We ship and resupply multiple times a week.

Retail order (B2C) and wholesale order (B2B) have different shipping and handling rate. If your order contains both wholesale and non-wholesale items, it will be considered as a wholesale order. Any non-wholesale item will not be counted toward the calculation of a wholesale order. In other words, retail items are shipped free along wholesale items.

Due to the volume of orders we process, we normally ship every Tuesday, Friday, and occassionally Saturday for all orders placed before each dispatch date's deadline. We cannot provide rush service due to our process structure. All orders will be sent out by HongKong Post and delivered by your local postal service.

We currently offer a flat-rate shipping and handling fee for certain countries and shipping methods. The following fee covers at least one shipping. We do not charge extra for any additional shipping due to backordered items. Please see backorder near the bottom for more information.

Backorder We welcome anyone placing backorder on any item that is not available immediately. In fact, some items will not be available unless you place a backorder (production order). We have guidelines governing the shipping frequency for orders containing backorder items. We usually ship once a week until your order is fulfilled. We do not charge extra for any additional shipping. All additional shipping will be by registered airmail only. Frequency is the sole decision of our distribution operation. Any special shipping request may require additional shipping fee.
Holiday Schedule Holiday of Hong Kong, Austria, and your country may cause a delay in delivery. Please check the holiday schedule if time is a concern for you. We resupply from the Austria factory directly twice per week and cargo flight might get cancelled during the holiday.
Tax, VAT, & Duty Please be advised that you will be the sole importer of any item shipped from a foreign country. You will be responsible for any tax and/or duty your country impose on the goods. Customs of your country may also delay your shipment, which is an issue we do not, nor the shipping company, have any control over.

We ship orders from multiple cities on earth but majority of orders is shipping from Hong Kong. Why do we choose to ship items from Hong Kong?
There are a few advantages:

  • By cargo traffic and international passenger traffic, Hong Kong International Airport is ranked the second and fifth busiest airport in the World, respectively. That means there are more direct flights to different locations around the world within a reasonable time.
  • Subsequently, the postage is generally lower because of the high traffic movement.
  • The government does not impose any tax regulation related to goods, regardless of sale, import, or export. This makes the distribution procedure faster and more cost effective.
  • The biggest Swarovski distribution in Asia is located in Hong Kong - more stocks are available in a shorter time.
