Most packages out of BVGW are sent USPS Priority Flat Rate Box in order to secure safe shipment to the buyer. Tracking is placed on every shipment if possible. Priority does cover a $50 insurance fee. Anything over $50, I do suggest insurance for the value of the order with the insurance charge being passed on to the buyer. If the customer does not wish to pay for this additional insurance, then shipment is at the customer's risk. Orders over $100 in value will be sent fully insured. Registered mail will be required on shipments over $1,000 or so at my discretion, and will require an additional amount of postage at buyer's expense. These shipments will require you to sign for them. For packages totaling less than $50, at BVGW's discretion, package may be shipped USPS first class with no insurance and tracking.

International Mail BVGW does not normally ship outside the USA and Canada due to tracking and security problems. If we decide to do so, we will ship the most secure and economical method as possible. You will be charged the actual shipping costs we incur. If postal insurance to your country does not cover value of product(s), shipment will be at your risk. If a customs declaration is necessary, we will comply with that country's request.

Other Mailing Methods If you desire other mailing methods, please let me know and I will try to accommodate. Note: Loose gemstones cannot be sent via UPS because they will not insure the package. Mineral specimens and jewelry, however, can be via UPS.
