Terms & Conditions

Thank you for visiting DiamondBuyerNYC.com (this “Site”)! This Site is operated by DiamondBuyerNYC.com (“we,” “us” or “our”) and allows you to: (a) participate in interactive features that we may make available such as selling your previously owned jewelry (“Jewelry”) to us for refining; or (b) simply view this Site. This Terms of Use Agreement (this “Agreement”) governs your use of this Site.

1. Your Use of this Site and Affirmative Representations.

When you use this Site, you represent that: (a) the information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will update your contact information if it changes so that we can contact you; (c) you are not violating any applicable law or regulation; (d) you are 21 years of age or older; (e) you are the legal owner of any Jewelry that you sell or are attempting to sell to us; and (f) you are selling or are attempting to sell Jewelry on your own behalf and are not an agent or a representative of a third party. We reserve the right to request documentation and other proof of compliance with the requirements contained in this Section 1.

2. Shipping and Appraisal Process, Requesting and Accepting/Rejecting a Quote, Payment, Returns and Guaranty Against Loss.

a. Shipping your Jewelry to Us. To request a free, insured Refiner’s Return Pak, please complete the on-line form located on the Site, and then click the button to submit your information. Your Refiner’s Return Pak will be mailed within 24 hours to the address you entered on the on-line form.

We are proud to offer free UPS labels to ship your material. All Jewelry must be sent insured by FedEx, UPS or USPS to provide reliability and security. If you wish to use UPS, please print out the UPS label that is generated by the Site. Once you receive your Refiner’s Return Pak, simply place your unwanted jewelry into the security pack included in the Refiner’s Return Pak, place the security pack in any box or envelope, attach the UPS label to the box or envelope, and ship your Jewelry to us from any UPS location. We will provide you with the 5 UPS locations that are closest to the address you submit to us. You will be able to track your UPS package online.

Your Jewelry shipped via UPS will be insured for up to $500. Jewelry shipped through other methods will be insured for up to $100. If you require additional packaging or insurance for your package, please contact our team at 855-289-3769 for additional assistance.

Please note that we only provide customers with free UPS shipping labels. If you want to send your Jewelry to us by means of USPS please call us at 855-289-3769 to make the necessary arrangements. If you wish to use UPS, you must obtain the applicable shipping label and insurance yourself.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to reject delivery of any envelope or package that appears to be damaged, opened or tampered with, and we will return these envelopes or packages to you by means of USPS. We will have no liability to any customer for returning envelopes or packages in this manner.

b. Jewelry Appraisal. Upon receipt of your Jewelry, we will weigh and evaluate your Jewelry and provide you with a quote by email. We purchase Jewelry for refining, not for resale. Except for small diamonds, prices for Jewelry are based solely on the weight of your Jewelry and karat grade contained in your Jewelry, not on its potential value if resold intact. For this reason, we cannot pay for gemstones in your Jewelry other than small diamonds. Prices for small diamonds are based upon carat weight, color, clarity, cut and shape.

c. Requesting a Quote. You may request that we provide you with an email quote for your Jewelry by including a note in the package you send to us, by emailing us at info@liondiamonds.comor by calling us at 855-289-3769. If you do not request a quote, we will assume that you do not want a quote, and we will evaluate your Jewelry and either send you a check or wire your payment into your account. If you want a quote, we recommend that you request the quote on or before the date you ship your Jewelry to us. We will issue your payment within 24 hours of receipt of your Jewelry, so if we do not receive your request for a quote by the time we receive your Jewelry, we will not be able to provide you with a quote.

d. Accepting/Rejecting a Quote. If you wish to accept the quote, please reply to the email you receive indicating that you accept the quote. If you would like to talk with a Buyers of New York representative about the quote, please respond to the email and let us know what phone number we should call. We may, in our sole discretion, record the call, and if you orally accept the quote during the call, you will be deemed to have accepted our offer. Email quotes will be valid for a period of 12 days. If you do not accept the quote, we will return your Jewelry to you. We will, in our sole discretion, choose the return carrier, insurance and receipt verification method for each transaction. We will insure your Jewelry for no more than the amount we offer you for your Jewelry, (regardless of what you insure the Jewelry for when you mail it to us), unless you notify us by phone at 855-289-3769 that you agree to pay for the additional insurance you request. If you believe your Jewelry is worth more than $100, we recommend that you insure your shipment for the value you think it is worth.

e. Payment. You may select one of two payment options: (a) direct deposit; or (b) check. Please print out the payment form located on the site, check your preferred payment method and enclose the form with your shipment. If you elect direct deposit, please also provide us a voided check and sign the form. Please note that there is a $4.99 fee for direct deposit that we will deduct from the money we wire into your account. PLEASE NOTE THAT BY ELECTING PAYMENT BY DIRECT DEPOSIT YOU WAIVE THE 12 DAY RETURN POLICY.

If you prefer to be paid by direct deposit, we will deposit the fees in your account within 24 hours of receipt of your acceptance of the quote, or if no quote is requested, within 24 hours of receipt of your Jewelry. If you prefer to be paid by check, we will issue you a check within 24 hours of receipt of your acceptance of the quote, or if no quote is requested, within 24 hours of receipt of your Jewelry. We will mail your check to the address you provide on the Buyers of New York Inventory form unless you specify otherwise in writing.

f. Returns. If you elected payment by check and you change your mind about selling your Jewelry, you must notify us either by email or by phone no later than 12 days after the date upon which we issue payment to you. If you do not contact us within this period of time, the Jewelry will be sold to a third party, and we will no longer be able to return it to you.

This 12-day return period cannot be altered for any reason, and we will not be responsible for any loss or damage of any kind if you do not contact us within this return period for return of Jewelry. All Jewelry will be shipped back to you via UPS and insured for no more than the amount we offer you (regardless of what you insure the Jewelry for when you mail it to us), unless you notify us by phone or by email that you agree to pay for the additional insurance you request.

g. Guaranty Against Loss.
