We are happy to offer a same day courier to London addresses, provided we have the item in stock. Please contact us at the atelier for more details.
DELIVERY TO FRANCE
Shipments of fine jewellery to France by law require a French broker to handle customs clearance. This means that when your shipment arrives in France, FedEx will get in contact with you to appoint a French customs broker to complete the process (we can recommend a broker if required, if so please contact us). Your choice of broker will be responsible for taking charge of the shipment from FedEx, clearing it from customs, and organising the delivery to your address in France. Please note that this broker will be at your expense. VAT will also be payable on each shipment. Please familiarise yourself with the clearance costs involved by contacting the French customs authorities, as we are unable to advise you or assist in this respect.
For international deliveries we use a fully insured priority courier service with FedEx that endeavours to deliver the package in 1-5 days (pending customs delays) depending on where in the world the item is being sent.
Ruth Tomlinson Ltd cannot be held responsible for any delays caused by customs checks in the country of destination. Please familiarise yourself with your country's local import processes for receiving international deliveries. Any customs charges, associated handling fees and local taxes are the sole responsibility of the customer. A tracking number will be supplied via email when your order has been dispatched.
Our gift vouchers are generated digitally and will be emailed to you. If you’d prefer a physical gift voucher, please contact us directly. Your gift vouchers will be sent via Royal Mail Recorded 1st Class post or International Airmail.
HOW YOUR ORDER WILL ARRIVE
Your order will be dispatched in an unbranded external envelope or box. The jewellery is packaged in a branded Ruth Tomlinson jewellery box, which is protected by tissue paper. If the recipient and shipping address is different to those of the person who placed the order, we will assume that the order is a gift and a receipt will not be included in the package. If you would like a personal message to accompany any gift orders, please contact us directly.
All gift vouchers will be sent in a thick paper envelope.
