We make every effort to represent products as accurately as possible. However, due to photography techniques and differences in monitor color and display capabilities, images of products may appear slightly smaller or larger than actual size, and color may vary. Other items may be represented at a larger than actual size in order to clearly show details, or smaller than actual size in order to show the entire item. America Online users may experience blurry, distorted images due to proprietary AOL browser settings. Also, in compliance with FTC regulations and the standards set forth by our industry, the total carat weight of the diamonds shown on the Web Site may vary by plus or minus 0.04 carats from the presented total weight. Additionally, when a piece of our fine jewelry contains more than one diamond, it is our policy to present an average grade for color, clarity, and carat weight. We strive to provide our customers with the most accurate information at all times in order to aid them in making an informed purchase.
Leo Diamond jewelry is available exclusively from authorized Leo Diamond retail jewelers. These include all Kay Jewelers and Jared the Galleria of Jewelry stores.
Buyers should be wary of purported Leo Diamond merchandise sold through unauthorized channels. Beware of counterfeits. All jewelry purchases should come with a Certification which is provided to authorized Leo Diamond retail jewelers. [make sure this is OK with Sterling, as with the TC generally]
