Guarantee of Authenticity
At Riverbend Gallery, we want our customers to be completely satisfied with their purchases. To ensure this, WE FULLY GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR ITEMS, while also offering our customers a general 30 day return/refund period, during which time items may be returned for ANY REASON. After the initial 30 day return/refund period has passed, customers may rest assured that all antiquities and artifacts sold by Riverbend Gallery are guaranteed to be authentic and ancient, and may be returned for a full refund at any time if determined otherwise. (For further details concerning our return/refund policies, please refer to our Return/Refund Policy & Guarantee of Authenticity sections found on our SALES POLICY page.)
All ancient items for sale by Riverbend Gallery have been carefully and thoroughly examined by a degree-holding Anthropologist with both field and lab experience in Archaeology. We have extensive experience in handling antiquities and artifacts, and stand behind our assessments of authenticity, age, cultural affiliation, and condition. If any item sold by Riverbend Gallery is determined by a recognized, qualified professional to be significantly other than stated, the customer may return the item for a full refund of the original purchase price.
For added assurance, a certificate guaranteeing the authenticity of each applicable item is AVAILABLE (FREE) UPON REQUEST. Each certificate includes a photograph of the item, a full description, and a statement guaranteeing the item to be ancient and genuine. For those interested in receiving a certificate guaranteeing authenticity, please indicate this preference when placing your order. (Certificates are not provided unless requested in an effort to conserve resources and limit unecessary operating costs to pass those savings on to our customers.)
