For several months I've been working on researching and sourcing materials for new packaging and new delivery methods for my handmade jewellery. I'm very happy to announce that the changes to both packaging and delivery are now all officially in place!
Each piece of jewellery purchased from the handmade jewellery shop now comes in a lovely cotton-filled jewellery box.
These sturdy boxes are made from recycled card which has been covered in a slightly glossy and textured white paper. The boxes are perfect for keeping your treasures in or for giving jewellery as a gift - including if you purchase a gift to be sent straight to the recipient.
Inside each box will be a brochure with jewellery care instructions and details of the name and materials for the piece in the box.
All jewellery orders will now be sent in larger mailing boxes than used in the past. The larger boxes mean the deliveries will be regarded as 'parcels' by Australia Post rather than 'large letters'.
For delivery within Australia all parcels will now automatically come with tracking. This will be helpful should there be any problems with your order arriving.
Standard delivery is still free within Australia and you'll get a free upgrade to Express Post for orders of $180 or more. You can also opt to upgrade to Express Post if your order is smaller than this.
Parcels being sent outside of Australia by airmail will also come with tracking to the following countries:
- United Kingdom
- United States
- New Zealand
Unfortunately airmail tracking is not yet available to other countries, but post from Australia tends to be reliable and it is rare for anything to go missing.
International delivery currently costs up to $14.50 to most countries - it may be less than this depending on your location and if you have ordered a non-jewellery item such as a ring sizing kit.
You will be given the total cost of your order including delivery after you add your address and before you make payment.
