For parcels containing goods that require gemological examination (stone and precious metal products), you must make the examination yourself and attach the documents on the examination to the package with the documents. If the stones are untreated or in the form of sand, then bring or send them only in a sealed box by a gemologist.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE PARCEL IN CASE OF NON-DELIVERY
Returns are free of charge to our warehouse in Miami, USA.
The shipment can be stored in the warehouse for 30 business days. During this time, you need to make a decision about this parcel, otherwise it will be disposed of. Please note the date of disposal. We store the parcel free of charge for 30 days.
If after 30 days you do not inform us where to send it (return it to you or to a new customer), the parcel will be disposed of. There will be no additional notifications in this regard, so we recommend that you note for yourself the date of disposal by which you need to make a decision on your parcel.
Within the above 30 days, you can resell the item and we will send it to the new buyer's address (you will only pay the actual cost of shipping from Miami to the buyer), or you can request a return to our Fulfillment Center in Miami and store it there longer.
There are three options:
1. The parcel will be automatically disposed of if you do not inform us of a different decision during this time.
2. You can create and send us a new label to send the package to the same or a new recipient.
3. If the parcel is relevant to the buyer, please specify the address and contact phone number. Create a new label. We will send a request to the carrier for re-delivery.
