Claims for defects in material and workmanship must be submitted within 30 days of the shipping date. Defects in material and workmanship will be corrected without charge. However, please be aware that even in the finest crystal, minor variations in clarity and color can occur. Occasional air bubbles, chill marks or flow lines are inevitable, especially in molded or blown crystal products. In order to obtain the optimum finish, extra polishing may be necessary, which may cause variations in size. These minor variations in size, quality, color and clarity are not considered defects.
