Please see the Limited Lifetime Warranty for warranty details. Please remit a $14.95 shipping/handling/insurance charge with your ring.

At times, a product submitted for repair cannot be fixed. In this situation, the company reserves the right to remake the product. If you do not wish your ring to be remade, you MUST indicate so in your instructions and we will return it to you in the exact condition in which it was submitted.

Repair Charges

Many repairs are covered at no charge as a benefit of our Lifetime Warranty. Some items may be charged a minimal labor fee. We will not proceed with your repair until we notify you of pending charges and receive your approval. After reviewing the chargeable repair schedule, include a credit card number on the College Ring Adjustment Form to proceed with your repairs without delay.

If you have trouble finding your school, please try the following tips:

  1. Search by school name and city. Example, "washington high dallas".
  2. Search by school zip code. For example, instead of the school name you can search by the school's zip code. Beverly Hills High School could be located by searching "90210".
