Regular Airmail shipping and handling is a flat rate of between US $5-$7 for the first strand/piece to anywhere in the world depending on the weight of the strand. Additonal strands are charged $0.50 thereafter. To further clarify the quantity in multiple strand purchases, say you are purchasing 3 strands of A and 2 strands of B, then the total number of items is 5 and NOT 2, since you are buying 5 strands total. Please note that for most items, S&H for the first item starts at $5 but for some items which are heavier, the S&H for that may be more than $5, e.g $6 or $7. If multiple items are purchased, then the first item cost will be the highest S&H charge, and the others will be counted as additonal combined items. However I reserve the right to change this per strand S&H charge to actual shipping costs, especially in the case when you are purchasing multiple strands of large, heavy beads. In these cases, the per strand fee structure would not be able to adequately cover the shipping costs so you will be charged for actual shipping fees. Keep in mind that this is INTERNATIONAL AIRMAIL from HONG KONG as opposed to your local postal service, so it can get a bit expensive sometimes. If you are not in a hurry, I can always have your package sent by surface mail to save on shipping fees. Or if you are in a hurry, I can also send it by EMS Courier/Speedpost (US equivalent would be Global Express mail) of even Fedex. Just email me to let me know. For extra security, add $2 to the total to send by Registered mail. Insurance is optional at $1.30 for every $50 worth of items. It usually takes about 10-14 days from the date it was sent using Regular Airmail from Hong Kong to the US. This is just an estimate since actual delivery time depends heavily on the efficiency of both the Hong Kong Postal service and USPS, and it has been known to take a whole month! MiGem will NOT be responsible for any loss if insurance is not purchased. Returns for any reason are accepted within a week of receipt provided that the item is in its original condition. Return shipping will be at your own cost. You may use the credit for a new order or we can refund the item cost to you. Shipping and insurance costs are not refundable. Special orders & items from the Clearance sections are not refundable.
