Information On Our Site
Houston Gold Exchange makes every attempt to ensure that our online catalog of products is as complete and accurate as possible. Every computer monitor is set differently so size and color may vary slightly. To give you the opportunity to view our products in detail, some products may appear bigger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs.
Our goal is to provide you with as much detail and information about your possible purchase as we can so that you can see the shape and beauty of said item. In compliance with industry standards and FTC regulations, Houston Gold Exchange states that carat total weight in all purchases may vary 0.05 carats from stated weight.
On Houston Gold Exchange’s site we provide measurements of our products based on manufacturing specifications. Slight tolerances may be accounted for based on finishing during manufacturing. Width tolerance on machine made wedding bands of 0.20 is allowed and cast manufactured rings may vary slightly more.
As far as gemstone and pearl measurements, a tolerance of 0.25mm is allowed.
When diamond jewelry is set with multiple diamonds, we will provide the minimum carat weight for the piece. Clarity and color grades are expressed either as an average or minimum depending on the number of diamonds. If stated as an average, collectively the quality is equal to or exceeds the grade state and if expressed as a minimum, all diamonds within the piece are at or above the stated quality.
