We service most of our jewelry sent for repair (exceptions include jewelry which has been consumed by pets or garbage disposals, or with lost parts on discontinued items). We will work with you to get your piece repaired or replaced, or get it repaired by our local expert(s). We will let you know in advance any repair charges associated with it and shipping fees. Remember to insure your jewelry when you send it to us, and let us know to expect it via a phone call.
Many of the jewels we sell, including the antique and vintage jewelry, have been handmade in small quantities. We are aware that natural wear and tear happens or an accident may occur. Should this be the case with your purchase, please email us a photo of the damage to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can then determine the best course of action to repair it, which may involve sending the piece back for restoration. The repair process may take eight weeks or more.
Customers are responsible for shipping and handling fees incurred for transporting them, and any repair costs. After 30 days of purchase, LALTA will not be held responsible for damaged or broken jewelry.
Please send repairs to:
62 West 47th Street #1101
