Duties and Taxes
When shipping to China
or the United Arab Emirates
, duties and/or taxes will be collected in the cart during the checkout process. For all other orders, Blue Nile does not collect taxes and duties upfront in the cart at time of purchase. Upon receipt of your shipment you will be responsible for all applicable taxes and duties, payable to Customs or the shipping carrier.
Check with the customs office in your country or our International Shipping Policies
page for current, estimated rates.
Each item will arrive in a soft fabric pouch or a box inside a Blue Nile gift box. View the shipping details tab the bottom of each product page to see how your order will be presented.
Loose diamonds or built rings will be presented in a ring box. Loose diamonds will be held in place by a tension-secured spring ring for presentation purposes only and should not be worn.
Hold For Pickup and Other Alternate Delivery Options
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 UPS Hold For Pick-Up location 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.
