Please note that the

This component is not as basic as just putting the gemstones in the package and delivering the package to the local destination in India.
Please be aware that under no circumstances that the package be sent without certification, insurance, etc. We will not do it and this is the value we want to deliver to our patrons and this is one of the many reasons that we have a 100% record at safety and delivery and give you the phenomenal lifetime buyback facility.
We charge actuals on all these individual components. Just the Shipping component depends on package weight and patron location. Hence these charges vary for Nagpur, Delhi etc. If any extra amount is in excess a refund cheque is sent with the package to the patron.
In majority of the cases especially in Semi Precious gemstones a small amount comes extra for shipping component for which we do not charge the patron and make it complimentary.
