The Nationwide Warranty covers the replacement of any missing diamonds from the setting up to 0.20 ctw. If you lose a diamond, take your item into the nearest Preferred Jeweler with your warranty card. They will be able to track your jewelry in our system to see where it was originally purchased. The proper steps will be taken in order to assure that your jewelry is repaired.
Any kind of personal accidental damage to your jewelry would not be covered under the Preferred Warranty ... the warranty states clearly what is covered and hence the requirement for the semi annual inspection to keep your piece in warrantable condition. If this should occur the retailer will charge you to get your jewelry back in warrantable condition and then reinstate the warranty. Insurance coverage is highly recommended.
