We can also manually process your credit card if you get into any problems.

Items Requiring Expedited Shipping

We can ship items by Express Mail or other overnight delivery services at additional cost if you ask for it. We will try to ship your jewelry, gemstone and other gifts items within 2 business days (often within 1) except during holiday rush times when it may take longer.

Because the vitamins and supplements are not stocked and are ordered from the factory everyday, these items will take 4 business days to ship. Sometimes we can expedite your order by having the orders shipped direct from the factory to you by UPS 2nd day air service. However, international orders cannot be direct shipped from the factory. So, please allow a minimum of 4 business days for international orders for vitamins and supplements.

Damaged Items

If your package is damaged on shipment, please file a report with your delivering courier right away as well as inform us with your order number. Any damages noticed must be reported within 5 days of receiving your items.

Returning Items

Due to the FDA rules, vitamins and supplements and other health items cannot be returned once opened. Unopened items can be returned within 15 days subject to a restocking fee.

Jewelry, gemstones, and other gift items can be returned within 30 days.

More details can be found at our Merchandise Return Policy.

International Shipments

Any additional costs such as duty, VAT, etc. charged by foreign governments are your responsibility. We have no control over how long an item stays in customs etc. It is our observation that items shipped via Global Express Mail tend to be processed quicker than those shipped via air mail. FedEx, DHL etc. tend to expedite the customs handling; but they do cost considerably more than the cost for standard Global Priority Mail or Global Express Mail. Please note that Global Priority Mail cannot be tracked; express mail can be. Also Global Priority Mail is only available to very few countries; for everywhere lese we have to send it by normal air mail. We are not responsible for damages or delays incurred at customs etc.
