Our Returns & Exchanges Policy

For items purchased directly from James Avery, all returns made within 365 days, in new and unused condition and with a receipt or proof of purchase will be credited to your original method of payment. If we agree to issue a refund with no receipt or proof of purchase, the current retail price will be credited to a James Avery gift card.

James Avery products purchased through another retailer such as Dillard’s or AAFES may be exchanged for another product or returned for a James Avery gift card at any James Avery retail location if the items are in new, unused condition and you have a receipt. All returns and exchanges are handled on a case-by-case basis.

Returns and Exchanges FAQs

What are my options for exchanging?

You have three options for exchanging:

  1. Exchange in one of our James Avery retail stores where a James Avery Associate can ensure your fit and selection.
  2. Return the item as instructed on the Return & Exchange Form and indicate credit to be issued, then purchase the replacement on a separate order either at JamesAvery.com or one of our James Avery retail stores.

The return is processed within 10 days of receipt. Refund to your credit card is dependent on bank rules and may take additional time.

How long do I have to return my item?

Items being returned must be received with a receipt on or before the 365th day since purchase. After 365 days the item/s will need to be evaluated for saleable quality in order to receive a James Avery Gift Card or value to process an exchange.

How do I return a gift?

To return a gift, you can follow the normal return process. Gifts can be returned within 365 days for a James Avery Gift Card or can be exchanged for another item. If you return your gift without exchanging it for a gift card or another item, the buyer of the gift will receive the value of the return on their original form of payment.
