Order Processing Time
The order processing time is the time it takes to have your order ready for shipment. Unless noted otherwise in the product description, the order processing time is normally 1-2 business day(s) for standard stock items, 4-5 business days for Design It Your Way* items, and an additional day for ring sizing if applicable. Special Order items require about 5 additional days for processing.
*Design It Your Way items are pieces of jewelry that require stone setting, engraving or any other customization specified by the customer.
Domestic (i.e. USA) orders are usually shipped via FedEx or the United States Postal Service (USPS). Domestic orders over $100 are shipped FREE of charge. For your protection, all orders are fully insured.
Standard Shipping usually takes 2-4 business days from the time of shipment to most major US cities. By taking the order processing time mentioned above into consideration, the estimated delivery time of a standard stock item, for example, is 3-5 business days. This includes order processing time plus standard shipping time.
Express Shipping usually takes 1-2 business days from the time of shipment to most major US cities. The Express Shipping option is available for an extra charge. If you select Express Shipping, please be aware that only shipping may be expedited but not the order processing time as mentioned above.
For International shipments, we usually use FedEx , UPS, or DHL. International orders normally take 1-3 weeks for delivery. Customs clearance time varies by country. In most cases, it is completed within hours. Please check with your local Customs Authority for more information.
The buyer's government-issued photo I.D. and signature will be required upon delivery of all domestic and international orders. You may refer to the Order Status link in your order confirmation email at any time to get an update on the status of your order. Refused, undeliverable, or unclaimed packages will be charged an additional 10% handling fee, plus return postage.
Domestic & International Shipping
Domestic (USA): Stellar Jewelry ships to only validated addresses within the 50 United States, APO/FPO military addresses as well as major offshore territories and protectorates of the United States of America. For your security, and to minimize any possible fraud, we are linked to the Automated Verification System (AVS) to authorize and authenticate all credit cards transactions. In other words, we verify that the order information you provide us matches with the information on file with your card-issuing bank. Only credit and debit cards issued in the United States are accepted for US orders. International shipping charges apply to all items imported into the United States.
International (Canada & United Kingdom): Stellar Jewelry ships to only validated addresses within Canada and the United Kingdom. We also use the Automated Verification System (AVS) to authorize and authenticate all credit cards transactions for orders going to Canada and the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland). In addition to major credit cards, bank wire transfers are also accepted for Canada & UK orders. International shipping charges apply to all Canada & UK orders.
IMPORTANT (For US, Canada & UK orders): For your security and for your own protection from any possible fraud, we can only ship to your billing address on file with your card-issuing bank. If you wish to have your order shipped to an address that is different from your billing address, you will have to call your card-issuing bank first to update your billing address, then return to our web site to place your order. Alternatively, you may choose to pay us via bank wire transfer before we may process your order. Please contact us for instructions.
International (All other countries i.e. excluding USA, Canada, and the United Kingdom) Bank wire transfers are accepted for all other international orders. Your bank wire transfer payment must be received before we can process your order. Please contact us for details. International shipping charges apply to all international orders.
If you live outside the United States, you also have the option of making arrangements with a friend or family member of yours who resides in the USA and have her/him place the order for you first, have it shipped to her/his own billing address, then forward it to you overseas upon receipt. Some international customers have reported that they are successfully using courier services provided by international carriers like DHL or Aramex International.
Import Duties & VAT (Value Added Tax)
For all international orders, the buyer will be responsible for any local taxes and/or import duties if applicable. Many countries have a Value Added Sales Tax (VAT), which is charged when an item crosses into their border. VAT is charged in addition to applicable duties. It is the buyer's responsibility to know how much tax and/or duties will be charged. Please check with your local Postal Service Office for customs regulations and import laws. The United States Council for International Business has a good site dedicated to providing some rough estimates for international taxes and duties. Click here for details.

We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, eCheck and Google Wallet (a.k.a. Google Checkout). We also accept bank wire transfers particularly for international shipments. Please contact us for details.

Returned items must be in good condition to qualify for an exchange.

We will then email you the return instructions along with your Exchange Authorization Number (EAN).

In order to protect the package against any possible theft, please write the return address exactly as it is provided to you and be careful not to write words like "jewelry", "diamond" or "ring". In addition, please do not ship us any other items or documents that were not included in the original package in the first place. Stellar Jewelry is not responsible for any packages, items, or documents shipped without a valid online Delivery Confirmation or Tracking Number or that were lost in transit. Should it happen, please call your shipping carrier to file a claim.
If you wish to cancel your order, you must contact us to get an Order Cancellation Number (OCN) no later than one hour after your order is submitted for processing. Otherwise, all orders are final and our Exchange/Return policy will apply. We will do everything we can to accommodate your request.

As a result, we may not be able to cancel or change an order once it has entered the shipping process.
