Frequently asked questions about shipping

  1. 1

    What customs regulations must be complied with upon entering the European Union Customs Territory?

    Jewelry and high value objects are subject to customs regulations upon their entry in the European Union Customs Territory:

    Specific information you should know:

    Are you an individual and are you buying goods abroad? If you exceed duty thresholds, you will need to declare your purchases yourself to customs upon your return to the European Union Customs Territory.

    Customs regulations regarding jewelry and high value objects for professionals:

    If you are a professional and you are bringing jewels and objects of value within the European Union Customs Territory in accompanied luggage, to present them for sale or to show them at an event; you will need to declare this merchandise to customs. Whether they are small, high value, or if they are entrusted to another party, items of jewelry are not covered by any status of exemption. You have to provide a detailed invoice and a packing list at customs through the "goods to be declared" line prior to leaving the terminal.

    That is where we'll meet you to manage the customs procedures and keep the goods in a secure location. A temporary admission may be put in place so that you can avoid paying duties and taxes, provided you comply with the conditions of temporary admission put in place by the customs authority.

    Explain to us what you intend to do, and our specialists will assist with all of the formalities. Remember that a quick and smooth clearance through customs depends on anticipation. "A stitch in time saves nine" certainly applies when it comes to customs declarations!
