If your purchase is a surprise, or you are unable to be home for delivery, you may arrange for your package to be held at a FedEx Ship Center where it will be held for up to five business days until retrieved by you, or the person you designate. Other shipping location options include a trusted friend or family member or your work address. Contact our Diamond & Jewelry Consultants for help.

Once your order has shipped, you will receive a confirmation email that allows you to track your order. For orders under $1,000 this email will contain your FedEx tracking number. For orders $1,000 and over, you can view the latest tracking updates on your order status page.
If your order is over $1,000, we require a signature for delivery regardless of any waivers you have with FedEx. If your order is under $1,000, FedEx may require a signature at the driver's discretion. UPS requires a signature upon delivery for all international orders, regardless of value.
