Frequently Asked Questions by Alumnae
What happens if my Meredith ring is damaged or I lose it?
Jostens provides a lifetime warranty of your college ring if it is ever cracked, dented or damaged in some way.
All you have to do is call them and they will walk you through the steps to getting it fixed.
If you lose your ring in the first 4 years Jostens does offer a replacement for a small fee. If you choose to add an extended warranty for loss up to 6 years, it is $29.
However, if you lose your ring after 4 years, you will have to pay the full cost of the ring to replace it. Josten's Customer Service line is (800) 854-7464.
