Within the United States, Ada Diamonds offers complimentary, fully-insured two-day shipping with Fedex for pieces up to $15,000 USD in value, and pieces over $15,000 USD are sent complimentary via fully-insured Fedex Priority Overnight when sent to a business or held for pick up at a Fedex Office location. Within the United States, shipments may not be sent to a residence. Shipments under $15,000 USD in value may be upgraded to Fedex Priority for $50 USD.
All shipments require signature upon delivery and may not be left unattended at a business location. It is strongly recommended to have a package sent to a Fedex Office location for pick up. It is strongly discouraged to send a shipment to a doorman residential building. Unclaimed packages, packages returned to Ada, or packages that must be re-routed to a new address due to client error carry a $75 USD re-shipping fee. If a shipping address is different from the billing address, additional documentation may be required. Ada Diamonds does not deliver to UPS stores.
For pieces with a value above $100,000 USD, armored delivery may be required through Brinks or Malca Amit. Signature is required upon delivery.
Shipments are fully insured while shipments are in transit and up until the point of signature, at which point liability for loss or theft is transferred to the customer. Ada Diamonds encourages clients to insure fine jewelry using personal jewelry insurance. Insurance on shipping covers damage or loss to the physical jewelry. Ada Diamonds is not responsible for damage done to packaging during transit, such as a dented shipping box. Ada Diamonds does not guarantee next day or two-day delivery due to Fedex and weather delays. We recommend allowing for two additional business days for time sensitive shipments, especially during the months of November and December. A valid phone number is required for all shipments.
