Manufacturing Defects covered by the Tocara Limited Warranty:
Most manufacturing defects have to do with the casting of the piece or the type of adhesive that was used (in some cases). Most manufacturing defects will show up quickly, usually within the first month of wear as the structure of the jewelry piece is compromised. Everyone wears jewelry differently; some people can wear their jewelry for years with no issues at all and others require regular repairs and adjustments. Fine jewelry is made of strong, durable materials but is not indestructible or maintenance free. The most common damage to fine jewelry is through wear and tear. Gold and silver can indent and bend, prongs can be pulled, stones can break or chip and fall from their settings if proper wear and care are not being taken.
Here are some examples of jewelry issues not considered to be a manufacturing defect:
- Bent, worn or caught prongs causing a stone to fall out (or causing the ring to bend out of shape).
- Items that are plated (ex: rhodium, rose gold) will dissipate with time. This is a result of wear and tear that could vary on various conditions thereby determining the longevity of the plating or coating.
- Discoloration due to exposure to chemicals, make up, swimming pools, hot tubs, or bathing.
- Tarnishing is a natural chemical reaction. Light to moderate tarnishing can be easily removed (for example using mild soap and water and a soft cloth or with a polishing cloth).
- Damage caused by repair, sizing, cleaning or other services performed by someone other than Tocara.
- A chain, necklace, anklet or bracelet that splits apart right in the middle
