Repairs

Help! I need something fixed

Jewelry is delicate by nature but we understand that things can break.  

Should one of your leMel pieces require a repair, please send us an email at hello@shoplemel.com with a photo and small description of the repair needed.  We will respond with mailing instructions and a quote if necessary.  

leMel will repair, at no charge, any repair needed on a 14k gold item for up to 12 weeks after purchase.  After that repair charges will be incurred by the customer and a quote will be provided.  When repairs are outside of the 12-week window, all repair and shipping charges must be paid for by the customer upfront.
