What do the shipping days mean? (When will my order be shipped?)
Shipping days are the number of days we take to prepare your package and deliver to the courier company. The shipping days are clearly mentioned on each product page. This will typically vary depending on the product you purchased, whether you want it studded in a piece of jewelry, or if you want an additional lab certificate along with it. For example, a loose gemstone is usually shipped in 1-2 days. However, a gemstone requested to be studded in a ring, will typically take 4-5 days. Similarly, a requested gemstone with an additional laboratory 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 the next day to 3 days. For non-metros, our courier partners usually take 2 days - 7 days to deliver the product from the date of shipment. The date of shipment depends on the product you buy (loose stones, or mounted on jewelry) and this date is indicated on the product page.
