Frequently Asked Questions: Shipping within India
What does the Days to Dispatch mean? (How soon will my order be shipped?)
The Days of Dispatch is the number of days we take to ready your package and hand over to the courier company. The days for dispatch is clearly mentioned on each product page. This will typically vary based on what product you purchased, whether you want it to be studded in a jewellery piece, or you want an additional lab certificate along with it. For example, a loose gemstone typically gets shipped in 1-2 days. However, a gemstone requested to be studded in a ring, will typically take 4-5 days. Similarly, a gemstone requested with an additional lab certificate will take even longer.
How long does it take to deliver my order?
Our courier partners typically deliver orders to Metro cities in India within Next Day to 3 Days. For non-metros, our courier partners typically take 2 days - 7 days to deliver the product from the date of dispatch. The date of dispatch is dependant on the product that you purchase (loose gemstone, or mounted in jewelry) and this date is stated on the product page.

Please note that certain courier companies have restrictions on carrying certain types of natural gemstones and jewellery outside India. For example: Aramex may not carry gold jewellery, FedEx may refuse a certain type of natural gemstone, etc. For such gemstones, the orders are dispatched from the next best courier, or through the alternate express shipper EMS SpeedPost which does not have such restrictions (takes upto 5-15 days to deliver). This usually affects a small number of orders and courier policies may vary with time. Please feel free to contact our customer support team before placing your order to know the situation at that time.

What about Custom Charges, Duties, etc.?
Please be advised that we are not responsible for any custom charges, duties, VAT, etc. that your country may be charging as these vary from case-to-case and are beyond our reach.

Additionally, professional buyers can also recover the VAT. You are advised to contact your local customs for any clarification. Additionally, feel free to contact us, and we may in some cases have older experiences from customers to share.
Also, please note that for international orders that AFTER dispatch, are either refused by the customer, or cancelled, the customer will be liable for all custom duties and VAT charged by their country, in order to return the items back to us. Only after receipt of the item by us, any balance due to the customer, less all fees, custom duties and VAT, will be refunded to the customer as per the refund timeline.
