Most people who have bought this work in the past
nearly always, preferred a personal delivery to the use of shipping company.
the issue is not just about safety, or the possibility of duty charges for something that can not really be evaluate in a commercial sense!
It is also, or even foremost, energetically.
A small network of friends around the world often makes this a practical and energetically nice option.
Yet it carries no insurance and sending in this way is within the responsibilities of the buyer!
The large regular international shipping companies [used to] carry no full value insurance for jewellery… things may have changed and if i get new encouraging information I will update it into this page. In general, I may refuse to ship my work with these companies!
I cannot guarantee the safe arrival of work once it has left the studio. I will arrange for the sending or shipping according to the agreement made with the buyer, Work once out of the studio is at the buyer’s own risk.
Even-though there was never a problem in the past! it is important to me to address these issues clearly.
Shipping with one of the fully insured carriers is a good option! These are not the usual shipping services but specialized companies within the jewellery and gem trade circles.
These fully insured services are far more expensive then regular shippers.
