To expedite an exchange for a different product, we recommend returning the original item for a refund and placing a new order. Please allow two weeks for your refund to be processed. 

If a package or item delivered to you arrives damaged, please refuse the shipment or call us immediately at 1-800-242-2728.

Special orders are final sale and are not eligible for return or exchange. 

Shipping fees are non-refundable. 

Returns without a Blue Nile Return Merchandise Authorization will be refused upon receipt. Returns with missing paperwork or product will not be processed. 

Non-Resizable Items

Diamond and gemstone eternity rings with a specific number of gemstones per finger size; milgrain or ornate bands; some silver rings; or rings with alternative metals such as Tungsten cannot be resized, so please take care to order the correct ring size at time of purchase. For assistance determining the proper ring size, please contact customer service or use our online ring sizer tool.

Additional shipping charges may be incurred if packages are returned via alternate carriers (including, but not limited to Canada Post). Blue Nile reserves the right to charge your credit card for any fees we incur at time of package receipt. 

How To Prepare A Return Or Exchange

To return a diamond or jewelry item to Blue Nile, please follow the process below: 

1. Select your carrier and initiate your return. 
If returning within 30 days, a free shipping label will be emailed to you once you have initiated your return (limit of two complimentary returns per customer, per year). If returning outside of 30 days (for resizing, cleaning, or repairs), you may return your merchandise using the carrier of your choice. All returns require a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number that must be clearly written on the outside of the shipping box you are returning. Simply print the label and affix to the outside top portion of the box. We offer the following options to initiate your return: 

2. Package your item(s) securely in the original packing materialsIf your return is for refund or exchange, please include any diamond grading reports or appraisal(s). Diamond grading reports and appraisals are not required for repairs and resizes. If your item was delivered with a diamond report and that report is not returned, you will be liable for the cost to replace the grading report. The cost to replace a missing diamond grading report is $150 and is the direct fee paid GIA to re-grade that diamond. (or equivalent amount in other currencies) For security reasons, do not write Blue Nile anywhere on the outside of the box.

3. Insuring your return shipment for its full purchase value is strongly recommendedWe are not responsible for lost or stolen articles. If using our complimentary return service, the shipping label emailed to you includes insurance protection. If you are not using our complimentary service (ex. free return label quota already met, or returning for resizing, cleaning, or repairs outside of 30 days), we offer an expedited return shipping. A fully insured return shipping label is just $30.

Returns are processed weekdays and typically entered into our system within 24 business hours of receipt. Please allow five to 15 business days for this process to complete. 

If you are expecting a refund, credit will be submitted to your bank within three business days. It may take your bank up to 10 business days to post the funds to your account. Bank wire refunds typically take seven to 10 business days after the return has been processed. Returned orders with bank wire as the original payment method will be refunded via bank wire or ACH payment. Orders paid for through PayPal will be credited back to your PayPal account within two weeks. 

Please note that after a significant holiday, heavier return volumes can double the normal return processing times.
