We stand behind any John Dyer gem we sell 100% and we extend our warranty to 30 days provided you notify us of any problems with the gem within 48 hours of receipt. All treatments and gemogical descriptions are guaranteed accurate and if you send any John Dyer gem to GIA (report must be back within the 30 day warranty period, you may ask for extra days if needed at our discretion, if GIA is running behind) we will buy back the gem and refund your shipping costs if the gem is not what we say it is (type), has been subjected to any treatment not listed other than simple heat, if gems are marked unheated they are unheated and if not marked unheated may or may not be unheated. Deep Blue topaz is always an irradiated gem whether listed as such or not. This meets with industry standards and expectations. This is our highest level of guarantee and applies to all John Dyer gems purchased through Chateau Peridot.
