Order Status

Our order status page provides the latest updates, offering the same information that's available to our Diamond and Jewelry Consultants. Once your order has shipped, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that allows you to track your order. To ensure the security of your package, this email will not contain a FedEx® tracking number for orders over $1,000.00, but the package will still be trackable via the email. Contact a Diamond and Jewelry Consultant at 800-242-2728 should you need assistance.

Shipping to APO and FPO Addresses

Blue Nile will ship any order under $25,000 to an APO / FPO address. Blue Nile ships all APO & FPO orders via USPS Priority Mail. For more information on shipping to APO / FPO addresses, please visit our Military Shipping page.

International Deliveries and Arrival Times

All international orders will be shipped, with no additional charge, via FedEx International Priority®. Please note that the arrival times listed on the Web site apply to U.S. shipping addresses only. Estimates of the international shipping delivery times can be provided by one of our Diamond and Jewelry Consultants at service@bluenile.com or +1-206-336-7900. For more information about international shipments, including important information about import duties and taxes, please view our International Shipping Policies.

Signature Requirements For Delivery

If your delivery is over $1,000 we require a signature for delivery regardless of any waivers you have from FedEx®. If your delivery is under $1,000 and shipped FedEx Priority Overnight®, FedEx® may require a signature. These requirements are for your protection. If you would like to arrange delivery to a FedEx® location call one of our customer service agents at 800-242-2728.

Since jewelry is often given for engagement or another special occasion, we will be extremely flexible to help you create a wonderful surprise. We can expedite your delivery for a fast-approaching special occasion, or we can ship your order to an address other than your home to help you maintain your surprise. And please don't hesitate to contact one of our diamond and jewelry consultants for any special requests.
