Terms & Conditions
These terms and conditions apply to the web site located at www.lauraztai.com and all associated Web sites linked to www.lauraztai.com by Z TAI GROUP INC (collectively ‘the Site’). Please read these terms and conditions (the ‘Terms and Conditions’) carefully.
BY USING THE SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
These Terms and Conditions govern your use of, and any purchase from, the Laura Z Tai Site, and constitute an agreement between you and Laura Z Tai. Laura Z Tai reserves the right to change or modify any of these Terms and Conditions or any policy or guideline of the Site at any time, and in its sole discretion. Any change or modification will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of its changes or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes or modifications. Therefore, you should frequently review these Terms and Conditions and any other applicable policies from time-to-time to understand the terms and conditions that apply to your use of the Site. If you do not agree to the amended terms, you must stop using the Site.
ITEM PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
Laura Z Tai makes every effort to maintain updated quantities of our in-stock items, and up-to-date prices for all of our merchandise. However, in the instance that something is no longer in stock or the price has changed, we reserve the right to notify you of any changes.
Occasionally, a loose diamond or in-stock piece of jewelry will sell in our retail store at the same moment someone is trying to purchase it online. Should a web-purchased piece be unavailable when it says it was in stock, we will notify you immediately with suggestions of similar pieces and/or almost identical loose diamonds. It is up to you at this point if you would like to try one of the suggestions or void the sale completely – it is our goal to make sure you are pleased with your shopping experience at Laura Z Tai.
Conversely, we may not have all items on our website in stock at all times. For these items that are not in stock, they will become special-ordered items, and may take anywhere between 1-12 weeks to receive. Please give us a call or send us an email if you have questions about a specific item’s availability: (717) 490-6673 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The prices of our jewelry and diamonds change periodically to reflect the fluctuations in the metal and diamond market prices. We rigorously work to keep the prices on our website and in our store up-to-date, but we do reserve the right to update the price of a sale. Should this happen, we will notify you immediately and you can choose to move forward with the order at the new price or void it completely.
Comparison purchasing is the act of buying several items with the intent to keep only one. Laura Z Tai does not allow comparison purchasing, so that we can keep our prices low, as such comparison shopping is very costly to our business. If you are unsure about an item or have any questions about how one item or diamond compares to the next, please do not hesitate to either give us a call or send us an email, and one of our diamond and jewelry experts will be more than happy to help you make your choice: (717) 490-6673 or email@example.com.
INFORMATION ON OUR SITE
At Laura Z Tai, we make every attempt to ensure that our online catalog is as accurate and complete as possible. In order to give you the opportunity to view our products in great detail, some products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs; and since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may vary slightly.
Our objective is to provide you with as much information and detail about your prospective purchase as possible so that you can see the beauty and shape of a particular item. In compliance with industry standards and FTC regulations, Laura Z Tai states that carat total weight in all purchases may vary 0.05 carats from stated weight.
On the Site, we provide the measurement of our products based on our manufacturing specifications. Slight tolerances may be accounted for based on finishing during the manufacturing.
For gemstone and pearl measurements, a tolerance of 0.25mm is allowed.
For diamond jewelry set with multiple diamonds, we provide the minimum total carat weight for the piece. Color and clarity grades are expressed as either a minimum or an average depending on the number of diamonds. If stated as a minimum, all diamonds within the piece are at or above the stated quality. If expressed as an average, collectively the quality is equal to or exceeds the grade stated.
POLICY ON ETHICAL SOURCING
At Laura Z Tai, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most respected suppliers who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process, an international system that polices the trade of diamonds to ensure they are from sources free of conflict.
