Vault Rewards is a loyalty program designed to recognize our customer’s loyalty and commitment. The Program is free to join with a tiered membership structure designed to be simple, easy and rewarding. You will earn 1 Gem for every one dollar spent in-store and online. Gems add up to unlock different membership tier statuses and member-only benefits. View Terms & Conditions.

To join, start by creating an account.

You earn Gems upon enrolling in Vault Rewards and making a purchase in store or online. To earn Gems for an online purchase you must be logged into your Vault Rewards account. You will earn 1 Gem for every dollar spent. Amount spent will be rounded up to the nearest dollar to determine the number of Gems earned per purchase. For example, a purchase of $99.49 will earn 100 Gems. Gems are not earned on tax or shipping charges or on the purchase of gift cards.

Any Gems earned on a purchase of an order that is cancelled or item returned, will be deducted from your Gem balance.

No, Vault Rewards is an independent rewards program and not affiliated with the credit card program perks and benefits at this time.

There are two (2) timelines associated with membership tier status. The qualification period to earn Gems (Jan 1 – Dec 31) and the Program tier status period (Feb 1 - Jan 31).

  • The number of Gems earned anytime during a calendar year (Jan 1 - Dec 31) will determine your membership tier status. Every member’s Gem earning qualification period starts over on Jan 1.
  • Your membership tier status is valid from Feb 1, or the day you enroll in the Program, through Jan 31 the following year. Membership tier status is evaluated annually on Feb 1, based on the prior calendar year’s Gem earning. Membership tier status and associated benefits will last through the next Program tier status period (Jan 31 the following year). For example:
    • If you have Ruby status on Dec 31, 2021, the qualification period will start over on Jan 1, 2022 and your Gem balance will return to zero. Minus any adjustments to your Gem balance resulting in a tier reduction (returned merchandise), your Ruby status will remain valid through Jan 31, 2023. As long as you continue to qualify for a particular membership tier status, it will last through the next Program tier status period (Jan 31 the following year)

No, at this time benefits cannot be shared or combined across member accounts.

If you have agreed to participate in marketing communications as a Vault Rewards member you may receive email communications with select banner loyalty offers. Or you can sign into your Zales account and view any offers you might be eligible to participate in for a Vault Rewards promotion in your digital dashboard. View Vault Rewards member only offers.

White gold is an alloy of yellow gold mixed with light colored alloys, such as nickel, to give it a white appearance.

Ask a jewelry consultant for details.

Rubies, sapphires and emeralds are precious gemstones. All other gemstones are referred to as semi-precious.

Lab-created stones are formed in a controlled environment, whereas natural gemstones are formed by mother nature's natural processes. Both share the same physical, chemical and visual properties.
