I return or exchange jewelry without the certificate and box it came in?

    The international certificate from GIA, HRD or IGI which is sent out with some jewelry as well as the gift box the jewelry comes in are considered a part of the purchased product so this certificate and the gift box must be returned along with the jewelry in order to obtain a refund. This is also the case with the KLENOTA certificate which is sent with the jewelry and which serves as a warranty certificate. Read more about this in our Terms and Conditions.

    How long does it take to process a refund?

    We will refund your money within 14 days of you, returning the jewelry back to us. Card refunds can take a little longer due to transfers between banks.

    Do you modify or repair jewelry made by someone else?

    No, we only modify or repair our own jewelry.

    How do I take care of jewelry made of precious metals, stones or pearls? 

    Each type of material requires a slightly different process. Please read our suggestions on how to care for your jewelry.

    I need to repair my KLENOTA jewelry. What should I do?

    Jewelry repairs or modifications can be arranged online by sending us an email to info@klenota.com. We will then agree on the next steps with you and send you details of the approximate cost of any modifications. It will help us if you attach a photo of the damaged jewelry with your email. Details on what to do can be found here.

    Do you buy gold or gold jewelry?
