Terms of Service
We offer a satisfaction guarantee on all of our work and if there is a fitment issue with your set of grillz (which rarely occurs), we will pay to have your grillz shipped back to us and remake it for you. We will not stop working for you until you are beyond satisfied with your experience.
What Does '100% CERTIFIED AUTHENTIC' Entail:
At Luxe Grillz, your trust is very important to us. We believe that buying a custom-fitted set of luxury grillz online should be simple, honest, and straightforward. To that end, we guarantee that every set luxury grillz on our site is made of solid gold and natural diamonds. Our mission is to be the leading trusted online source for selling gold and diamond teeth sets. Every set of grillz is handcrafted to meet the exact mold of your mouth. We ensure guaranteed fitting of our product and know that you will be more than satisfied with your set of new gold or diamond teeth. We stand behind this authenticity guarantee with a full money back refund on any order that does not meet your expectations.
We have all of our finished grillz tested and authenticated by a third-party jewelry appraiser. We fully guarantee that all of our finished grillz will meet the specifics of your order, give or take .2gold karat. Each gold piece has minor fluctuations in the actual gold purity and it is impossible to have every piece be exactly 14Karat or 58.333% gold, but we do our best to make sure our goldcasters add extra gold to the alloy mixture as opposed to having less gold. This results in most of our pieces testing around 14.1K or 14.2K as opposed the 14K gold you purchased.
When it comes to diamonds, we purchase batches of conflict-free diamonds from trusted diamond dealers with decades of experience. When you purchase a diamond tooth with SI-Clarity stones, we guarantee that every stone will be SI-Clarity or better. There will be no lower-quality I-Clarity stones. The same holds true for our VS+ and VVS+ diamond teeth options. Note: If you order an SI-Clarity Diamond Grill from us, there will likely be a mixture ofSI-Clarity stones and VS-Clarity Stones. We will always lean toward using nicer diamonds asopposed to using lower-quality stones.

1. Return Period
Please do not order without careful consideration. Keep in mind that our products are delicately handmade to the highest standards and take days to finish. From the day a customer receives their set of custom grillz, the customer has 24-hours to notify us if there are any fitment issues or if the order was not made to specifications.
All sales are final after 24-hours of receipt of the finished product and Luxe reserves the right to address each timely return claim on a case-by-case basis, pending review of the order details and specifications.
1. Refunds or Exchanges
Luxe creates custom products only. Absolutely no refund or exchange on custom products.
Once ordered, Luxe begins the manufacturing process for your custom grillz. Mold kits are shipped and taken, designs created, and other services performed. If you decide to cancel your order prior to receipt of the finished product, you will be entitled to the return of 25% - 50% of the purchase price, depending on the extent of work that has been performed. As each piece is custom made, Luxe reserves the right to determine the return payment amount on a case-by-case basis. Again, please order with careful consideration.
3. Defective products
Luxe is extremely cautious in ensuring that each product strictly complies with our quality criteria and that it has passed all our controls, both technical and aesthetic. If nevertheless, you receive a product that seems to be damaged, you may return it to Luxe. Upon receipt, Luxe may classify the returned product as a defective product. Please note that items that are damaged as a result of wear and tear are not considered to be defective. If your product is declared as defective by Luxe, the following solutions will be proposed to the customer, as applicable:
1. Luxe may send you the same product in the exact same size, subject to availability,
2. Luxe may propose an exchange for another Luxe creation of equivalent or higher value, in which case the initial price will be deducted and you will be required to pay only the difference, or
3. You may request a refund of the full price of your initial purchase
Method of Payment: If you are granted a refund by a Luxe Grillz representative (by any amount up to 50% as described above), it is our policy to only accept issuing refunded funds to the original method of payment. This means, Luxe Grillz will only issue refunded funds to the card in which the original purchase was made; or, if you paid cash in person and the matter/refund was agreed upon by aLuxe Grillz representative, you may be entitled to receiving those refunded funds in cash (if this was your original payment method). Please be advised that Luxe Grillz does not issue refunds to any other individual, a different card, nor any third-party payment method (this is not limited to, but includes: Venmo, Zelle, Paypal, CashApp, etc).
Our mold kits usually ship 1-2 business days after receiving clear payment. Our mold kits will be shipped via USPS or FedEx and arrive at your address in about 1-5 business days for USA residents, and a little bit longer than that for international customers.
After we receive your mold, it will take us about 7-10 business days to have your gold grillz professionally casted by our in-house team of gold casters. If you ordered diamond grillz, please allow for an extra 7-10 days for us to have all of the diamonds set by our professional diamond setters.
If you are located outside of Los Angeles, you are responsible to pay for shipping and the mold kit. You will be in charge of paying for the shipping of your molds back to our office and the fully-insured shipping of your finished grillz to your residence. When your grillz are complete, we will send you a custom invoice to your email which will cover the cost of insured shipping for your finished grillz. If you are in Los Angeles, you can have your molds taken in-person free of charge and you can also pick up the finished grillz.
We will add your tracking number after dropping off your mold kit and finished set of grillz with USPS or FedEx.
If your molds do not come out the right way, you will be responsible to buy a new mold kit and pay to have it shipped back to you.
International Shipping: Customers who place orders from outside of the United States will be responsible for paying a custom invoice sent directly to their email, because the price of international shipping is more expensive than shipping in domestically in the United States
