Gemstoneuniverse Coronavirus Update May 4, 2020

 

Dear Patrons, Clients, Viewers

The Government of India has extended the Lockdown due to COVID-19 to May 17, 2020. However the Government has allowed the Jewellery stores to be opened with limited staff.

At the very outset, “A BIG THANK YOU” to those patrons who still placed orders despite the lockdown and the related uncertainty. You are a star and proved that YOU ARE A GEM in the real sense.

The Gemstoneuniverse Boutique Store and the Gemstoneuniverse Bench Jewellery Workshop shall be open from May 5th, 2020 onwards from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm, on all days till further notice. We shall receive visitors/ clients and patrons keeping all Covid-19 prevention measures.

The original Coronavirus Advisory & POA that was issued by Gemstoneuniverse on March 15th 2020(Down below on this page) still holds good and is at the top of The Home Page and every single page at Gemstoneuniverse.

Consultations at Bangalore Boutique Store: All Astrological, Spiritual and Life Success consultations with Abhijita Kulshrestha Ji are now open. You may schedule your appointments by calling: Ph: +91-80-25216611, Mob: +91-9448207777

Delivery of your Gemstones, rings and Pendants in Bangalore: The bench jewellery workshop is now open and we shall set your Gemstones in your desired rings/ pendants. For a limited time we shall co contact less door delivery of the same should you like it that way. Otherwise you are always welcome to come down to the store and collect them in person.

Gemstone Reports: All Gemstone reports are on Time (We are pleased to have maintained our 23 year record - Not a single delay).

We are taking new orders at our Gem Gallery, now. Your rings / pendants will be made in the order of date received and these will be processed and shipped.

Domestic Orders and Shipments

The online orders of Gemstones set in ring / pendant shall be shipped only once the domestic flights are functional. The postal authorities are taking the booking, but since the domestic flights and trains are not operation, the packages are taking very long time and there is no certainty as by when the package will be delivered to the final destination. We suggest that we prepare and consecrate your packages and keep them in our secure vault till there is some predictability in delivery.

The package shipments in New Delhi, UP, Mumbai, Pune (and other cities of Maharashtra), Punjab, Telangana, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and all major states in India, shall take time for final delivery. We are likely to do the shipments post 17th of May only once the lockdown is over and the situation is normal all over India, and once the domestic flights are operation, which shall ensure faster movements of packages and final delivery.

International Shipments

The international shipments / all export shipments are currently on hold, as the international flights have not resumed. This shall take some time-till we have confirmed updates from postal authorities that the packages are being abroad and there is guaranteed door delivery. We suggest that we prepare and consecrate your packages and keep them in our secure vault till there is some predictability in delivery.

We thank you all for your faith, trust and confidence.
