Learn More About Buying Gold & Our 24k Investment Jewelry | Laurea
WHERE DO WE SOURCE OUR GOLD?
Laurea is committed to only sourcing Conflict Free Gold. The majority of Laurea's gold is mined in Canada.
WHAT DOES 24K MEAN?
Gold purity is expressed in karats. Karats measures the parts per 24, for example a 14 karat ring would be 14 parts gold and 10 parts other alloys. So 14/24 or 58.3% gold. 24 Karat jewelry is 24/24 parts gold or in other words 100% gold.
WHERE IS LAUREA JEWELRY MADE?
Laurea is based in beautiful Palm Beach Florida, and is proud to say that the majority of pieces are made locally. In an effort to create the best pieces possible Laurea also partners with local artisans in Italy.
DOES LAUREA CHARGE SALES TAX?
Laurea is required to charge sales tax in states where a physical presence is located. If shipping internationally there may be additional customs or duties.
WHAT IS LAUREA’S RETURN POLICY?
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your Laurea jewelry you may return it for a full refund so long as the return is initiated within 24 hours of delivery. Due to Laurea jewelry being a physical comodity with values fluctuating daily with the price of gold, after the 24 hours Laurea jewelry may still be returned but only at its gold value less a 10% unwind fee. We offer free returns for orders within the Continental US. Other orders may incur a return shipping fee. We cannot accomodate returns on International orders, including Canada, but can accomodate sell backs for international clients.
HOW DOES BUY BACK WORK?
Your Laurea jewelry is literally worth its weight in gold and at any time you can sell back your Laurea pieces at their current gold value less an unwind fee of 10%. To learn more about this and other features please see our [link] regarding Laurea's investment journey.
HOW DOES TRADE UP OR EXCHANGES WORK?
Your jewelry portfolio should grow with you and always reflect your style. Save up for that large purchase by investing in smaller pieces along the way or simply trade an old piece for a new style. Here, your gold is worth more than its weight in gold - 10% more. Old pieces traded in are credited to your account at 110% of their gold value towards new pieces. To learn more about this and other features, please see Laurea's investment journey.
WHAT IS A TROY OUNCE?
Gold is typically quoted in troy ounces which has been a measure used since the middle ages. A troy ounce weighs 2.75 grams more than the standard (avoirdupois) ounce. One standard ounce is 28.35 grams while a troy ounce is 31.1 grams.
HOW DO I FIND MY SIZE RING, BRACELET OR CUFF?
For sizing please see our size guide
WHY DO SOME SMALLER RING SIZES COST MORE THAN LARGER SIZES?
Each of our rings are individually hand cast and finished. Because of this hand crafted process there are fluctuations in weight for individual pieces and some smaller rings may end up weighing more than a larger ring of the same style. While this is rare, the differences in weight between sizes are often small, and so the price of a smaller size can be higher than that of a larger size. Our prices are based on weight. You can feel confident that you are being charged for the amount of gold you receive.
