SHIPPING COST GUIDES

The following charts will help you estimate the cost beforehand.

Herisson Rose ships worldwide from France.

*   *   *

(GERMAN CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE: Currently I am experiencing difficulties complying with VerpackG : Namely: I can't find a Licence Distributor that will accept my SIRET Tax code instead of a VAT number.

Therefore, I have been unable to register/comply with your country's Recycling of Packaging law, and have temporarily suspended sales to Germany until I can sort this out. 

My sincere apologies for any disappointment this might cause.

I  hope to ship again to Germany very soon.

Wherever possible I use Letter or Large Letter to mail my jewelry.

 

This provides good value shipping for small items, and with Airmail it will usually arrive in 7-14 days to the US.

 

Please note that around May** and Christmas it may take longer - last year USPS were stars and everything arrived within 14 days.

However it may take up to 28 days - for example if delayed at Customs, by labour strikes, or adverse weather events.

 

( ** "Why May?" You ask. Answer: France has THREE Public Holidays, straight after the Easter one. Backlogs happen, mail processing slows down.. so please allow an extra week if ordering in late May.)

 

*   *   *

Items ship well packed in bubble wrap, padded envelopes, cute paper birdcage gift boxes, and individual organza bags - as light as possible but still well protected.

 

Please note: since many of my crystals arrive in abundant packaging and reams of bubble wrap, I strive to re-cycle this wherever possible (ie cut it up and use again to protect my jewelry in transit)

 

Larger necklaces (below) ship Insured and Tracked and boxed in recycled high quality black card boxes.

 

Orders over 70 Euros (about 80 USD - it varies!) are automatically upgraded to ship by Tracked and Insured at no extra cost.

Larger necklaces are priced for Insured and Tracked shipping (not free or even cheap in my country)

 

Many are heavy and delicate items since they are made of precious stones - hence the cost.

 

The real cost is now much higher for me since LaPoste raised the rates again in 2019 for International Tracked mail to locations outside of France and the EU Plus for some destinations I have paperwork to fill in, which can't always be done online.

 

Price depends on weight band - but the shipping charged here is flat rate + per item for convenience.

 

Necklaces ship in high quality black jewelry presentation boxes made of recycled card, with a black velvet lining. They are tied in securely place with Organza ribbon, then packed well with tissue paper.

 

Delicate stones may be protected further with more bubble wrap.

 

The box is then wrapped in bubble wrap (Note: ALL of this plastic packaging is recycled), and posted in a bubble-lined envelope.

(My envelopes are FFC Certified CO2 and Climate Neutral, made with paper from sustainable resources)

 

Bonus free gifts and occasional envelope doodles!

The Big Boys. Very large and heavy pendants.

 

The real cost to me is again higher than the rates charged here  - 14 to 25+ euros depending on his size, weight, value, and destination.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
