Non-custom, unworn, undamaged pieces must be exchanged within 14 days of receipt (based on USPS timestamp date received).
All exchanges require pre-authorization. You will be charged a $10 dollar restocking fee and you’re responsible for any shipping fees. Please email LOVE@jamesmichelle.com with your order information and you will be supplied with a Exchange Authorization Form. Returns may take up to 10 business days to process from date of receipt at the studio.
If you are not satisfied with an item and don’t know what to get next we are more than happy to keep credit on file! Follow “How do I exchange my order” instructions and ask for store credit. Email us at LOVE@jamesmichelle.com to redeem your credit when you are ready to order.

Yes, If you are unhappy with the length of a chain, email us and we will work with you to resolve the issue. We do accept length exchanges, however you will be responsible for any shipping costs and may be subject to a $10 re-working fee as well additional chain length fee.
We can exchange your ring for a different size for a $10 dollar restocking fee and are responsible for any shipping costs. We advise keeping any of the stacking rings to gift and reorder the right size, as the fees to exchange sometimes equal the cost of the ring.
About the jewelry
Gold fill is a great alternative to solid gold jewelry. It is a pressure bonded layer of gold that has 100 more gold than plated and does not tarnish as easily. These characteristics make it a beautiful, durable, and economical alternative to sold gold, that will last years if cared for properly.
No. We do not have any nickel in any of our products at James Michelle Jewelry.
All of our silver is made out of .925 genuine sterling silver.
Pearls, gems, crystals & stones are natural entities; therefore no two pieces are exactly the same.
All precious metals will tarnish with wear. The best way to avoid tarnishing is to not wear your jewelry in the shower or while working out, and keep it away from chemicals. It is the customer’s responsibility to clean their own jewelry. It is easy to remove light stains, tarnishing and fingerprints with a little bit of care. Please see “How do I care for my jewelry” in the next paragraph.
Store your jewelry in a dry, air-tight area such as the plastic sleeve your jewelry arrived in. Clean with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth. Take extra care around perspiration, saltwater, chlorine, perfume and lotions, as they can tarnish jewelry faster.
Everyone has different sensitivities to metals depending on their body’s chemistry. Literally, everyone is different. We don’t see discoloration that often, but it can occasionally happen. This stain is usually a result of a metal in the jewelry reacting with your skin — or something on your skin, such as hand lotion. In some case it can even be from being anemic or going through a detox (weird, I know!)
JM warranty, repairs and replacements
