Phenomenal Jewelry, Exceptional Service
We stand behind our designers and their products and will repair any piece with unforeseen manufacturing issues. To maintain your warranty we ask that you bring in your jewelry for cleaning and inspection twice a year. Upon request, we can provide special care instructions tailored to your piece.
Our customer wish-lists are a great way to keep track of all your jewelry desires. We write down and keep on file your specific favorites to make shopping easy for you, your spouse, your significant other or your friends and family. This way, you get exactly what you want but you can still be surprised! For a more direct approach, try one of our hint-hint cards. With the exact information written on the card, the only thing you need to do is "drop the hint."
With any piece of Plumb Gold jewelry, we offer free cleaning and inspection! Bring your jewelry in any time to keep it looking like new! *
*In the unlikely event of damage from cleaning, we do not assume responsibility for pieces not purchased from us.

Values given in written appraisals represent the retail price at which the appraised item may be purchased in a retail jewelry store and do not necessarily reflect the price at which the appraised or similar jewelry may be purchased at Plumb Gold. Consideration is given to design execution, quality, brands, and trademarks. Because jewelry appraisal and evaluation is not a pure science, and is therefore subjective, estimates of replacement value may vary from one appraiser to another. Such variance does not necessarily constitute error on the part of the appraiser. Appraisals are prepared solely as an estimate of approximate replacement value at a specific time and place using current market information. Appraisals at Plumb Gold are prepared using standards set by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). The GIA is internationally recognized as having the strictest and most comprehensive set of grading standards in the jewelry industry.
