Product Availability and Pricing

Half Price Gold offers exclusive items that are made-to-order, as well as, special order items, which may take up to 6 weeks for us to receive it from the manufacturer.  If an item does not state it is a special order item, the product should be ready for shipping within 5 – 10 business days.  Once your order is shipped, you can expect to receive it within 2 – 3 business days (excluding Saturday & Sunday).  If you order a piece that has been placed on back order by the manufacturer, we will contact you directly to discuss possible options.

Data, including prices, may be inaccurately displayed on our Site due to system or typographical errors. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur. We reserve the right to correct any and all errors when they do occur, and we do not honor inaccurate or erroneous prices. If a product’s listed price is lower than its actual price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping the product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation. If the order has been shipped, you agree to either return the product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices. Our prices are also subject to change without notice. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Service Department at service@halfpricegold.com.

We do not negotiate prices on our products and all our prices are final.  Also, to keep our prices low, we do not allow comparison purchasing. Comparison purchasing is the act of buying several items with the intent of keeping the one you like best and returning the remainder. This causes undue restocking and inventory overhead and can be very costly. To confirm the quality of a jewelry item, please contact our Customer Service Department at service@halfpricegold.com and we will be happy to help.   

Information on our Site

At Half Price Gold, we make every attempt to ensure that our online catalog is as accurate and complete as possible. In order to give you the ability to view our products in great detail, the photographs of some products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size.  Also, and since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may be slightly varied.

We are dedicated to provide you with the best image, and as much information and detail as possible about your potential purchase so you can see the beauty and shape of each item.  In compliance with industry standards and FTC regulations, Half Price Gold states that carat total weight in all purchases may vary +/- 0.05 carats from stated weight.

On the Site, we provide the measurements of our products based on what the manufactures have provided to us.  We have provided you with all the information we have been given by the manufacturers we buy from.  If you have additional questions about a product’s specifications please contact our Customer Service Department via email at service@halfpricegold.com with the item’s number and your specific question.  We will do our best to find the answer to your question, but we cannot guarantee we will be able to provide you with an answer to your question.

Measurements Tolerances:

  • All Pieces:  Slight tolerances may be accounted for based on finishing process during the manufacturing.
  • Gemstones & Pearls: A tolerance of 0.25mm is allowed.
  • Diamond JewelryFor sets with multiple diamonds, we provide the minimum total carat weight for the piece. Color and clarity grades are expressed as either a minimum or an average depending on the number of diamonds. If stated as a minimum, all diamonds within the piece are at or above the stated quality. If expressed as an average, collectively, the quality is equal to or exceeds the grade stated.

Policy on Ethical Sourcing

At Half Price Gold, we only purchase diamonds through the largest and most respected manufactures who, like us, proudly adhere to and enforce the standards established by the Kimberley Process, an international system that polices the trade of diamonds to ensure they are from sources free of conflict.
