We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you're not, simply return your purchase within 30 days from the day of the purchase.

AOJ allows one return/cancellation per customer or/and per household or the same billing address or the same shipping address per year, any other purchase made by you during this one-year time period is final. In addition, once you receive your purchase and thereafter request a modification of your original purchase, including but not limited to exchanging the center diamond, changing the ring to a different ring, etc., and AOJ starts to process your modification request, you are no longer entitled to receive a monetary refund and you are only entitled to an exchange.

AOJ's Refund Policies

AOJ has a 30-day, no question asked, refund policy (hereinafter "The Refund Period"). The Refund period starts the day after you place your order with AOJ and ends at 5:30 pm PST on the 30th day. It normally takes AOJ Fourteen (14) Business Days to process and ship your order. Only in the event that an order is shipped after the Fourteen (14) Business days processing time period passed, and said delay was caused solely by AOJ, that these additional days will be added to The Refund Period. No other exceptions to AOJ's refund policy apply. For example, if you requested that AOJ hold your order and your request caused a delay in the shipping of your order, The Refund Period starts the day after you place your order with AOJ, no additional days will be added to The Refund Period as a result of this delay as this delay was not caused by AOJ. In the event that you request an expedite delivery or that your order was delivered to you prior to 10-day fulfillment period, then to qualify for a refund you must contact AOJ via email and request an RMA within Fourteen (14) Business days of receipt of your order.

By proceeding to place an order with AOJ you agree to abide by these terms and conditions.


Thirty days from the purchase date but at most 15 days from when AOJ shipped it. Let's take a specific example to make this more transparent. Say you purchased a loose lab diamond on May 20, 2022. The shipping date was May 28, 2022. The return period ends on June 12, 2022. That is 15 days from the date it was shipped, twenty-three days from the purchase date, and not thirty days.
