What is your return policy?
Our commitment to you does not end at delivery. Items may be returned or exchanged within 30 days from when they were shipped, no questions asked. The customer is responsible for return shipping fees. To be eligible for return, items must be in their original purchase condition and include all product documentation.
We have extended Christmas returns, too. To ensure your recipients love their Christmas gifts, orders shipped between November 15 through December 15 may be returned through January 15. Our regular 30-day return policy resumes on December 15.
What cannot be returned within 30 days?
Engraved jewellery items, other than rings, may not be returned. Diamonds purchased as part of our Blue Nile Diamond Upgrade Program may not be returned for credit. All Blue Nile engraved rings may be returned for credit, but the engraving fee will not be refunded. The removal of Blue Nile engraving from any exchanged or resized ring is free with no additional engraving fee. Special orders are final sale and are not eligible for return.
Can I return an item that was given to me as a gift?
Yes, Blue Nile is happy to exchange it for merchandise credit within 30 days of purchase. Place the gift in its original packaging with the receipt (if available) and ship it either via FedEx (preferred) with our provided shipping label, or a carrier of your choosing. Your return can be exchanged for an item of equal or greater value. You pay the difference if the new value is greater than the return value.
Will the buyer of my returned gift know that it was returned?
No, we will not alert the buyer that the gift was returned.
Am I required to use Blue Nile's return shipping method?
No. You may choose any carrier you prefer, but we highly recommend that you insure the shipment - particularly on items valued at £250/€500 or higher.
