For your convenience atlanticgems.com accepts the following credit cards:

American Express

A debit card is treated differently than a credit card by your bank. A debit card is much like a credit card in that it may display a credit card company logo, like Visa or MasterCard, but a charge to your debit card uses funds directly from your bank account. The biggest difference is that your bank may institute a daily charge limit on your debit card. If the price of your order exceeds a daily limit set on your debit card we will notify you, as this will prohibit us from processing your order.

Pay Pal

In addition to credit card payments atlanticgems.com also accepts payments via Pay Pal. During the checkout process simply select Pay Pal under payment and you will receive a Pay Pal invoice at your primary email address with an exact total after your order has been processed.

Legal Notices
At atlanticgems.com, we make every attempt to ensure that our online catalog is as accurate and complete as possible. In order to give you the opportunity to view our products in great detail, some products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs; and since every computer monitor is set differently, color may vary slightly. Our objective is to provide you with as much information and detail about your prospective purchase as possible so that you can see the beauty and shape of a particular item.

We have established relationships with several of the best suppliers to acquire an exceptional selection of beads, findings, diamonds, gold, and gemstones. Because our product selection is large, there is a possibility that product availability and pricing might change before we have an opportunity to update our web site. Our prices are also subject to change without notice.

Infrequently, data may be inaccurately displayed on our site due to system errors. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur.
