Product Images
We have attempted to accurately depict the colors of the products offered on this site.

Online Purchase
We are committed to providing our customers with a secure shopping environment. We maintain practices and procedures designed to ensure the security, integrity and confidentiality of customer information, and use various security measures to ensure that your credit card information is protected, including the latest in security technology. When you place an order through our shopping basket, your personal information is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the industry standard security protocol for encoding sensitive information. SSL creates a shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, the SSL transmission is indecipherable.

This technology, together with our other security measures, protects your personal information. We constantly monitor and adopt, as appropriate, new technological improvements designed to protect and ensure the accuracy and security of customer information.

We accept payment through the following methods: PayPal, credit card, and bank transfer.

We use PayPal’s Shopping Cart software to process orders and payments. You can pay for your purchases with your credit card or through your own PayPal account. PayPal encrypts all sensitive information, such as your credit card number, with secure socket-layer (SSL) technology. This technology is the encryption method of choice for reputable, secure online vendors, and it will keep your information safe.

shop.zydoamerica.com reserves the right to modify its security policy at any time, with or without notice.

Availability
shop.zydoamerica.com has a large collection in our warehouse. As such, most of what you see on the site is in stock and will ship within 4 days of a completed transaction. We will notify you that your package has left either by email or by phone.

That being said, a lot of the time, due to a high volume of orders or due to the item being on backorder, we simply cannot get the item out in that time frame. If this is the case, we will get in touch with you in a timely manner and sort out either a reasonable time frame for you to receive your order or find something else that suits your tastes. If you have already paid but the item is not in stock, we will be happy to refund your money or place an order for that item for you. We are not in the business of holding your money hostage and the transaction will be refunded in the same manner it was applied.

It is also important to keep in mind that Italian Jewelry of America Inc and/or ZYDO S.R.L. sell across multiple platforms such as the website, to dealers, to retailers, at trade shows and we often have pieces out on memos to different stores around the world. As such, it is always possible, however highly unlikely, that slight shipping delays can occur. If you are ever concerned about the stocking status of a particular piece, simply contacting us will clear up any questions you might have.

Our Return/Refund Policy
As a company that values its customers, we strive to provide you with an experience that makes you feel confident in your purchase and use of our products and services. We hope your selection brings you many years of enjoyment. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it within 10 days from the day the jewelry arrived in the address provided. Everything we sell is authentic and new. We are serious about our products and have no reason to hide behind ridiculous restocking and return fees. The only thing you will have to pay for is return shipping.

All jewelry must be in original condition (unworn and unaltered) and accompanied by the original packaging, instructions and warranty documents. Resizing of rings, bracelets, and necklaces done by the customer voids the return policy.

All returns must have a Return Authorization (RA) number. As such, to get an RA number, you’ll need to get in touch with us prior to shipping it back. This number must be displayed on the outside of your box and will expedite the process.

RETURNS WILL BE CREDITED IN FULL.

Credit will be issued in the same form that your payment was made. We cannot refund you cash for a purchase you made with a credit card.

We expect the same level of security and shipping when you are getting the package back to us. All returns must be shipped with a traceable courier such as UPS or USPS. Do not ship via FedEx, as FedEx does not insure jewelry valued above $500. Return shipment must be pre-paid and fully insured for the amount you expect credit. Collect shipping will be refused. In case of a loss or damage, customer is liable.

If your purchase was a special order, you are not subject to the standard return policy. Due to their specialized nature, these items usually cannot be returned. If your item is a special order item, we will notify you at the time of purchase. This mostly applies to jewelry that is not in stock and has to be ordered.

Please Note:
Your packing slip must accompany your return.

All returns are subject to inspection by our Quality Assurance team before a refund is processed.

shop.zydoamerica.com is not responsible for merchandise that it does not receive or that is not returned in accordance with these terms.
